Kriega R25 Backpack

The Kriega R25 motorcycle backpack has a quick release QUADLOC harness, which is Kriega's own tried, tested and highly recommended system, unique to the rucksack industry. An innovative & extremely efficient load-carrying system designed for motorcycle riders. Unlike conventional harness systems the load is carried on the hips & chest, transferring the majority of the load away from the shoulders and thereby preventing the neck strain experienced with regular rucksacks. Ergonomically designed with no arm restriction for long distance comfort on a motorcycle.

Features:

  • Main compartment  - YKK oversize zip
  • Side access pocket with 4-point load compression
  • Internal magazine sleeve, which can accommodate a 14" laptop
  • Internal key-clip
  • SUPERSPACE: 5mm airspace fabric
  • Oversize YKK coil zips
  • Upgraded harness to enable a wider range of rider to get the ‘perfect Kriega fit’
  • Fully hydration compatible - reservoir relocated from outer pocket to main compartment
  • Optional Kriega 3 Liter Hydrapak + Tube available (sold separately)
  • Hydration tube routes out and over the shoulder through a covered duct located top, center of the main compartment
  • Reflective web loops on sides of pack to facilitate easier fastening of US-10 expansion pack
  • Schoeller DYNATECH with integrated 3M Scotchlite reflectivity
  • 1000D Dupont Cordura base & harness

Chose Kriega over the Velomacchi
I first got the Velomacchi 40L backpack and no matter how I repositioned the straps, it still felt like it was choking me. I sent it back and got the Kriega 25L. Much better fit and I like the way the buckles sit on my chest. It just doesn't have as much room, but 25L is a good size for me. Straps are much easier to work than the Velomacchi too.

Great backpack for commuting
I bought this backpack 6~7 years ago when living in England.
Used it every day in England for a couple of years, during rain, and sunshine.

The back pack is not waterproof but water resistant, this means your clothes after heavy rain might get wet.
It happened to me once, and since I packed my clothes rolled in a plastic bag so this did not happen again.

Very comfortable, and did not feel too much stress after touring England and France with it on my back.

A great addition to it is the Kriega Kube pocket. To my liking, I can only install it on the left strap, as I am right handed, easier to unzip this way.

But let's go back to the bag pack.

As everyday use for commuting it is great, you can pack a Mac Book Pro 15", with shoes, and changing clothes, remember, I am from Europe, and most people if not all are riding full gear.

Once with all this, unfortunately, there is not much room for anything else.

Also, I had an old version than the one one now sold, so I did not have holes for a water bladder, and buckles for side, and upper straps, also I did not have the dots to show how far you tightened or not.

Let's talk about the buckle to setup the straps, took a while to get use to how to use them, but once you have the hang of it, you can easily, and quickly adjust the straps depending on what you wear, in the summer, light jacket means you can tighten it to a closer fit, winter with 4 season jacket, then you have to loosen it, and whichever season, it fitted fine.

The only inconvenient, is in the last year I had it, the strap loosen over time, where as before it kept the fit.

Unfortunately, everything comes to an end, my back pack after being used every day to get my gear has now a big hole where the left strap connect to the bag.

I know Kriega has a 10 years warranty, but not sure if I can find my receipt as during my move to the US, I no longer have it.

So I might upgrade to the Kriega R30 instead.

Great pack, Great feel/comfort, Easy on the back
I looked at many sites and read countless reviews before choosing to order this bag. It arrived yesterday and I could not be happier. The bag is SOLID! Great sturdy construction. It lacks pockets, but I knew that and wanted a more open space design. The quad harness is great. Very clean snug comfortable fit. Fantastic on the bike but also comfortable just wearing off the bike. Lots of space. Highly recommend this backpack to anyone who hikes or rides.

I should have gotten one of these a long time ago
If you're commuting, or a quick trip to the grocery store, my Monster has zero room to put anything. Finding a tail pack that worked was near impossible. This backpack is something I should have gotten a long time ago. It's VERY comfortable, easy to put on and take off even with a protective leather jacket on.

