See links below to volunteer for Clean Drink Adventures trips in Spring 2019!
Hello Giant Loop,
We’re back from our trip to Nepal and happy to report it was a huge success. Our Clean Drink Adventures team was able to provide safe drinking water solutions to as many as 700 people during our travels. In the coming weeks our volunteers on the ground will bump that number closer to 2,000 in the coming weeks.
As we traveled into the remote corners of the country, our medic, Jason McKinney, packed all of his medical equipment in Giant Loop bags. Not only did he keep us safe, but he was available to help anyone in need during out travels.
Below are some fun images and snippits you can use for social media. In the meantime I’m working on gathering more assets you can use for promotions.
The bags are currently in our office in Nepal and ready to do it all again. We have more trips planned for March, April, and May. The GL bags will be put to use every time.
Thank you so much for sending them along and we’re stoked to have GL as a CLEAN DRINK partner.

(BEND, OREGON USA) For the fifth consecutive year, expedition gear innovator Giant Loop has won a Powersports Business “Nifty 50” award for best new products. For 2018, it’s Giant Loop’s GL Pannier Mount, an ultralight, rugged, stable, quick-connect, quick-release, lockable solution for motorcycle soft luggage and equipment. Constructed of aluminum with a black powder coated finish, stainless steel hardware and a key lock mechanism, GL Pannier Mounts weigh just 3.6 lbs. per pair, including spare keys. In keeping with the company’s minimalist “go light, go fast, go far” design philosophy, GL Pannier Mounts feature just two moving parts, an anchor clasp and a lock, both of which are accessible without having to reach inside motorcycle luggage.
Although specifically designed for Giant Loop’s rack-mounted motorcycle soft luggage, Round The World Panniers and MotoTrekk Panniers, GL Pannier Mounts offer remarkably versatile solutions for attaching gear to motorcycle side luggage racks. Pre-drilled holes provide easy installation of RotoPax® gas cans, water cans and accessories, and strap slots enable virtually any other gear, tools or bags, to be secured to the GL Pannier Mounts with Giant Loop’s heavy-duty stretch polyurethane Pronghorn Straps.
GL Pannier Mounts are currently compatible with most side luggage rack designs featuring flat, vertical hoops constructed of 16-18mm round tubing. Examples include Givi Outback, Touratech pannier racks and the BMW R1200GS Adventure’s OE luggage racks (Giant Loop adapter required for exhaust side of BMW GSA). Other adapters and mounting options will be available soon. Sold as a set of two with four keys included, GL Pannier Mounts cost $299 USA MSRP (part number PNTM-18R) and $329 USA MSRP with the BMW R1200R GS Adventure adapters (part number PNMT-GSA).
Past “Nifty 50” award winners from Giant Loop include: Fandango Pro Tank Bag (2014), Tracker Packer emergency beacon holster (2015), Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder (2016) and Great Basin Saddlebag Roll Top (2017).

Giant Loop Lift Strap Makes Handy Grab Handle for Snow Bikes, Dirt Bikes
The Giant Loop Lift Strap securely attaches to the fork tubes and tail of snow bikes (Timbersled, CMX, Yeti Snow MX, MotoTrax, Camso) dirt bikes, adventure and dual-sport motorcycles – as well as snowmobiles, hard luggage cases, etc. – providing a sturdy grab handle to help tug, pull or lift the motorcycle through those tough spots on the trail when you need a little boost over an obstacle or out of mud hole. Constructed of durable nylon webbing and a comfortable molded rubber handle, the Giant Loop Lift Strap also makes an excellent carry handle for motorcycle panniers and hard luggage. The Giant Loop Lift Strap and Giant Loop Tow Strap are must-haves for your adventure touring motorcycle safety kit: Simple tools that can make big problems much easier to manage.
Giant Loop’s MoJavi Saddlebag and Klamath Tail Rack Pack combo offers the perfect, out-of-the-way storage solution for your Timbersled, MotoTrax, CMX, Camso, Yeti Snow MX or other snow bike conversion – as well as trail, dirt, enduro and dual sport motorcycles.

