Kriega R35 Backpack
Great bag. Very durable.
As advertised, a heavy duty capacious bag. Very waterproof. Decent amount of pockets. Has good cinch straps to take up slack in the bag. The zippered closure on the font is very cool though it has side pocket sippers right next to the main one that make it very easy to confuse the two zippers when you are zipping with helmet on. (zipping blind in other words) Its comfortable and looks good. My fav bag is the Ogio Mach 5 but when I need to haul more stuff, Kriega has it beat.

Love it but the price is a bit much.
I bought the Kriega R35 to carry everything from research material and books to groceries to clothes. It does so very well. It is a large bag to say the least.
The construction and material of the bag seem heavy duty, only time will tell on the durability, but after a weeks worth of use it seems to be handling everything well. My only complaint (aside from the price) is the front zipper which seems to stick everytime I put the thing on. I realy like this bag and have great hopes for long-term use.
Anyone worried about fit, particularly larger riders, need not worry, I wear a 56 jacket and the thing fits me fine with room to spare.
My biggest complaint is the price. It is a good bag, but for the price, one must think hard before buying it. Again, great bag but a large price point.

This bag has been everything I could have expected to get. It is incredibly durable. The first day I wore it I crashed and it didn't even have a scratch. Multiple rainy days I have worn it with my laptop and phone in it other than a little bit of dampness in the outer pockets it was mostly water free on the inside. If you can get over the fact that you have a big square harness on your chest it is actually quite comfortable and useful. You can keep stuff in the pouches on the chest harness like wallet and keys. The harness, however, does not fit smaller people well. Anyone skinny or short or both may be a little uncomfortable. I am 6'3" 160 so pretty skinny and I tighten the bag up to the tightest settings. I am comfortable at that position but it is the end of adjustment so be wary. My last complaint, but not really a big deal, is that there aren't a lot of pockets. There is a laptop pouch and a small pouch on the inside of the bag but no other pockets inside, just space which can be nice but also annoying cause stuff just gets jumbled up and small stuff falls to the bottom.
Overall totally worth the money, I am happy with my purchase and would recommend it to others.

Curved back makes this annoying to pack, but otherwise brilliant!
This bag is top-notch for the most part. The HUGE issue I have with this backpack is that the back curves so drastically when it's empty, it makes it nearly impossible to slide a laptop or tablet into the pocket prior to loading the rest of your gear.
That said, once this bag is on your back you seriously cannot even tell you're carrying anything. The way this bag distributes weight is simply amazing.
If the structure held a bit better while empty, making it easier to load common electronics while still retaining it's ergonomic superiority while riding/walking, this would a perfect bag.

I can fit everything in my pack.
Easy to use, very roomie. I carry boots a sweater, jeans, lunch, ipad, water bottle and you can fit more. It is very durable, premium build. The only complaint is the chest zip in area, it absolutely aggrevates me when i try to look down my helmet chin area hits the chest straps i can't see down at all ill post pictures. Other then the chest strap everything else is perfect.

High quality and very comfortable!
The quality of materials and construction combined with the flexibility to adjust fit makes this the best motorcycle backpack I have used. Though you could buy two or three backpacks for the price, they would only last a single season - this one will clearly last for many riding seasons.

Don't buy this bag...
Straps are ridiculous short. You have to be skinny and cannot even be too muscular. Only one large compartment. I am never buying this brand again.

Great for everything
Probably the best backpack you can get.
I can fit my laptop, gym clothes and just about anything else i need in it and i barely feel any of the weight while riding.
