whats the price of the Touratech bag?

I managed to pick up a waterproof roll back last year for £40 and I wished I bought one years ago. Use it all the time now and so much I sold my top box

I have an Ortlieb 59 litre dry bag that I got off fleaBay for £36... then I saw that Lidl were doing some and also Tesco have 2 for £8! :ohmy:

I also have a Kriega R30, but that's a waterproof ruck sac that costs around £125!
