100% waterproof tailpack which also fits to Hydro 3, R15, R20, R25, R30 and R35, increasing capacity by 5 litres.
The US-5 tailpack is designed to fit most race-rep style seat pads. The pack is easily attached / removed by 4 x quick-release alloy hooks. No extra bungees or covers are needed. The US-5 can also be used as a tankbag with the optional TANK product. Also can be used an offroad fender pack with the bolt-on loops included (see Fitting).
2 x US-5s can be bolted to the rear fender/side panels to provide 10-litres of storage without compromising the overall seat-height. Extremely effective solution for carrying heavy tools on the trail (even better when used with a Kriega tool-roll, see link below). Packs can be put on either way(zip or mesh pocket) and are easily removed via the 2 x hook straps. NB always use the strap tidy components to prevent web creep.

Post 2014 US5 packs fit with alloy hooks and have never been easier or quicker to take on and off, with no loose straps left on the bike. The ultra secure subframe fitting allows tailpack combinations of up to 90-litres and is particularly suitable for bolt-on seat pads and traditional one-piece seats (4 x web loops attach to the subframe and exit at the seat edge) Attach the 4 x alloy hooks to the loops and compress the pack down with the Q/R adjusters. Secure the loose strap ends with the web tidy components and you're ready to go. NB - US-packs can be mounted inline or across the seat.
The US5 can also attach to Kriega backpacks and TANK with either the old style fitting straps or with the new alloy hooks. The US5 also includes 2 x bolt-on Hypalon loops to fit a dirtbike fender. For road bikes the standard 4 x subframe loops are used under the seat. See individual product pages for full fitting instructions.
Tank fitting kit converts US-5 into a 100% waterproof tankbag (see TANK link below).

Been using my US-5 for several months now as an alternative to using my R3 (or my R15....or my US-20 ;) ). Perfect for holding phone, wallets and keys when out on a ride.
Slight bit of faffing when taking off / putting on at a stop but in no way proportionate to the amount of awesome it provides or freedom of "not carrying gear on your person".
Only thing I'd like to see/change.....a harness (think Tank bag harness) for converting to a leg/hip style bag. Or for Kriega to make a dedicated leg bag. :D
Would definitely recommend.

Bought this to use with the Hydro-3.
As a keen walker, I wanted something that wasn't too bulky for when you don't need a full rucksack.
Together, they work a treat; very well made, easy to use, extremely comfortable and just right for wallets, phones, hat, gloves etc.
The bonus is the hyro pack in the Hydro-3 which means you don't have to faff about with drinks bottles!

.....but the straps could do with being longer or for optional longer ones. Everything inside stayed completely dry for a weeks wet rip.

Hi All. I did,t test it yet but the bag looks very well made and hopefully water resistant ( I live in Ireland). the finitures are top knotch.
I will definetely buy other Kriega products.
hey Kriega why don't you add a couple of stickers to your products or a gadget ??
carefull: the pictures makes it look sligtly bigger. all you could fit inside is a big smartphone, wallet, a gps and a packet of sigarettes (more or less).

bought this little US-5 bag for storing maps, small items like booklet, pen and other stuff without the need of opening the bigger Kriega bags, just perfect to keep this things at hand if needed.
again thanks for your swift delivery.

Purchased this to go on my new Triumph Explorer and it fits really well. With the tank being so tall and having great lines I didn't want to obstruct my view or ruin the looks. It holds wallets, phones and other bits and pieces easily and no doubt more. My only gripe id its connection to the harness. I would prefer a Connector straps and short compression straps that would make it easier to expand and remove.
That aside its another quality Kriega product, I have had some excellent customer services from Kriega adapting my US 20 to loops for the new hooks system ....what more could you ask for. I've stayed with soft luggage on my bike!!

Like another reviewer, I used this on a recent trip combined with the Kriega Tank harness as a mini tank bag. Just over 2000 miles in Europe over a weekend taking in 7 countries this Drybag was home to wallet, passport, and avarious other bits that I didn't want in my pockets or stuffed into the other drybags on the back of the bike. We had well over 250 miles in torrential rain too and this US-5 Drybag never let me down. I had a cobbled together SatNav from my car connected in the bag to a 12v attachment that remained completely dry and untouched - and this is on a triumph speed triple so naked to the elements! Would recommend to anyone looking, get one!
