2013 Great Basin System - Weights
An Aussie customer intent on slimming down his kit recently emailed asking what the Great Basin Saddlebag and optional components weigh. Here's the reply:
The weight of our products is of almost no consequence in relation to the weight of gear packed inside - our Great Basin Saddlebag system with all of the components is about 40 lbs (18+ kg) lighter than a typical luggage rack and hard panniers set up.
2012 Great Basin Saddlebag (including 5 Stuff Sacks, 1 Hot Springs Heat Shield) weighs 7 lbs. (3.18 kg)
Great Basin Dry Pods (set of 5) weigh 1.6 lbs (.73 kg)
Great Basin Stuff Sacks (now available separately as a set of 5 - NOT included with 2013 Great Basin Saddlebag) weigh 1.5 lbs (.68 kg)
2013 Great Basin Saddlebag (including 1 Hot Springs Heat Shield) weighs 5 lbs (2.27 kg)
Great Basin Dry Bag weighs 1 lb (.45 kg)
