Product Details

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
  • 420D nylon ripstop - lightweight yet extremely strong
  • CNC 6061-T6 alloy buckles
  • Expanding outer pocket
  • 10 year guarantee
  • 25-liter capacity

Awesome backpack at a heavy price.
I don't own a car, so I ride every day and a quality backpack is essential. I've been on the fence over this and the R30 for almost a year now. I finally decided on the R25 and while it is an awesome backpack, it is not perfect.

The Good:
This is by far the most comfortable backpack I've worn, for motorcycling or otherwise. The quadlock system is absolutely amazing and I can't imagine wearing a backpack without it now. There is absolutely no stress on my back or shoulders. It's also very easy to adjust and snap in and out of.

This thing looks durable, and I can imagine it will take a lot of abuse. Every piece is well made and heavy duty. The different materials used are top notch.

I appreciate that they didn't fill this thing with pockets, it's much easier to pack. There is one small zipper pocket on the inside of the main compartment that is see-through and is perfect for smaller items.

The Bad:
I'm beginning to think this pack is definitely over priced. Yes there are a few premium materials here and there, but overall this thing looks pretty basic. I'd expect a little bit better finish for something at this price point.

It is definitely not water proof (although it doesn't claim to be) but come on, at nearly $200 it SHOULD be waterproof. It's hardly even water resistant as claimed in the video. Not long ago I was caught in a light rain for maybe 10 miles and the inside of the bottom of my R25 was soaking wet. My other $30 backpack is completely water proof at a fraction of the cost of this thing. I find it funny that a British company (where it rains constantly) won't make every backpack they produce waterproof. Now I really wish I could afford the R30, but I feel like I'd only be paying for waterproofing and a little more space.

Long story short, this really is an amazing backpack which is sooo close to perfect, but if you're looking for waterproof, or even water resistant, look elsewhere. Start saving your pennies because the R30 will break the bank.

amazing difference from a non-motorcycle backpack
Revzilla review basically tells you all you need to know about this backpack as far as functionality and how it's best used. It is essentially a "packing" back-pack - open space, no dividers.

The exceptions are a small front-zip pocket for things like keys, wallet, etc... it's also open space. And the small divider sleeve for a laptop (with the warning that it is not designed with PROTECTIVE design for the laptop).

The things I can help with are with the same questions i had even after watching the video. Exactly what size is a 25litre.. vs a 32 or 35 litre,? is the 15 litre enough? So here is my "in english" sizing chart for you..

25 litre is your "standard" school backpack size. Like any book bag you'd use for school. Therefore the 15litre is more like a small backpack that you might see as a purse replacement type. 35+ are going to be the bigger backpacks that you might see from a hiker/camper that is carrying a weekend's worth of stuff on his back.

The other thing that you can't imagine or understand from the video is how much a difference the "distributed weight" design of this pack offers. So let me describe that here.

While you are riding... although you can tell there is a backpack on you (due to the straps, etc.), you feel ZERO WEIGHT while riding.. as if you are carrying nothing!!! It's AMAZING!!! And that's with a laptop and a change of clothes etc all packed into my pack - including id badge, wallet, etc. No matter how much i've packed into this bag - I still have never felt any weight or anything on me while actually riding. It's amazing!

My big dilemma when i bought this back was - should i get a backpack or a tail bag? For a long time I was going to get a tail bag because i liked riding without a pack due to the weight. But now I am REAL GLAD i got the backpack now that i know i won't feel any weight anyway! Because the backpack is a bit more versatile - i can use it when i'm not riding perfectly fine), and it has a specific sleeve to hold a laptop (although not protectively).

So this is really the best of both worlds between the tail bag (which doesn't have a laptop holder) vs the backpack.

