Great solution for off road luggage. Tight to the bike, good capacity, tough. The perfect solution when you need to take luggage into rough goings. January 27, 2014
Good product Good product. Not sure if the plastic clips are the way to go, it's definitely easier to use but I'm not sure if in the long run it won't brake cause it is plastic January 20, 2014
A good alternative to hard cases I bought this bag as an interim solution for my F800GS for dual sport adventure rides. I had just sold my BMW Vario side cases, and went with this Giant Loop bag to buy time before throwing down the cash for a new set of more durable, off-road worthy side cases (i.e. Touratech). Mounting: Took a little bit of messing around, trying different positions and mounting points to find out where the bag fit the best. My preferred mounting position on the F800GS would have covered up the gas filler. I'd recommend giving yourself plenty of time to test fit before planning to leave for a multi-day trip. Size: I was pretty impressed with how much stuff I could fit in the bag. I put all my tools, tubes, and electric air pump in the left "leg". I put my Big Agnes air mattress and camp chair in the right "leg", and had plenty of room for clothes, sleeping bag, food, etc in the top portion. I have a small Nemo tent in its own dry bag that I strapped under the 3 buckle straps on the rear of the GL bag. Function: The material is really stiff when new, and working the zipper was a bit frustrating. Throughout my 5-day trip it seemed to be loosening up a bit, but it has a fairly long break-in period. It would be great if the bag was waterproof, but I also understand that would be a tall order to achieve with any kind of durability. I can say that the bike felt more compact and maneuverable with this bag versus the side cases. And I had no worries that I would break anything in low speed tip-overs. Overall, the bag works pretty well, but I think it would fit better and open/close easier on a narrower bike. I tried to place clear tape over my painted plastics in the high-wear areas, but after the 5-day trip the cordura had still worn the paint off in one area. Kind of a bummer. Ultimately, I will still be saving up for some nice hard cases for quicker access, higher security, and faster mounting/unmounting. December 31, 2013
Great product I hate having racks on my bike, so I was pretty limited in my choices of luggage systems. After much hand wringing I decided to go with the Great Basin from Giant Loop and have been really happy with the purchase. The bag goes on easily, does not move, and you hardly know its there when riding. Does not interfere with lane splitting, which is one of the reasons I didn't want a rack system. It also survived a couple of off-road dumps without ANY visible signs of damage. I wish it was waterproof, but a $16 waterproof stuff sack for my down bag takes care of that. November 18, 2013
Fits on a DL650, 2013 VStrom Just received this bag (quick, no hassle, free shipping with $15 Revzilla bucks... great job Revzilla!) for a seven day Southern Utah + Moab + wherever the road takes me kind of trip (google motoaway or motoidiot for ride reports). The bag is very sturdy. The material is a thick plastic coated fabric, with some very heavy cordura reinforcement along the bottom of the bag legs (I suppose to help protect the bag from falls or from sharp internally packed objects) the straps are very thick and there are ample cinch points and tie down points to attach extra bags/bottles/6packs or whatever else you might need to put on there. Best of all, the bag fits over the seat of 2013 VStrom- and connects easily to the passenger footpegs. I'm not into big, wide side boxes so these bags seem perfect. Light and tight. Check out the photos- I have a jetboil, REI campchair and my sleeping pad all in one leg of the bag. The other leg has all of my cold weather gear, a light jacket and some underwear- this leaves the big middle compartment open for my tent, wet gear and some freeze dried food- maybe a bottle of rum.I did just order the internal packing bags to help keep some order inside the bag but I may not even use them. A few things to be aware of so far: Getting all the straps, cinched and organized (they come with long tails- and a recommendation to trim them but I want to use this on my DR400 too so I'm not trimming) and the bag where you want it takes some time. Also, the zipper, since it's semicircular will bind a bit of the bag isn't full but it's still very rugged. In all, I'm happy with the bag. Additionally, I'm still figuring out the best way to load the bag, since it's shaped like a horseshoe it's kind of awkward putting things in it when it's off the bike. I can't give it any "excellent" ratings as far as performance because I haven't put it to the test yet... that happens Oct. 1. I will do a full review on my site once I return. September 23, 2013
Misleading video Check out the PHOTOS on this item to make sure you know what your getting. I didn't :( The video shows internal storage for sleeping bag....none. Internal storage for drink bottles.................................none. Alloy buckles all round..................two, the rest are plastic. Sealing compound to make it water proof...................none. Strapping sewn to top of bag to be able to attach lanyards etc....none. My mistake, but still disappointed. August 26, 2013
It's OK Install is easy and it does everything it promises to do. Holds in place VERY well too, and feels durable. I had a couple spills with mine already and you can't even tell. Something to keep in mind with this bag is that it's all one huge single compartment. It's not a downside, just something to plan around as you're packing. I also thing it's a bit overpriced, though all of the materials are pretty high quality and I'm sure it will last a long time. Also - This is definitely not waterproof, I had water in mine after riding through a mild thunderstorm. July 29, 2013
No need for a luggage rack to install. Giant Loop Great Basin bag fit perfectly on a '09 BMW G650 X country, without need for luggage racks. Holds all the items I need for an extended camping trip. Downside is the somewhat tedious access to the stored items once everything is loaded and tied down. Will be converting the straps to the passenger pegs with quick release buckles for smoother mounting and removal of the bag. Don't yet know how the material and zipper will hold up during heavy use. So far happy with the system. April 24, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Deborah P: I wanted a soft, light bag, easy to clean bag that can easily be put on and taken off my bike. Also, leaves enough room for an extra gear bag at top of bike. Apr 23, 2014
Leo B: Went round and round on this. Finally piicked the great basin and have been very happy with the decision. Very tough (multiple falls offroad in baja) very secure, and you hardly know its there. Awesome product. Lack of waterproofing is easily remedied with a dry bag or two. Apr 2, 2014
A shopper asked: Hi, I have a few questions,
are there any pods included, heat shield included, repair kit?
Jan 11, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
Brian S. H: The heat shield is included. There is a seam sealing kit but no repair kit. I believe a simple field repair kit could be assemblied with adhesive, fabric etc..
There are no pods included. I use simple stuff sacks, heavy duty garbage bags, ziplocks etc. due to low cost and versility for packing.
This is a versitile, well made product in my opinion. I have several bikes plus a snowmobile. Fits them all with little adjustment and no mounting brackets. I also like the weight forward on the passenger seat which leaves the rack free. The bag will mount to the rack for two up.

