Wolfman New 2013 Products-The Rocky Mountain Saddle Bags

Happy 2013 Everyone. We have been working a few new Products for 2013. They will be ready to ship February15th.

New for 2013 The Rocky Mountain Saddle Bags
What can we say about the most comprehensive saddle bags we have ever made? With nearly a year of R&D testing with a World Class R&D team, the Rocky Mountain Saddle Bags were created. We even went to Bolivia (Eric Grew up there) to test them! We used our popular Expedition Saddle Bag as the base and utilized the same mounting and compression system. The Rocky Mountain Saddle bags are cone shaped i.e. wider at the top than bottom to make packing them easier. The internal stiffeners are held in place with hook and loop and work to compress and secure the load (to Wolfman or other side racks) which make the bags become almost ridged and firm, not floppy. These bags are sewn in-house utilizing our own custom vinyl coated 1680 denier ballistics nylon fabric. The bags have a 35oz. vinyl bottom to compliment 22oz. vinyl back and front accents. Reflective striping also runs horizontally from front to back. Since these are sewn and not 100% waterproof, we have included our own Yellow 200D pu coated and seam taped waterproof liners. These are custom fit to make them easy in and out, while keeping contents dry. We incorporated D-Rings to the top and front of each bag so you can add a small or medium Rolie and/or fuel bottle holster for more versatility. We added a handle for easier maneuvering. The best part is the capacity with 32 liters in each bag with about 3 liters of float room depending on what you have packed. We took the whole process from concept, design and manufacturing very seriously, to make one of the finest large capacity soft saddle bags anywhere.

32 Liter Capacity with about 3 liters of float.

R&D paying off

Great looking system you have developed there, lets get some of these into the hands of riders that will put them to the test soon!

2013 Giant Loop gear vs 2013 Wolfman gear.. its a tough call but damn it's good to be an ADV rider right now, we are spoilt for choice compared to the options a decade ago.

look a lot like the Adventure Spec Magadan panniers. I was about ready to buy a set of those, but I may have to rethink that. A little cheaper. No slash proof kevlar though. How about provisions for PacSafe cables? Are bottle carriers part of the package?

You are close by so I can have a look at them I presume?

Here's a behind picture from Motostrano's website. It would be nice to see them in person. I'll have to make trip to go check them out.

The width is approx: 37"-38" wide. About 3"-4" wider than the handlebars.

I've got the same thoughts except I'm 4-hour journey away from the nearest Wolfman dealer. I do my fair share of escapading off into the wilderness but I commute on my bike too so security is important. Do they work with the PacSafe cables, & how immune are they to thieves with pocket knives? And, provided they're not ever stolen, how long can I expect them to hold up to wear and tear?
Sorry, never bought anything from Wolfman before so I've got nothing to hold these up next to. I've got your racks on the way in the mail though.

Also, we need more reviews & pictures. Quality aside these are some good lookin' bags!

If you're buying wolfman racks and ride off pavement, then I would get one or the other of their bag sets.

That said, they are not secure. If you really think someone is going to slash them to access the contents, and you need bags for commuting, then consider a set of Seahorse cases with padlocks for your commute - about $150 with mounting hardware. Then you would, in my opinion, have the best of all worlds.

While I would agree with your assessment, you know that a determined 10 year old can breech the security of damn near ANY bag, hard or soft, I trust.

The hard bags may offer an illustion of security, and it may slow down casual theives slightly more than a pac-safe protected soft bag would, slinging terms like secure as if they were absolutley is, perhaps, misleeading (Note Bene, I am not slagging anyone here, just pointing out an alternate view on the use of hard/soft bags).

For that matter, anyone could just steal the whole damn bike.

Locked hard cases are much more theft deterrent than soft bags. Period. Secure? Shit, I dunno. I have both, never lock anything, leave the keys in half the time, leave my helmet, tank bag, etc. I just don't ride my bike where it has to be 'secure', except when it's at home and then it's locked in a garage and the key is hidden.

The question was what bags he should get when he's already ordered Wolfman racks. Duh, that would be wolfman bags. already.

Thumb A great answer

As someone who has seen and touched these bags, I can say, with enthusiasm, that they take soft luggage through a whole new door. They are big and they are durable. The material is wonderful. And, as with the Expedition Dry Saddlebags, the mounting methods are reliable and sturdy.

Great work guys! These are sure to be a hit!!!
