    Yeah he is in Canada, and there is definitely a strong Scottish heritage there. My wife is from Nova Scotia and even their province has an official tartan.

    These look awesome for my uses. I'm bike only and end up carrying a variety of items on my bike. The kayak sold me.

    Went to their site but did not see any prices (maybe I needed to click through all the legal mumbo jumbo first?) Anybody have some costs of this neat system?

    Cool video.. I was ready to hate it because it's just so KLR, then I loved it when he climbed the hanging bike; Then I saw the price, and I hate it again. $250? Really? It's webbing!

    yup, its just webbing,,, assembled into a pattern that someone had the idea to put together. is it really all that different from a flat plate of aluminum that only costs a few bucks? or a few feet of tubing that again only costs a few bucks?

    kinda like a moto jacket, its just a few yards of material that you can buy anywhere, until someone creates a design and makes it into a jacket.

    and have you ever seen what a motorcycle looks like before someone produces it? its just a pile of raw materials, almost worthless.

    :D i do agree with you though, seems a tad overpriced

    Here's a Green Chile Value Bundle. It's $269 and comes with 2 dry bags.

    http://www.greenchileadv.com/products/pecos-value-bundle

    The kit Brokentooth used in his video is the whole full kit. Depending on what you want to do you may not need all those different pieces. The whole thing is modular. So you can use as much or as little as you want.

    The Green Chile gear is made in the USA and has a lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects. Its also built to be adventure proof.

    Most straps are made with polyester or polypropylene. These are heavy nylon so they will last longer and have a much higher melting point. The buckles are cast metal, not stamped or plastic and the tensioners are built so that the tension part is not a weak point.

    Its true that they are made of webbing, but it has been turned into much more than just some cheap straps.

    you may not wish to pay that, but it's less than comparable hard or soft luggage, and you'd be hard pressed to replicate the function for less, I' m thinking . . .

    stuff is always too expensive, until you take a closer look ;-}
