Yo dude!

Not that I'm aware of but it could work. Any chance you could please post a pic of the spot and let me have the dimensions too? That way I'll be able to say for sure and also hopefully suggest a good way to attach it.


Cheers,



Michael

Count me in as a satisfied customer.

I have bought several pieces of Kriega gear and found each one to suit its purpose well. There have been one or two minor issues along the way but Michael Walshaw has provided simply marvelous after sales customer service.

No, I do not have any link or interest with Kriega, and the quality of product and service like this deserves to be commended.

Keep it up guys!

Here is a pic of the spot I was thinking of placing a bag. It's about 4.25" by about 8". It tapers towards the front. Think a US-5 could be mounted there?

Have there been any talk or thought on mounting an US30 on the Adv. Platform ?

Waiting on arrival of a R 25 back pack. My US 20 continues to get used and abused. Such a great bag for daily rides. Carry's tools, tube, air compressor, Frog Togs, jacket, gloves, hat, etc. Room for a few beers even in a cooler bag. Sits tight on the rear, water proof as, well, just bad ass.

Hi Casper,

There has been talk of this and it is technically possible, but we do not recommend it, due to the differing demands placed on pannier bags, compared to tail packs meaning that they need to be constructed entirely differently (e.g. heavy duty Cordura in place of flexible RipStop / Rhinotek; stiffened back panels; top opening roll closure and bolt-on fitment, rather than straps etc).

I wouldn't be at all surprised if a larger version of the Overlander 15 pannier bag (or an entirely new product along those lines) breaks cover at some point, but I don't have confirmation or info about it at this stage.

Sorry I can't be the bearer of better news.


All the best,



Michael

Thank you kindly, good sir!

Hmmmm... Honestly speaking, I'd say it can be done and could well work... But it wasn't designed for this application, so it really would be a case of just giving it a shot. That said, the US-5 is an extremely versatile piece of kit, so if it doesn't fit the bill as a crash bar bag, I'm sure you would easily find another spot (which you may not have previously considered) for it.


Cheers,



Michael

I do see that it would be a whole new product, as it would have to be a top load, and not a side load - but it would be nice if something like that would come.... more flexibility

Cheers,
Casper

With the harness maxed out to the three-dot setting, most folks can get a fit over body armor, but I have had a few requests like this, I'm also going to see if the lads in the UK can have some extension straps made up in the not too distant future.


Thanks for choosing Kriega!


Michael


Any chance they made up some extension straps? I got a new chest protector/neck brace setup and my Hydro-3 can no longer be buckled. I'd like to not have to buy another hydration setup as I quite like what I have now.

Not that I'm aware of, but I'll check and let you know if they have.

In the meantime, would you like me to send you some more webbing and clips to make one up yourself?


Cheers,




Michael

Yea, if they don't have something pre-made I'd gladly accept the parts to diy it instead.

Thanks to Mikes input, a Kriega US30 and two US20 (US70 combo) now sits on the ass of my XT660R. US20s very lightly packed on the pictures. Goes along well with the R15, Hydrapak, Stash and Kubes. If Kriega made houses, I would live in one of them.
