Saddlemen BR4100 Dresser Back Seat Bag
great bag, not water resistant tho
Bought the bag and left on a 3900 mile round trip out west. Excellent size, I could pick up my loaded back without my husband's help. Even added a roll bag on top with the straps built in. Lots of places to tie it down. However it's not very water resistant. We were caught in a thunderstorm and some of my clothes and my laptop got wet. I even used a rain cover from a previous bag and it still leaked. My husband's bag did not leak, so it may be luck of the draw. Despite the water, I still would highly recommend this bag. Fit both my husband's Victory and my Stryker.

Performed very well; secondary purpose as back rest was very welcome fringe benefit.
Rode my Can-Am from upstate NY to New Orleans for National Elks Convention. Shipped formal wear but carried all other items on bike & in this seat bag. Carried enough gear for 12 days before doing laundry. By bike standards, the bag is cavernous, held its shape well and even though heavy, could be carried by handle on lid. I don't know how rain/water resistant it really is because in the course of the ride, we never got more than spritzed on. Durability is still a question mark but so far, so good. If you're going far and don't need your back seat, (touring models only) I highly recommend this.

Great bag for touring and backrest
I just got this bag. I am very happy with the bag, and I plan on buying the barrel bag that goes with it just for ease-of-use. I really believe it's well worth the purchase, it does great as a back rest and it has lots of storage. I put it on a victory vision tour model and it fits great victory has a bag just like it for $250 this bag was $150 well worth the price

Perfect Accessory for that long trip
I went on a 3050 mile road trip through a variety of conditions from 115 degree heat to hail and wind and rain. The bag hooks to the bike many different ways, about the only thing missing is a rain cover. The insulated pockets on the front side are good for keeping things cool, the back pocket is kind of a waste for my bike 04 road glide as the trunk is in the way but overall it is an excellent piece of kit.

Lots of room
This is a great bag, you have to get creative on how to attach the selection of straps depending on your bike. Also I have an Ultra Classic and it rubs on the speaker cover of the rear speakers making scuff marks.

Holds all you stuff for a week.
I have owned this bag for 5 years. Excellent bad to hold a weeks worth of clothing. I have 2008 harley ultra classic. Comes with 3 straps to secure to bike plus addition strap around the bottom of the bag to secure around the seat/tour pack rails. The bag is rigid but gives a little when over stuffing. Missing a rain cover. I put a green leaf bag over it when in rain conditions. Thought it might be water resistant, still need a bag to secure my things stay dry. Highly recommend for any tour rider.

I used this bag on the backseat of my Vstar 950 Tourer and just loved the storage space. Also, it was nice being able to use it as a backrest (bag has to be really full to do this).

Great Back Seat Bag
Been looking for a while for a travel bag that would fit behind the driver's seat. Because of the contour of the passenger seat and the armrests, it was difficult to find a roll bag or other luggage that fit properly behind me. Had a couple of good bags to try but none performed to my satisfaction. Because of the BR4100 unique "U" shape, it fit perfectly on my Goldwing. With the front indentation, it even allowed my driver backrest to fit without obstruction. No backrest? No problem - the hard shell BR4100 retains its shape even without being packed and provides a fairly nice backrest on its own. The bag appears rugged and should hold up on many sojourns although I haven't had the opportunity to test it yet on any long runs. My only complaint -- no rain cover available, period. The bag is rated as 'weather resistant' and we all know what that means. Heavy rains = wet interior. Oh, well, just ordered a dry bag that will keep the interior load safe just in case.
