Kriega US-5 Drypack
This pack is the perfect size for the rear fender on my Husky FE501S
As I began looking for a pack, the most important aspect was it had to be "waterproof," and fit on the back fender of a Husky FE501S. Mission accomplished !!

Kriega US5 Dry Bag
On a BMW S1000RR fits the rear seat nicely (about the length and width of the rear seat in a square shape) it attaches perfectly with the built in S1000RR luggage loops under the rear seat. Waterproof, comes with all parts and accessories necessary for any bike fitment (drilled attachment or via loops or straps).
My minimalist setup; I pack a rain/sun cover + standard hex key set + metric hex key set + fix-a-flat mini co2 and puncture repair can + extra room for more.
My long distance setup; everything in the minimalist setup plus the following; torx key set + h7 replacement bulb (in packaging) + wedge bulb + Gerber multi-tool + some left over space (I could try to cram more in there some long flat wrenches maybe)
Pretty much everything I need. Expands to my needs or compresses and compacts when I don't have a lot pack.

Great quality, but misleading sizing
The system takes a bit of thought while doing the first install, but it is simple and ingenious. Quality is very high, everything is thought through. The mix and match with bigger and smaller size bags for longer trips is very cool for future upgrades. $65 to get started seemed like a great deal.
All that said I was bummed out at the sizing. I figured a 5 liter size would let me get upwards of 1 Gal (as in container), or close to 5 quarts (1 liter = 1.06 quarts). My hopes were for a tightly rolled long sleeve under shirt, some of my basic flat tire tools, my locking cable, some food and drink and extra gloves. I can fit all of that into a cut-up gallon milk container, which I actually tried before ordering. In reality I can only shove a pair of gloves into this bag, my locking cable, a small water bottle and a couple of power bars - this thing is really tiny.
The 10 and 20 liter versions were sold out here at Revzilla at install time (both are available again now), so I decided to keep the 5 liter instead of sending it back since it's better then nothing - but only barely.

GREAT Little Drysack...
I purchased the US-5 at the same time as the Kriega 30 for a week long trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains and couldn't be happier. The US-5 has a SOLID construction and keeps gear dry as can be after riding through 2 DOWNPOURS for hours. Easily isnstalled and the straps work on all 3 bags. GREAT purchase for getting around on short trips.

Kriega top notch
I also have the 10, 20, and 30 and like those this is pretty much the perfect bag for its size. Only wish all bags had some kind of shoulder strap / handle (5 and 10 don't)

Useful, Possibly Overkill on Durability
This is great for carrying small and quick access items on the bike alone, or attached to larger luggage. Not sure I needed to spend the extra money for something as durable as this for what I put in it.

Just buy it
I used the US-5 along with a US-20 and two US-10's on a 3 day 1000 mile round trip from Ohio to NC on a Triumph Street Triple. I had plenty of room for my items and could configure all of the packs in several ways. I encountered rain along the trip and the dry packs kept everything dry. Highly recommended product. Just get it.
