Kriega and REV'IT! are two specialists in their respective fields, and when they join forces, the results are usually favorable. The four motorcycle backpacks developed by Kriega and REV'IT! illustrate this.
This Load H2O 22L is one of the two 'urban' models that the collaboration produces. Commuter gear in other words, or for a trip on asphalt roads. For the adventurous endurance rides, we gladly refer to the Arid H2O 9L or the Barren 18L H2O, while the Stack H2O 15L is more closely related to this Load H2O 22L.
The urban commute is mostly a visual element, by the way. Both this Load H2O 22L and the smaller Stack H2O look just a tad less aggressive or adventurous than their brothers, content-wise, the essence remains just as well preserved: getting essentials to their destination dry, fitting a Kriega Hydrabag where necessary, and all that in an ingenious way, courtesy of the Kriega Quadlock-Lite™ harness which is absolutely impressive.
The latter in particular is the differentiating factor here. Each of these four motorcycle backpacks that also bear the Kriega logo are of the "is it tied to my back or not?" type, and that's saying a lot. Of course, Kriega is a specialist for a reason. Just like REV'IT! The Kriega Quadlock-Lite™ harness is a piece of top technology. Chest, shoulders, and waist support the load, and the mesh panel on the back keeps it comfortable. By default, each strap is adjustable – of course - but pay extra attention to the possibility of adjusting the shoulder straps not only at the bottom but also at the top, on the shoulders. The idea behind this is that the chest strap can be positioned perfectly, regardless of body shape. The way in which this is done, without any surplus flapping around, is in three letters 'top'.
In terms of construction, the Load H2O offers a waterproof, large storage compartment for 18 liters storage with roll-up closure. The 4 liters extra on the front are in a two compartment with zipper and key hook. The Kriega Hydrabag, meanwhile, finds a place behind the waterproof space in the central storage compartment. This is not a motorcycle backpack that fits all your belongings, but you’ll discover the practical construction and versatility as you use the Load H2O. The fact that the first few weeks have a pleasant surprise in store for you every day makes us happy.
And actually we already were. Cheerful. Because the central storage space of roll-up closure in the Load H2O contains an extra storage compartment with zipper. Because of the key hook in the smaller front storage space, where you can store a few extra things. Because of the four adjustable straps that keep everything - regardless of the load - always compact. But mainly because of the comfort the Load H2O 22L provides on your back thanks to the Kriega Quadlock-Lite™ harness.
Luggage and backpack expert Kriega is pretty sure of itself and gives a 10-year warranty on all their products. The same applies for this cooperation between REV’IT! and Kriega, which now results in a faster change of motorcycle than we do of our rider backpack.
