MILAN, Italy - Bend, Ore.-based soft luggage manufacturer Giant Loop debuted its 2014 line as well as a few late additions for 2013 during this week's EICMA exposition in Europe. The collection includes some new soft luggage options as well as major updates for existing pieces.
Possibles Pouch: The two-liter storage system adds capacity to Giant Loop saddlebags and panniers. The vinyl-coated polyester pouch has a storm flap, multiple webbing lash points and reflective tabs for visibility.
Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag: The redesigned Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag fits most motorcycles and is designed with three components—harness, two-liter center case and two-liter pannier pockets—which can be used individually or in any combination. The pannier pockets are also compatible with the Fandango and Diablo tank bags.
Fandango Tank Bag Pro: Although the Fandango is not new, Giant Loop’s largest tank bag (eight liters) has undergone major updates that focus on expandability and electronics compatibility. An electronics pass-through enables on-bike charging and power inside the tank bag. There is a concealed document pocket, a vinyl map pocket, a mesh exterior pocket and a divided interior pocket. The updated Fandango allows for easier fueling, since riders need to only unzip one side of the bag from the harness.
Diablo Tank Bag Pro: The four-liter Diablo is also updated with the same features as the Fandango. The Diablo, however, is a smaller, narrower option than its larger counterpart. Like the Fandango, the Diablo fits most motorcycles, including dirt, dual sport, adventure and sportbike models.
Giant Loop added several late-season options to its 2013 line, including the double-ended waterproof roll top Tillamook Dry Bag (38 liters) and Rogue Dry Bag (17 liters). Pronghorn Straps come in three color-coded lengths and are used to secure gear. The Rubber Boa Straps secure Giant Loop gear to a dirt bike’s plastic fenders.
