Jason B: I needed a pack with dry storage. Also, very concerned about comfort on longer rides, and the durability of the pack. This looks like it will meet my needs.May 22, 2015
Aaron L: a backpack that can handle water on the long tripsMay 20, 2015
Jeremy B: Waterproof is necessary in the Northwest. Definitely tired of securing down my rain cover. Looking forward to having a dry back on my commuteMay 13, 2015
Edward J: Reputation and website video reviewMar 25, 2015
Zachary H: I wanted something I don't have to baby. I am ruff on gear, no way around it. I don't purposely abuse it, but I never baby it. This had the waterproof compartment I needed as well as space and massive modularity to go along with it. That last part is probably my favorite thing about this bag. I dunno if this was intended or not, but the top straps on the side of the bag work WONDERS for strapping boots in upside down, extremely tight and well tucked.Feb 22, 2015
David F: Excellent reviews, great size, quality product.Feb 19, 2015
Aaron B: Reviews from Revzilla and other sitesFeb 4, 2015
Justin S: Needed a good waterproof commuter bag to tote work laptop and other riding gear in.Dec 29, 2014
David D: Needed a WP Pack... loved their warranty and gave their product a chance... glad I did... love the pack... amazing what you can fit into it.Dec 21, 2014
jonathan j: Works as advertised..look no further for the best mid-size moto backpack on earth.Dec 18, 2014
Nicholas M: Needed a waterproof backpack for traveling and commuting that was geared for motorcycling.Dec 12, 2014
Daniel C: Rock solid, waterproof design, and comfortable to wear as well. Took it on a long trip and it was perfect.Sep 23, 2014
Chris B: I needed a pack that was weatherproof and comfortable to wear on my bike. My other backpacks had too many loose straps, but they were hiking packs so they have an entirely different purpose. Since I ride early morning before sun rise, I like the big reflective strip on the bottom. I also like the idea of not having a buckle for the waist harness sitting low where it can scratch up the tank. I have high hopes for this pack and after reading several positive reviews, I am going for it.Sep 5, 2014
John C: Waterproof bag with some small pockets in addition to the big waterproof section.Jul 21, 2014
Erik S: waterproof and size! i use it snowmobilingJun 28, 2014
St Louis R: Had this over a year over daily use. Huge when I needed to pack a full wedding weekend (including formal clothing with suit and tools for long road trips), and cinches down for daily communitn with numerous laptops, tablets, etc. It fits great, is wearing like nails, and its hard to imagine a better pack at any price. That fact is rainproof has made it no concern with equipment carrying, and riding my R1 is actually easier, on long trips with the backpack on.Jun 18, 2014
Mikolaj M: I commute with my motorbike and need THE backpack that can secure my workstation from the waters of life that may fall at any point from the sky. I also hear its comfy as heck, and anything Kriega usually has killer reviews. Now that I graduated from college and have an actual engineering position, spending some money is not a problem considering this is THE backpack to get. The fact that it displaces strain on your shoulders to your sternum is also a plus. Anybody that rides with a backpak noesJun 1, 2014
Russell M: Waterproof, comfortable, good looking, quality construction.May 31, 2014
Sean C: For easy extra cargo capacity. So glad I got it. Terrific product.May 19, 2014

B R: my r25 got stolen. I miss it and figured i should go a little bit bigger with the best bag i have ever owned!Mar 3, 2014
Richard H: The size and waterproof capabilities. Kriega makes fantastic products and this comfy large pack fit the bill nicely.Jan 31, 2014
David R: I chose this because I am a commuter and have to ride in rain or shine and prefer a waterproof bag. I also expect high quality. Lastly, saddlebags are not a good fit for my '76 BMW /6Jan 27, 2014
Aleks K: I needed a top quality back pack for a long trip. It was an awesome purchase. Performed super. I also had great advice from your staff and the price was right! Good job!Jan 9, 2014
Kirstin L: It was on my husband's wish list! He has looked at many bags and this is the only one that fits his needs. Thank you for having this function on your website.Dec 18, 2013

A shopper asked:I am very interested in this pack. I would like to know if I can integrate my camelback system into it? Is there a hole for the hose. Is there any kind of hook or hanger for the bladder?Oct 16, 2012
Steven P:Actually these answers are true. Customers should know that the R30 does accomodate a hydration pack with a velcro hanger and has a hole for the hose to snake out of. The pack goes between the liner and the inside of the backpack so when it is closed up anything that's inside the liner should remain dry. The Kriega website has a video showing how the hydration pack goes in.Apr 30, 2014
RevZilla:The R30 does not have any way to accommodate a Hydration pack. The dry compartment has no hooks inside and there is no hole that the hose would be able to snake out of. You may be able to attach one to the outside of the bag, but this would require some handy work with your own straps/bungee cords. Also, both pockets on the outside of the bag would not be big enough to hold a standard 3L Camelbak either.Oct 17, 2012
