The ultra-tough off-road pack with 100% waterproof side pod & removable Tool-Roll.

The R8 is a very practical, feature packed waist pack designed for riding trails or competition enduros, bajas or rallies.  

Kriega’s signature alloy belt adjuster sets the waist tension in seconds and eradicates loose strap ends giving an uncluttered design. 

Once the belt tension has been released the pack can be easily be moved around to gain access to items, without the need to take off and on each time.

I love my R8
This is great. It's really comfortable, you forget it is there and in summer you don't end up with a sweaty back like you do when you wear a back pack. Perfect! Really well made as well. Mine has had 3 years use pretty much every day and is still in excellent condition. This is what good design is all about.

Quality product designed for the job. Big enough to carry your tools/spares but not too bulky. Sure it will give me years of service !

Underwater trip
Previously used Fox and Scott waist packs which were okay. This R8 is much more comfortable and carries more than the other 2.... Been underwater wearing the R8, didn't let in any water.

Survived the Dakar
I wore the R8 throughout the Dakar Rally in 2010. It gave me ample carrying space for food and spare gloves/lenses etc as well as all the bizarre documentation you have to have with you. It got crashed and bashed and generally abused yet apart from looking a bit dusty was as good as new. It also made an acceptable pillow in my tent at the bivouac. Thanks Kriega

R8 waistpack
The bag (R8 waistpack) performed spectacularly on the trip and did not even get wet from a hail/rain squall that I went through. Kriega really is top notch gear and I will highly recommend it to all my riding friends.
