Ignore first two posts as couldn't get it to display full message for some reason. This is directly from full throttle.

Put some paper towels in the bag and stuck it in the shower


Papers towels came out dry

I am not saying they re as good a a $100 bag, but for 20 bucks I think they will do for me.

Well maybe they'll end up being fine. Your shower test seems promising. The reason I asked is, it seemed to me if it held air from escaping, then water should not ingress.

Keep testing them in bad weather back n forth from work or something so you'll know for sure before a trip when it really matters.

I have a lot of different bags for different uses, but the heavier duty ones I've strapped to the bike are submersible 3 roll float bags like EnduroDan posted. But for motorcycle use the purge valve would be a nice addition.

If I was starting from scratch and buying one for the bike, I'd try one that rolls from both ends like this......

here is what werk for me



http://www.cabelas.com/product/Boati...3Bcat104682780

they used to stock them in Hamburg,PA location, but now I think you have to order them if They are still available. The new ones I saw in stock have a hard bottom with wheels (more like a suite case)



They have four sizes

Regular 24"X12"X12"
Large 30"X14"X14" (I have this one and it is huge, I fit all my camp crap in it)
X-large 36"X16"X16"
Magnum 42"x17"X17"

The blue one shown in the pics looks like the regular one, If you wanna get an Idea of size
