> 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.
> Main compartment with YKK water-resistant zip.
> Side access pocket with YKK water-resistant zip.
> Internal hydration sleeve with compression.
> Internal zipped mesh-pocket.
> Optional harness pocket (see Kube Pocket).
> Optional Forcefield back protector insert, size Medium (see Back Protector thumbnail below).

I purchased a Kriega R20 pack after numerous friend had raved about theirs. I even tried a friends out, as I wanted to see how it would integrate with my Leatt neck collar. It's perfect btw. It carries everything I need for a day ride. The optional hydration bladder is the best I have used. I highly recommend getting the optional Kube that attaches to the front straps. It is a great place to store your phone/wallet for easy access. Kriega packs stay in place and you hardly know they are there. The harness system design is the best!
I recently took a guided trip to Argentina and rented BMW R1200GS. It happens to strap perfectly to the factory rear rack in seconds. It was nice to not have a back on my back on the hot days, but I could easily remove and use it when off the bike.
When getting back from my South America trip, I noticed one of the internal straps had torn from its attachment point. I sent an email with a picture to Kriega. They replaced the pack immediately. I couldn't ask for better customer service.

All of my previous packs aggravated my left shoulder, eventually putting my arm to sleep and shoulder to throb. None of that nonsense with this pack. Plenty of room inside with the water bladder full. Highly recommend.

I wanted a backpack that felt like it was part of my body when wearing it. This thing is extremely fitting and comfortable (as a man), plus it's built to last! It was important that my laptop fit and the R20 is just right. A little pricy like other reviews say, but you do get what you're paying for. I've added on a couple extras: US-5 and the Kube pocket, making the whole system quite versatile. Love it!

Great Backpack - bought it after much research. Costly, but you get what you pay for!

I love Kriega products, have some of the tail packs and they're great all around. Picked up this backpack awhile back and unfortunately it just isn't a good fit for the female body. The front harness is in an uncomfortable position for the *ahem* chest area and any well-endowed woman is gonna find it awkward. I eventually gave up clipping it, and just ride around with it unclipped which isn't exactly ideal. Aside from this, it's a great backpack but I think I'll end up getting rid of it for something more friendly fitting to chicks. Ladies, look elsewhere for a backpack.

I'm short 5'5" and the R25 was a bit too long as it would ride on the passenger seat. The R20 stays about 2 or 3" above the rear seat of my Honda Rebel. The single clip on the front is simple and secure. Holds a ten pound sack of potatoes, or a gallon of milk, a bunch of bananas and other stuff. Perfect!

The R20 backpack is extremely well made. Rugged, and it the most comfortable fitting pack I've ever worn. However, the cross-front connector and harness are not designed for the ladies. The zippers are solid, the stitching is strong, the materials are well made of nylon, mesh, with reinforced edges.
I just wish it came with a removable inner pocket to hold additional smaller items.

I looked at the R20 for quite a while. The backpack lives up to and exceeds my expectations. The quadlock system is great a keeps the weight off of you back. Kriega's quality and support is the best.

I ordered this as a suplement for adventure biking and my pannier bags. I was also going to be using it for commuting as well, so it needed to work easily. It does all that, and more. My biggest joy was being able to get it fitted over my riding jacket in less than 5 minutes. As a bigger guy, I had doubts as I had purchased and sent back a number of bags already. However, this one went on and I was able to get it buckled and fit. While riding, I barely even notice it. I have full range of motion with my arms and there is not pulling or stretching or restriction from the shoulder straps at all. This is a bag I not only recommend to others, but have flat out told people to get, skipping all the trial and error I had to go though.
