When our riding buddies are together, it means limited space in the truck and all too often our gear getting tossed into the back—which is fine so long as it doesn’t rain. Or snow. Or the route we’re taking to the backcountry isn’t too dusty. Gear’s expensive so we need storage that will keep it well protected against the elements.

Enter the Monsoon Bag from Front Runner Vehicle Outfitters in Agoura Hills, California. Though it’s not an official “gear bag” from a motorsports name you’ll recognize (like Fox, Fly or Shift), the Monsoon Bag is built to withstand extreme conditions. In fact, it is a roof-rack ready bag, which means it’s designed to live outside and on the vehicle.

Sun, wind, rain—bring it on. With sonically welded seams and innovative Thermoplastic Elastomer materials, the Monsoon Bag is a durable option for all kinds of outdoor enthusiasts. According to Front Runner Vehicle Outfitters, this roll-top bag can even carry and protect delicate camera equipment. Writes the company in a May 2017 press release: “It doesn’t matter if it’s camera equipment or a load of rock-climbing gear, the size of the roll-top bag easily tightens and seals around its contents.”

The Monsoon Bag also includes a removable rigid tray that integrates with the company’s Cub and Flat Packs. For more information, see the website.
