New for 2014:

Possibles Pouch
Adds 2-liter easy access storage capacity to Giant Loop saddlebags and panniers — and any other secure attachment point. Made in USA with 18 oz. vinyl coated polyester Bomb Shell construction, beefy YKK coil zipper protected by 14 oz. vinyl coated polyester storm flap, multiple MOLLE-style webbing lash points and reflective tabs for visibility. Named for the leather pouches carried by frontier explorers to keep critical gear, or “possibles,” in one handy location.

Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag
Completely re-envisioned and redesigned for 2014, the new Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag fits virtually any motorcycle and keeps all the essentials handy and out of the way when standing on the footpegs. The Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag consists of three components, which can be used individually or in any combination: harness, center case and pannier pockets. The pannier pockets also can be added to Giant Loop’s 2014 Fandango/Diablo Tank Bags. The 2-liter center case secures to the harness with cam buckle straps. Two 2-liter Pannier Pockets attach to tank, shrouds or engine guards. Named for saddle pads used by rodeo cowboys.

Fandango Tank Bag Pro
Major updates of Giant Loop’s largest tank bag (8 liters) focus on expandability, electronics compatibility, and features driven by rider feedback. An electronics pass-through enables on-bike charging and power inside the tank bag and/or the clear vinyl map pocket top. The Fandango’s underside includes a concealed document pocket, and two separate side zippers for easy mounting to harness. Full length interior lining with hook-and-loop accepting fabric, movable divider with elastic tire pressure gauge holder and slots, exterior mesh pocket and D-ring mounts for new optional Buckin’ Roll pannier pockets (2 liters each side) are key new features. Fuel fills are now easily accessed by simply unzipping either side from the harness, and the concave front allows vent hoses to breath. Fits virtually any motorcycle, including dirt, dual sport, adventure and sport machines with metallic or non-metallic tanks/shrouds.

Diablo Tank Bag Pro
The Diablo Tank Bag (4 liters) updates are similar to its larger cousin, the Fandango Tank Bag, while remaining true to its minimalist, slim, trim design. An electronics pass-through enables on-bike charging and power inside the tank bag and/or the clear vinyl map pocket top. Full interior lining with hook-and-loop accepting fabric, movable divider with elastic tire pressure gauge holder, exterior mesh pocket and D-ring mounts for new optional Buckin’ Roll pannier pockets (2 liters each side) are key new features. Fuel fills are now easily accessed by simply unzipping either side from the harness, and the concave front allows vent hoses to breath. Fits virtually any motorcycle, including dirt, dual sport, adventure and sport machines with metallic or non-metallic tanks/shrouds.

The Rogue Dry Bag will be part of the 2013 products to be on display at the EICMA show.

Late season 2013:

Several late-season 2013 introductions will also be shown to the European motorcycle industry and consumers for the first time at the EICMA show. Two double-ended waterproof roll-tops, the Tillamook Dry Bag (38 liters) and the Rogue Dry Bag (17 liters), add rugged storage to Giant Loop’s saddlebags and panniers — and virtually any motorcycle. Pronghorn Straps, available in three color-coded lengths, secure gear with dynamic tension of stretch polyurethane and virtually unbreakable fasteners. And Rubber Boa Straps use simple, rugged military-spec shock cord and injected molded hooks to secure adventure motorcycle gear to a dirt bike’s plastic fenders.

Giant Loop adventure proof motorcycle packing systems are available from international distributors, as well as from a network of dealers throughout the USA. Giant Loop designs and tests products in Bend, Oregon and manufactures everything in the USA (except for the Canadian made Pronghorn Straps). For all the details, go to www.giantloopmoto.com.
