The Scramble Rack is optimized for carrying luggage on the sides. The side straps provide plenty of mount points and the spacing is MOLLE compatible. The top mounting surface on the Scramble Rack is minimal and designed for small packs.
There are two versions of this rack.
We recommend Explorer and Watershed Dry Bags

The goal was to keep things minimal on a Honda CRF230L, which already had the smallish tubular steel luggage rack on the tail. The choice was between the Scramble Rack and the Uprising Soft Rack, both would have worked but the choice went to the Scramble Rack due to the simplicity. Adding two GCAG Bag Snakes the Scramble Rack allowed the attachment of one 40L dry bag on each side, pannier style, with room for a jacket tucked into the space just behind the rider. The bags were held secure over hundreds of miles of rough road, dirt road and off road. Perfect! A BMW GS riding friend on this trip commented, "What! 40L? my (Touratech) hard bags are 40L!"
I’m using mine in conjunction with a PMR rack on a WR250R. I have the girth hitch version and am glad I went with it as it gives me multiple ways to attach either to the frame or rear rack. I ended up girth hitching the Scramble Rack itself (somebody in the FB group had the idea) and I love that setup. Bang for the buck is great and gives me the flexibility to attach anything from a bottle holder to a 20L bag on the sides.
I am using a Scramble Rack ahead of the factory hard rack on the Honda CRF230L. The Scramble Rack provides perfect lower attachment points for bag snakes, allowing attachment for larger bags (40L per side), and even a bungee net, keeping the setup compact and light weight. When we arrive at a destination and set up camp we'll often head out to explore or grab food, the Scramble Rack makes it easy to ditch the large bags and anchor Bungee netting for a small bag or folded jacket.
Just got back from an 6 day adventure ride.
The scramble rack worked ok.
Had to re tighten the straps every day.
if I got the bags tied on the correct way it was fine.
But some days The bags were You Low an interfered with my feet .
I think it would work better with smaller side bags, mine were 25L.
The Scramble Rack is a very cost effective way to add tie down spots for all sorts of bags and luggage, such as the Bottle Holster. I’ve recommended this to friends as a flexible alternative to more expensive rackless systems.
