The R35 needs an initial set-up on purchase. From then on you just need to zip in and out. To set-up, please follow the fitting instructions below:
1 - Back off all 4 x alloy buckles. Lift & pull nylon-cord to release the friction in the buckles. then pull away from the harness, towards the pack body.
2 - Put on pack and zip up chest harness.
3 - Hold the chest harness in the desired position and then tighten the lower hip-wing alloy buckles until the wings grip on your torso.
4 - Adjust top alloy buckles if necessary. The top harness straps should not be tight, just a close fit.
5 - R35 pack is now ready... just zip in and out. If necessary adjust the lower 2 alloy buckles as the load changes.
Add 5-litre capacity by adding a US-5 drypack (see US-5 link below).
Fitting instructions: Thread the 2 x US-5 fitting straps through the square rings on the front of the R35
Add 10-litre capacity 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 Kriega R35 backpack and cinch down tight.

35 liters sounds a lot, and it is. This backpack has 1 huge room with a pocket for your 17" laptop (i tried mine). It has 2 useful pockets on top and inside the backpack, and 2 pockets in front at chest height that almost single handed made me buy this bag. The chest strap combined with the easy tighten and release system that this backpack has, which is patented so that it is almost exclusively with Kriega. I recommend getting the US-10 with it, as it expands it capacity to even further levels.

This pack is the perfect fit on and off the bike. The front pockets are great for the quick to reach items and a great place to stick my ipod. This is not a hydration pack, but I was able to attach a camelbak armorbak directly to mine using the buckles. Excellent service from Kreiga as well!!

I was on the fence about whether to get the R30 or the R35. At the zero hour I chose the R35 and I'm glad I did. I needed to carry gym clothes and shoes, a weight belt, gloves and a insulated lunch box. It all fit and I can barely tell it's back there. The front pockets provide axcess to I.D., phone, cash, etc. Great purchase.

I bought this backpack and the the US-10L dry-bag. Both are super high quality and extremely durable. After 10000km they still look like new. With normal backpacks it gets uncomfortable pretty fast. This one is really made to distribute the weight better. There's also a practical pocket in the front where you can put your wallet that is easily accessible when you need to fuel your bike.
Worth every penny. Wish all companies put this much thought in their products!

I have only used this bag for only a month or so but can tell i have brought a quality bag. i have many other bags which just dnt seem to compare to this. i thought 109 was a large amount of money to spend on a bag but once you have it you cant fault it. my issue was bags not being waterproof and just not being comfortable and with large soft padding it is very confortable. the bag doesnt look huge when on your back and can be worn just as an everyday rucksuck. also i tihnk it looks very sleek and cool looking bag. i havent bought te waterproof linner and am tihnking of this as a future purchase but so far contents of what has been in the bag has been completely safe and dry. Another advantage the rucksack has is the harness which makes the bag very secure around your chest. ive always wanted a rucksack which feels secure and am able to put some valubles In this area of the bag. I will be buying more kriega from now on already looking at bike packs. A seriously genuine rucksack.

About 5 or 6 years ago I bought a "Krug" R35 rucksack at the GMEX show at Manchester. Previously to the purchase of the R35 I had always had crap rucksacks which always fell apart, didn't hold the kit, always leaked and were downright uncomfortable for the odd 30 years I had persevered with them. Since buying the R35 I've added an R3 bumbag - yes you've guessed - because all the other bum bags I've had have also fallen apart because they were crap. Anyway, the reason for the email is just to put pen to paper as it were and let you know what a good bit of kit the R35 is. It's been dragged here there and everywhere, done several laps of the Netherlands/Belgium/France, been soaked for endless hours at a time. It's now getting on for 5-6 years old and people still ask me today if I've just bought a new rucksack. Which must be a good testament to it as it still manages to look new. It does exactly what it's supposed to and on several occasions held a bit more than it was designed to, and all without any damage, wear or discomfort. As for the R3 - well I haven't had it long enough but it's doing the business as it were already!
Good on ya folks. You keep making it, I'll keep using it!
