OGIO Tail Bag
Great medium sized tail bag.
Great tail bag. Easy to install and remove. Expandable. Rain cover included. Most importantly, huge bang for the buck!

Lot bigger than it looks but you are on your own installing....
Pros: The OGIO Tail Bag is actually a very nice bag with a surprising amount of room when zipped up and once you expanded it out completely you can fit a full size helmet like my Nolan N43Trilogy with room to spare! When not expanded it is actually quite compact.
Cons: You are pretty much left to your own devices on how to mount this sucker on your bike. No instructions or even examples are included to help you figure out a way to mount it. The straps latches are installed at an odd angle and not movable but I finally figured out a way to get it on securely but it took some extra parts, (courtesy of Kriega), to get the loops and hooks necessary to mount without 1) scratching the frame; and; 2) making sure that the bag stayed secure and wouldn't shift.

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?!
