Loving the look of these new bags!

With the release of the Monarch Pass bags, are the Tetons being discontinued?

We are not sure exactly when they will be ready...stay tuned.
I am quite interested in these bags, any word yet on the waterproof liners? Thanks.

Wolfman your web site shows these are 9 liters, instead of 19.
I like the looks of these bags but you probably cant make a zipper top totally waterproof, a cover might keep the rain out but a dump in river or mud hole won't. Keep your stuff on light weight dry bags or clear ziplocks and dont worry about the covers.

These look really great. Im considering the rocky mountain setup, but i just don't need something so big and the option of adding a rolie to increase capacity seems great. I'd love to see a waterproof liner as mentioned above and seen in the rocky Mountain bags.. Any eta on the liners?

Bummer, but happy to see you coming out with even more products I'm on the fence about these or the Rocky Mountain (can't get past the price to be honest), can you comment on whether there are even more choices in saddlebags coming down the pike?

Also, how water resistant are the Ex-T sacks? If the bags themselves were treated with something like Scotchguard from new, and the Ex-T bags were used, would gear stay mostly dry in anything but torrential? Seems like a nice setup.

Just get a couple of dry-bags like these:
http://www.amazon.com/SealLine-Storm...MXCPN4ZX&psc=1

Or, if you want the tie-down loops, these:
http://www.amazon.com/Sea-Summit-Riv...alline+dry+bag

Each saddle bag would hold 2 of the 8-10L bags, or one 20L bag (2 10L Storm Sacks from the first link per saddle bag would probably fit best based on the dimensions).

Looking at the EX-T bags, they're not going to be 100% waterproof because of the closure system, even if the material itself is.

Yeah. Well, I ordered the bags. Once they get here, I'll take one down to REI and just mix n match until I find some dry bags that are the right size/dimensions. I thought about buying the ex-t bags, since they'll likely fit correctly, thus not losing space due to funny sized bags, but I think this will work fine.
I sure wish Wolfman just had the liners available. hint, hint, hint.

Pictures soon on my Tiger 800XC

I'll be looking forward to the pics! Let me know which ones fit best. I got my racks and the Hoops for my Tiger 800 for now (along w/ the 50L Triumph bag), but am trying to decide between these or a pair of the larger Rocky Mountain bags for when I need to pack more.

Liners are in the works...and lmychajluk is correct the EXT stuff sacks would not be a good waterproof option. REI is a good place to find waterproof stuff sacks for this stuff, I have used them myself many times. Thanks for continuing to push us nicely

I received my Monarch Pass bags a few days ago. Now, I'm just waiting for the release of the racks for the CRF250L.
