Kriega R3 Waistpack
Customer Product Reviews
Now don't ride without it
I purchase this after riding with a friend of mine who had something similar from another brand. I chose Kriega as have the US-30 Dry bag and am now sold on the quality of Kriega, this is no exception. Initially thinking its expensive for a "bum bag", it is so much more than that. Its fits an iPhone 8 plus, card holder wallet, spare ear plugs, visor spray and cloth, sunglasses and even a 330ml bottle in the main compartment, there is another smaller zipped compartment where I stash loose change but could also fit in a wallet, There is a 3rd compartment which could store Passport and other documents needed for longer journeys, I find this as useful for my local 1 hour blast as it would be as additional luggage for a longer trip. It allows me to keep all the important stuff on my person without having to fill all my pockets, which I find a hassle and uncomfortable since I ride in riding jeans and leather jacket. You dont notice its there, even when riding. Usual Kriega quality, I now never ride without it. Great service from SB as well.
amazing quality Great product and service
was concerned it might not be enough space. But its actually perfect. I can fit wallet, phone, sunglasses. Bottle of drink snacks etc. Quality is amazing worth the money for sure. Service from sportbikeshop is amazing as always.
Quality waistpack and Very comfortable
Well made as always with kriega products and so comfortable you can't tell your wearing it. It's very easy to adjust so you can spin it around and access each pocket without taking the bag off. I ride with a pillion too and the bag is small enough that it doesn't get in the way
Should have got one sooner!
I've used Kriega bags for years now so decided to treat myself to this little one and it's absolutely brilliant. Same superior quality as expected with Kriega products and deceivingly spacious! Customer service from Sportsbike shop was fantastic as always. I needed it pronto and they got it to me in time and when I spoke to a member of their team regarding details of the bag they answered everything for me! :) Happy Customer once again! Beth
This is a very well made Waist pack. its very comfortable to wear due to my air vest I have it on my right side. There is more than enough room for all your bits you might want to carry in it. It would have been nice to know the waist size before hand. service from sportsbikeshop was fantastic as ever quick and hassle free.
A really good quality waist bag. Handy to fit in wallet, phone passport key and sunnys if like me you dont like all your pockets stuffed and also like me every time you need something have to pat search yourself to find it. Not really big enough to fit in anything other than the above. Definitely waterproof, this has been tested a few times and 100% held up. My only small complaint is that the roll mechanism is quite bulky and a different / more slimline roll top would allow for more storage.
Great storage item
Great product to go with my leathers, it's easy to use and is comfy so I don't really notice it. Capacity can be expanded slightly when the straps are adjusted but it fits my mobile, wallet, keys. Quality wise it feels well made and is water proof.
In line with other reviewers, I can say this is a really good buy. Really well made and so, so useful. If you want a method of carrying necessary items without having a backpack, this should be considered the answer to the problem. SBS, as usual, are tops!!!
Worth every penny - fantastic piece of kit!
I was initially sceptical about whether I really needed a bum back - or 'waist pack' as us bikers like to call them - at all: after all, I've got pockets in all my biking gear! I was particuarly sceptical that the Kriega waist packs were worth over double the price of any other waistpack I could find. However, my intial scepticism has been proved to be VERY wrong! I bumped into a guy wearing a Kriega R3 waistpack at Box Hill: It looked brand new but turned out to be 6 years old - they wear that well despite sun and rain. The guy wearing it was a massive fan and said that it was the best thing that he had bought for his bike. So, based on that and the lack of space in the pockets in my summer biking gear I bought one from Sportsbikeshop.com and I am EXTREMELY pleased that I did! Firstly, it is worth every penny: The build quality is second to none. It's as if Kriega have started with the design brief: 'Forget what it costs to make, lets just make sure it is virtaually indesctructable, built with bikers in mind, and with the best quality materials available' - and that is exactly what they have done. The Kriega R3 is simply built to withstand whatever it is put through - for ever (or near enough forever anyway!). My reservations about whether I really needed it were proved wrong the first time that I wore it: Yes I DO need it - no more bulging pockets, no more struggling to get everything in to my jacket and trousers, and no more struggling to get my keys, phone, money, whatever out of my pockets. Whoever designed this clearly is the same person who designed Doctor Who's TARDIS: It does not look that big, and does not feel big when it is on, but the carrying capacity is deceptively generous: I can comfortably get my large smartphone, box for ear protectors, a pack of tissues, visor cleaner and wallet in the middle compartment. My keys and a small pouch containing change go in the front pocket and the pocket inside the front flap stays empty as I have simply run out of stuff to put into it. Because of how it sits on my waist there is no chance of it scratching the tank either - well thought out Kriega! Easy to adjust when on, a doddle to take off, there are simply no design faults with this full stop. All I can say to anyone who rides a bike is to buy one - this is the one piece of non safety related kit that is essential. Made and designed in Britain too apparently. I am so impressed I am now looking to buy a Kriega R25 backpack as well.
Kriega .... quality
1st purchase of Kriega, won't be the last. High quality kit that works, fits well, feels quality, looking forward to next tour with it to try it out at a toll booth! Normal sportsbikeshop service, easy to order, swift delivery, great comms , 5 stars for them as well.
Well designed product
The quality of this product is excellent and well thought out. The quick release works without fail but also keeps the pack tight when fastened. There is enough space for my wallet, phone, disc lock, helmet cleaning cloths and keys with space for more items. When riding I don't notice I'm wearing it. This has the real benefit of not having to ride with panniers. Delivery was next day...as always excellent service from SPORTSBIKESHOP.
