adventure bags

Adventure bags what do you run and how do you like em. I was looking at the Givi Outback Trekker i like them a lot but we can't run a 48l on the exhaust side if im right so it have to be 37/37 or 48/37. What do you guys run and would you buy them again? Thanks

Not sure they qualify as "Adventure bags," but I have Shad SH36 paniers (left over from my Versys). They're nice, but I don't think I would go that route again given the chance. Too nice, and I'm too scared to off-road at all with them on the big AT. They're great bags if all you want to do is street ride...

I bought a set of these panniers. SOLOBOX
Pretty good price for hard boxes, and they're made local to the US. So far, I really like them. I did have to find a way to mount them to my rack, but that wasn't bad. For $350 per set, I'd definitely recommend. I have a 39L for the left side and a 33L for the right.

I run Heppco Becker racks on my AT. When needed I use Wolfman Expedition Dry Saddlebags. They are 19l each and they are a great cost conscious option. They are not as convenient to get on and off as some other options out there in my opinion. Furthermore not to go down the rabbit hole on the hard vs soft debate but I still think soft luggage is the safer option if you intend to go off road loaded up. If they were available at the time I would have probably gone with the Wolfman Rocky Mountain Saddle Bag as they are almost twice the capacity fully expanded. If I ever did get a set of hard boxes I would go with Jesse, but that would mean new racks too....so that probably won't happen on this AT for me. Good luck

I just ordered the Honda Panniers and Top Box complete set up for my 2017 AT . I realize they aren't the most highly regarded bags but I really like the quick mount and the fact you don't have to add a frame . I love looking at all the options and getting advice from fellow AT riders .

I have the backcountry Mosko Moto panniers, Mosko Moto duffel bag and their tank bag. Really like the support they give and the bulletproof material they use on their stuff. I transferred them from my KLR to my AT. It's all well thought out by riders who ride themselves in the backwoods, foreign countries and wherever the rode or adventure will take them. Even if you don't buy anything their website has lots of interesting information on their travels. I'm not sponsored or work for them, just really like their stuff.

I have the Honda plastic boxes which are fine at the moment, highly likely to upgrade to a set of Apduro panniers and then use a roll back on the back rather than a topbox.
