the best motorcycle backpack on the market by a mile and a half.
I got the 25 but for what I heard from 35 owners, it is good.
Ask Jay, he has a 35 and he does not go anywhere without it as in need all his “toys”
I have both 25 and 35 and they’re great. My only gripe on both is the zip could be bigger giving a larger opening (ooerr missus!) to make loading easier, but once adjusted properly on your back and on the move they are fantastic. Fit better for riding than ‘ordinary’ rucksacks and don’t move or flap about. Pricey but worth it IMHO.
I have an R1 but hate carrying luggage on my back, rather let the bike take the strain! I bought a baglux whoppa bag that has customised fittings for different bikes. There is a fitting kit that screws onto your subframe, the zips then sit outside the back seat and the bag zips onto the zips. I tried it out going to Cambridge and I didn’t even feel it was on the bike. And I wasn’t hanging about, lol.
Tailpacks are brilliant but the R35 is not great if you’re broad, I find the front pockets/strap sit quite high up on my chest. Try before you buy, with all your kit on inc back protector if you usually wear one.
+1 for Kreiga. Had an R35 for about 5 years now. Bullet-proof, comfy, good capacity. Not waterproof though, comes with a waterproof liner for laptops, docs etc but anything else you need to keep dry (e.g. clothes on tour) needs to be wrapped in plastic bags.
Recommended. I think I paid about £75 but as I said, that was some time ago.
