Smile OGIO 450 Bumbag/Fannypack call it what you will. its GREAT!!!

I just bought one of these a few weeks back!

OGIO - 450 - Moto belt pack

I have NO involvement with the company whatsoever, but this is such a bloody great bit of kit I have to tell you guys about it.
there are more features then you cn imagine, u can carry tools, a waterbottle, some snacks and a spare tube, it even has a waterproof zip ( dead clever that is) to keep your money/phone/smokes dry!

I paid $37 plus tax about $41 total for mine and in the USA u get a LIFETIME warranty, but rest of world/ europe only get a 30 year warranty.... still...... Id be happy with a 2 year warranty!

It also has "non slippy rubberry fabric" on the inside so it "clings" to ya, it dont slide about and I have used it off road in some pretty severe situations.

would I buy another? Hell Yeah!

Fanny tool bags

They certainly look cool but unless you're on a 1 day enduro competion ride, do you really need tools so readily to hand? Also, what are the implications if you come off and have 2 Kgs of tools strapped to your back?

The only baggage you carry should be in the panniers

I do a lot of 1 day rides anyway so having a bag that allows me to carry a spare tube, some levers, a few wrenches and a couple of energy bars is great.
I have never had a problem with coming off wearing a "fanny pack", I ride a slow to moderate speed offroad and most spills are at walking pace or just above..... I mean lets face it, bikers will, if riding off road eventually drop their bikes, and if I worried too much about getting hurt I wouldnt ride.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
