Walmart Fieldline motocycle backpack Review

It was tax free weekend her in SC and NC so decided to look for some cheap work pants/shirts. I went by the lame motorcycle section and there was a box of these backpacks for $34.95 so I took one out and had a look at it and was fairly impressed so I went ahead and purchased it.

Glad I did, the quality is absolutely amazing and I'm guessing you would see this in a motorcycle shop for about twice that or more. It's made of that thick rubbery material and is definitely waterproof. It's a great size and just discovered the pockets in the underside of the 'hood'. When you ride with it, it sits perfectly, for me anyway, on the passenger deck and you feel like you have a backrest. Driving to work was lie driving an easy chair, delightful.

Here's the link to walmart I think. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Fieldline-...Black/23591041

AWESOME

Sorry to tell you... it is NOT waterproof. I have one.... I ruined 2 bible among other things in it. It does have decent space, and I had no problem with zippers catching or breaking... but in my opinion from having it about a tear is that its fairly, if maybe a little over priced. If it works for you, then great... but it it nit waterproof, so be careful.

Yes, even the text in the link says it is "water resistant" NOT "water proof"

Big difference. Even bags I've used that had rain covers I always put stuff I wanted to stay dry in zip lock bags.

Seems pretty substantial to me. I stand corrected on waterproof. I don't plan on riding in weather where I need a waterproof bag but I would think this would be pretty close to dry even in a big downpour. Since it has rained like every day here in SC all summer, I'm sure I will get the opportunity to evaluate further! Still, the quality seems way above the price. But let me wear on it a while. I beat things up pretty good.

Nice find. Wal-Mart seems to have EVERYTHING. I even found New Mexico Chile sauce here.

I was looking for a decent backpack for the bike and this would be great...if only a Walmart near me would actually carry some of the stuff they advertise...ugh!
Same deal with the leather tool bag they claim to carry.

Kc... I'll sell you mine... I put on a trunk and don't use it anymore. Say $20 plus shipping?

When I was looking I thought I saw that you could get it at the Rockaway location. I believe that may be close to your neck of the woods.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"

going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.
