SW-Motech's new Legend Gear Leg Bag

SW-Motech’s Legend Gear Leg Bag Review

SW-Motech's new Legend Gear Leg BagMotech’s new Legend Gear Leg Bag offers a place to store a smartphone, wallet, keys and other on-the-road essentials – helping to cut out awkward fumbling in pockets at fuel stops, tolls etc, and ensuring valuables remain handy at all times.

Compact – it measures just 19.5 x 13 x 5cm – yet surprisingly spacious (1.25 litre capacity), the Leg Bag  is carried using the Legend Gear Holster, with a single strap around the thigh. It is attached to the hip either by threading one’s belt through a loop on the Holder or using the optional waist strap. Both thigh and waist straps have an anti-slip coating and are adjustable, for unrestricted movement on and off the bike.

Contents are protected by the padded interior sections and the Napalon synthetic leather and waxed canvas shell, with a weatherproof PU-coating. An additional rain cover is also supplied.

Inside there are two main storage compartments, three map holders, and two pen holders to keep contents organised. Access is via two-way zips with large fabric tabs, so they can be opened and closed with gloved hands.

The Leg Bag can be quickly and easily removed from the Holster using SW-Motech’s unique M.O.L.L.E military-style strap system and it can be attached to other Legend Gear Tail Bags, Tank Bags, Saddle Bags and even the Messenger Bag. The Legend Gear Smartphone Bag can also be attached to the Leg Bag for additional carrying capability.

The Review

What a great idea, why has no one done it before!?

We all use a bum bag or small tank bag to keep change, wallet and a mobile phone in but this is a novel way of additional storage for small items and is completely unobtrusive to your riding and doesn’t intrude on your existing trouser pockets. Secured by a waist strap and also a thigh strap making it feel very secure.

The compartment inside is small but it is designed to only carry any essentials you might need immediate access to. Probably more suited to the touring community but nonetheless a great and innovative idea. 

Very well made, and a really good early stocking filler. 🙄
