Here's our answer to carrying your compressible sleeping bags, down jackets or any other soft gear. When used saddlebag style, our stuff packs are attached using two connecting straps, which go over, under or around the seat. The bottoms face forward, into the weather. They can also individually attach by lacing their integral web strap around the handlebars, front forks, sissy bars, back rests or grab rails. This is one of the most versatile packs we make.
The packs have a large, extra panel for attaching all the straps adding protection against abrasion; and a large external pocket with hook and loop closure to keep small items handy. This pocket also works as a lash down flap, adjustable with quick release buckles. A large weather flap at the drawstring closure keeps belongings from the elements.
The Big Stuff Packs measure 11" x 18", and carry about 50% more than the Standard Stuff Packs. They work best for synthetic sleeping bags. They are made of black Cordura nylon. When not in use, they role to a bundle of approximately 6" x 13" inches. This small bundle may be strapped to the bike or stuck in a tank pack, just in case!
These packs work great for carrying sleeping bags on your full dresser too.
