OGIO Tail Bag
Should include better mounting
I love the look and quality of the bag. I used a key ring under the seat to connect all four straps together and then have them run up to on top of the seat to connect to the bag. The key ring I had was pretty small and I wish they would just include a way to connect all four straps together under the bike

Great Bag for the Price
I purchased this bag so I could get away from wearing a back pack. After a few days of commuting to work I find this to be a good choice. It has plenty of room to hold everything needed, lunch, bottle of pop, morning paper, etc.. with some room to spare. The bag is constructed well, was a snap to install, and is easy to remove and reinstall. The only ding I can come up with is that it has no shoulder strap, but I knew that when I bought it.

Remarkably good value bag in Goldilocks size
I'm about as smart as the average bear, but I have to admit that I was a bit perplexed by this bag when it first arrived. It comes with a strange array of straps, loops and clips, none of them appearing to attach to anything specific, and no installation instructions or hardware to be found.
After puzzling on this for a while, I came up with my own solution that I think is both elegant and functional. Essentially, I wrapped the loop ends of the straps over my seat, took a mid-sized key ring and hooked all four loop ends to it under the seat in an "X" pattern. This allows you to pull the straps tight against each other and, as a result, against the seat which keeps the bag locked nicely in place. The little elastic loops let you tuck the ends of the straps neatly under the seat resulting in a nice, low-profile, nearly "strapless" install.
This may be exactly what Ogio intended, but without any instructions to speak of, I'm going to take full credit for the idea. ;)
Once installed, this bag is "just right." Not too big and not too small, it's a great size for commuting and even a one- or two-night trip somewhere. The expansion zipper is great, the integrated rain cover is useful, the clips that allow the bag to be removed are appreciated, and the underpad helps protect both seat and bike. All this at a great price.
Well-done, Ogio, but include some instructions and a mounting ring next time, will you?!

Not recommended for 2015 Honda CBR300
Although the bag itself seems to be good quality, trying to figure out how to attach the straps to my motorcycle was a big hassle and as a result I find that I rarely want to go through the trouble of putting it on. I'm not sure if the official Honda bag is any better since I haven't used that one.

I love this bag. I can fit a foam takeout container in it. I can fit two 4-packs of 18oz. beer cans. I packed clothes for a two day visit to my folks place. Plus it's easy to take on and off my bike and haul with me if needed.
