Kriega Overlander 60, a Revolutionary Soft Pannier System
text size: A- A+
Designed for the adventure-touring fans, the Kriega Overlander 60 brings the best of the two worlds. On one hand, it boasts the generous cargo loading capacity of traditional hard cases, and their watertight and dustproof resilience.
On the other hand, the Overlander 60 comes with the significantly reduced weight and crash-resisting character of soft bag systems. The Kriega Overlander 60 comes with 4 15-liter bags (0.53 cubic feet), and capable to accommodate quite a lot of gear. They are made in 1000 Denier Cordura which is impervious to crushing or dents, and cannot pop open. Washable waterproof liners are included.
The set also includes two Overlander ADV pannier platforms with secure clamps which can be accommodated on a wide variety of luggage racks. They are also easy to remove for when the going gets really tough, and can also accommodate other Kriega accessories, such as the Rotopax fuel and water canister holders.
With each Rotopax canister capable of housing 1 gallon of fluid (just under 4 liters), it's easy to understand how convenient the Kriega Overlander 60 system is. With a guarantee of 10 years, the Overlander 60 soft pannier system retails for $795 (€610). More details on the Kriega website.
