    Xl water proof duffel

    I am looking for a large to extra large waterproof duffel.
    Any suggestions or sources? My budget is about $75.00.

    I use the yellow ones and have never had one leak yet.
    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.
    I answer to Roy, Chief, or Sarg.

    I've been using an Ortlieb Rack-Pack bag for years.

    For some reason, Aerostich doesn't stock the XL size, but BestRest does:
    http://www.bestrestproducts.com/p-11...rack-pack.aspx

    BestRest price is for an XL is currently $86, so it's a little more than you were planning on, but not too bad. DON'T see his "list price" of $105 and get confused! BestRest had a killer deal on the Rack-Pack bags at the MOA Rally in Redmond, OR last year. I think I paid something like $65 for my "spare" XL Ortlieb during the sale!

    My XL Ortlieb holds my custom Wiggy's sleeping bag (42"X92") in a compression sack, my ThermaRest (30 X 77 X 2.5") rolled up, rain liners for my Motoport gear, a size 3XLT fleece jacket, etc. My point is that this bag will hold a LOT of stuff. Probably more stuff than a lot of folks take. I lost 1/2 a Jesse bag's capacity to my CPAP, so I now have to pack a little more on top.

    I've been using my current yellow Ortlieb for years, with no apparent signs of wear. Pretty much like new, except kind of a black color on the bottom from rubbing on my BestRest tool plate as I stroll about the country on my GS!

    Boat Bags

    They are available at Bass Pro or Cabela's quite cheap and are very H2o proof! I have used them on the back of my GSA for years cause I hate the aluminum cases.

    Thumbs up Ortlieb

    Orlieb all the way.... love the top loading fact... used the roll down type sea bags for years, but what a pain to find anything in them. Orlieb never leaked on me!!
    Keep the rubber side down!!
