TERRAPIN® SYSTEM 8L
https://www.revelatedesigns.com/index.cfm/store.catalog/seat-bags/Terrapin8L

By far my favorite touring/bike packing/commuting seat bag. This a very versatile rackless bag for all your epic rides that can be easily transferred from bike to bike. Dry bag is removable so you can take it with you (doubles as a pillow!) or replace with mesh bag (for laundry or wet gear) or other bag of similar volume. For commuting, just replace the 8 Litre dry bag with a small disposable shopping/trash bag (I call this specialized trash bag hack the Burra Basura).

Gear Talk / Re: Dynamo - What are you using for a light?
« on: February 04, 2020, 11:56:38 am »
Why a light? Not to be sacrilegious, but why not a USB port and power bank, like the Goal Zero Venture 30 or Guide 10 Plus? I find dynamo powered lights overly complex and expensive, and only useful at night from the bike. A power bank connected to a dynamo would capture energy whenever the wheels are turning and make it usable to charge just about any rechargeable headlamp, tail lamp, helmet light, camp light, navigation equipment, speaker, cell phone, tablet, etc.
