Cortech Dryver Tail Bag
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.

Love this bag!
My first purchase was a pair of saddlebags but they were much too large for my needs. Found this one and easily attached it to the back of the seat of my little 2005 Ninja. Don't bother too much trying to do that with the enclosed directions; you'll figure it out for yourself just by looking at it....although now that I am looking at the pic above once more, I think I put it on the bike backwards LOL! Got one pair of straps under the seat and the other pair attached to the rear directional signals. I have a very large wallet which fits easily, plus sunglasses, large cell phone, large set of keys...I can actually put my whole crossbody bag and a small textbook in there and just blip on over to class! Good construction, seems sturdy and secure. Great choice for this Brooklyn girl.

Perfect for what I need.
I wanted something small and unobtrusive, but with looks that don't detract from my bike. It needed to be big enough to hold some basics that I won't leave on the bike, and don't want to stuff in my pants pockets. Items such as my sunglasses, my GPS, my toll way I-pass, smart phone, and some similar items for my passenger. But it needed to be small enough to carry when off the bike. It needed to be securely attached to the luggage rack on the tail of the bike, but easily detachable to take with me. This bag does all of that. I also like that it is "stiff" and holds it shape. The interior has some areas to secure loose items, and a small zippered pocket where I keep my bike's registration and proof of insurance.
This tail bag was a replacement for a magnetic tank bag that I had used for years. But the tank bag got in the way of me seeing the speedometer/tachometer, etc. which is on the tank, and the bag itself was scratching the finish. Plus off the bike this new bag is easy to carry with a simple handle and no flapping magnets like the old tank bag.
Overall, and especially for the price, this was literally perfect for what I needed and I am very happy with this purchase.

Well made, looks great on a sport bike.
Enough room for sunscreen, water, hat and a few other small items.

Perfect to carry the basics!
I bought this in hopes of being able to carry basic items on the back of my 2013 ZX14R. The Cortech Dryver fit the bill perfectly. I had purchased a Sargent seat from Revzilla knowing I would not be using the stock ZX14R rear seat cowl. I needed a tailbag to carry day-today basics. This tailbag is perfect for that purpose! It is perfectly molded to hold its shape and carry a limited number of items, but that is what it was intended for. Carry your cell phone wallet, keys and a few loose items. I just leave it on the back full-time and take the items with me when not in view of the bike. It is high quality and looks like it was built specific for the bike. I have Kriega gear for long distance touring, and leave day-to-day items for my Cortech tailbag. Very satisfied with the purchase.

It took me a quick internet search to figure out how the straps were supposed to mount. Once I got past that, it was a breeze. Since then the bag has been outstanding. It holds just enough for me and a mountain trip. A shirt, glasses, phones, wallet, water, tire pressure gauge, and a little more. It went through some rain and hail yesterday and held up great. I would highly recommend this bag.

Low profile tailbag for "around town"
This bag is very low profile yet surprisingly has a lot of storage! I like the velcro "flap" inside to secure stuff and the little pockets for pens/papers and such.
The zippers are easy to work with gloves. Install was a snap. I just crossed the two straps under the seat and secured. The bag is easy to remove without undoing the straps from under the seat and has nice little carry handle. The "hard" top lid allows it to keep it's shape.
