GEAR REVIEWS

ADVENTURE TESTED

When ADV-traveling, it is necessary to find the best quality Bag for your gear. It must be 100% waterproof & very durable to usage wear. There is nothing more annoying than arriving at your destination and finding out that your gear is wet. One of the first bags that you usually add to a motorcycle is the Tank Bag. Located above the tank, it is the most versatile place to store items that you use the most and want to reach often. This could be your camera, your Med-kit, your wallet, or your phone. Using printed maps is also a must in Adventure travel situations, so the Tankbags's conveniently placed map-holder on top makes it even more useful.

Our choice was the Enduristan Sandstorm 4H Tank Bag, made from Enduristan's new 3-layer fabric, a supreme high-tech material. The outer layer of extremely abrasion resistant polymer protects your belongings whilst the inner layer is made of high visibility red vinyl. In between a 1000D Nylon mesh is embedded. The mesh is densely woven yet flexible to allow the 1000D Nylon filaments to align in the direction of the stress for maximum tear resistance.

It features a waterproof YKK zipper covered on the backside and an all-welded design. The main compartment is 100% waterproof. You don't need any rain cover and there is no inner bag you additionally need to open. Elastic ROKstraps ensure, that your tank bag stays in place also on the toughest tracks. Quick-release buckles allow easy refueling and fastening. This tank bag is 100% water, mud, snow, and dustproof and has a fixed capacity of 7 liters.

Many guys riding off-road in hard trails don't like tank bags in general for one good reason: They are often too large and get in the way. Thus Sandstorm 4H is designed without stiff reinforcement, is flexible, and has an optimized shape without the "nutter-effect". The added 7 liters of the Sandstorm is more than enough to keep your most used items close to you but safe from the elements.
