Kriega R25 Backpack
Very nice pack for commuting
Bought this primarily for commuting back and forth to work. Very comfortable, excellent adjustment features. Manage to fit work clothes, dress shoes, lunch, and smaller items pretty easily. Can get a bit noticeable with heavier loads but that doesn't happen often enough. Still prefer using tailbacks us10 and us20 for weekend rides so my upper body is free. But for commuting when getting on and off bike quickly is important (when trying to beat cage traffic every second counts) cannot beat a backpack. Thank goodness for Kriega and their hardcore british motorcyclist designers!

Comfortable, but NOT durable
This pack is super comfortable and adjust easily as advertised. The only problem I have with the pack is the nylon is extremely thin and wears quickly. I've been using it for approximately 3 months as a book bag (for college) while commuting approximately 50 miles per day and then toting it around campus. If Kriega would make it a little tougher it would be absolutely perfect!

What can I say besides that's it is a Great Overall Bag!!!
The bag is great! Comfortable to ride with because the adjustments on this bag is awsome. 25 liters is more than enough room for short ride and defintiley has the capacity for over night trips as well. The outer poach makes it convient for stuff that you need to get to quickly. I try to buy stuff that will last for years and this bag has a great construction to it. I think I'll be riding with this bag for many years!!
Buy this bag and you will not regret it!!

You can pack this thing down like you wouldn't believe. Also, I've driven through hours of rain with my ipad in the laptop sleeve, and it didn't get wet at all.

The perfect back pack...
I had concerns with the size of the R 25, but it's perfect. Leaving for work in the mornings I ride with cold weather clothes, then afternoons I have to strip down. You can pack this thing and it carries the load great. I read that you can barely feel it on your back, and it's true. It's very comfortable, aero, and stays in place. You can easily pack a weekend trip in it, but its not bulky with light loads. Some say that it needs more pockets, etc. If you need pockets buy a man purse. If you need to carry a load buy the Kriega R 25.

a well built backpack
I recently took this bag on a 1500 mile trip across Canada, and it performed perfectly. It has a large enough volume while fitting comfortably and snugly even for extended rides. It is great how you can tighten the pack based on how full it is, which saved me precious space with my bike loaded up.

Light and strong
I started off with the Kriega tailpack and liked it so much I thought I would try another product that would be functional and last. The backpack has great zippers it is well made and seeing as I don't carry a laptop very user friendly. I usually don't carry raingear around so my model hasn't seen the rain and that is just the way I like to ride. I have shown this pack to a few riders who had not heard of Kriega and they were impressed.

I've used all sorts of backpacks while riding. Kriega's shoulder strap system is definitely the best, it distributes the weight incredibly well. My only complaint is that it could use a bit more organizational pockets or clips for external additions.