The bag is well made, looks like it will take a punishment. There is a smaller pocket, and the larger storage area. There is also a pocket to put a back protector in if you choose. The undersize of the pack is a waffle like material that keeps the back from resting directly on your back, allowing air to circulate under the pack.

Drawbacks? At this price it should be waterproof. There is no waterproof cover provided. There is no padded sleeve for a laptop - although my 15" macbook pro fits perfectly. (Note that the lack of a laptop sleeve comes in handy when you need the space for clothes, shoes, etc. So it depends on how you're going to use it)

In Summary this is very comfortable, holds a fair amount of junk for commuting or a light weekend trip. It does not obstruct the riders ability to turn their head, or move their arms at all. It sits high enough on my back it does not come in contact with the rear seat on either of my bikes.

This is SO much easier than fiddling with cinching down a tail pack to carry your stuff in. Pull up, lock the bike, and walk into wherever you're going. I plan to use mine walking as well, it's that comfortable.

Dude....Get This Backpack!
I wasn't sure about buying a backpack made specifically for riding but my lord what a HUGE DIFFERENCE this thing makes! It's night and day I kid you not.

It's got lots of space to store things and has different pockets for stuff like cell phones, laptops and so on.

It also does an amazing job of centering the weight of the bag to the middle of your back, which makes riding for longer periods of time that much more enjoyable.

I highly recommend investing the almost 200 bucks on this bag. You won't be sorry that's for sure. Money well spent if you ask me.

Don’t think about it, buy it
If you have a motorcycle you should have this pack. This is the second one I’ve owned only because I foolishly sold my other one with the last bike I sold. You set up the fit one time and you’re done. You never have to adjust it again. And when it’s on, it stays put, no sliding around your back when cornering. It’s expensive because it’s worth it.

Very high quality; unique and comfortable harness
The Kriega R25 backpack is a very high-quality, sturdy construction with a unique harness system that is both secure and comfortable. There is a lot of adjustability so you can get a good fit no matter your size. Storage capacity is good (some reviews note that the storage in the very top of the main compartment is actually above the level of the zipper, and that's accurate, but I don't find it to be a problem at all). There is a pocket or sleeve in the main compartment for the optional back protector or water bag. I have used for a 15" notebook, which worked fine (it was tight). It is surprising they do not equip this bag with a sleeve just for notebook computers; that would be a welcome change, I suspect. The quality of seams and zippers is outstanding... hard to imagine ever having problems with this bag. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this bag. It's expensive, I think a bit too expensive, but it's indeed very high quality, and for me it's something I use nearly every day. So if you can afford it, and want a high-quality pack that will likely last you a lifetime, this is a strong candidate.

Great backpack that keeps close to your body,arms free, and keeps your bike clean by not having to add saddlebags.

How would this pack fit for a big guy? I am 5'10, 300 lbs. I wear a men's 52 regular suit coat, so needless to say, my Fox Creek Leather jacket is very large. I am wondering if this would still fit over that or would it be too snug? Any larger riders out there with experience?
A shopper on Aug 20, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The R25 is NOT for you. I'm slightly smaller in the chest and it's a snug fit for me. I can wear the R25 over all my gear, but breathing becomes optional.

