Impressive Durability/Performance, especially considering low cost
This was the first saddlebags I bought for my new bike, and the volume the specs specified seemed more than adequate to suit my purposes.

Pro: The good news is that this is indeed true, and the finish, the look and how easily you can strap it on and off does make it impressively versatile. It is reasonably waterproof and roomy. The top loading (unlike usual side loading) makes it easy to load especially when in a parking lot outside a store. And while riding, despite the con I mention below, I've found it quite stable.

Con: Though I carp here, I suspect this is true of all saddlebags, so it's not all that bad. For all the volume it provides, if one plans to do anything but stuff it will rolled socks and Tee shirts - I went Grocery shopping a few times, it starts flowering/spreading out in the center when you load either end to about 7-8 lbs. Once the zipper is closed, it tends to maintain its shape more or less, but you can still see it bulging out in the center. I doubt either bag can take more than 10 lbs regularly and/or for long durations.

Bottom Line: I listed my frustrations above only to present the whole view, but for the price you pay, and the versatility it brings in terms of taking your bike even for shopping, I'd give it an extra star if I could.

Good bags, good size, but watch out for rain.
These bags are perfect for riding two up on my 09 650 Vstrom. They don’t interfere with the passengers seat space or footpeg access. They are well made and big enough for a weekend trip. The only drawback is they don’t come with rain covers and since they load from the zippered top, there is a good chance that they will end up with water inside. Large Ziploc bags would be a must for the contents inside. All in all, good deal, good company to order from.

Great bags, but not sure how they will stand test of time
Well I have had these for about 3 weeks now and several of the stitched seams between the bags and the straps are looking like they may pull apart.

Bags do provide a great amount of storage, and overall fit and finish is great. One big problem is that they do not lock.

NOt bad for beginners
Although it has nice amount of space and very easy to install i find that i noticed there are strain points along the stitching and the fact that its not water proof just make it difficult in humid climates. also to be aware of is that on some of the motorcycles (like my kawasaki ninja 2011) the bags have a tendency to cover up my turning lights so i have to manipulate the protective pads to not cover them. other then that not a bad price and they do look nice on the bike :)

Lots of capacity, great price
I was surprised by how much stuff these bags hold. They look great on the bike and were easy to mount. I have a Givi hard case on the back, so I guess the supports for that help keep the bags from looking droopy.

Only complaint is that they are definitely not weatherproof, but I knew that going in. Only have had them a couple of months, so I can comment on durability, the zippers worry me the most.

Decent just stay well under 100mph
First had these on my Aprilia dorsoduro and they did their job but I ziptied the clips because they had to be pulled quite tight to fit the bike. I also had to keep my speed in check because of the fear of the stitching or clips breaking. I'm glad I did because I also mounted them on my super tenere (on hard bag mounts) and one of the straps broke when aggressively passing at around 100mph. They get the job done but should be more durable for 100 bucks

They ripped after 3 months
i bought these in august and they worked just fine until my last trip. the seams on one ripped and i lost all my stuff on the road. poorly made, not a bad idea but i guess i didn't know when i bought them they would rip open and be completely useless after a mere 3 months. DON'T BUY YOU'LL BE SORRY.

The Nelson Rigg bags are a great value. I like these because they're spacious and they retain their shape even while empty. I ride a 2013 ZX-14R with stock pipes, and these bags fit right over the cans.

What is the maximum weight I can put in each side?
A shopper on Aug 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure I have a good answer to that one. There are a lot of variables. For example, depending on how much your bags are supported by the sides of youf bike (e.g., maybe you have a frame bar, a wide seat or a bag supporter) ... then you can probably load them up without the bags interfering with your pipes or rear wheel. Depends on how bumpy your roads are too. The heavier the bags, the more they'll tug and pull with each bump. Whatever load you start with, test ride it a few miles on different roads, speeds, and turns before you commit to a long ride with full bags.
