Kriega UScombo40 Drypack System

The Kriega UScombo40 is a 40-liter capacity (x1 US-20 Drypack & x2 US-10 Drypacks) 100% waterproof, modular tail pack system. Unique design solution secures the 'base' US-20 bag directly to the motorcycle sub-frame beneath the seat using included webbing buckle loops and Alloy Hook Straps. The 2 x US-10 stack securely on either side of the US-20, using two further included sets of Alloy Hook Straps. The US-20 also comes equipped with removable shoulder and waist straps, so it can be carried courier style, on or off the bike. The US-10 and US-2j0 can be used individually, or once connected together they can be removed as one single luggage 'block'. The US-10 can also be used as an expansion pack for any Kriega motorcycle backpack. And equally, it and the US-20 can also be used as tank bags, with the addition of an optional US Tank adaptor.

Base anti-slip mesh also doubles as a pocket to store the shoulder and waist straps when the US-20 is attached to the bike. The shoulder strap connects to the large D-rings at each end of the pack and the waist strap connects to 2 tucked-away buckles at the corners of the mesh pocket (US-20).

The Kriega UScombo40 motorcycle luggage solution is designed to fit most race-rep and regular style seat pads (all fitting straps included). The Drypack(s) are easily attached / removed via the included webbing loops / Alloy Hook Straps. No extra bungees or rain covers are required. 1 x US-10 can attach to the top of the US-20, or 2 x US-10 can attach to the sides of the US-20. To fit in UScombo40 configuration: fit the US-20 'base' bag to the bike and pack out, then insert US-10 Alloy Hooks in the dedicated webbing loops on the upper and lower surfaces of either side of the 'base' US-20 bag and cinch down secures. Secure loose strap ends with supplied Strap Keepers. Once connected the three packs can be removed from the bike as one luggage 'block'.

Kriega US packs can also be used effectively on motorcycle racks or metal pannier tops by attaching 1 x set of the supplied webbing buckle loops to the item in question and following the same procedure as fitting to a motorcycle.

Kriega US tail packs can be removed from the motorcycle by using the quick-release clips on the top, or by slackening the straps and unhooking. When carrying off the motorcycle, the Alloy Hooks can be secured in webbing loops on the base of the bag and the straps pulled tight, to prevent them swinging around. Alternatively, the entire straps can be unclipped and stored in the mesh pocket.

Great Versatile Tailbags
I've owned this set for 3 years now. I have the US20 bag on the bike almost every ride - whether its to carry my lunch to work, or bring home purchases, etc. I've used the full US40 setup for long weekends. The bags are definitely waterproof and stable at very high speeds, no doubts there.The bags work great and are very versatile, and I would recommend to anyone interested in avoiding full on side bags, especially since it can be moved between bikes. The only downsides are caused by the great performance/flexibility - it takes a minute to tighten down all the straps each time you put it on, and with the exception of the external zippered section (also waterproof from my experience) the contents are not easy to access with it on the bike since the opening is rolled like a dry-pack for waterproofing.

Excellent bags that will go the distance
I just used this bag set, plus an additional 30L bag mounted to my FZ-07 on a 2 week, 2800 mile trip from Austin TX to Salt Lake City UT and back. In the 30L bag I carried a 2P Marmot Tungsten Tent, A Big Agnes QCore inflatable pad and a Marmot Meteor down sleeping bag. The tent poles fit just barely and I had to use an included strap extension to get the buckle to reach. In the 20L bag I carried a pair of hiking boots and a fuel bottle. In one of the 10L bags I carried my Primus camp stove (similar to jet boil), camp meals and my rain gear. In the other 10L bag I carried a pair of town shoes and clean clothes for 3 days. The 10L bags were stuffed completely full. The 20L was relatively empty, and the 30L was a bit less than completely full.

The build quality on these bags is fantastic, the material is very high quality and the stitching is solid. There were a few times when I was concerned the strap tension was putting strain on the stitching but on close inspection no strain was evident on the threads.

