Kriega R30 Backpack
The Kriega R30 Backpack features an abrasion-resistant Cordura construction and a 100% waterproof body with a 30-litre capacity.
Ideal for keeping your valuables protected from the harshest conditions, the R30 is Kriega’s 30-litre capacity rucksack, capable of carrying a 17-inch laptop, a few days change of clothing and groceries. Constructed of rip-stop nylon and abrasion-resistant Cordura fabrics at the base and harness, the R30’s main compartment is 100% waterproof, with integrated compression straps to keep your luggage in place while riding and two zipped rear pockets for easy access storage.
Kriega Rucksacks offer a luggage solution for touring motorcyclists, adventure seekers and commuters alike. Kriega’s award-winning backpacks have been an industry favourite for years, known for their complete waterproof protection, innovative design, and durable, long-lasting construction.
However, what sets Kriega’s backpacks aside from other brands is their harness system. The innovative design of Kriega’s Quadloc harness distributes the weight of your rucksack equally from the shoulders to the chest and hips. This not only prevents the neck strain experienced with regular backpacks but makes for a more stable and restriction-free ride.
The ergonomics of the R rucksacks outperforms any other on the market. Even the heaviest loads and longest distances are made comfortable by the unconventional harness system, and the backpack’s weather resistant and durable structure makes worrying about your luggage a thing of the past.

Kriega Motorcycle Luggage
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.
How Kriega See Themselves
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 day to day riding bag
I purchased the R25 as I needed a replacement bag which could hold my work gear and laptop for short trips when I decide to take the bike to work. I was looking at the R35 but the extra size wasn't needed. This is the perfect size. Certainly enough room for some day to day essentials. Perfect for popping to the shops to do some small shopping. If you want to tour I would suggest the larger R35. Don't be put off by the price of KRIEGA kit. Its really well built and will no doubt last ages. its very comfortable riding. The double clasp chest strap works well and reduces load on your shoulders. I'm still bedding my bag in. Out of the bag all of the straps are very rigid. A few more miles and the bag will be a lot more flexible and hugging.
fantastic well made Backpack that ticks all the right boxes
over the years I purchased many backpacks but there seems always one ore more problems with backpacks made for two wheels .... now this one looks and feels like it ticks all the right boxes only got the R30 for about a week but no problems. it is very easy to put on even with a jacket, sits nice on my Back and does not feel restrictive in terms of movement on two wheels
Great bag, but not actually waterproof, not even close
Echo the other reviews - can carry quite a weight in it without feeling like it's a problem or bad for the back. Great for the commute, nothing on it has failed in 3 years of use, however, I write this on a morning when it's pissing down outside and I've got 65 miles to cover to get to the office, and this bag is in no way waterproof. Never has been. To back this up, they sell waterproof liners for these bags. I'm told the larger ones are waterproof, and I've used one of those high-viz 'hump' covers that keep the worst of it out (until it vanished on a motorway somewhere), but in anything other than a light shower, expect internal moistness at best, or a little puddle at the bottom at worst. Not a problem, unless like me you commute with a laptop in there - then it's a lottery, Or if you had a delicate cargo of sherbert filled flying saucers - That'd be messy. Got a few friends with this bag, all with the same issue. Good bag, just booo for not being waterproof.
I've had this bag for 8 years and cannot fault it. Great size internal pocket, comfortable on and easy to use chest fastenings. They hold a higher price but so worth every penny. You can fit a lot in if you pack it right.
Well worth the money
I've had this bag for 7 years and can not fault it. Great material and can withstand a lot. Lovely and comfortable. The chest fastening is great and helps distribute the weight that you are holding. The pockets behind the chest overlay are perfect for house/work keys as allows easy access, without routing taking the bag off. Always surprises me how much I can fit into the internal bag.
Awesome, functional daysack
Recommended by a friend & the guys in the Southampton store, quite expensive however the quality justifies the price. Very comfortable to wear, easy to use the 2 front clips whilst wearing gloves. Ample space for a weekend away, easy to clean when muddy, even outer pockets haven't leaked in heaviest downpours.. Shame it's taken me 21 years to get decent kit.
