Wolfman Expedition Dry Saddle Bags
Quality ADV saddlebags
I wanted a waterproof / durable saddlebag to mount to my KTM 690R. Wolfman bags hit a home run! Easy to install (lucky to have the Wolfman luggage side racks before they quit making them) They will mount to any racks due to a very easy strap mount system. I took them out during 4th of July holiday in the Mountain area of Brushy MTN. TN. I liked the ease to open and close the bags and I endured a downpour on 2 occasions, with absolutely NO leakage! I purchased the medium duffle bag to go along with the bags. I highly recommend this bags. Wolfman produces very high end gear for ADV applications.

Double tough and well thought out
I've used these for hundreds of days of adventuring from Labrador to Tierra del Fuego. I have never needed to do any repairs except to straps which I absently melted. They are small, which is a good thing. I ride a 650 thumper and I like to ride a bit sporty. With these panniers you won't be converting your bike into a big heavy pig. They never leak and I have crossed several rivers over the top of the roll. My first pair has outlasted 3 bikes and shows no signs of deterioration. If I had one quibble it would be about the plastic stiffeners. They will bend and stay bent,which makes loading and unloading a lot tougher. Maybe they can find a plastic with no memory or some such. Great job Wolfman.

Does a great job!
Have had them on my GS now for a month and they look and work very well. Wish they were slightly larger.

Good bang for your buc
After opening the package and reviewing the instructions I was confused, but after messing with it for a couple minutes it was quite easy to install and had now problem installing them on my BMW 800 ADV. A very well made product that is very durable. A good alternative to the expensive panniers.

Wolfman Expedition Dry Saddle Bags
These Saddle Bags are great... For Adventure riding these are the best... Don't have to worry about damage like hard bags,, these are lighter and very waterproof... Choice of two colors,, mine are the yellow ones,, bright and easier to see for those car driver that don't want to see motorcycle rides,, if you know what I mean... Wolfman Products are very good and sold by a good supplier,, REVZILLA....

Great design and well made
I bought these bags to substitute for my very expensive BMW aluminum panniers when riding offroad. Installation was a breeze. I mounted them right to the stock BMW pannier bag mounts.
I simply zip-tied an formed alum plate to protect from the exhaust side and a flat aluminum plate to the other side to give a flat surface to rest on. Once I became familiar with how the straps worked I was very impressed. They look very cool too.
They are a little bit of work to get into but it's worth it when you get to your destination and you have dry and dust free clothes.
Wolfman did a great job designing and fabricating these bags. I highly recommend this product.

I'm committed to Wolfy
I've just purchased these waterproof saddle bags from wolfman and they are now my third product from these guys....and each product that I have bought has been perfect for my applications.
With my KTM690e, I simply built a couple of aluminum struts that attach from the grab bars to the rear foot pegs so that any saddle bag could rest against it without getting caught in the wheel or burning on the exhaust.
The saddle bags attach brilliantly to my home made setup. All the weight is through the wide straps that go over the seat. The small frame attachment straps connect to the rear pegs as well as around the alu struts. The number of straps means that I can lock it down securly...awesome.
I've got a 3000k ride to do in a few weeks and I know that these bags will take the pounding.
Also...revzilla ship amazely quick. I think I decided to get the bags and order them on Friday and they arrived in NZ, on the Tuesday...I was hoping to have them in a couple of weeks let alone a few days!
