Wolfman Expedition Dry Saddle Bags

Wolfman went all out to create the Expedition Dry Saddlebags. They designed these bags to be durable and 100% waterproof for the most adventurous and aggressive riders around. Wolfman started with burly 22 ounce and 34 ounce vinyl, and used cutting-edge Radio Frequency technology for completely sealed seams.

These 100% waterproof bags seal out dust, mud and odors. Ideal in any climate, from the Wet Pacific Northwest, Rainy Emerald Isle, to dry dusty climates, and all weather in between. Roll-top closures seal the bags and make it easy to adjust capacity to suit your gear. The bags have two straps over the seat and each bag attaches to any tubular side racks at 4 points for maximum hold. The mounting straps double as compression straps to keep the load attached and tight. Wolfman also uses an internal Butterfly stiffener, stiff back, bottom and front, which helps the bag retain shape and allows the load to be compressed tightly.

Features:

  • 100% Waterproof fabric - 22oz body and 34oz bottom
  • Waterproof roll-top with no-wick webbing
  • Multi Compression straps to cinch the load tight
  • Includes universal mounting straps
  • Recycled tire-rubber backing pad
  • Extra tall opening for size adjustability
  • Tough, functional luggage protects your gear
  • Radio Frequency welded no-leak seams
  • Roll-top closures seal out the elements
  • Waterproof top webbing won't wick in water
  • Sold as a pair
  • Made in the USA

Dimensions:

  • Length: 13”
  • Width: 7”
  • Height: 13” adjustable about 3” more

Capacity:

  • 38 liters per pair - 19 liters each
  • The extra tall opening can adjust to add 2 or more liters per bag

Wolfman, aren't those the same bags I can get on amazon for a few bucks?
Wolfman, aren't those the same bags I can get on amazon for a few bucks?

Absofreakinglutely, NOT.

I'll admit, I didn't do a ton of reading on wolfman products. I know their tank bags, I've always liked them. . but their saddle bags were an unknown to me, which I always thought was a bit rich for my taste.

As usual, I spent time drinking instead of preparing for my trip that I was taking to Ouray. So at the last minute I decided I was going to replace my crapheap saddlebags that were droopier than <insert your own offensive statement here> and with that I decided at the last minute to get wolfman bags.

The bags were simple enough, although at first I wasn't able to figure out how to mount them. It's amazing what 30 seconds of reading can do. After that I had them fixed to the bike and mounted securely. The construction is nice, although it seems like you have too many straps, those straps definitely help you out in condensing the bags down as much as possible.

I was hesitant to go with panniers, as I didn't want to break an ankle, but I wanted to go with panniers because I figured they'd hold up better and secure better than these bags.

Well, these bags can take an absolute beating. Riding my pig of a dr650 around ouray for a week with the bags attached I took a few spills at low speed and the bags didn't even scratch. Finally I scratched one of the bags with a 20mph get-off that ended my ride as well. What happened to the bags with that? A single scuff. I'm amazed at how durable these are and I question if these bags aren't made with the DNA of Chuck Norris himself, because nothing hurts them.

I wasn't too sure when I bought if I would like them. Now I love them.

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.

goodbye hard cases
I'm glad I finally made the switch from hard panniers to soft. I have a duffel from Wolfman so I stayed with them and got these bags. They're lighter, lower profile, and I think they look better than hard boxes. The quality is great. Totally waterproof. I've read other reviews complaining about the cost and the fit. The cost is hundreds less than hard boxes and the fit can be fully adjusted. I have them mounted to a Hepco Becker rack and the fit is fine. There are plenty of similar products to this one but I recommend Wolfman because their quality has been solid in my experience and the webbing design is effective and simple - after getting used to it - and they just plain work. I should say the mounting straps are included with the saddle bags.

