Good piece of luggage right here. Needed something big enough to keep my extra large sleeping bag dry. The bag had enough room left over to throw in the tent, inflatable pillow, Kermit Chair and bathroom bag. Like how it rolls up and no slack in the bag, nice tight package to strap down. Kept everything dry for 11 day trip around Lake Michigan. port to port from Virginia. Other reviews mentioned the tie down points had broken, so i was careful to only put enough pressure on the tie downs to hold the bag on the bike. No problems. Should get many more trips from this luggage. very happy. September 29, 2015
Waterproof! and easy as can be to use. I purchased this bag after going on a trip with a buddy who had two of them as his primary mode of transporting his stuff on his Big Strom. I bought a size large in the high viz yellow and you can fit at least two toddlers in this thing!! Ok I keed.... I didn't put toddlers into an airtight bag, but I am able to fit basically my entire campsite into it! 2 person tent, self inflating bed roll, pillow, small folding chair, camp stove/cook pot/fuel can, sleeping bag and even a full air mattress if I really wanted to! I'll be using it to store my food in when at campsites since it is air tight and the bears won't smell all my beans and rice packets. The strap system is as simple and effective as can be. The bag does not move after I cinch it down tight across my pillion seat. The stiffening support in the bottom of the bag helps it keep its shape and make it easy to get loaded up. Only issue that I've had is that the high viz yellow faded a bit with a few days out in the Florida sun. September 6, 2015
Great dry bag for road riding. Not sturdy enough off road. I purchased the large bag to use with my F800GS adventure bike. My first trip using the bag was a 3 day weekend ride mostly off road. Despite cinching the bag as tight as I could, it still moved a bit. The bottom of the bag wore two holes fromt the tail rack. The bag was still water tight as there was a second layer of material. I patched the two holes with pieces of rubber gasket material. I used the bag again on an 8 day trip that was mostly road riding. The back worked great. Nelson Rigg could improve this bag with a sturdier, thicker, rubberized bottom. That would also likely increase the price of the bag which is why I chose this bag over more expensive Wolfman gear to begin with. September 1, 2015
Well designed, well made Have traveled several thousand miles with my Nelson-Rigg Dry Bags now (I bought 2), and found them very practical, well designed, and durable. Would recommend to other riders without hesitation. August 31, 2015
Ok for the $$? but not durable. Better off buying a more rugged and durable product from the onset Purchased this bag 1/14 .It was, in all fairness used throughout the winter and most of the year on a daily basis, but problems developed from the onset. While the bag did it's job of keeping the contents dry, the plastic fastening system failed, I got free replacement clips from the manufacturer, but only one worked, the other attached to the bag would require that the bag be replaced. Then recently the rivets popped loose, rendering the bag useless.Nelson Rigg offers a lifetime warranty on the bag, but the cost of shipping back and forth coupled with the possibility that they may determine that it's not a manufacturer's defect really means that a new bag is in order.

Great bag for long, wet trips. 4.5 Stars. I bought the large version of this bag before a 7-day, 2,000 mile trip last year. During the 2nd & 3rd day, rain fell continuously. Sometimes so hard visibility was almost zero. Not one of the items in this bag got wet during that time, while my other saddle bags, tail bag and tank bag were wet through the rain covers. The straps provide good mounting options. I chose to mount mine lengthwise instead of across the bike (Tiger 800) because this allowed best configuration of the other bags. The additional loops provided on this bag are attaching for other bags, tent poles, etc. My only complaint is that the bag isn't really tall enough. 2-3 more inches of height would allow you to more easily roll up the top for closure. It gets 4.5 stars due to this. Even with this limitation, I was able to fit a tent, 2-sleeping bags, camp pillows, some small electronics and several day's clothing. I would definitely recommend this bag to anyone looking to take long trips. September 12, 2014
23-days of hard riding did this bag in. I took this bag on a cross-country trip starting in Brooklyn New York, all the way to the arctic circle in Canada’s Yukon territory. The bag was subjected to daily riding for over 20 days, including all types of weather: hot and sunny, rainy and cold, dry and dusty, even a short hail storm. We camped at night, and the bag was being packed/un-packed on a daily basis. The bag functioned well, and kept everything dry throughout that 23-day trip. However, on the last day of riding, near Whitehorse, one of the rivets came out. This meant that the bag could only be secured with 3 of the 4 straps. The remaining 3 straps do the job, but I feel that the bag is reaching the end of its life span, and I wouldn’t trust it on another long trip. The old adage of “you get what you pay for” is true with this product. It functions well (perhaps even above expectations, during normal conditions and light use). However, if you are planning a serious trip, or you ride every day, consider buying a more rugged product. Photos and video attached. August 21, 2014

A shopper asked: Is there anyway to lock the bag? Maybe a luggage lock on zippers? Oct 27, 2013

