Waterproof Duffel

Guys, a friend of mine in COG just let me know about this deal. He's been using this for years on many a camping trip, holds a ton of stuff, etc. I'm going to pick one up, thought others might be interested as well.

I've got the same bag. It's well made, and fits pretty well on the bike. I have tested it on a long trip and it worked great. I had a full set of extra gear in it (including a helmet) and had room for more. I did NOT test it's waterproofness on that trip; nothing I see on it makes me question if it will stay dry though.

Even cheaper now than when I bought mine. Wonder if they have the smaller one still ...

I followed your link yesterday and was shocked at the price, I've been looking for a waterproof duffel for a while and the prices were much higher. I just went there to order and noticed the clause at the bottom of the info box:

"We apologize for the inconvenience, this item is currently unavailable"

So they apparently run sales on items they don't have. . .

If all we are doing is looking for something waterproof to strap to the back seat, what about something like this instead:

http://www.amazon.com/Sea-Summit-Riv...973410&sr=1-24

Waterproof, rolls up small when not in use, 64 liter capacity, $41 w/ free 2-day shipping. Some peeps say they're even good for use as bear bags to keep your food. *shrugs*

Waterproof

I have used this one on my bike for 3 years now. It has worked well and relatively cheap. Cabelas and OUtdoorWorld have similar ites so whichever is closer to you might be a place to look at.

I have this one and swear by it. I use it to protect my DSLR when I am canoeing or kayaking. Works like a charm. I can and have strapped it to my Givi E52 Rack as well (not with my camera on board . I really want a duffel too.

Great price but too large for my bike packing. I use Ortlieb from Aerostitch Rider Wearhouse in small 10"x19" and large 14"x24" sizes. These side opening duffles are cheap enough even from Aerostitch you can afford exactly the sizes you want.
But thanks anyway for the link.

I have that one. DO NOT put anything in it that can't get wet if it's going to be exposed to the weather. It IS NOT waterproof.

I've have a no-name waterproof roll bag like ducman posted. Its performed great on several trips on my last bike, and several overnighters on this bike too. Mines been in the rain a bunch, but never leaked. It cost like $15-$20 at the time. Just strap or bungee it down back there and it hold a bunch of stuff. I keep my tent, roll mat, sleeping bag, and a few other things in there and its a nice support to lean your lower back against on a long trip. The rest of my stuff goes in my top box and tank bag. Gets me by great on a 2500-3000 mile trip easily. I'd love side cases like most people, but even when I get them, I'll still probably keep mine back there for the added lower back support
