The ShawShank Motorcycle Travel Bag by Iron Thread


So it’s simple….. We spend a lot of time traveling on our motorcycles. We have a few favorite large travel bags that we use over the years, but we always talked about a creating a streamlined medium sized bag to our arsenal. Well, we designed and manufactured “The ShawShank” motorcycle bag:  our multi-day wanderer bag that can be tied down to any bike. The true vagabonds mindset is carrying the essentials whatever that might be (jacket, vest, tools, rain gear, stash, beer, etc). “So if the road becomes your bride our bag will keep you satisfied wherever you may roam.”


-grey industrial heavy weight canvas fabric

-black adjustable length webbing strap with handle

-iron thread logo embossed black leather label

-size when bag is filled, closed and standing upright: 16″ high x 9″ diameter

-top loading cylindrical shape with four fold metal riveted closure and clip

-inner top flap with zippered pocket

-designed in Vermont and Made In USA

  • Our bags do well with a waxed oil finished making your bag water resistant. Filson-Oil-Finish
