Verified Customer Reviews for Kriega OS-32 Soft Pannier
The OS system bag is great, I've broken some cheaper alternatives and thought it was time to get the best.
The straps to attach to the bike are Extra at £42 which is steep for a strap
Not the cheapest but I guess you get what you pay for. These are top quality soft panniers from a trusted manufacturer. Once you have a few I think you are in the Kriega ecosphere.
On the face of it the quality looks very good. I have a smaller pillion bag that I have used a number of times, and that is still going strong. The straps did become frayed, and I lost one (how it came off I have no idea). I have given this 4 stars as I have not used yet, but also because there probably should have been some bottom corner hard nylon protectors. Maybe an accessory the size of the base footprint that could utilize the 2 bottom straps to keep in place? When not in use, can just be tucked inside the folded pannier. I'd consider buying that if not too expensive.
I've had a Kriega rucksack for years which has stood up to daily all year round abuse. So, when considering new luggage Kriega we're going to be a consideration, I even equipped my bike with outback motortek xframes in anticipation! My main concern was ease of use having always had hard panniers. I needn't have worried. Easy to mount and dismount, I've barely thought about it on their first weekend away. The quality really does shine through and the price which I consider on the high side, actually looks a bargain now. Very easy to unload and load through the roll down top with the added bonus of a slimmer profile when empty if you want to leave them on. I've tried to think of negatives but I really can't. Highly recommended, I'm about to buy 2 12 litre OS bags to add capacity and versatility! Well done Kriega.
Kriega quality is top quality, no doubt about that. I love my hard panniers as they are a simple click and lock mechanism but I prefer these soft panniers. They are fiddly to get on the bike but are fully waterproof, safer for the rider and look cooler!
I've recently changed my bike from a Ducati Multistrada which hard panniers to a KTM 1290S SA which came with no panniers so needed a set of panniers that had good reviews, were robust and easy to install/ remove when travelling on our overseas trips. I did loads of research and even visited our local Sportsbike branch in Bristol to get hands on the panniers to see what they were like and how big they were. I was really impressed and chose the Kriega (I also have a number of other Kriega products as well so know the quality).
These panniers feel like they are bombproof, even more so than the other Kriega bags I have. They are extremely well made, very tough and yet a simple design which is easy to fit, access and secure. I went for 2 x 32ltr as that will be more than enough carrying capability without having to squeeze stuff in or add additional bags etc.
I have decided to buy the Motortek rack to secure directly to the bike however, these aren't available as yet due to my bike being new and Motortek not having the design completed and on the market. I'm told it will be soon.
To sweeten the deal, I waited to Black Friday and saved £100 on the cost for 2 panniers so very happy. As usual, excellent service from Sportsbikeshop.
I have tried lots of Soft Panniers, these are the best I have used. Thought they might be a bit large for my Triumph Scrambler. But once installed they look great. They take a lot, as well and open out to take all my stuff. Totally waterproff, even going through deep water of road. Nice to look in and find evey thing dry for a change. In 55 years of using panniers these are the best.
Been looking at soft panniers for awhile and done the usual of watching and reading all the reviews. I wanted something that I could swap between bikes easily and would take a beating if (when!) they are dropped off road. Liked the removable waterproof liners and being white easy to see inside. Although will get dirty quick are simple to wipe clean. Overall quality looks really good and expecting years of use. What swung it for me over other options was being able to fix directly to Outback Moto frames without the need of a mounting plate. 10 year guarantee for peace of mind. And then Sportsbikeshop put a discount on them… Usual faultless service from Sportsbikeshop.
Never used Kriega products before, but after extensive researching went for their OS-32 soft pannier. Impressed with the quality of build, materials used and functionality.
I only wanted to buy soft luggage for my bike and I only wanted to do this once. I have owned a Kriega R25 for 20 years and it is still going strong. I expect the OS-32's to deliver on that basis. I bought the mounting plate, the steel security, the Motech frames and the Kriega over-the-seat straps for extra piece of mind and I think I may even buy some more Kriega gear to go on the rack!!! The bike rack, that is :) I echo the other comments here and to add that SBS were a great biz to buy from, too. Well stocked and super-quick delivery.
Great piece of kit , keeps the water out looks like it will last .
fast delivery and also best price i could find .
Having had my other Kriega 20 bag for years now I knew These soft panniers would do the job. They look great are durable And 100% waterproof
Seems very well made and durable.
Simple attachment and easy to use.
Can't wait to try it out in the spring.
Bought these as an alternative to Hard panniers for off road trips on my 990 adventure. I chose these to replace my Magadans as I liked the idea that there are no straps over the seat for easy access for maintenance and to my tools. In addition I have just returned from a 3 week trip to Morocco and they performed flawlessly. Was great just to remove one pannier to take into hotels/ferry etc. I used the additional lock straps for peace of mind security. I also bought the additional over the seat straps just incase I had issues with my pannier frames. despite a few offs and lots of fresh fesh the panniers remained intact and the contents free from water and sand. Great luggage set.
I'm off to Romania next week with these panniers, so cant give a full review yet, but with the fitting to the bike, and several practice rides, all is good with the panniers. Easy to fit, and can also strap on my old Kriega drypacks to the top, rear and front, very versatile. Not wet tested yet, but inner liner bag and fold over closure will surely keep the rain out. Recommend buying the steelcore security straps for security, as they are expensive panniers, and don't want to lose them.
