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

3. Giant Loop MoJavi 13.5 Liter Saddlebags ($208)

The MoJavi Saddlebags are ultra compact, sticking out just 4 inches (10 cm) on the sides. Constructed of super tough trucker’s tarp material and waterproof zippers, these bags will keep your gear dry and protected in most conditions (Giant Loop recommends you treat the seams with seam sealer to maximize water protection). A removable top bag includes 2 cam-buckle straps that make it possible to securely strap on more luggage or gear. The universal mounting system makes it easy to attach or remove the bags from nearly any Dual Sport motorcycle in seconds.

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.
