Step 2: Shorten or lengthen harness by moving slider on web - equal both sides.
Step 3: Pull harness strap back out of pack to tension harness-web.
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.

Fitting instructions: thread US-5 fitting straps through the square rings on the front of the R30. Reversible: zip pocket or mesh pocket on the front.
Increase capacity by 10 litres by adding a US-10 drypack (See US-10 link below).

Since I sold my car recently and my bike is being transported to the city I recently moved, I’m using my R30 for plenty of other stuff besides wearing it exclusively while I ride.
For example I came real handy yesterday when I had to do some groceries and filled it up all the way to the top, and even though it was heavy it distributed weight very efficiently and it made my walk from the store to my apartment less stressful & more manageable. Same scenario when I had to go to the Laundromat (in my bike XD) the other day filled it up with my clothes all the way to the top.
So far the backpack feels rugged, comfortable and dependable I have no complaints whatsoever, weight distribution is awesome it didn’t tire my shoulders & lower back in either of the scenarios described above & adjusting the straps is super easy.
I have one suggestion though, if the side straps (the ones used for opening or closing the bag) could be adjustable it would help opening and closing the bag more easy specially in scenarios like I described above.
Best backpack i have ever had.

I just wanted to follow up and say that after a year, I'm still stoked by how great this pack is. Not once have I wished I had bought something else. When a product is this good you just know it. I can also vouch for how much stuff you jam in this bag. I've had five days worth of clothes, toiletries, laptop, and a projector slammed into the R30 that had the US10 attached, and while it was heavy, it didn't cause any undue strain or hamper my ride. I think a R25 is next up for me for those times I don't need to haul a laptop around. Thanks again Kriega for taking care of us riders.

I have been using this R30 pack for several weeks now, in dry and wet weather.
1. Roomy, holds a lot of stuff
2. Once on, does not restrict arm movement; feels well proportioned and balanced irrespective of load
3. Visible at night (reflective strips) but could always use more
4. 'dangling straps' kept to a minimum (great!)
5. Waterproof thus far
1. For me, hard to move the adjustment straps (reach back) when on. When fully loaded, these do need to change a bit
1. When used without leather gear (walking around without the bike), fit is awkward
2. Would be nice if the manufacturer would include a place inside the pack for application of name/identification information (vs. writing on the waterproof pad, which wears quickly)
3. The side roll-down fasteners are not adjustable, so if roll-top filled you cannot strap sides down. Problem when carrying technical drawings or long items
4. Fantastic fit/finish - absolutely no complaints with how it was built (and I am a demanding consumer)
1. Commute 60-100 miles a day, rain or shine
2. Carry main pack (regularly); lunch, PC, notebooks, gym gear, extra gloves/gear depending on weather - room to spare
3. Carry pockets (regularly); tech support stuff (charging cords, safety glasses, etc), pens, pencils, spare change, extra tools - room to spare
Thank you Kriega, great product

I need a bag that I can carry with me easily to work and around town daily, and I didn't feel comfortable leaving my US30(bike bag) on the bike at all times, and I found I was constantly looking back to make sure it was still on, even though it was tied very tight it would still wiggle around.
Anyway, I was debating between the R25 and R30, and I'm very glad I spent the extra money and got those extra 5 liters. Here is a pic of everything put into the bag that I carry daily(the bag weighs in at 24lbs with all this):
Here are the contents listed out in case the picture doesn't work:
1 pair size 12 running shoes
1 pair running shorts
1 pair ankle socks
1 extra large plush towel
1 camie blouse
1 pair camie trousers
1 pair size 12 combat boots
1 24oz coffee mug
1 46oz/1.3L bottle
1 thick paperback book
1 stick deodorant
1 can hair putty
1 18oz bottle of shower gel
All this and I still had plenty of room in the front pouches, and a little more in the main compartment. The weight is felt, but it's on my hips and chest, not on my shoulders, so it is very manageable.
Bottom line: I wish I would have bought the R30 before my US30, but hey, now I've gone tons of space for a road trip!

I especially like the harness system. Feels super secure, actually makes me feel all special-ops haha. Was a bit confusing adjusting the dots on the shoulder straps (no instructions). But once I got it dialed in to the smallest setting, fits great (5'6", 160lbs). I actually never felt a pack that feels like this before. No fatigue while riding. And the part that touches my back allows for airflow and stays cool...no sweaty back marks on my shirt.
Anyway, what else can I say that hasn't already been said: waterproof for toting books and laptop to school, good capacity, solid build quality. Also, great service and reponse to questions; i.e. don't hesitate to call them with questions. My friend wants to get one too after seeing mine, which must be a good sign. Highly recommend the Kriega R30 for your riding needs.

There is clearly a lot of thought put into the bag, everything from waterproof, padding, and position of the bag on the chest rather then the shoulders. I'm currently stationed in Okinawa, Japan, where it rains every other day. Everything stays dry in the main compartment. Bag still looks new, just like the day I bought it several months ago. My bike is my only means of transportation on the island.
Things I might consider adding on to the bag is more reflectivity. Being in the military, we always have to wear the power ranger vests. Not cool. If the bag had some more reflective material(not over doing it of coarse) maybe we wouldn't have to wear the vests anymore. Another thing to consider, rather then have the main compartment waterproof, make the entire bag waterproof if at all possible. The water resistant outer compartments are water resistant, but it does get a little damp in there. Other then that, no complaints. I would recommend this bag to anyone.

Thank you so much for your awesome customer service. I purchased the R30, US10 and the Kube Pocket. The R30 fits well and definitely holds all my gear. The difference in comfort from my old pack to the R30 is staggering and can’t be fully appreciated until the pack is loaded up and tried on. My shoulders feel no more weight and the harness system keeps the pack from shifting around. I’ll be singing Kriega’s benefits to as many riders as I can. Great product!!

Inclement weather and autobahn validated backpack. Nothing better, nothing more comfortable. If you want more comfort, ride without a backpack. If you want a solid, sturdy, completely waterproof pack that might also save your spine in an impact :-) then this is your only real option.

Super comfy, big enough for all my gear and totally waterproof, great for toting my laptop around. A worthy investment.

I regularly commute 80 miles one way with a 15" laptop, a HP portable printer, files, and a carefully packed sportcoat. In the additional packs, i have my rainsuit, gloves, sundry items i carry.
It performs admirably as a well as a grocery bag. SInce it is waterproof, i will often head out, grab beer and a bag of ice and I am good to go. A 5lb bag of Ice, a tall sixpack, and two champagne bottles are about the limit unless you break open the Ice bag.
