Nelson Rigg introduces their 100% Waterproof Survivor Edition Adventure Dry Bags. All are made from a high quality 24oz rugged Tarpaulin PVC that’s specially coated for strength and to help prevent slipping and marking. These bags were designed to work with factory and aftermarket tail racks, seats, and saddlebag racks on most popular Adventure and Dual Sport bikes. All bags feature a “no hassle” LIFETIME warranty, electronically heat welded seams and an air tight roll closure system which ensures that no water enters the bag even in the harshest of downpours.

Mounting the duffle bags is a breeze utilizing anodized heavy duty quick release cam buckles and strong nylon soft tie webbing and can be mounted across or along the seat or tail section. Hi-Visibility reflective accents are integrated into the bags compression straps that also easily adjust to the volume of the bags contents, keeping it snug and compact. Strong D-rings allow more mounting options and provide mounting points for additional items you may want to bring with you. The saddlebags have our popular universal mounting system but also have the ability to individually mount to most OE and aftermarket saddlebag racks utilizing strong top and bottom compression straps.

Extreme Adventure riders will have two sizes to choose from. A Medium Bag has an approximate capacity of 39 liters while the Large Bag has a mammoth 71 liter capacity. The Survivor Edition Dry Bags come in three exciting colors, Hi-Visibility Yellow, Orange and Black.

Suggested Retail Price;

Survivor Dry Bag – Medium $74.95 Dimensions 20”L x 10”W x 12”H 40L Approx. Capacity
Survivor Dry Bag – Large $109.95 Dimensions 26”L x 12”W x 14”H 71 Approx. Capacity

Here are the pics I mentioned, taken just now. I haven't gone for a ride yet or really figured out the best way to mount them, but this gives an idea. I have the straps running under the seat so that they do not bug the passenger but when I go on a solo trip I will probably run the straps over the seat to reduce stress on the straps.
Hope this helps someone!

Think twice about buying the Adventure bags!

Just thought I'd caution anyone considering the Nelsen-Rigg Adventure Dry saddle bags and tail pack. I bought both and used them for 3 overnight trips and already three plastic clips have failed (2 on the tail pack and one on the saddle bags). For the record I wasn't over-packing or carrying bricks! Who knows what prolonged use would bring? I was disappointed because this is a clever design undermined by cheap plastic clips. Perhaps I got a 'bad batch', however, it seems to me that for another few bucks invested in steel or aluminum clips this product would be dynamite. Anyway, I can either return them to the retailer and await 4-8 weeks for a warranty assessment or pay the international shipping to return them to Nelsen Rigg to expedite the process - not exactly the 'hassle free lifetime warranty' they mention on the website.

Either way, I don't have a luggage system for awhile. Is anyone aware of a similar system with more robust clips??

We are sorry that you are having issues with the clips on both your saddlebags and duffle bag. This is defiantly not a common occurrence especially when you claim multiple buckles have broken on each bag in such a short use. We understand that you don’t agree with our warranty process and after speaking with Canada's Motorcycle it seems you also don't agree with theirs either. We will again email you so we can try and get this handled.
