 Kriega US-20 Drypack
Kriega US-20 Drypack
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. The Kriega dry bag US-20 tail pack utilizes the latest generation of fitting straps. US Alloy Hook Straps allow tailpack combinations of up to 90-liters to be carried with confidence and convenience. Easy on/off with no loose straps remaining. Custom CNC milled, aircraft grade, 6061-T6 alloy hooks attach to the four discreet web loops located on the frame of the bike. Fitting method is particularly suitable for traditional one-piece motorcycle seats and bolt-on seat pads/racks, as well as standard seats. US packs can be mounted inline or across the seat. For use as a tankbag, Kriega US Tank Adaptor must be purchased. Kriega US-20 dry pack features 100 waterproof main-body RHINOTEK abrasion resistant fabric HYPALON abrasion resistant reinforcement DRYPACK removable taped-seam inner liner 420D nylon ripstop - lightweight yet extremely strong CNC milled, 6061-T6 alloy fitting hooks Acetal ITW Airloc quick-release buckles YKK water-resistant zip on side pocket Side access zip pocket (water-resistant) Coated-mesh pocket Shoulder waist straps US Alloy Hook Straps included 10-year guarantee 20-liter capacity (H)15.7 x (W)10.2 x (D)7.5 inches

The Kriega US-20 Drypack was better than I thought! Over packed it for a three day trip and, with compression, everything fit! Works perfectly with the Kriega US Tank Adapter! Even off the bike, the included shoulder strap helps carry the drypack from bike to room or restaurant without it feeling too heavy!

The Kriega US Tank Adapter was a perfect fit on my Tiger. With a fully loaded US-20 Daypack attached on this adapter, I was able to fill-up my tank without having to undo too many attachments - just two simple quick releases will do it!

The Kathmandu Overpants is just what I'm looking for! The fit is actually just right even though I rate it as fitting just a tad larger. Reason is I like the my pants to fit just a bit larger for ease of straddling over my bike as well as not having it become too restricted on the bike when it starts getting too hot underneath.

Love the Firstgear Kathmandu! The first day after I received my jacket I put it on and gave it a try on my ride to work. Given that it was 27 degrees C the ventilation was just about right. However I can imagine given our high temperatures here in Taiwan, this jacket would be much too warm to wear when the temperatures sore above 34!
But, on my first ride, I got to try the weather proofing as well as the ventilation and just loved it! Wasn't too hot when moving and the water repellence was just perfect, even with the vents opened on the front!
Would recommend it for anyone that is interested in an ADV jacket that is priced right!
