Tillamook Dry Bag and Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder Featured in Dirt Rider Magazine

Tillamook Dry Bag and Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder Featured in Dirt Rider Magazine

Dirt Rider Magazine (Gas Bag and Tilamook Bag)
Thanks to Dirt Rider Magazine‘s Seiji Ishii for the kind words regarding our 38-liter, waterproof Tillamook Dry Bag. His review published in Dirt Rider Magazine’s August 2016 issue confirms the strength, versatility and reliability of one of one of our most popular double-ended waterproof bags. Ishii points out that the Tillamook Dry Bag can be used in more situations than just the back of a motorcycle, including canoeing, kayaking, and rafting adventures (as well as snow mobiles, snow bikes, ATVs, UTVs and 4x4s!). The rolling closures at either end and the radio-frequency welded seams prevent water from entering and damaging contents – and our double-ended design provides easy access to gear from both ends without unstrapping the Dry Bag. “Think of it as a tube with a waterproof roll-top closure at both ends. This allows access to the contents from either side of the bag, on or off the bike. It also allows extreme adjustability to the volume of the bag.” Ishii used the Giant Loop Tillamook Dry Bag during a weeklong adventure motorcycle rally, the KTM Adventure Rider Rally in Crested Butte, Colorado. “The week of riding included trails that were so rough that metal chassis components were breaking on bikes, but the Giant Loop bag remained unscathed. The closures never hinted at opening and all seams and webbing remained unharmed. Rain, creek crossing, and puddles were plentiful, but there was zero water entry.”

Giant Loop offers this innovative double-ended waterproof dry bag design in three sizes: Rogue Dry Bag (17 liters), Tillamook Dry Bag (38 liters) and Columbia Dry Bag (70 liters). The Rogue Dry Bag and Tillamook Dry Bag are designed to integrate with the compression straps on Giant Loop’s Coyote Saddlebag and Great Basin Saddlebag – or they can be used independently by strapping them to a tail rack or Giant Loop’s Siskiyou Panniers. The Columbia Dry Bag features its own integrated anchor strap system (included with the Dry Bag, in addition to a convenient shoulder straps for off-bike carrying), an external wet/dry pocket and two carry handles. Because it meets airlines carry-on luggage size requirements, it also makes a super rugged, waterproof, versatile adventure travel bag. The Columbia integrates with Giant Loop’s Siskiyou Panniers and also makes a great companion for Giant Loop’s new rack-mounted Round The World Panniers.

In the same issue, Dirt Rider also featured Giant Loop’s Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder in its “Gear Bag” section. “Fuel your off-road passion with, what else, extra fuel. This bag-o-gas gives you one extra gallon,” Dirt Rider wrote. The Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder allows convenient fuel transport for motorcycles, snow bikes, snowmobiles, ATVs, UTVs and 4x4s, by carrying a gallon of gas in a flexible package. The multi-layer bag is a “go light, go fast, go far” solution for carrying extra fuel on any occasion and rolls up when empty for easy storage.

Adventure proof packing systems and gear company Giant Loop has introduced a new multi-functional, high strength webbing strap with an integrated cover for power sports, the Giant Loop Cordura® Ballistic Tow Strap. This tool that can help get motorcycles, snowmobiles, snow bikes and ATVs out of a sticky situation, and with a couple of Giant Loop’s Pronghorn Straps, the Giant Loop Cordura Ballistic Tow Strap doubles as a quick deploying, super strong ridge line for pitching the new GL Shelter Tarp 100.

giant loop tow strap plus pronghorn straps equals shelter tarp ridge line

Designed with loops on each end sewn with military-spec thread, the Giant Loop Cordura Ballistic Tow Strap can be girth hitched around a tree, bumper, etc., and it can also be used for footpeg-to-footpeg or other motorcycle, snowmobile, ATV and snow bike towing techniques.

The Giant Loop Cordura Ballistic Tow Strap is constructed in the USA from Giant Loop’s ultra-durable custom woven Cordura Ballistic webbing, which the company uses as the anchor straps on its line of adventure proof motorcycle saddlebags and panniers because it is extremely strong, highly abrasion resistant and does not stretch when it gets wet. The 1-in. wide webbing folds up into a compact package using the integrated cover made of the same “truckers tarp” (22 oz. vinyl coated polyester) the company uses to construct its dual sport and adventure touring motorcycle soft luggage.

