Backpack/dry bag for motorcycle and car camping

Reviewed by Rex from Northern California on Thursday, June 19, 2014
I used this on an extended adventure motorcycle trip from California through the Pacific Northwest, Canada, Yukon and Alaska. It was utterly simple, rugged, kept my gear dry (vital to avoid hypothermia on a cold and rainy motorcycle trip) and allowed me to get off the bike and go hiking in Denali and elsewhere. The simplicity of the roll top was worth the tradeoff in slightly reduced convenience--stuffing my arm down into the bag was better than a zipper leaking. I stuffed hard, sharp objects into it, dropped it, dragged it, strapped it down against a vibrating luggage rack for 10,000 miles, used it as a laundry bucket, and just generally abused the thing. It did eventually wear through, long after the Alaska trip, on another extended campout in Utah when I used it again to do laundry--the material developed some small rubs and cracks from abuse and UV exposure.
Still, a tremendous value for what you get, compared to dedicated motorcycle luggage. I'm getting another.
