Hard Bags

Went out for a ride last weekend and a friend asked if anything had fallen off my bike. We took a look around the bike and could not find anything wrong. Just went to put something in the saddle bag a found a hole in it. Has anyone had this problem before? Not sure if this is a warranty issue or not.

Hole in it, like the lid flew off? Jeez man that would totally suck. Hard to say about the warranty, that could definitely go either way. Good luck.

The hole is at the bottom of the bag. Here is a picture of it. No rats in Alberta

The break looks like something heavy hit it from the inside.

That or a big hard object hit it hard from underneath. Did you hit any major potholes? It doesn't look lime a defect to me.

Wow that a crazy spot to get a hole! Did you drop something heavy in your bag? I really punish the hard saddlebags on my work bike and Ive never had anything like that happen

The only heavy item was the tool kit in the bag.
