You just explained why I'm having a hard getting too excited about something we know nothing about other than a few pictures of a black bag that looks vaguely like a GL

I've seen it. Up close and personal. Trust me, it's a lot different than a GL. Patience.........

Very interested. It looks like just the stuff for my 690R that is on it's way.
I want a totally waterproof bag. Yeah!
Looking forward to more pics.

Totally waterproof may be a bit of a stretch for any bag. I can tell you though that both my Great Basins were a PIA to zip up so the roll top design is welcomed.

Problem with gaining access to tools or anything else is that with a GL you have to unstrap and unbuckle everything, then fight the zipper.

Agreed, we don't have many details as of yet, but those three issues are what make this bag a huge improvement.

ALTRIDER: please provide detailed and high-resolution images so that we can see the quality of the materials and the construction. Perhaps some video in HD too?

So many companies selling products out there with tiny postage stamp-sized images. Proper marketing is key or else no one will know you have a quality product.

This is not for sale as of yet. Your seeing a pre-released product, usually to gain interest prior to the products actual release.

And don't worry, take a peek at the Altrider site and you will realize these guys know how to market. I'm confident you will get your high res vid/pics.

Without going through pages and pages, do we have a price yet by chance or is everyone still in hype mode

couple of posts above -- still in prototype mode.

Hype is different.

You are correct Sir!




Seriously not trying to drag the details out, but we're very close to answering all questions.

We're so stoked to share this that I couldn't resist!

One more session shooting the whole story - it'll be worth the effort.

So as well as a improvised ice bucket, the Cordura's abrasion resistance protects the dry bag material of the main horse shoe bag in a spill. Nicely thought out evolution of your original design. If the ice bucket part of the system gets torn up after a bad pavement slide or something, will you allow owner's of the system to just purchase that part without the horse shoe bag?

Great question. It'd be a whole lot cooler if the rig was available alacarte-especially after damage from a tumble.
