Behold the next evolution in Adventure biking saddle bags!
The Terrapin is a holster-like mount that accepts a drybag or similarly shaped load. With a drybag you get a 100% waterproof system where the load can be quickly removed from the bike for packing or unpacking.
The key to the Terrapin is it's compression system and internal structure. It features a stiff plastic bottom and side sheets. The sides are additionally stiffened with fiberglass to resist outward buldging when an unweildly load is shoved in. The lower side wing straps feature an upward pull, 3:1 mechanical advantage which engages the side panels, yielding massive compression.