This set of 2 heavy-duty yet lightweight Anchor Straps is constructed with 1″ nylon webbing, military-spec side-release buckles and fasteners, securing to tunnels, decks, storage boxes, etc. with 4 stainless steel GL mounts with included stainless steel hardware (washers, nylock nuts, carriage bolts and button head bolts).
From customer Jason: “Used the Coyote Saddlebag on my KTM 500 EXC for Baja, and just like my prior version (the original bolt-on Giant Loop Saddlebag) it was really awesome, but probably more awesomer. 🙂 Kept it light and I only needed the Coyote for a 2 week trip. Inside I had tools, spares, clothes. We didn’t camp. Kept it fast and light. I used the beaver tail straps to fasten an auxiliary fuel supply – funny how station attendants don’t care if you’re pumping fuel into an unapproved 5l container. I’m not sure I’d get away with it here…” Or, check out the Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladders!
Tracker Packer review by The Gear Institute: “Giant Loop’s Tracker Packer addresses a real need for those of us who routinely escape the bonds of cell towers, extending the usability of potentially lifesaving technology even in dire situations. Best of all, the Tracker Packer keeps the satellite messenger within easy reach – and quickly accessible – should an emergency arise. After all, isn’t that when you absolutely need the messenger the most?”
Adventure proof packing and gear systems innovator Giant Loop has added a third model to its Tracker Packer™ line of ruggedized holsters for GPS-enabled emergency beacons/communicators, the new Tracker Packer for Garmin inReach beacons and two-way satellite communicators. Giant Loop’s Tracker Packer enables backcountry adventurers who travel beyond cell phone range to stay safer during all outdoor adventures — motorcycling, snowmobiling, snow biking, backpacking, climbing, mountain biking, boating — with help the push of a button away. Following best safety practices, the Tracker Packer firmly attaches the Garmin inReach Explorer or SE device to the user’s backpack shoulder strap, outerwear, or upper arm, reducing the risk of the device separating from the user or not being within reach and in plain sight. Although wearing the Tracker Packer is the best safety practice, it can also be used to attach the device to a vehicle or other location.
Featuring redundant closures, multiple connections, and tether points, the Tracker Packer is designed to remain secure, even in the roughest, most extreme conditions. By keeping the device in a visible, easy-to-access location, anyone on scene in the event of an emergency can quickly deploy the Garmin inReach’s SOS signal sending the GPS location to an international emergency response coordination center.
The Tracker Packer for Garmin inReach is not just for emergencies. When traveling beyond cell service, backcountry travelers can let family and friends know they are OK, and satellite text messages can be sent and received directly from the device.
Giant Loop donates a portion of all Tracker Packer sales to the nonprofit Kurt Caselli Foundation, which focuses on the safety of riders and racers in the off-road motorcycling industry. Giant Loop worked with US off-road motorcycle racing legend Quinn Cody to test and develop the Tracker Packer holsters. Other Tracker Packer models include the Tracker Packer for DeLorme inReach and the Tracker Packer for SPOT Gen3.
Tracker Packer features include a high-visibility closure printed with “EMERGENCY” and the Kurt Caselli Foundation’s “Caselli 66” logo, a redundant double hook-and-loop Garmin inReach attachment system, a heavy duty hook-and-loop extension band for wearing on the upper arm, Slip-Not grippy backing, foam padding to absorb shock and vibration, reflective trim for visibility, fully bound seams and webbing loops with grommets for additional mounting and tethering options.
Made in USA with military-specification components and materials, the Tracker Packer for Garmin inReach is backed by Giant Loop’s limited lifetime warranty. USA MSRP is $50. The Tracker Packer is available bundled with the Garmin inReach Explorer or SE exclusively at Giant Loop’s GL Adventure Shop warehouse showroom in Bend, Oregon, and at www.giantloopmoto.com.
