A friend of mine sent this to me recently. Was wondering if anyone here has used this to secure their luggage?

+1 on the bungee cords, and the great thing about bungee cords is that they are cheap.

gotta admit, that is a pretty nice setup. especially if you use a tbag.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

That's a pretty slick set up. I wouldn't be real keen on drilling holes in my bag though.

I can see what the inventor was thinking, but I agree, to me it's cool, but completely unnecessary.
Most bags have built in straps or some type of mounting system built in to them. If they don't, then the bungees take care of that problem.

I've seen what happens when a load that has been secured by bungee cords shifts. and it isn't pretty.....

when the wife and I go touring, we have 4 saddlebags and 2 chopped tourpaks between us. if we can't fit it in there, we don't need it. we do have the airwing racks on top of the tourpaks, but we don't usually use those, but they are there 'just in case'...

I'm sure the guys that like all the new fancy stuff, they'll probably go for it. I've been using straps for years, plus their inexpensive.

Fancy rack but will add unnecessary weight on the tour pack. My T bags have built on veltcro straps using it for years never have failed. Agree with others straps work well and are cheap.
