Saddlemen R1300LXE Deluxe Roll Bag
Nice bag but not lasting well.
I got this bag as it looked to suit my needs. I fits well and is the size and style I wanted. But after only having it a very short time it is fading badly. Yes it stays on my bike and would expect it to fade and look used after a few years not a couple of months.
It got to me very quickly even though I am in New Zealand.

I purchased this bag with a larger Saddlemen bag for a recent trip. This bag was a great addition to the larger luggage. It was the perfect size for my jacket and a few bungee cords. The end compartments are nice to have to those small, frequently accessed items.
It comes with a rain cover, but it doesn't fit too well. Mine blew off somewhere on the PA Turnpike.

Answer to laptop question
The question and answer link did not work, so... In answer to the question as to whether or not you could fit a laptop in this bag, that would be a no. The opening is only 8.5" wide and even if you angle it in the shape of the bag would not be condusive to carrying a laptop... maybe a tablet. The best feature of this bag, to me, is the shape. It has a fairly rigid shape where all of my other bags tend to collapse. You could put something soft in the bag and not worry about it being crushed. The only reason I gave it less stars for ease of install is because I would have liked more hooks to attach my zip ties to...

Perfect day bag
I have tried a number of different "day" bags and each of them has missed the mark of what I was looking for. This is by far the best. I wanted something small, easy on and off the sissy bar, functional storage space for caps, extra shirts, water bottle, etc and I didn't want to pay a lot of money for it.
I rated it 5 stars on all categories except on performance where I gave it a 4 star but only because the top zipper zips open against the back pad of the sissy bar and it's a little tight with my fingers. It's really not that big of a deal for overall how good the bag is.

Small enough to be cool and large enough to be practical.
I was looking for a smaller day bag and this is just what I needed.

Love this bag
This bag looks great and is very well made. Being from north Dakota I won't get much use the rest of this year but I can'[t wait until next summer when I start traveling again. I know it will be a great addition to luggage I already have. I would recommend this bag to any serious traveler who wants a bag that not only looks very good on the back of the bike but is very useful..

This bag is great does exactly what is needed and it extends out to make multiple lengths, the only downside is I wish it came in brown to match my leather seats

Nice expansion capability
Fits nicely on my tour pack rack although I had to tape up a couple of the tie down rings as they were dangling on the tour pack and scuffing the finish.
