    How did they hold up an did you like them?

    Thanks for the reply, looks like they don't make that exact model anymore. Those seem very square, a soft box kind of set up, which I like. They all seem to have a taper to them now. So, I'll have to go play "in serch of"

    Could be, may need to look for something more rugged and water resistant. Not sure if these would keep trail dirt out to well.

    i really liked them, they held up well for as long as i had them which was only a few years but they were good for me.i got mine off ebay for around 150.00 at the time.

    I have run two sets of them with the Turbo City racks. They are very stable and they hold a fair amount of gear. I think that each bag has two pockets and a rain cover. The only down side is if you over pack the bags you can bugger the zippers. The setup is also a little wide if you are doing tight trails.

    Thanks to you all.

    I like the older model Tour Masters, if I can find some. They would work well for when the trip is more paved, then a set of the Wolfman bags, when the trip is more dirt.I like the looks of the TCI rack, looks like it would keep all my stuff right where I put it. And that added ability to carry a rotopax for some added range.

    Mostly back/forest/gravel road exploring and camping, I don't plan on any single/tight tracks, but we all know how that can change.
