I require them to be 100% waterproof. I require them to store food, camping stuff and a laptop computer. Enough 'stuff' to survive camping out for, say, 7 days.
Answer depends on the bike and type of terrain you're riding. Obvoiusly for true off-road soft luggage protects you and the bike. I leave Wolfman Expeditions on my bike all the time to carry tools, first aid, heated jacket, water, etc. I'm contemplating getting a Great Basin for my camping stuff (camp-in-a-bag concept). Tent, sleeping bag, Exped pad, Helinox chair, jetboil packed and ready to go. Giant Loop stuff is not waterproof so you need to use dry bags as needed.
