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.


  • 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


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


  • 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.

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.

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.

Bomb proof
I bought a set of wolfman dry expedition saddle bags about a year ago and since then I have beat on them very heavily on my klr650. A bit under a year ago I rode through a huge dust storm in arizona, into a monsoon, and then on for another 2 hours. When I reached my destination I was worried about my clothes and items in the bags... but when I opened them?

Perfect. No water. No dust. No damage.

Not only this but Wolfman himself is a FANTASTIC guy. Very friendly, quick on emails, and just google him and check out the advrider comments about him. His products are top notch. A quick side note about these: When they're off the bike you can make a very simple make-shift backpack/frontpack with them that is perfect for hauling items on foot for some distances.

Waterproof, bomb proof, awesomeness
- These fit perfectly on my BMW 1200GS Adventure OEM pannier racks. The strap system allows for several different options for mounting these. I could see these being a great option if you have more than one bike as these swap and configure fairly easily.

- They are made of a very rugged, waterproof material and the quality "feel" to them is remarkable.

- They are obviously MUCH lighter than metal side cans.

- As they are "stuffable" and not rigid they are much more symmetric from an aesthetic rear view and don't suffer from the lost space due to the muffler on most adventure bikes. They also stuff vertically as opposed to horizontally, which makes splitting lanes much easier than with traditional wide hard cases.

- They are totally waterproof/water tight and make a great cooler for beverages--just add ice!

- The more you use them and the dirtier they get, the better they look! They look downright badass once they are broken in with some proper mud caked on them! They just beg to be dropped in the mud, river, sand, etc...

- These aren't designed to be beautiful, street glossy, urban commando panniers. As I mentioned above they are at their most beautiful when they are filthy and banged up with "adventure wrinkles!"

- There is a learning curve to getting these mounted to your satisfaction. I spent several hours over a long cross country trip playing around with the different configurations until I finally found the perfect solution for me and my bike.

- Once mounted you will not want to take them off as it can be a bit of a pain / time consuming, particularly in bad weather.

- They are not lockable and anyone with a knife can cut right into them. If security is a big concern of yours these are zero secure. So if someone wants to steal your week-old laundry, they're going to get it.

- They are "squishy" which is excellent if you drop your bike--not so much if you had a laptop, iPad, camera gear or other breakable items in there. Packing with common sense applies here.

- They can melt if you don't pay close attention to how you mount them. They do have a protective wear shield, but a hot muffler could burn right through it--so don't do that.

- If left empty and mounted they can flap around a bit which can be annoying. However if you trap some air in them and roll them tight they will remain "full" of trapped air for weeks at a time, they really are that water tight / air tight.

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.

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!

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 been using Wolfman luggage on my DRZ400S for about 3 years now and they have been perfect. I ride almost every day and there is no fading or even a stitch out of place, so even though they are expensive I know I will get my moneys worth out of them. I chose these particular bags due to that I needed more space for an upcoming dualsport trip and having them be waterproof gives me the extra protection from the elements that I know I'm going to need.

Anyone know if this bag would fit a textile motorcycle jacket (with armor)? It seems not, right?

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?

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!
is this the price of ~$234 for a pair, i.e. 2 bags, left and right bags?
A shopper on Jan 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, that's per pair. Great bags, have held up very well. Pretty fast on/off of the Wolfman racks too, with their little quick release attachment. No heat issue next to the factory DR650 exhaust for me, either. All in all, very happy with these.
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.
Can you add Wolfman bottle holsters to these bags?
Frances F on Feb 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can, I have one on each of my bags.
Between this or Large Rollie bags, which is better with a Happ Trails rack?
Luis V on Jun 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I bought them for my Moto Guzzi V7 road bike. The bags work for me and keeps my gear dry but I don't think I am really answering your question.
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.
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 P 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