Armin F: There are three bags, two triangular ones that fit in the corners and a third square one a little bigger.

Bag comes with one heatshield .... if your bike has twin exhausts like my 990, you need to order an extra shield.

No repair kit, but the bag is really sturdy. Only thing you have to worry about is the straps coming loose during a ride and melting on the pipes.

Hope this helps.

Martin H: Liner bags are extra. No repair kit - not likely to need it given the bold quality and material quality. I don't recall re the heat shield as my bike's exhaust is well shielded.

Advisable to do a little seam sealing to keep the heaviest of rain from seeping into the interior. Used mine on a June trip up the Dempster Highway in the Yukon - co;d and wet. No problems.

George R: The heat shield is included but I ordered an extra one for the two cans on a KTM 990. There is no repair kit. Also, no pods. I found you can get any size you want at an EMS store. Light weight or heavy gauge waterproof for short money and you can even get different colors which may help finding what you want.

Joseph M: No pods but the kit does include the heat shield and repair kit. Did a big trip this July (Washington state to just south of Deadhorse) and myself and my bud used this bag from Giant Loop and worked flawlessly. I have a KTM 640 Adventure his is the 950 Adventure and this bag is SO much better than hard bags. Jan 12, 2014

Sean A: No pods and no repair kit (or if there was I've lost it), but there was a heat shield. I'm pretty sure the manual mentioned using a treatment to seal the seams, but the pods are a good idea for keeping things dry. But the bag is awesome and really comfortable to ride with. Jan 11, 2014

Dmitriy M: Mine had a heat shield included, that's it.

Not having pods wasn't a bit deal, honestly, I got some dry bags for clothes and it was more convenient to just have the other camping stuff floating around.