If you go AGATT, All Gear All The Time, then don't get this pack.
Has anyone paired a US20 with the R25? Too big or bulky? Great fit?
A shopper on May 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am sorry I have not. This pack is really built well and has plenty of room awesome back pack you can't go wrong
Does this backpack have an external strap for a helmet? If not is there and accessory i can purchase with it so I can attach my helmet to it when im not using it?
A shopper on Aug 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not a dedicated one like the Velomacchi does. You could probably use one of the tie down buckles.
Will this hold a 15 in laptop?
A shopper on Nov 4, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The internal pocket along the back of the backpack is roughly 12 inches high and 10.5 inches wide. A 15 inch laptop should fit inside depending on how wide it is. It will definitely fit inside the main compartment of the R25 which is roughly 20.5 inches high, 11.8 inches wide, and 6.3 inches deep.
I have narrowed down my backpack shopping to two. The R20 and the R25. I am going to be using it for daily commuting to work. 50 miles each day. Carrying a rain suit, lunch, thermos, possibly a liner or liners from my Cortech riding jacket. Along with a few small items gloves, etc. I could possibly attach a US10 pack if needed. I think both of these allow that, But Prefer not to. Which of these would you reccommend for my use? Thanks Mark T from VT
Mark T on Jun 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hello Mark,

The R25 is probably the better choice as it gives you the room you want, when you need. 9/10 I am only carrying a laptop and accessories and after I have cinched down the straps, there is no bulkiness to the bag. Other times I have, like you, added winter gloves, liners, overnight stay clothing, etc. and have always been glad that I have the R25 vs. the R20. In short, the R25 is a more versatile choice without appearing or behaving bulky.

On a side note - the water resistance is okay. In heavy downpours the fabric will get damp inside and in rare instances, leak a bit. Also, the laptop pocket is just a fabric sleeve with no other protection towards the bottom.

All the best with your choice.
How well does this pack fit on a smaller frame? I am 5'7" and 38" chest. Will the pack adjust small enough to keep the pressure off my shoulders?
A shopper on Oct 18, 2012
BEST ANSWER: just to answer my own question, I bought the pack and it fits me fine. it is slightly loose when i dont have on any gear and am just wearing it around the house. When I have my leather jacket on, the pack fits perfect. I love this pack!
Will the compression buckles on this pack match up to the US series straps? I want to strap it on top of my US-30 for the longer road trips.
A shopper on Apr 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I don't own the US series, but it appears they use the same ITC Nexus buckles on all their products, so I think it would fit. I don't know if it would be an ideal solution though.
I'm a woman, 5'6" and 133 lbs. Do you think this backpack work for me?
Tonya P on Aug 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: YES! It is very comfortable. I too am 5'6 (a bit heavier) and it lays very nicely without pulling on my shoulders. I load it up, including with a camelback water bladder and do not even feel any pressure. I have used it last week on a 2100 mile trip, and also use it to commute to work and I love love love it. It also fits a laptop if I need to carry it. Let me know if you need more info.
Does the R25 come with the helmet carrying strap? If so, can anyone post a good pic. I'm planning on buying an R20 (R25 has more space than I need) and I'm looking for a way to carry my helmet. Preferably dangling off to the side.
A shopper on Aug 17, 2013
BEST ANSWER: As far as I know it does not have a helmet strap, however the way it's constructed I don't think it would be too difficult to mount it on one of the side buckles or attach a carrying bag to it. I normally just carry mine in my hand, but I'm a little paranoid. I dropped $650 on my Arai helmet. In terms of the buy, it's hands down the best motorcycle back I've ever owned. I've made several trips through the airport with 4 days clothes inside.. Literally just, backpack, helmet coming on the bike.
If using this backpack for a motorcycle road trip, roughly how many days storage would you have? Two, three days or just overnight?
A shopper on Aug 29, 2013
BEST ANSWER: How many days you could store really depends on "How and what you pack." The storage area of the back pack itself can expand out to about 10-12 inches by releasing the two horizontal straps out all the way.

I easily packed 2-3 days worth. In fact, I've used my Kriega US-10 for a 3 day trip (bare necessities only). I found a Youtube video for helpful tips on packing and when utilizing ziplock bags I was able to pack the R25 with much more.

I suggest light/non-bulky shoes i.e. something along the lines of a pair of Nike Free's.

This really is a great backpack. Not only is it light and made with superior materials, the reflective aspects add to your safety during night time riding.
