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

Great product for long trips - tough as nails - kind of annoying for everyday

I do use this bag for daily commuting to work and it is super secure - not going anywhere when strapped down properly. I have had it packed to the brim and it held up great. Good quality materials. The US20 is nice because you get that shoulder strap to take the bag casually around.
However, now that I've used it a bunch, here are my cons. The dry sac roll up bag gets a little tiring after a while. I actually wish it had a bigger zip pocket at the top for more easy in out stuff. Also, doing, undoing, and doing again, four strap tie downs every time you want to take the bag with you gets a little tiring as well. The compression straps can hook on two different loops - loops on the bag for when the bag is on your shoulder, and loops on the bike. It's kind of a double edged sword because the system works really well, is really secure, and looks great, but it's a bit of a pain sometimes. Kriega needs to refine that a little more. Maybe a second 'S' buckle.
Yes, I recommend this product.

REV'IT! Athos Air Vest In order to remain highly visible in traffic without compromising on airflow, REV'IT! developed the Athos Air vest as the summer edition of the popular Athos vest. The front and back panels are made of fully perforated PWR shell mesh EN471 certified fabric. Stretch panels at the side ensure that the Athos Air vest fits easily over any summer mesh jacket in the REV'IT! collection, so air flows directly to your body through 2 layers of mesh fabric

I really like this vest, and it fits over my Rev'it! Galactic jacket perfectly. I have a large jacket, and the large vest.
The zipper is easy to operate, and the material is even slightly stretchy, which makes getting it on over the jacket very easy.
My one gripe, and it's a little one, is that I can notice the Scotchbrite reflector strip across the belly wearing against my fuel tank. I haven't had the vest long, and I hope it doesn't show more wear marks. Trivial really.
Okay, second gripe. It's quite expensive for what it is. Perhaps the price is high because it seems to use a similar mesh to the jackets, which may be a higher end fabric.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Great quality. Good value. You can tell Rev'it! takes the time to get the materials right, cross their 't's and dot their 'i's.
I would say the fit is is a little loose around the belly, or small at the shoulders, but everyone's body shape is different. Maybe I'm just too jacked.. haha jk. Extremely comfortable though.
My one comment for improvement to Rev'it! would be to add more ScotchLite reflective panels. The only two little ones are on the elbows. I don't know about you guys but my safety is important to me. We can all look good while keeping safe! I picked up the Rev'it! High-Viz Athos Air Vest for night riding and crazy traffic. Get the same size as your jacket and it will fit perfectly.
The jacket works flawlessly with their pants. I picked up some Rev'it! Tornado pants. Great quality zippers and nice stretch panels for forward leaning on your bike.
Yes, I recommend this product.