William F: The Nelson Rigg Adventure Dry Bag folds over and attaches with buckles, so there is no zipper to lock. Dry bags, once secure, are hard to get into, but I don't know of a way to lock them other than a cable around the bag, which would keep anyone from unfolding it and getting in. I think the bigger risk would be someone removing the whole bag from the bike, so a cable lock is definitely a good idea. Oct 28, 2013
Reply to William Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Roger E: There is not a way to lock this bag. There are no zippers or metal parts on the bag on which to fasten a lock, nor can you lock the bag to your bike. The only way I can think of securing it would be to own a locking cover for the entire bike.
Even if you could lock it, any thief could slice open the bag with any blade.

Charles N: There is no way to lock it securely. The bag has no zippers and locking the buckles to each other reduces the capacity to useless. You roll the bag closed and that closure is about 20" and very flexible. Oct 28, 2013

John C: I really don't think there's a way to lock it. But remember , just a couple of snaps and you can take it with you. If you roll it right a covered lock cable and lock should attach it to the bike quite well. Oct 28, 2013

Richard S: There is not a way to lock the bag. No zippers are present. If someone wanted in the bag anyway, they could cut through the material. Bag works great to defeat weather, but not thieves, unfortunately. Nov 1, 2013

jordan d: No, I wondered about that too, several hundred dollars of camping gear tied to the bike with bungee cords, you could look at buying a locking cable, like a bike lock, and place it over the bag Oct 28, 2013

A shopper asked: I have a 2010 Z1000 with a fender eliminator kit, so the rear is completely open. I could attach the bag to the frame on the front, but do you know how I could attach the bag in the rear?

Is this compatible with my bike?

timothy a: Likely not, it needs 4 attachment points to be stable, and its long enough that you would have to mount it too far forward to get the front and rear straps hooked within the length of the rear seat. The internal reinforcement is really just a thin piece of plastic or stiff cardboard in the base of the bag that stiffens it up a bit. Also, even with the rear fender still on the bike, I'd question whether that all-plastic extension is stiff enough to serve as safe rear attachment points for the bag. Think you'd be better off with something more square-shaped. Sep 16, 2013

Robert C: Hi, I have not used the bag yet, but I did mount it on my bike. I have it on the pillon seat, straddling the Jessie pannier, so that works fine. The bag comes with a fairly firm bottom and 4 fixed strap receptors/claps, one at each corner at the bottom. You have some freedom as to where or how you route the straps and than attached them to the fixed clasps. I cannot envision you bike setup, but if the bag sits on a firm substructure, the straps could all come from your rear frame into the claps, I presume. I hope this helps. Sep 18, 2013

Roger E: The straps for this bag have looped ends that can be attached to any bar or anything that it can go around given enough length. The straps could possibly go around the entire rear end each, they are rather long, but another way would be to loop the end of the straps together under the seat or under the whole seat/fender assembly. However, the latter method would not keep the bag from sliding forward without tightening all the straps very tightly. It's a great bag, it holds a boatload of stuff. I hope this helps. Roger Sep 16, 2013

Charles N: The bag attaches with nylon straps that are looped at one end. You need something that they can loop around. They are really long so you could possible put them around the license plate bracket or even around the entire tail section, but that might scuff up the finish. The bag works really well, with the give to accommodate odd sizes, but mine never looks as tidy as Rigg has it pictured. Sep 16, 2013

jordan d: I am not familiar with your bike, the bag comes with four straps to tie into your frame, it has a rigid bottom, and is @ 26 inches long. You could buy additional straps to tie it on if you have something to tie them to, I am on a 1200 GSA Sao I have no issues with tie downs , perhaps you could tie it on with bag across the seat instead of lengthwise on the bike , good luck Sep 16, 2013

Gregory H asked: Does this bag have any carry handles or a shoulder strap? Jun 16, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Facundo G: No handles and the shoulder strap is not really usefull. I think it is not meant to be used for carrying this bag around, i think it is a great waterproof product for long distance ridding, the straps to hold this to the bike are well done and hold it perfect when ridding. Test the bag travelling in south america. Good luck. From Buenos Aires, Argentina. Jun 16, 2014
Reply to Facundo Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
James F: No carry handles but it does have a shoulder strap. I will say while this is an excellent bag (I have used it in downpours w/o any issue), the shoulder strap is quite narrow and tends to cut into your shoulder if there's lots of weight in the bag. But this is a great bag and I highly recommend it! Jun 16, 2014
Reply to James Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Barry P: Yes. It comes with a shoulder strap.
Just used this bag in a trip to a VStrom rally in N.C. and back. Poured the entire way back (3 hours). Not a drop of moisture inside. Holds LOTS and love the way it both secures, and ties down. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.
