Firstgear Torrent Duffle Bag
Great bag, great value
Just got back from an 8k mile trip to Alaska and back. Used this bag to carry all my camping gear. Did just what it was supposed to do and did it well. Bag held up well over 5 weeks, no issues. Ultimate durability remains to be seen but so far so good. We didn't get a whole lot of rain but what we did get did not get inside the bag.
My only complaint would be that the straps that circle the bag are a tad short but then I had the bag completely over-stuffed so if you fill it normally it shouldn't be an issue.

Perfect size, waterproof, lots of places to strap down
Bag seems to be just the right size to put your riding jacket in when the temps get to hot, plus plenty of room for other things too. Plenty of loops to strap to. Great design for waterproofing the bag.should be totally water tight. Getting ready for a ride from CA. To Colorado, should be fun, and I'm glad I got this bag to help carry all my gear . Great Bag!!!

Great Water Proof bag, and the price is right
This is a great bag and has the features of more expensive bags. I used it on my last trip of 1000 miles and most of it was in the rain and it held up great and cleaned up easy after the ride. I would recommend this to a friend. Yes.

Very roomy bag and easy to install
I can fit everything I need on a weekend trip with room to spare, very tough looking, though time will tell the truth. Haven't tested in the rain but it looks that rolling it to close it no drop will leake. Absolutely bang for the buck

Great bag, if you're not going to strap it.
The bag is really good. The material seems durable, waterproof, and overall quality seems great.
The dealbreaker is with the straps, which feel cheap as soon as you touch them. After one weekend at Death Valley, one of the strapping points completely tore off the bag, leaving me with only three straps to secure the bag. I made it back fine, but I was really unpleasantly surprised.
This small detail renders the bag unusable, unless you don't need to strap it using the mounting points.
An otherwise splendid product, but I'd pay extra money to have the exact 70L bag I bought with wider and sturdier strapping points.
If I were extra picky, I'd also ask for something other than D rings to strap it down. I'd pay more for this too.
In short, if you don't want to use the supplied strapping points and straps, this is the best bag I've had. If you do expect to mount the bag using the supplied strapping points, as logic would suggest, seek elsewhere.
Revzilla, as usual, is taking care of me. I'm really happy with their response and it is the reason why I keep coming back to buy from them.

What I expected.
I did a ton of research before I made this purchase. The bags construction looks good and waterproof; which was my main feature I was looking for. Could it be a little bigger, yes, but this was the biggest bag Firstgear makes. My really only complaint is the how the shoulder strap connects to the bag. The connection point allows the strap to slide while carrying. The bags handle will eventually fray and wear out. I would have liked to see a hard-plastic loop like regular duffel bags have. Revzilla was super fast in shipping.

Didn't last the first trip
I bought the 70L version of this bag to use on long trips, as I'm planning a cross-country trip this summer. When I first recieved it, I loved the design, a little smaller than I was hoping. I made it work though. I stuffed it full and took it on an 800 mile trip to the outer banks, NC. During the trip it was terriffic. I loved not having to worry about my gear getting soaked and being able to stuff everything in there that I wouldnt need for the day. Once I got on the road, I realized how much stuff I could actually put inside. It was quite surprising! Although, 3/4 of the way into the trip I noticed one of the tie down loops was starting to rip away from the bag. I was shocked... I mean I was pulling on them pretty tight to make sure the bag was snug, but shouldn't I be able to do that? I was really disappointed with the bag after that. I'll see if I can return the bag or even fix it myself.
Up until that point, I would've recommended the bag to anyone. But starting to tear with 400 miles of use put a bad taste in my mouth. Just wish it was more durable.

Excellent value for a top loading drybag
I use this on my KTM 350 for longer rides (I like to explore/camp) The bag is easy to access and is very well made for the price. It comes with mounting straps and is impervious to the elements. I don't think you'll find a better bag for the money.
