Tillamook Dry Bag and Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder Featured in Dirt Rider Magazine

Dirt Rider Magazine (Gas Bag and Tilamook Bag)
Thanks to Dirt Rider Magazine‘s Seiji Ishii for the kind words regarding our 38-liter, waterproof Tillamook Dry Bag. His review published in Dirt Rider Magazine’s August 2016 issue confirms the strength, versatility and reliability of one of one of our most popular double-ended waterproof bags. Ishii points out that the Tillamook Dry Bag can be used in more situations than just the back of a motorcycle, including canoeing, kayaking, and rafting adventures (as well as snow mobiles, snow bikes, ATVs, UTVs and 4x4s!). The rolling closures at either end and the radio-frequency welded seams prevent water from entering and damaging contents – and our double-ended design provides easy access to gear from both ends without unstrapping the Dry Bag. “Think of it as a tube with a waterproof roll-top closure at both ends. This allows access to the contents from either side of the bag, on or off the bike. It also allows extreme adjustability to the volume of the bag.” Ishii used the Giant Loop Tillamook Dry Bag during a weeklong adventure motorcycle rally, the KTM Adventure Rider Rally in Crested Butte, Colorado. “The week of riding included trails that were so rough that metal chassis components were breaking on bikes, but the Giant Loop bag remained unscathed. The closures never hinted at opening and all seams and webbing remained unharmed. Rain, creek crossing, and puddles were plentiful, but there was zero water entry.”

Giant Loop offers this innovative double-ended waterproof dry bag design in three sizes: Rogue Dry Bag (17 liters), Tillamook Dry Bag (38 liters) and Columbia Dry Bag (70 liters). The Rogue Dry Bag and Tillamook Dry Bag are designed to integrate with the compression straps on Giant Loop’s Coyote Saddlebag and Great Basin Saddlebag – or they can be used independently by strapping them to a tail rack or Giant Loop’s Siskiyou Panniers. The Columbia Dry Bag features its own integrated anchor strap system (included with the Dry Bag, in addition to a convenient shoulder straps for off-bike carrying), an external wet/dry pocket and two carry handles. Because it meets airlines carry-on luggage size requirements, it also makes a super rugged, waterproof, versatile adventure travel bag. The Columbia integrates with Giant Loop’s Siskiyou Panniers and also makes a great companion for Giant Loop’s new rack-mounted Round The World Panniers.

In the same issue, Dirt Rider also featured Giant Loop’s Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder in its “Gear Bag” section. “Fuel your off-road passion with, what else, extra fuel. This bag-o-gas gives you one extra gallon,” Dirt Rider wrote. The Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder allows convenient fuel transport for motorcycles, snow bikes, snowmobiles, ATVs, UTVs and 4x4s, by carrying a gallon of gas in a flexible package. The multi-layer bag is a “go light, go fast, go far” solution for carrying extra fuel on any occasion and rolls up when empty for easy storage.

Giant Loop Review: Tillamook Dry Bag, Rogue Dry Bag in BMW Owners News

By | BMW, Giant Loop Gear, Reviews | No Comments

Thank you Kit J. Vercella for the comprehensive review of Giant Loop’s Tillamook Dry Bag and Rogue Dry Bag in the January 2014 “Kit And Caboodle” column of BMW Owners News magazine. This is our favorite part:

“A personal side note: Although not necessarily relevant to your purchasing decision, there is something heartening about a group of adventure riders down the street who have the vision and technical expertise to create top-shelf, functional motorcycle gear every bit as good (maybe even better) than their corporate rivals worldwide.”
