Product review: Kriega Urban Messenger bag
Excellent quality, built to last and fashionable. Here's what we thought when we tested the Kriega Urban Messenger bag.
Time tested: 3 months/1000 miles
- We ride the new BMW S1000R Sport
- Super nakeds do it better
- In this week's issue: Guy tests TT Fireblade
- Bike of the day: Honda MSX125
- Looking for that perfect bike picture?
The Urban messenger bag combines fashion with functionality. It’s easy to put on and take off, even when fully kitted up. It looks great on the bike, is hard wearing and also has a completely waterproof main compartment, meaning that I don’t have to worry about my stuff getting drenched if I get caught out in a storm. The shoulder strap is easy to adjust and is very comfortable, it’s also able to be worn on either shoulder depending on the preference of the rider. There is also a detachable waist strap that will stop the bag from flapping around behind me at speed, however I hardly ever use it as the weight of my laptop keeps the bag in place very well. If the 16 litre capacity isn’t quite enough either, then you can add up to two of the Kriega US-5 Drypacks to take the total capacity to 26 litres.
It’s expensive, but you pay outstanding quality of the product and you really do get what you pay for, overall though this bag brilliant and I am just nit-picking.
