Rear Harness + Dry Bag DGS
Saddle harness and seam-sealed dry bag which attaches under your seat. The tapered 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 saddle harness features a 7 strap system to allow easy loading and a secure fit of the dry bag. Combined with strategically placed stiffening and Hyperlon patches, this results in minimal 'tail wag' and an adjustable wheel clearance angle.
The saddle harness and dry bag have been specifically designed to be used together. Opposing buckles on the dry bag clip to matching buckles on the harness, but can also be clipped to each other when the dry bag is removed from the harness to be used as a handle.

Underside Mounting Loops
Additional mounting loops on the underside of the harness allow you to attach a second bungee cord for additional gear storage (size medium and large only).
The harness should be able to attach to the seat-post without issue, provided care is taken when fitting the seat-post strap and there is sufficient clearance to the rear tyre (at full suspension compression where applicable). Please take into account the under-seat to tyre clearance when ordering.
Secure 'anti-sway' fit
ROBO-KIWI seat harnesses and dry bags feature a unique 7 strap system, ensuring a smooth ride without 'tail wag', while providing an adjustable fit to your bike. The dry bag clips directly to the harness with tension straps pulling the load up and away from your wheel.
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.
Side Padding & Protection
Closed cell foam laminated to the external fabric protects your bike frame and provides structure.
Waterproof Dry Bags
Velcro closures allow for easy removal of excess air to ensure a secure and tight load. While the bags are seam-sealed and 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.
Hypalon® reinforcement patches
Hypalon® reinforcement patches provide strap adjustment options, increased grip and protection for your bike frame.
Highly reflective logos keep you visible from all directions at night.
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.
How to pack it
Attach the empty harness to your seat, clipping the side buckles through the seat rails and fastening the velcro around your seat post. Pack the tapered dry bag (place heavy, dense items in the nose, and lighter, bulkier items towards the rear), roll the top so that it’s nice and tight, then insert into the harness, clip the opposing buckles on the dry bag clip to the matching buckles on the harness and tighten all the straps. The harness remains in place when you remove the dry bag, allowing for quick transitions.
