Cortech Dryver Tail Bag
Too small for the money paid
Its not a bad tail bag. Its actually pretty nice and looks excellent on a street bike.
The problem is that you can get much more for your money. Once you put your wallet, phone, spare keys, and a P&J sandwich in there, it is full.
I did not think I would need a whole lot of room in the bag, however, I do wish I had got something larger.
If all you are looking for is a place to stash your phone, wallet, and spare keys in while you ride then this is a great bag...just a bit overpriced in my opinion.

Cortech Dryver Tail Bag Review
I bought this tail bag to hold some things on my commute to work, instead of having everything stuffed in my jacket. It is a quality product and it's been very handy to quickly put away a wipe rag, phone, hat and other small items in it. It built well and hold its form. I haven't had to use the rain cover on it as yet, but I'm sure it works well. The only issue I have with it is that once it's strapped in, there is no way for the buckles to remain in place once you unbuckle it to take it with you. It would be better if the attaching straps and the bag were separate with additional buckles to attache just the bag and leave the straps on the bike. I don't take mine off of the bike, so I had to zip tie the straps for additional security. Overall, it's a good bag to have and I'd recommend it to others.

Helpful storage addition
This is a fairly simple storage unit which helps add a small amount of carrying capacity. I'm using this for my work commute at the moment in place of a backpack. It fits my lunch, a small water bottle and maybe an extra shirt.
I was a little bummed that it's just a little too small for a pair of gym sneakers, if it was tiny bit bigger I'd be happy. It will be nice for extended weekend rides to bring water, some tools, extra gloves ect.
Overall a good purchase, a little pricey but looks nice and sleek on a sportbike and not difficult to attach to the bike.

Good small tail bag. Looks good, needs more pockets.
A good small tail bag. Big enough to hold wallet, phone, maybe your lunch. You won't be putting any textbooks or spare shoes in here. Think 4 cans of beer laying down, that's about what it'll hold. Has a removable rainfly that works fine for waterproofing. Only complaints are it needs more internal pockets, and the attachment straps are way too long for my setup. Could have used a couple of different lengths to choose from. But if you are running the straps under your seat it'll be fine.

Great product and price
I use this for traveling around Oahu, Hawaii. I put a $600 Nikon Camera in this guy and bounce it all over the place on the tail fender of my sports bike. You do need the cover to keep items water proof, if left out all day. I do accidentally kick it with my heal when getting off and scuff the lid. A quick brush of the hand and 'all is better'. You have to be creative in hooking the straps up to make it look like it belongs. I put the first two under the seat and leave the clips tucked in when not in use. The rear two, hooked under the fender and are kept in a drawer when not in use and installed minutes before take off. Nobody messes with it and real motorcycle riders leave hundreds of dollar jackets, helmets laying on top of their gas tanks. Who is going to mess with this little guy?

It fits the bill for a small bag.
It's a bit small but carries the essential items I take on every ride. It mounts perfectly on a Yamaha FJR and it's a quality bag. It is a clamshell design so some of the usable space is in the lid. This means that some items, water bottle or cylindrical items might fall out when opening and may have to be held in as you close it. It replaces a 13 liter Corbin Smuggler when i have a passenger just to gain some more space.