Hope this helps.

great bag, very convenient
I couldn't decide between R20 and R25. I ordered both the backpacks. I have decided to keep the R25. I also ordered the small Kube pocket. It works with both the bags but works better with the R25.
The usual stuff that I carry in the bag are either - laptop + shoes + random stuff (sweater, or some light grocery items). Both R20 and R25 were able to accommodate these combinations. R20, obviously, got a lot fuller than the R25. I couldn't fit the full length riding shoes in R20 but low-ankle riding shoes fit in. R25 could fit my Shoei helmet. Although I don't usually carry the helmet in the backpack, it was a benefit that I considered.
R20 has one clip across the chest and a belt across the stomach. R25 just has 2 clips. Therefore, R25 was much faster to put on and off. This was a plus for me.
Both the bags have 2 zippers - one main pocket and one outer pocket. Someone wrote that in R25, you have to undo the 2 top buckles to get to the outer pocket. That is not true. You can open the zipper of the outer pocket without opening the buckles. You can also get away with opening the main zipper without opening the buckles if the bag is not very full. Even when the bag is full, you only need to undo the top buckle to open the main zipper. I found it very convenient.
In the main compartment, R25 has an advantage. It has a waterproof pouch. That was a plus for me.

As per the quadlock design, many people have written about it. I can't add anything more. It works. It takes weight away from your shoulders.

The bag is pricey but with a 10 year warranty, you would really not need another bag unless you want more space.

Finally - Revzilla was great with the shipping. It arrived in 1-2 days.

Great Backpack
I always do a search before I buy a product so these types of reviews help me out in my decisions. For what its worth Im giving my 2 cents worth.

I am 5'7" 210 pounds with wide shoulders and 44.5" chest. I was worried about the pack fitting to tight. Fully loaded (I will explain below) with my heaviest XL Carhartt fleece lined hooded jacket with two shirts the pack fits with some room. I don't have a riding jacket so Im using the Carhartt as a reference. It might get a little tight if I layered up with a sweatshirt but still think its doable.

Now what can I hold in this pack. I ride my bike for fun not for commuting. When riding around town I wanted a pack that holds water, wallet, phone, keys, extra t-shirt, small towel, sunglasses, a pair of Vans shoes, baseball hat, riding gloves and my G 23 with spare mag. It does this well with room to spare. Now this is what I can pack and fit if needed. 2 pair of Levis, 3 t-shirts, 2 pair of heavy cargo shorts, 3 socks, 3 underwear, baseball hat, sunglasses on the key clip, phone, deodorant stick, toothbrush, 2 liter (not completely full) water bladder, and my G 23. This is packed full with only room to stuff small items. I was on the fence between the R-25 and R-30. Took the chance on the R-25 and happy I did. I think the R-30 would have been to big for around town and I would over pack it on longer runs. Only thing is it would be nice if Kriega offered a waterproof bag for the R-25 like the R-30.

All in all this pack does what I need it to do and still has loading options. It seems built very well and I like its profile. It fits me good even with a heavy jacket. Be prepared as this pack is very simple in design and not much in pocket accessories. I like the simpleness, its a plus to me. Very happy with the R-25. Hope this helps with, what can it hold questions and how does it fit bigger wide type people.

quality commuter-sized backpack
Pros
Quality materials, robust construction, thoughtful design. Harness system is easy to use and adjustable.

Cons
There really are no flaws. If I had to niggle, I would prefer a dual zipper on the main compartment. At least it's heavy duty. Also would prefer some genuine retro-reflectivity rather than just a shiny patch.

Comments -
At its price point, you're paying for more than just a back pack. Hopefully it will still be working well 10 years from now.

Design -
The R25 harness system is unique and interesting, but is it really any better than the standard backpack fare with shoulder straps, waist belt, and maybe a chest strap? Oddly enough, I found its big brother R35 to be extraordinarily stable, too bad I couldn't live with the zipper harness fastener. The R25 has a couple of easy to use clasps as part of their Quadloc system, better than anything else that clicks together.

There is one exterior zipper compartment that is the perfect size for a couple of small, nylon "envelopes" that make up my "man purse". They're semi-permanent fixtures in the pack while everything else goes in and out of the main compartment on a daily basis. Nice, wide opening makes that easy. Compression straps keep things from getting wiggly.

Fit and comfort -
Have been wearing this pack for a week of daily commuting and not sure if the fit is dialed in yet. I'm very used to pack belts around my waist and am unsure about having the support point moved up to my solar plexus. It's not uncomfortable, but maybe not any better either.

Accessories -
US5 and Kube Pocket.

The US5 attaches neatly to the rear of the R25 and offers modest additional storage. Unfortunately, mounting it covers the only rear-facing shiny patch. At least the Kriega logo is still available, and you paid for it. The logo and shiny patch should swap positions. I don't see myself keeping the US5 mounted on the pack as it's mostly unnecessary bulk. Hope to find a good use for it because it's nifty.

