Kriega R35 Backpack 4.5 5 27 27
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. November 10, 2015
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. July 28, 2015
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. April 30, 2015
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. April 29, 2015
WoW! This is The Ultimate and most Technical Backpack Ever! Okay first impression of this backpack is Wow! It is truly a heavy duty back pack and it will carry almost everything you want plus more. I use this as my commuter because It carries my large 8" steel toed work boots, 15" Laptop, Rain gear, mid layers, street clothes, and coveralls all in one pack! It also has the option to attach a 10 Liter Dry pack from Kreiga which gives you 33% more waterproof storage capability! The backpack may be consider to big to some but for a blue collar worker, it fits my daily needs! March 6, 2015
good bag The overall design of the pack is great. Its well made and very comfortable. Things I don't like are not enough compartments, small things get a little lost in the massive storage. And that front zipper, that thing is a joke, almost worth getting a different one. Using snaps is a better design then the zipper idea. January 12, 2015
the best backpack i have ever owned use the r35 to commute from school to home. fits all my books comfortably and with ease. i love being able to attach other kriega products to this backpack. December 29, 2014
Great in weather and comfortable over long distance Bought this ahead of a long weekend trip late in the season up to New England (800 miles round trip). Very comfortable throughout, definitely didn't appreciate before the benefits of a purpose designed/built motorcycle backpack. Finish is rugged and simple to adjust on the go. Not to mentioned all my gear stayed dry through 3+ hours riding through the rain. Very impressed! October 20, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
javier m: I carry sneakers, Sweater, Ipad, phone, keys, wallet, head phones, extra pair of jeans, a hat, and my lunch on a daily basis. This pack suites my need for space. Oct 23, 2015
Artur Volker C: go work and gym with stile and "civil" looking Sep 3, 2015
F U: Wanted a great bag for commuting and assorted traveling. Not the most comfortable backpack for walking around, but it is perfect in a sportbike riding position. You can fit 4 full days of travel stuff in this bag no problem. Aug 30, 2015
A R: Very strong better than a regular backpack Aug 30, 2015
Patrick S: Wanted something for travel both on and off the bike. Wound up being too big for me (volume, not fitment) Jul 1, 2015
Jamie O: It's well constructed and like the ease of putting it on. The two front zipper pockets are awesome, great for wallet,keys,earplugs,chapstick or whatever. Jun 28, 2015
LaGerald N: Already a Kriega convert (thanks Anthony) with an R20. I'm slowly progressing out of "noob" territory and want to start doing some longer trips across Cali. Like the thought of throwing a couple of days worth of gear in this thing and just disappearing. Bummed it doesn't have the same quad lock closures as the R20, but every review I've read worldwide (yep, I'm THAT guy) gives praise to the big-*ss zipper closure chest harness, so that's good enough for me. Kriega is the gold standard. Period. Mar 7, 2015
Chris K: Saddlebags are too expensive, so for me, this was an affordable alternative. Feb 5, 2015
Karl S: I need a bigger bag to carry stuff. Has great reviews and looks stunning. Jan 28, 2015
Richard F: online reviews Aug 1, 2014
Hector E: after numerous hours broke down in serval days searching in the computer for a good backpack that I could use while ridding my motorcycle, mountain bike, and or just for weekend trips this seems like the top of my choices. I can only hope it is what everyone seems to say it is. I really found no bad ratings or comments for this or any Kriega backpacks. Im just going with the I rather have it and not needed, than need it and not have it. (space wise). Jun 10, 2014
James R: After perusing countless product listings, articles, and reviews, Kriega seems to provide the best ROI. Do your homework and you'll come to the same conclusion. Sure, initial cost is a bit daunting; however, long-term peace-of-mind is priceless. Which Kriega model to purchase will depend on your needs. For me, I chose the R35 for its spaciousness and bleeding-edge design. While it lacks the waterproof feature of the R30, I'll purchase a separate 35L Waterproof Dry Bag to use inside the backpack. May 16, 2014
Hien T: I needed bigger storage for my jacket and boots. I figure I'd give the R35 a go to see if it fits my needs. Apr 16, 2014
Steven G: chosen for capacity and customer reviews Apr 6, 2014
Sammy A: I need a bag that will be able to hold a large load of items, and not hurt my back while on short or long rides. While searching for other options. This bag seemed to be the best for what i needed. Mar 2, 2014
Robert K: I wanted something that I could transport everything I needed for short rides, water resistant, and secure. Jan 31, 2014
Cedric S: I commute with electronics, and while the WP bag (R30) would have been better, this bag has a separate laptop pocket in addition to a more attractive and (to me) useful harness system. Having my wallet and ID right there along with my work ID is a plus. Sep 5, 2013
Stephen B: Excellent quality, good video review by Anthony. Aug 17, 2013
Michael C: Hoping this will hold about 5 days of clothes for vacation. In space bags of course. Aug 10, 2013
Zackery B asked: I am looking into a bag that will serve as a roomy school bag, in which I need to be able to carry a 17in laptop in a sleeve, various binders, a book or two, and a few misc smaller items. I also want it to feel secure while riding (which I am sure this Kriega R35 is). Simply put, will this bag be able to comfortably hold the items above and possibly more?

