Desert Fox Kalahari Multi-Purpose Rear bag & Backpack

The Desert Fox Kalahari is a rugged off-road motorcycle rear bag, backpack & aircraft cabin luggage compliant bag, all in one.

Designed specifically for rugged off-road use, yet with a multi-pronged approach to on & off the bike functionality.

One bag. Many uses.

An easy to fit, stable 4 -point mounting system makes it suitable for mounting on the rear seat or tail rack of your bike.

A removable waterproof inner ensures the contents are protected from rain, dust & mud.

The Kalahari is also equipped with integrated backpack straps that tuck away neatly into the base of the bag which is padded for additional comfort,

Perfect for daily commuting and weekend trips, it is manufactured from Bullet proof 1680 D Ballistics nylon.

Ballistic nylon refers to a very specific type of nylon fabric that has been engineered for unrivalled abrasion & tear resistance. In fact, its original intended purpose was for the protection of aircraft personnel to protect them from shrapnel and other debris that were the result of gunfire, artillery shell explosions, and other ballistic impacts (hence the name)

Although ballistic nylon was originally created for flak jackets, its durability, cutting & tear resistance (in all directions)  has made it useful for non-combat applications.

As an example Ballistic nylon is used in chainsaw protective chaps covering the front of the chainsaw operator’s legs. Such chaps are usually made with an outer layer of a smooth synthetic fabric, with plies of ballistic nylon inside. When the moving chainsaw chain contacts the chaps and tears the outer layer, the strength of the tear resistant ballistic nylon inners will generally stop the moving chain quickly by causing the drive clutch to slip. As a result, the operator is relatively or completely uninjured by the chain.

1680 D Ballistics nylon does cost more however for demanding applications it is the first choice for premium luggage systems.
