Kriegas Urban Messenger Bag
We’ve been using one of Kriegas back packs, the R35, on the occasional longer spin for the last few years. I’m impressed with what the guys in Kriega do and how they make their luggage. You can tell that these are people who ride bikes, a lot of what we take as compromise when using other brands is designed in, or out, for the better.
With the ‘Urban’ Kriega have surpassed themselves. From the waterproof, and that really is waterproof, body with its clever, impossible for even a motorcycle journalist to damage, roll top closing system, to the easily accessible zipped pocket and document sleeve inside the flap, they’ve thought of it all.
The main shoulder strap is cleverly fitted to balance the bike on the riders back in a way that dissipates the weight, even when stuffed to the brim with all the detritus that I don’t really need, but for some reason carry around with me. It is, of course, fully adjustable and there is a retaining strap to keep it from moving about when underway.
If, and it’s a big if, you need any more storage there is an option to purchase additional US Drypacks which can be cleverly clipped to the front of the bag. There are a trio of padded cases available for laptops and tablets which fit perfectly into the main bag.
The Kriega Urban is available from our site and all good motorcycle shops nationwide with an RRP of €169. The additional Drypacks are €55 each and the padded cases for computer equipment start at €19 and go up to €35. There is, also, a whole host of other soft luggage available from this innovative company. You can find more information and order yours on our online shop or call us on 00353(0)15385005.
