Tired of slipping seat bag buckles? This new bag eliminates the biggest problem with conventional seat bags: buckles that continuously slip.
By using pulley velcro attachment system, directly integrated with a very stiff polyethylene skid plate, we have designed a bombproof, no slip, seat bag attachment system. The velcro strap makes taking the bag on and off straightforward. The strap is fully replaceable. This system as designed between myself and local professional climbing guide(and mechanical engineer) Dan Zokaites. Dan and his wife Kelly have also ridden thousands of miles across Nepal. Kelly's family owns and operators the amazing San Juan Hut system for MTB tours from Telluride to Moab.
After two years of use during the Tour Divide race, I have never seen these bags slip.
The seat bags have a sewn in high-density polyethylene skid plate sewn in right over the tire. This plate also helps to compress the load as the velcro straps run right to it.
Built out of Dimension Polyant laminated X Pac fabrics. These fabrics are waterproof to 200 psi. The bottom panel and perimeter panels are from Xpac's Cordura laminated fabric. Far more durable than any other fabric they offer. My bags are very lightweight, 12-14 oz, depending on the size.
