Kriega US-30 mounted to the Cabelas bags using the Kriega hook straps hooked to the Cabelas compression straps. Perfect fit.

Fair question, think 2x2 gallon ziplock bags to put the tent in before ya put it in the dry bag. I also have a mesh bag that I strap to the dry bag to dry wet clothes during the day running down the road, would also work to dry the tent as well.

I'm using the Tatonka Barrel bag. Looks to be made out of the same stuff as the wolfman bags but the seams aren't sealed. It has straps that fold into a pockets so you can make it a back pack.

Duffel / Backpack?

I've been using a rectangular "boat bag" from Bass Pro Shop.
Not absolutely waterproof as I think a bit of water would eventually penetrate the zipper but for $20 it's been a very good deal.

Like someone mentioned earlier the idea of a dry duffel with backpack straps is appealing to me ... Has anyone else found one of those they like?

I have several canoe-type dry packs, but all are too large, have few tie-down points, and the knap-sack type shoulder straps look like they could be hazardous if allowed to flop around into the rear wheel. Also, they tend to be top-close, roll-top designs, which are hard to get to the bottom of without dumping everything out.

I tried a boating-type, side-close "waterproof" bag from Canadian Tire a few years ago. Was 1/2 price and too cheap to ignore. The zip-lock style closure leaked badly the very first (and only) trip; I returned it as soon as I got home.

I looked at several of the canoe bags posted earlier in this thread, but they don't cost less, and don't seem quite as well sorted for motorcycle use as the Wolfman product.

I bought a Wolfman Exp. Dry Duffel - size Small last Christmas, haven't used it yet as it is still wintry here. I like the side-close, rectangular shape and the well-designed tie down points. The shoulder-strap is removable, and probable won't be used.

I've got the large North Face camp duffle.

Tough bag, it's just a bit too big.

I'll get a medium at some point.

I've used Northface waterproof duffle backs and they leaked through the top zippers.

I'm now trying out the small and medium Wolfman expedition duffle bags.

Sealine, I've used it a few trips, seems like a good bag. I needed one 24" long was one of the only I could find that long.

Don't think Twisted Throttles bags been mentioned? I'm thinking of the 28L but they've got 38L too and they're designed to be used together as well.

Guess one reason could be shape of bag, if it's round/cylindrical the volume will be less than if rectangular/box shaped. Or they're just not very good at math

I have the side opening Ortleib. It's been good.



Tip if you are using this type of bag hard, especially with hard stuff inside, use some contact adhesive to glue a layer of something tough on the base where it sits on your rack so it doesn't rub through.

Cheers
Clint

Another option:

I used this one with a hard bottom when traveling two up on a GSA without a topcase:

For long offroad more dirt oriented rides I use a sealine with backpack straps for the reason Coho mentioned.

Thanks guys!

Has anyone tried this backpack style?

http://www.twistedthrottle.com/bags-...-hi-viz-yellow

at only 25L I don't think it's going to be big enough....
