Kriega US-30 Drypack The Kriega US-30 is 30-litre capacity 100 waterproof motorcycle tailpack. Unique design solution enables fitment can fit directly to the bike's subframe or solid mounting under the seat. The US-30 also comes equipped with removable shoulder and waist straps, so it can be carried courier style, on or off the bike. Base anti-slip mesh also doubles as a pocket to store the shoulder and waist straps when the US-30 is attached to the bike. The shoulder strap connects to the large D-rings at each end of the pack and the waist strap connects to 2 fold away buckles at the corners of the mesh-pocket. The Kriega US-30 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 US-30 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 sub-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. See US Alloy Hook Strap page for full fitting instructions. For use as a tankbag, Kriega US Tank Adaptor must be purchased. Features 1000D Dupont Cordura (100 waterproof main body) RHINOTEK abrasion resistant fabric HYPALON abrasion resistant re-enforcement DRYPACK removable tape-seamed liner (white) 420D nylon ripstop - lightweight yet extremely strong Acetal ITW Airloc buckles YKK water-resistant zips 6061-T6 alloy fitting hooks Side access zip pocket (water-resistant) Coated-mesh pocket Shoulder waist straps 1 x set US Alloy Hook Straps included 10-year guarantee 30-litre capacity 445mm(H) x 295mm(W) x 225mm(D) Note The US-30 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.

Not much I can say that has not already been stated in all the reviews. I ride a 2008 GSA, bought the 30 and 20 liter Drypack bags. I use the 30 for tool storage, bought storage container (heavy duty) which would fit inside the 30...this allows me to remove the container...take care of business...put tools back in container and slide container back in bag....no need to re-strap...adjust straps,,,,because everything is same dimensions all I have to do is roll bag up and I am on the road.
The modular system these bags afford is really nice. Get a good starter bag, and just add on as you go. Wish I had known about this company and their products long ago. Like my dad always said buy the best and buy it once...well... had I known about Kriega I would have surely done that...but at least I am with the best now. Great bags...very tough, well laid out, tons of mounting options and there is no way water will get in these bags...no way. Thanks Revzilla..once again your advice and help got me off the fence of indecision.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is my 3rd blue tooth unit. First two were from other companies, and were VERY disappointing. Did a LOT of research this time, well actually my good buddy who is about as intense as one can get did most of the research. Anyway we finally settled on the SMH10-11. The unit feels very solid. The jog dial does not feel loose, it has a well made feel to it. Phone operation, and sound is great. My son called me from 4 hours away at 55 miles an hour on his SMH10 and I had no idea he was on this unit until at the end of the conversation he told me we had been talking over his SMH. My previous 2 Bluetooth units would become difficult to hear around 70 to 75mph. I was not expecting much difference from the SMH even though when I first put my helmet on I could hear a definite increase in the sound quality from the SMH speakers. In addition the volume adjustment will allow you to blow your own head off if you are so inclined. While out riding I passed an 18wheeler and by the time I got back in my lane I was over 100mph...still listening to my music...clearly. WOW..I'm sold. The functionality of this unit, coupled with the clarity and voice commands make it a MUST HAVE.
To take things a step farther I have coupled this unit with the SR10 and a CB...works like a charm. Bluetooth CB at ranges of 1 mile plus...NICE.
I gave a 4 on durability only because the unit is new...

REV'IT! Tornado Pants The REV'IT! TORNADO trousers combine maximum cooling, through air mesh panels, with abrasion-resistant fabric and CE-approved armor at the knees, to give you ultimate temperature flexibility in adventure touring trousers. Like the REV'IT! TORNADO jacket, the trousers are equipped with the all-new 2-in-1 liners that combine a 100 waterproof membrane with a thermal insulated liner, which are easily zipped out and stowed away for hot weather days. These trousers are so practical and easy to get on and off (with or without liners), thanks to the full length zippers, that you're going to wonder how you ever lived without them. REVIT PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyester rib, PWRshell mesh, polyester 600D, PWRwax 500D, PWRshell 500D stretch, polyester dull 600D, Lorica reg Insulation detachable 2-in-1 thermal liner and membrane Waterproofing detachable hydratex G-liner (5000mm H2O) Breathability detachable hydratex G-liner (5000g/m2/24hrs) Composition outer shell 86 polyamide, 14 polyester lining 100 polyester membrane 100 polyamide (100 polyurethane coating, insulation 100 polyester) Protection Knox Flexiform CE protection at knees Visibility laminated reflection at upper legs and calves ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability adjustment straps at waist, adjustment tab at ankles Ventilation ventilation panels at legs Features short connection zipper, elastic at waistband, adjustable protector pockets, easy entrance zipper Pockets slit pockets NOTE The Tornado Pants run 1 size larger compared to other REV'IT! Pants and to what the size charts indicate. If you measure up to be a size 52, you should go with a 50 instead.

These pants are what I was looking for. I wanted a pant I could wear long underwear under, my current overpants over, a vented pant that fit well, offered good protection, and all this while not making me look like the Michelin Man. By the time it was all over I had bought and returned 3 pairs of pants...2 from another manu., a different style from Revit, and finally, thanks to the recommendations of one of the customer service folks at Revzilla I settled on the Tornado. I had honestly thought about them in the very beginning but didn't think I needed a liner. Finally the light went on and I reminded myself I wanted a pant I could wear long underwear under if I needed to....WELL....a thermal liner is real close to long johns....so DUH....wow...what an idiot.
In addition the claim that Revit is cut small....found that out on a different Revit product...waist fit but the upper thigh felt like someone had wrapped my legs in duct tape....I was afraid to sit down in them. AGAIN the Revzilla rep. reminded me the Tornado says right on the screen....CUT BIG. I had totally discounted that statement when I was researching what to buy. But it is true...very true...the Tornado's are cut bigger, and they fit great.
I wore the pant last week on a two hour ride. The temp was 92 to 96 degrees....while I was suffering because I had opted not to wear my water pack...I was not suffering due to lack of wind on my legs....these pants vent more air than my last pair of true vented pants...impressive.
Really like the full length zipper...leave your boots on and take off the pants...nice. Boot closure is great, and the way the liner zips in and out is the best I have seen....no snaps...hate those darn snaps. SO long story short...buy the best and buy them once....I almost didn't, but thanks to Revzilla pointing me in the right direction I finally ended up with what I was looking for all along.
Yes, I recommend this product.
