Firstgear Torrent Duffle Bag
a well-made, good-looking, waterproof bag
I'm pretty stoked about getting this bag for Christmas. It's the exact size I needed, it's waterproof and the colors are right for my bike (a black Bonneville.) I like the way it opens up to give easy access inside and the way it rolls down to compress extra air in the bag and give a bombproof seal from rainy weather. The rubbery material the bag is made of appears to be pliable and tough and the straps well-placed and secure. It's a well-made bag that will serve me not only on the bike but off the bike as well. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

Perfect for the task
This bag survived 2000 miles of the American Legion Legacy Run in August in perfect condition, including 2 days of torrential rains in which the contents were kept completely dry. One of the best purchases I have ever made.

70 liter fits perfect across back seat.
Purchased the 70L for a 7 day ride through WA and OR. Plenty of room and totally water proof. I like the extra straps and rings built onto the outside of the bag. When it warms up and you need to shed you jacket or base layers you can just strap them to the outside of the bag, without having to worry about opening it or your side bags. My only complaint is that it doesn't have any internal pockets or compartments. If your just hoteling it, get the 40L......but if your tent camping for more than 3-4 days, get the 70L. Great bag for the money.

Good quality for a good price
I bought this for an overnight trip across the state. Is exactly what I needed. It has plenty of d rings for strapping it down to the bike. Did not test how waterproof it is yet but appears to seal very well. I would recommend this product.

The most bang for the buck waterproof bag there is.
Bought the 70 liter. Perfect size. Well thought out. Tons of ways to mount to the bike. D-rings on the bottom could have been larger but there are lots of options. Works great on my 2012. Bmw r12000gs adventure.

Tough enough to handle the Pacific Northwest!!!
Rode over 3,000 miles on a motorcycle trip through the Pacific northwest in all kinds of inclement weather. The bag performed remarkably and was very versatile. In fact, it is now my favorite piece of gear. I manhandled it frequently and the bag was as tough as nails and completely waterproof as evidenced by me being forced to use it as in impromptu ice chest. Top recommendation.

This is the best bang for the buck. When I received this bag I was shocked at how awesome it is. My friends have simar bags from other high end companyies that they paid double for and they are exactly the same. Save your money and buy these bags

25 day trip to Alaska with rain and some hail and this worked perfectly. Well designed top-loading style is far better that end loading bags for ease of access.
