Comments about Nelson Rigg Adventure Dry Saddlebags:
The Nelson-Rigg adv bags are a well made product at this price. I like the waterproof rolltop bags, I already own some German rolltop bags (to remain nameless here), but wanted these as everydayers that provide less risk financially should they get stolen, ripped, melted, etc. They are fine grocery getters, and appear capable of some credit card adv touring, just be aware of a few things: 1. The dreaded universal fitment. I'll be honest, it's not just Nelson-Rigg, but most of the manufacturers' bags that I've tried - they fit most bikes ok, but none very well. At least not mine. Apparently I need more lash points on the bikes and a better way to run straps around pipes and rear wheels. 2. Speaking of straps, they probably could have done away with the cinching straps, or come up with a better system of strap management. I don't intend to utilize the top cinch straps around town since they hinder the ingress/egress into and out of the bag, and there really isn't a preferred system to keep the unused straps from flipping back into the wheel or muffler. I'll have to call on some ingenuity to solve this one.I think Nelson-Rigg will have success with these bags, at least I hope so, since they are cost effective and fill a need for the adv touring market sub $200. I've had other N-R products, and from my experience, they are generally well designed and built to last.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