The Kube Pocket may have some value if you have absolutely no pockets on your jacket. Otherwise it's not a good value and is a bit of an abberation hanging off the pack. It's not a hard case so not recommended for glasses even if they do fit inside. It's not sized right for a wallet or most smartphones, so honestly, I can't figure a use for it.

I realize my review is not as glowing as many. Perhaps it should be as a justification for the price, or maybe the price makes me more critical. Bottom line - good pack, I think it's a keeper.

1,593 Miles ridden with, and still goin'!
I planned to take a road trip on my bike from Everett, WA all the way down San Diego, CA just last week. The trip lasted 6 days of riding through morning fog, rain, high winds up northern Cali, blistering desert heat through the 101, and lets not forget the thousands of bugs that decided to collide with me on the way back down south. Nary a scratch or a loose thread, no fade or frays, and no leaks. My fully stuffed R25 kept all my gear dry.

The R25 also stayed secured on my back the whole time. Adjusting the straps to fit was easy enough--just remember that the shoulder strap keepers are elastic, therefore you can pull the plastic buckle through to get the 'small' adjustment dot. That took me a minute to figure out.

Out of the box, I found the finish of the product to be top notch. I have a little bit of OCD when it comes to loose or frayed threads, and I meticulously scour ANY item I purchase (clothes, backpacks, shoes, whatever) for these culprits and either cut them or cauterize them with a lighter. The R25 surprised me by only having a handful small imperfections.

The perfect back pack...
I had concerns with the size of the R 25, but it's perfect. Leaving for work in the mornings I ride with cold weather clothes, then afternoons I have to strip down. You can pack this thing and it carries the load great. I read that you can barely feel it on your back, and it's true. It's very comfortable, aero, and stays in place. You can easily pack a weekend trip in it, but its not bulky with light loads. Some say that it needs more pockets, etc. If you need pockets buy a man purse. If you need to carry a load buy the Kriega R 25.

Worth Every Dollar
I reluctantly purchased this backpack, I was hesistant because of it's price and it's unavailability at my local bike shops. I was convinced by the videos, reviews, and return policy to take a chance and I'm glad I did. The bag feels extremely durable and is easy to take on and off with gloves and a jacket. The harness system balances the weight on your chest not your shoulders. I loaded the bag with an IPad, metal canteen/thermos, rain jacket, a text book, and 2 -4lb dumbells and the weight was so managable that my 7yr and 10yr old sons were surprised how light it felt on their backs. When I took the pack off their backs they were amazed at how heavy it actually was.
I also like having the ability to use a "camelbak" water bag with the Kriega. I used one during a hot ride and it worked perfectly. I "snaked" the hose through the top of the pack and tucked it under my shoulder strap when I didn't need it. Worked great.
I use the Kriega even when I'm not riding. It's a great bag and I'm happy with my purchase.

Mostly good. Some disappointment.
Overall I love my new pack. It's *much* more comfortable than the messenger bag that it replaced, which was the primary motivation for its purchase.

However, for a pack that is so expensive, I would expect parts not to break within 3 days of purchase.

The sliders used to adjust the lower straps are a little bit difficult to adjust, and one of the pull tabs broke on my second attempt to adjust the fit of the pack (fine-tuning the fit after my first day's commute with it). Disappointing for something that cost so much.

I know I probably could have availed myself of that 10-year warranty, but didn't want to hassle with shipping it back for something that was so easy to replace myself. Hopefully if I encounter any further deficiencies in workmanship (Unlikely, from what I can tell from the rest of the pack's construction.), they will stand behind that warranty.

Still, Kriega might want to re-think the design of those pull tabs and replace them with something a bit more robust. I expect my simple repair of knotted cord to outlast any plastic-crimp pull tab they could have sourced, and is likely cheaper.

Size wise the pack is adequate for my daily commute load (Typically: 15" laptop, change of clothes, 20 oz. thermos, shaker bottle, spare face shield + various chargers and what not.), but just barely. I would have sized up, but I don't like the form factor of the R30 with its multiple pouches and zippers, and the R35 is too large for my needs.

tldr; Having lived with it for a week, I think it will serve my needs well.
