Pacsafe Stuffsafe 80

Guys,

I'm looking for something like Pacsafe Stuffsafe 80 to store my riding gears while doing a short hike but it seem like this Pacsafe Stuffsafe 80 is discontinued. Anyone know where I can find it? Anyone wants to sell or rent (1 month) me yours?

Thanks very much!

Pacsafe makes a lockable safety net that I have been using for a few years. It may be an option for you, they call it a "Pacsafe Anti-Theft Backpack/Bag Protector". They come in various sizes.

Backcountry.com has the nets on sale for 30% off.

Thanks very much for the pointer. I ordered an 85 net and will get a dry bag to go with it. This way I can stuff my riding jacket/pants/boots/helmet inside the bag and lock it down while taking a few hours hike.

During my US x-cross country trip, someone opened my tank bag while I came inside a convenience store for a restroom break but fortunately I left all the valuable inside the locked panniers.

Any recommendation for dry bag that fits inside this 85L net?

Had mine for 10 years now... used for my bike, Zodiac and kayak.
Fits perfect on both bikes and ideal size for the pacsafe 80 with even abit of extra room for a jacket or whatever. The mesh on the pacsafe is abit abrasive but it hasnt harmed the drybag yet.

another good theft deterrent is the pac safe cable lock, cheaper on other sites

My top choices are Wolfman and Ortlieb. Sign up for BestRest.com's email. David runs sales on his Ortlieb bags often. He has an 85 liter model but be warned, it is HUGE.

I have the same Pacsafe net. I can fit all my riding gear, boots, pants, jacket, helmet inside it and leave that gear secured to the bike. I find it very handy when I'm going to places where I want to walk away from the bike to take photos particularly in summer when I don't want to be walking in riding gear.

Because we don't want to spam the forum, we don't generally post sales announcements for Ortlieb and other products. But if you sign up for the CyclePump Press newsletter and/or you follow us on Facebook you'll see announcements on these sales. Sales are spur-of-the-moment decisions and only last a short time, generally 3-4 days.

Often you have to use a special coupon code because the price is below Ortlieb's Minimum Advertised Price (MAP). You can get that code in the newsletter and on the Facebook page.

On another topic, here's a link to our YouTube channel where we post videos showing various items and how-to videos on how to repair and change tires.

Thanks very much for the info guys. I used to do long distance bicycle touring and Ortlieb bags was one of the best.

I've unexpectedly spent to much prepping this AK trip in June, so I can really use any coupon for one of these Ortliebs, please private message me. Thx in advance again.

BTW, I have absolutely no affiliation with David or BestRest. Just a very happy customer (and he is a stand up guy).

I think saddle man has exactly what you are looking for, it's a bag with metal mesh already in it. I thought it was pretty neato. Just go to the saddleman website and noodle around, I don't remember what it was called.

I bought a couple of pacsafes to use on my mexico trip. I never used them. I had a dry bag strapped to the backseat, it was always there and unmolested when I returned.
