I use the US-5 as a tool and lock carrier for my Hypermotard on days I am going further than the daily commute. I attach the straps to the sub-frame under the seat and hook the bag to them and off I go. The mesh bottom keeps the pack in place and it looks great too. On days I don't need it, I just leave the straps in place and fold them under the seat to hide them. After using this pack for a week or so, I have now bought a US-10 and US-20 for weekend trips to compliment my R15 backpack. There are a myriad of ways to combine these pack for whatever volume of storage you need.

I bought the US5 as an addition to my R25 and it works great. I use it to hold items that I don't wont to get wet such as my tablet and cellphone powersupply. It would be nice in the future if Kriega designed it to be able to be attached and detached a little easier to the R-series packs. Otherwise it is perfect.

I bought two US-5 bags to use as tool bags on my 800gs. I bolted them up to the crash bar. They work great! They are very well made and have durable straps. Kriega makes top shelf products .

I have not been able to test this bag yet, to much cold and snow. It is the right size I needed to hold my tire pump and a spare tube and a few cables and repair parts for my DRZ 400. It looks like it will be very durable

The US-5 Drypack combined with the US Tank adapter is the perfect tankbag for my sportbike and naked bike (Ducati 1199 Panigale and Ducati Monster 1100 EVO). The minimalist approach is perfect for carrying my wallet, iPhone, etc (even a water bottle). I previously used Ducati Performance tank bags which are too high; now I can lean over the front tank and keep my weight bias forward for those high-speed wide sweeping corners. Plus, the minimalist approach looks much cooler than a big, bulky bag up front. When I want more storage, I simply throw on my R15, R25, or R30 backpack.

I have been using a US5 for a few years now and it has proven to be a great little bag. From being strapped empty to the back of my R15 or R20 to being strapped to the rear fender using Rack Loops it is a durable bag that always seems to be in use.

I use the US-5 as a tail pack for use on day rides on my road bike and as a handy bag to keep all my important stuff in when touring abroad. Being waterproof means that things like passport, bike documents etc are safe and being so easy to put on and off the bike means I can easily take it with me when I park. Being easy to take off doesn't mean its insecure though, because it doesn't budge when in place, up to autobahn speeds. In fact I am looking at getting the tank pad adaptor so I can use it when the pillion is covered in luggage/person.

I've used a number of kriega products and find the quality 2nd to none. The US-5 as seen more abuse on the dirt bike than a little, a blasting with the jet wash after every outing and after 3yrs still as good as new. TOP KIT
