Great email from customer Marck B. from Washington:
“You may remember me: I was in your shop a month ago for the Coyote Saddlebag. I ended up taking the Coyote bag in a 10-day trip around Morocco.
It’s the best bag ever, attached to a Yamaha 660 it withstood sand storms in Sahara, as well as heat and rain. Mounting takes just minutes and it holds everything I needed to travel for 10 days.
Couple of photos attached. Notice the camels behind the bike and the sand storm.”
Review of 2019 BMW F850GS Rallye by Motorcycle Adventure Dirtbike TV: “A reluctant review of the 2019 BMW GS 850 Rallye conducted over a 2,200 kilometre five day adventure in the Australian outback.”
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.

We tell our dealers all the time that the single most effective sales tool is to set up a bike with Giant Loop gear, stuffed full to show the shape and volume. It’s a simple thing to do, and all of our top selling dealers do it. So, it’s gratifying to get this kind of feedback from Jackson, a manger at our Australian importer, Adventure Moto:
We finally got a bike setup in our Brisbane store with some of Giant Loop’s products on board. Coyote Saddlebag, Tillamook Dry Bag, Diablo Pro Tank Bag and Fender/Number Plate Bag. We’ve had it setup for two days, and we have sold a Coyote, Diablo and Tillamook from it.
Having products displayed on the bike has helped greatly. I’m fitting the new Tail Rack on the bike this weekend.
Keep up the good work mate. Lovin’ your products.
Brisbane Warehouse Manager, Adventure Moto Australia

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.

The new tracker packer keeps the satellite messenger within easy reach and quickly accessible should an emergency arise. Grab one before your next adventure!

After years of testing and development, Giant Loop’s new Tail Rack delivers a rugged, lightweight, low-profile, universal-fitting solution for anchoring saddlebags, tool packs and gear to any motorcycle’s rear plastic fender. Crafted from black anodized aluminum, the Tail Rack features unique stainless steel wire gate carabiner-style clips for quick strap attachment. Stainless steel hardware makes installation quick and easy. Included aluminum spacers slightly raise the Tail Rack, so Giant Loop’s stretch polyurethane Pronghorn Straps and webbing straps can slide beneath for solid mounting of GL’s Coyote Saddlebag, MoJavi Saddlebag, Klamath Tail Rack Pack, Possibles Pouch and other relatively light, compact items.
Weighing just 9.4 ounces (including hardware and spacers), the GL Tail Rack measures 5-inches wide by 8-inches long x 5/8-inch tall. Four wire-gate closures prevent webbing from disconnecting even when riding in the roughest terrain. The Tail Rack can be mounted in two different positions on virtually any dirt bike, dual sport or enduro rear plastic fender. All hardware required for installation is included (4x stainless steel button head bolts, 4x stainless steel nylock nuts, 4x stainless steel washers and 4x aluminum spacers). Total load restricted to 10 lbs. maximum, as the Tail Rack is designed to provide secure anchor points for Giant Loop Saddlebags and gear, NOT to support heavy loads.
USA MSRP for Giant Loop’s universal Tail Rack solution is $49.
The sun has set on another great turnout for the Giant Loop Ride out at Crystal Crane Hot Springs. Thank you to everyone who made the journey out and we hope everyone had a great time, see you next year!