The best soft panniers system.........period.
After several trips using the Dry Expedition Panniers I can honestly say that they are the best soft panniers I have ever used. The racks are really well made and hug the bike tight making for a narrow rear end compared to others. I have ridden through down pours with zero moisture inside of the bags. These bags are so good you can empty them out at the camp site and tote water in them back to the camp base. You can also use them as a wash tub. The mounting system is secure yet easy to get on and off. If your looking to save weight or want a top quality soft pannier system then you can't go wrong with Wolfman Expedition Dry Panniers.

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.

Best Bags Ever
I have been using these bags for nearly 3 months for Adventure riding which includes primitive camping and off roading. They are AMAZING! They have held up to multiple downpours and held everything from food and camp gear to clothes and firewood. It has kept everything bone dry. Absolutely LOVE these bags!

Soft Bags for my GSA
This is an awesome product, I chose these for my 2015 R1200GS Adventure and used them on the stock racks. They are an excellent option instead of the very expensive hard luggage.

Looking forward to years of service.

Great bags, unlike any others on the market
I looked for saddlebags and panniers for a long long time until I found the Wolfman line. I think these are easily some of the best quality bags on the market. They are very reasonably priced with similar options cost a great deal more. I gave them 4/5 on bang for buck simply because you have to get a mounting system some how, and I think the Wolfman mounts are a little high in price. That being said, if you pair this with the Wolfman "other" rack mount straps you can use pretty much any system.

So far these bags have been very durable and waterproof. They come on and off with ease after some practice. I would highly recommend these to anyone interested in touring with ample space and peace of mind.

Excellent soft bags
I've been riding these soft bags for months and really like them.
Easy on and off, easy to load, weather proof with the inner dry bags (which includes dust, rain etc), and quite good looking as well. In non rainy conditions the bags work great without using the inner dry bag. I ride hard aluminum Globescout bags for everything on road now and these for off road but had been using these for everyday use and they did everything I asked of them. Great bags!

I have these same bags and use them on my Husqvarna TR650. This set of bags will be for my husband and his KTM 950 ADV. He has hard Hepco-Becker Gobi bags but he doesn't like to use them when we're off-road. He has used mine before and he loved them. They will be put to good use!

As a lighter option to install in place of the Zega panniers for off road rides. I prefer this instead of a top case because it may offer some protection in case of falls.

I decided I didn't want hard cases... I tried these (yellow) and now I very glad I did... They work great and hold a lot... I like the yellow,, it helps vehicles from behind and come from the side of you realize you are there... Bright colors stand out,, grays and black blend into the pavement... Red F800 GSA.......

Lite weight and hopefully my essentials will fit, thus eliminating 24 lbs of hard bags. These bags will reduce the amount of capacity I currently have with the hard panniers currently installed on bike. Presently own wolfman products and am very impressed with quality in every arena.

I'm thinking to add the Expedition side bags to the top of my Jesse Bags (metal). From the top of the Jessee Bags to my wife's arms it is 13". These would seem to be perfect as arm rests for her since these are 13" wide when on their side. .Any thoughts on this application? Thanks ; )
A shopper on Aug 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I love my Expedition bags, very well made. Took a serious spill that left me with 3 broken ribs and about $1500 of damage (plastics) to my KLR. As for the bags, not even a scuff.

As for your question, it sounds like a good idea. The compression straps would help contain the proper size so it does not become to bulky. Try it, Revzilla has a great return policy.
Wolfman Medium Duffle and Saddle Bags: I know there is a specific side rack system for my bike ('12 DR650SE), but is a rear rack required or recommended to carry the duffle? If so, what brand? TIA John
John H on Aug 10, 2013
BEST ANSWER: You could carry a duffel without a rear rack but it would probably cover your brake light and be hard on the rear fender due to lack of support. I would recommend a rear rack. A good combo I've found is the wolfman side racks and the pro moto billet rear rack. (I found out the hard way a man rack rear and wolfman side are NOT compatible, fyi.)

I would recommend a small wolfman duffel paired with the side expedition bags. Any larger than the small duffel and you will have a hard time getting into your side bags without moving/removing the duffel. The small duffel is actually quite large.

