I have had a number of PM`s asking about a copy of the Giant Loop bags.

While I think their and Moskp Moto`s designs are great I am reluctant to just do copies....in any event Mosko Moto is a very hard act to follow.

Having said that , we are working on something and as soon as it is available I will be posting pics here.

If you do a GL or MM type bag in PVC you even got my attention here!

The more I look at the Mosko moto the more I like the idea.

You can leave the shell tied to the bike and just remove the bag you need.


Where does the dust and water go once past the "bags" ?

Out, there is a hole at the bottom. The inner bags are water/dustproof. No different from let's say ATG waterproof saddlebags, but much more flexible and doesn't require racks

3 MONTHS SINCE THE FIRST POST ON THIS THREAD.

To be honest, I`m very pleased with our progress: over 100 bags of various desigs sold and over 5000 views of this thread (ok...1000 was me checking..)

We have evolved and are making good functional products and selling them at prices nobody can bitch about.

New products are being developed, but we will not be rushed into marketing any product / design until we are totally happy with what we are selling.

A big "THANK YOU" to those who have supported us to date.

Check out the Vendor Specials for a few specials to celebrete this milestone.

I have had a number of PM`s and watsap messages asking why I have been so quiet on this thread. Truth is I don`t want to bore everyone with trivia and will also post new products as they are developed, but this takes time.
The other pleasant reality is that we are busy and needing to increase our production capacity to meed the increasing demand, so I`m not punting NOMAD products as hard here as I was before.

Then of course I need to do product testing and R & D which is most pleasant.

Here is another possible product:

Would have loved something similar for winter commuting. Maybe not as big but something which fit over the hand guards and extend a bit up and down just to keep the direct cold airflow off my hands hands and fingers.

As a Universal mitten designed to fit over different size handle bars and covers, it works just well. Any smaller and it will loose its effectiveness.

Brilliant product.

Pete, as I said earlier regarding the GL bag. The design should be the same snug fit, except to make it a 37L roll  top.

Ha.....Gerrard,
As we speak the first prototype is back for some modifications but the response from the locals here at the epicentre of the universe is VERY positive.

Needs a bit of tweaking and changes in the contact surfaces but looking very promising......pics will follow shortly.

Very interested to see how you did it, and to see if you can modify mine to a roll top.

OK...the first fitting of a "u" type bag.

Will also be doing a bigger volume model but there seems to be more interest in the smaller, more compact type that can have a tailpack or barrelbag as an optional fitting at the same time so that is our focus for now.

The bigger volume bag in the "U" shape WILL be forthcoming....let`s just get this one right first !!

I am personally amped to test this model as it appeals to my type of riding with the weight in front of the rear axle , low down and snug against the bike.

The pic in the post earlier today was just a prototype, but we should have finalized all issues...including pricing and have them ready for the market by the end of next week.

Please don`t watsap or P.M. me with requests about price...I don`t know yet!

THERE MIGHT BE SOME GOOD DEALS ON OPENING SPECIALS.....WATCH THIS SPACE.
