Perfect Motorcycle Backpack for Gym Gear + Some.
Looking for a quality Motorcycle backpack that will fit all your Gym Gear + Some? Then the Kriega R35 is your bag! I could not be happier with my purchase and would recommend this bag to anyone looking for a quality backpack, with a good amount of room to pack your items.

After a lot of online searching and reading many reviews, I ended up deciding on and purchasing the Kriega R35 Backpack from Revzilla. (And i research a LOT before i purchase!! I want to be sure that i am putting my money towards quality products before buying online).

At the time i purchased, (May 2016), the Kriega R35 did seem a little more on the expensive side compared to some of the other bags i was looking at and considering. However the Kriega customer reviews were superb so i pulled the trigger. And i am happy to say I'm so glad that i did! I couldn't be any more happy with the bag. It is definitely worth every penny. Like another reviewer said, "Do It! You wont regret it!". I too can now personally attest to this statement. Do It!

I was unsure about the size at first, but i ended up going with the larger model Kriega R35 - And boy am I glad i did.

I ride a Yamaha Raider and don't have saddle bags. The main reason for purchasing a backpack for my bike is that i gym / run almost every day during work lunch hours, so i needed something to accommodate my gear. My main requirements for my new backpack?

(1) Enough room to carry all my gym gear + some.
(2) Be comfortable (And Safe), to ride with.
(3) Durable and Quality Manufacturing.

The Kriega R35 has over delivered on all of the above, especially its comfort and capacity. It is absolutely perfect for my needs and it meets all my expectations of what i was looking for and wanting in a Motorcycle Backpack.

The zip in and out harness works really well once you have it set. The weight distributes nicely across your chest and hips and it is easy to ride with.

I read some reviews and people were questioning lack of Pockets on the bag. For me personally the R35 has plenty of pockets for my needs.

I LOVE the Chest panel that includes 2 x zip pockets for easy access to must have items. These pockets admittedly are not overly large in size, but my LG G3 Smarthphone fits snug in one pocket, (and i mean snug - don't think anything bigger would fit) - And my wallet fits the other chest panel pocket. (Wallet has a few credit cards and dollar bills. Be warned, a bulky wallet with wads of cash wont fit well, if at all). But it is so great to have such easy access to money at the Gas Station. Also i enjoy the fact that my wallet has my magnetic security badge in it, so once at work, its off the bike, and with the R35 still securely fastened to my back, all i need to do is lean down at the security door at work and it will open. The magnetic card reader easily reads the magnetic badge located inside my wallet that i keep in the front zipper pocket on the Kriega R35 chest panel. No need to rummage around trying to find the wallet in your pack, you know where it is every time. Convenience at its best.

Items I pack in my bag on a daily basis:
Gym Shoes
Gym Shorts,
Gym Socks,
Gym Underwear
Workout Singlet
Towel for showering
Hand Towel
Flip Flops
Nalgene 32 Oz Water Bottle
Degree 3.8 OZ deodorant x 2
Garmin Pouch with Watch + Headphones
My man bag, which I throw all my work items into - Reading Glasses, Vitamins, Gum etc
Lunch = Banana, Cereal Bar + Lean Protein Shake 14 fl OZ
I even manage to take my coffee each morning with me in my Kriega R35! This was a pleasant surprise and I achieve this by pouring my coffee into a Starbucks Stainless Steel 24 fl oz cup, I then slide the stainless cup down into the front mesh pocket on the Kriega, making sure i tighten the shock cord compression for a snug upright fit! Coffee is still hot when i get to work! (9 Mile Commute). No spills whatsoever.
Finally, when needed, my 15" Laptop can squeeze in as well.

As you can see, that is a lot of items for a daily work commute. Probably more than what the average rider is looking for. But the bag holds up nicely and it makes taking my belongings to work a breeze. I am also really happy with the way in which the bag distributes all that weight. It makes for a comfortable ride and the backpack does not feel "Heavy" at all. No sore muscles either which is nice.

So, if your looking for a motorcycle backpack that you can carry your gym gear in whilst having extra room for other items, then this is your bag! You truly wont be disappointed.

