Front Harness + Dry Bag DGS
Harness and seam-sealed dry bag which attaches under your handle bars. The double-ended tube-style dry bag can be attached/removed quickly and easily while leaving the harness in place. This system is great for multi-sporters or adventure racers who need to be able to add/remove bags frequently at transitions.
The handlebar harness features a 3 strap system to allow easy loading of the dry bag - the centre strap holds the balanced load, while you tension the two outer straps for a secure fit.
The handlebar harness has been specifically designed for use with the dry bag, but can also be used for any suitable tube shaped item, such as a tent. It can also easily be paired with the Cafe Bag - the ideal companion for valuables and important items you want to keep close and convenient at stops.

Dual end closures
Easily centre the contents of the bag and access from both ends while it is on the bike
0-40mm EVA foam spacers on the harness adjust to fit around gear and brake cables for most handlebar configurations
Waterproof Dry Bags
Velcro closures allow for easy removal of excess air to ensure a secure and tight load. While the bags are waterproof for the purpose of bike packing (brief submersion, eg. river crossings, deep puddles, torrential rain, etc.), prolonged submersion could result in water wicking through the velcro closures. The dry bag is not recommended for kayaking, rafting or water-based sports.
Reflective Bungee Cords
External bungee cord, quick-release hooks and toggles keep your kit convenient, secure and safe. Ideal for stashing and accessing spare gear while riding.
Hypalon® tabs and reinforcement patches
Hypalon® tabs and reinforcement patches provide both a secure anti-slip fit and protection for your bike frame.
Made in New Zealand

What to put in it
This harness and bag system is ideal for spare clothing and other items which need to be kept dry. It can also be used to carry overnight food, cooker, etc. The centre of the bag is great for things that you don't need to access during the day, while the dual end closures allow quick and easy access to items you'll want during stops.
How to pack it
Attach the empty harness to your handle bars, positioning the foam spacers and straps carefully around your gear cables and brake lines (to ensure they’re not bent out of shape and function correctly). Clip the lower retainer strap around the bottom of the head tube. Tighten all straps for a secure fit. Pack the tube dry bag tightly, rolling the ends firmly, then insert into the harness and tighten all the straps. The harness remains in place when you remove the dry bag, allowing for quick transitions.
