Wolfman Expedition Dry Saddle Bags
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!

Keeps your stuff dry
A nice, lightweight dry pannier. There are several straps to contend with upon entry and exit - but that is the way it is with soft luggage

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!

Well made bag with more room then they look
Great bag. Well made. Look small but when you use them they are like the clown car at the circus. How did I ever get so much stuff in the bags? One note, if you are using the bags on other then Wolfman racks You will probably have to order the "other bike straps" to take advantage of the quick release feature. As always quick delivery and outstanding customer service..

When Hard Panniers are not in the Budget!
These bags have been working great! Lots of storage, easy to operate, easy to install. Plus they just look good! When you can't spare the 1100 dollars for a nice set of panniers, these bags Deliver!

A good set of bags at a good price.
Im using these bags right now on a month long trip and they seem to really be holding up well, if you're using these and a deccent size top bag and still dont have enough room for all your stuff then your taking to much! and the wolfman racks are great too!

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.
