Just recieved my Saddlemen Drifter tail bag 4 days after ordering. Wow! This one makes my old Cabela's bag look like a throw-away. About the same size, but the rigid construction makes for more usable room to pack everything I need for several days on the road (shirts, pants, casual shoes, shaving kit, plus my shorty helmet). The thick leather-looking vinyl exterior will keep things inside dry, and be easy to keep clean.
Here's the best part: mounted in FRONT of the passenger backrest on the seat, it fits perfectly to fill the area behind me and gives me a nice backrest (loaded or unloaded) to lean on. Plenty of mounting options keep it secure.
Well made, good storage space and great looking sitting on my Harley. Looks like it will last forever!
I missed getting this when it was on sale, but DK's regular price is still better than the competitions.
I bought this bag to go on the rack on the back of my Fat Bob. It fits well with the sissy bar and rack. I haven't used it on a trip yet, waiting for the weather a little, but I have ridden with it installed and had no problems. I did mount it and it looks very good with the HD saddle bags installed. The bag definitely holds a lot. The description says comes with bungee cords for mounting. Mine did not have bungee cords, it came with 2 nylon straps and fasteners. They worked no problem, just not as advertised.