My bike is a 2005 DR 650. Hope that helps.
Anyone know if this bag would fit a textile motorcycle jacket (with armor)? It seems not, right?
Faysal on Apr 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm able to fit the Joe Rocket Phoenix jacket (which has a soft spine pad) into this saddle bag just barely; it's a tight fit.

Do the bags include universal saddlebag straps?
A shopper on Jan 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I don't believe the Expedition saddlebags include Wolfman's recently released "Universal Saddlebag Straps" to secure them to your side rack. I purchased my bags in mid-2013 (before the "Universal Saddlebag Straps" were available) and bought the "Other Rack Mount Straps" to mate with my Happy Trails SU side racks. The system is pretty straightforward and includes straps that go over, or under, a bike's seat depending on the bike's design, other accessories that may already be installed, and the owner's intent. These bags easily go on my WR250R with a Sargant seat, Happy Trails SU racks, and Happy Trails rear rack.
This question has been asked before. Are the universal Wolfman straps included? Wolfman's site says they are.
Shawn on Dec 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I mounted the Wolfman saddlebags to my Touratech frame via the Velcro D-rings. I believe the universal straps referred to were not available when I bought mine a year or two ago. I think your bike specific straps are included from Wolfman but not positive.

That being said, the D-rings work great and the bags held in place very well even when I forgot to connect one of the D-rings. The only problem is that the straps can be a bit of a chore to tighten/loosen after they are covered in grime or when your hands are semi-frozen. Hard cases would be easier to open and close but these soft bags are a worthwhile inexpensive alternative for shorter trips of a week or two or less. Any longer and I would get tired of dealing with the straps and packing and unpacking the soft bags.
Will the expedition saddle bags fit on the Hepco Becker c-bow system?
A shopper on Jul 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Bud really I don't know if the Expedition Saddle Bags fit on Hepco Becker, I'm sorry, but there are a really nice and helpfull bags
Hello guys!

Just a quick question, do the F800GS 2014 need a racking system for the Wolfman Expedition Dry Saddle Bags? I try to do a sort with my bike selected but only the heat cove came on?

Cheers
Gustavo Ernesto D on Nov 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You won't have any trouble finding racks for your bike. As far as the Wolfman bags go, I've punished mine for two "seasons" so far, and haven't had any issues whatsoever. If you can't spring for some aluminum panniers, these are the next best bet. Happy riding!
Looking to use these for an FZ07. I can't tell from the picture or description if I'll need to buy a luggage rack for the bike in order to use these. Ideally, I could get medium size dry bags that are easy to get on and off without having to buy a rack that will make me cut holes or drill through any part of my bike. Are these what I'm looking for?
Drew C on Oct 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You need luggage racks for these to work. A variety of racks work with these, since the attachments are adjustable, the Wolfman website explains attachment and size of racks required in detail.
I am interested in this product but now that Wolfman no longer makes side racks which side racks do they fit best on?
John C on Feb 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi John. I've had a pair of these soft pannier bags for 18 months. They are totally waterproof and easy to use. (I got rid of all the fiddly straps and use a rubber occy strap on each side - much easier.) I can thoroughly recommend the side racks (and tail racks and engine protection bars) made by Fred at Dirt Racks. I researched a number of brands and these are excellent value and very tough - and they fitted really well first time. Plus, they are designed to fit hard and soft luggage so if you ever want to change to hard boxes it's easy. These bags are a bit smaller than some others on the market. There's not much in it but a few times I've wished I had the extra space of a pair of Andy Strapz. Happy travels!
What side rack is available to fit the Wolfman Expedition dry bags on a 2006 Suzuki DR-Z400S?
A shopper on Feb 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Don't know but the bags fit my Bmw1200GSA stock side mounts almost perfectly. You're going to need a pretty big side rail system for a DRZ400. Moto-racks might work. SW Motech makes good stuff and appears to be bigger than moto-racks and would probably work. You need about 14-16" long and about 8-10" high rails. The Moto-rack has cool loops built in that will work well with the Wolfman attachment system if the rack is big enough.
