If things change, let me know. We have an event happening on the 13th and I think you and your bike would be a big hit.

Funny....I was on another forum (not bike related at all) and was linked to some pics of your products as maybe being of interest to me. Same mate in the US who did so is looking at your set up for attaching an M4 to the left side of the tank...

Nah, as long as you made it for yourself. But, if you have a DR 400, I've finally got one to pattern. It's going in right after the ATV comes out.

Mike -- any options that you know of to hold a map on the TankVest?

There are several military issue map pouches that work with MOLLE, however, we're developing a map pouch/administrator pouch specifically designed for the Tank Vest. That is about 2 months out.

that's great news -- I've got a small, foldy MOLLE map pouch, but it doesn't lend itself to reading the map on the fly or easily at rest . . . . I'll sit down, hush up, and await your pouch.

thanks!

I have a DRZ400S with an IMS tank. I'd be happy to make a pattern for you if it would help. I also have the stock tank as well and can do that too.

DL1000 prototype version 1.1

DL1000 prototype version 1.1


There's a TON of real estate. Even though I've been involved since since the beginning, I'm still amazed at all the stuff I can fit on this thing, lol. I've tested it with and without pouches to 100 mph and it's as stable as you could ask for. In the near future I'll try and meet with Mike for some better pics, but for now here's a few "ok" cell phone pics to add to the tease.

The possibilities are endless...



3 grenade pouches, Mag light (3 D-cell), 2 misc medium pouches, double M4 mag pouch, double pistol mag pouch, first aid kit... and room to spare, while still leaving adequate space for my knee



4(!) grenade pouches, XL sustainment pouch, single M4 mag pouch, misc medium pouch... and the other side of the first aid kit