If you don't have the requirement to carry so many items, you would probably be better of with a smaller sized Kriega.

All in all, i'm a very happy customer, and i would definitely buy the Kriega Brand again. Thanks Kriega for an awesome product and thanks Revzilla for speedy shipping. No complaints at all.

Other thoughts: I am 6'2" Tall, 195lbs, 36W 34L Jeans and wear a Large size dress shirt. I also wear my XL Speed and Strength MC Jacket that has Kevlar back protector and shoulder / elbow reinforcement. So i bulk out a bit. The Kriega 35 fits me perfectly over this jacket and there is probably some room for adjusting the bag to make it bigger. However, I used to weigh 240lbs and i am not sure how the bag would have fitted me then. If at all. If your larger in size, you may want to research how the bag would fit your body size and what its capabilities are. I don't know that info.

Finally, i cant comment on how waterproof the Kriega 35 is. Other peoples reviews say it is fine, but i am yet to ride with it in the rain so cant give an honest review on this subject.

Now I understand why this bag commands that price!
I was a little skeptical at first since I was already dealing with size changes in Ogio line of NoDrag bags. I liked the aerodynamics of it, but the interior space and weight distribution proved too challenging for longer rides or shopping. Let me clarify: The Ogio NoDrag moto bags are not a competitor to this particular product; this is for a different use and size.
After viewing Anthony's detailed description and demonstration, I figured it was worth a try. It's hard to beat the RevZilla no hassle return policy after all.
This was money well spent. I don't consider myself overly technical when it comes to motorcycle riding gear, but I DO understand what feels comfortable and manageable when riding. First of all, I have to admit the QUADLOC harness system appeared a little gimmicky and looked like its own project just to get it right. Since I went into it with an open mind of 'surprise me', I was not disappointed. The harness system is definitely different from anything else you may have worn and may take a little getting used to. Once you understand your 'fit', it becomes so simple to use. After trying it around the house for a while then riding, I didn't really notice the pack was on me. There is no tiring of the shoulder or neck area. It may initially feel as though your bag is too low until you start riding and realize the location is ideal and just works!
Your arms have full range of motion and you really can slide your arms through while wearing your riding gear. The video makes it look as though you can only get that level of comfort if you are wearing a t-shirt, but he was telling the truth- the space and comfort are there. Strange buckle system for me, but I'll try anything different if it might work.
The two front zippers built into the QUADLOC harness make access to items such as a wallet, ID card, or keys very rider friendly. My only suggestion would be to include a strong, clear velcro ID holder on the front left flap of the harness. This makes it more efficient to show your license or other ID if needed to access a facility or making transactions that require presentation.
The interior. 35 liters. That's big. But the bag doesn't look sloppy or cumbersome at all. I found it hard to believe it could hold so much until I had to stop a moto gear store for a oil changing kit with funnel. I easily fit that in there along with a complete change of clothing to include a thick hoodie and showering gear.
The front mesh pocket with shock-cord keeps your newly expanded Kriega 35 compacted and secured. The top mesh pocket is handy for smaller items you may need to access quickly. Just understand this bag is not the waterproof version so if that is a deal breaker for you, Kriega has a bag to cover that, too! Since there is a nice slot for a laptop, etc., I recommend always keeping a plastic bag in there just in case you need it. You might not ever need it but good to have anyway.
This bag is a little larger than what you may be accustomed to, but the strong, durable features on top of a great warranty are what get the job done. Don't forget to claim your additional items from the promotion that ends soon! I am glad I took the chance on purchasing this bag. I don't know why I never heard of it until Anthony reviewed it. Now I wonder how I ever did without it. This is THE bag to travel with. It gets a few stares and comments referring to looking like a starship trooper, but you won't mind! Enjoy the new year!

I carry heavy stuff
I am a full time student, I work full time, and I manage to go the gym. I carry my laptop, binder, notebook, gym shoes and clothes and my lunch. Sometimes it weights 20 pounds and it feels like I have nothing on my back. The reflectors get dirty after use but the quality is good. The harness is excellent. I sometimes can't put my arms thru it because I have leather but I figured out if I swing my backpack it will be easier.

