Giant Loop Great Basin Saddlebag 4.6 5 12 12
bomber luggage, good price, slightly awkward to take on and off I took this bag on a 300 mile trip last week on a small dual sport of German origin, half of which was in pretty constant medium-heavy rain. I had two people's worth of stuff for an overnight, including a couple of meals, clothing, water, and spare gear. The bag was about full with that volume of stuff, which weighed around 40 lbs. (I'm guessing the weight entirely.) The bag attaches to the bike with five nylon straps passed through buckles. Once on, it's totally solid and very unlikely to move assuming you don't weight it wrong. It's a bit of a faff to get it on the bike, just because you have to pass a bunch of things through buckles. I may well modify the standard set up to have click-in clasps instead just to save time. If I'm going to go on a longer trip for a couple of weeks, I don't really want to spend 10 minutes a day messing with nylon buckles. Once riding, I totally forgot that I had it on the bike. I couldn't see it out of my mirrors, feel it behind me as I was moving around on the saddle, or notice the weight change the bike's handling. I've never experienced any of that with any other luggage. I do not have the dry pods and did get pretty well soaked. The contents of the bag did not. The bottom of the two lobes was wet, but the top hump part was dry. I don't think that's any guarantee, but in a fair amount of rain most of the bag seems to stay dry. I think the only way water is going to get in is through the seams, which are tight but not sealed. In general: I much prefer this to having hard luggage in the event of going down and not wanting to break my legs; I'm impressed by how much the bag can hold without feeling like it's on the bike whatsoever; I'm impressed by its unadvertised water resistance; I'm impressed by its totally bomber construction; I'm a little unimpressed by taking it on and off the bike, but I have ideas of how to fix that easily. Worth pointing out: I'm only guessing at durability, since I haven't had this that long. July 22, 2014
Love it. Awesom bag. I did two hard dirt ride on it, solid as a rock. Easy to remove from bike. July 14, 2014
Super duty Super duty that is for sure .I love the strap system, it was well thought out for serious off road. But way over priced. I got the orange one to match my KTM 690 enduro which was also way over priced, oh well better to live free. July 4, 2014
Brilliant/economical piece of kit I urgently needed a proper luggage system for my 660Z Tenere, but am financially quite constrained (i.e. I'm broke). After exhaustive research, these saddlebags proved to be the most cost-effective option available. They also appear to be the most practical, especially for the type of riding I want to get into. Revzilla offered them at a reasonable price, cheaper even than our local distributor here in Oz (we get so gouged here price-wise on everything). And that price was delivered! I ordered them on the Friday and they arrived at my home on the monday. Unbelievable! Revzilla's customer service was pretty good too, very knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. I've since used these bags, and must say that I'm very happy with them. They seem to be high quality items, and the included dry bags are a thoughtful and perfect way to keep things dry and organised. I was able to stuff a lot of gear into them. As my equipment list grows for ADV riding/camping, I like how I can expand my capacity but strapping stuff behind these saddlebags. I'm still working out a couple of the buckles, but that's just my own stupidity. The bags do affix to the bike securely, and the bike still handles well. I'm planning to get the Giant Loop dry bag and tank bag next (plus various other bits and pieces) as soon as I can afford them, and you can bet I'll be order ordering them from Revzilla. Outstanding product, outstanding supplier. Thank you and well done to both. May 21, 2014
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

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Joseph J: awesome luggage system for adventure riding. Glad to have it. No regrets. May 26, 2014
Paul S: Awesome and easy fit for my 1998 Triumph Tiger. Easy off too. May 2, 2014
Scott D: I chose this product for my Yamaha XT660Z Tenere after pretty extensive online research. They seem to be very well thought out, and the concept is simple and so logical. They also get pretty good reviews around the place. Additionally, I'm very constrained financially, and this option is far cheaper in comparison to all of the rack mounted offerings (even if I tried making my own). I bought it from Revzilla because they appear to be very professional and their pricing was competitive. May 1, 2014
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?

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
Reply to Sean Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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.

A shopper asked: In a quandary after reading tons of reviews on Great Basin and Coyote saddle bags. Specs/Capacity seem to vary from review to review and don't want to go too big or too small. Also wondering how these bags will sit on my bike (G650GS Sertao). I have a top rack with Rotopax setup which I want to keep in place. Will these bags (Great Basin and Coyote) be ok sitting on the pillion/passenger seat?.I made the little Mojave work and I love it for my day trips. Now looking for multi-day trip stuff (no camping ... I prefer hotel living) so wont be packing food, tents etc. Maybe an emergency sleeping bag for a nite on the beach if I cant find other accommodation. Any info would be great.
PS: I always buy from the Zilla guys ... service etc. is second to none!

Steve M: Great Basin fits good & snug on my Suzuki DR650. Base on each side is tied to passanger foot pegs... back top of bag is tied in three spots on back end of cargo rack. When stuffed, bag carries a ton, but this does take up all of the passenger and rack space. Hope this info is helpful... I've had it for a while & love it. Jul 1, 2014

r h: Loads of room and if you use compression bags you can pack even more. Tie downs longer then lockable panniers but very good priced solution. Plus good balance on the bike...I would recommend given your hotel plans as lots of room ... Jul 1, 2014

PETER B: David ... great pics. Yes I think this helped confirm that the GL Great Basin will fit and work well. My Sertao also sports an Altrider rack and Rotopax (tho the container mounts lengthways ... stupid design). Thanks for input. Jul 2, 2014

David D: I have an f800gs with altrider rack and rotopax. You can run Great Basin in pillion spot no problem. Check my pics here, especially the ones in March. Check out my pix at dirado dot net /f800gs Jul 1, 2014

Kimberly P: as long as you pack it evenly it will be fine has plenty of ways to secure it. just watch the exhaust.it will hold a lot if packed right it is just right for us. Yamaha 250 dual sport Jul 2, 2014
