Soft luggage recommendation for S-10

Hey Tenere friends. I have the OEM hard bags, which I have been happy with. I'm looking to try a soft luggage option now though, for a lighter bike, and better off road durability. Any recommendations for something waterproof and easy mounting? I'll need the hard mounted racks too.

How about a Giant Loop Great Basin?

I like how now hard racks are required.

Yea I like how you don't need racks with those.
Not sure about the design though. I would lose my top dry bag spot, and it seems to put the weight up pretty high.

I just threw the NR mini over my klx. Nice fit! I just wanted something small to toss in some day-tripping stuff. Seems like a good quality product. Has not been road tested yet, sorry to report.

If i can jump in also...Im wondering the same as i am in the same situation with my yamaha luggage. Keep the yamaha stuff for when i will be primarily on street with my brothers who dont have adventure bikes yet. For my more off road oriented rides I would prefer to have the soft luggage..for various reasons... I have a set of motocentric I used on my Versys that will work but is only 26 L expanded. Not sure that is enough capacity for what i want to do on the Tenere..It also looks like we would need to fashion some sort of brace on the right side to keep the bag out of the wheel. Left may be OK with the exhaust shield giving some support. Depends how far they come down.

The red versys above looks just like mine I had.. looks like he has some sort of rack on there for support...I like those bags and the others mentioned, just need to check capacity vs my motocentric and how to add a bit of support.

My dad uses the Wolfman products combined with a Givi rack. Tons of storage and features on the Wolfman stuff. Kinda spendy though.

Hmmm... looking at the suggestions above, all but the wolfman Rocky Mtn have the same or less capacity than my Motocentric. But I like they are waterproof and better suited for offroad where my motocentrics are more sport bike bags. But... I hate spending $$ when something I already have will work. Would rather spend those bucks elsewhere...hmmm...what to do...

A nice touch with the Kriega bags is that the inside liner is white so that makes it a little easier to find your stuff when you're digging thru there.

I've used Ortlieb saddle bags, swapping between my Wee and my Bonny SE.

Both bikes have racks (installed by previous owners) so rubbing is not a problem.

With the saddle bags, a MotoFizz tail bag, and a tank bag, I have plenty of capacity.

So you have the ortlieb saddle bags... not the speed? The saddles have 52 L ... those do look nice and the price is good... $183 at rocky mtn. I like the looks, setup and price of the wolfman expedition a bit better... maybe...but the wolfman appear to be much smaller.

Lots of great suggestions so far and some I haven't considered. I really like the wolf man ones but yes they are pricey. It seems you kinda need the frames to make it secure enough for side luggage. On the plus side you can move them from bike to bike..
I need to check out those Kreiga ones now.

Im just not sure how much capacity I really need. Im just getting into wanting to camp from the bike and in process of getting a good tent, sleeping bags etc... I would like to share whatever bags I get with my DRZ and the bigger / $$ wolfmans may be too big on the drz.. the expeditions would be great on the drz though.

We r still going to have to find some way of fitting a bracket to the Tenere oem rack...at least on the right side. I kinda enjoy coming up with stuff like that so I'll have to look into It.
