    Introducing our 100% Waterproof Survivor Edition Adventure Dry Bags. All are made from a high quality 24oz rugged Tarpaulin PVC that’s specially coated for strength and to help prevent slipping and marking. These bags were designed to work with factory and aftermarket tail racks, seats, and saddlebag racks on most popular Adventure and Dual Sport bikes. All bags feature a “no hassle” LIFETIME warranty, electronically heat welded seams and an air tight roll closure system which ensures that no water enters the bag even in the harshest of downpours.

    Mounting the duffle bags is a breeze utilizing anodized heavy duty quick release cam buckles and strong nylon soft tie webbing and can be mounted across or along the seat or tail section. Hi-Visibility reflective accents are integrated into the bags compression straps that also easily adjust to the volume of the bags contents, keeping it snug and compact. Strong D-rings allow more mounting options and provide mounting points for additional items you may want to bring with you. The saddlebags have our popular universal mounting system but also have the ability to individually mount to most OE and aftermarket saddlebag racks utilizing strong top and bottom compression straps.

    Extreme Adventure riders will have two sizes to choose from. A Medium Bag has an approximate capacity of 39 liters while the Large Bag has a mammoth 71 liter capacity. The Survivor Edition Dry Bags come in three exciting colors, Hi-Visibility Yellow, Orange and Black.

    Suggested Retail Price;
    Survivor Dry Bag – Medium $74.95 Dimensions 20”L x 10”W x 12”H 40L Approx. Capacity

    Mine showed up yesterday from RMATVMC. They seem well build and waterproof, but the true test will be the first overnighter. :evil

    Anyone tried these bags? They look like a reasonable alternative to the Wolfman or DrySpec dry bags at a lower price point. Any feedback would be appreciated!

    We have the side bags and rear bag in stock and have sold quite a few. To be honest, I can't speak for person use or experience other than checking them out in the store and mocking them up to bikes, but they are very well made and do compare to some of the other higher end brands. If you may be interested in trying a set, please PM me.

    Thanks,

    I recently purchased a set of Adventure Dry Saddlebags and used them for a week of rain & mud in Colorado. Bags held up well, never sagged or shifted, kept everything dry and look pretty good on my old Harley. I think they are an awesome deal and hope to eventually get a top bag. [​IMG]

    I have yet to find a seller of these bags who offers the Neoprene Saddlebag Pads listed as on option in the installation intructions.

    Without these, the bag's material is laying directly against the bike, be it the seat, side panel, side rack, etc...very susceptible to excellerated wear on the typical dual sport bike.

    That was my observation anyways...not intended to be a flaming of the bags.

    OK I see the Neoprene Pads are available under the Spirit line of saddlebags under the Accessory section. I thought they'd be listed under the Survivor series...

    I have a large survivor bag combined with my wolfman saddle bags. It works well. Very easy on & off but stays put. A friend had the wolfman duffle and it was a PITA to take on and off. I'm short so I even managed to tip over a couple times :lol3 and everything stayed put nicely. Some rain blew in and then left quickly one evening. It wasn't a big monsoon dump or anything but my gear stayed dry. I also used one of the straps to hold my camera so I could use the self timer. Added bonus that it makes an impromptu tri-pod!


    So, I'm adding this note to my post. Tonight I loaded up for another trip on my F8. When I flipped the Nelson Rigg bag over to clean it, I saw two holes had rubbed into the bottom of the bag from my Touratech tail rack. The bag should still be waterproof cause there's two layers of material with some kind of rigid material in between. I used gorilla tape to fasten some rubber pads over the two holes. Hopefully that takes care of the problem.
