Product Description


Sometimes the best ideas are the simplest. Like this pair completely waterproof throw-over soft saddlebags: they are made of the same PVC materials and use the same sealing system found on heavy-duty dry bags. The easy loading top entry design rolls over and clips at both ends for a completely waterproof seal. Each bag’s lower leading end is cut away for generous passenger leg clearance. The bikeside has a full width Thermo-molded pad to protect paint and bodywork. All webbing and hardware is top grade. Inside are several carefully designed polypropylene stiffener panels as well as a handy organizer pocket, and at the rear of each bag is a Scotchlite™ reflective area.

Dry Bag Saddlebags are short enough to fit ahead of the rear turn signals on all motorcycles and are ideal for use on dual sport or sport machines. You won’t find frivolous details here, just intelligent and functional bags that won’t stick out too far yet will easily hold enough for a weekend camping trip. Totally waterproof. Easy to install and quick to put on or remove. Black or yellow. 15"×13"×8" each with 3173 cu. in. combined volume.

Ugly, but they workReview by Alex
Good- These things are simply waterproof. The interior is a nice, cubic shape so lots of things fit easily. They're rugged and put up with abuse (I've scraped them on walls). They've got enough give to be able to squeeze in places you couldn't get a bike with hard bags into

Not so good- It took me several tries to get them to fit my SV 650 without moving around or cramping the passenger. They're really unattractive. Now I ride a V-strom so it doesn't matter.

Mine are around 8 years old and look 80. Still work fine.

When it Must Stay DryReview by Keith
These bags are very well made and keep your kit totally dry. However, they look a bit "pragmatic" (the soft luggage version of aluminum panniers) and will leak if they are over-packed. An excellent choice for adventure riders who don't want their leg trapped under hard saddlebags when riding agressively. (Posted on 9/24/09)
great waterproofing but not for every bikeReview by Russell
These really keep the inside dry. As an earlier review noted, they are not attractive, but I like that the yellow ones allow you to increase your visibility. In the end, they did not work out for me because I wanted to use them on a Ninja and without struts or other solid supports on the sides, these bags would not stay off the rear tire.

These are waterproof. They may not be as quick to get into as the non waterproof bags but I needed the waterproof. I wish there were more choices in waterproof luggage. As one person said, once you figure out the straps all goes on OK. I ride a cruiser long distances, they look good enough for me. I am after practical not cool. (Posted on 5/5/09)

these bags are awesome. i have a triumph speed four and they fit perfect. they fit right above my exhaust and right in front of my turn signals. even with a passenger there is foot room on the passenger footpegs. i can fit a two person tent, camping stove, sleeping bag, shoes, hygene items, and cloths with canned food in both bags. when emptied i can fit 3 cases of beer in both bags with room left. they hook up easily with some straps that click on and they have yet to shift while riding. they are completely waterproof and
would recommend them to anyone. (Posted on 3/6/09)
If you are image-concious...Review by Richard Reed
If you are image-concious and need aerodyanmic luggage that matches your custom paint, these aren't for you. If you want somethign that flat-ass works, here they be. I have to imagine that every time Andy Goldfine sees one of his shippers packing a set of these he gets a big smile on his face as he knows one more rider is going to be very happy. Everything about theses bags in the catalog is true and then some. Mine have been to the Arctic, to Mexico, both Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and a whole lotta places in between. They've been on KLR's, a Harley FXR, an old Yamaha XS650, and two vintage Ninjas. Easy to mount, stable, water-proof, and HIGHLY abrasion proof (yes, I found this out the hard way). The backing pads will indeed scuff up plastic body work, but just add some clear vinyl (or if you are of the cheapskate persuasion, shelf paper from Wal-Mart) to the plastic and no worries.

I bought these for a GS550L, and they are a great fit for that bike. They are very good quality, and carry a lot - that two twelve pack thing is for real...The directions have no words and the pictures are not terribly clear - can't be appropriate for all possible bikes with a generic picture - but common sense will get you through, no problem. Get these. (Posted on 7/29/08)

Worked great for me. Excellent for rented bikes where you never know what you will have until you rent one. Managed to fit them to all types and sizes of bikes (Thailand). (Posted on 7/16/08)

Great bags. I got rained on and my stuff was dry as a bone. Read the instructions though, man there are straps EVERYwhere! Sheesh. (Posted on 5/14/08)
I had been looking for ba...Review by Mark Dallner
I had been looking for bags for my BMW 650CS. When I priced out a third party system for hard bags... 1300+ then I found these over the seat type. They do have A LOT of straps. The ridged inserts are good! I had a set of over the seat bags the did not have those and it was bad unless they were fully pack.

There is plenty of room between the tail pipe and bag and I will be testing them out next week. So far, I like them.

And thanks to Judy for great service on ordering. I received the bags the next day at 9:30 AM! (Posted on 3/28/08)
