Either way, I bought some spacers, mounted the racks differently, and can keep the Overlander's. Which is great, cause once I saw them in person, I didn't want to send them back, especially after using the US 20/10/5 bags this weekend as a backpack.
Ahhhh... I see. Glad to hear you managed to find a workaround. Excited to see the system on a Scram' too!

(Sorry about the bad picture. As convenient as it is, the iPhone just doesn't make a good camera)
  • pair running shoes
  • pair shower shoes
  • toiletry bag
  • sleeping bag
  • neck pillow
  • insulated long sleeve shirt
  • PT shirt
  • Tan undershirt
  • 2 pairs of socks
  • 2 pairs of underwear
  • PT tracksuit: reflective pants and jacket
  • iPad with charging cable and headphones
  • Nook

All fits into here:


Simple, compact, and I even got a few compliments on the bags too.

I'm definitely sold on the brand!
Excellent. It may seem geeky and sad, but no matter how long I've been using the gear myself and how many photos of other riders' set-ups I've seen, I still get a kick out of 'dodgy' camera-phone pics of Kriega equipment packed and ready for action. So, thank you very much for taking the time to snap 'em and share!


... Which reminds me of this little beauty that another happy customer on tour in Afghanistan sent me a while back:
