AltRider just introduced another product for the hardcore ADV riders and high-mileage riders alike. The new SYNCH Dry Bags are designed to be easily accessible, easy to open, and able to carry loads of stuff (see size offerings below), all while keeping your things dry. These are not saddle bags, but on-off the bike top bags.

AltRider’s SYNCH Dry Bags

One of the coolest features are the custom straps. For the equipment you can’t fit in the bags, you can strap them to the top with the custom straps (only available on the 25 and 38-liter bags); meaning, you don’t need to set up straps for your bag and everything else. Also, tie-down straps on some bags double as shoulder and carrying straps for the times you need the bags off the bike.

The new SYNCH Dry Bags are designed to withstand dust and water intrusion, and hold up against extreme temperatures. Each bag is purposefully produced for durability. We’ve used AltRider’s saddle bags before and liked them, so hopefully we’ll have the opportunity to test these bags soon.
