ADV NewsSneak Peek: Wolfman to Unveil Completely Revamped Luggage Line

Sneak Peek: Wolfman to Unveil Completely Revamped Luggage Line

Next Gen Wolfman soft bags are now fully waterproof without liners or covers.

Published on 11.13.2019

Since 1992, Wolfman Luggage has been creating high-quality, durable soft bags for moto travelers, adventure riders and trail riders alike. Many of their most popular bags like the Enduro Tank Bag, Expedition Duffel and E-12 saddlebags have been around for years with only small refinements in their design. Now for 2020, Wolfman is announcing they have completely revised and refreshed their entire line of soft bags. Yes, everything is new! 

Starting with a blank slate, Eric Hougen, owner of Wolfman Luggage, used his decades of knowledge in product design, combined with the latest materials and Radio Frequency (RF)-welding construction technologies available, to re-envision the lineup. His goal was to reinvigorate the product line while maintaining the Wolfman DNA to ensure the company’s leadership position in the motorcycle soft luggage industry well into the future.

We got a confidential sneak peek of the new line recently during the KTM Adventure Rally and the new bags are impressive. Bags that were previously made with a vinyl or stitched ballistic nylon fabric are now made with a new 3-layer heavy-duty TPU shell. A layer of 840 D TPU on the outside, 840 D Nylon in the center, and bright yellow (to make it easy to find items) 840 D TPU on the inside are precision RF Welded together for a completely waterproof, significantly more durable shell, and a more-modern look. 


The new material and construction process also opens up new possibilities for sophisticated features, while maintaining a 100% waterproof shell that does not require additional inner liners or plastic covers. All of Wolfman’s 2020 bags will share the new high-tech construction for a waterproof, durable design that is ready for the harshest conditions.

Many of Wolfman’s most popular bags will return to the lineup using the new watertight construction, along with a refined look and redesigned features. There’s even a refreshed logo with a reflective Wolf on every bag. 

Wolfman will unveil their 2020 luggage line to the public at the 2019 IMS Long Beach motorcycle show November 22nd to the 24th. Be sure to stop by the Wolfman booth at 3 pm Friday Nov 22nd for the big reveal! The next gen Wolfman soft luggage will be available late winter 2020.

  1. Looks good, I like the new mounting pads and attachment options that the base pads offer, lighter and more flexible then others are offering. Looking forward to seeing it in L.B..

  2. I have their old Daytrippers and Enduro tank bag. My Daytrippers are close to being finished. Was hoping to buy a new pair. *sigh* I really dislike the TPU material. It may be stronger and waterproof but feels like I’m mounting drybags on my bike. 🙁 Really wish they still offered the old material. In the end I bought from another company. Too bad really.
