Enduro Waterproof Side Bags by Ducati

Do you only wear a few things for a day trip? Made primarily for Ducati Scrambler, these retro-style inner-city side pockets are a must-have for carrying small gear or personal items for day trips. They are waterproof, lightweight and easy to carry.

Of course, there is a limit to how much you can put in luggage like this, but these side pockets expand and contract with the load, making them ideal for short motorcycle trips.

The larger bag has a loading capacity of 3kg and comes with an arm strap that allows you to use it as a shoulder bag. The smallest bag has a loading capacity of 1.5 kg. It is a little smaller than its brother to allow space for The exhaust. Both pockets consist of Clips that attach the pockets to the supports.

The Ducati Scrambler Urban Enduro Magnetic Tank Bag can also be purchased with the Urban Enduro waterproof side bags. The magnet located under the bag allows you to easily mount the luggage on the tank and secure it in seconds. It has a load capacity of 3kg and is made of high frequency welded PVC tarpaulin fabric, which makes the tank bag also waterproof. The only drawback is that the tank bag is mounted on the tank and is not supplied with a Clip-On system. Therefore, you need to detach the bag from the tank, gently pull it on the magnetic base and completely remove the bag whenever you need to refuel, which I find a little inconvenient.

If you are not extremely careful when pulling the magnetic base, you risk scratching your motorcycle tank for overtime, which is certainly problematic.

On the top of the tank bag, there is a small pocket that can be used for your mobile phone, camera, charger or any other small device or object, which I find very convenient.

The Ducati Scrambler Urban Enduro waterproof Side Bag and Magnetic Tank Bag are also equipped with small reflective inserts on the sides to give you a little more visibility in low light conditions.

The Ducati Scrambler Enduro Bags are very useful when it comes to short-distance travel. However, they may not be the best side pockets for long-distance travel, as they are quite small and less sturdy than Mosko Moto bags, for example.

That said. I used the Ducati bags for my motorcycle trip across Canada last September. 2019 and frankly, I was pleasantly surprised by the robustness and impermeability of these bags. During my 30-day trip, it probably rained for 15 days and thanks to the high-frequency welded PVC tarpaulin fabric, my Electronics and equipment stayed dry the whole time.

The disadvantage of using soft luggage is also that you can not really close the bags. Therefore, whenever you get off the bike for a long time, you need to bring your bags and put them back on the bike when you are ready to get back on the road. This is when difficult matter become convenient.

Overall, Ducati Scrambler Urban Enduro waterproof side pockets and magnetic
pockets are sturdy and very practical when it comes to short-distance travel.
They are a bit expensive, but useful and waterproof, which makes them a good
choice for day trips.
