Kriega R15 Back Pack
Customer Product Reviews
Bought this rucksack for a little (but not too much) carrying capacity for a trip to the Dordogne. Over 1500 miles of traveling and I barely noticed the bag was there - extremely comfortable... only downside was the fact its not waterproof (which I knew at time of purchase) and would recommend using a liner if you need to protect any of your items against water (my maps have now dried out!).
Ideal for work
They are expensive but in my view worth it. This fits my Surface Pro 4 and lunchbox. Very snug fit, does not move around and importantly does make you feel like a turtle with your house on your back. It's waterproof as well! Cost twice as much as my last rucksack but there again it's twice as good.
Not the cheapest backpack but you wont be disappointed. Having used on my daily commute for the last few months I can say it is really well designed, made and comfortable to wear. The capacity is quite small but is just big enough for a change of shirt & trousers and my sandwiches. If you need more then go for the next size up.
A great day bag
A great well made bag for everyday use. I call it a day bag, though with a top box and or panniers , then it could be an extra storage space. You don't know it's on, compared with any other bag I have used. It's pretty stiff, so takes a little wearing in. Been waiting awhile to buy one, as they are not cheap. But worth every penny. Easy to get on and off, and fine to wear if you are walking about, picking up bits and pieces. Haven't tried it in the rain yet, so can't say about how water proof it is.
I was dubious at first thinking this may be either to small or to big. But it is a great bag, much more usable space than I imagined, build quality as with all Kriega products I have bought is excellent, service from Sportsbikeshop was good as usual. My only gripe would be I would have liked it to be a bit more waterproof in the materials, although I have had no ingress so far, but it is summer. All round I would suggest to buy it.
Excellent back pack from Kriega, this is my second and would definitely recommend, very easy to put on and take off, additional attachable pocket makes this extremely user friendly and organised, very happy with this product, well done Kriega, customer service met my expectations from Sportsbikeshop, as they are highly competitive retailer for bikers alike.
Buy once buy quality
I decided to buy Kriega because I have other Kriega products and they are just quality so for me Kriega every time. The products are expensive. Once you have adjusted the straps and harness you forget you are wearing it allowing you to enjoy the ride. The R15 is perfect for a day out. I fit my water bladder, a set of waterproofs with plenty room left if you choose. You can fit a US5 or US10 for extra space but for me its great for a day out with your mates. I only put soft items in the bag for safety reasons which is why I bought the smaller of the range. The rucksack is waterproof and looks like it will last for years. If your new to Kreiga buy one you do get what you pay for.
Excellent rucksack for small loads. The materials, zips and straps are extremely good quality. I can easily fit a tablet, change of clothes and lunch in it with room to spare. However, the straps are clearly designed/positioned for a man. Ample-chested ladies might want to consider other choices! That said, it is snug, feels like an extra layer of protection and it is barely noticeable when riding.
Quality is superb from seams to zips it screams quality. Materials are strong and purposeful. Fit wise I don't know I'm wearing it. This is probably the best sack I've bought for bike use. There are much cheaper sacks on the market but when you are buying your second or third replacement this one will still be going strong. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. This is totally true with this sack. From opening the bag it came in the first impression was quality. If your thinking of skimping don't, buy this one and you will not have to buy again.
This looks and feels like a quality product. Zips have waterproofed seams and harness is really well made. Once adjusted the backpack fits perfectly and I hardly notice it when on the bike. It is also a good size and weight to use as a day hiking pack. Capacity is reasonable for its size - its shape and the stiff back panel means stuff has to be packed in carefully to make full use of the capacity, but it expands to hold more than you might think.
As with all Kriega products this is of top quality and finished to a high standard. The 15ltr capacity is small but ideal for most day rides and once fitted correctly sits perfectly on the back and the body, fitting and adjustment really is easy and intuitive. Perhaps considered unnecessary by some but I also purchased the small back protector and am convinced it provides a stabilizing frame like base within the pack. I definitely recommend this product and the excellent service of Sportsbikeshop.
Love this backpack
Excellent quality as usual from Kriega, great for commuting or day trips and you can add dry bags for additional storage. Take some time to properly adjust the straps and it will be comfortable even on long rides. The quadlock system is easy to use with or without gear on.
