Crap. I just bought a GL bag for a two week Mexico trip on my 640A, and hopefully an August trip to Alaska (still waiting for my kitchen pass for that one)

It sounds like the Great Basin is the bag I'm going to need though...

Hey thanks wachs! There isn't any reason why I can't have BOTH bags is there?

Hey PackMule, no I haven't used it yet, as I am still out of the country. It is still in the shipping box on my workbech waiting for me to get home in two weeks and open it up (at least that is where Mrs. Ody told me she put it)

I think they've got a generous return policy....

Although this would be the better option.

Any chance the original bag will be made with waterproof fabric? I cross a lot of streams and don't want wet gear... I have hesitated to install mine and am reconsidering the bag. I have saddlebags that work well and have waterproof covers.

The bag looks like it is made well...

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.
I rode a bunch o water crossings in mexico and everything inside was dry ,but i put my socks in plastic bags and my sleping bag also ,prevent men =2, this bag is the only one the you no loose much performance went ridding with camping gear

Yes, streams like that...If they stay dry through that, I am good!!! I will mount them up and give a report. I may order some Aerostich dry sacks to go inside. I used dog packs for years in Mexico and the plastic bags inside to keep stuff dry took up at least 20% of the space. Thanks for the quick response!

Try these they don't take up any extra room.

Thanks LOUD AL... If they weren't from REI, I may give them a whirl. I would rather chew on broken glass and piss on an electric fence than give those greenies a dollar. They LOVE closing riding areas. I will explore the brand and see if I can buy them elsewhere. I did order an assortment of Aerostich waterproof bags and pouches today. I will report what fits and works... Thanks again guys!!!!

Check out any rafting supply place. I use the waterproof nylon bags that take up almost no extra room. They come in different sizes. Use them for both the bike and white water rafting as a second layer of protection inside the dry bags.
