> 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'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.

Recently I bought a R20 backpack and I'm more than happy with the product and the high quality of it plus the service from this store.

Have had many backpacks over the years, The R20 is the last bag ill ever buy !! The quality and workmanship is top notch !! The ergonomics and ease of adjustment make this bag so user friendly....You almost don't even feel it when its loaded and you're riding! The sternum buckle and waist straps keep it in place without rider compromise !!! Again well worth the $$$$$$$$$$$$

I can't afford to buy cheap. I have been riding regularly to work for the past 10 years on sport bikes. I have had many non motorcycle backpacks. All of them different but, none of them perfect. All of them did not fit my body correctly and would not hold contents properly. I put buying my first Kriega backpack off too long. I now realize the money I have wasted buying cheap. Others said they could not tell it was on when riding. I did not understand how this could be true when reading it but, it is. This is a well designed product. Well worth the money. The only thing I was worried about before ordering was fitting my work laptop in it. I could not get good info from the website about this but took a chance. I have a large laptop and it fits well. Relieved!
This will not be my last Kriega product.

Love my R20. I can't even feel that I am carrying a backpack on my back. No matter I much I have it stuffed. I can carry gym clothes, sneakers, and even my tablet. Holds enough gear for an overnight run and toiletries. I also picked up the Kube as an accessory. That makes paying for gas very easy, as I now don't have to take the backpack off to get my wallet. The quality is what you expect from Kriega! I'm very happy with my purchase.

After listening to friends rave about this pack, the motorcycle press rave about the pack, and getting another sport bike I thought I better obtain one. The R20 holds more than it looks like it should, is quite comfortable, and basically disappears on my back when I ride. I can't see any areas to improve upon, it is that good. Much more functional than those silly courier bags (I have two) that are all over the market. Much more stylish as well -- if that matters to you.
