Axio Hardpack Tailbag

This is an extraordinary medium size tail pack. It's well made, rugged, good looking and offers flexible mounting features. Unfortunately, it is apparently no longer available (at least in the U.S.) no matter how hard a person searches.

I have an overabundance of tail packs and bags, as it happens, and don't seem to use this one very frequently. So . . . rather than simply let it sit and gather dust, I thought I would offer it to the forum.

My mounting technique, on the passenger portion of the saddle, is to secure the front straps to two strips of Velcro I fastened to the underside of the saddle. The long rear straps I thread through the passenger grab rails and then Velcroed the together. Simple and surprisingly secure technique.

Fair price seems to be $75.00 plus shipping (the least expensive method available if you agree). PayPal much preferred.







Nothing to do with the Tail Pack, but . . .

Bloody hell. This blasted air bag suit has inflated on it's own again!!

Can you really lean your back up against this? I could use something that functions as a back rest.

What are the dimensions?

Thanks!

Chris,

I've used it as a back rest with good results though I don't lean against it heavily. It has worked well for me but it is not firmly mounted rider back brace.

The dimensions are as follows: 13 inches wide at the front, and about 8 inches wide at the rear (it's tapered as the photos show). It's 7 inches high at the front and 6 inches high at the rear. It's 14 inches long overall (that's from the center of the front edge to the center of the rear edge). It fits the passenger portion of my Corbin saddle very nicely, and I've no reason to believe it wouldn't fit the stock, or other, saddle just as well.

By the way, there are two padded zipper pouches on the inside of the hard lid and one at he rear of the "main deck" (it holds the shoulder strap). The main compartment has elastic X-shaped retaining straps with a Fastec buckle.

I can post additional pictures if it will help.
