20-litre capacity, 100% waterproof tailpack which can be fitted directly to the seat-pad using the innovative new Kriega Hook straps - an improved mounting system that anchors the bag to the sub frame without the need for racks or any additional mounting hardware. The US-20 also comes equipped with removable shoulder and waist straps allowing it to be carried courier style as a satchel, on or off the bike.
The US-20 tailpack is designed to fit most race-rep style pillion pads or regular single seats (attachment straps included). The pack is easily attached/removed by 4 x quick-release buckles. No extra bungees or rain covers are needed.
To fit using the supplied hook straps remove bike seat and locate the best mounting areas on the rear subframe. It may be necessary to slot the internal plastic tray if no subframe metalwork is exposed. Attach the 4x 20mm web loops securely to high strength areas of the frame. The 20mm loops are adjustable in length. Refit the seat with the web loops poking out from underneath and complete any necessary final adjustments of the straps. Ensure the web is threaded back through the adjuster to lock-off the webbing (i.e. threaded through the plastic buckle three times). To fit the US-pack, hook the alloy hooks through the now installed web loops, place the pack on the seat and connect the top quick-release buckles and tension them and the bag on to the bike. Always use the 2 x strap keepers on the web to manage the loose ends. Please also ensure that the quick-release buckles are correctly 'clicked' home. With the Hook strap mounting system, the optional connector straps are not required.
NB - Some bikes already have web loops attached to the seat-pad/base. In this case we still recommend the fitting of the Kriega loops, as fitting to the subframe is far stronger than to the seat.
Tank fitting kit allows the US-20 to be used as a 100% waterproof tankbag. The tank kit can be found in the accessories section
The US-20 fits pefectly on top of alloy panniers. Fit the straps to the lid handles, rack or other points on the bike frame. The US-pack system is a fantastically versatile luggage solution for adding extra 100% waterproof storage.
Base anti-slip mesh also doubles as a pocket to store the shoulder & waist straps when the US-20 is attached to the bike. The shoulder strap connects to the large D-rings at each end of the pack and the waist strap connects to 2 fold away buckles at the corners of the mesh-pocket.
"This is a great sized unit, which I use in conjunction with my US10 pack (see review), particularly for stowing clothing when I go on longer off-road trips. I'm actually thinking of getting a second so I can stack the two (I think the US30 will be too big a footprint for the space I mount it). The white w/proof liner is a great idea, to make seeing inside easier. rnNo questions about it's waterproof and dust proof credibility (tested in both scenarios).rnI use it off-road on my R1200GSA, and have no doubts it could handle a slide down some gravel (mind you, the bike would have to be upside down, cause it sure wouldn't come off the mount straps!) - gonescratchin
"Used this as a tail bag last weekend on a 2 night 1500km ride. Fits to the back of my Z750 perfectly. Easy to remove and install each day, used the retaining straps (optional) overnight so i didn't need to remove the pillion seat. Great gear." - luk3
"Got this the other day after reading many reviews online for my SV650S. Needed a bit of room to chuck my gym clothes in when i go to uni and maybe a few shirts for when i want to get away for a few days. US20 looks fnatastic, holds everything nice and tight and keeps it bone dry. The inside is white so you can find everything easily. Also got a US10 to attach to the top of it and absolutely cannot fault either one of them!" - cradaxi
