When it comes to traveling by motorcycle few luggage options appeal to both the urban commuter riding a tracker or bobber, and the adventure-ready BMW GS rider. In other words—it’s either sleek or over built. And no one wants to wear a backpack. So, ALMS NYC set out to combine fashion with function, and from the looks of their new Kickstarter, succeeded.
The 12L Cargo Tail Bag, as it were, is waterproof, expandable, fully adjustable, and weighs just one pound. It’s made of sturdy 12oz waxed canvas with taped-seams and mil-spec hardware, and designed to anchor to your bike’s tail or seat without requiring a specialized rack to keep all your essentials safe and sound wherever you’re headed, be it the office or out of town.
The all-black design helps it fly under the radar and look good on most any bike, while plenty of lash-on points and a built in cargo net make stashing a rain jacket, spare liter of oil, or water bottle quick and easy too. Small enough for daily use while capable enough to take you on a true adventure. Dang solid if you ask us.
