Running Over Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder With Truck

By | 4x4, Adventure Touring, ATV, FAQ, Fuel, Giant Loop Gear, Overland, Racer, Side By Side, Snow, Snow Bike, Snowmobile, SxS, Tech Tips, travel, UTV, Video

Today, we answer the question: Can you run over the Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder with a truck without causing leaks or damage?

Can you do this with your plastic gas can? People ask if Giant Loop’s Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder is tough, so we put the 5-gallon Gas Bag to the test by running over it repeatedly with a Nissan Titan half ton pick-up truck. Not only did it not pop or leak, it barely left a mark, even when the truck tire pushes it and makes it roll on the asphalt parking lot.

NEW Tracker Packer™ Ruggedized Holsters Secure Garmin inReach Mini and SPOT Gen3 Emergency Beacon to User for Maximum Backcountry Safety

Adventure gear innovator Giant Loop just released a major update of its Tracker Packer™ line of ruggedized holsters for GPS-enabled emergency beacons/communicators. Two new models, compatible with SPOT Gen3 and with Garmin inReach Mini, feature redundant anchor straps, quick-adjusting accessory arm bands, unobstructed view of and access to all controls and an included redundant tether adding yet another layer of security.

Tracker Packers enable backcountry adventurers who travel beyond cell phone range to stay safer during all of their outdoor adventures — motorcycling, snowmobiling, snow biking, backpacking, climbing, mountain biking, boating, skiing/snowboarding — with help the push of a button away. Following best safety practices, the Tracker Packer firmly attaches the emergency device to the user’s backpack shoulder strap, upper arm or lower leg, reducing the risk of the device separating from the user or not being within reach and in plain sight when need arises.

The Gear Institute recently wrote in a test review that “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?”

Featuring redundant closures, multiple connections, and tether points, the compact and lightweight 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 device’s SOS signal sending the GPS location to an international emergency response coordination center.

Tracker Packers for Garmin inReach Mini and SPOT Gen3 are not just for emergencies. When traveling beyond cell service, backcountry travelers can communicate via satellite text messages, sent and received directly from the Garmin inReach Mini. OK and other pre-programmed messaged can be sent from the SPOT Gen3.

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.

Tracker Packer features include a high-visibility tag imprinted with “SOS,” elastic antennae anchor (Garmin only), screen prints of the Kurt Caselli Foundation’s “Caselli 66” logo and Giant Loop’s GL logo, a redundant double hook-and-loop attachment system, a heavy duty hook-and-loop extension band for wearing on the upper arm or lower leg above the boot, grippy backing, foam padding to absorb shock and vibration and a redundant tether cord for additional security.

Constructed with military-specification components and materials, the Tracker Packer for Garmin inReach Mini and Tracker Packer for SPOT Gen3 are backed by Giant Loop’s limited lifetime warranty. USA MSRP is $39. The Tracker Packer is available bundled with the Garmin inReach Mini or SPOT Gen3 exclusively at Giant Loop’s GL Adventure Shop warehouse showroom in Bend, Oregon, and at www.giantloopmoto.com. For more information and to contribute to the Kurt Caselli Foundation, visit www.kurtcaselli.com.

5 gallon Fuel Safe Gas Bags with a Polaris side by side

Giant Loop has added new 3- and 5-gallon Gas Bag™ Fuel Safe Bladders to its award-wining fuel solutions. Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladders conveniently transport 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 a fraction of rigid tanks and canisters and less costly than racing fuel cells, Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladders are also available in 1- and 2-gallon models.

The new larger 3-gallon (11.4 liters) and 5-gallon (18.9 liters) Gas Bags are designed specifically for UTVs, ATVs, snowmobiles, snow bikes (e.g., Timbersled, Camso), 4x4s and overland vehicles, providing a lightweight, compact means of transporting gas for off-road racing on closed courses, as well as for international travel.

In 2016, Giant Loop’s original 1-gallon Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder won a Powersports Business “Nifty 50” award for top new products.

