Kriega R35 Back Pack
Customer Product Reviews
Decent but not great
Sportbike shop service.....fantastic. Bag....ok its not waterproof so don't moan if you get a couple damp spots inside. That's fine for me. I didn't find the "allo" adjuster rings to be that good. Not a lot of friction and they can loosen off as you pull it on. It's also a bit low if you have any luggage on the tail unit making you sit forward on the bike. Like the front zip system with pockets.. convenient
Great bag solid construction
Really well made bag that should last a long time. Great features like the little plastic tabs that tie in the ends of the compression straps to stop them flailing in the wind blast. Easy adjustment straps. Not so sure about the front zip instead of quick release buckles on smaller models, it's tricky to put on without loading the zip. It maybe I have to get used to it. As this is motorbike specific the straps are plenty long enough. It sits very well on the back with loads of space. The compression straps will cinch the bag down when you have a small load. Overall I am very impressed with this bag.
Usual excellent Kriega standard
As with everything else the make, this is almost perfect. Large bag, very comfortable even when fully loaded, easy to put on and take off, and extremely stable when on the move. The chest connector is a bit different to normal, and takes a little bit of getting used to, but once you've got the straps adjusted and a bit of experience with it the pockets on the chest connector become a star feature. The only real addition I would have likes would be waterproof like the R30, but so far the water resistant properties have been more than enough. Highly recommend to anyone who needs a larger bag.
Really good and lots of space. As some others said as you start putting more and more in it seems to get bigger. I commute everyday and it's easy to fit my meal boxes (4) and clothes to change. Didn't test it in the rain though but the quality of the product seems to be able to withstand any rainstorm. It fits well to my position on the bike like it almost not there at all. Really happy with it despite the price tag but all in all 10 years warranty makes me feel quite safe.
I thought the hype around this bag meant it was a little overrated, but it really is great. It fits extremely well, looks good and there is a lot of space. I can take my laptop and change of clothes no problem, and it would be fine for a weekend if you packed sensibly. I really like the two zip pockets at chest level when the bag is fully on, extremely convenient. I haven't tested it in heavy rain but confident it will hold up. As an indication of its comfort - when I have it fully loaded I'm not in any major discomfort or rush to take it off, you almost forget it's there.
Feel like Mary Poppins
The amount of items I've managed to fit in this bag is quite ridiculous and on top of that it is super comfy, barely notice having it on. Yet to test out its waterproof capabilities. My only improvement to this would be to include some way of restraining the hydro pack when it is inserted inside the bag, but so far I'm very pleased with the product and service from SBS was excellent again.
Rode from Bournemouth to Heysham, about 325 miles and no shoulder ache at all. Then returned week later and again no aching. Got caught in heavy rain for 2 hrs and very very little water ingress and the zip pocket on front is brilliant for wallet etc, worth every penny.