Andrew E:My wife can answer this question best: "My husband and I both purchased an R30. While he's been very happy with his, I find the R30 so uncomfortable that I can no longer use it. This is actually something I've been meaning to contact the manufacturer about, to find out if other women have the same problem. I am 5'6.5", 125lbs. The bag fits my torso just fine, and it really is a wonderful backpack (features, build quality, waterproofing, street cred, ratio of carrying capacity to overall size, etc.). For me, as a woman, the issue is comfort across my chest. I have tried adjusting the straps in every direction they are capable of, tried wearing more layers and even some padding--everything short of hard armor on my chest. To be frank, I feel like this bag was not designed with breasts in mind (and at 32B I am completely average!). It might just be me, but unfortunately I cannot use this bag at all. I hope this helps. I don't mean to dissuade female riders, but if you can find someone else who has this bag, I strongly recommend borrowing theirs for a test ride FIRST."Sep 23, 2014
Tassy H:My boyfriend and I both have Kriegas. I am 5'7" and 120 and I have the R 25 which is still a little bigger than I'd like as I can't quite synch it as tight as I'd like even with all my gear on. It also rides a bit on my tail depending on how full it is and I don't prefer that either. GSXR600. I actually think I'd like the one smaller for daily riding for work stuff. My boyfriend is 6'4", 225 muscular build and he likes the fit of the R 30 but he's also massive compared to us. His backpack would swallow me up. His R 30 has a great capacity and he generally doesn't ever fill it and when I use mine (R 25) I usually put my computer, day planner, change of clothes, odds n ends and I'll hang my shoes from a carabiner off the top, though I could fit them inside also, and I still could expand the bag for more storage but never had to. Hope that helps. :)Sep 21, 2014
Chris M:I don't think you will have any problems. I'm only 5'7" and works great. I wear jacket most of time also. Very well made bag and the waterproof feature is great. You can make the bag as think or thin as you want with the straps. Sep 21, 2014
Karim George L:Quick answer is no. I have a Shoei GT-Air, size-large helmet, and tried to get it into the bag - even taking out the white waterproof interior... did not fit. Perhaps a smaller helmet would fit. Good luck in your bag search.Apr 18, 2014
A shopper asked:I am looking to purchase a waterproof backpack that I can use for school on weekdays and for traveling on the weekends (sometimes hundreds of miles on a ZX6R). My current backpack (not a riding pack) puts excessive stress on my clavicles/shoulders when riding with it loaded. The new pack would need to function both on and off the bike as I typically walk 3ish miles a day while on campus (also why saddlebags are not really useful due to excessive bulk). I need to be able to carry a 15.4" laptop, a couple of binders, a book or two, and various writing utensils. I am leaning toward a Kriega product because of the pedigree, but are there any better options?Mar 14, 2015
Chris B:I'm not a great judge of other products as this is the only dedicated bag I've tried. That being said I used to do the same thing with commuting to school with a ton of stuff in a backpack. I carry a 13inch laptop so I'd double check yours will fit though. The r30 definitely helps distribute the weight to your hips a lot better once set up correctly. Once it's set up you get almost no weight on your shoulders which is awesome. I've ridden a few 300mile days with just this bag and been surprisingly happy and not sore afterward. Mines been incredibly waterproof where it's supposed to be (the zippered pockets are resonably water resistant but I wouldn't leave anything valuable in there).
It is a little goofy wearing it just walking around casually unless you fasten at least one of the chest clips. I think it's a big enough increase in comfort while riding to deal with walking around. Again not terrible if you clip the lower buckle. Mar 15, 2015
Aleks K:Can't go wrong with the Kriega! I've had it for over a year. Very well made and waterproof. The buckle system works great and doesn't put stress on your shoulders. I had mine loaded for a 7 hour ride on a zx14 and I had no discomfort at all. I would say the only drawback to this pack is that you need to access everything from one end. It only fully opens at top. Although it does have many pockets too. In the end I highly recommend it.Mar 14, 2015
Juan G:I have the kriega R30, it is the perfect size for commuting to school, 15" laptop, couple textbooks, couple binders, lunch bag, all of this inside the main compartment. The two outside compartments are great for calculator, pens, Chargers, coffee mug and water bottle. I highly recommend the kriega R30.Apr 9, 2015
Darren B:The R30 fits my camelbak, osprey, and several other bladder configurations i own. There is a hydration pocket on the back panel (under the waterproof dry bag) with a velco type hanger. I have used 1 litre, 2 litre and 3 litre water bladders with the R30.Aug 1, 2014
Kevin B:If the hydrapak is a cambak type system then no. It has a dry bag inside and the velcro that holds it in place is at the top. Also the top is a rolled to secure it with no holes for a tube or anything.Jul 26, 2014
Michael T:One of the things I like best about the R30 is that it cinches down when not full and really feels like a much smaller pack. The harness is so good you wont even feel the weight when only partially packed and when you cinch down those 2 silver straps on each side to greatly reduce the bulk.
