The Kriega R22 is a peerless motorcycle backpack for the urban rider made from durable Cordura-Nylon with a 22-litre capacity.
The R22 is the latest addition to their award-winning R backpack (in addition to the R16 backpack), ideal for everyday commuting and weekend riding. Constructed from 420D Cordua and Nylon rip-stop, this lightweight and tough bag is capable of storing up to 22 litres of capacity between its two main compartments.
The main 18-litre drypack pocket features a waterproof interior lining, a rolltop closure to prevent water ingress and is big enough to hold a 17-inch laptop. The easily accessible, zippered second pocket boasts a capacity of 4-litres, ideal for storing 'on-the-go' essentials, including a phone, wallet or set of keys.
The backpack adopts Kriega's proprietary Quadloc Lite technology: a unique harness system that distributes the weight of the bag from the shoulders to the chest and hips, reducing long-term neck strain and improving stability and freedom-of-movement on and off the bike.
The four compression straps on the front allow you to contain the contents of your bag effectively whether full or empty, and the loop straps allow for compatibility with the Kriega US5 or US10 drypacks for expanded storage. The backpack is also compatible for use with the Kriega Harness Pockets, Trail Pockets or the Hydration pack.
Kriega is a British company from Chester. Kriega was founded in 1999 when Dom Longman and Michael Cottam, who had a background in outdoor kit, drew on their love of motorcycling to build a company that would design and make tough, well-made motorcycle luggage of the highest quality. All Kriega products are designed in-house, with an emphasis on hard-wearing quality and ease of use.
Kriega received a Ride kit award in 2011 as recognition for their long-standing commitments to quality luggage and accessories. After receiving the award, design director Dom Longman said, "We invest a lot of time in design and testing because we're not a fashion brand. We build things to last and don't release anything until its right." Some other manufacturers think of luggage as a simple accessory, buy their range from China, rebrand the cheaply-made luggage as their own brand, and sell the end product as though it were designed and made entirely within the company.
Talking about the Kriega backpack range, Dom attributes its popularity to the way in which the weight seems to disappear when wearing it. "We worked hard to design a strap system that took all the strain out of the shoulders and neck so that it was comfortable to wear over long distances."

Great bag for commuting
Amazing bag. I've been using it every day to ride into work for the last 6 months and it has never let me down. The contents are always dry despite monsoon levels of rain, and it fits my massive 17" laptop and notebooks with room to spare! Only bag I've ever had that I forget I am wearing, even fully loaded! Quite pricey but well worth every penny. The quality and finish are great, the straps are infinitely adjustable to fit any body type, and it looks good.
Roll top replacement for my old R20.
Have been using a R20 for over 5 years but broke the zip due to overloading it
