Adventure-proof packing and gear systems innovator Giant Loop has expanded its double-ended 100% waterproof duffel offerings to three with the travel-ready 70-liter Columbia Dry Bag, new for the 2015 GL Moto Collection. Better than top-loading duffels, the Columbia Dry Bag opens from both ends, providing quick access to gear without unstrapping the Dry Bag from the motorcycle.
Four integrated anchor straps secure the Columbia Dry Bag to virtually any large motorcycle make or model. Compatible with GL’s Siskiyou Panniers and most hard luggage, the Columbia Dry Bag includes a shoulder strap and two molded carry handles, and its airline-friendly carry-on luggage size makes it the go-to choice for fly-and-ride motorcycle travel.
An exterior mesh “wet” pocket with zippered access from both sides separates wet gear from dry gear inside, or provides quick storage for travel documents, maps and other small, flat items. Multiple heavy-duty D-ring attachment points add stability when riding off-road. Lash points can be used to secure GL’s Possibles Pouch or other lightweight gear to the outside of the Columbia Dry Bag.
Made in USA and RF-welded with military-specification components, the Columbia Dry Bag is backed by a limited lifetime warranty. Unrolled, flat dimensions are 45” x 20”. USA MSRP is $170.
Giant Loop’s three double-ended waterproof duffels are named for Oregon rivers, and the largest Dry Bag takes its name from the mighty Columbia River, which forms the border between Washington and Oregon, draining the entire Pacific Northwest region.
Giant Loop adventure proof motorcycle and snowmobile packing and gear systems are available from international distributors, as well as from a network of dealers throughout the USA. Giant Loop designs and tests products in Bend, Oregon. For all the details, go to giantloopmoto.com.
