The Stinger 8 is an incredibly versatile roll-top drybag designed to mount as a tail/fender bag on smaller bikes, for carrying tools, tubes and other essentials, or as a topper on hard-side panniers or top boxes. It also turns into a backpack, in case you need a daypack for hiking into a hot spring, or making a quick trip into town for supplies. The backpack straps stash away in an internal pocket, and then deploy through the opening of the bag, clipping to two d-rings on the bottom. When the Stinger is setup as a backpack its capacity is larger than 8L.
On the bottom of the Stinger 8 we added four sewn-on connection straps that loop through ladderlocks on the top of the bag, so you can connect it to fender cleats on a dirt bike, or to a luggage rack or hard-side pannier. When not in use, the straps stash away in a flat pocket on the back. If you prefer to use a different connection system, there are webbing pass-throughs on the top of the bag which can accommodate any kind of strap.
Very well made and thought out tailbag. Could not be more satisfied. Fits behind me on the rear fender of my KTM 500 EXC-F. Ordered a set of fender cleats to attach loop straps to. No drilling necessary. You can put a variety of gear in this bag. I recommend
This is the perfect bag. It attaches very easily to the rack and when you stop you can just take the straps and use it as a backpack. Couldn’t be any happier.
Optimal tailbag for short ride essentials
Great product! I wanted a small bag to store water and snacks. Has a lot of contact points to attach in a lot of ways. I will be back to purchase more bags.
Purchased a lighter weight bike and no longer wanted to carry the heavy, clunky top case for local riding. Stinger 8L Tailbag was better priced than the competition, and is a well thought out, heavy duty construction bag. Came with all necessary straps to attach to bike, and a smart way to tuck away the straps after it's attached. Holds what I need for a day ride and saves me signification weight over the top case.
