Saddlemen BR3400 Sissy Bar Bag
Plenty of room and compartments
I had this mounted on a sissy bar rack for a 1,000 mile trip I did recently. Plenty of tie down points, and can easily carry enough gear for a weekend trip. Have not used in the rain yet. I actually stored some small tools in the rain cover compartment. It doesn't look bulky or too out of place on the bike either.

sits nicely on the back of the cruiser
It was fairly easy to install, sits solidly on the bike and fits heaps of gear inside with all the nifty sections

Lots of compartments. Some harder to access than others.
I bought this as a backrest that would hold gear instead of installing a backrest and bag for a Spyder RT Roadster. The seat on the RT is wider than most two wheeled bikes so the attachment harness that goes under the seat is a bit lacking but will still work.
Fueling the Spyder is a bit tricky but you won't have to remove the bag to do it. That's why I went with this bag.
It took a while for the bag to conform to the passenger seating area but it works great now!

Great bag, lots of room
I purchased this bag late in the spring to use for the 600+ mile ride from VA to NH for bike week in Laconia. It mounted easily on my Vulcan using the hardware that connects under the saddle. The sissy-bar sleeve and the four straps connecting to the D-rings on the saddle hardware make for a very sturdy set up - you could fill this thing with lead weights and it would still hang on! Solid connections, well-built.
Sadly, it rained practically the whole trip, including the entire ride up through WV, PA and NY. The rain cover worked well enough for the top part of the pack, and really would probably have been fine if not for the fact that it was really pouring down rain for 500 miles. However, the bottom part of the bag, and a bunch of my clothes inside DID get wet. Also the D-rings rusted pretty quickly - not that big a deal, but I was surprised that they weren't made of stainless. After the first day of riding, I took everything apart in my hotel room and simply put everything that was going to be at the bottom of the bag in a trash bag. Problem solved. I'll hit the whole thing with some camp-dri, and it should be ok for the next rainy ride.
Overall, very good set up.

Plenty of storage space
This great bag has heaps of expandable storage space in the numerous compartments. Great little area for storing a jacket if things get too warm while travelling. Good rain protection with the built in rain cover. Overall more than adequate storage for a decent trip

Great touring bag!
I looked at many different touring bags before I settled on this one and it was worth the wait! Lots of D-Rings to allow for many options when it comes to strapping it to the bike! Very spacious on the inside with lots of extending pockets! Saddlemen thought of everything when the designed this one! ...and thank you Revzilla for a great transaction!

Amazing high quality bag
Bought this bag for a Star Stratoliner to fit on luggage rack attached to sissy bar. Needed a place to store helmet when off the bike and it works perfect. I have a Shoei full face helmet size large and it easily fits in main compartment. Several compartments can be locked with mini padlocks including the main area storing helmet. Solid construction with heavy duty zippers give this bag a high quality look and feel. Bag hangs off back of luggage rack about 3 inches due to the depth but is still very well secured to sissy bar and rack. The angled design of main zipper and top of bag make the bag look less boxy and flows wells with the Stratoliner sleek lines. I replaced a very tall, boxy and ugly Tourmaster touring bag with this Saddlemen and am very pleased. Highly recommend this bag.
