Kriega R30 Backpack 4.7 5 33 33
Spendy yes, but probably the best motorcycle specific pack. If you ask me, no backpack can be truly designed for a serious motorcycle rider unless it's waterproof. Now that being said, I am amazed that there are so few waterproof options out there! Fortunately, even though there aren't many options, this bag is so well made and designed, there doesn't have to be much other choice. The main compartment is 30L of open space that lets you do with what you will. The waterproof inner liner is white (intentional I'm sure) which allows you to see inside easier. The harness system works well and it was tested it on a long dual sport ride over some rough terrain with a lighter load. Heavier loads I don't expect to be an issue. The weight is spread across the chest nicely as designed. Another huge bonus which is not mentioned in the Revzilla description - at least as of now - is that the current bag is hydration bladder compatible. I highly recommend. No other pack has the same set of features. Large 30L capacity, hydration bladder compatible and fully waterproof. The only thing holding it back is the price. It isn't cheap, but then the best stuff rarely is. March 24, 2014
FANTASTIC MOTORCYCLE BAG! Fit, finish and function were beyond all my expectations! I was looking for a bag to carry a change of close, a pair of shoes, my lunch bag, and typically some other items that I need to bring with me to work, and this bag more than met all my needs! The two front pockets are perfect for phones, wallets, and similar items. I was using a Chrome messenger bag before I got the Kriega, and although it is a great bag this bag is superior in every way! Fits securely, very comfortable, and although it is a bit on the pricey side it is worth every penny. I am confident that this bag will hold up for many years to come as the quality and workmanship is excellent. I recommend this bag to anyone who rides and needs to bring various items with them for whatever reason! March 24, 2014
Bomb proof backpack As a year round commuter with no bags on the bike, waterproof storage for electronics is critical. I usually carry a 15" laptop with plenty of room left over for an extra layer, shell, etc. Pack is very high quality, waterproof, comfortable to wear. Not everyone will like the dry bag closure or the price, but this is indispensable in the rain and snow. March 10, 2014
Nice but a bit pricey I'm using this to go snowmobiling in northern Maine as my nytro doesn't have any space for cargo. I wanted a durable waterproof bag that I can cram a lot of things into. The pull rings work very well to tighten the bag to you to fit snug and the straps give more than ample room to fit your arm through even with a heavy or bulky coat on. The weight carries incredible well on ur torso not shoulders. It does not tire you at all. It has one very large compartment so if your looking for lots of pockets it's not for you but if you don't care about that it's perfect to fit a lot of everything into it. I even put a spare belt in my bag with clothes ect. I would consider this for dirtbiking or enduro riding as well. January 20, 2014
This pack Rocks, its a get'er done gear , keeping everything dry ! This pack, is comfortable, and will keep your things dry and safe( I carry a I Pad and ride every day to work) It has two pockets for small stuff. And the big compartment will hold alot for your trips. I carry it with me every day to work for my important stuff . I think the only thing , I would change is put a tuff rubber bottom on it .

Best backpack ever I waited a year after wanting this bag to buy it. Shouldve got it the day I saw it since it is amazing!! A tad expensive, but it will last for ever. Worth every cent November 27, 2013
Very technical pack... almost perfect for my needs This backpack is extremely high quality. I've owned and ridden with packs ranging from custom made messenger bags to tacti-cool bags like Camelbak and Spec Ops Brand. This performs far better on the bike than anything I've used. Quality -wise it is made as nicely or nicer than any equivalently priced bag. It's clearly made by riders since they get the little touches right... e.g. cinch straps have keepers built in, the retroreflective type is extremely high quality and in the right spot, etc. I debated for a good long while about this bag versus the R25 and am glad I went for this. I am a search and rescue helicopter pilot and will often commute to work with this bag, and leave it hanging in the back of the helo. Sometimes when we are doing a rescue over the water it can get wet in the back, so having a dry bag is pretty nice. The plastic part is removable too, if you want to clean the interior easily. Nice touch. I also love the roll top style. It's nice to be able to just stuff and go... no thinking about how to organize gear. If you really need something fast, the outside pockets are pretty big. On the bike performance is superlative. No shoulder strain, no bag sway. Enough room to fit clothes for a few days plus lots of gadgets. One hint- I picked up a Maxpedition organizer and use it in the outside pocket. It's great for organizing the little stuff... keys, mini flashlight, earplugs, gum, etc. Some negatives- the dot system on the shoulder straps is really easy to use, but it seems like they cheaped out by not using the same aluminum ring cinch system as they did on the waist. This is not the right pack for smaller riders (specifically smaller riders who aren't wearing a bulky jacket). I'm 5-11/155 lbs and find it JUST snug enough on the tightest dot. Also this isn't a great pack for wearing off the bike. If you don't fasten up the chest straps and hip straps it's going to be sagging and strain your shoulders. Wearing over one shoulder is not particularly comfortable. Just something to be aware of. All in all I would definitely buy the pack again. It's very expensive for a backpack, but the quality justifies the price. I wish they would have included a shoulder cinch system like the R25 so it could be adjusted on the fly, but it's pretty good as is. It's pretty hard to find this pack in US stores, so I took a chance on this and am glad I did. November 25, 2013
Versatile, durable, practical, great ergonomics I have admit I thought this backpack was a little gimmicky and didn't have my expectations set too high. However, I can now say that after one season with this pack it is has exceeded my expectations and then some. On my ride to work, I can pack my gym clothes, lunch bag, suit/shirt in a trifold garment sleeve, and dress shoes with no problem. For those days when I'm riding over to Wisconsin to pick up a six pack of Spotted Cow, the back can be cinched up to accommodate to smaller load. As for the quad lock system (this is the part I thought was going to be gimmicky), I have to say it is a very well thought out and makes wearing a backpack on a bike a non issue. No weird pinch points or fatigue in my shoulders or back. I actually wore the pack empty and went to the grocery store once. On my way there, I was on the highway doing about 70 mph and panicked for a second because I couldn't feel the pack on me and thought I left it at home! The bag is expensive but the build quality is on par with other high end packs that I've owned for hiking and they cost as much and sometimes more. November 18, 2013

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

Shaun B asked: R30 vs R25

How much more trouble is the R30 to live with every day instead of the R25?

Especially if the R30 isn't going to fully loaded every day and will only take a Macbook Pro 15-inch with a few extras like glasses, wallet and maybe a warm pullover.

My perception is that the R30 is much bulkier although the dimensions listed don't seem to suggest much difference, but more so it seems like a lot more drama to stuff in and out of it.

Not too fussed about the waterproofing as I believe the R25 will cater for our not so heavy winters down in South Africa.

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.

I would *highly* recommend the R30.

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. richard Mar 20, 2014

Shaun B: Thanks Richard.

That answers my question perfectly and so an R25 it shall be.

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
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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

A shopper asked: Is there any way to mount this as a tail bag? I would like to carry this off the bike with me but I do not like the one strap of the US-30 tank bag. Oct 7, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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
Reply to RevZilla Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
palmpilote: No direct way to mount it as a tail bag.
You need some net or straps but it is longer than US-30 and not designed for tail bag.

That came right from the description, bottom line.

I believe it can. I have taken larger bags as carry on
