The versatile ‘active’ pack for road and trail.
Incorporating Kriega’s Quadloc-lite™ system, the harness is angled away from under the arms giving total freedom of movement. Once set, the pack is exceptionally convenient to use with none of the re-adjustment necessary on conventional harness systems.
The size adjustable harness allows the pack position to be moved up or down to produce the best possible fit.
An optional waist strap is included for the extra demands of riding off-road.
The R20 incorporates a side pocket with water-resistant YKK® zip, along with an inner sleeve pocket and a key clip in the large main compartment. The pack is compatible with a CE-Level 2 back protector and hydration reservoir.
Designed and built with the highest quality materials, only Kriega offers an ergonomically perfect luggage solution that’s simple to use even in the thickest gloves, yet fully customizable to suit the most demanding of motorcyclists.

I have not tried On Bike yet, but From trying around house, feels very comfortable. Looking forward to receive other products ordered, and use combinations available for all.

Out with the old
After 10 years of service my R15 finally gave up (in the zip department) I know, such shoddy goods :)
The R15 has been used and severely abused during its life, a heroes legend to Dakar, its fallen down so many hillsides with me across Europe and Asia, the R20 has a lot to live up to, I have no doubts that it will.

Great motorcycle pack but also brilliant all-rounder
Have been using Kriega products since 2011 and really can't imagine going for another band. Fit is superb, the R20 has the smaller of the quadloc systems meaning you can wear it whilst walking and it not being overkill. Comfortable even when carrying heavy loads. Slot in the hydration bladder for hiking, mountain biking or other activities, add the dry-packs if you need a bit more carrying capacity.

I've been very impressed with Kriega products in the past, but I think there are a couple of poor design elements here - namely only single zip fastener on main compartment (so all your stuff falls out because you can't just crack open the top), and weird waist strap which feels like an after though. Solid... but expected better.
Kriega Response: Thanks for the comments Steve but this is not a design fault. It's made for motorcyclists, if there were a twin zip at the top this could open when at speed on the bike, hence single zip that has to be pulled up to open.

Very comfy and useful size. Quality product supported with awesome service. Can't go wrong with one of these.

I have been using the Kriega R20 for just over a week and I have never worn a more comfortable rucksack. On the bike even with a laptop and books in I don't notice the weight. If it lasts as long as my R35 that I bought back in 2000 and is still going strong I will be more than happy. The whole bag feels like quality. This will not be the last purchase from Kriega.

Super sac à dos !
Pas facile de trouver un sac à dos efficace, qui ne gêne pas, a un bon maintien et est confortable... Surtout quand on roule en sportive sur des longs trajets avec une combinaison intégrale !
...et bien ce sac est parfait pour ça !

Kriega. Best kit ever. Period.
As a photographer I have always sought out the best kit to carry my equipment in so when it came to Bikes I have followed the same pattern. I have quite a few products now The R-20, R3 waist pack, US-5 and US-20 Drybag, Rack Loops, Rear Haul Loop, Kube pocket and the Fork Seals. I'm going to order up the Tank Adapter, Kube 1 and US-10 before I return to Thailand and then I am pretty much sorted. And with a 10 year guarantee you don't get much better service value than that.

Never expected any less from Kriega. The R20 is fantastic both on and off the bike. Worth every penny!

Does exactly what it says on the tin!
Very impressed with everything from the service i received, through to the item itself.
Also as another reviewer said, " Can't believe I suffered so long without one"

An outstanding piece of equipment
I recently purchased this bag to commute to work with on the bike after my previous bag failed me. It has stood up to some torrential rain the past few days and all my gear stayed dry. It fitted everything I required and still had plenty room left.
I had only recently heard of Kriega but it will be my new brand of choice for any of my luggage requirements.

R20 is as promised.
Sits great on the back

The usual best quality
I've used Kriega products for years so why when I was needing a new rucksack didn't I consider one of theirs! Doh!! Might not just be for biking but it's one product I can use when not on the bike and not feel too conspicuous - but still feel like a biker. Worth every penny.

The R 20 makes all other rucksacks redundant, worth every penny. Can't believe I suffered so long without one.

Even survived a 70mph crash
This is a great rucksack and has got me into all the rest of the Kriega kit. I ride a motorbike and bicycle with this rucksack and it does both brilliantly. It is sometimes a little small but I have a US10 to strap on if I need extra space. It even survived a 65mph slide along the tarmac with the only damage being to one shoulder strap which Kriega fixed for me anyway, very happy.

Simply the best
This is the best rucksack I have ever had for my bike. The Quadloc system works brilliantly and does just as described from the manufacturer. Has also been through some of the "best" downpours the Scottish Summer can throw at us and all my gear stayed dry as a bone. Cannot recommend highly enough.
15th Jan 2012
a really fantastic product. the 'quadloc' system really keeps the straps away from the armpits making it supremely comfortable to wear. it gets used mostly for when i'm cycling and i've just ordered a R25 for motorcycling.
I'm a confirmed Kriega fan - i own US-5, US-10, US-20, US-30, Pocket, Stash and Tool-Roll. it's all fantastic quality.

On and off the bike!
I use this bag every day whether I'm on or off the bike. It gets thrown about all over the place and it is super tough. One of the best buys I've ever made.

Not only for biking !
Just wanted to say that I have a bike and this is the best rucksack I've had but I also have the combo 40l set for big trips so when I booked to trek to Everest base camp I didn't buy a new rucksack I just used the R20 with my US10 attached and it performed fantastically with no shoulder pull carrying a 3L water bladder down jacket waterproofs and I guessed it weighed 15kg? and it had a hard time in 3 weeks trekking with no rips breaks tears. Even the R.M commando's on the trip said it was great kit to their std stuff !

motorcycle specific backpack
Just a heads up on these for anyone in the market for a motorcycle-specific backpack. I bought the R20 (20 litre) model a couple of months ago and can highly recommend them. The "Quadloc" system they use does take the weight off as the blurb suggests and I have been in a downpour and everything inside was as dry as a Nun's nasty. They might be a bit on the expensive side, but if you use a backpack regularly like I do it's worth the investment.
