Our 1050 Ballistic Cordura fabric is the toughest, most durable coated waterproof fabric known to the industry besides nylon-coated polyester. Our storm-flapped zippers have been tested in multi-day rainy deluges and my down bag has never gotten wet. Trust me, I've slept in a wet down bag before I came up with this design and the last thing I will let happen is that critical component getting wet. Same thing with my socks. If I'm going to be headed into sustained weather (rain, snow) I simply put my socks in a stuff sack inside the saddlebag and stuff my sleeping bag in a trash bag inside the saddlebag - I can also use the trash bag to store my boots and helmet outside my one-man tent and have done so more than a few times. Our kit is about making your bike ride as optimum as possible.
Best fit, smaller load = better ride.
