Winter in Utah, may not be riding for a while. Hip Belt looks to be good quality, holds all my riding tools except the tube. I can also get a small bottle of water in the bag. Lots of compartments and hold downs so tool don't rattle around. I would recommend. Well see how it holds up through the summer.

So far this MSR bag has been perfect for my needs. I use it on the back fender of my dirt bike and have not had a single problem. I do not know the longevity yet only have 50 miles on it, but all else is five star for me.

The bags are excellent initial build quality and mayerial. I researched a ton as I do with all purchases to make sure I all getting the right product at the right price and this was hands down the winner. Fits my Drz400sm perfect and my buddy bought the same for his wr250r and he has the same opinion of them being top notch. They are good for light day touring and maybe an overnight camping trip if you use it for necessities and had your sleeping gear and tent loaded separate.

I like the fact that it attaches to the front of my chest protector. It makes getting a water bottle out easy. I find that it does not hold a conventional water bottle along with my wallet, cell phone, and car keys very well so I was a bit disappointed in that. The other pockets don't expand so i cant really put anything in them, only the main compartment. All of those things barely fit but i wish i could keep them in separate compartments. I will probably now look at a camelbak next.

Good bag for the money. Comfortable belt, two water bottles and any other crap I stuff in it and I don't even know I have it on. The zippers are solid and it holding up well.

This pack is a nice size and very well constructed. The only improvements I can think of would be to shorten the useless straps (or eliminate them entirely)that wrap around the pack and to perhaps give us some color options. Also, my pack did not have a pad in it, though it does have a compartment for one. Fortunately, I was able to take the foam rubber pad out of an old YOKO pack and it fit perfectly.