Best motorcycle backpack.
Love this backpack. I've owned a number of motorcycle-specific packs. The Kriega R35 is by far the best pack I've ever purchased. The pack is sturdy and build quality is excellent. Lots of room to store things. And the best part is that it is no matter how much weight I've put in the pack, I barely feel it when I ride. Even weighed down, there are no painful points on my shoulders or back. In 50 years, when I am 80 and I finally manage to wear out the pack, I am going to buy another one to use with my customized, chromed-out wheelchair scooter.

A quick shout out to Revzilla... You guys are great. If everyone ran online shopping the way you guys do, then there really would be no need for bricks and mortar. Kudos. Keep up the good work.

Roomy, super comfortable riding pack with great features.
I have several pieces of Kriega's collection already and am a big believer in their product. I purchased this pack a few weeks ago and am still putting it through it's paces.

Things I like:
It's a solid stylish pack, and I am generally happy with the build.
The shoulder harness and chest pad/pockets are beefy but super comfortable, especially riding down the freeway and being able to shoulder check with ease. I've had the 35L pack stuffed full but barely notice it when I'm riding.
The internal compartment is large enough to fit my monster Dell laptop.
The zippers are water tight and the pockets all seem well thought out.

Things I don't like:
The bag is advertised as having 3M Scotchlite reflectivity built in, which is a big reason I purchased this model. However, observers tell me the silver on the pack is barely noticeable and that I am still nearly blacked out from behind. Kriega could have gotten a lot more aggressive with reflective piping on the seams and reflective webbing/straps. In my mind, this is a critical design omission for such a specialized riding pack.

BEST LARGE moto backpack I've had - NOT WATERPROOF!
I've had this backpack for awhile now and have taken it in multiple long trips, packed to the brim!
- Good back support! My back didn't suffer (too much!) on long 8-10 hour trips
- Built in pocket for hydration pack and hole for the tube
- Big zipper to hold the straps together with pockets for wallet/credit cards etc.
- Roomy
- NOT waterproof! My stuff was wet after four hours in the pouring rain. Granted, it's a long time before it seeped through. After that I put in a garbage bag first inside and then load it up, no problems then
- have to adjust your riding (especially on a sportbike) when fully loaded. Center of gravity's a bit higher plus have to adjust with the extra weight when cornering
-hydration tube does not stay in place with the provided velcro.

Overall, I'm very happy with the product.

My first motorcycle backpack
I bought this due to its size since I plan to commute a lot and would need to carry my work clothes with me. It's big enough to hold everything I need, though it gets a little full each time. Sometimes I wish I could fit just a little more into it, but then I suppose it would just mean that I would have to get saddle bags for the motorcycle instead.

The backpack sticks to me snugly, and I don't need to adjust it each time I put it on. When riding, I barely feel it at all.

Another reason why I got this is for the pockets on your chest. However, the zipper is too small for me to work with while I have my gloves on. I need to tap my ID to get into the parking lot, but since it's on an incline and I can't lean over to touch my chest to the id scanner, I usually have to stop halfway down the block to take my id out. I suppose I could tie a string to the zipper, but it would feel tacky to me.

The pockets in the zipper is also a slight downside. I always wear my perforated jacket, but when I have my backpack on, my chest behind the pocket feels wet. The rest of my chest feels cool and dry. Perhaps if they made it slightly perforated to allow some air flow, it would feel more comfortable.

The only thing I wish it had would be a built-in helmet holder. You can always bring the bag that your helmet came in and put the straps over the backpack before putting it on, but it's a hassle. I just carry my helmet in my hand.

Great in weather and comfortable over long distance
Bought this ahead of a long weekend trip late in the season up to New England (800 miles round trip). Very comfortable throughout, definitely didn't appreciate before the benefits of a purpose designed/built motorcycle backpack. Finish is rugged and simple to adjust on the go. Not to mentioned all my gear stayed dry through 3+ hours riding through the rain. Very impressed!