The only issue is when cinched down is that sometimes you need to loop the silver straps over themselves to keep the ends from flying around. It has clips to hold the straps but when tightened down they there is too much slack for the clips to hold.
Richard R:Hello Shaun, I have a R30 and like it very much, but it is not an every day pack for me. I will take it on weekends with a couple of changes of clothes. I also will visit a friends with beer and wine, etc. Think of it as a carry on for an airline trip. I love the bag, but I would look for a smaller one if I used it every day. The 30 will hold double what a backpack will hold, or 2-3 times depending on the backpack. richardMar 20, 2014
Santiago S:I've washed the liner in machine with regular detergent and hung dried with no problem what so ever. I guess you can't use brushes or drying machine, to prevent causing any damage. My washing machine is front loading. If that matters in any way.Jan 4, 2015
jaime m asked:I am debating on getting the Kriega R25 or R30. I currently live 3 miles from my college to attend class, gym, and the library. I also commute 40 miles back to my hometown and would like to pack the following…
-13” Macbook/charger (packed inside a laptop sleeve) -Running Shoes -Gym Shorts -Extra Shirt -Maybe a thin sweate -Full 1.5” Binde -Small planne -Small book -A couple snacks -Water Bottle -School Utensils such as pencils, pens, calculator etc. -Other small items
Phone/Wallet will be inside Kube Pocket. I don’t like carrying a fat overfilled backpack looking like Quasimodo, therefore will most likely be stacking my items like placing the binder/laptop on top of my shoes/ clothes and then tightening the straps.
What do you guys think would best suit me?Oct 22, 2014
I'm not familiar with the R25 Backpack, but definitely you can fit all that in the R30. I use the backpack for commuting and longer trips, I did a 3,000 mile trip with this backpack and was able to fit 4 full clothe changes, sweatshirt, tennis shoes, tablet, and accessories. The backpack is very comfortable, the straps distribute the load nicely and mostly in your chest, that helps specially in longer trips. Main pocket is waterproof so you can put electronics inside without worries, It has rained heavily on me while using it, and all remained dry. For smaller items such as school utensils y would recommend you to buy a separate smaller bag since it only has 3 pockets. You can always adjust the load straps so it doesn't look bulky when you are carrying fewer items.Oct 22, 2014
Chris M:I believe the 30 will be a good fit for you. You can carry as much or as little as you want in the backpack. The three straps on bag makes to where you can take up the excess space when not in use. It's also waterproof to protect your stuff. I use mine everyday carrying cloths, computer, personal stuff and food when necessary. I have been using it for two years. It has held up very well. It wears very well even when it is packed full. The strap system prevents it from hurting your shoulders. Oct 22, 2014
RevZilla:The Kriega R30 Backpack cannot easily be mounted as a tailbag with their mounting system. To the best of our knowledge, any tailbag that can be carried off the bike is going to be through the use of a shoulder strap. You may want to consider tank bags instead as we find more of those offer dual shoulder straps for carrying as a backpack.Oct 8, 2012
John B asked:I'm a little confused about the single dot. The upper part of the strap contains the 2 and 3 dots that can be adjusted but the lower part of the strap that contains the single dot doesn't seem to be adjustable...or is it? If the bottom strap with the single dot isn't adjustable, why is the single dot even there?Jun 12, 2014
Alexander M:It's all part of the same strap. The dots indicate how short/long you want to make the strap so you can set both sides to match. I'm smaller than most riders so I shortened the strap down to the single dot indicator, but if I were taller, I'd move it up to 2 dots or 3 dots. If you have the backpack, to make it go down to the single dot, you actually have to slide the buckle under the elastic band that extends across the strap. Hope that helps!Jun 13, 2014
Thanks for the reply. Initially, I didn't realize that the buckled could go past the elastic band as I thought that was stitched in place. I got it somewhere between the 1 and 2 dots and it feels good.
