Updated Biltwell EXFIL Luggage Options
California based Biltwell has updated two of its award-winning EXFIL throw-over soft luggage saddlebag options with enhanced features and ergonomics.
Both the options seen here are available in black and manufactured in a durable, UV-treated 1680-denier ballistic nylon exterior that resists moisture and fading. They have strong, flexible EVA foam panels inside to maintain main compartment structure and durability.
MOLLE system on the exterior provides options for attaching accessories and extra gear; one main and two secondary compartments are secured with rustproof nylon zippers and a zippered clamshell cover on the main compartment locks closed with two 1.5 inch wide (36 mm) reflective polyester straps and Duraflex quick-release buckles; the high-vis orange interior lining makes spotting contents easier.
The EXFIL 18 has a 10" wide x 8" deep (254 mm x 203 mm) zippered pocket on the clamshell top and a two-piece mounting yoke with adjustable hook and loop panel fastens to both bags with extra large, heavy-duty nylon zippers.
Universal fit means they are compatible with a variety of aftermarket saddlebag supports; multiple D-rings and MOLLE points on bag exterior provide options for carabiners/bungee cords and there is a hidden cable port into the main compartment; waterproof nylon rain covers with elastic gathers and drawstring closure provide extra protection in extreme conditions.
The EXFIL 18 weighs in at 5.55 lbs (2.5 kg) and measures 9" high, 16.5" long and 15.25" wide.
The double capacity EXFIL 36 has an extra large 15" long x 7" wide PVC-treated main compartment door featuring double zippers with a single paracord pull for speedy closure. The bag bottoms are reinforced with heat-resistant, heavyweight canvas panels; the main compartment features three elastic mesh pockets and one vertical pocket and adjustable straps inside main compartment to secure rolled clothing, fuel bottle or other gear. There is a mesh document pocket with two zippers inside the waterproof security flap.
There is also a 15.25" wide x 7.25" deep (388 mm x 184 mm) exterior pocket beneath security flap for documents and small essentials with a 9" wide x 4.5" tall (240 mm x 114 mm) clamshell pocket with double zipper pulls beneath security flap that is accessible without opening the main compartment. Double-sided straps are included for securing the bag to appropriate mounting points on the motorcycle; additional features include hand-sewn seams with high-strength polyester thread.