Each Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder is individually pressure tested and made in USA by Fuel Safe®, a leading racing fuel containment manufacturer based in Redmond, Oregon.

NOTE: Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladders are intended only for the temporary transport of liquid hydrocarbons for racing vehicles used in professional off road and closed course competition racing events. The Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder is NOT a portable or long-term fuel storage container as described by ASTM, EPA, ARB or other state or federal agencies.

Flat and unfilled, the 3-Gallon Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder measures 22″ long by 14″ wide. Three heavy-duty webbing and molded rubber handles provide tie-downs and facilitate fuel handling. The 5-gallon Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder measures 29” long by 14” wide, with four heavy-duty handles.

All models of Gas Bags feature two rows of webbing daisy chain loops that prevent the Gas Bag from sliding out from under tie-down straps (not included). Filler necks are standard size, fitting “universal” spouts, such as the EZ-Pour (also available from Giant Loop). Available exclusively from Giant Loop and authorized dealers, USA MSRP is $239.99 for the 3-gallon Gas Bag (GL part FSB18-G3) and $299.99 for the 5-gallon Gas Bag (GL part FSB18-G5).

Fall Riding in Austria with the Mojavi Saddlebags

By | Blog, Giant Loop Gear, KTM, Photos, Saddlebags, Snow

At Giant Loop we pride ourselves in knowing that our gear is getting put through the paces daily–in all sorts of weather conditions, around the world. Wolfgang, a Giant Loop rider from Austria sent us these great shots of his ride in Italy with friends on their KTMs. Their bikes were outfittted for light, fast day tripping and the Mojavi Saddlebags suited their needs perfectly.

Looks as though Europe is getting an early winter as well!

First of all thank you for your cooperation. We were very happy about it!
–how important the Giant Loops are for us. This was now two weeks ago, where we climbed in the Italian region Piemont, using partially old military-roads and also “no ways”, up to a height over 3.200 meters!

Harold, whether it is sunshine, rain or snow, you “never walk alone” with the GLs.In the indoor area always dry as well as at minus degrees, the zipper can open loosely! In this sense a beautiful working week, warm greetings from the foggy Austria!

–Wolfgang

Thanks for riding with Giant Loop Wolfgang! Go light. Go fast. Go Far!

How to Use Giant Loop’s Stainless Steel Mounts and Metal Tri-Glide Buckles

By | Blog, Dry Bags, FAQ, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, New Product, Snow, Tech Tips, under $60, Video

How to Use Giant Loop’s Stainless Steel Mounts and Metal Tri-Glide Buckles

Here’s a simple trick to make it virtually impossible for webbing anchor straps to slip out of stainless steel Giant Loop Mounts, even if you forget to tighten straps (we know, “it” happens). By threading a metal tri-glide buckle onto the webbing anchor straps on Giant Loop’s Revelstoke Tunnel Bag, Torngat Tunnel Bag or Giant Loop’s adventure proof motorcycle gear, such as Saddlebags and Panniers, you can create a dead solid, secure anchor point that also functions as a “quick release.” Thank you for choosing Giant Loop for all of your adventures! #golightgofastgofar

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.

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.

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.

FeatherLite™ Survival Kit 1.0 contains an assortment of essential supplies for emergencies, including button compass, emergency blanket, emergency poncho , JetScream™ Micro Whistle, 4″ See-Me™ Light Stick, StarFlash® Micro Mirror, survival toweland waterproof matches. 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.

Rounding out the GL Camping System are the collapsible ultralight Joey Chair (MSRP $79.99), the Orion Tilt Hat Clip LED light (MSRP $24.99)secures to helmet visor or hat, the Princeton Tec BYTE LED Headlamp (MSRP $22.99) offers ultracompact lighting, Tenacious Tape™ Repair Patches (MSRP $2.95) to make durable field repairs on fabric and the Zipper Care zipper cleaner and lubricant (MSRP $4.95) keeps zippers sliding smoothly.

The Giant Loop Camping System is available exclusively from Giant Loop’s Bend showroom and online at www.giantloopmoto.com.