The Giant Loop Cordura Ballistic Tow Strap measures 177-in. long (14-ft. 9-in.), with 6-in. loops sewn into each end. Packed dimensions are 10-in. by 2-in. by 2-in. It weighs just 5.4 oz. Backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty against defects, the Giant Loop Cordura Ballistic Tow Strap is available in random assorted colors (black webbing with black, gray, white, yellow or orange cover). USA MSRP is $29.

New Giant Loop Camping System: Ultralight, Compact, Multifunctional Technical Camping Equipment for Motorcycle Adventure

WEBPAGE:
Giant Loop GL Camping System

Giant Loop Introduces the GL Camping System of Ultralight, Compact, Multifunctional Camping Equipment for Motorcycle Adventure

(BEND, OR) Adventure proof packing systems and gear company Giant Loop has introduced the GL Camping System, a collection of ultralight, compact, multi-functional, high performance, high value camping gear to help motorcycle travelers reduce the weight and bulk of their camping equipment. In keeping with the company’s “go light, go fast, go far” approach to dual sport and adventure touring motorcycling, Giant Loop drew upon its staff members’ passion for outdoor pursuits such as backpacking, rafting, mountaineering and backcountry skiing to assemble the GL Shelter System, GL Cooking System and other essentials.

GL Shelter System consists of the following:

Shelter Tarp 100, a 10’ x 10’ tarp that packs into its own integrated stuff sack, measuring 10” x 5” and weighing 20 oz. Made in USA, the Shelter Tarp 100 can be quickly deployed to create an alternative to a tent or to supplement a tent with covered space that can be configured in a multitude of ways, such as standing height protection from pouring rain or scorching sun while repairing a flat tire. It can also be pitched over a picnic table or used to create a group camping shelter. MSRP is $106.

Sleeping Sheath (aka bivy or sleeping bag cover) provides ultralight weather, dew and dirt protection to your sleeping bag, as well as boosting its warmth. Weighing just 9 oz. with a packed size of 8″ x 4″, the Sleeping Sheath features a zero seam tub floor, which means no seam sealing and no moisture entry from the floor. The top fabric is highly water repellent yet breathable, with an articulated hood that zips from hip-to-hip on either side, with a full no-see-um bug net hood. Draw cord stuff sack included. Made in USA. MSRP is $149.

Tyvek® Ground Sheet is waterproof and extremely durable, creating a minimalist “floor” for our GL Shelter System, protecting the Giant Loop Sleeping Sheath from dirt, sticks and rocks. With proper care, one Tyvek ground cloth will last for a multi-month and multi-thousand mile adventure. Pre-wash your Tyvek in a washing machine to soften and reduce rustling sounds while sleeping. MSRP is $12.

Aluminum Tarp Pole provides super strong aluminum support for the Shelter Tarp 100. The 45″ ultralight aluminum pole weighs just 3 oz. and folds into a 15″-long package. We recommend purchasing two poles to maximize shelter pitching options and configurations. MSRP is $14 each.

Aluminum Stake Set includes eight stakes, six 6″ and two 8″ stakes, weighing in at a featherweight 2.5 oz. Use shorter 6″ stakes around the perimeter of the Giant Loop Shelter Tarp 100 and the two longer 8″ Easton aluminum stakes should be used on the two main guy lines, providing additional anchoring power to secure Shelter Tarp. MSRP is $15.99.

Nite Ize Reflective Rope Pack comes in 50′ length, and is perfect for guy lines, hanging bear bags — and then being able to see where it is when you’re done. Made of sturdy nylon with a special reflective strip woven into it that reflects brightly when light shines onto it, increasing night time safety. Also handy for zipper pulls and pull loops for the Aluminum Stake Set. MSRP is $11.99.

GL Cooking System consists of the following:

Vargo Titanium Converter Stove weighs just 1.6 oz. and features a folding stand that allows for compact packing and use as a standalone camping stove. Or, convert the titanium Vargo Hexagon Wood Stove into a complete multi-fuel stove by combining it with the Vargo Converter Stove. Its easy “drop-in” design turns the Hexagon into an effective windscreen while providing the ideal distance between stove and cookware for optimal cooking efficiency. Unlike other stoves, the Converter Stove will cook faster and won’t leave soot on the bottom of your pots. Burns alcohol, fuel tabs or fuel gels. Simply flip the stove over to switch between alcohol and fuel tab/gel burning modes. Alcohol fuel capacity is 2 oz., which provides burn time for approximately one meal. De-natured alcohol is inexpensive and easy to source at hardware stores or automotive stores (gas drying product). MSRP is $39.95.

