Dry­bags get the 1000-mile test

The sim­ple, cheap so­lu­tion for a week­end trip away


SW-Motech Drybag 350

Tester Si­mon Relph, one month, 1500 miles Wa­ter­proof bags are the order of the day as we head into win­ter, es­pe­cially as many bikes man­age to spray ev­ery­thing off the road onto the rear of the bike. The SW-Motech Drybag 350 (35-litre ca­pac­ity) has a wa­ter­proof zip on the top which is rolled down and se­curely strapped in place to guar­an­tee no wa­ter gets in. The SW Motec is re­ally easy to use and you don’t feel like you need an en­gi­neer­ing de­gree to at­tach it to the bike us­ing the four-point straps that are se­curely at­tached to the bag. On the side of the bag there is a small pocket, just big enough to house the shoul­der strap and mount­ing straps when not in use.

The shiny ma­te­rial is easy to wipe clean if it gets mucky. It’s well-made, re­li­able and has be­come a re­ally use­ful bit of lug­gage.
