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 alos uses a new innovative design which allows the bag to expand easier, making loading and unloading a breeze.

Bought this bag for a 7,700 mile trip across US to hold items I wanted to take to hotel room each night without having to unload the side cases. The bag functioned flawlessly. The "D" rings on the bags were used to anchor the bag to the bike and never failed. Temps from 32 (mix of ice and rain) up to 106+ were not an issue and bag contents stayed dry as packed. The medium bag was more than roomy enough for all my clothes and a few electronics, in fact, the small one would have been plenty. The yellow color does get dirty, but cleans up pretty well.
I bought the Wolfman bag based on a recommendation from an Iron Butt Rally rider, who knew his stuff when it came to bags. Very happy with bag and with prompt service, as always from RevZilla.
Yes, I recommend this product.

FIT: I am 5' 7", jean size 33'W x 30"L, and originally thought I needed a size M. It was too tight and I returned for a large. The large fit ok in waist with liner, etc, and without liner using waist adjustments was fine. The leg length was too long, and at the bottom, they seemed almost bell-bottom shaped. Held shows a short length option for the large size, but it was not available, so I took these to a local tailor, who was able to raise the knee armor pockets and shorten the length to my specs. Best $50 I ever spent, as the fit now is terrific.
Quality: They arrive in a very nice Held zipper bag, and are really very nice looking pants. These are well made, as you would expect at this price point and their top brand construction components and Held legacy. They feature good, deep, zippered pockets on both sides, sturdy hardware and double closure at the fly. They include nice metal buttons for the optional braces. The knee armor is very good, the hip armor should be replaced with the optional upgrade. They have very good venting and their light color helps reflect heat. The leather seat area really does keep you from sliding in the saddle. The Gore-tex liner zips in at the top and at the bottom of each leg for a secure fit.
Recommendation: if your a perfect fit for these or have a good tailor, go for it... you won't be disappointed.

STYLE AND QUALITY: The jacket is shipped in a nice zipper Held bag, and the overall style is top notch. This is one of the best looking jackets I've seen. This is not a lightweight jacket, with the back armor upgrade it weighs 7.5 lbs. Build quality is evident throughout, it doesn't disappoint and compared to other high-end jackets it easily justifies the price.
FIT: I'm 5'7", average build (shirt size 16x32) and had tried the jacket in medium, which fit ok with the liner removed, but with the liner and a couple layers underneath would have been too tight for my comfort. The large fits nicely, even without the liner. The side and arm adjustments provide sufficient range to dial in a good fit depending on under layers.
FEATURES: There are nine air intake vents on the jacket, and three exhaust vents on the back. The magnets, arm straps and neck flap retainer all work well to hold the vents open at speed. This jacket provides about the maximum ventilation available in a four season jacket or one that's not full mesh. The shoulder and elbow armor are first rate, the back pad should be replaced with the upgrade. There are too many pockets to count. The cell phone pocket is too small for my OtterBox encased iPhone.
RECOMMENDATION: This jacket fits the bill for year round touring all weather gear that should last for years of service.
