This is my second bag from Trip Machine. I also have the black mini pannier on T120. It has come in handy plenty of times. It is extremely functional and adds character to the bike. Everyone loves the look it gives the bike. I wanted the cherry military duffel as soon as it came out game out, but was hesitant to pull the trigger due to covid and the state of the world at the time. I wish I would have taken advantage of the 20% pre-order. I kept looking at it but just couldn't do it. I recently took a trip with a few friends and they made fun of my book bag. I took it as a sign that I needed an "adult" bag and immediately thought of the military duffel. Just got it today and I couldn't be happier. It is an incredible bag of great quality, but most of all, it looks amazing. Bonus: Shipping, packaging, and customer service are world class. Bag also came with a rain cover for road trips.
I just received my cherry red duffel. Communication from Trip Machine during the shipping of the product was first rate. When the bad arrived, I was floored by how great the bag looked! It looks & feels like it’ll last a lifetime, too. I test packed it with a weeks worth of clothes, a towel, a hoodie & toiletries and strapped it to my Bonneville for a 150 mile Shake down ride. Once I found the best way to strap it on, the duffel stayed put like the factory installed it. I had to tighten a strap one time, but that was because my contents shifted a little (hence the test pack before my big road trip). The bag is well constructed, solid & rides secure. Well done, Trip Machine! You’ve crafted a masterpiece! I look forward to many adventures with it!
