Default Holdall Bag for Bike

Looking for a cheap waterproof bag to take a shirt and trousers into work and gym gear to the gym. Anyone tried this givi one or got a better option. Would prefer something i can strap to rack than a shoulder bag.

Kreiga make some pretty good ones which you can strap to the rack or I believe they also provide clips which you can leave semi-permanently secured under your pillion seat to receive the bag when you need to put it on the bike. I think there's a 10, 15 and 20 litre version of their roll top bags. They are a bit more pricey than other brands but they are made just for bikes and you can build up a whole pannier set in modules. Check out kreiga.com for ideas

I use the one of these for travelling - very similar to the givi.

http://www.motorcycleshop.ie/drybag-...01-61291-p.asp

They're fine - easier to get stuff in and out of because they have a top opening where as the kreiga is essentially a seal bag with the opening a the end which can be a pain.

The kreiga is a more rugged bag and will take a lot more abuse but I prefer the hold all style - they come with straps etc

Held do a version which is a little cheaper

Ive had two of these bags and cant fault them:

http://www.lomo.co.uk/acatalog/Dry-B...s-uk.html#a770

I bought the high visibility which is still perfect after 2 years of commuting every day.

Great value for money compared to the price of other bags and they have a wide selection.

I got this off motorcycleshop have to say its absolutely fantastic, 100% waterproof as I went through a 3 hour monsoon on the way to Clare, when I got there I was pouring water out of my boots but everything in the bag was bone dry. Its quite big too, holds a lot of gear perfect for a durrty weekend

Kreiga make very good but pricey stuff. I have the 30 litre tailpack and the 25 litre backpack. As someone who carries a good weight on their back in all weathers i wish id bought it wayyyy sooner

I was disappointed by the lack of laptop storage pocket and flimsy handles on my Lidl bag.

I have one of these. Good bit of kit. I have the smaller version as well which is great for daily use going to work/gym etc.

I have one of those also. Great job keeps clothes and bits bone dry. Plenty of room in it and comes with straps to winch it down

I use a 5L one on the R6 for carrying my chain around on the tail. Awesome quality bag. https://Rabbit vibrator.com/bikepacks/us-5-drypack

For gym gear you'd wanna go at least 10L I'd say.
