The Great Basin saddle bag has a handy roll closure that seals water and dust and offers a greater range of compression and expandability. Other riding-friendly benefits: handles from the Giant Loop brand that also serve as compression straps on the side, a set of 3 RF-welded waterproof inner liner Saddlebag Dry Pods with vent valves and drains in the bottom of the "legs" of the Saddlebag that allow water escape if it manages to penetrate the highly water-resistant shell (yes, we understand - we have also submerged our bikes in streams of crossings!). Made in America. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty against defects.
