Thinking of buying this. Who has it? How do you like it?

I have one... I like it. Once filled with stuff it is very... "roll-like" I have seen other took kits that are more flat, but this works well, hold plenty of stuff.

I can't speak to the tool roll, but if it's built like any of the other Kreiga products I'm sure it will hold up well. Everything I've seen (& owned) from their shop has been thoughtfully engineered & beautifully executed. (& unfortunately priced accordingly)

Another positive recommendation. Had one for years. Outstanding.

I tried a tool roll and liked the way it keeps things organized; however it only fit in a pannier. I played around a bit a came up with this:
which rolls up into this:

It's a piece of leather chamois and the roll fits under my seat in the tool compartment.

I have one, and my only knock on it is the Velcro.

You can't roll it, but you can fold it. Fits in my GL Mojavi bag, with room to spare.

OK but bulky

They are well made but I find mine a bit bulky considering what you can get in them. This applies to all tool rolls I guess tho. You could probably pack everything much smaller if the items were loose in a container or a rag but then everything isn't as well laid out when you open it up.

Here some picks of mine

Yes it is a little bulky, I really like the way it keeps things organized doing parking lot maintenance, I feel I save a bit of time grabbing the right tool, verses digging through the pile, a big plus when it's 100F +.....

This is one by Ergodine.

I'm liking the Kriega Tool Roll also, here's what I currently have in the roll. I'm building this up for a R1200GSW and this is my first tool roll so I wouldn't use this as an example of what to carry. I'm taking the advice of others and plan to do all my maintenance using my on-bike kit to learn what I need (and what I don't need). I included my Great Harvest bread card for size reference, it's the size of a standard business card.

I'm liking the Wera Zyklop ratchets, the 1/4 works great as a bit driver. 3/8 doesn't quite fit under the elastic bands so i'm using a velcro band which works great. Flat handle ratchets like a Craftsman 3/8 fit perfectly.
