Giant Loop Great Basin Saddlebag With Dry Pods
Easy to use
I use this on my KTM 690R and so far after 1000 miles I have had zero problems. The three drybags included are well sized and you could still fit another two of the smaller drybags inside the outer saddlebag. It fits the KTM well, you have to loosen the back strap and simply push the saddlebag forward every time you fuel up.
It could use some more attach points on the exterior for fuelbottles, etc. But for the price, no complaints!

High Quality Products Never Get Old
I purchased this Giant Loop Giant Basin Saddlebag with the Giant Loop Tank Bag Pro for a 8 day desert trip at Big Bend Ranch State Park. I was considering the Coyote saddlebag and the regular tank bag, but definitely glad I opted for the larger Great Basin—perfect for trip in the wilderness for more than 3 days. The quality is great, design is great and they're made to last. There's cheaper options, but remember you get what you pay for. If you're hard on gear like I am, I believe spending top dollar for bags that not only last longer, but also work on multiple bikes appealed to me.

I have GiantLoops BIG bag, the Ft. Rock, I think they, unfortunately, discontinued it, as it's FANTASTIC!!!!!! It holds 88L, I bought it because my wife not only has balance problems, she's on pain meds. This is big enough to support her, she's actually almost locked in behind me, she's actually fallen asleep on long rides because she feels so secure. It's tough as nails, holds EVERYTHING you could need, and keeps it all dry too!
I'll buy more of their products no question about it!

Really impressive performance. I just used it for a 3,000 mile trip across the U.S. in all sorts of weather during which It held up perfectly. I had been looking at panniers but I like to travel light and finally settled on this instead and used it for all my camping gear and tools with an additional waterproof bag for my clothes. It's very well thought out and sits behind you solid as a rock with plenty of points to which you can attach your other bags. An excellent product and made in the U.S. too. I wholeheartedly recommend this and, as ever, it all comes with revzilla's fantastic customer service.

A Great Alternative to Hard Cases
This saddle bag does an excellent job of distributing the weight of the contents. If you load heavier items in the "legs" of the bag, it really keeps the center of gravity low. Very easy to attach, and is rock solid once it is cinched down. I like that it is available in white - it looks great on my white Triumph Tiger XCx.
The only downside is that it is not the easiest bag to get things out of. However, overall it is an outstanding saddlebag. I'm looking forward to touring and camping with it.

Perfect budget solution for long trips.
I wanted to take longer trips on my KLR but I didn't want big clunky panniers because of their cost and how much width they add to the bike. The Great Basin carries all I need and doesn't get in the way or break my budget. Plus, when I get to a destination I can remove the unit in seconds and carry it to where I set up my tent. I saved probably more than a thousand bucks over panniers with the Great Basin and my bike is still narrow enough for tight trails. I love it!

Fit my needs
Good product. I needed a big bag that could be moved from my F800GS to my KLX250S...and this fit the bill perfect. takes a little bit of playing with to get it to fit the way I wanted. (so it did not cover the fuel cap) but once positioned it did the job very well. The strapping system is very nice and allows you to add other dry bags if needed. I took it on a 1,400 mile trip trough TN, NC, VA, and it held up well, kept my stuff dry. We shall see how it wears over time and adventure.

Great design and bomber construction
Did my first DS camping trip with the Great Basin bag. Packed it full and hardly knew it was there. Great design/features and bomber construction. Chose this over the coyote. Has the compression straps to make it smaller for short hops or load it up on those extended trips.