Totally waterproof in a monsoon.
I bought this bag a while back as I was doing some travelling in Southeast Asia and got caught on a bike in a heavy monsoon on my way to the Moto GP. I was in a severe downpour for about 15 minutes before it eased off. I was expecting my stuff, including my camera to be ruined as I looked as if I'd just stepped off of the Titanic at its final stop! Some moisture had crept through the outer pockets, but the guys in the shop told me these weren't 100% sealed even with the waterproof zips. The main roll top protected interior was totally dry. Brilliant. It's also really comfortable to wear. I can't recommend this bag highly enough. It wasn't cheap, but you really do get what you pay for. I've had this for about 6 years now, and I use it all the time. It's an old cliche but 'buy right, buy once' is really true in the case of this bag
Excellent service, as usual
I was searching for a Kriega R30 and could not find one for less than full retail anywhere when Infinity sent me a £10 voucher, I immediately ordered the bag and it arrived the next day. I've bought a number of Kriega and other items from Infinity and find them second to none for service. Many thanks
I was after a waterproof rucksack that would feel as unobtrusive as possible and that is exactly what I have found in the R30!
I know what you're thinking, £135 for a rucksack you must be off your trolley. But believe me its worth it, apart from being 100% waterproof, it's the way it sits on you and that most of the weight is taken through your chest and not your shoulders. Therefore when you've loaded it up, which I've done a few times now, you actually forget your wearing anything on your back due to the clever design. I would definitely recommend this product, especially if you have to carry a lot of stuff with you regularly.
Great service and great product
I ordered the Kriega R30 and received it promptly via Infinity. The back pack is excellent and holds loads of stuff. There is no internal pockets or dividers but that's fine as I use a Maxedition Fatty to separate my work items out in the large open white waterproof area.
Plenty of space good quality bag
I bought this bag to take my gym gears. I can fit in the main compartment 2 pairs of shoes, a pair of trousers, and a 1L bottle. There is another 2 pockets outside with plenty more space. I love the locking system which is both very easy and make it comfortable to carry the bag. Greatly recommended for those who don't have a top case!
It doesn't get any better !
I had spent countless hours reading reviews about all different rucksacks. It may be more expensive than most, but it was immediately apparent the level of quality materials used. I use the rucksack everyday on my 60 mile round trip commute its excellent straps make it comfortable and easy to take off and on. I cannot emphasize how much of a must have this item is ! Plus when purchasing with infinity you get time slot deliverys and free postage. All this make for one happy customer !
VERY PLEASED WITH THE KRIEGA R30 RUCKSACK I ORDERED FROM THE INFINITY MOTORCYCLES WEBSITE. QUICK DELIVERY. WILL USE INFINITY MOTORCYCLES AGAIN!
Kriega R30 - Excellent
Light, well made and weatherproof. More room than you would imagine - enough for a summer weekend away - with useful easy access weatherproof outside pockets. So comfortable I hardly know it is there, particularly when the wife is riding pillion, and I strap it to her.
Bought this R30 after having the R35, this backpack is awesome!!! Keeps all my kit dry during the Great British weather. Very comfortable to wear and I would recommend anyone to buy this back pack. I would also recommend purchasing from infinity motorcycles, the price value is second to none at the item arrived quicker than my RSV!! All in all I am a very happy biker..
Excellent products and super service from Infinity
Back pack was comfortable even with a heavy load. Only downside was that it was not waterproof but I put all my clothes in plastic bin bags before packing.
Kriega, sounds german but best of British
Bought as a gift for my son as he permanently had mine strapped to his back ! yes you pay more for Kriega but its the businessl. I have US 5,10 & 20 and the R3 all worth every penny Just look at second hand prices its a great investment The pre christmas delivery from infinity was superb ordered monday here weds am!
