Inspired by ultralight outdoor gears and minimalist design. The new Saddle Dry Bag comes with a bunch of updates and a simplified look.
Constructed from high quality 210D H/T Honeycomb with cire finishing & TPU coating, fully waterproof materials and optimized for durability and weight. As taped seams - Extra durability tri-layered seam tape.
The saddle rail locking straps, and the 3-point attachment system and roll top closure buckles with Aluminum G-hook by Duraflex and extreme weather seam tape, all work together to keep twists and sways to a minimum, light weight and super durable so you can focus on the trail ahead.
Various strap spacing provides the perfect match to most size riders. Roll top closure design allows you to squash the bag down to 8 liters in size or you can max it out to around 12 liters.
Has 3M™ reflective printing, the addition reflective bungee system allows you to carry more and you can choose to fasten it through the bag or not.
Capacity: 12 Liter (need a larger capacity bag? Check out out 18L version)

Weight: 260g / 0.6 lb
Size (L x W x H): 47 x 20 x 20 cm / 18.5" x 7.9” x 7.9”

I got this bag in cyber-black colour.
Good looking bag with the orange accents. Don't think it's 100% waterproof as when I look inside I can see a spot of daylight. There are no loops for attaching a tail light on my bag. Whereas the grey model appears to to have this. Why would the two colours have different features?
Bag packs nicely and doesn't droop much. It sways quite a bit but I don't notice when riding. Nylon of the bag is very thin and I hope it will stand up over time. All in all a decent bag but in my opinion could be way better.
Thanks for your review.
Once you do try the bag, hope you do like it and suit your needs.
With regards to your concern regarding if they are waterproof or not, they are fully waterproof. You will obviously be able to confirm this yourself, but this little video may perhaps shed some light:
As for wear and tear, and the material they are made from are ultralight but also sturdy and designed for backpacking use and what this entails. These have been very successfully used for years on long distance treks, the Great Divide trail and some 'around the world' bike tourers. Hopefully after some use, you will be happy with them and perhaps change your initial opinion.
For the 'sway' of the saddle bags. Almost all saddle bags will sway, depending on the terrain and riding style. We also have a very useful 'anti-sway' bar system that can be used on any saddle bag that you can use if this really becomes an issue. Those bars can also double as bottle cage holders. Info on that is here: https://cycletouring.shop/products/ani-sway-rack-for-bikepacking-saddlebags
Thanks again and we appreciate the purchase and review.
