It will keep your stuff dry
The bag itself is great, the buckles on the straps are plastic and have broken, I had to purchase separate straps to tie it down . It is large enough to hold tent, sleeping bag, ground cloth, sleeping mat and camp stove

Solid bag, completely waterproof, best for long journeys and wet weather
I ordered the largest bag mainly as a grocery getter/general use bag for my Seca II. There is no larger bag out there that I've found, let alone one for this low of price.
Though the first one came damaged (One of the tie down straps was un-riveted from the bag itself), Revzilla being a quality company sent me a new one immediately which was flawless. I have had the large bag since November 2013 and it has been amazing, it's been completely waterproof in all levels of rain. I once even put my wet bike cover inside it and I was able to dry the inside of the bag afterward within a few minutes with a small rag because the inside is just as water resistant as the outside.
The only issue I have with it is the process to open or close the bag. You have to unclip two buckles on the side and two on the top securing straps and then unroll the top of the bag. Which is a fine tradeoff for long distance trips but for when I need to stow something small quickly putting it in this bag isn't really an option without pulling over and stopping. It also takes some time to secure it to the bike, it would have been great if it secured via clips rather than the pull down style straps which take a little time to pull tight.
Ultimately very pleased with this bag, I'll be looking at Nelson-Rigg first next time I purchase a motorcycle bag.

Good bag, okay mounts
The bag is good for just about anyone, but not for extra me abuse. It's just a plastic material without any reinforcing members. Don't try to transport 100lbs of meat cleavers in this bag.
The mounts are okay. When I mount longways on my bike, inline with the frame, there's no straps to limit forward and rearward movement. However, they did include some mounting points, so I made it work.

Large Bag, and waterproof
I bought and used this bag as an over the pillion bag on a BMW R1200GS Rental bike on a resent trip to Croatia. The bag was large and waterproof. It strapped down nicely across the seat and was secure. It also worked well as a back rest as I rode. On the down side the shoulder strap that came with it is poor quality and broke at the airport and was useless. The bag was severally damaged by the airline in transport and I had to throw it away upon return. If you are not traveling by air, it is a great piece. Don't use it as checked baggage.

Excellent luggage; waterproof and well made.
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of materials of this bag. Very sturdy, and well designed. The strap attachments are very easy to use and are well reinforced where connected to the bag. The heavy duty appearance of the materials indicates that it will last a long time with repeated use.

An excellent bag
Waterproof, even in heavy rain. Fairly easy to mount and secure to bike. Good quality materials, excellent for the money.

this tail bag is very big
I use this bag for long trips on a tiger 800 and it is big ( I bought the large) it holds a lot more than I need. The straps hold it tight but the luggage rack on my bike isn't near big enough so can't use it with a passenger. It is dust/waterproof. And a great bag for the money.

Nelson Rigg Adventure Dry Bag
I did not want to do a review on this bag until I put it to its true test. I am out on a sixteen day off Road trip doing the Transamerica Trail. For the most part the bag was waterproof and held up pretty good doing some crashes. However the straps and mounting points seem to be a weak point. One of the rivets to the mounting buckled separated from the bag. This caused me to have to purchase additional straps to keep the bag in place. If you plan to use this bag during your commute to work on the highway it's a good option. If you plan to do some off roading with this bag you may want to look elsewhere, maybe a Wolfman product.
