    Bummer, but happy to see you coming out with even more products:clap I'm on the fence about these or the Rocky Mountain (can't get past the price to be honest), can you comment on whether there are even more choices in saddlebags coming down the pike?

    Also, how water resistant are the Ex-T sacks? If the bags themselves were treated with something like Scotchguard from new, and the Ex-T bags were used, would gear stay mostly dry in anything but torrential? Seems like a nice setup.

    Just get a couple of dry-bags like these:
    http://www.amazon.com/SealLine-Stor...olid=QBM0AMIWUART&coliid=I1NU86MXCPN4ZX&psc=1

    Or, if you want the tie-down loops, these:
    http://www.amazon.com/Sea-Summit-Ri...=1363045742&sr=8-25&keywords=sealline+dry+bag

    Each saddle bag would hold 2 of the 8-10L bags, or one 20L bag (2 10L Storm Sacks from the first link per saddle bag would probably fit best based on the dimensions).

    Looking at the EX-T bags, they're not going to be 100% waterproof because of the closure system, even if the material itself is.

    Yeah. Well, I ordered the bags. Once they get here, I'll take one down to REI and just mix n match until I find some dry bags that are the right size/dimensions. I thought about buying the ex-t bags, since they'll likely fit correctly, thus not losing space due to funny sized bags, but I think this will work fine.
    I sure wish Wolfman just had the liners available. hint, hint, hint.:rofl

    Pictures soon on my Tiger 800XC:clap:clap

    I'll be looking forward to the pics! Let me know which ones fit best. I got my racks and the Hoops for my Tiger 800 for now (along w/ the 50L Triumph bag), but am trying to decide between these or a pair of the larger Rocky Mountain bags for when I need to pack more.

    Liners are in the works...and lmychajluk is correct the EXT stuff sacks would not be a good waterproof option. REI is a good place to find waterproof stuff sacks for this stuff, I have used them myself many times. Thanks for continuing to push us nicely:D

    Bump

    Would love to have something fitted instead of making something else fit awkwardly.

    A guy wrote me and told me Exped 22 litre waterproof bags work perfect. I bought 2 of them from Sierra Trading Post for ~$10 per and they do fit great. Turned out to be a great deal... Plus they have a see through stripe down the side so you can tell what's in each bag,

    Wish I would have seen this earlier. I actually found a fantastic bag that was a little more expensive (but I supported a local business. It's cool): Sea To Summit Big River Dry Bag w/ oval base.

    20L seriously fits like it was made for the Monarch Pass. Unfortunately, our rainy weather stopped after right I bought them so that part hasn't been tested. The fit is good and I know they make a good product so I'm confident.

    i purchased a set of these bags. The 4 straps on the pannier are much too short to attach to the wolfman rack with my rotopax 1 gal on the rack. (2009 KLR).

    Any thoughts or tips? My trip is in a couple of days and no time to return them, any help will be appreciated, even a quick fix idea.


    EDIT: Since I'm in a hurry I called the fine folks at Wolfman. They explained they have a product just for rotopax extension and I ordered 2 day delivery. Crisis over and thanks again Wolfman