Worth buying
I am a commuting student that wanted a bag that could stand the wind. I used a previous backpack that lasted about a week before tearing in certain locations. This bag is essentially a void. When opening it seemed disheartening, but once you opened it up and started throwing stuff in a grin came to my face. The bag is huge, I can fit my riding jacket (with insulation layer), gloves, a few text books, wallet, keys, and some other minimal things into this bag. Not to mention its back portion where you can place items under the cargo-net like portion.

The way the bag feels when its on you is great. When carrying a light load its barely noticeable and feels really secure. The chest pockets are awesome for small items like your phone. The adjustable straps allow the bag to conform to your body and feel comfortable at whatever speed you're traveling.

I have not ridden with this in the rain yet, but from looking at the construction of the bag I think it will fair well. Also, one thing I do not like is the reflective aspects. It was claimed to be a pretty reflective bag, but by testing the bag did not seem very reflective.

It looked like a sturdy backpack that can be used to store my things while on the motorbike. Since the aftermarket saddlebags are priced ridiculously high (around 1k) this bag is at a quarter of it's price. It can hold a full faceshield helm and then some, it has my vote. Also like that it has reflective material for night riding, which I do a lot of. This bag will see a lot of use, let's see if it can handle it before a review is written for it.

I ride a big adventure bike. Yes, I do the highway/hotel thing, more often though it get used as intended (off road). My wife, however is the total traveler (except for the moto). She has dragged me on long Himalayan treks to luxury cruses. I am extremely unorganized but have learned to pack with extra care to make up for this. I needed a back pack that would hold a lot of gear, work as a 'carry on' for international travel and most of all. be comfortable on my back for hours on end.

Already a Kriega convert (thanks Anthony) with an R20. I'm slowly progressing out of "noob" territory and want to start doing some longer trips across Cali. Like the thought of throwing a couple of days worth of gear in this thing and just disappearing. Bummed it doesn't have the same quad lock closures as the R20, but every review I've read worldwide (yep, I'm THAT guy) gives praise to the big-*ss zipper closure chest harness, so that's good enough for me. Kriega is the gold standard. Period.

after numerous hours broke down in serval days searching in the computer for a good backpack that I could use while ridding my motorcycle, mountain bike, and or just for weekend trips this seems like the top of my choices. I can only hope it is what everyone seems to say it is. I really found no bad ratings or comments for this or any Kriega backpacks. Im just going with the I rather have it and not needed, than need it and not have it. (space wise).
Max on Jun 10, 2014
After perusing countless product listings, articles, and reviews, Kriega seems to provide the best ROI. Do your homework and you'll come to the same conclusion. Sure, initial cost is a bit daunting; however, long-term peace-of-mind is priceless. Which Kriega model to purchase will depend on your needs. For me, I chose the R35 for its spaciousness and bleeding-edge design. While it lacks the waterproof feature of the R30, I'll purchase a separate 35L Waterproof Dry Bag to use inside the backpack.

I am looking into a bag that will serve as a roomy school bag, in which I need to be able to carry a 17in laptop in a sleeve, various binders, a book or two, and a few misc smaller items. I also want it to feel secure while riding (which I am sure this Kriega R35 is). Simply put, will this bag be able to comfortably hold the items above and possibly more?

Thank you!
Zackery B on May 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I commuted with this backpack. You will have no trouble fitting the items you've listed. One of the pockets will fit a 17" laptop securely. The main compartment is expandable and will swallow up your binders plus much more.
Has anyone used the R35 for basic backpacking/hiking? Thinking of pulling the trigger; it would be nice to be able to justify the price by knowing the pack can double as a day pack for hiking. I do wish it had a side pocket for a canteen though.
Steve H on Aug 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have one and I've packed mine up pretty full and carted around off the bike. One could use it for hiking in a pinch, but I wouldn't if I could help it as it has a sleeker or more aerodynamic form factor by design, and to that extent it doesn't have the greater capacity a pack designed for hiking or backpacking would have.
I just ordered the Kriega R25 bag. My question is on the Kriega R35 bag for 2014. Do you have any info on it? The only reason I did not order it was because of the big 'ole flap in front and the airflow blockage. Do you know if this has been removed redesigned for their new R35 redesign?
KEVIN L on Dec 2, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The big flap does block some air but even on hot days air does flow down into your chest. I ride a 996 with a double bubble and I still get ok airflow. If your in an upright position it will block more air. I keep my phone in the left pocket as well and still get ok airflow. I really like this bag. Once adjusted to your body it stays there. The only issue I had was the semi ridged back panel. It was about 1 inch to long when my solo seat is on. It has a higher rear hump and would make it hard to look up high. I just rolled the top back a bit and it was perfect. It takes a few rides to get the front and rear helmet clearances down but when you do your shoulders will love you. The weight disappears as this pack distributes it off your shoulders and does not shift around when leaning. It holds up well in a crash as well. An unfortunate lowside in the canyons with a nice back slide rear somersault at the end left me sitting up resting on the pack like I just decided to take a break. Very minor scuffing was the result. Not a single stitch popped. Oh fyi when off the bike. You can walk around with it unzipped but it's not an over one shoulder bag.The R35 is my go to bag.
What is your best Waterproof backsack?

