5 Minimalist Saddlebags for Ultralight Packers

A toothbrush, flip-flops and spare pair of underwear are all you really need.

Published on 05.06.2014

1. Wolfman Daytripper 12 Liter Saddlebags ($145)

The Wolfman Daytripper Saddle Bags are perfect for ultralight packers, protruding just 3 1/8 inch (8 cm) from the sides of the bike. The rackless mounting system makes it easy to install or remove the bags quickly and highly adjustable mounts are able to fit virtually any Dual Sport motorcycle. These versatile little saddlebags include 8 D-ring attachments that allow you to strap on additional luggage. The Daytrippers are made of highly durable 1680 denier ballistic fabric with a non-scratch surface on the bike side, along with heavy-duty zippers. However, these bags are not waterproof.

I use a soft rack kit from Green Chile Adventure Gear. Its tough and lightweight and you can carry pretty much any bag so you can go minimalist or pack for a multiday camping trip easily.

I have also found that other brand bags like my Wolfman Expedition saddlebags actually haul better when I attach it to my Green Chile rack.

Mosko Moto has some great stuff too, really love my “Reckless 80” rackless bags. The beaver-tail is bad-ass for hauling firewood, beer, you name it.

Being exceedingly cheap, I just pick up a set of $20 doggy saddle bags at the pet store. Usually run the straps under the seat.

VUZ makes a line of quality durable dry bags which are a great value. I love my Wolfman gear but there are much less costly choices out there.
