Kriega US-20 Drypack The Kriega US-20 is an award-winning, high quality piece of motorcycle luggage, offering 20 liters of capacity. Like all Kriega US bags, it is a 100 waterproof Drypack with innovative design which attaches to the sub-frame, via included buckle loops and Alloy Hook Straps, for use as a motorcycle tail pack and courier bag. The Kriega US-20 motorcycle bag comes equipped with removable shoulder and waist straps. It can be carried courier style, on or off the bike. It can also be used as a tank bag (with addition of US Tank adaptor) or in combination with other US packs to create a supremely adaptable, modular, soft luggage system. Anti-slip mesh base also doubles as a pocket to store the shoulder waist straps, or other items, when the US-20 is attached to the motorcycle. The shoulder strap connects to the large D-rings at each end of the pack and the waist strap connects to 2 x tuck-away buckles at the corners of the mesh-pocket. The Kriega US-20 dry pack motorcycle tailpack is designed to work perfectly with pretty much any motorcycle, via a super secure attachment to the sub-frame. The pack is easily attached/removed by 4 x quick-release buckles, and no extra bungees or rain covers are required.

I was looking for a bag to replace my current soft briefcase/laptop bag that I bring to work each day. I have a small travel type Lenovo laptop (X220), iPad and the usual pile of stuff ( wallet, iPhone, keys, sunglasses, charging adapters, USB sticks, 50 other unexplainable things I carry) that I keep in small zippered or drawstring stuff sacks. I wanted to be able to detach it and carry it into work. I poked around the Internet for weeks and found Kriega. I was in luck as Revzilla had some great vids explaining how they work and what features they had. The permanent strap system that remains on the bike eliminates these special hold downs, bungee cords or gear nets. Additionally since they remain on the bike they can't be lost or "grow legs" and walk off. And of course since they are for your particular bag it keeps the bag safely attached. I leave the shoulder strap on all the time and have begun to use this as my carry on bag on airline trips.. The inner waterproof bag keeps all the gear dry. The only change I have made is adding a pad that slides onto the shoulder strap so that it will not "cut in" to my shoulder when running/standing in airports. I do wish it had a small carry handle but I've gotten used to carrying it by one of the side buckle straps. All in all a great, well made, quality constructed bag.

I was looking for a quality shorty helmet that did not look like a pillow on my head. I usually wear a full face helmet for commuting or touring but sometimes I ride a cafe bike on weekends. I like to have an open feeling on the cafe and I wanted something with a vintage look & feel. The Pit Boss looks great and is very comfortable. This helmet has a hidden pull down shield (eyes only) that has come in handy a few times but I rarely use it. I've had Bells in the past so I expected good quality and the Pit Boss did not let me down in this regard. The price is not much more than a "cheap" helmet so Bell has done well in the price department too.
