Hypalon is an extremely durable and waterproof performance elastomer utilized in products designed for extreme use; such as whitewater rafts, containment suits, and other outdoor equipment. The material is a very versatile polyethylene (CSPE) synthetic rubber (CSM) noted for its resistance to chemicals, temperature extremes, and ultraviolet light.
By constructing the MotoBags with frequency-welded Hypalon along with Dyneema and Kevlar stitching, we are utilizing the best materials and construction methods available anywhere.
The best in the world. The strongest in the world.
"Back from my trip. We traveled 5,500 kilometres through all types of terrain and weather conditions. The Motobags were absolutely excellent. First of all they were very easy to pack especially with the mesh bags that were included. The 45/38 combination of bags was a perfect fit for my Africa Twin. I was able to carry everything I needed (clothes, tools, food and camping gear) while still maintaining the low weight and balance of the bike. The internal dry bags were excellent and kept out the muck, dust and rain that we experienced. Installation was easy and they stood up to over 1,000 kilometres of rough terrain, bumps and shaking. I can't say the same for one of my riding companions hardbags which sheared off the mounting hardware. The Motobags are tough! Every detail of these bags has been well-constructed and thought out.
Thanks for your communication and service and getting the bags to me as a tester. I like them so much - I'm keeping them! :)
I've attached a few photos from the trip. Thanks, Mike"

"I have to say congrats on the product. I traveled 7,000 km through northern Spain, from Barcelona to Finisterre, crossing the Pyrenees, Aragon, Navarre, the Basque Country, Asturias and Galicia. I went through all types of terrain and all possible weather. The MotoBags have endured the falls, the rain, the hail, the sun, the dust, the rocks, the mud, everything.
Everything is perfect, the interior is dry at all times, even in the ravines of the river. But the most important: I inadvertently stuck my leg between a stone and the Motobags ... Fortunately they are flexible, I avoided an injury! It would not be the same if these were hard panniers .. I must emphasize that the inner bags are very practical with excellent impermeability.
In short, CONGRATULATIONS ON THE MOTOBAGS !!!!
Attached are some photos of the trip. Greetings
"During my recent motorcycle trip to the UK, I got into an accident... with a car coming from the opposite direction. The lucky part of that story? The right side motobag hit the car and it saved my life! It absorbed the majority of the impact! Saving me from serious bodily harm! I ended up on the ground, completely safe and sound, without injury! The car had sustained almost no damage; only some black scuffs on his white paint and on his headlight.
If I had collided with the car with an aluminum pannier, I think the car would have had received a lot more damage, and I think that the impact would have been much more violent, probably injuring me.
Oh, and... the bag itself is not torn!!
"Hi Fred, I just mounted my motobags, they are really beautiful. Light, lots of room, easy assembly and disassembly. I travelled for 4 days with the MotoBags and already 3 people asked me where they could buy them. I'm going to travel in the Alps mid-August, here are already some photos that you can publish.
Have a good day"
"Thank you very much for the great professionalism in your service. The motobags are already mounted, they seem incredible, but I promise to send you other better photos, as soon as possible. If someone near Barcelona needs to see them to convince themselves of the quality, I am at your disposal. Again thanks"
