I fabricated the bags myself because I couldn't find anything good for the XR.
I carried the sleeping bag on the left, the mattress on the right and the tent on top. They are made out of waterproof heavy material. I can install them in about 15 seconds with bungee cords.
I don't feel the bags at all wile riding. They don't move. They are rock steady. All the rest I carried on the back pack. It's a very nice setup.
I almost forgot to mention the bags makes the seat wider which is great for long rides.
Here is one more pic

Those bags look perfect! Care to share a view of the top of the seat with them installed?

I hope these photos help. Those bags are not round, they are more like a tear drop shape. They have a heavy duty straps all around with loops for the bungee cords. The sheep skin is a nice added feature for very long rides, it's confortable and "incognito" (I don't like a big sheep skin hanging all over)
I used a regular sewing machine to make them but that material was a little to much for the poor sewing machine. If you are going to build one, I recomend to borrow a heavy duty one if you can.
Cheers

Great work! Genius design. I'd buy those any day before a Giant Loop.
