Kriega R30 Back Pack
Customer Product Reviews
I have looked and been tempted by the Kriega Packs for years but always felt they were overpriced. I ride daily, not a 4wheel tin can owner so bike is life. I have always just used a normal rucksack and survived ok. Recently I was working near the Sportsbikeshop shop in Milton Keynes so thought I'd head in for a wander. Initially I picked up the R15 and R20 and was immediately impressed by the quality. Spoke with the staff who then brought out the R25 and R30 to look at. This R30 is leaps and bounds ahead. Waterproof, which I can vouch for after back to back 200mile journeys where the bike doubled up as a jet ski. It is huge when fully loaded, I have got enough stuf in it to go away for 4nights including bulky items such as hiking boots, laptop, and trainers as well as normal clothes. But, what I love is that if u don't need the space, 3 pairs of compression straps can collapse it down as small as u need. The roll top closure system at the top is better than any drawstring or zip. The quad lock system...one word..life changing, it really does totally take the weight and pressure off the shoulders, something I always found after prolonged riding with a standard rucksack. Once it's fitted u don't have to loosen and adjust each time you wear it, it just fits. And u step into more like a parachute harness rather than trying to fold your bulky armoured arms through normal rucksack straps. Off of the bike, after filling the pack for a weekend away hiking, a long ride down to meet the mrs, I then dismounted and used it for a weekends hiking and even then it has just ticked all the right boxes, a little adjustment to fit my unarmoured body and it just felt...right. I have just ordered the small utility pouch as this will be a welcome addition. The R30 quality is simply outstanding, 10yr warranty, and it just feels solid. This pack alone has got me seriously considering the kriega soft luggage for my bike simply on quality and practicality. Great shop staff and great rucksack. If u are tempted...bits the bullet, it's worth every penny.
Fantastic bit of kit
I have been using the backpack for a few weeks now. When I first got it, it seemed very heavy and massive. It took a YouTube video to adjust it to my size and once I had it on, I couldn't feel the weight. It's very well distributed and the quad lock harness makes it really easy to put in and take it off. It also doesn't dig into your armpits, which I found with 'normal' backpacks. It is waterproof and so far, riding in torrential rain, the contents stayed nicely dry. The build quality is very good. The zips are a bit stiff at the moment but it doesn't prevent them opening or closing. I'd love other kriega backpacks to be waterproof like this one so I could have a full selection!
Expenisve? Not Really
Its certainly water PROOF! Tried and tested. Build quality is exceptional as expected and commanded by the price. The stitching is the first thing I homed in on and you can tell it will last and take a beating. The zips, like wise along with all the plastic buckles. The compression straps work a treat and ensure your kit stays stable and tight, leaving you to concentrate on the ride. It's the second Kriega piece of kit I have bought and wont use any other. As always SBS service is 2nd to none.
Quality and Comfort
The quality of construction is excetional and the fit and load distribtion is made perfect because of the easy adjustment to the harness. The totally waterproof main compartment was my main reason for this purchase but also that I can attach a 5 or 10 litre dry pack was another big decider.
Quality is what you pay for
This rucksack looks expensive on the outset but receiving it you certainly understand you get what you pay for. Quality second to none comfortable to wear all day and designed for bikers. Great customer service from sportsbikeshop.co.uk. Definitely recommend
I've previously bought the R25 from this site and used it for a couple of years now and it was a brilliant backpack and still is. I now commute more on the bike to work and had the spare cash to splash out on a bigger bag and decided to get the R30 and I've had no regrets. Main compartment is fully waterproof and seems a lot bigger than the main compartment of the 25 (although it's only 5litres more) the roll top idea is good and the two outer pockets are pretty big too but not waterproof so bear that in mind. The compressions straps work well and the quad lock system is still as good as ever. If you need a 30 litre pack for riding with, you won't beat this one.
Probably the best back pack you can buy
The R30 is definitely the best back pack I've ever used, its very well made and looks like it will last many years. The chest straps do an excellent job of keeping the weight off your shoulders even with heavier loads and the waterproofing is excellent. It is a bit expensive but you get what you pay for. I would buy one again.
This is a top quality item, 30L capacity is a nice size for just about anything, it has plenty room for everything you may need for a day out but also pulls tight for carrying only a small amount of stuff for the likes of going to work, the ideal rucksack for all uses, 100% waterproof inner liner which I've put to the test, riding in heavy rain for over an hour, the strap system is fantastic, easy to strap on but also distributes the weight evenly, you don't know you're wearing it, one of my best ever purchases, SBS 5 start too.
Kriega R30 Back Pack
I did a lot of research before I decided on the Kreiga R30 due to the price. There was only 1 negative review which was so minor I ignored it. I bought from SBS as the price was the lowest in the U.K. which included next day delivery. I have used the Kreiga R30 for the Scottish NC500 and there and back which was 2312 miles. The R30 was brilliant, it was so comfortable I didn't know I had it on, compared to my usual back pack it was a great buy and I wished I had invested in a R30 years ago. With typical Scottish weather the waterproofing was tested and passed with flying colours. I would recommend the R30.
Take the plunge
I was so undecided whether to drop this sort of money on a bag. So I finally took the plunge and I do not regret it one bit. The bag is amazing quality and the weight load is spread across your body equally. I no longer have a bad back when carrying heavy loads. The bag is very comfortable and easy to use with gloves on and you will be surprised how much stuff you can actually fit inside it. The styling is great too. completely water proof in rain. If you are looking for a bag to save your back and will last you a long time this is it. As usual super fast delivery from sportsbikeshop.
WHAT TO USE IF YOU NEED TO TRANSPORT WITH EASE
Kriega R30 - Brilliant, I could stop there but it would be rude not to add compact but yet Tardis like in terms of space to transport your clothes, personnel effects, laptop, gym kit, chain, disc lock I could go on and on. Quadlock harness fantastic once on you do not realise it is on your back no weight on your shoulders it is that good. Value for money without doubt, Kriega products are designed for motorcyclists by motorcyclists and feel as though they will last the 10years and beyond that Kriega provide a warranty term for. You may think once, twice to buy but you will not regret the purchase. Make that investment in yourself, live your life and invest in the best rucksack now by the R30. Oh and by the way Sportsibkeshop's service 1st class ordered 4.30pm Friday delivered 3.30pm Sunday, fantastic.
Very well made backpack have just got back from spending 4 days at Moto GP at Assen and got all my kit in there riding all the way there and back hardly noticed that I was wearing it .I would highly recommend this backpack it is a tad expensive but I think its worth it for the quality and comfort
Works just as described on the tin!
Was advised by a personal friend who does a lot of riding in the wet. It is not just the rain, but also the force of the wind which drives the rain into the material. Kriega R30 has a double layer which gives 100% protection. The outer skin on any motorcycle bag or rucksack needs to very resistant against abrasive ware. With my sports naked bike my previous bag got hammered by dirt and road grime. I have not noticed any with my Kriega.
The Only bag you need
I'm new to the kreiga game and was hesitant on the bag due to the price, I needed a bag for work , study and gym , and this bag accommodates it's all. Even though the price is high, if i lost or broke the bag I would 100% buy it again, having said that the build of the bag is amazing let's says iPhone of bags lol 10/10
