another thumbs up for a great bit of kit.

I've read of a few people that didn't manage to get the hang of the straps and never felt that it was secure, I have no idea what the hell they were doing wrong because mine is always solid and irs been used on several different bikes.

I'm not sure what the Kreiga US30 dry bag is exactly, but I was put on to the Ortlieb fully waterproof roll bags a few years back, and have found them very waterproof.

You have to bungee them to the back of the bikes saddle or similar position, but they do stay wet and make taking your stuff of the bike very easy.

If I've got the wrong end of the stick apologies, just trying to add some more info :-)

Rok Straps are very good for putting anything on your bike. They can hold 50kg !

Can't speak for the 30 ltr bag but I have a Kriega 20 and its is very well made (never seen anything better) and totally waterproof. I am sure the 30 ltr will be the same. Straps are a bit of a faff but never had problems securing the bag to the bike.

The inner waterproof bag does develop some black fungus on it if left on the bike in the damp. Which can be a problem if on tour for a while. If used as a tail pack then the straps are a pain especially if the bag is off the bike. easy to loose the US straps.

Hi Linnet,

I have my Tiger set up for traveling with a set of Wolfman Expedition Saddle Bags, a Rapid Transit tank bag and a Kriega 30 Dry Bag.  The Kriega I mount on the seat, just behind me.  This set-up works well for me, the weight distribution is good and the entire kit strays is place.  I am pleased with the Kriega bag.  It has kept my gear dry in wet weather and the 30 liter size is ample for my needs.  When not having to pack for a long trip, I often take just the Kriega and the tank bag.  This allows me to bring everything I need for most one or two day rides.  The mounting straps, for the Kriega, run under the rear seat.  I leave those straps mounted and it only takes a couple of minutes to attach or detach the dry bag.
