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.

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.

I fit the US-30 on my fz-07 and it rocks. The fasteners and clips are sturdy so the thing never moves at speed. I find it works better when packed full vs half empty. Ive taken it from San Francisco to Zion in Utah and it has taken a beating. The finishes on the outside are premium and I keep finding new ways to hook something up.
My favorite part is actually having the side strap hooked up to it and being able to carry it off my bike easily if I don't want it stolen. I doubt most people would bother trying to unhook everything because it looks complicated but it is actually really simple.

Originally, I have a matte black Shoei Qwest but I wanted something more stylish. This is def a great cheap option but I wish I would have bought the $250 version with the built in Sena holder. You can not fit the bracket on the inside of the helmet. Not sure what it is made of but obviously it is cheaper quality vs a Shoei. Still solid and tested.

One of the main supports for this is using the plastic stock fender eliminator. Without it, nothing holds up the mount so now I have to figure out how to get something to work.

I bought it to wear during my 20 minute commutes to school in the morning. The weather is about high 30's so it is pretty cold! The jacket keeps me perfect warm with a shirt and light sweater under it! You can definitely wear it around and it looks like a normal winter jacket.
Protection is average with basic shoulder and elbow armor. It has slots for back and chest. There are no ventilation on the jacket and I haven't tested it during the summer but you can take the thermal liner out. I'm guessing it will still be pretty hot.
Overall, great jacket for the price. The only issue I have with fit is that I wish the neck had more room. After it is velcroed, it is really tight.

 Icon Sub Stealth Gloves
Icon Sub Stealth Gloves
The new Sub glove chassis enjoys several benefits previously found only on gloves at a much higher price. Built around a proven Battlehide goatskin palm and finger gussets foundation, the Sub is more than ready for asphalt chaos. A lightweight textile backhand with a high-mobility thumb, not only creates a prime canvas for Icon's finest art, but provides excellent dexterity and abrasion resistance. Completing the protection package is the plastic knuckle armor group fortified to help disperse the shock of the incoming tarmac barrage. The Sub glove - designed to do your dirty work so your skin doesn't have too. Abrasion resistant premium grade Battlehide goatskin palm Injected plastic knuckle armor Short cuff design with secure wrist closure Pre-curved palm and finger design Imported

Love these gloves for the price! It takes a few times to wear them in initially because the goatskin in the palm and thumb are a bit stiff but now its great! Very stylish short cuff gloves compared to most motorcycle gloves.
