Sorry about the poor photographer.

Those really look awesome! Are they taller than most bags... always think the Wolfmans and such need to be taller!

I agree, which is why I contacted Brady. They are 24" tall, 14" wide, 7" deep.

So I am pointing at a pass through for rok straps or whatever you have to tie the bags against your rack.

Here's another shot of 3 pass throughs for the straps. Behind the H2O holder and the roll top straps.

Fuzzy, bad ass velcro over seat straps.

I asked if he could stiffen them, as I imagine they won't always be loaded for an adventure. His idea is pretty cool, and keeps them light. He made 2 internal pockets for me to put some plexi or whatever to give the bag shape, but would be a sweet map pocket.

Velcro top, makes it easier to keep together when you roll down a full load.

Shamless plug for Storm industries.

H2O holders fit a full size nalgene with room on top.

The retro reflective material is just as bright as any. You'll notice in previous pics the bags kind of stick out at the top on my bike. I had Brady not sew the roll top straps so close to the top. I wouldn't recommend this as it puts a lot of stress on that stiching, but I have a rack built into the seat on my bike, and I had no choice but to do that. I have yet to ride in the rain, but these were not expected to be waterproof. I'll buy some big dry bags to put inside. But I will say I went through, 5 or 6 six creeks that day at some speed. Enough to get my face wet, stuff inside the bags were dry.

I love them, simple solution to a lifetime of luggage farkling. A ton of pockets is overrated.

Got'm!

Hey there Brady -- a repeat offender checking in to thank you for your products -- my wife *loves* the custom embroidery on her Pelican Case liners, and we're both pretty stoked about the "hippo hands".

We'd like to try using a wash-in waterproofing on the hippo hands -- do you have any recommendations in that regard?

Thanks again for some great products.

I would recommend starting with a spray-on waterproof product. I mostly recommend this product because I have a fair amount of experience with it and have had good results as well.

I have not used a wash-in waterproof product yet.

If you decide to go the route of the wash-in, let me know the results.

I received my Kermit chair bag today... It looks great and the chair and leg extensions are already packed in the bag. It fits perfectly and there is enough room left over for a couple of items, like tent stakes and poles...

Thanks for the wonderful job and the speedy shipping! I'll be ordering some more things in the future!!! Keep up the good work!

Sounds good! I'll watch for it!

Thanks for the publicity too!

Sorry, not to be a pest, but you say "this product", but didn't specify a product.

Which product have you had good results with?

Thanks!

Sorry about that! Must have assumed everyone knew what was going on in my head.

I was referring to the spray on type. I've used it in many applications with very good results.

I recently ordered a long skinny tool duffel ( 14"x2.5" ) to fit in my DR toolbox. Let me know if you think the dimensions will make the zipper difficult to install or to use. I'm not opposed to just a wide velcro closure.

Got the order. Once I work up the build I'll take a look and see what will work. If I can get a zipper into it, I will. The diameter of the pouch is what would prevent me from being able to.

Thanks!
