Two pocket rows cater to everything from pliers to wrenches to flashlights though customers will have to provide their own tools. Perfect for packing light, the Trail’s End measures 17 inches in length by 16 inches in width and rolls into an ultra-compact footprint. The self-fastening strap and carrying handle also make unloading the bike even easier. The Trail’s End Large Tool Roll retails for $39.95, but riders can also take a proactive approach to maintenance with Rigg Gear’s new exhaust heat shield.
Constructed from lightweight aluminum, the Rigg Gear exhaust shield was developed to save rack-less luggage from heat damage.

The plate provides 7 inches (length) by 3.25 inches (width) of coverage and it also boasts a lifetime warranty. At $24.95, the Rigg Gear Exhaust Heat Shield is an affordable way to protect your luggage and stay on the open road.
