Kriega R25 Backpack The Kriega R25 motorcycle backpack has a quick release QUADLOC harness, which is Kriega's own tried, tested and highly recommended system, unique to the rucksack industry. An innovative extremely efficient load-carrying system designed for motorcycle riders. Unlike conventional harness systems the load is carried on the hips chest, transferring the majority of the load away from the shoulders and thereby preventing the neck strain experienced with regular rucksacks. Ergonomically designed with no arm restriction for long distance comfort on a motorcycle. Features Main compartment - YKK oversize zip Side access pocket with 4-point load compression Internal magazine sleeve, which can accommodate a 14 laptop Internal key-clip SUPERSPACE 5mm airspace fabric Oversize YKK coil zips Upgraded harness to enable a wider range of rider to get the perfect Kriega fit Fully hydration compatible - reservoir relocated from outer pocket to main compartment Optional Kriega 3 Liter Hydrapak + Tube avaliable (sold separately) Hydration tube routes out and over the shoulder through a covered duct located top, center of the main compartment Reflective web loops on sides of pack to facilitate easier fastening of US-10 expansion pack Schoeller DYNATECH with integrated 3M Scotchlite reflectivity 1000D Dupont Cordura base harness 420D nylon ripstop - lightweight yet extremely strong CNC 6061-T6 alloy buckles Expanding outer pocket 10 year guarantee 25-liter capacity 520mm(H) x 300mm(W) x 160(D) mm

I have used this bag for short rides to work and long trips over the last two years. It has yet to show any sign of trouble. Build quality is excellent and comfort is second to none. I would recommend using a Kube for quick access to a phone or point and shoot. It is not a waterproof bag but I have been caught in a surprise rain or two and the contents were still dry. To guarantee contents are dry I would recommend using a waterproof compression sack from a camping store. If someone tells you that Kriega is the best, believe them.

I have a Bell Star that I use as a touring helmet so as soon as I saw this I knew I wanted it. The Transitions lens works exactly as you would expect it to. The shield changes to dark quickly and as of yet I have not noticed the change when it occurs. But a quick look in the mirror will confirm that it did change. I have not had occasion to use it in a tunnel so I cannot say if the change back to clear is too slow but you can always open the visor for that period if you need. It fits just like any of the other visors should and does not leak air. I would recommend this to anyone willing to spend the money. The only reason I will not give it top scores is the price. Twice that of Iridium even!
