Kriega gear

It looks slick, and for the price it damn well should be. Does anyone know if Kriega gear is actually as good as its cracked up to be.I need some soft touring luggage and it looks a winner but as always best to ask the experts first:smile

US-10 and US-20 are good...

...but hold more like 5 and 10 litres than the 10 and 20 their names suggest.  Waterproof, robust, but make sure the straps lie flat or they can loosen.

Try one out first!

Looks great and I recently opted for a R25 rucksack and used it for a 3 day 1000mile trip. Now sold it! Ok it was well loaded but my shoulders ached like mad and it didn't matter how I adjusted the straps it just didn't feel comfortable. Watch out for US range as sometimes they can rub against the rear tail pieces and mark it. Getting a ventura system for the next jaunt. Lesson learnt!.

The

US-10 is something I use for my chain. Given it gets the chain shoved in and out every day with no care whatsoever and it's pretty damn heavy (19mm chunky bats turd), it's held up pretty well. The waterproofing seems to be intact after a good 8 months of abuse and it's also strapped on in a way that's totally inconsiderate to the stitching, using cable ties (to ensure the chain can't move around when cornering and try to kill me) and it's held up nicely. For touring it's way too small though. Holds a pair of trainers.


If the rest of their kit is similar, then yeh, recommended. I'd still never bother with a waterproof backpack though.

Kriega

I recently bought the Kriega R35 rucksack (£99). It is excellent. The straps are nice and wide and do not cut into your arms like normal rucksacks. It's also easy to put on as the straps do not get caught on your elbows. It is very comfortable to wear as each strap has two points of adjustment at the top and bottom.

Before I bought it I'd read a few reviews saying that they are not suitable for sport bikes as the back of your helmet rubs on the top of the rucksack. I've had no problems. They obviously didn't adjust the straps properly as they allow the rider to wear the rucksack high or low on your back.

expensive but yes

Kreiga r35 was one of the best £90 i spent. I use it everyday, its comfortable, gets loads in, very water resistant (at worst the thing at the top of the bag is ever so slightly damp.) - but im talking about 45 mins in torrential rain.

agree with "redpastyboy" its fine on sports bikes aswell and doesnt get in the way when looking in the rear view mirrors
