HippoHips™ Hybrid Classic “over the seat” or plate-mounted kit

Turkana’s roll-top HippoHips™ is a uniquely designed hybrid hard-mount system. The dual-use can be used as a classic universal type “over the seat“ using the Classic-Strap-Set or on our injection-moulded, Nylon6 glass-filled plate-mounted system. The HippoHips™ universal design will fit the majority of motorbikes soft saddlebag luggage and requires pannier frames on a motorcycle. They can be fitted with manufacturers’ frames or aftermarket frames.
 (Both sets are sold separately)

HippoHips™ is an 8-piece luggage set with two additional removable waterproof and dustproof roll-top bags.

Bugger-ups on old dirt roads, scrapes and drops will always be part of adventure enduro-type travel. HippoHips™ is designed for passionate riders going off the beaten path on remote backcountry trails, where each adventure demands gear that can handle a massive beating and is adaptable to different motorcycles, the HippoHips™ soft panniers is a universal fit design allowing for fitment to most adventure enduro style motorcycles.


A closer look at the Turkana Hippo Hips Hybrid

Removable waterproof/dustproof inner bags.


Each side makes use of a roll-top removable inner bag which is water and dustproof with an IP67 rating. Leave the pannier bags on the bike and only take the inner bags to your tent or to a hotel. If fitted on the Hybrid plates remove the entire HippoHip™ saddlebag pannier.

It has a light colour on the inside to allow you to easier find contents when searching for your stuff on the inside of the bag.

Water might still come between the liner and the outer bag, but it will not penetrate the inner liner. If the worst happens and the liner is damaged it can be replaced without the need to replace the entire bag. When used with Turkana modular packing cubes it is easy to find what you are looking for as each cube has a different colour and makes packing the inner bag easy

The HippoHips™ fits in with the Turkana philosophy of finding that balance between great quality, lifelong durable tough-as-nails soft luggage and importantly, value for money.

Unique Cross-over seat and compression support.

Our load-carrying cross-over straps disperse weight evenly and compress the bags to allow access into tight places when riding those dual sport off-road trails.

The crossover straps ensure the total width of your bike is kept to a minimum and keep the weight centred. The cross-over straps further assist with ensuring the outside of the bag does not droop and remains at the height level when initially fitted, eliminating the tendency to sway into the rear wheel of the motorcycle.

The HippoHip™ bags are made for enduro-adventure bike style riding and for the popular 1000cc+ Adv bikers, as they fit on most motorcycles and suit many different riding styles and preferences. True versatility.

The wide, over-the-seat support strap, connects with a hook & loop to secure the bags to the motorcycle, yet it allows for a pillion to ride comfortably. Depending on your specific bike, this strap may also be installed underneath the seat.
