A Love Letter to my Kriega US-30 Drypack

A Love Letter to my Kriega US-30 Drypack

My Kriega US-30 drypack has become a loyal riding companion. With it’s waterproofness, easy mounting and universal fit, it is an excellent piece of motorcycle luggage.

Over the course of your riding life you will buy things for your motorcycle that are kind of shrug-worthy. They’re like wallpaper – just something that exists in the background to do a job but you don’t pay it much mind.

Every once in a while though, something comes along and consistently proves it’s worth by making your life easier, better. Maybe it’s a pair of boots, a GPS, a particular model of glove that you’ve bought 10 times over. Whatever it is, it’s one of your go-to items that never lets you down.

Oh, Kriega – I Love You

In 2016, I bought a Kriega US-30 drypack. Based on what I’d read, it seemed like a good option for my two main rides – a KTM 690Enduro and a Triumph Bonneville.

Both bikes have a small footprint in the tail section and the bag’s fit was just right. Add to that a reasonable price point, simple universal mounting, quick on and off, modularity, and waterproofness and I had myself a winner.

When I came back from a trip to California this past February, it really hit me that my Kriega US-30 Drypack is a tried and true superstar champion.

Throwing on the back of a rental MT-07 with a week’s worth of stuff shoved in it was a snap. With its straightforward hook and loop mounting straps, it seems to fit on any bike. It’s proved durable, simple, and best of all reliable.

The Kriega is my ride or die bitch. I love this bag and the adventures that we’ve been on together. Can’t wait to get back out there and do some more exploring!
