MO May Giveaway: Giant Loop 1-Gallon Armadillo Bag Staff
by Staff

Running out of gas sucks. That pit in your stomach when your bike sputters to a stop is deflating, if not a little maddening. Getting stranded because you forgot to fill up, or getting hung out to dry because your bike has a small tank are two life aggravations that are easily solvable. The solution, of course, is to carry more fuel. While most of us are familiar with those red containers they sell at gas stations, and the many different ways we’ve seen them strapped to the back of motorcycles, Giant Loop has another solution. It’s called the Armadillo Bag. And now, they’re giving away a 1-gallon bag to one lucky MO reader.

If you aren’t familiar with Armadillo Bags, these are “flexible, collapsible, lightweight, expedition-ready utility bladders for the safe transport and storage of liquid hydrocarbon products and other powersports and automotive fluids.” Those words are straight from Giant Loop and notice the specific verbiage – clearly a lawyer (or two) wrote the description to avoid legal trouble, since an actual fuel-delivery device has many tests and certifications it needs to obtain to be sold in certain states. But as far as we’re all concerned, the Armadillo Bag is a collapsible fuel jug.

Available in various capacities from one to five gallons, the soft nature of the Armadillo Bag enables it to be mounted and transported in ways you couldn’t do with a traditional fuel jug, increasing its versatility immensely. Sound like something you could use? Then enter the sweepstakes by following the link below.
