Kriega US-5 Drypack
Simple and easy to use
I got the US-5 to attach to my R-20 backpack. It was easy to install and looks alright on the backpack. I haven't tested the waterproof capability yet but I'm not really worried about that.

Very well made, top quality, though small
This is my first Revzilla purchase and my first Kriega purchase. Kriega seems to be top shelf stuff, very well made. This bag is no exception. It has very nicely thought out features and is clearly a well designed bag. I bought it to bolt on to the rear of my bike to carry tools and my flat tire kit, and for that use, it is great. The 5 bag is a bit small, though, so that's absolutely all that will fit in it. If you are looking for a waterproof bolt on fenderpack that can be removed (via straps) easily, but isn't too big, this is the bag for you. If you actually want to carry extra gear and access it with some regularity, you might want to consider a bigger bag, or a different brand. My only two gripes with this bag are: no instructions (but you can reference the video on Revzilla's site) and apparently extra straps are not available - extra straps would be nice because then the bag could be installed on multiple bikes - the straps are what actually bolt to the bike.

Handy addition for extra storage.
The US-5 is a handy item. Its a nice addition to other bags for a little extra storage or a small stand alone. I use it on my KTM690 as a 'tank' or tail bag to carry small items at hand.
Like any/all of the Kreiga line it's tough, well built and simple. I don't mean simple to be a criticism, but really a Pro item - it doesn't wast bulk or weight on unnecessary items. Rip-stop and water resistant materials are used for construction making the bag pretty bomb proof an water resistant. It does come with a water proof liner for the main cargo area allowing for 100% water proof storage.
- Simple no-nonsense layout.
- Tough water resistant materials
- Light weight
- Low bulk
- Easy addition to any larger back or pack from Kreiga
- The straps that ship with it aren't quite like others in the line. They are intended for the US-5 to be an addition to any of the larger bags or packs in the line. They are too short to be strapped to a seat or much of anything on their own. They do have a reinforced section with two grommets each that are intended for bolting the straps to a fender or tail. To use the bag strapped to a seat, or similarly larger circumference it can be done, but at additional cost to buy a set of compression straps and the female-female connector straps.
Summing it up:
If you don't already own Kreiga stuff, this might not be the place to start due to the strap config as noted above. Though if you're looking for a bolt-on fender/tail pack it is good as a stand-alone there.
If you do have Kreiga gear already this is a handy versatile item that can be repurposed as a stand-alone strap on bag with borrowed straps from a bigger US series bag and the female-female connectors
So it's getting a 5, but I'd really do a 4.5 if that was an option due to the straps lacking a stand alone capability except as a bolt-on pack
