Need a Waterproof Garment bag??!!

I appeal to the knowledge of the masses.

I am in the Navy and ride my MC to work everyday carring my uniform. On my LT, it folds very nicely into the top case. But as the weather turns nasty and icy, I will ride the GS-ADV so that I do not cry if I was to drop the LT. Anyway, any top case for the ADV is way to small for a wrinkle free uniform. I just planned on straping a garment bag either across the top of the sidebags or over the top case. If anyone has a bag solution or completely different idea, I am all ears.

Thanks in Advance!!

Brian,

This may not be exactly what you are looking for, but these are waterproof...

The bag "gulfxray" is talking about is what I use, but I'm not worried about wrinkles. How about this, http://www.cyclestuffusa.com/index.a...D&ProdID=14592

Brian - what's the chances of having the majority of your uniforms already at your work place? I know your situation is prolly different than mine wuz, butt living off base for four years, and riding my m/c back and forth to work, I left most of them on base in a locker in a closet near where I changed clothes; then rode in, and out, in civvies. Had the advantage of laundry services being on base tho.

Just a possibility ..... maybe! Good luck in finding a workable solution.

just pick up a good float bag at your local boating store, theymake them in all sizes add a thin aluminum or light plastic bottom to it to keep it flat

Looks like the 45L pizza box is bigger than the LT box footprint.

Have you thought about an Aerostitch one-piece riding suit? They were originally designed for wearing over business clothes while commuting.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Perfect timing. While looking for waterproof stuff I did find the aerostich site and really like the hiviz suit.

Seriously thinking about that, thanks.
