Wolfman Expedition Dry Duffel Bag Wolfman went all out on these duffels and came up with a great series of roll-top, 100 waterproof bags, designed specifically for motorcycle use. Wolfman upgraded the fabric to 22oz vinyl for the body and incredible 34oz for the sides and uses a waterproof webbing for the top opening to prevent water wicking into the bag. Wolfman also uses a new innovative design which allows the bag to easily expand, making loading and unloading a breeze. Features 100 Waterproof radio frequency welded seams Ultra tough 22oz vinyl body and 34oz vinyl sides (For years of use.) Simple effective roll top design 4 compression straps, two over the body, one at each end Deluxe carry handle Removable shoulder strap and two mounting straps included Made in the USA Dimensions and Capacity Small Expedition Dry Duffel Width 20 Height 11 (with the ability to get taller) Front-to-back 11 Capacity 33 Liters+ Medium Expedition Dry Duffel Width 24 Height 11 (with the ability to get taller) Front-to-back 11 Capacity 40 Liters+ Large Expedition Dry Duffel Width 28 Height 11 (with the ability to get taller) Front-to-back 11 Capacity 47 Liters+ Note Product photos show 2 D-rings on each side at the bottom of the bag below the Wolfman logo, however production versions of the bags feature only 1 D-ring per side.

Purchased both the 22" and 24" versions for long term touring. Turns out, I only needed the 24". Holds all my camping equipment: Tent, sleeping bag, kermit chair, air pad, jetboil, blanket, towel, hatchet, LuxuryLite cot, and all the other little stuff you need for camp.
I know that when I do end up at at hotel after 3-4 days of riding, I can just unstrap it and drop it on the floor in the hotel room - I won't need anything in it.
I've used it on many rides, some over three weeks. Never leaked. Still not showing any wear. Gave the 22" to a friend. He loves it too.
I do note however that they no longer include the second set of bottom d-rings. If anyone at wolfman is reading this - It is a feature I use every time to make ensure that my pack straps are not flapping in the wind. HIGHLY recommend that you add them back to the product. No one cares if it cost an extra dollar.

Ordered this for my Tourmaster Transition 3 (Large) and it did not fit. This is a thick pad - when you measure the pocket in your jacket, make sure to give another half inch each way.
It did however fit perfectly in my Joe Rocket jacket which is the one I wear in the summer anyway. Will re-order another one for the Tourmaster.
Interesting side-note. Because the pad is thick and heavy, you can feel it on your back. For me, this is a constant reminder not to slouch on the bike and has made long days in the saddle much less painful at the end of the day.

I've had this jacket for just over 2 years and 25k miles. Mine did not have the stitching problem. I ride year around and try to get out for a multi-week tour or two every summer. I use a gerbing full jacket liner for when it is cold out and open all the vents when it's warm. I've ridden in everything from 26 degrees F to 115F. It's not going to be comfortable in anything above 95F, but on tour I only take one jacket and this is it. Low points for the back protector - didn't realize how flimsy it was until I removed it for washing. Ordered a replacement immediately. It's never leaked on me even in hours of downpours. Very happy customer.
