Kriega R15

SKU: 9195

Availability: In stock


Product Description


Almost exactly the same as the R20, just a bit smaller. And…though comfortable and suitable for all riders, it’s perfect for those under 5.5'. 915 cubic inches of space reside in the main compartment, featuring an internal mesh zipped pocket—all of which is kept secure with a YKK water resistant zip. 3M reflective areas along back and front, and a side access pocket with YKK water-resistant zip makes quick access a snap instead of having to dig through all of your stuff. The internal reservoir pocket with compression straps fits a 3 liter hydration insert (not included). The overall short back length is designed for wearing comfortably along with a hip pack. Add over 300 cubic inches of space by attaching a US-5, or over 600 cubic inches with a US-10. 16.5"×13"×7".

OK OverallReview by Dom
Here's what I like about the R15:
the shorter length keeps it up higher on my back, so it doesn't rest on the seat or touch my tail bag when I sit up. Also, I like how the bottom is slightly tapered. As far as the attachment system and whether it works better for motorcycle use, I'm not sure. I haven't noticed a significant difference. The plastic main buckle doesn't bother me; seems sturdy enough for my use. Overall, its OK, but I could get by with a regular pack of the same size and save some $. (Posted on 7/30/14)
Lives up to its claim as a motorcycle specific productReview by Rocky
After using the R15 for two weeks I can definitively say that even fully loaded, the stress on my shoulders while riding was next to nothing compared to a standard backpack. The stress points from everyday backpacks while riding have always been a gripe of mine which is why I've generally gravitated to sling-type packs, courier style bags, and tank bags when taking trips or hauling gear on my bike. While the R15 is a down-sized alternative to the larger products in the Kriega lineup, it is surprisingly capable as an overnighter or commuter , holding the right amount of gear in spite of its compact appearance. My only complaint, as noted by others as well, is that the plastic front chest clasp seems a bit flimsy in its construction and the rest of the compression slide buckle hardware on the pack could also have been made of sturdier/more durable feeling plastic. Given its premium price as a motorcycle specific product, I would have preferred a metallic (or at least heavy duty plastic) compression slide buckle on the front chest strap, as this would eliminate any questions about failure of the chest strap clasp at an inopportune moment during a ride. Overall, a well thought out product which would be absolutely perfect if only the slide buckle hardware and chest strap clasp were made of a bit more durable looking/feeling material. If Kriega is listening, I'm volunteering to be a beta tester for any of the product improvements I've suggested. {grin} I really like this product for its intended purpose, just please upgrade the buckle/clasp hardware on future models and you'll have me as a return customer for additional Kriega products. Ride safe and keep the rubber side down. (Posted on 11/29/11)
Perfectly designedReview by Rocket J Squirrel
This is already one of my favorite pieces of gear. It forms to your body and fits snugly. No flopping around or bumping against the seat. The attachment system is brilliant, and is the only one I've tried that easily slips over armor without getting snagged. Before I purchased the pack I read somewhere that it feels like an extension of your body, and that's exactly right. (Posted on 8/29/11)
