    Yeah, the kriega probably overkill to use as a larger center bag for the mojavi.

    Following pic is from GL's website

    That dry bag setup would hit you in the butt if you stand while riding rough terrain, otherwise looks ok

    Compressing it down might work but need additional straps fixing points to do that ?

    Some dry bags are oval shaped which might be better for a low profile fit

    That's exactly what I'm talking about. It would be nice if the straps holding the dry bag were sewn on the bottom of the mojavi rather than through the loops on the top (where the pouch is fastened)

    It would hit you in the butt, but isn't the same scenario as the coyote.

    Any dealer/distributor can order for you. Most of the international distributors have orders in transit now.

    True, but as the list of dealers is long, and I'm sure not all of them have them in stock, can you tell us the names of a few US dealers how do have them in stock?

    Great news on the new dry bags for the stuff that really needs to be packed completely waterproof!

    Still loving the Coyote and Diablo setup on my Berg, just took it for a ride around the Alps. I can't even feel that it's there except when I slide my butt all the way back on the seat and use it as a brace when doing high speed runs. Works awesome for that!

    not quite the same. You get what you pay for when it comes to keeping your gear dry man.

    Sorry, no - I can carry far more gear completely waterproof for less than half the cost of this solution using quality stuff from Ortlieb or others. However one wishes to look at it, the fact remains - one now needs to pay close to six bills to get 50L of dry storage with a Great Basin.

    For soft gear, that's simply a ton of money per liter. To put the cost in perspective...the price per liter for Jesse Luggage (including mounts) is almost a wash with a Great Basin + waterproof liners. Great Basin: $579/50L. Jesse Odyssey II's: $1280/105L. Certainly very different designs for very different needs, but both are made in the USA and you can't convince me hard and soft bags cost the same per liter to manufacture.

    The premium is being paid (by me, anyway) for the design - nothing else. I could barely justify paying for the bag itself - no way will I be forking out another $150 to make it waterproof.

    Similar scenario.
    Looking at Teamftb's coyote setup, it appears he packs most of his gear in the sides of the coyote and keeps the center section low. Those side sections of the Coyote will hold a lot more gear down low compared to the Mojavi.

    However, if like you, I already had the Mojavi, I'd be looking for ways to accessorize it for longer trips rather than fork out another $330 for a coyote that isn't even water proof unless you pay another $100 for the dry bag inserts !

    Re adding a bigger center bag to the Mojavi, I think there are better options than the GL dry bags.