If I had any complaint its that it takes a long time to attach the bags to the bike when doing the full 4 bag setup. While the strap system is simple and straightforward to use, the sheer number of straps (4 for each bag for a total of 16) that must be properly attached, tensioned and threaded through the keepers meant the morning install took a bit longer than I'd like.

There is one suggestion that I would make to Kriega, and that is to use a different color of strap loop on the bottoms of the bags (the loops meant to be used to attach the bags together). There were a few instances where I accidentally anchored the strap to the bag itself, rather than to the loop attached to the bike. If you have to take off one or more bags to fix the problem then re-mount the outer bags the time to install goes up significantly. This could be really easily prevented just by using a different color of webbing loop on those mounting points.

The rest of this review is specific to the FZ-07.

Because of the design of the passenger seat and the subframe, its basically impossible to use the anchor webbing straps included with the bags. Yamaha had a bit of foresight here and included a set of anchor loops into the seat itself. I found these anchor loops to be sufficient for using the 20L or 30L bag solo, or the 20L with the 2x 10L bags. However, using the 30L with the 20L stacked on top and the 2x10L bags on the side was too much for the seat straps alone. No matter how much tension I put on the straps the load was a bit wobbly. To solve this I ran a Kriega Cam Strap under the seat and around the subframe, then over the 30L base bag, and cranked it down. With the single cam strap and the 4 anchor straps providing a secure mount for the base, the rest of the load could be carried without any wiggle or give.

I mentioned above that the 30L bag with my larger camping supplies was not quite full. This is mainly because if I had filled it all the way to capacity it would have been encroaching on my available seat room, owing to the position on which the bags mounted to the bike.

super high quality product, easy to use, and very adaptable.
I've been around bags a lot. In fact, I've spent the last 10yrs focused on bicycles, and in that vein, a lot of touring, including self supported solo off road touring, and in that method, the preferred approach is in frame bags, as compared to panniers. Typically frame bags are a custom deal. when it comes to custom bags, of course you go thru a progression, and learn exactly what you want, how to pack, and what the entire platform is capable of. i.e. i rode from Banff to Butte in 7 days, all in the dirt, along the divide.

so when it came time to fit a set of bags to my newly acquired '96 Ducati 900SS SP, of course I had a good idea how to pack, and I was only hopeful to find something of decent quality, and versatility. I ordered a Kriega US Combo 40, figuring that 40L was going to be way more than enough space for a 4 day jaunt from NorCal to SoCal. When the bags arrived I was VERY IMPRESSED. Kriega is top notch. I'm so happy with these bags.

Setting up the straps was super easy, but yes, i am a stickler for details, so i made sure things were attached in their optimum positions, and that the whole system was easy to take off an on, including stowing away the frame straps when I'm here at home and using the bike for mostly commuting duties where I typically do not need a bag of any sort.

my trip consisted of a jaunt down HWY1 thru big sur, some freeway on 101, a run along Mulholland, classic LA traffic, some rain as i was returning home, which had me hunkered down in Cambria for a day or two.

hotel bags:
when it comes to packing and using compression bags, typically you throw everything into the bag, cinch it down, and get on your way. this means, when you are in camp, or in this case, in a hotel, you typically strew all your stuff out along a tarp, and work from there. somewhat like a yard sale.
however, with the Kriega bags, I was happy to simply move things like my hygiene bag (clear zip lock type) to one of the outer accessory zip pockets, which allowed easy access.
things like electronics, phone charger cable, usb adaptor, etc... I simply used one of the accessory pockets on a 10L bag for "electronics"

over all I'd say Kriega has hit it out of the park with this product.

outstanding.

and... it looks good on the bike.

Revolutionized My Riding
Claiming that the Kriega US40 revolutionized my riding is a strong statement, but the pack system did just that. Not only do they look utilitarian-cool on either my Bonneville or Daytona, they hold a lot of stuff securely, be it on a cafe racer with the tail chopped or a sport bike beating up the twisties. Plus, they really are waterproof.

