KLIM Releases All-New “Arsenal” Dual Sport Backpacks

New feature-loaded backpacks designed to meet the demands of off-road riders.

Published on 03.17.2022

Continuing to expand their lineup of riding bags, KLIM has released two new feature-loaded motorcycle backpacks―the Arsenal 15 and Arsenal 30. The new backpacks take a lot of the features of their most popular bag—the Nac Pak—and improves on them with particular focus on load compression, stability while riding, venting and ergonomic functionality.

The Arsenal 15 is a midsized backpack with a chest harness connected by a single glove-friendly push button and has a capacity of 14 liters. KLIM tested this pack extensively in trail riding conditions, on the backs of professional off-road racers, and even at the 4-day 2021 Sea to Sky Hard Enduro. The result is a comfortable pack designed to carry a day’s worth of supplies in an organized fashion, while keeping weight balanced and creating the best airflow possible across your back.

Rather than using elastic harness straps, which can wear out and require excessive tightening to keep secure, KLIM uses 4-point adjustable webbing straps across the Arsenal 15 chest harness. According to the Idaho-based brand, these can be fine-tuned to fit each rider, and negate the need for an added waist strap. Two pockets on the chest harness can fit a cell phone and snacks or other essentials.


The Arsenal 30 is a large-capacity backpack designed for riders carrying lots of supplies such as camera gear or camping gear. Highly adjustable shoulder straps and a waist belt help keep the pack secure. Further, the Arsenal 15 chest harness can be swapped to the Arsenal 30, and shoulder straps from the 30 can be swapped to the 15, allowing riders who own both packs to customize them as desired.

Both packs are designed with particular attention to temperature control in hot weather. The Arsenal 15 has an offset mesh back panel, bolstered by corrugated foam pillows, which creates exceptional airflow across the entire back. The Arsenal 30 uses large 3D mesh pillows and an open back panel to wick moisture and create airflow. Both packs use straps with 3D mesh to wick moisture.

When weather turns foul, both packs include waterproof seam-taped rain flys to keep contents dry. These are intuitively stored and easy to access without removing or rearranging any backpack contents.

To keep contents organized and secure, KLIM uses a number of useful features. For example, both Arsenal 30 side pockets are made of a stretch material, allowing them to fit a standard 21” front inner tube or a 32oz/1L fuel bottle in each side. Inside each pocket are hidden compression straps, which keep the pockets accessible even when everything is cinched down. The main compartment has four zipper heads, which allow access into the bottom and sides without unzipping the entire pack. The Arsenal 15 also uses particular compression strap placement that retains access and function of exterior pockets while keeping the load secure.

KLIM’s new backpacks are available now with an MSRP of $219 USD for the Arsenal 15 and $279 USD for the Arsenal 30. For more details visit
