I really like how they can stay awash when not needed (day warms up) and you've still got to lash straps to use as needed.
The street-bike designed ones are very bulky and don't stash well.
Pics of the Bushwackers installed:

Construction material Q

I've been a fan and user of the GL Coyote since its introduction. I've owned both the original bombrpoof Cordura model with tiny zippers




and then the upgrade to the model made from Truckers Tarp and the long zipper.



and they always stood up to solid abuse. To me they were the best product out there for this type of use. I just landed back in the states and before leaving sold my old Coyote to a friend that needed it. I was ready to pick up another Coyote and then heard from a friend that also uses the Coyote. He saw the new 2013 model Coyote and claimed that the new material that is being utilized feels quite thin and flimsy in comparison to the prior model (truckers tarp) Coyotes material. My love for the Coyote is due to how bombproof they are and now have concern based on the observations of a riding bud. Can you please give me an insight and specs into the new construction material that is being used on the Coyote? Thanks heaps!!

You guys kill me sometimes! Our bags are made with the EXACT SAME materials they have ALWAYS been constructed from: 22 oz vinyl coated polyester (aka truckers tarp), reinforced with ballistic nylon, custom-woven ballistic webbing on attachment straps, Nylike webbing on compression straps, military-grade thread, the heaviest YKK zippers, military-spec fasteners - 100% Made In USA. AND backed by the industry's ONLY limited lifetime warranty.

No worries - I wrote that with a grin on my face! Here's the deal though: I've always been Giant Loop's pickiest customer. I used to be paid to write gear reviews - I'm super critical. I've learned a bunch about sewn goods since we started this little adventure almost five years ago. One lesson: You can't tell the quality of a textile from its "hand" (how it feels). In fact, two fabrics with the same identical specs can have total different qualities - such as tear resistance. That's why we test our materials thoroughly. Another lesson: the hand of fabrics that are otherwise identical varies slightly by color - the pigments affect the hand. So yellow has a slightly different hand than gray, for example. Weird huh?

Thanks for riding Giant Loop man - and keep asking questions. You all push us to deliver the best in the world.

Great suggestion! We're in the process of completely redesigning our humble website (I built it myself when we started in 2008 with just a single product). The new version should enable us to better organize more information - rather than a big long scrolling list like our rickety old website now. It's helpful to hear what information you all consider to be important. Stay tuned . . . We aim to continually improve. Cheers! (And I'll get the weight for you - don't remember off the top of my head. But I can tell you it's dozens of pounds lighter than racks and hard boxes!)

Sorry, the Dry Pods are sold as sets - and a great value with Made In USA quality and a limited lifetime warranty. But the outer Bomb Shell construction of our bags is so tough and water resistant that a Hefty bag is sufficient to keep your gear dry inside the shell.

Starting to hear back from riders! Here's one of the first round of pics and feedback:

"In short, they're fantastic. Great volume boasting 70 liters of waterproof (35 liters each side). you can add an additional 23 liters (1399 cubic inches) of 100% waterproof gear storage to your Siskiyou Panniers with the Great Basin Dry Bag.

"It was almost disappointingly painless to install. The are VERY adjustable."

"They accommodated my hard bag luggage rack and supply you with plenty of industrial Velcro to find the best attachment points for your bike and two exhaust heat shields to protect your investment."

"Install is pretty cut and dry and I was done in 10 or 15 minutes."

"An installation PDF is available on their website.
The bags are very well made and seem to be really durable.
I like the outside storage pockets which can hold extra fuel, water or tools."
