Saddlemen TS3200DE Deluxe Cruiser Tail Bag
If you don't need Saddlebags, this is the way to go
I've used this bag on a few long distance rides on my Victory Hammer. It held more than what I needed for week long trips. I was concerned about the clips that came with the bag to tie it down to the bike. After surviving through some serious high winds across Utah and California (60-70 mph gusts), I feel confident in the hold the straps have on the bag. The zip off back pack was also convenient but the stitching holding the straps on started to fail after only a week of use. Also a separate waterproof bag/cover works but does not protect everything in the bag from the rain.
I highly recommend this bag for anyone who likes to head out for a week long trip every once and a while but doesn't want to install saddlebags.

Great bag but watch out!
Great roomy bag it holds all my motorcycle gear on a long trip. Watch out for the bag sides on your fenders. It rubs the paint big time when the bag is full and strapped firmly down. Make sure you put something soft between the bag sides and the fenders so you don't end up needing to repaint both sides of the fenders on your bike.

Perfect size for week-long trip
I took this bag on a 2000 mile trip and it held all my clothes and my laptop. It doesn't come with a rain cover which would have really come in handy when the sky opened up. After a pretty heavy storm, I had to hang out all the clothes that were on the bottom of the bag.
On a dry day, it's a perfect bag. Roomy enough for all my clothes, toiletries extra pair of shoes and a laptop. It holds its shape and looks pretty good on my Fat Bob. IT is pretty easy to get on and off. I used an extra webbing strap to hold it on the bike. I am sure the quick release would have held the bag just fine, but I'm a little extra cautious and I had a few extra pounds that they recommend.

Excellent bag for the money.
Bought this right before a 1000 mile road trip, and it really held up well. Lots of storage space and looks really good on the bike. A few things I didn't like:
1. It advertises a "rain proof cover." It's not a cover but a rain proof bag that goes inside the tailbag, and is no where near big enough. So pick and choose your items that must stay dry carefully.
2. It did rub the finish off of my BRAND NEW BIKE!! Like another customer said. So you may want to put something under it. Also I don't have a sissy bar, that might have made a difference. Had to buy extra straps to hold it down on the highway.

Good storage space while looking good
Great bag at a fair value. I followed the instructions and got the straps on the bag in about 2 minutes. Took it out and it literally took 1 minute to fasten the bag to my bike via passenger peg mounts. It sits nice and firm on the backseat. The bag looks like it was made for my bike but should be a universal fit for many, many bikes.
Storage space is not an issue with so many compartments, while the main compartment has plenty of space to store clothes, toiletries, a pair or two of shoes, etc. For me this bag will be good for a 2-3 night trip at the least. Structurally sound even when empty.
Very pleased with the product and would recommend it for anyone in the market for a easily detachable/carry-able tail bag or motorcycle travel gear.
RevZilla shipping was quick as usual too.

Unparalleled storage options
Great bag, fit over top my saddlebags and provided a lot of extra storage. I was able to fit my uniform and work boots along with my personal luggage for a 1000+ mile work/pleasure trip.
