Kriega R25 Backpack
When you pick up this bag you can feel the quality. It feels like it could survive a nuclear blast. It's also very comfortable. I carry books in mine for college and the weight is distributed on my chest and lower back off my shoulders. It feels great! I also suggest getting the kube pocket, it's a great accessory. $189 is a steep price for a bag but I promise you it's worth it!

Love this Bag!!
I'm a daily commuter on my bike (32miles each way) and was wearing my old Targus laptop bag for over 6 months. At the time I felt like it was adequate, but that was until I broke down and bought the Kreiga R25. This bag feels like it's not even there and that's fully loaded. The aerodynamics are great and the zippered compartments are perfect. My only note is that the R25 is not as big as you would think. Honestly don't get me wrong I thought it was going to be too big. Instead the R25 is perfect for a daily commuter like myself. Highly recommend this purchase for anyone who is serious about biking and needs a backpack.

I didn't want to put bags on my newest bike, so I needed to get a backpack. It needed to be comfortable, big enough to carry my lunch or enough for a day trip. This bag was pricey, but totally worth it. No stress on my back, even when I hunch over. It's just feels...right.

Most comfortable backpack I've ever ridden with in 15 years of riding.
About the only thing that I can say that's not 100% positive about this backpack is that it really only has 2 main pockets. Has it been an issue? Absolutely not. As a matter of fact, I'm not in the riders' backpack designing business so maybe there's something here that Im not aware of because otherwise, Kriega NAILED it with this bag. Once properly setup, this thing STAYS in place and even with a full load, (enough clothes for 2 days, a 1" 3 ring binder, a pair of shoes and my hygiene kit), I completely forgot it was there less than 5 miles into a 150mi round trip at speeds of 75+ mph. As an un-intended bonus, I'm sure, I was able to route the chest straps through my passenger grab handles and secure the bag making it a 25L tail bag that stayed right in place for the same trip two days later. Kudos Kriega. As long as this thing holds up like you claim it will, you have a customer for life.

Awesome product right size and features for everyday use. Easy adjustment and enough volume to take my laptop with all other sundries to work. Have used it on both Ducatis with no fatigue after a 1.5 h daily ride. Recommended!

Rugged as you please
The bag is exactly what I had heard it is. The only detractor, and I am reaching here, is that it is a pain to fit. By fit I mean adjusting the upper and lower straps to make sure it hangs where I want it to. This was fixed within the first two days and it was never uncomfortable. Just took a while to get it 'just right'. No problems at all now that it is fitted and way comfortable.

This is hands down best backpack I have owned. It is large enough to carry what I need for my job daily. Plus the engineering of how it offloads the weight from the shoulders is amazing.

Best backpack you will find
OK so it's a little expensive but then what you get is something that is brilliantly designed, durable, waterproof and easy to use.
I have had my backpack for about 1 year soon and it has done some 6,000 miles in all kinds of weather and it has never missed a beat. It easily fits a 15” laptop and some basic change of clothes in the main compartment. The design leaves the shoulders free for full movement so most of the time I don’t notice I have it on at all. The weight is nicely distributed and the straps can be adjusted to your fit easily.
I have also used the US20 Litre bag as an extension of the backpack as it can be hooked onto the backpack with the provided straps and buckles. Handy for walking around town when you don’t want someone to nick off with you soft luggage.
