Wolfman went all out to create the new Expedition Dry Saddlebags. We designed these bags to be durable and 100% waterproof, for the most adventurous and aggressive riders around. We started with burly 22 ounce and 34 ounce vinyl, and used cutting edge Radio Frequency technology for completely sealed seams. Next, we developed an ultra-stable mounting system. These sturdy bags attach to our proprietary Wolfman Side Racks with what is possibly the easiest mounting system available.
Select For-Wolfman rack if you have a Wolfman rack. Select Any Rack if you have another rack, to include a special mounting kit to help fit on any rack. Select Throw over to use without a rack or with any rack and your own mount gear.
For input on the design, Wolfman called on friend Ned Suesse from the Dual Sport Riding Techniques DVDs. Ned is a leader in his field and gave expert beta advice on the bag design. We were looking at riding extremes, and early field testing was geared towards the ultra-aggressive adventure rider. Ultimately though, the functional simplicity of the bag-rack system works for everyone.
These Saddle Bags have two straps over the seat and each bag attaches to the Wolfman Side Rack with 4 points for maximum hold. The mounting straps double as compression straps to keep the load attached and tight. During testing we saw that once the bags were attached to the racks, they were attached so securely that we could have dragged the bike by the bags. Our mission was to create a functional, sturdy and quick release Saddle bag system that will act as one with bike and rider. No loose moving bags here!
We use an internal Butterfly stiffener, stiff back, bottom and front, which helps the bag retain shape and allows the load to be compressed tightly. A replaceable (!) non-skid rubber pad (made from recycled tires - how cool is that?) on the bike-side of the bag prevents excessive bag movement and protects the bag from vibration abrasion.
Saddle bags are sold as a pair. Wolfman Side Racks sold separately.
