Kriega R35 Backpack 4.5 5 18 18
Kriega R35 Rucksack First off I want to say that ever since I was introduced to Kriega gear I have purchased all of my riding bags from this company. They are great and will continue to purchase from them. That being said...the R35 Rucksack, the price is up there but overall it is a great pack for those that are looking for a nice pack to store 35 liters of gear. I use to ride with Camelbak back pack that stored your entire house and in comparison to the R35, the Camelbak BFM 51 had the capacity to store 51 liters but it was not made for riding and it became quite a bit uncomfortable because it wasn't designed for long rides. The Kriega pack is smaller in comparison but it does the trick and I do enjoy how all of the weight is distributed on the chest rather then having it sit on your shoulders or resting on your lower back. So for that I have to say good job. Here are my pros and cons. Pros: Comfortable, easy to adjust, good storage. Cons: Front zipper boxy reflective part...it is odd to carry on one shoulder, not flexible in any manner, a bit expensive. Recommendations: Find a better use for the front side pockets, rethink the front straps. A quadrilock system that you find on the R25 and R30 would've been a much better addition. Finally, if this pack were to carry a hydration system, the laptop sleeve would be rendered useless, make a stand alone pouch to separate the two. Overall, great pack, just a bit spoiled by the camelbak BFM 51 and how it has stand alone pouches i.e., hydration, laptop, and document sleeves. The R35 is very comfortable for around town or long commutes (I ride 126miles daily). I would highly recommend this pack. August 24, 2014
Amazing for commuting! I use the bag to commute to school and since there is no lockers I carry my gear with me. I am able to fit riding boots (Elsinore 1000), books, gloves in bag, strap jacket(leather) to the outside, and carry helmet. There is a lot of room in the bag and with it packed full of anything the curve in the back doesn't go away. The harness fits snug across the chest and is extremely comfortable. On top of that it looks amazing. Only downfall was the price. Overall would buy again if something happen to my Kriega. May 9, 2014
Pricey, but if you have the money it's worth it! I looked at different back packs for months and always liked the Kriega line up but always a lil nervous about the price. This past march I took some of my savings and bought the R35. I commute to college which is like a 40 minute drive each way. Even with all my books, it still is comfortable to wear and does not cause fatigue like my other packs. There is only one lil hitch, the side straps can only be adjusted so far, and I have a skinny waist, so If I'm not wearing my jacket, it's not as tight as I would like it to be. But other than that I love it! It's bullet proof, amazingly comfortable and engineered for the person who wants a riding backpack. May 5, 2014
Expensive, but a great traveling backpack You can fit so much stuff in here! You could probably fit enough clothes, etc. in here for a week long trip. I ended up using it for a long trip and it has been alright so far. As far as comfort, the way the bag is set up is perfect so that all the weight is where it should be. You can wear it all day and not be sore. As far as looks, it is a very rugged looking backpack. The front chest compartments look a little strange when you are not wearing a bike jacket, but that is my only complaint. I like the chest pockets for utility. March 24, 2014
Worth buying I am a commuting student that wanted a bag that could stand the wind. I used a previous backpack that lasted about a week before tearing in certain locations. This bag is essentially a void. When opening it seemed disheartening, but once you opened it up and started throwing stuff in a grin came to my face. The bag is huge, I can fit my riding jacket (with insulation layer), gloves, a few text books, wallet, keys, and some other minimal things into this bag. Not to mention its back portion where you can place items under the cargo-net like portion. The way the bag feels when its on you is great. When carrying a light load its barely noticeable and feels really secure. The chest pockets are awesome for small items like your phone. The adjustable straps allow the bag to conform to your body and feel comfortable at whatever speed you're traveling. I have not ridden with this in the rain yet, but from looking at the construction of the bag I think it will fair well. Also, one thing I do not like is the reflective aspects. It was claimed to be a pretty reflective bag, but by testing the bag did not seem very reflective. January 31, 2014
Great pack but a little pricey This was my first real riding pack and I'm satisfied. Don't expect an organizer, as the video says it's just a large open pack but it's great for carrying groceries or extra clothes. Have used it everyday for 3 months now and no rips or damage and all the buckles and zippers work fine. Only 2 minor complaints: It's a bit pricey for what is essentially just a large bag and it was NOT made with + sized people in mind. I'm 6'2 and 290lbs and with a heavy winter coat i have all the adjustment straps maxed out and it still fits quite tight around the kidneys and chest. Also if you ride in the super sport position the top of the pack may rub your helmet for some of the more aggressive bikes. Otherwise the pack is very comfortable and stable at speed and i can easily fit enough clothes and gear for a weekend trip to the mountains. Would recommend. December 29, 2013
Just got mine. Short and simple. I wasn't impressed when I pulled it out the box, looked like it was too small. I was wrong. I got to 2 pair of size 11 shoes in there, used a space bag to shrink one pair of pants and 4 long sleve shirts, stuffed 4 vneck t-shirts, one pair of cargo shirts, two pair of workout shorts and shirts. Plus socks. And I still have room to carry my 10inch tablet. Okay I am impressed. Still not sure if its worth $200, but its built for motorcycle riding so it and if its comfortable as advertised, then it will be. Just go it so I cant rate its durability, but I got a 7hour ride on my CBR coming up. We will see. November 16, 2013
Great bag, sizing can be an issue The bag itself is great. No bad stitches, everything lines up, and feels great. The issue is with fit. I have wide shoulders, like WIDE. My suit jacket size is a 54US. I can barely get this zipped in the front, with a Tshirt. I contacted BritKitts and asked them about the sizing of other packs in Kreiga's line and they said the R30 and others have a slightly different strap system, so they have a few more inches of adjustment. So, keep that in mind as you shop. September 11, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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
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

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.

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

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

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

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

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
