Kriega R30 Backpack 4.7 5 40 40
Solid bag. I broke it in on a 500mile trip to see my parents. Nice bag, like the double buckles in front, very comfortable. Got some compliments from some people. I really like the 2 outer pockets nice place for stuff you need more often. Down side: expensive. Not sure if I should have gotten a cheaper bag and just carry a plastic bag to water proof when necessary... July 21, 2014
Pretty much the best You will forget you're wearing this backpack. Even with 50+ lbs, it is totally comfortable. Often I take the backpack off and suddenly realize, when I have it in one hand, how much weight I've been carrying around without noticing. It is pricy, especially after I added the optional Hydrapak reservoir, but it's worth it, especially if you need a waterproof bag. This is about the best backpack you could ever buy if you are a commuter; It can fit a load of stuff and the straps pull it down small when you're not carrying much. My only complaint was that I wish at least one set of side straps had buckles so I could hang a helmet or other stuff, but I solved that with a cheap carabiner. There aren't any small pockets for organizing stuff, which some may not like, but works fine for me because I tend to organize things into smaller containers before fitting them into the bag Tetris-style.

Initial tests look promising I haven't had a chance to use this on a trip yet but once I got it stuffed it full of random stuff and took it out on a ride. The weight is definitely off the shoulders and works as advertised and it's well built to suit motorcycle riders. June 23, 2014
excellent product The harness system is fantastic. With full load, the weight is balanced and there is no strain on your lower back. I was initially worried about ease of access to the main compartment since you can only get in from the top through the roll up system. Its certainly not as convenient as a zipper but ot turned out not to be a problem at all. I do not feel inconvenienced when accessing the bag. The 2 large water resistant zipper pouches on the front are excellent. I keep a folded rain suit in one, and I was able to fit a 40 ounce water bottle and a 12 ounce coffe thermos in the other one. Overall very high quality material that will last a long time. June 10, 2014
Great Pack, Worth the Price With the summer almost upon us, I was in the market for a backpack that would allow me to pack everything I need for a long weekend and would keep everything dry in the unpredictable New England weather. The Kriega R30 delivers. The R30 exudes quality in every aspect of its design, the look and feel of the pack is reassuring and inspires confidence in the equipment i am strapping to my back. Putting the R30 on for the first time, it took a couple of tries to get the tightening and loosening of the pack down, but once I had it figured out, it was quick and simple. It really is as easy as they make it look in the product review video on the website. With a reasonable load in the pack, i put it on and snugged it up. I was a little surprised with the feel of the weight on my back. I will attribute that to the awkward distribution of weight, but I could definitely feel the load on my back. After climbing on to my motorcycle, though, it was as if the weight disappeared. i was able to ride comfortably and it felt as if I was not even wearing anything on my back. You can certainly wear the R30 before and after your ride, but on the bike is where it shines. I am yet to experience a heavy rain while out on the road, but I am confident that the dry-bag design and material composition of the main compartment will keep the contents dry through conditions worse than I would want to ride in. If I find that my weekends require more stuff than I can fit into the R30, the ability to attach an additional waterproof pocket is a huge plus. Don't get me wrong, this is not bargain or an inexpensive backpack by any means, but when the overall package is considered, you are definitely getting what you pay for: A premium price for a premium package.

Roomy bag that stays put while riding!! Bought the bag for the weather resistant aspect and have been happy with it since day one. The only downfall I could find was having to much space and overloading it with weight. That being said, I have done multiple 200+ mile rides and not had any discomfort. If your looking to buy a pack this is the one hands down, fit, form, and function, this one has it all!! April 22, 2014
Awesome Theres no surprises here. It's quite large and awesome. For long distance nice and comfy and holds everything I need. April 20, 2014
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

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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 snowmobiling Jun 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 noes Jun 1, 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 /6 Jan 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

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

Go for the Kriega R15. It is what you need!

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

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

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

A shopper asked: Can you fit a hydrapak as you can with the R20,25 and 35? Jul 26, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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

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.

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
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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
Reply to Alexander Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
John B: 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. Jun 13, 2014
