Kriega US-10 Drypack
Using this on my Yamaha FZ-09. I needed storage and this works great. Not to big. Looks good on bike.

Good solution for around-town storage on standard bike
Needed a compromise between the OEM tail bag and nothing - the Kriega US-10 is a great fit. As others have said, a bit of adjustment needed to get things aligned, but the build and durability appear to be top notch and with the flexible system Kriega has developed, you should never run out of options going forward! One down side is the bag MUST have something in it to keep shape and fully tied on, or it will slip out of the connectors. I found a bit of bubble wrap adds shape without weight, and if I need to fill it up completely, just toss the wrap and I'm good to go!

A Great extra storage pack for my Kriega R35 Backpack for those multi-day riding days!
I have this pack on my touring days, where I need the extra storage for rain gear, mid-layers, and clothes. Not only it provides extra storage, but it is also water proof and is back up with a 10 year warranty! I got to admit the U.K. got some great products and quality on par to american made, almost. :P

No b.s. utility bag
I got this bag to carry a toolkit, extra water and snacks for riding off pavement on a big bike. I ride there, drop all my luggage cases, and throw the above mentioned items into this bag and it's perfect. Can still put my butt all the way back when needed, carries all the essentials, is super fast to remove and put on and the straps that stay on the bike don't interfere with my topbox at all. The thing is built rock solid as well. The last bag I did this with in Death Valley had a hole in it after just one day of riding.

I bought the US-20 which I don't see on the website now. It definitely is well constructed but was overkill for me. The strap system is time consuming and requires frequent readjusting to make sure the metal clips don't done fall out out of the loops. I've gone back to using a backpack with cargo net for quick jaunts around town. Will still use for longer trips.

Better tool for the job.
For those who are looking for a versatile tail pack and considering the Kriega Dry Pack line up, the 10 litre is a much better choice for daily essentials carry all. The 20 litre pack offers more room for cold weather gear preparedness, and I find the smaller 10 litre more suitable for Summer/Spring climates.
The construction is Kriega's norm and of course durable like the rest of the line up.
My only disappointment with the 10 litre Dry Pack is the lack of a carry strap/handle when the pack is off the the bike.

Small commuter bag.
This small 10-liter bag is a good starter tail-bag to have on your motorcycle. You can go grocery shopping at the local store and pick up a quart of milk, plus two 20 oz bottles can fit beside it. There is a nice zipper on top to store your gloves in, or a map.
There is also a nice mesh underneath which you can use to store your proof of insurance, proof of ownership and more maps.
The buckles on a bike are superb. However you must remember to tighten the strap according to if the bag is empty of not. if the bag is empty, and the straps are loose, then the bag could wiggle free and fall off your motorcycle. This has never happened to me before with Kriega, but when at the end of your ride you see one of the four straps have come loose because you forgot to tighten it down, it leaves me a bit worried sometimes that it could one day. And as a precaution, I sometimes look back to see if it is still there. Never let me down yet though, and I'm sure if I remember to tighten the straps, it never will.
Another thing is that this bag is specifically designed for motorcycles with the rear removable passenger seat. If your bike is a... KLR650. then it could take a little more time to install the straps around your rear rack. Don't be discouraged however, because the universal straps are tough and can tie around almost everything.
Let it be known this bag is a bit small. In the long run I would recommend a 20-liter bag. If you need to go bigger than 20 liters, you can always click two 10's and a 20-liter together.

nice little bag
I got this to hold spare tubes and other things for use as a tail bag. Installation was easy enough - the directions were clear. I'm especially happy it can double as a tank bag. White liner is nice. Getting into and out of the bag is quick and easy. Looks good.