Thank you!

Glen M: I commuted with this backpack. You will have no trouble fitting the items you've listed. One of the pockets will fit a 17" laptop securely. The main compartment is expandable and will swallow up your binders plus much more. Jun 1, 2014

Darnetta J asked: This bag is the perfect size for me. My only problem is that it is not waterproof. I don't want to go down to the 30L because I'd be giving up 5L and I need all the space I can purchase in a backpack. My question: is there a way to waterproof the R35? is there a separate liner I can purchase? I'll be carrying books and occasionally electronics and would like everything to stay nice and dry. Any advice, ideas and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time.

Colt M: I've been riding with the pack for awhile now, rain or shine. The only way that water would penetrate your pack is if you endo'd into a pond. The air flow barrier that forms around you while riding doesn't allow the water to seep into the material. Red lights are not a problem either. If you are truly worried about a lap top or other electronic device the grocery bag is an inexpensive option depending on the frequency of rain in your area. I have taken the pack down the interstate in a torrential down pour and everything was perfectly dry.. except for my shoes Nov 6, 2013

Michael K: I believe Kirega makes dry bag inserts for this pack, but like everything else they make, they're pretty expensive. You might try searching for Exped Dry Bag UL or BS (come in either fold or corded version, various sizes and are relatively affordable). Other bags are out there too, just search around. That should take care of the waterproofing. Good hunting... Oct 24, 2013
Reply to Michael Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Terry R: I have had no problems with water penetrating the pack but have only ridden in twenty minute showers so far. The biggest issue I have with the pack is the design of the big square velcro pocket that joins the shoulder straps on the front side. The pocket is located to high and comes right up under my chin which is very annoying. I removed the big ugly pocket completely and installed a strap at a lower point. For the money that I paid for this backpack I should not have to make any modifications as such and would never buy another one of these online ever again. Aside from the changes I made, it has been a good pack with plenty of room inside. To bad for the silly pocket they use to attach the shoulder straps. Hopefully they have redesigned this major flaw.

