Motorcycle Helmet Bag - Motorcycle Travel Bag
I have a whole herd of helmets, and one of these days, I have to
figure out a better way to store them. Their current resting
place is a rather haphazard lineup on the floor of my office.
Most helmets come with an El Cheapo helmet bag (more like a helmet
sock), but apparently I don't have the 3 hands necessary to work these
sock bags over the helmet, so I usually end up storing my helmets naked.
And since the sock-type bags don't have a handle, they sure don't offer any help for
carrying the load.
The result? Various scratches, dents,
and nicks that seem to mysteriously appear...
here's a solution -- Hardline Products makes a couple of
different style helmet bags that are relatively inexpensive,
easy to use and will give your helmet a nice, warm,
The Hardline helmet bags are made from 600
denier nylon, which is some of the same stuff used in riding
jackets and pants. They're also double-stitched and have

helmet bag is just that -- basic living quarters for your
brain bucket. It has a thin layer of soft fleece
completely lining the interior, it will fit over any helmet
I've tried with room to spare (but not so much room as to make
it look baggy), and it has a handy carrying handle.
deluxe helmet bag is rectangular in shape and has several nice
features. The bottom of the deluxe bag is made from a
thicker vinyl, and it has 4 rubber feet for added
protection. The sides and top of this bag are lined with
foam, which also adds to the protection factor.
There are also two zippered
pockets on either side on the outside of the bag; they're
about 16.5cm deep (6.5") and about 24cm long
(9.5"). The outside of one side of the bag also has
a mesh pocket, which is useful for storing sunglasses, a small notebook
or a cell phone.
This bag also has a small, lined
zippered pocket on the front that's handy for storing
keys. The shape of the bag provides some extra room in
the front to store
visors or tear-offs, which can be stowed by bending them
around the front of the helmet.
It would probably be best to
store the visors in a protective sack prior to putting them in the
helmet bag (see the wBW
review of the
Roadgear Visor Sock). The deluxe bag also has a double handle with a
"hook and loop" fabric cover that keeps the two
handles secured and forms a padded area that makes it easy to
blue bag shown in the photographs above and to the left is the Hardline Products
nylon travel bag. This bag can be used either for
overnight bike trips or any time you're traveling. It
measures about 26cm (10") long by 19cm (7.5")
It has a small zippered mesh pocket on the outside
flap and a top-mounted handle that makes it easy to
carry. Open the travel bag and you'll find a 60mm
(2.5") suction cup that allows you to hang the bag by a
mirror or other hard surface.
There are various pockets
and compartments inside the travel bag for storage of
toothpaste, combs, razors, travel-sized hair dryers and other
morning accoutrements. A neat feature is the removable
compartment sack inside, which has its own suction cup and
allows you to hang it somewhere also to help spread out all
travel bag is big enough to hold just about any number of
toilet articles that you'd need for any trip. I travel a lot,
and I plan on using this bag as my primary toilet kit.
Hardline Products bags are nicely made, inexpensive soft goods that can help make
your next trip just a bit easier.
