Washington Tool Pack ideas

Recommended Posts

Time for a new tool pack....I've been using the Moose qualifier...mostly cuz it was on sale for $10, so I bought 3. They're about worn out, so any new good ideas out there? Or should I just buy a couple more of what I've got?

:banana:

Brett,

you only going tool pack route, or you open to a backpack too? I really like the little "stroke 9" backpack I use.

P.S. I left my gas jug and tarps on your patio......whoops.

Giant Loop is coming out with a small version of thier cool loop bag thing. Looks like the ticket for getting weight off your body if looking to do so. Going to try one when they come out. :banana:

Giant Loop makes some cool stuff. I am using the Blue Ridge Racing enduro pack with good luck. It is not the lightest or smallest pack around but has held up well.

Hmmm, I'll take a look at the Giant Loop stuff. What I'm lookin for is a small, tough, tool pack. A good Dez100 style pack. Don't need to carry the kitchen sink(got one of those).

I still got the vise grip clamped on there. :banana:

WS...yep, you left your gas can here...and I noticed it had gas...I needed a bit of gas to get me and my scooter to the gas station today...your gas can had water in it :lol:

Dern thing left me stranded at the bottom of the hill. Guess I deserved it.

Oh man! I'm sorry buddy! That gas has been swimming in water for months. I gave up worrying about it when I left it out overnight in a rainstorm with no cap on it.

I feel really bad.....why am I laughing so hard?:lol:

if you decide to pack the kitchen sink with you, the Ogio vest works real good!

If you're after a fanny pack, the Ogio 450 is pretty nice. It's got some kinda rubberized texture on the side of the pack that goes against your back, and it keeps the pack from moving around all over the place. I really like that feature about it. I wish they'd make a back pack type of pack with that stuff on the part resting against your back. My one complaint about my Ogio 450 is the latch, or clasp, or whatever it's called that fastens the straps together. It came apart on me at Jones Creek once, & fell off of me while I flloundering around on some bumpy trail (B or C loop, if I recall correctly....).

That is one of my concerns for my fanny pack (Moose.) I am trying to figure out a redundant system to ensure that doesn't happen yet make it quick to get off...maybe hook/loop? Loop sewed on one side and a strap that goes across the front of the quick buckle?

I wound up loosening my belt as much as I could, tying a knot in it, and then fastening the clasp gizzie. It got through that ride, but yeah, something a little more positeve needs to be done to that pack.....

Hornet55, does your Dirt Bike Gear pack have that kinda "rubberized/textured material" on the part of your pack that rides against your back? Ya know, the stuff I attempted to describe in my post above?

wow, I guess I got lucky with my Moose pack, I used the big enduro fanny pack for a while and never had issues with the buckle. Part of the reason I switched to a vest was to have pockets on front for camera and goggle rag, but also, for those of us with no butt the fanny packs tend to pull pants down. :banana:

      Hi, all. DRZ-400S rider from Kodiak, AK here. I'll have a week to burn next week and just purchased ferry tickets to/from Homer so I can do a solo trip on the mainland. I know it's a little late in the season, but does anyone have any suggestions for places I can go? 
      Some places I've looked at:  East End Road (Homer), Crown Point Mine Trail (Kenai Peninsula), Hatcher Pass, McCarthy/Kennicott Mine, Chicken, Denali Hwy, etc.
      I know it's a little late in the season, so some of these areas may not work (McCarthy/Kennicott comes to mind).  It will be my first time riding a motorcycle on mainland Alaska since 1999-2000.  Any suggestions/advice are greatly appreciated!

      Anyone know of any good shops that offer vapor blasting or water blasting or vapor honing. It's all the same thing just different names.
      Looking to have some aluminum street bike frames done so need a place that can handle larger pieces. 
      Some where close to Seattle east side Tacoma that you might recommend. 
      I found the motoshed in queen Anne but they can't do larger items.
