> The Kriega R20 motorcycle backpack has been designed specifically as an ‘active’ riding pack with our unique QUADLOC-lite harness system. The harness is angled away from underarms for total freedom of movement and once set, the pack is exceptionally convenient to use with none of the harness re-adjustment necessary on conventional harness systems.

> The size adjustable harness allows the backpack position to be moved up or down to produce the best possible fit. The Kriega R20 can be worn with or without a waist strap. The waist strap is not really necessary for street riding.

> Side access pocket with YKK water-resistant zip.

Kriega R20 Fitting Instructions

> The pack is supplied pre-set to level 2. Move to level 3 for XL fit and for XS fit move to level 1.

> Firstly, push the harness strap back into the pack, to release the harness-web tension.

> Shorten or lengthen harness by moving slider buckle on web (equal both sides).

> Pull harness strap back out of pack, to tension harness web.

> Put on pack and adjust fit as on a conventional harness. Do not over tighten - tidy loose ends under elastic loops. Once set, the harness do not need to be re-adjusted each time as the pack ergonomics allow the harness to open wide for arm access.


Increase capacity by 5 liters by adding a US-5 Drypack. US-5 is reversible - zip or mesh pocket (see US-5 link below).

Fitting instructions: attach 4 x Alloy Hooks from the Kriega US-5 to the 4 x web loops (that hold the compression strap clips in place) on the face of the R20 backpack and cinch down tight.


Increase capacity by 10 litres by adding a US-10 drypack (see US-10 link below).

Fitting instructions: attach 4 x Alloy Hooks from the Kriega US-10 to the 4 x web loops (that hold the compression strap clips in place) on the face of the R20 backpack and cinch down tight.

    durable and practical 5 star rating

    This pack fits perfectly and is well made and looks cool.

    Best Pack Ever 5 star rating

    I love this pack. I cannot imagine leaving my house without it. It looks cool as f*** and is super durable, keeps everything dry, and I hardly even notice I'm wearing it because it fits so perfectly. Also, the front eye clasp makes me feel like a navy seal or something equally as badass. Props. Anyone that rides should have one, and people who don't ride should also have one.

    extremely impressed - but not suprised! 5 star rating

    The R20 fit comfortably just over a shirt, the big surprise was how well it fit over my riding jacket. I'm 6'2 and an XL type of build.The cinch-down straps keep everything nice and tight with no movement on the ride - regardless how the bag is filled, but the best is how comfortable the bag is. You can barely feel it on your back. It's very versatile and I'm looking forward to to some great trips with my awesome bag.

    Thanks again, Kriega!

    This pack really is better! 5 star rating

    The R20 is a great pack! It is large enough to carry two 100 oz bladder but is small enough to barely be noticed when riding. I use mine primarily off road, the way the shoulder straps are configured allows the bag to distribute the weight from the top of your shoulders to your chest and back which is a much more comfortable distribution of weight, it also provides confidence that your pack will go the same direction as your body when your shifting your weight around.
    I have used the R20 since 2009 and have tried many other brands before, none that even come close to the durability and comfort. For those of you that wear a pack on a bike you can rest assured this is a quality piece that you probably wouldn't even mind paying a little more for once you've used it.

    Super pack 5 star rating

    Having purchased, and being impressed with the quality of several other Kreiga products, I went after the R20 to wear while riding the Ducati Hyper. Love the fit and function! Just right for my needs.

    Impressed 5 star rating

    I knew immediately that this bag is exactly what I needed for my 2004 Moto Guzzi Coppa Italia riding. Well constructed, feels good and fits with many of my riding jackets.. I plan on adding another back pack for a weekend trip too.

    A Purpose Built Rucksack 5 star rating

    I've never owned a backpack that would comfortably fit over a leather jacket so Kriega's product line intrigued me. I ordered the R20 since most of my riding is runabout stuff like running errands or finding any excuse for a short ride on a nice day. The R20 fits easily over my Vanson jacket and even better I was able to pack my folded up leather jacket inside the R20 when I reached my destination. (The R20 will not swallow a large Shoei helmet; not a big deal since I can lock my helmet onto my bike.) While riding, as other reviewers have noted, you hardly notice that you are wearing a backpack. The R20 is a great bag and just the right size for light riding.

    My go-to bag 5 star rating

    Just got the R20 to compliment my R15 and R25.
    R15 is great for the trails (foot/moto/bike) and the R25 is great for overnighters.
    The R20 fits perfectly right in between. I use it as my daily commuter bag. I can comfortably stuff a small jacket, a sack lunch, daily planner or other little nic-nacs like electronic devices/wallet/cables and cords.
    It fits my smaller torso much better than the R25, and the single-click attachment makes it getting it on and off my back easily and quickly. I expanded my storage options by adding the super-handy Kube.
    Like with all other Kriega products, build and workmanship rocks….along with design and function.

    almost feels like you don't have it on 4 star rating

    I didn't think I would feel the difference ,but right away it fit like a glove. I hope to someday get the US-5 or US-10 to add more space

    Great bag 5 star rating

    I've ridden with the bag a few times now and love it. The clasps are all easy to operate with gloves on and the straps aren't too tight to get the back on with a jacket.
    I've had a decent amount of weight in the bag and it was totally comfortable, almost none of the weight was on my shoulders and it didn't move around when I was leaning into turns.
    I hope to get some more Kriega bags in future!
