Wondering what makes a great bag, what you should look for when shopping online, and what innovations we consider and manufacture into every piece? Read on to learn more about some of the must-have features and considerations and how Flying Solo Gear can make your bag dreams come true.

Size, Specifications, and Functionality: Motorcycle Bags 101

We get it—the growing range of motorcycle clothing, accessories, and parts on the market make shopping online feel like being a kid in a candy store. Instead of getting bogged down by great-looking features and forgetting to consider a bag's safety, functionality, and durability, we’ve rounded up some of the must-haves that every kit should include—regardless of what it looks like.

  1. Durability: From the textile choice to hard inner shells and back protectors, the durability of a bag isn’t only about how many years you’ll get out of it—it’s how it will stand up against the elements, protect your gear, and keep you safe.
  2. Weather-proofing: Waterproof tailbags might seem like a luxury—until the wind and rain damage everything you’ve stored. For the riders who commute to work every day and those travelling on multi-day trips, make sure that your supplies are protected from the elements and water in every way possible—from materials, to zipper locks, to pockets.
  3. Accessibility: All the well-packed gear in the world won’t make a difference if you can’t access your supplies when needed. Look for features that have considered how you’ll use your stuff—even when donning an inflexible one-piece suit. From glove-friendly pulleys to well-placed zippers, ensure you’ll be able to access your water, ID, and sustenance as needed.

Wondering what features Flying Solo Gear Co is continually redesigning and how we’re getting every rider ready for the road?

  1. Streamlined Straps: With anti-distraction technology to ensure your eyes stay on the road and your backside doesn't get whipped by straps in the wind
  2. Fade-resistant Fabrics: To get a long life out of your bag, we source textiles that can stand up to long outdoor trips in the Australian sun.
  3. Contouring: To reduce rider fatigue and prevent wind drag, you can stay upright and in the right position.
  4. Watertight Seams: We’ve ensured that what is meant to stay dry will stay dry. Each bag is designed to be used outdoors, from watertight zippers and seams to rainproof fabric.
