Giant Loop Introduces New Collapsible, Rugged Liquid Reservoirs

Flexible, collapsible, expedition-ready bladders for transporting a range of fluids.

Published on 10.21.2021

Giant Loop has announced the release of a new collapsible liquid reservoir for overland travelers, off-road racers and powersports enthusiasts in general. Dubbed the Armadillo Bag, it is rugged enough to take a lot of trail abuse and is available in 1-, 2-, 3- and 5-gallon capacities.

The lightweight bags are highly flexible and designed for the safe temporary storage and transport of a broad range of essential automotive and powersports fluids. When empty, Armadillo Bags can be rolled up or packed flat for convenient storage, and at only 13oz for the 1-gallon bladder, they weigh a fraction of rigid plastic gas cans and metal containers which remain the same size whether full or empty.

To make them expedition ready, the bags employ a two-layer construction featuring an RF-welded inner bladder contained within and protected by a highly abrasion resistant sewn Cordura outer sleeve. Webbing and rubber-molded handles provide easy anchors to hang the reservoirs while filling and to grip the bags while dispensing liquids. Webbing daisy chains run the length of Armadillo Bags to prevent them from sliding out from under tie-down straps. For added convenience, the included plastic pour spout stows away in a pocket on the outer sleeve.

Each inner reservoir is individually pressurized and tested at the factory, and finished Armadillo Bags are subjected to multipoint random testing and inspections. According to Giant Loop, the materials themselves are compatible with hydrocarbon fuels, such as gasoline, diesel, kerosene and jet, as well as coolant, hydrocarbon based lubricants and other automotive and industrial fluids. However, allowed usage depends on local laws, rules and regulations in the countries where Armadillo Bags are being used.
