Product Review: Kriega R15 Rucksack

Kriega R15 Rucksack, £79

Time tested: 20 months/ 26,000 miles

What’s good? The R15 has been my rucksack of choice for the last 20 months. I use it for my 500-mile a week commute, when I travel abroad and for off-roading. It’s my do-it-all backpack. It’s small, light, compact and extremely tough. After all those miles there is no fraying or damage to the bag. It’s in perfect nick and comes with a 10-year guarantee. It’s got two inner pockets and one outer. It’s easy to strap other Kriega bags to it and you can use the Kriega hydration pack with it too on your adventures. It’s a short backpack so it can also double up for use with Kriega’s RS3 waistpack.

What’s not? It’s not waterproof! What’s that all about? For £79 I’d expect it to be. I use a cheap waterproof liner instead, as this fact is the only thing that lets down an otherwise perfect product. Also, it is the smallest rucksack Kriega make, that’s why I like it, but be warned, it is only 15 litres and may not suit everyone as an everyday bag.
