> The Kriega R25 motorcycle backpack has a quick release QUADLOC harness, which is our own tried and tested system, unique to the backpack industry.

> The Kriega harness is an innovative & extremely efficient load-carrying system designed for motorcycle riders and is the secret behind what many consider to be the best motorcycle backpacks in the world.

> The unique Kriega 4-point harness places the load on chest & hips, which creates excellent balance and totally removes the neck and shoulder discomfort associated with other types of motorcycle backpacks.

> Ergonomically designed with no arm restriction for long distance comfort, it is released with the push of two buttons (which can be operated with gloves on) also opens extremely wide, so no more fighting your way into your backpack - even when wearing bulky protective motorcycle clothing.

> Once fitted, the Kriega R25 hardly ever needs adjusting. And when it does it takes no more than a few seconds and can be performed without removing the backpack or your gloves.

Fitting Instructions

The Kriega R25 motorcycle backpack is supplied pre-adjusted to level-2 on the harness straps. This harness position will fit the majority of riders. Adjust to level 1 for XS and level 3 for XL fit.

Step 1: Firstly push the uppermost harness strap back into the pack, or pull the loose end out, to release the harness-web tension.

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

Step 3: Pull harness strap back out of pack, or slide it back in, to tension harness-web.

Step 4: Put on pack and fasten front 2 x harness buckles. Adjust alloy buckles on hip wings by lifting and pulling the nylon cord. Tighten alloy buckles so the wings grip the sides of your torso. The top harness straps should not be a close fit, but not too tight.


Increase capacity by 5 liters by adding a US-5 drypack. Reversible zip or mesh pocket (see US-5 link below)

Fitting instructions:Hook the 4 x Alloy Hooks from the US-5 into the web loops on the face of the R25.


Increase capacity by 10 liters by adding a Kriega US-10 Drypack (see US-10 link below)

Fitting instructions: Attach the 4 x Alloy Hooks from your Kriega US-10 to the 4 x webbing loops on the sides of the Kriega R25 and cinch down tight.

Kube Pocket

Optional 0.5-liter harness pocket, which attaches easily to the upper harness of the Kriega R25 and is ideal for storing smaller items that you require quick access to (cell phone, cash, papers etc). YKK water-resistant zip and 3M Scotchlite reflective print (see Kube pocket link below)


Optional 3-liter Hydrapak reservoir. Fits in sleeve at back of main compartment (supported at top by VELCRO® brand touch fastener loop, which can be threaded through the reservoir 'slide' closure) with tube routed out through the covered duct, centrally located in top of main outer shell. Drink tube attached to harness with VELCRO® brand touch fastener Tube Locator v2 component included with the Kriega 3L Hydrapak hydration system (see 3L Hydrapak for more info).

    Great for the bike 5 star rating

    Just the right size for the bike. Comfortable and easy to use the side adjustments while wearing. Large clips and zippers make it easy to use with gloves on.

    Excellent Backpack 5 star rating

    I have had my R25 for about a year now and have used it for everything from overnight trips to 5 day vacations. Holds a ton of stuff if you pack it right. It's extremely comfortable, I've never felt tired from having it on even after 500+ mile rides.

    Extremely Comfortable 5 star rating

    I just received my R25 as a gift this Christmas. I have been using it everyday, to carry my things. This is the best backpack. Extremely comfortable, looks sharp and has a lot of room. It's very cold in Michigan right now and we have some snow. I'm excited to get to use my Kriega in a few months while riding my bike. Thank you husband, for this fantastic gift.

    Great Commuter Pack 5 star rating

    I have used this pack for the past 3+ years and one thing this pack is comfortable and easy to put on and take off. It holds a lot of stuff. Kriega also stands behind their products as this was a replacement due to a warranty issue. You simply cannot go wrong with this pack.

    Best Backpack Out There 5 star rating

    The Kriega R25 back pack is of the same high quality as their R3 waist pack and I suspect all of their products. The design is excellent and the materials of construction are are very high quality and exceptionally durable. I expect to have these packs for years to come. I've always found when I buy quality, I'm never disappointed. Kriega is quality.

    Top of The Line 5 star rating

    I have at least a dozen bags and packs. This pack was recommended to me by a friend. Can run with it on, cycle, hike, hunt-anything- and it is as if it is not there. The quality is better than any of my other bags or packs and they are all the supposed "best" - had an issue with it and the customer service is from "the days of old" - immediate response, immediate replacement, professional, courteous - and I mean IMMEDIATE. Best investment I have made in gear, would recommend to anyone. Thank you for a top of the line product at a reasonable price and for being honest in every aspect of business (and actually cool to talk to).

    Excellent and as advertised 5 star rating

    The R25 is an extremely well made bag with heavy material and rugged zippers. The straps are very adjustable, making it easy to switch between different jackets, or no jacket. The front clips keep the shoulder straps secure, and and are easy to buckle/unbuckle with gloves. The capacity is expandable by adjusting the side straps. Overall an excellent bag.

    The bag I was looking for. 5 star rating

    Solid bag and feels great on the bike. Dual chest straps make it fit snug without relying on it just being tight to your body so you don't feel it when riding. I ride with an Aerostitch suit and the adjustments open up nicely. Clips are good with gloves. A well design bag for bikers!

    Best Bag I Have Purchased 5 star rating

    Nice bag can put what ever I need for work and more in this bag. Berry comfortable

    Solid pack on and off the bike 5 star rating

    I have the R25 with bladder and Kube. I use the latter for my phone and hydration is key to all activities, to combine this with a pack that is comfortable on and off the bike is perfect. Great product, and great support.
