Calling all commuters and weekend warriors – your ultimate Kriega backpack has arrived

Need a bombproof and waterproof motorcycle-specific backpack with enough storage space to carry a laptop or full-face helmet? Meet the all-new Max 28 expandable backpack from Kriega.

Priced at $385, the Max 28 is a 28-litre, three-section urban load-lugger designed for two-wheeled commuters and weekend warriors and comes packed with real-world practicality. How so? It’s all in the name with a clever expansion function that allows it to grow from 22 to 28L by simply unzipping it. Now you can safely stash your full-face helmet. Boom.

The waterproof section features a roll-top closure for full protection from Mother Nature’s tears and sneezes. That’s where you can secure a 14-inch laptop or any sensitive equipment that you need to keep dry.

A third section up front folds down to expose a nifty organiser pocket for quick access to small, everyday essentials. In other words, this bag will comfortably swallow everything you need for a big day at the office or a big overnight trip.

The Max 28 expandable backpack features a light version of Kriega’s proprietary Quadloc harness system as found on all its backpacks, which means it takes the weight off your back and shoulders and redistributes it to your chest and torso for all-day riding comfort, even with heavy loads. There’s also a removable waist strap for added stability.

As with all Kriega products, the Max 28 expandable backpack comes with an unmatched 10-year warranty.