KEVIN L asked: I just ordered the Kriega R25 bag. My question is on the Kriega R35 bag for 2014. Do you have any info on it? The only reason I did not order it was because of the big 'ole flap in front and the airflow blockage. Do you know if this has been removed redesigned for their new R35 redesign? Dec 2, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
James k: The big flap does block some air but even on hot days air does flow down into your chest. I ride a 996 with a double bubble and I still get ok airflow. If your in an upright position it will block more air. I keep my phone in the left pocket as well and still get ok airflow. I really like this bag. Once adjusted to your body it stays there. The only issue I had was the semi ridged back panel. It was about 1 inch to long when my solo seat is on. It has a higher rear hump and would make it hard to look up high. I just rolled the top back a bit and it was perfect. It takes a few rides to get the front and rear helmet clearances down but when you do your shoulders will love you. The weight disappears as this pack distributes it off your shoulders and does not shift around when leaning. It holds up well in a crash as well. An unfortunate lowside in the canyons with a nice back slide rear somersault at the end left me sitting up resting on the pack like I just decided to take a break. Very minor scuffing was the result. Not a single stitch popped. Oh fyi when off the bike. You can walk around with it unzipped but it's not an over one shoulder bag.The R35 is my go to bag. Dec 9, 2013
Reply to James Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
KEVIN L: James- thanks for the detailed response. I appreciate you doing a crash test to verify the bag construction ;) I ended up returning the R25 because it was too small for the stuff I need to transport regularly (even though I wanted to keep it.) I'm on a CBR1000R so my body position would be similar to yours. I called the manufacturer and they told me the same flap will be in place for 2014, although before me mentioning concerns they did acknowledge that the bag was designed with the UK use in mind and were aware of airflow concerns from riders in warmer climates (Los Angeles, etc.) Thanks for the feedback, especially on the back panel. Dec 12, 2013
Thomas W: Not sure if this will help as I have a 2013 R35 but I never noticed any airflow blockage or flapping. I use the backpack regularly and it fits great and holds extras like rain gear perfectly. Dec 9, 2013

James k: Well. Not much you can do if it was not made that way. In the military they still issue us duffle bags but toss in an equal sized waterproof liner will roll up top so you can make water resistant backpacks into proof packs. I have the r25 and can't recommend kriega quality enough. I'd have no problem pulling the trigger on the kriega R30/35 were I looking at rainy day riding. While pricey how often do you buy backpacks? I'll ride with mine till it falls off and buy another which after 30k miles doesn't look like I'll be shopping for another any time soon. Not a atich has popped and I use it every day to work and back and on long weekend rides. The strap system works! I regularly haul 5 2L bottles home and my neck and shoulders love Kriegas setup.

Sandy K: Hey rider! Sounds like you want the R30. It's their best fully waterproofed backpack. Keep in mind that if you only need a little waterproofing, you can get the US 20, 10 or 5. Those have great capacities and you can mount them on the tail seat part of your moto or on the tank (using the Kriega Tank Adapter).

I hope this has helped!

Eric K: I'd recommend the R30. The R35 isn't waterproof. The R30 is a bit of a pain to open quickly, but that's the price you pay for true waterproof. Excellent pack... I use mine every day. Jul 1, 2014

A S asked: Will this pack fit a jacket and a full face helmet with room to spare? Oct 2, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Sandy K: As for the jacket, a typical cool jacket will fit with no problem, but a riding jacket with all the fitted padding/protection may be a tight fit but possible. But trying to fit a helmet in there as well will probably not work at all. I just squeezing my small size Arai in there and it didn't work for me.

I definitely recommend the Kriega Helmet Skin if you plan to store the helmet safely in any backpack...plus it has a cool carry handle!

I hope that helps.

Scott L: Not likely unless you are wearing size small. I've can fit a 2xL helmet and a hoodie but definitely not anything with armor. I usually carry rain gear plus what would normally fit in a book bag (lunch, clothes, shoes, etc). Oct 2, 2014

Alberto Jose C asked: Does this backpack have issues with jacket/suits that have a speed hump? Jun 27, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Rob B: My jacket does not have a speed hump but the backpack itself is very adjustable, comfortable, and well made. There is also about an inch of cushion on the back that may help comform around the hump a little. I would recommend getting it and just trying it on with your jacket to see if you are comfortable with it on. If not, Revzilla is great about making it easy to return. It is a great backpack for riding. I bought a second Kriega for my wife to use on her bike as well. Jun 27, 2014
Reply to Rob Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Hector E: Sorry, my jacket does not have the speed hump so I could not say if the backpack would have issues, however, the backpack is adjustable to fit lower or higher on your back by way of the shoulder straps, so the backpack may be just fine. (Assumption). Jun 27, 2014

Jessie P: Not that I've noticed, I have a leather jacket with a D3O spine protector and a speed hump, no issues so far. The tightening system allows you to adjust the straps at 4 different points; so with a speed hump, the bag will just sit a little lower to allow for some extra clearance. Hopefully this helps, It's a great bag and worth the $$ Jun 27, 2014
