Has anybody tried these yet? Even on the Nelson-Rigg website, there are no reviews. I'm guessing they're pretty brand new. I found something on the internet that said they were released in November 2015. I'm kinda drooling over these. Might pull the trigger, but would like to know what people might be concerned about with these. I have PMR rear side racks and can't see a problem, but you never know.

My current soft bags are some expandable Joe Rockets from circa 1981, so it's time to upgrade. Thanks.

They seem a little small but that might just be the perspective of the photos.

I like them.
I was going to order a set of Wolfman E 12s this morning, now I have to think about it a bit.
Particularly because I've had good luck with Nelson-Rigg quality in the past.

They are within an inch of the Wolfman E 12s in every dimension when not expanded, so I assume they are about 11 liters per side, expandable to 13 liters...?

The purchase decision for me between the two is going to be D ring lash points on the top. Whoever makes it easier for my tent, bag, and pad to be secured wins.

I liked the E-12's too. These seem to be N.R.'s competition. I will probably try the 020's. :pardon:

I had put off getting these bags for a while. However, as we all know, you are only as good as the woman you trapped into marriage. My wife took the reigns on this and ordered a set of 020 bags from the fellas at Procycle as a surprise! :blush: Guess I'll put of that divorce for this year. :rose:

The bags are compact, but they expand nicely. I have a set of PMR side racks and they strap onto them like they were made for each other. I imagine that when I head out for my Oregon ride this year, the 020's will be a bit small. I will be using a 40 liter dry bag on that trip so I'm not too worried. For day trips around the mountains , I think they will be perfect. Hopefully they are durable. Only more rides will tell. So far I am happy with the size, fit, and price.

I'm looking at these or the wolfman e-12's. The e-12 are about $100 more so I'm leaning toward the RG020. How big is the tool pocket on the bottom? would it hold a water bottle?
