Product review: Kriega R15 rider pack

1 of 1

What's good and what's not about Kriega's R15 rider pack (£95)?

Tested over 12 months here's what we thought...

What’s good? Once on, it disappears – to the point, in fact, that it’s not uncommon to have a momentary panic attack: where’s my bloody rucksack! Oh, I’m still wearing it. Fit and adjustability are simply the best I’ve experienced.

The R15’s capacity is only 15 litres, but it still swallows a laptop plus a big bottle of water, goggles, spare gloves, phone…

Build quality is indestructible and it comes up lovely after a spin in the washing machine. It also accepts a hydration pack.

What’s not? It’s not waterproof.
