Apologies for the delay in getting back to you.
To answer you question; Kriega doesn't make a bag specifically designed to accommodate a helmet. the packs are designed to perform when you need it the most i.e. while you are riding (and your helmet is being used). Making the packs bigger, or adding a helmet carrier is likely to compromise this performance. That said, depending on the size of your lid, it might be possible to fit it in an R35. I have a Large XD-4 and can't get it in, but Mrs. Kriega USA's Medium will. But that's with the peak removed.
And it would be quite a squeeze (depth-wise, at least) with a laptop in there.
That said, we do offer a superior helmet cover / carrier in the form of the US Skin:
This offers excellent protection, compared to standard helmet bags and comes complete with a short carry handle with plastic rings and longer shoulder straps to make toting your helmet around a little easier. It can be attached to a backpack pretty easily using a karabiner or similar. Even if it was carried separately, you could use it as your second piece of carry-on (in the US at least - not sure how many bags you're allowed in Oz). Bu
t this is not an official solution. Regardless
, I strongly
a backpack so big that it can handle swallow up an XD-4 and a laptop, would be a funny shape, not to mention a little unwieldy for riding with.
I hope this info helps, but please feel free to drop me a line if you would like any more detail or feel I can be of any further assistance at this stage.
