How deep pockets? Elastic cargo net ?
Pockets that would take a disk lock or something like that elastic cargo net would work for tucking things under, entry hole facing the front.

I'm sure that's all possible never tied a cargo net before but seen it done years ago from memory think the guy used a sheet bend but I'm sure Google could help on that one!

The only problem I can see would be if the bag not full the weight of the contents in pocket may pull it out of shape if that matters

I just want to be able to shove a goretex jacket under it or a map nothing heavy.

Side pockets are always handy so you don't have to go rummaging around inside. Mars bars etc!

With all this on the outside what are you going to put in it, too big for just tools. :D

As Arceye suggested earlier a smaller one is what the off roads boys would need, less cumbersome and less room for tools and spares too bounce around, maybe at the same base size to make it an easy option but 2-3" tall(then have the map pocket and cargo net ;) )

Or fit compression straps to it and you have the best of both worlds.

Guys I'm taking all your comments on board think I will end up with a small range of choices to suit ie the off road n rugged, day bag , touring etc and will make a dedicated MT section on my website as I have some other ideas too but for now open for orders with suggestions