The best you can get
For something that gets used every day, you may as well not mess about and get something decent. These seem to be the only bags around with the clever strap design so that you don't have strap ends flapping around, and the locking system is great. Easy to get on and off, simple adjustments, not too many pockets and compartments inside (cheaper bags tend to add pockets instead of improve quality as you go up in price). Hard wearing (though time will tell) and capable of taking a fair amount of weight. I wasn't sure whether to get this or the 30 but glad I did as I wouldn't want too much more in my back and have a tendency to fill bags up, this is quite heavy enough with a 17" laptop, cables, headphones, audio interface and a bunch of music paraphernalia. Room for usual daily kit plus your lunchbox. For a weekend away you'd have to travel light or add something else on the bike. My only gripe is that there's no dedicated water bottle holder on the outside as I don't like putting bottles
I use my backpack for everything (even if im not on my bike) the harness is comfortable and easy to adjust and the ammount you can store is very surprising. This product along has encouraged me to purchase other bags in the Kriega range!
Great bag and lives up to the hype..
Well I have not had this backpack for long but I have already loaded it up with Computer, notes, notepads and goodness knows what else. It spreads the weight very evenly and makes it so easy to carry your "stuff". I have not used it in the rain as yet and have heard mixed reviews about this. However, if you are taking a laptop with you or tablet simply put it in a protective sleeve, that's what I do anyway. The quality of the bag seems very good and I have friends that have had theirs for years and years so I have every confidence that this one will last a good long time. One thing that I was surprised about and that is the change in design to the shoulder adjustment straps. The older version used to have the same harness sliders as the lower straps still have but they are gone on this model. That said the adjustments are fine and its really comfortable. It does know pretend to be the cheapest bag out there but its worth every penny.. In my opinion of course!!
Fantastic bag...well chuffed!
Quad like harness extremily comfy, does exactly what it says it should do! Yet to be proven in the wet, though it is a well produced & rugged bag. Massive range of adjustments on straps...prevents all flapping! Plenty of storage options and a very stylish design. The construction of the design has very much eased my neck & back Pain too. Overall a fantastic bag!
THIS IS AN EXCELLENT PRODUCT FITS SECURELY ON YOUR BACK VERY COMFORTABLE TO RIDE WITH,MADE OF ROBUST MATERIALS AND HOPEFULLY WILL LAST A LIFETIME.
Having used a standard hiking backpack for years, I had become used to the aches you get after a few hours on the bike. The first time I used this, I spent 3 hours with 15kg on my back and I had absolutely no aches or pains. Enough space to pack for a 3 day weekend. Great quality construction and completely waterproof. (With the dry bag) Can't recommend enough!
Love this bag!
Lydia, Manager, Infinity Motorcycles Norwich. I love this bag! The fastening harness is great, it supports the weight evenly and feels very secure. Being the larger size of their bag range its ideal for what I need. I can fit my handbag, trainers, jeans and work shirt or full gym kit with towels. On those occasions I’m carrying less it’s got a handy strap to draw the centre bag in. There is a little internal pocket that I used for my keys as it saves time trawling through trying to find them. It looks good and I would highly recommend this bag.
Good sturdy back pack
Backpack is sturdy and well built. It has withstood the rain test a few times already and is watertight. Loads of room which I needed as I carry a lot of stuff for work etc. A great backpack, well worth the money
I'm not a biker myself , so I had no idea what I was looking at , all I knew was my boyfriend wanted a new back pack for Christmas ( he mentioned oxford brand ). I done a little research on the oxford and kriega and decided on the latter ..then rang hein gerick ,who told me they dont stock that make anymore, they stock their own brand oxford . I asked which was better in his opinion and he said the kriega , my next question was.. does he know where I can get one ? He said I shouldn't really say because they are our competition ... he then told me Infinity . I thanked him very much . And the boyfriend does aswell now !!! :)
Fast delivery, product as described
The Kriega R35 rucksack arrived 2 days after ordering and was as described. Would definitely use Infinity again and recommend to a friend. Excellent hassle free service.
