Wolfman Expedition Dry Duffel Bag
Nice bag for extended trip or bad weather.
I use this bag in lieu of a top case on my '14 R12GSA. The straps included with the bag work well with my standard GSA side cases, attaching to the tie-down points on the lids. If you make sure that the side case lids hinge the same direction, you have access to the contents of the side cases, without removing the bag. My only regret is that I didn't purchase the large bag, instead of the medium.

A good tough soft bag for where hard bags will not do
Got this in a rush for a first ever trip to CO Rockies to hit the passes and on to Moab. Not cheap but a good tough bag with plenty of attachment points. Suggest you don't do what I did and get up against the clock. Take your time and figure out the best procedure to attach and remove as you may not want to leave it on the bike at a questionable motel. The expedition bags are 3X on this. All in all, a tough set of soft bags that I expect to get years of good service.

A quality high end bag
I added this bag to the expedition saddle bags and bottle holders. This bag will hold my tent, stove and other gear with ease. I purchased the medium ( think ahead to the measurements of possible gear you'll be packing). I really like the waterproof construction and the closure system (NO zippers to rip, rust, or stick!) Wolfman develops their products with great thought into real world ADV applications. I highly recommend this series of bags.

Wolfman is top of the line gear
this medium dry bag is excellent when packing a tent, chair,sleeping bag, stove, and clothes for a back country motorcycle trip. it kept everything dry and neat during some pretty heavy downpours in Utah. Highly recommended

Good capacity and features
I was trying to decide about luggage set up in a past trip. Finally I decide to buy aluminium panniers and I struggle in every single hotel I stop to attach, remove or look for needed items. I give a try to the Wolfman Expedition Dry Duffel Bag to carry all items that need quick access. The bag is just incredible, good capacity, solid construction and easy attachment. I have the plus of a good support for my back and since I got the yellow one, increases visibility of the motorbike as well.

One of the best dry bag options
Frankly all dry bags are unbelievably durable. After that it comes which form factor you need or prefer. This design offer considerable convenience since it has wide gate mouth. It is well suited to storing large items such as tents,sleeping bags and pads. It is made of material so heavy that it is a bit of a pain to burp and roll. It also doesn't achieve much compression. I have used it with the contents organized in their own compression stuff sacks with more success. It has a zillion straps and rings for tying it down. As seen from the end it is a tear drop shape. I'd prefer a bag that was flat oval so that the bag would have a lower aspect and CG. All in all, the bag is overbuilt and heavier than necessary. It would be great with fabric about 1/2 that weight, especially the roll up parts. Nice one Wolfman.

This bag has a good strapping system, but it could be better.
The bag has a great strapping system, but Wolfman put cheap plastic D-rings on it. It seems if your going to pay a premium price it should have metal D-rings. Somehow I poked a hole in the bag the fist time out. This may have been my fault but it seemed to easy to do. I will patch it with a bicycle patch. Overall I am satisfied with the bag.

Three Years Later
Purchased both the 22" and 24" versions for long term touring. Turns out, I only needed the 24". Holds all my camping equipment: Tent, sleeping bag, kermit chair, air pad, jetboil, blanket, towel, hatchet, LuxuryLite cot, and all the other little stuff you need for camp.
I know that when I do end up at at hotel after 3-4 days of riding, I can just unstrap it and drop it on the floor in the hotel room - I won't need anything in it.
I've used it on many rides, some over three weeks. Never leaked. Still not showing any wear. Gave the 22" to a friend. He loves it too.
I do note however that they no longer include the second set of bottom d-rings. If anyone at wolfman is reading this - It is a feature I use every time to make ensure that my pack straps are not flapping in the wind. HIGHLY recommend that you add them back to the product. No one cares if it cost an extra dollar.
