Tour Master Coaster SL Saddlebags
Less than expected quality
I originally ordered the bags in large, but they were too small for my needs, so I ordered the XL. Super easy to install, and the bags seemed like they were going to be good enough for what I wanted, something to throw my tools into for work and pack up for the road trips. Two weeks after installing them, I removed the bags so I could clean the bike and I noticed that the stitching on one of the bags is coming undone in a couple of places. Really bummed as I've had a hard time finding bags for my Softail. I decided to send the bags back. Wish I could recommend them, as they seemed like they'd be durable. Maybe I just got a bad set.

solid throw over saddlebags
good bags and great price. I bought these bags for my harley street 750. Ordered the medium size bags which fit well, the large would probably be to big for my bike. You can choose to throw the bags over or install under the seat, either way you will still want to use the included snaps to help secure to bike. I tried installing both ways, under the seat and just throwing it over. If you install under the seat it is a little more solid in placement on the bike but you still need the attached straps to help secure to bike. The zippers are a plus if you decide to install under the seat, but then you have 2 bags to carry. If you throw the bag over the seat and secure it only with the straps it is still sturdy enough and when you need to take the bags with you, you can just take the whole thing. I ended up just throwing it over and using the straps to secure to bike, its not going anywhere and for me it is much easier to just grab the saddlebags. If you have a street 750 you don't have to take the whole seat off just undo the screw in the back and lift the seat up a little and slide the bag under. Storage is subjective, i needed it to carry a few tools as well as maybe some over-pants and a sack lunch or have some room to put some small items from the store.

Love my new bags...
The bags look sharp and were easy to install. I love the zippers versus to buckles/snaps I used to have. The snaps were a pain to deal with. Short of lockable bags, these are awesome.

Very nice small set of bags
I put these bags on my daughters Honda 250 Rebel. Very easy to install. Just enough room for her to carry daily stuff. She even put the rain gear in with the prediction of rain.

Сompact and quite well done saddlebags for everyday driving.
Bought these saddlebags for Vince&Hines Short Shots exhaust. Saddlebags that I had before, I burned exhaust, as they hung down too low. What is offered for Harley Sportster more like a fashion bag, which can put only a credit card and a bandanna.
Just say: Tour Master Coaster quite narrow, and they will not fit a lot of things, but for the city and a small travel missing: a second set of clothes, raincoat, tools, spare shoes, and other useful things like lock on the disk, wires run, first aid kits are placed without any problems. Material of sufficient quality.
Don't particularly like that between a bag attached with Velcro. Yes, keep firmly, but additional fastening in the shape of a belt or lacing would not hurt. Also bags are attached to the frame using additional fasteners. Included are waterproof cases that really save from the rain.
In the medium-sized motorcycle looks strictly and aesthetically pleasing. There is also a lack of extra pockets: inside the grid only with zip-lock. No protection from thieves like lock or fastenings padlock is not, and this is definitely a minus, although the bags are very easy to remove and is conveniently transferred.
Summary: compact and quite well done saddlebags for everyday driving.

Best product for the money.
We installed two sets of bags on Burgman 650s. They look and work great. We had to modify the velcro straps and added eye bolts to the bike to fasten the bags tight to the body. No scratches on the paint.
A little ingenuity and we solved the saddle bag problem for Burgmans.
