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 Note The US-20 subframe loops are reflective, not black as shown. This will help to ensure a secure connection to the frame of your motorcycle, and to differentiate between the subframe loops and the connection straps.

The overall reviews on the US-20 Dry Pack are practically 5-star everywhere you look so I was pretty confident in making this purchase. I wasn't disappointed. The quality of the bag is what stands out the most in addition to the number of options you have for attaching additional Kriega bags down the road.
I was a little concerned about how the bag would fit on my Yamaha V Star Custom as the rear seat is detachable but very narrow. I don't have a subframe to really attach to but I was able to get everything securely fastened using the 2nd option on their instruction sheet. This calls for attaching a pair of straps together and basically mounting them under your seat. With the seat securely screwed down, the straps have virtually no room to move and I feel confident that the bag is going nowhere.
I haven't had a chance to load it up with gear but many reviewers have noted that it packs more than you'd expect. As a guy, our clothes compress and pack up quite nicely, so I imagine I'll be able to get plenty in here along with maybe a water bottle or two. Looking forward to my first trip of length with it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

There's not much to say about this product in that it's meant specifically for my Shoei Qwest helmet and it fits as expected. I purchased the Dark Smoke model because I wanted the darkest possible in hopes that it would eliminate any need for me to also wear sunglasses. I still need to wear sunglasses on the sunniest of days but I can get away w/o wearing them on partly cloudy days. It's far and away better than the stock clear version that comes with the helmet (good for night riding of course), but perhaps I was wrong to assume these faceshields come too dark. Overall, it was a good purchase.
Yes, I recommend this product.
