Kriega US-30 Drypack
What I needed!
I ride suzuki boulevard s40 and I do grocery shopping with it a lot. Ever since I got this product, it's so much easier. Only little complain I have is that you can only put things from the side, and there is no option to load from the top (when it's rested on the bike). But overall this product is great. Super durable, packs so much, and water proof.

Very happy with my investment.
Installing: i have a Triumph Scrambler, and it took me like 10 mins to install it, so i could say that its very easy to install.
USE: man, i had a 7 day ride, going through mud, dirt, very heavy rain, even fell in a puddle, and all my stuff still dry!! that was a worry that i had...once i've got to were i was going and took all my stuff out and found out everything was DRY!!!, i was very happy and pleased with the performance of the bag.
Moving it aroung, i bought the 70 liters combo, impresive cargo capacity, i took a lot of stuff with me, and mounting and unmounting my bags from the bike was pretty easy.
So if your looking for soft luggage, i recomend strongly the Kriega's Bag's.

us-30 just right
Big enough to hold clothes etc for a weekend trip with space for whatever I might pick up along the way. I pack light but it's nice to know I can stack these. High quality bag.

We read the reviews. The product is everything we had hoped. We had been concerned about some comments that it might be bulky or lose, but these concerns we unfounded. We are planning to add to the system but have not decided which size bag is next.
We are very happy with the bag.

The bags are great! Just think twice before ordering to Canada.
My ride is a 2003 Ducati Monster S4 (Foggy)–a bike that I truly love and have owned since new. My commute to work is about a half hour, I ride for fun as much as time permits, and maybe once or twice per season I need to pack enough gear for a long weekend away. I didn't want a tank bag and hated the idea of backpacks. Likewise, I had little desire to attach anything permanent to my bike. I've struggled for years and mostly been frustrated in trying to find a pillion bag (or bags) that worked for me. The bag that I had been using was too small for a weekend, wasn't really waterproof, and attached with bungie cords which I never found adequate or safe. The Kriega US system has been FANTASTIC for me! I bought the US 70 (20+20+30). They do everything as described. Super easy to install. They remain secure. Are water proof (I never hosed 'em down, but I have ridden in some pretty nasty rain and everything remained dry). Other than one zipper getting "caught" one time–which was easy to fix by a little light tugging–they have worked flawlessly. The bags can be configured to meet my needs in so many ways. Short ride to a meeting: one US 20 as a messenger bag. Commute to work (I take a change of clothes, shoes, couple of meals, computer, paperwork): either one US 20 or one US 30 depending. I've gotten a weekend's worth of groceries into 50 litres (20 + 30) with lot's of room to spare. I'm only sorry that I bought these late in the season and missed the opportunity to travel with them earlier this past summer. I've actually not even used the second US 20...yet. Can't wait until I can hook up the three and hit the road! My only negative experience has nothing to do with the products or Revzilla. BTW the bags came to me within a couple of days. Much faster than I was expecting. However, I was dinged pretty good by customs in importing these to Canada. I paid close to a third more than if I had purchased them in the states. I could not find these bags locally and was so sick of my old setup so I thought that I would just deal with the duties although I did not expect them to be this steep. In retrospect I'm almost glad that I didn't know the amount of the extra fees as I might not have ordered them. Still, I love the product and can live with the extra cost. Unfortunately, this experience will definitely affect my purchasing in this way again.

Best tail bag hands down
This tail bag is incredibly well built and featured. I have not had to test the waterproof-ness yet, but I have no doubts that it will keep contents dry. The different installation options are so easy as to be ridiculous and are durable. I ride a Yamaha FZ-07 and the straps built in to the pillion seat are perfectly situated to use the metal hooks and then the clips make it so easy to take this bag on and off your bike. Once you strap it down it's definitely not going anywhere, but it is really nice to be able to take this off your bike and in to the office or wherever you're going.
The 30 liter capacity is a great size with more than enough room to swallow a large laptop, plus extra clothes for the gym and a rain suit for the motorcycle, just in case. That said, it's not so large that it looks ridiculous on the back of your sport bike.
I have no caveats in recommending this tail bag to anyone who needs one.

Durable, sturdy, great bag. Perfect for camping trips.
I had a friend who's had Kriega bags for years and loves them, so I bought the 30L drypack to ride out to a camping trip in Joshua Tree.
Install was super easy, it attaches to the passenger seat side bars on my Aprilia Shiver 750. I was worried the 30L might be too big for my bike, but packed to capacity it fit on the seat comfortably. It was also easy to pack down for a couple day trips where I only threw a few things in it.
The bag is really well made, totally waterproof. The aforementioned friend used these same bags on a sea kayaking trip we took. The weather was insane and our kayaks tipped half a dozen times - the Kriega bags stayed dry.
Well worth the investment. When I have the $$ I'll buy a 10 and 20L to go with it.

Just used this bad on a 4600 mile trip through all kinds of weather. The bag performed perfectly. It's an amazing bit of kit and I plan to add to it with two 20L bags.
