Cortech Super 2.0 Saddlebags
Great for the money.
Girlfriend bought these for me after some research. A bit tricky to get on, but hold in place rather well. They're also very durable.
The scratch/rub guards are quite effective at keeping your plastics in good shape.
The only thing I can't fit in there is my helmet, but that's only because I have a huge head and the opening isn't quite large enough.

Great product! Helps out a lot for daily drivers.
Lots of space. Easy to install. Has a nice soft interior that will protect anything you need. Straps leave many options for securing. If done right, very sturdy and hardly move.

Right size and great workmanship.
This set of bags is the perfect solution for being able to carry my stuff. They sit on the bike maintaining their shape and can be easily expanded for more space. They go on and come off easy enough, which is what I was looking for.

These saddle bags are a good choice for some casual storage. Cortech also make some other bags that work well with the saddlebags, like the tail bag and tank bags. Their instructions aren't so good. The photos are very close up and b&w making it hard to tell what they are trying to show you. The text doesn't make it any easier. But the installation isn't that difficult so it is easy to figure it out. They don't affect the handling of my motorcycle and stay put and don't move around.

Good Bags for the $$$.
Just did first road trip with the saddle bags on my 2013 Z1000. Bags worked well, few things I didn't like. They sag down a bit more than I expected and getting the fitment sorted out is a work. With the bags expanded, getting the rain covers on is near impossible (in the rain is no fun) and once on, they don't totally waterproof the bag, due to how the bags hang over the seat, they only cover 3/4's of the bag. They actually catch water, so you end up with a puddle inside the bag.
I'm on the fence if I get the tail bag that attaches, or sell them on Craig's list and try again.

Better value than hard cases
I'm just not willing to shell out a grand for hard cases. Thats really what it comes down to. I gave these soft bags a try, and they are great so far.

Great product, but not 100% what I was expecting
First off lemme say that the quality and durability of these bags is extremely good! Bought it for my '05 CBR600F4i. Fits nicely and still has plenty of room in between the bag and my exhaust, which of course keeps the bags from burning....
Now my one and only complaint: my bike has a banana seat instead of the split seat. I was hoping to install the bags with the strap placed underneath the seat instead of on top as shown in the pictures. Because of the design of my seat and where the locking mechanisms are set, I had to do some adjusting. Basically, I faced the bags the other way, and placed the skinnier strap under the seat while I kept the thicker one on top of the seat. Still fits nicely and is still secured to the bike.
