    Kriega Kit

    Post by Taffy300 on Wed Aug 05, 2015 12:14 pm

    No I dont have anything better to do other than sit in the office on SWTR site, Ebay, Amazon & whatever else I can think of to get me out of working.

    To all that use Kriega kit:

    Whats the best rucksack size to buy, Im basing this on the bigger the bag the more shit you tend to carry, I use a Camelbak Mule 15L, which would be great if all the compartments wasnt seperate, this making it several pointless small ish compartments.

    Is the R25 to big ?
    Opinions on the R20 please
    Is the R15 to small ?

    Can you give me your reviews & reasons please....Cheers.

    Hi

    The R15 works well for me Very Happy
    It's plenty big enough for trail riding, including a water bladder (that you do have to buy yourself though!) with straps that tighten up to stop stuff moving around when it's only half full, and can also be let out to make a lot more room if necessary - to stuff a coat in for example

    But the best bit though is the way it carries weight without you feeling it, due to the fancy harness/strap system

    Ive got the Hydro 3 camel pack , plus the R20 ( which I dont use much ) , which you can swap the bladder into . The Hyrdo 3 has a waterproof pocket that I can squeeze my Kriega Stash wallet manpouch , and a phone into but thats about it . But with the Wolfman Daytripper bags and an Acerbis Tool pouch on the bike , theres more than enough room for all your bits , plus no weight on your back . All depends if you dont mind the weight , cos like you say , the bigger the more shit you'll end up putting in it . And like Kirky said , get a Kriega Kube pocket to go on the front for camera , phone etc . Its good stuff , tough zips etc cheers

    Pretty much had them all:

    R15 - Too Small for a night away but OK for a day out. (can add US5 / 10 onto for more room)
    R20 - Pretty much perfect.  (can add US5 / 10 onto for more room)
    R25 - OK for a long weekend & enough room for Jeans / Trainers / Sweatshirt sort of packing.
    R35 - Toured around France for 5 days & it was Brilliant (can't use a hydration pack with this one) if a tad big

    Now I use a Hydro3 with a US5 strapped to the back when I need more room (can also strap the US10 to it)
    I also have the Rally Pack screwed to my rear fender for tools etc & Front / Rear Haul Loops.
