Hey!

Is there any info from Kriega if they are thinking of coming out with a bit bigger version of their Outlander-30? Because 15L per side is a bit to small for my needs as my current panniers are approximately the same size and would like something bigger.

Thanks for your answer!

Michael,
Thanks for the quick shipment of the US-10's. They fit perfectly on the top of the GlobeScout 45L panniers on my 2014 GSA. Exactly what I was looking for. I'm a bag/gear junkie and the features/construction don't disappoint. The mounting system works great with the panniers and also on the Jesse's mounted on my '04GSA.

Going to sew up a shoulder strap and adapter. One of these will adapt to a great haul bag on the road. You don't happen to know who Kriega sources their side release buckles from do you?

Thanks...jim

just a general question to Mike or anyone running the Overlander 60s:
once you snug down the mounting and compression straps, how much 'leftover' strap is there and what do you do with it?
if there's one thing i hate is excess strap ends beating around on the highway..
if there's anything i hate almost as much, it's having to knot and unknot the loose ends every time i need to access a bag!

Kreiga includes small plastic hoops or clips that hold the strap ends. My US 20 has 2 on each tie down strap.

Tenere?

Could anyone tell me if the Overlander 60 System will fit on a 2014 Super Tenere ES? I do not believe the Touratech or Metal Mule racks fit on the bike.

Hey, mate!

I haven't heard anything thus far, but that's not to say it won't happen. That said, it will probably be an entirely new product given that they experimented with quite a few pack sizes and found that 15L was optimal for this type of minimalist set-up, with further capacity available in the form of supplementary US Drypacks fitted to fender via the Rack Loops included with the Overlander 30.

I do know Dom is working on quite a few things at the moment. I'm hoping to have a chat with him in the not too distant future and you folks will be the first to hear of any developments, just as soon as I do.


Cheers,



Michael

Glad they lived up to your high standards, Jim!

Kriega clips are top-of-the-line Fastex Acetal ITW Airloc moulded jobs, which retain their form and range of operation, while remaining pretty much impervious to degradation from extremes of temperature and chemicals / gasoline etc.

Lemme know if you need some and I'll be happy to mail over a few of whichever ones you specify.


Cheers,



Michael

Yep. What AteamNM said.

The compression straps are not overlong and even on maximum compression, can be tidied up by threading them through the included Strap Keepers. That said, you could always trim 'em if - for any reason - you needed to. Just seal the cut ends with a flame to prevent fraying.

Also, might be worth mentioning that the straps can be unthreaded and the direction reversed so the buckle is on the inside or outside edge of each pack, depending on preference, left / right handed operation etc.


Cheers,



Michael

Hello, mortal...

Hopefully the email which [I suspect] you sent and to which I responded to the other day cleared this up. But do let me know if you didn't get it, have any further questions, or it that just wasn't you.

Just in case any other Tenere ES owners are perusing this thread, the minute Touratech release their rack for the 2014 model, the Overlander 60 will snap right on. Other than that, if you can find - or fab up - racks with the 'hoop' dimensions shown in the image below, then you won't have to wait around.



Hoops themselves are available to purchase from TT.



Cheers,



Michael

Niiiiiiiiiice!

Thanks for the pics. Enjoy your rides with Kriega!

Thank you for the quick responses! I am going to contact Touratech and see when/if the model specific rack is coming out.

Oh... WHY

Why does Kriega make such great products? It's not healthy for my wallet I just received my new Hydro-3 and Kube pocket in the mail. Great pieces of kit.

Still in plastic

I have a couple of question though:
1. How do you clean your hydrapak blader?
2. Do you use only water in you bladder or do you use any of those sports drinks powders that mix with water to add some taste (and remove the plastic taste) or any other juice (squeezed lemon) or similar?

I use just water in mine, you can use sports drinks if you like, but any bladder will tend to get mouldy quicker.

Something like Alka Seltzer will clean the bladder/tube or put it in the freezer to help stop bacteria.

Cheers