Vargo Titanium Hexagon Wood Stove uses easy-to-find, sticks and bits of wood — renewable fuel that can be found at campsites instead of carried on a motorcycle. Combined with the titanium Vargo Converter Stove, the Hexagon provides a windscreen and super stable cooking platform for a complete multi-fuel cooking system. This ultralight titanium camping stove weighs just 4.1 oz. and packs flat. MSRP is $59.95.

Vargo Titanium Flint Lighter makes an excellent companion for igniting the alcohol to start the Vargo Titanium Converter Stove, plus it delivers a dependable spark in the most adverse conditions – even after getting doused with water – making it the perfect choice for other fire lighting needs. Weighs 0.3 oz. MSRP is $19.95.

Alcohol Fuel Bottle transports enough clean burning denatured alcohol to cook several meals. Flip top for quick, easy stove filling. Leak proof to prevent spills. Ounce gradations on bottle for accurate fueling of titanium Vargo Converter Stove for camping. Weighs 1 oz. MSRP is $2.50.

Vargo Titanium Ti-Boiler Cooking Pot + Pan triples cooking capability and efficiency. The Ti-lite 900 ml titanium Mug pairs with a titanium 400 ml lid-pan to create a double boiler system that allows two items to be cooked at once to save time and fuel. The lid-pan is uniquely designed to nest on top of the mug to utilize the captured heat from the mug to cook food slowly preventing burning. Weighs just 6.6 oz. MSRP is $69.95.

Vargo Titanium Knife, Fork & Spoon ULV features a small, narrow design to make them lighter and more compact than standard camp cutlery. The matte finish pure titanium is biocompatible and will never corrode. Each piece weighs less than 0.5 ounces (14 grams). Mini carabiner included. MSRP is $24.95.

Vargo Titanium Funnel Flask features a patented integrated silicone funnel that is always right where you need it. Simply flip it up for easy filling, then fold it down to sip comfortably. The Vargo Titanium Funnel Flask holds 8 oz. of your favorite drink while imparting no taste, odor, or chemicals meaning you and your single malt stay pure. The funnel also functions as a perfect spout to pour your alcohol back into its original container. Weighs just 3.7 oz.  MSRP is $74.95 (custom engraving is available for an additional $25).

FeatherLite™ First Aid Kit 2.0 contains an assortment of first aid supplies needed to treat a variety of minor injuries. The outer case is constructed of durable, lightweight nylon cloth that is bright red to make it easy to locate. A detailed First Aid Kit Owner’s Guide is also included with basic first aid instructions. Measures 8.25″ x 4.75″ x 2″ and weighs 8 oz. MSRP is $17.99.

Contents are stored inside a lightweight, compact orange pouch for convenient storage, measuring 7” x 6.5” x 1.5” and weighing 8 oz. MSRP is $15.99.

Thank you Team Giant Loop and Powersports Business for the 2016  Nifty 50 best new powersports  products award for the Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder. And congratulations to our manufacturing collaborator Fuel Safe – without their assistance and expertise this product never would have made it off the drawing board! The Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder is proudly made in USA and backed by our limited lifetime warranty.

Bend, OR-based, adventure proof packing systems and gear company Giant Loop’s new  Gas Bag™ Fuel Safe Bladder conveniently transports 1 gallon of hydrocarbon fuel for power sports racing in a collapsible welded film and ballistic nylon reinforced container that rolls up or packs flat when empty, weighing less than 12 ounces. Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladders are compatible with motorcycles, snowmobiles, snow bikes (e.g., Timbersled, Moto Trax), ATVs, UTVs and 4x4s, providing a lightweight, compact means of transporting gas for off-road racing on closed courses.

The Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder was recently awarded the Powersports Business “Nifty 50” for being among the best new products for 2016: http://powersportsbusiness.com/columns/2016/02/15/2016-powersports-business-nifty-50-winners/
