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 March 25, 2014
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. March 6, 2014
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. February 11, 2014
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. September 23, 2013
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. August 27, 2013
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.

William F: The Nelson Rigg Adventure Dry Bag folds over and attaches with buckles, so there is no zipper to lock. Dry bags, once secure, are hard to get into, but I don't know of a way to lock them other than a cable around the bag, which would keep anyone from unfolding it and getting in. I think the bigger risk would be someone removing the whole bag from the bike, so a cable lock is definitely a good idea. Oct 28, 2013

Roger E: There is not a way to lock this bag. There are no zippers or metal parts on the bag on which to fasten a lock, nor can you lock the bag to your bike. The only way I can think of securing it would be to own a locking cover for the entire bike.
Even if you could lock it, any thief could slice open the bag with any blade.

Charles N: There is no way to lock it securely. The bag has no zippers and locking the buckles to each other reduces the capacity to useless. You roll the bag closed and that closure is about 20" and very flexible. Oct 28, 2013

John C: I really don't think there's a way to lock it. But remember , just a couple of snaps and you can take it with you. If you roll it right a covered lock cable and lock should attach it to the bike quite well. Oct 28, 2013

Richard S: There is not a way to lock the bag. No zippers are present. If someone wanted in the bag anyway, they could cut through the material. Bag works great to defeat weather, but not thieves, unfortunately. Nov 1, 2013

jordan d: No, I wondered about that too, several hundred dollars of camping gear tied to the bike with bungee cords, you could look at buying a locking cable, like a bike lock, and place it over the bag Oct 28, 2013

A shopper asked: I have a 2010 Z1000 with a fender eliminator kit, so the rear is completely open. I could attach the bag to the frame on the front, but do you know how I could attach the bag in the rear?

Is this compatible with my bike?

timothy a: Likely not, it needs 4 attachment points to be stable, and its long enough that you would have to mount it too far forward to get the front and rear straps hooked within the length of the rear seat. The internal reinforcement is really just a thin piece of plastic or stiff cardboard in the base of the bag that stiffens it up a bit. Also, even with the rear fender still on the bike, I'd question whether that all-plastic extension is stiff enough to serve as safe rear attachment points for the bag. Think you'd be better off with something more square-shaped. Sep 16, 2013

Robert C: Hi, I have not used the bag yet, but I did mount it on my bike. I have it on the pillon seat, straddling the Jessie pannier, so that works fine. The bag comes with a fairly firm bottom and 4 fixed strap receptors/claps, one at each corner at the bottom. You have some freedom as to where or how you route the straps and than attached them to the fixed clasps. I cannot envision you bike setup, but if the bag sits on a firm substructure, the straps could all come from your rear frame into the claps, I presume. I hope this helps. Sep 18, 2013

Roger E: The straps for this bag have looped ends that can be attached to any bar or anything that it can go around given enough length. The straps could possibly go around the entire rear end each, they are rather long, but another way would be to loop the end of the straps together under the seat or under the whole seat/fender assembly. However, the latter method would not keep the bag from sliding forward without tightening all the straps very tightly. It's a great bag, it holds a boatload of stuff. I hope this helps. Roger Sep 16, 2013

Charles N: The bag attaches with nylon straps that are looped at one end. You need something that they can loop around. They are really long so you could possible put them around the license plate bracket or even around the entire tail section, but that might scuff up the finish. The bag works really well, with the give to accommodate odd sizes, but mine never looks as tidy as Rigg has it pictured. Sep 16, 2013

jordan d: I am not familiar with your bike, the bag comes with four straps to tie into your frame, it has a rigid bottom, and is @ 26 inches long. You could buy additional straps to tie it on if you have something to tie them to, I am on a 1200 GSA Sao I have no issues with tie downs , perhaps you could tie it on with bag across the seat instead of lengthwise on the bike , good luck Sep 16, 2013

John C: Sorry,don't know how it would mount,I use mine on a H/D ultra,but I can tell you it's an excellent bag and has perfomed great in some heavy ,long downpours. Sep 17, 2013
