Kriega makes high quality stuff, there's no arguing that fact. Their sole focus on motorcycle gear is clear in the design and implementation of their products and it really shows in how clever it all just works.
The price is a bit steep but you're paying for the above mentioned items so that's easy to justify in my opinion. The bag fits an 11" laptop with ease; a 13" is a little snug but it will fit, however I think a padded sleeve around a 13" will not fit, just something to keep in mind if you're a commuter and plan to use this bag for that.
The only thing I'd change is the waist strap. It works but you can't quickly/easily take remove the waist strap bag if you don't occasionally need to use it. Having clips that you strap on the bag would be a nice 2.0 improvement.

I have a good set of Sidi Canyon's for touring that I love, but for walking around the office, town, etc. these Spidi's rock. The sole is comfortable and the shorter height is nice and they vent really well in the heat. Only warning is that tall socks are required in my opinion for comfort unless you like your leg rubbed raw.

I cycle through jackets about every 13 months, but this one will be my go-to jacket from now on. Super comfortable the first time out and subtle styling that looks good off the bike (I bought the all black version). Very well made and the leather is about the best I've ever had.
It is perforated and stays a bit cooler than a standard leather jacket, but lets face it, a black leather jacket is going to be warm regardless. A pair of vertical or one horizontal vent in the back would have been nice along with a couple of interior pockets (the chest protector pocket is the only interior one). Aside from those two minor gripes, it's still a great jacket and I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for an everyday, understated, higher end riding jacket.

Price is fair for the piece, but it's pretty noticeable when installed. Not intrusive and doesn't make me feel like Quasimodo, but you do have a bit more hump out back and you know it's there all the time. Fits perfectly in the pocket of my Dainese Alien Jacket (size 50).
