Re: Commuter back pack & cold/rain gear HELP

Yeah ive been trying to decide between kreiga or the icon squad ii. Cost is a factor but the bag being truly waterproof is the most important part to me so im leaning towards the kreiga. Also thinking of swapping my a star gear out for dainese. After looking at some photos of wrecks and the gear after im a little nervous to wear a star

Re: Commuter back pack & cold/rain gear HELP

I've got an Icon Squad 2 Milspec backpack (don't use the arm straps) cause it's convenient to have for getting on base and it's a decent bag; does the job for the most part. I'll use it every now and then if I need to carry some stuff around while riding too. Don't think it's waterproof though.

Edit: If I really need a dedicated bag for commuting, Kriega would be my first choice.

I have the squad II bag, I have been in some good rain and so far everything has been nice and dry, just could be good luck.
You can see the water beading on it when you take it off. Especially around the HI Vis areas
I also love the spare visor pocket, I need tinted in the mornings from the sun and I keep my clear in bag for nights.
