With its innovative hybrid design, this versatile luggage system can be used in two different ways, making it perfect for all kinds of journeys.      

Firstly, it can be used as a classic universal type "over-the-seat” saddlebag that will fit the majority of motorcycles with some sort of pannier frame. Using the HippoHips™ together with the Classic Strap set they are easy to fit over the seat and strapped to your pannier frames. In this mode the bags are designed to stay on your bike during the length of your trip.  After riding all day on dirt roads or in rain the saddlebags often become very dirty. At your destination you simply take out your waterproof innerbags and carry them to your tent or hotelroom.

Secondly you can use the Hybrid HippoHips as a plate mounted set when used with Turkana's glass reinforced Nylon 6 mounting plates. This gives you quick-release funtionality but keeping the benefits from the classic mounted set. It is still light weight and you can still take out your innerbags when the outerbags are dirty. But when you have to park for the night in a dodgy alley or have to push you bike through a narrow doorway, they can be removed quickly. It can also be used a stand alone bag for easily filtering through heavy traffic, making it ideal for commuting and short excursions.

Designed for rugged terrain and extreme conditions, the Turkana Gear Hybrid Hippohips boasts a range of impressive features, including:

  • Durable construction: Made from high-quality materials and heavy duty stitching, this motorcycle luggage is built to last and can withstand even the toughest environments.
  • Modular: Hippohips are MOLLE compatible. Both sides of the HippoHips are fitted with PALS webbing, enabling you to fit or remove the suplied MOLLE pouches or any other compatible MOLLE product.
  • Waterproof and dustproof: Keep your belongings safe and dry no matter what the weather or terrain throws at you.
  • Field Repairable: No need to throw away when damaged. Field repairable saddlebags mean that most damages should be repairable by anybody with a sewing needle in most places around the world.
  • Backed by a lifetime warranty and damaged gear back up commitment. Also known as the "Oh Buggar" warranty


So if you're looking for a versatile, durable, and practical piece of luggage that can adapt to all your travel needs, look no further than the Turkana Gear Hybrid Hippohips!

After receiving the saddlebags, I took a close look at them. The material and workmanship are top. The functions are also outstanding. I bought the Tadhcne in conjunction with the mounting plates. The mounting plates are stable and easy to attach to the case rack. The saddlebags can be attached to the plates just as easily. I am absolutely thrilled.
