Firstgear Torrent Duffle Bag
Awesome bag. I looked at many others before settling on this one. I got the 40L bag and it fits perfect on the back of my BMW 1150GS and on the top box of my goldwing 1500. Waterproof and easy to use. A+

Great camping or touring bag
I bought this bag for a camping trip and it worked really well. I was able to put everything except my sleeping bag in here; and thats because I have a bulky sleeping bag. My tent, stove, food, sleeping pad, clothes, and other misc items all fit inside the bag. The straps it came with to strap the bag down worked really well on the bag as well. Look and feels well made and I recieved the bag pretty fast after ordering it.

Good overall bag; tie-downs not as good
Just received the bag and the overall quality good. However; when I was looking at the product online I couldn't determine if it came with the tie-downs to secure it to my bike. Called customer service who informed me that yes the tie-downs were included, and of course they were. Problem is I failed to ask a few more questions as to what type of tie-downs. For whatever reason I thought they would be like the Triumph dry-bag tie-downs (male clips on lanyards that attach to and stay-on your bike allowing you to easily connect and disconnect from the female portion of the bag-clip leaving the clips). The Firstgear bag uses straps with plastic loops for each of the 4 tie-down points. Not quick and easy. Would have spent the extra money on the Triumph bag had I known.

Great Bag for the Buck!
This is the perfect size to store and compress m/c camping gear and clothes dry and secure while enroute (and at the campsite). Combined with great features at a great price, it's a winner.

Needs a bleed valve... and more to be useful.
I used this bag during a three-week ride from Ho Chi Minh City to Ha Noi, Vietnam, and although it kept my gear dry, it was less than easy to use.
I also used another brand bag that was easier to close and fasten. It cost a bit more, but was worth it.
The first thing this bag needs is a bleed valve to get the excess air out. It's very hard to get all the air out without it.
The second thing it needs is a better way to close the ends, e.g. with a swivel connection that allows the top to be rolled another half-turn.
I'm selling this bag and buying another one of the other brand at my local BMW dealer (since RevZilla doesn't carry it).

Good waterproof luggage features at a very good price
I bought this First Gear waterproof duffle as a Xmas gift for a friend. Compares very favorably to my Wolfman dry duffle of similar size for much less money. Would purchase again.

very good quality
looks a little rough compared to my alpinestars tank bag,
but i guess its the way a dry bag should looks,
have'nt test it in heavy rain yet... but the sealing system looks pretty good.
