LONG BEACH, Calif. - Vertically Driven Products has developed a nifty Barrel Bag Organizer that is designed for motorcyclists but which can fit just about any vehicle with a tube or bar.
The organizer (No. 3525) was introduced to dealers this month at the Parts Unlimited and Drag Specialties regional showcase in Valley Forge, Pa., where we spoke with company President Jeff Jacobson along with Keith Johnson, VDP's regional territory manager.
The Barrel Bag an affordable, compact, all-purpose organizer specifically suited for motorcycles, UTVs and 4x4s but which can be clipped anywhere you have a tube, handle or roll bar. It slides nicely into a saddlebag, too.
The black ballistic nylon organizer was designed with four silver-lined interior pockets so you can easily see all your stuff without a lot of rummaging, Jacobson said. The pockets are insulated to keep items like smartphones cool when it's warm out, and vice versa. Nylon straps and buckles let users attach and release the bag quickly. The exterior of the bag features a study double zipper and three mesh pockets.
The Barrel Bag has an affordable suggested retail of $29.99, making it an ideal "on the go" counter purchase or gift item (buy one for the bike, one for the truck, etc.). Its sturdy construction can accommodate everything from personal items to small tools.
Dealer margin exceeds 40 percent. The company recommends retailers order the Master Box countertop red-and black POP unit which contains 10 organizers.
