The X-Country advantages at a glance:
The Stelvio roll top bag
Roll top bags are handy things. They don't require zippers, hold a lot of gear and are very easy to live with… so what could possibly be improved on them? Three things: add our flexible and adjustable mesh on the top, make it a double opening one (because the stuff you need when it's on the bike is always on the other side of the opening) and add a soft protective layer on the mounting side to protect your gear. The Stelvio, named after the world famous European mountain pass, is a well thought out bag. Top quality workmanship, attention to detail, plus top notch materials make the Stelvio double ended roll-top one you don't want to do without!
Available in bright colours, for maximum visibility and to match the colour of your bike. The inside has the same colour as the outside so you can easily find your stuff.
Made in Europe and designed in Europe by people who ride. Big, waterproof, dustproof, no zippers to get blocked and the unique elastic mesh on the top for water bottles, wet weather gear etc.

X-Country Luggage, Luggage that works!
Ever since we started Nomad-ADV we've looked high and low for high quality and easy to use soft luggage. Luggage that will go the distance and which you'll love for it's simplicity. Alas, we couldn't find the design, nor the quality of workmanship or the user friendliness we were after, until now!
Most makes have too many straps and buckles, which are only there to compensate for a poor design. They take too much time to mount or unmount from the bike and are a hassle to get into with gloves. Some come with supposedly easy to use quick lock systems, which in the real world don't work all that well, wear out quickly, need to be perfectly clean to work and rattle. Quite a few have way too many fiddly external pockets too, all with zippers which won't last all that long in sand and mud, and yet we all like to have external pockets of some description. Ballistic nylon is needed for strength and abrasion resistance but all the luggage made from it either leaked right from the start or started doing it shortly after, when the thin waterproof membrane on the inside of the bags started to split. It was clear a complete re-think was needed! To make it even more complicated we also wanted something which is made in Europe, rather than China, which meant just about any well known brand was out of the question as they are virtually all, fully or partly, made in China these days.
Everyone we met said it wasn't possible to manufacture in Europe anymore. It would be too expensive. Well, they were wrong! Enter X-Country. High quality motorcycle luggage that can handle the dirt, the rain, the mud and the dust. Made from heavy duty PVC with a ballistic nylon outer shell for impact and abrasion resistance. Every seam is double hot welded and in the back and bottom of each bag you'll find extra protective cushions built in to protect your gear. The quality of workmanship is second to none, the materials top notch and the price more than reasonable for the quality offered. The choice is yours, buy a European quality product and support a family business, or go oriental.
