Anyone use a powderkeg? They look indestructible - wondering how they attach to the sled.

I'm not sure yet which direction to go with this bag...

Cat's Cinch Strap #6639-460 made all the difference in the world. Haven't had an issue with the bag since we installed the straps.

I had this same bag, (on sled 3+ seasons)
it expands to hold a TON of things,
I also added a layer of closed cell foam UNDER it, between bag and tunnel, it helps pad things as, one of the OEM rivets was sort of sanding a hole in the bag, so this stopped that
the straps inside and them the webbing straps in side, held everything I wanted in place, on many beat up trails, NOTHING moved on it for me
I would gather if your a real Ricky Racer type, and wanted the bag better secured, you could add some more straps to hold it down better too
but for most folks I doubt the bad is going any where and should last a long time IMO< I was very happy with it!

Bringing up an older thread, but I think I'm either going to get one of the Cat bags - the large or the XL one, or spend more and get one of the linq bags. I'm sure the linq bags are nicer but I'm not sure it's worth the extra cost at this point. Looks like I could get one of the Cat bags for about $150, and the linq option would be closer to $250 - 300, once you factor in the tunnel mounting kits. The one thing that jumps out with linq kit is the ability to add gas at some point, and the slightly easier on/off to take the bag in the hotel each night. Am i missing anything?

Update: When at Novi, bought the new LinQ 2.5 gallon fuel can, and it fits perfect under the seat overhang in the front LinQ brackets, and using the semi hard bag in the rear mount.

Which size linq bag are you using that fits with the fuel can?

I have the Cat bags. I have the current large one and a slightly different one from 3 years ago. They stay dry and lots of room. No gas can though.
