AltRider Hemisphere Waterproof Soft Panniers

AltRider Hemisphere soft panniers combine ultimate functionality and extreme durability to create the most versatile pannier on the market. When used correctly they are 100% waterproof and dust-proof. Hemisphere soft panniers offer lighter weight and a narrower profile than aluminum hard boxes. With approximately 125 liters of storage space, the Hemisphere soft panniers are designed for larger adventure bikes -- perfect for that Saturday ride or multi-day treks off the beaten path. The Hemisphere soft panniers are constructed from ballistic nylon, using military grade stitching and fully taped seams in all dry bags. 

After a rigorous testing process, AltRider designed an innovative holster system with a full length nylon belt around the top of the holster. Not only is this belt anchored to the center piece on each end, it is looped over and box-stitched back onto itself for incredible strength. This technique was chosen due to the high stress put on the corners when under load. The holster is secured to the bike with nylon compression straps which wrap the entire pannier to prevent the "hammering" effect of loaded bags on rugged terrain. Oversized sleeves on the outside of the bags keep the compression straps in place and prevent snagging if the bike goes down. Custom aluminum tension hooks are easy to install but won't come undone under load.

Upper Compartments // 68 liters total

Each side of the holster has an upper compartment with a removable 34 liter dry bag. These custom dry bags are constructed from vinyl coated polyester and feature a roll top closure utilizing 1.5" delrin buckles -- easy to use, even with gloves on. This roll top closure allows the bag to expand or collapse depending on capacity requirements and fully seals out the elements. The dry bags are perfect for your items that need to stay completely dry -- clothes, sleeping bags, electronics, etc. Because these items are lightweight, they can be stored high on the bike without sacrificing handling. The dry bags are designed to function off the bike as well -- each has a male and female buckle, allowing you to buckle the bag shut to keep out the elements and create a carrying handle. A drain hole in each compartment prevents water from pooling underneath the dry bags when the weather takes a turn for the worse. When the dry bags are removed, the holster can be used to carry other items or closed using the compression straps.

Lower Compartments // 30 liters total

The soft panniers also feature lower compartments with removable 15 liter dry bags for storing heavier adventure essentials -- tools, camp stoves or other hefty items. Storing these heavier items closer to the ground maintains the handling of the motorcycle, while protecting your lighter items from accidental damage. Special nylon was selected for the interior of the lower compartments to reduce friction, making it easier to slide the dry bags out. Drain holes are strategically located to allow water to drain from the exterior holster while the custom dry bag stays dry and secure. Dry bags are secured using a double strap system to keep them in place, no matter how rough the trail gets.

Removable Top Kit // 28 liters

A removable top kit dry bag offers 28 liters of storage space, and is fastened with 2 metal cam-lock buckles and 1” webbing. The versatile top kit can be converted to a back pack when removed from the bike. The rugged design of the cam-lock buckles won’t allow any movement of the straps, regardless of riding conditions. The cam-lock strap system can also be used to secure a multitude of other items -- haul exactly what your adventure requires. The harness is padded underneath the top kit, allowing passengers without removing the luggage.

Please Note: Hemisphere Soft Panniers feature a unique design based on which side of the motorcycle your exhaust is located. Left and right side exhausts are asymmetrical and will have a slightly smaller pannier on the exhaust side. Bikes that feature exhaust in the center or on both sides will have panniers of equal size. These layouts are intended to prevent the panniers from contacting the exhaust. Hemisphere Soft Panniers are designed to work with an existing ‘hoop style’ side rack. Check with your OEM for available options.

    Best soft panniers on the market

    (On an '11 GSA) At 125 liters they have a capacity matching or exceeding hard panniers. This is best in class as far as I’m aware and runs counter to the perception that going to soft panniers will have you sacrificing payload size. I have since used another mfg's soft panniers on another bike and while those are good, I miss not just the capacity but that they're so easy to take on and off the bike, along with the ability to store heavier stuff down low. . Installation and removal are a breeze. They really stay secure and are durable. My rear shock bolt busted so you know I wasn’t riding easy trails. I’ve put about 2,000 miles on them in Death Valley and Baja and they’ve stood up to all that was thrown at them. Size can be deceiving though, as one still must fit each dry bag back into the compartments/holsters. They’re easy to over-stuff and then find you can’t fit into the lower holster. Over-stuff the top bags all you want but you will experience what I'm calling "muffin top." :lol: The padded harness means you can ride a pillion rather comfortably, as Eric Lane discovered when his bike broke down in Baja 45 miles from Bahia de los Angeles. He said “your bike is more comfortable to ride as a pillion than my bike!” Probably the coolest feature is the “next-generation” lower compartments designed to carry your heavier items (tools, tubes, irons, compressor, camp stove) or items you don’t want mixed w/your clothes/food like a 1.5 liter gas bottle or bug spray. It’s subtle, but I have found it truly does make handling the bike easier than with my heavier (and higher) hard panniers. Without the removable top kit, the system makes carrying other large loads like a pillion, larger duffle bag, case of beer or bundle of wood extremely easy and stable. Only improvements: Some kind of reflective logo or piping on rear side of bags like they have on the sides to aid in rear visibility Tie down loops on top are hard to get standard buckle type straps under. Carabiners may be your best bet here. I feel much more secure now that I’m not riding off road with hard panniers. These are the perfect size and allow me to keep that weight down low for optimal handling. They are also truly dust and waterproof!

    Hemisphere Pannier

    I will start off my review with plus points. These have to be some of the best made panniers I have ever had, the quality of the manufacture is second to none and I am a sure that they will stand up to wear over years of use. The idea of inner bags is great and a lot of thought has gone into them. However they are not for me, I wont be using them at all, they were bought as a present and I cant take them back which is unfortunate as they are not cheap. The big problem is the solid section joining the panniers together, I have no idea what bike they are designed for but way to wide for a GS1100 with a TT rack and too narrow for a KTM990 with standard OEM pannier racks, this means the top of the bags are pulled in and the bottom the panniers dont sit flat against the racks, the same joining base is WAY to big, I have it mounted as far back as it will go and fixed right on the edge of the carrying rack and it still takes up space on the rider seat!! the only way I can use them is to take them to a shop and have them altered. I understand why its a solid base and not adjustable but it has the disadvantage that it will only completely fit one bike and side rack combination, and it does not fit either of mine. I have only given one star that is because they dont fit either of the bikes I own, I would allocate 5 out of 5 for build quality and to be fair the design of the bags themselves they are fantastic, its really only 1 out of 5 for overall usability of of the package and its design which for me is useless, in that the bags dont fit the bike and I cant sit on the bike without sitting on the stiff plate joining the bags together which is far from comfortable. sorry AltRider there are better designs out there.
