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

5. Kriega Overlander 30 Liter Panniers Set ($299)

If you are looking for something with a bit more carrying capacity and waterproof construction, the Kriega Overland 30 Soft Panniers are a good option. They have a lot of carrying capacity, but are ultra-light for their size at just 3.3 pounds (1.6 kg). These Kriega Overlander 30 soft panniers are 100% dust and waterproof and mount with no frames, for the toughest of adventures. Two 15 liter drypacks mount without racks and are highly adjustable to fit virtually any Dual Sport motorcycle. Special loops in the straps make it easy to attach additional Kriega luggage to the panniers. The bags are constructed of ultra-tough, double-stitched 1000D Cordura with reinforced sides. To install the bags, the rear fender needs to be drilled to fit the rack loops. After the initial installation of the rack loops, the bags can be easily mounted or removed 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.
