Fitting

The R15 backpack is supplied pre-set to level 2. For XL fit move to level 3 and level 1 for XS fit.

 Step 1: push the harness strap back into the pack to release the harness-web tension

 Step 2: Shorten or lengthen harness by moving slider on web - equal both sides

 Step 4:Pull harness strap back out of pack to re-tension harness web

Step 5: Put on pack and adjust fit as on a conventional harness. Do not over tighten. Tidy loose web-ends under elastic loops. Once set, the harness straps do not need to be readjusted each time, as the pack ergonomics allow the harness to open for wide access.

    Awesome backpack! 5 star rating

    I wear this every time we head out. It's so comfortable, it feels like it's not there. I have the optional water bladder in there along with some extra clothing and food. Perfect for hours of riding and comfort. Bill Eakins - Butler Maps

    Very Good Product/Excellent Service 4 star rating

    This is an excellent pack. I used it on various very difficult offroad trips on my KTM 500 in Colorado this summer. The fit is very good. It is also smartly designed and a good looking pack. During one ride I lost my front wheel on a wet root and when down pretty hard at 15 - 20mph. One of the shoulder straps tore away from the body of the pack where it attaches at the bottom. I contacted Kriega. They were professional and accomodating. I emailed them photos and Kriega immediately replaced the R15. Great service. I would not hesitate buying other of their products. They stand behind their products and treat their customers with respect.

    Best back pack on the market 5 star rating

    The Kriega R15 is by far the most comfortable off road back pack I have ever experienced. I ordered it with the 3 liter reservoir and found it less cumbersome than any off the competitors hydration units. I rode 100 miles this past weekend in 80-90 degree weather out in the desert, and the water stayed cold the entire day. I drank all 3 liters in about a 6 hour period. The backpack easily held everything I would normally put in a fanny pack, plus it will hold additional layers of clothing for the colder weather days.

    form fitting 5 star rating

    I used my R15 on a week trip to the Arizona strip area of the Grand Canyon. I used the pack on top of body armour and hardly knew the pack was on! The fit is second to none especially with the ergo design of the shoulder straps and heavy duty Quad-loc closure. For a longer trip I cant wait to try the larger R-25 and look forward to trying more of the great Kreiga products.

    easy on the shoulders 5 star rating

    Love my R15! I usually hate riding with things on my back, but because the weight is distributed around the bottom and not on my shoulders, I'll have no problem taking this on my upcoming 4k Newfoundland trip. Only improvement I would suggest is making it more reflective.. the more the better..

    Note from Kriega: all the grey areas and logos on the pack are the highest grade, super-reflective 3M Scotchlite material!

    I dont know its there! 5 star rating

    This pack has solved my problem of comfortably carrying the tools I need with hydration without tiring me out!

    Its like a seatbelt 5 star rating

    Can't ride without now. Its like driving a car without a seat belt... silly I know. Straps are perfect for clipping my iPoad Shuffle onto!

    Almost not there 5 star rating

    I use this pack daily, mostly for carrying a laptop. The compressions straps can make the bag so small I can sit and eat at stops and still not remember I'm wearing it. Great when someone says "I wish we could review xxx" and you remember you have it and pull the laptop out. Very strong, well made, and very water resistant (though not waterproof). Brilliant.

    Like it's not really there 5 star rating

    This rucksack is so unobtrusive that I managed to ride 40 miles before I realised that I had left it behind. Kriega should issue key fobs with this bag, as a reminder to check before starting up!

    Real class!! 5 star rating

    Although normally not so quick with unrequested e-mails, I feel I must join the chorus of praise of the Kriega rucksacks. I have got the R15 now for 2 years, and I hardly ride without any more. Before I hated having rucksacks while riding my bike (awkward, restrictive and uncomfortable), but really, I do not feel it, except if I don't take it with me: then I have this vague feeling that I forgot something. Well and smartly designed, and very good quality. Real class!!
