New for 2017, we have introduce a completely new, all redesigned line of Adventure waterproof Saddlebags. These heavy duty bags offer improved functionality, durability and mounting at an affordable price. As all Rigg Gear dry bags, these saddlebags are made from a waterproof and durable 24oz Tarpaulin PVC featuring electronically heat welded seams. The UV coated outer material cleans easily and prevents slipping or marking. But what make these bags unique is that all mounting hardware are aircraft grade aluminum. That’s right, NO breakable plastic buckles. From the water tight roll closure to the compression straps that can also be used to mount our dry roll bags, they all use custom aluminum G-Hooks that lock the webbing in place. A removable stiffener and firm internal back plate allow the bags to hold their shape when empty. No more need to cut up small trash cans. Also included are 2 lightweight saddlebag liners to easily remove and pack contents and a pair replaceable foam pads that help protect the bags from contact with rack. Backed by a LIFETIME warranty, these saddlebags are available in Black (SE-3050-BLK), Yellow/Black (SE-3050-YEL) and can easily mounts to most Motorcycles, PWC, and snowmobile.

Main compartment measures: 15”L x 8”W x 14”H
Holds 27.53 Liters per side
MSRP $199.95/pair

For more information, please visit your local dealer or our website.

We strongly recommend using the top straps over the seat. You need the support to hold the bags up and not slide down the rack.
Can these bags be attached to oem or aftermarket pannier racks without having to use the over the seat straps?

Well.....I have an older set of your waterproof saddlebags. I don't like the seat straps, sooooo I cut them off, then used a sewing awl to make my own attachment points on my oem bag racks. I also added an internal stiffener and you are right, they do droop a bit, but have about 6K miles on them(including 10 days in Moab) with no further issues.











Anyway, I think if the attachment points for the rack were integrated into the back plate or stiffener it might work fine. Just thought i would throw it out there...;)

Very cool. I see you made the velcro support the bottom of the bag. We are already working on our 2018 line (crazy i know) and will consider a possible mounting option to the racks alone.

I have the older NR soft bags. I love the idea of moving to aluminum buckles, given the feedback I've heard on the list so far. I've yet to ride with my bags at all, but already have 2-3 overnight rides planned. Is it at all possible to purchase the aluminum buckles, so if the plastic buckles break, I can at least 'upgrade' them?
