Rear Harness + Dry Bag UL
Weight: 290 - 330 g Capacity: 10.0 - 14.0 L
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 harness features a 4 strap system to allow easy loading of the dry bag - the two centre straps hold the balanced load, while you tension the two outer straps for a secure fit.
The 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.
Bag construction (UL)
Lightweight yet durable - quality made in New Zealand.
Cuben Fiber has been used as the main outer fabric, as it is light, durable and waterproof.
Side Padding & Protection
Closed cell foam laminated to the external fabric on all sides protects your bike frame and gives the bag structure.
Highly reflective logos keep you visible from all directions at night
Waterproof Dry Bag
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.
Fabrics & Colours (UL)
Choose from 3 external fabric colours for a unique setup that matches your bike or contact us for a completely custom look.
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 clips through the seat rails and fastening the velcro around your seat post. Pack the tapered dry bag, roll the top so that it’s nice and tight, 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.