After suffering through other luggage with rain covers that kept only some rain out, I no longer fear getting to my destination and needing to take a hair dryer to half my clothes. I also now feel free to travel for work on my bike, knowing that if it rains between NYC and DC, my computer will stay dry. (And once at my destination, using the included shoulder strap, the 20 litre bag becomes a hard core way to carry my laptop around.)

One taken off the bike, the frame-mounted straps are nearly invisible.

Great product, works as advertised
Just returned from a 2400-mile, 4-day ride (Boston-KY-NC-TN-VA-Boston), packed the US20 with food and the US10's with extra clothing. Spent a little time getting the straps set, but after that it was easy-on / easy-off; secure and gave me something to lean against on those 10+ hour riding days. Love it.

Great Quality Luggage
I purchased the Kriega U.S. Combo 40 for an upcoming 2000 mile ride so I have not actually toured with the bags. However, I have attached the bags to the back of my 2014 Aprilia Tuono and have used them for commutes and for short day rides in order to get familiar with and more efficient with mounting, dismounting and working with the bags. Thus far, I can say the bags are top quality, durable and with a 10 year guarantee, should not need replacing for a long time.

Very robust bike bags with an incredible attention to detail in workmanship
Brought these for my second camping trip and they accommodated all my clothing and rain gear. These bags fit well to the bike and are modularized with two 10L bags attaching to center 20L. Every detail and feature were well thought out in their design and I am very impressed with them. These bags are well worth the investment!

Great bags, Love the modular design
Been riding with the 40 combo set for about two weeks now. I am currently working my way through graduate school and commute most days on my motorcycle. I'm often out all day and the Kriega 40 system has more than enough space for me to carry my laptop, books, a set of gym clothes and shoes as well as a change of clothes.

For reference for size, the US 10 bag is large enough to stow my gym stuff (a pair of shoes, shorts a shirt, small towel, sandals and a small toiletries bag)

The US 20 easily stores my laptop, a few textbooks as well as a full set of clothes (jeans, shirt, sweater and blazer) with some room to spare.

Being able to easily detach the bags and use them like a duffle bag is extremely handy. Also, I love the modular design which makes me want to eventually build up a collection of Kriega bags to tailor to my needs for daily use to weekend trips.

I haven't had them out in the rain yet, but I would be fairly confident in their waterproofing. They use the same design as kayaking dry bags, a roll down opening instead of 'waterproof' zippers, which are pretty much waterproof up to full submersion, and I believe I should have bigger concerns should I find my Kriega bags in such a situation. I also can't report on long term durability, but they appear to be very well built and quite sturdy.

The installation was fairly painless, had to do a little bit of clever work with some needle nose pliers to get the mounting straps through some tight spaces under my seat. I could see the process being much easier or more difficult depending on the accessibility of the subframe of your motorcycle.

The good:
- Modular design allows for customizing your set up for what you need. Easy and quick to change around.
- Excellent waterproof design (roll down openings, no use of 'waterproof' zippers)
- Once the mounting straps are installed, removal and securing the bags is quick and easy. Shoulder strap makes them convenient for carrying about.

The bad:
- Like most good motorcycle gear, a little pricier than I would like them to be but definitely worth the investment.

Overall:
Definitely a great set of bags for mounting on the rear seat. The modular design is great and I will probably be getting additional larger bags for week long trips. The 40 system is a great starting point, and in combination with saddle bags, they definitely provide enough storage for weekend trips. Would definitely recommend them!

Note: Just previewed the review... says I still ride a rebel. Not the case, been on the Kawasaki Versys for a while now...

It only took 20 minutes to install the straps. Bags fit my Ducati sport 1000 extremely well and the modular system adapts to wide variety of uses (from longer trips to daily commute).

Hi, i am picking up my kawasaki ninja 300 this week, and i wonder if this can be mounted under the back seat? I live in norway so i need to know if this is going to work before i order.
A shopper on Jul 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes the it can be mounted under the back seat by using the 4 straps provided to make 2 longer straps. Then by laying the strap out and placing you pillion seat on top with the 4 loops hanging out.
