interesting, I had not seen a price on those yet. Thanks

I'm not much of a fan of the clone/knock-off Nomad-rider stuff but they had traction because (IMO) the GL stuff is overpriced (even for made in USA). With this new product it seems there going in even more of the wrong direction. The Orliebs are $200. Hard to see how you can justify that price difference. Just my $0.02

you're editing your posts faster than I can reply

I have the ortliebs as well. It's for a different market plus you need some kind of racks.

I am not arguing about the price point. I was just answering the initial question

You do? Not according to the webpage.

"No additional rack adapter required."

The ones I have are the older design.without the thermomoulded rear side.

I didn't think you were.
I was referring to another ortlieb setup but i did look up the ones you mentioned. It says "no addition rack adapter required" indeed which implies you have racks but don't need an adaptor.
But I am not familier with these anyhow.

I can only attest of the quality and easy of use of the GL that I have been using.

I have a Coyote and a Mojavi. Good quality indeed and functionally excellent also. I did wear a hole through the underside of my Coyote on the TAT because I also had a PMB rear-rack, but that's not the fault of GL. You may well be correct on the rack adapter bit. So you have a pre-release of the GL Siskiyou bag?

I've ridden with them for several months.

I think the best option for soft bags out there are the Walter Colebatch designed Magadan Panniers!

I have Ortliebs that I use on my DR650 but they don't fit on the KTM racks.

I have the GL great basin and i don't think riding 2 up would be feasible for more that a short trip to the store, unless you are lilliputian. It is a nice bag though.

Wolfman Expedition Dry Saddle Bags
$219.99

EX-T Stuff Sacks (set of 4)
$36.99

TOTAL PRICE: $471.98-$560.98

Volume: 38 liters (19 liters each side)
Warranty: 1 Year on RF Welded Bags



Giant Loop Siskiyou Panniers
Volume: 70 liters (35 liters each side) ALMOST DOUBLE THE VOLUME
Included components: 2 waterproof inner bags, 2 laser-cut aluminum exhaust heat shields
Warranty: Lifetime of product for original purchaser against defects in materials and construction.
TOTAL PRICE: $649
Plus: No rack required. Strap it on and ride! Load is positioned closer to the center of the bike, maximizing performance and handling when carrying gear. Fewer parts to break. Multiple attachment points to secure additional bags. Easier access. Mesh internal pockets, exterior pockets large enough to carry 2 liters of fuel in each side. Ballistic nylon reinforcements in impact zones . . . .

Wait until you see them on a bike! These are the final protos in our EICMA 2012 booth - and the proud owner of the display Super Tenere, Raoul. The graphics look even better on the final product bags.

I've logged thousands of miles riding with the prototypes - on- and off-road. And yes, you can ride 2-up. My son has travel many miles with me testing the Siskiyou Panniers (Bend, OR to Cambria, CA for Horizons meeting 2011, Bend to Stevenson, WA + Dualsport Ride, Rally In The Gorge 2012). But he's young, light and tough. Most passengers would prefer to have a cushion strapped on top of the Siskiyous - which is easily done with Panniers's multiple lash points on top. That's a Fort Rock Top Case proto riding on top of the Siskiyou protos.

My friend Brad and I rode the Oregon Backcountry Discovery Route from Bend to Prospect, forest roads from Talent, OR to Klamath River Hwy, CA, northern CA's Lost Coast and all of CA Hwy 1 to Cambria in October for the HU Traveler's Meeting. Not since the original Giant Loop Saddlebag has any of our products been so thoroughly test and punished.
