Expensive, but worth it...
If you need something more "professional" looking than a backpack, the Kriega Urban Messenger Bag is a great option. It's expensive, yes. But it will do anything that a backpack will do, and will look better doing it. The fit is particularly nice -- the side that sits against your back is fully rubberized, so it won't slide around, especially with the front strap clicked in. It also sits nice and low on your back, so it doesn't catch on your helmet, as backpacks sometimes do. And it's much easier to get on/off over an armored jacket than a backpack is.

If I had one issue with it, it's that it could use a few more zippered pouches to keep things like pens, flash drives, business cards, phone, etc. It's not a deal killer, but would be a nice option. The Kube Pocket is a nice add-on, and creates an very convenient place to keep a phone and wallet.

Nice Messenger Bag
I was looking for a motorcycle messenger bag for the city, the Kriega Urban WP Messenger Bag gets it done. It doesn't distribute the weight quite as well as my OGIO Mach 3 backpack (since it has one strap and not two), but it's much better for carrying into an office environment. The fit and finish is very nice, you can tell it's going to last for years to come. Haven't tested the waterproof functionality yet, but I can't imagine it leaking. I paired this with the Kriega Kube Pocket, it's great for my garage door opener, one press and I'm in.

Great replacement for backpack
I love this bag. Being water proof is a great feeling when I have to head home in the rain with my laptop and iPad on my back. I will say it looks a lot smaller than I expected but it can pack a lot. This time of year it's pretty chilly in the morning so I'll wear my leather jacket to work then it's in the 90's on my way home. This thing has enough room to pack not only my tech but I can stash my leather jacket and still have plenty of room for misc stuff. Best purchase I've made in a long time.

Best bag I've ever owned!
It took me a while to pull the trigger on a Kriega because of the cost. I got by with bags that I currently owned, but the Messenger Bag is a game changer for me. I mainly commute on my bike, so ease of sliding the bag around me to access the zippered pocket where I keep my wallet has been amazing. Unfortunately I have had to test the waterproof capabilities of this bag (summers in FL) and can attest that they work as advertised. My sneakers, change of clothes and laptop were bone dry.
On the occasion that I do get out to do some twisties, I'll take the bag anyway to hold my wallet/phone/water, because my bike has a single seat for the rider and pillion (getting under my seat isn't as easy when you have to take the whole thing off).
I look forward to expanding my storage with the Kube as soon as I can.
All in all, an amazing product, and well worth the money!

Dry, Easy, Rugged, Stylish
My first impression when I unpacked this bag was "I may never need another bag, this thing is going to last forever." Extremely well made with durable materials. I won't get into the tech specs of the material details (that's available above), but the look and feel of them is very rugged and seams, zipper, etc are solidly manufactured.

I haven't exposed it to torrential downpour conditions yet, but it remained bone dry in moderate rain. Due to the materials and design, I can't imagine a way your contents could possibly get wet.

Speaking of that zipper... It's a great zipper, waterproof, sturdy. Which is a good thing because I've had to pull the absolute s*%t out of it. The problem is that the inner lining of the side entry pouch sometimes gets caught in the zipper. And when it does it takes a herculean effort to get it uncaught. I'm concerned that this will eventually lead to tearing of that inner lining.

Videos have mentioned the fact that the external material is slightly 'tacky' in nature and promotes it staying put on your back when riding without the need of the waist strap. This is true almost to a fault. Depending on the material of your jacket, swinging this thing around for quick access to that side pouch for example takes serious tugging without loosening the shoulder strap. Not a negative, just an observation.

Those are my only "observations" with this bag though. It gets stars across the board, the only things I would add is maybe external zipper access to the front flap pouch (if that could be done without jeopardizing dryness) and a slim padded separator in the main compartment for a laptop or other sensitive electronics.

Excellent bag once it's worn for a few days
I own several other kriega products, the Urban WP is from the same mold. High quality components, great fit. As one reviewer noted, the internal zipper gets stuck on the pocket fabric...i ended up running duct tape on the inside to keep it pulled down...annoying.
Took me a few days to get the hang of the bag, such as fit (it won't hardly more once cinched down) and access (zipper issue, stiff material), now i won't be found without it. You will need a laptop sleeve if you carry a laptop...no padding to speak of.
Highly recommended, this replaced my R30 backpack just fine.

Hey guys, this is more of an idea. I got the strap that no one uses and attached the buckles on to the sides where one of the loops is that can hold a US-5. Now, the top can attach to the side like dude in the video said. Hope it helps someone.

Great Commute/Work Bag
I bought this bag to replace a backpack that I had been using and I wanted something more professional. I ride year round in California, rain or shine, and so weather proofing was key. I haven't gotten to test it in the wet yet but I have other roll top bags and none of them have failed me yet. The white interior layer is removable and so I did and I ended up rolling the rolltop back in on itself so that the bag simply acts as a bag and I don't have to go through the hassle of opening it when I don't need the weather protectiveness. The only thing that would have made this review flawless is if they had added interior pockets and organization spots. Otherwise, the bag stays in place on my back without the waist straps and is easy to put on and take off. I highly recommend.

Sweet waterproof and durable bag
I was looking to replace my existing messenger bag and various backpacks that were not motorcycle purpose built with this puppy. Awesome bag. It's rugged, waterproof and super easy to put on, tighten up and go. The backside is rubberized so when it's tightened down, there is NO movement once it's on your back and you are on the road. You actually have to adjust your jacket once it's in place.
I will mention that the convenient ZIPPER pocket is NOT ACCESSIBLE if you have a pair of the 5 L pouches attached to the front - which is kind of a bumber. I am going to be picking up an organizational accessory from Tom Bin (Horizontal Freudian Slip) and maybe a Horizontal Brain Cell for some extra laptop protection.

Excellent bag with a waterproof zipper issue.
Great bag. it doesn't move on your back, easy to access items. I'm not used to the "dump everything into it" purse-like bags, but I'm getting used to it. My biggest complaint is the waterproof zipper and the inside lining on that pocket. the lining gets caught in the zipper EVERY SINGLE TIME I'm unzipping it. very annoying. Other than that, great bag.
