Kriega R30 Backpack
The backpack is great. The backpack's construction is solid, and is easily the best of any backpack I've owned. The claps are easy to open and close while wearing gloves. The straps are easy to adjust in full gear with gloves. If you fit the backpack properly, you can avoid putting weight on your shoulders. The main compartment can store a water reservoir (sold separately), with a hole in the top to accommodate the tube. Though the water reservoir is stored in the main compartment, it is kept outside of the integrated dry bag to avoid damaging water-sensitive items. The dry bag is also removable, allowing for easy cleaning. Though I wish that the price were lower, the excellent features make it worth every penny.

Great overall but...
It does exactly what it is designed to to where it distributes the weight when carrying some hefty items. My only disappointment was when I tried to stuff my helmet in there and found out it wouldn't fit. I have my doubts about throwing a 12 pack in there too.
That being said, if my Kriega backpack caught on fire and exploded, I would buy another.

This bag does what the description claims
After a lot of sweating the price tag, I pulled the trigger. I commute 50 miles daily with 30 lbs of books and usually ride with a pack if exploring. Recently I got the chance to seriously put it to the test when I took a 600 mile round trip on my r6. The bag weighed in at exactly 22.6 lbs with food and clothing for 2 days on the road and at the end of the trip the only thing that needed the kinks worked out of it was my a**. There's a reason there is no "tour" in the title "sport bike". My only complaint is that the shoulder strap quick straps are sometimes hard to pull the slack out of. Otherwise I'm very pleased.

Fabrics are high quality.Well constructed.

Totally waterproof - Feels good on my back
I bought this because I wanted a totally waterproof backpack. I Ride every day and if it starts raining I want to be able to keep going and not worry about my backpack. Riding in the rain should mean you need to slowdown, not stop and re-dress and cover everything. This lets me do that. I appreciate that Kriega left all of the pockets as pockets only so that you can load it anyway you want, but I wish there were some smaller pockets inside the big outside pockets to keep stuff from moving around. I solved the problem by buying another Kriega Stash and Kriega tool kit. It works pretty good, but really I love the pockets that are in my smaller compartments in my Swiss-Army backpack. One really nice thing about the Kriega, is that it hugs you instead of hang on you. It feels like you have a small person hugging you from behind and so gives you a little warm-fuzzy when you put it on. I know all bikers like hugs, it's nice.

The Perfect Riding Bag
I purchased this bag for commuting and have found no flaws in it. The ease of use white lining is very helpful,the large opening to get over your riding jacket and adjust-ability is superb. I live in Washington State and it has handled any weather my region can dish out. A fantastic product that convinces me to purchase more from the kriega line.

Large, Water proof and VERY COMFORTABLE!
I just got back from my hour commute in the POURING rain here in the bay area. EVERYTHING in the bag is still dry. I wear cold weather gear coming to work, and pack it all in the bag for the ride home at the end of the day. I can fit cold weather over pants, leather jacket liner, extra glove, lunch Tupperware, 40oz metal water bottle, road side flat tire patch kit and a small 12v tire pump with room to spare. With all this in the bag, holding it in my hand is heavy, but once its on my back and I'm ridding home, I can honestly say i can barely notice it on my back. I would for sure buy this bag again!!