BEST ANSWER: Well. Not much you can do if it was not made that way. In the military they still issue us duffle bags but toss in an equal sized waterproof liner will roll up top so you can make water resistant backpacks into proof packs. I have the r25 and can't recommend kriega quality enough. I'd have no problem pulling the trigger on the kriega R30/35 were I looking at rainy day riding. While pricey how often do you buy backpacks? I'll ride with mine till it falls off and buy another which after 30k miles doesn't look like I'll be shopping for another any time soon. Not a atich has popped and I use it every day to work and back and on long weekend rides. The strap system works! I regularly haul 5 2L bottles home and my neck and shoulders love Kriegas setup.
Will this pack fit a jacket and a full face helmet with room to spare?
A S on Oct 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: As for the jacket, a typical cool jacket will fit with no problem, but a riding jacket with all the fitted padding/protection may be a tight fit but possible. But trying to fit a helmet in there as well will probably not work at all. I just squeezing my small size Arai in there and it didn't work for me.

I definitely recommend the Kriega Helmet Skin if you plan to store the helmet safely in any it has a cool carry handle!

I hope that helps.
This bag is the perfect size for me. My only problem is that it is not waterproof. I don't want to go down to the 30L because I'd be giving up 5L and I need all the space I can purchase in a backpack. My question: is there a way to waterproof the R35? is there a separate liner I can purchase? I'll be carrying books and occasionally electronics and would like everything to stay nice and dry. Any advice, ideas and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time.

BEST ANSWER: I've been riding with the pack for awhile now, rain or shine. The only way that water would penetrate your pack is if you endo'd into a pond. The air flow barrier that forms around you while riding doesn't allow the water to seep into the material. Red lights are not a problem either. If you are truly worried about a lap top or other electronic device the grocery bag is an inexpensive option depending on the frequency of rain in your area. I have taken the pack down the interstate in a torrential down pour and everything was perfectly dry.. except for my shoes
Does this backpack have any issues if you're wearing a jacket/suit with a speed hump?
A shopper on Jun 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Not that I've noticed, I have a leather jacket with a D3O spine protector and a speed hump, no issues so far. The tightening system allows you to adjust the straps at 4 different points; so with a speed hump, the bag will just sit a little lower to allow for some extra clearance. Hopefully this helps, It's a great bag and worth the $$
Can the R35 carry a full face helmet?
Eric C on Apr 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Good luck ...going to be a tight fit.
Anyone know if this will have room for a large carhart jacket and steel toe boots sz11 maybe a change of clothes too?
A shopper on Apr 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, I don't think it would fit all that. It feels incredible on your back but really isn't that big. I carry running shoes and a change of clothes and that's about it.
Does this backpack have issues with jacket/suits that have a speed hump?
Alberto Jose C on Jun 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: My jacket does not have a speed hump but the backpack itself is very adjustable, comfortable, and well made. There is also about an inch of cushion on the back that may help comform around the hump a little. I would recommend getting it and just trying it on with your jacket to see if you are comfortable with it on. If not, Revzilla is great about making it easy to return. It is a great backpack for riding. I bought a second Kriega for my wife to use on her bike as well.
