Video: Giant Loop’s Tracker Packer Ruggedized Holsters for SPOT Gen3, Garmin inReach, DeLorme inReach

By | Adventure Touring, bike packing, Camping, FAQ, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, holiday gifts for motorcyclists, New Product, Tech Tips, Timbersled, Video

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.

UPDATED FOR 2017! The NEW roll top Possibles Pouch™ is now RF-welded, 100% waterproof, dustproof, mudproof, snowproof and a roomy 3-liters in volume — enough capacity for a full set of tire irons, a spare tube, 2-liter fuel canister or anything else riders need to secure any vehicle for adventure – motorcycle, snowmobile, snow bike (Timbersled, MotoTrax, etc.), ATV, UTV, 4×4, boat or SUP.

Giant Loop Rider: World Traveler Steph Jeavons on Honda CRF250L with Great Basin Saddlebag, Fandango Pro Tank Bag and Adventure Proof Motorcycle Soft Luggage

Giant Loop Rider: World Traveler Steph Jeavons on Honda CRF250L with Great Basin Saddlebag, Fandango Pro Tank Bag and Adventure Proof Motorcycle Soft Luggage

Message from Steph Jeavons: “Still loving the Giant Loop luggage😀”

Steph Jeavons has taken her Honda CRF250L further than any 250cc has been before, so far having ridden to 40 countries and covered over 55,000 miles! In March, we hosted her slide show presentation and her bike Rhonda here in Bend, Oregon. While she was here, Giant Loop had the opportunity to lighten her motorcycle and upgrade Rhonda the Honda CRF250L with our waterproof, adventure proof motorcycle soft luggage packing system: Great Basin Saddlebag, Tillamook Dry Bag, Fandango Pro Tank Bag, Possibles Pouches, Pannier Pockets and Pronghorn Straps. Go light! Go fast! Go Far!

Steph Jeavons on Honda CRF250L with Great Basin Saddlebag, Fandango Pro Tank Bag, Pannier Pockets, Tillamook Dry Bag

From her website and blog:
Steph Jeavons set off from the Ace Cafe in 2014 to circumnavigate the world. She is still going, and apparently, happily lost!

Steph has been around motorbikes most of her life with both parents and one of her two sisters riding as well. Her grandmother even rode bikes during the war! Steph herself has been riding since the age of 21. I think you can safely say it’s in the blood. In 2008 she set up her own off-road motorcycle school in the UK as well as desert tours in Morocco alongside the British Dakar rider Mick Extance.

Steph has ridden across the Atlas mountains and in the Sahara five times. She has crossed the US coast-to-coast four times, got muddy in Wales with names like John McGuinness and, just once, nearly punched Carl Fogarty in the face! Steph also worked with Nick Sanders setting up his expedition centre in Machynlleth.

She left all this excitement behind to pursue her dream of riding her motorcycle to all seven continents – solo!

‘I’m certainly no expert and I don’t confess to being a demon on two wheels. This adventure isn’t about speed. It’s not really even about the bike. It’s about living, learning and enjoying! Doing this trip solo on a bike just opens up all the senses and allows me to be part of my environment.’

Steph has taken her Honda CRF250L further than any 250cc has been before, so far having ridden to 40 countries and covered over 55,000 miles! Steph has survived extreme heat, freezing conditions, landslides and wind that blew her off her bike in Patagonia. She has camped, couch-surfed and stayed with fellow bikers along the way whilst avoiding the main roads and sticking to the dirt where possible. She touched down and rode her motorbike on Antarctica in February 2015 after successfully crossing the notoriously rough Drake Passage in a small sailing yacht.

Steph has given inspirational talks to motorcycle shows, groups and communities along the way. She also currently writes for Ride Magazine and ADV Moto as she continues her journey around the world on her little dirt bike named Rhonda.

SnoWest Features Cordura Ballistic Tow Strap in September Issue

 

Screen Shot 2016-08-12 at 3.32.50 PM

Thanks SnoWest Magazine for featuring the new Giant Loop Cordura Ballistic Tow Strap in their September issue.

“The Giant Loop tow strap is designed with loops on each end sewn with military-spec thread and can be hitched around a tree, bumper, etc. It can also be used for foot peg to foot peg or other motorcycle, snowmobile, ATV and snow bike towing techniques.”

Another use for this versatile strap is a ridge line for a Shelter Tarp, as included in the Giant Loop Shelter System.

Many of our Giant Loop products can easily make the jump from summer motor sports to winter. The Ballistic Tow Strap is rugged enough to tow snowmobiles out of even the deepest snow.

Also check out Giant Loop’s selection of heavy duty dry bags, and our Giant Loop Snow line for more gear to stock up on for winter.

Go light. Go fast. Go far.

Sold as a set of three, Saddlebag Dry Pods also add waterproof organization and storage to any panniers, saddlebags, duffels, dry bags or backpacks. Saddlebag Dry Pods are constructed of high visibility yellow TPU with RF welded seams and roll-top closures, and they feature air purge valves to help compress gear for easy sealing and packing.

TIPS: Fill Giant Loop’s Saddlebag Dry Pods with ice and a favorite beverage at the end of a day’s adventure. Saddlebag Dry Pods also can be used on their own for boating, a day at the beach or anywhere high-quality waterproof dry storage is needed.

Each Saddlebag Dry Pods set includes two side Pods shaped to fit the lower “legs” of the Great Basin Saddlebag and Coyote Saddlebag and one double-ended center Pod. Like all Giant Loop products, Saddlebag Dry Pods are backed by a limited lifetime warranty against defects for the original purchaser. USA MSRP is $75 (part number SDP16).

Rider Magazine 2015 Motorcycle Holiday Gift Guide: Giant Loop Kiger Tank Bag + Pronghorn Straps

By | holiday gifts for motorcyclists, News, Reviews, Saddlebags, stocking stuffers, Tank Bags

Thanks Rider Magazine for including Giant Loop’s Kiger Tank Bag and Pronghorn Straps in the December issue’s Holiday Gift Guide. We especially appreciate that they were chosen based on Rider editor’s experiences using our gear!:

“Giant Loop, started in 2008 and based in Bend, Oregon, designs and manufactures soft luggage and accessories for dual-sport/adventure riding. Some of GL’s tough, versatile luggage we’ve tested over the years, like its Fandango Tank Bag and horseshoe-shaped Great Basin Saddlebag, remains go-to gear when we head into the backcountry. But you don’t need a bike with knobbies to take advantage of GL’s no-nonsense designs and rugged, mil-spec construction. We used the 9-liter Kiger Tank Bag ($290) on a weeklong, rain-soaked tour of Italy and then strapped it on our Yamaha FJ-09 long-term test bike. We like its zipperless clamshell opening, touchscreen-friendly map pocket and removable waterproof Dry Pod bag. And GL’s Pronghorn Straps, made of super-tough stretch polyurethane with unbreakable fasteners (available in 16-, 20- and 26-inch lengths, two per package, $16-20), are some of the strongest, most versatile straps we’ve used for securing cargo to a bike.”

Apologies. Our manufacturing partner temporarily has put production of our fuel bladders on hold. We’re hopeful that we will have a revised design from them in the coming weeks, and that we will have production units ready to ship early in 2016. Thanks for your patience – innovation presents unique challenges.
