The Kriega R25 is a great backpack with a design that moves the weight from the neck and shoulders to the back and chest allowing for very few restrictions with arms and shoulders whilst riding.
The durable construction of the bag and the 10-year guarantee could likely make one of these backpacks one of, if not the last backpack you’ll ever need to purchase for riding.
One of the traits all Kriega backpacks share is the black colour, this is great as black is a colour that is harder to get dirt and grime to show up visibly on allowing it to remain looking clean even after being sat on the ground or being thrown around or dropped.
The R25 backpack measures in at 52 cm by 30 cm by 16 cm (20.5 by 12 by 6.25 inches) according to Kriega.
Large reflective panels on the front and rear add a level of visibility safety for night riding.
Specs of the bag include:
The internal volume is 25-litres (1500cu in) capacity.
Weight 1400 grams
1000D Cordura on base and harness
420D nylon rip-stop construction
Reflective panels front and rear
Superspace 5mm airspace fabric
Hypalon carry handle
YKK water resistant zips
The padding is made of extra soft foam covered in layers of mesh material with a rough texture which helps keep the bag in one place when riding. The soft nature of the foam and material allows the backpack to conform and suit the wearer’s back allowing for an extra comfortable piece of equipment to wear when riding.
