Hi there Isaeve,

I am pleased to confirm that the QUADLOC harness system is just as comfortable for women as it is for men. The chest pad actually sits centrally on the sternum, which avoids the more delicate areas of the female upper torso. The pre-formed shape of the straps also prevents them cutting into the sensitive tissue in or around the outer pectoral / underarm area, where traditional backpacks generally cause discomfort for lady riders.

Added to this, the Hydro-3 feels almost weightless when it is on and puts very little pressure on the harness, regardless of body shape.


All the best,



Michael

Great and... Can we move the «Hydrofusion insulated big bore drink tube» to the left side (I am left-handed) ?

Thanks!

Yes, the tube can be set up on either side and (per my wife) the Kriega packs are comfortable.

Speaking of the Hydro 3, and apologies if you think this sounds really, uhh, frugal, but, I already have the bladder that I bought for my R20. Is it possible to purchase the Hydro 3, WITHOUT, the bladder to save a few pennies?

Looks like my adopted homeland (frugal New England) is rubbing off

Hi levain!

Great to hear from you again.The hydration system in the Hydro-3 is the same as the ones we offer separately for the backpacks. The Hydro-3 comes ready assembled, with the hydration system in, but happy to strip one out for you and send just the pack and Velcro, so you can minus $49 from the price.

Shoot me a PM with your email address, shipping address and any other requests and I'll get it on the way to you.


Cheers,



Michael

P.S. I'm not only an Englishman, but a Yorkshireman too, which leads to being the butt of jokes such as this:

A Yorkshireman comes in from work, has his dinner, and declares,

"Reet Gladys, put thee coyt [coat] on."

"Oooh where's tha' tekkin us?", asks Gladys.

"I'm not tekkin thee anywhere, lass! I'm off to t'pub and turnin' t'heating off!"

Micheal;

Quite taking credit for my Scottish heritage jokes!

And if this truly was the case, you would be charging levian EXTRA to remove the Hydro 3 bladder!

Cheers

Fair point. But allegedly a Yorkshireman is a Scot with all the generosity removed.

1190ness

Having relatively recently bought myself a 990, I really didn't want to like this bike... But she sho' does look purty wearing our gear:


Overlander 60 with US-30 on the tail and US-5 on the Tank.


Overlander 60 with optional RotopaX and US-5 on the Tank.


UScombo70 on the tail and US-10 on the Tank.



... DAMNIT!

Security?

Hey Kriega,

has any thought been given to how to secure an overlander to the rack? I am thinking of using this system on a KTM 1190 Adventure R. However I want to make sure that my stuff is still on the bike after I get back to it after lunch/coffee breaks while I am travelling. At the end of the day for the hotel, I can dismount the system and carry it into the room. However what about those times when the bike is in the open and it isn't feasible for one to take the units with one?

Being soft bags, securing the contents is also an issue, but that is an issue with all soft bags.

Cheers,

M
