Wolfman E-12 Enduro Saddle Bags
Heavy duty materials.
Haven't ridden many miles with it but it is built out of thick tuff material and should do its job for long time. Easy install on my DRZ400S

Perfect bags for my DRZ!
Bought them for camping off my bike. They hold a surprising amount of weight and all the d-rings give you multiple options for attaching more gear even if its not another Wolfman bag.

A good Jack of all trades set of bags
I use these on my WR250R and they now work quite well. I would imagine many people would need to customize them a bit as I did. I got a pipe heat shield from Giant Loop to keep the bag off the pipe as well as applied some sticky heat shield to a corner of the bag that was able to still touch the pipe in certain circumstances, and it has worked very well. None of that is a fault of the bags as they weren't for my bike specifically and obviously bikes are all a bit different. They hold a decent amount of gear and look right on the bike. Another good Wolfman product.

Mounted E-12 on 2008 WR250R
I had the Dirtbagz Ranger bags and mounting racks before and I didn't care for the bulky look and large foot print. When looking at these I was trying to get something tight to the bike and the needed traits streamlined, zero interferance while standing, price point. What it lacks in water proofing (easily solved with my stuff sacks I use anyways) it gains in good looks, flexibility and cool factor. It didnt' hurt that I have a boat load of other Wolfman stuff and I love their quality & attention to detail... and I'm a bit of a nerd for matching gear!
Install was easy, the instructions can help you if you can't figure it out! I mounted mine UNDER the seat and after seeing another install I'm going to make some notch cutouts in the lip under the seat to keep it in place and reduce wear points on the straps.
I took these bags on a 200mile trip during the 2013 Shenandoah 500 rally in George Washington National Forest. Very tight even over gnarley rocky stuff and rutted dirt. I never had anything come loose or shake about. GREAT compression system and easily accepted the 1L Fuel bottle on top of the left one. This was a big one for me as I didn't want my 2gal rotopax on the rear rack off road. 1L will get you 10-15 miles on these little bikes and you shouldn't ever need more on recreational runs. Perfect matchup with the E-12, you could even add a 2nd one on the right with yoru water bottle or more fuel etc... I've been thinking of putting a tool tube on the right one to keep the contents of my fender bag in.
Heat issues** If you have a Wr250R you are worried that this will burn on the exhaust it does not. I ran it all weekend at the rally mounted with the right bag on the exhaust shield as pictured. If you have the FMF or another aftermarket that does not use the stock shield you can make it work by drawing them far enough forward if you mount under seat but then it's getting close to your legs. I've seen it done by shifting forward and by using a custom bracket to hold the bag up.

Another fine product from Wolfman
Theses E-12's replace an older set of E-10''s from around 2009. I was wanting to move my tool kit lower and still have room for tubes , tire spoons and other trail repair kit items . Size of the E-12's is perfect and all the stuff they carry leave room in the wolf tail pack for other gear I strip off as the day gets hotter during rides. Used these in Cloudcroft NW for 4 days of trail riding and they held up to the task. The new buckles to strap the back down work great and are easy to install/ remove the bags. Only issue is the pull tab strings do come out of the finger tab...this happens on all of my other Wolf bags as well...zip ties make good replacements :-)

Frameless for enduro's are relativly limited. You can go giant loop or wolfman or some other german company. Least those are the ones I know off. The day I got these bags The pull cord on the zipper tabs broke on two of them. I wrapped bailing wire on them instead of the chinsy thing they had and didn't really care. After two months and 7k miles of enduroing from NH to AK they are totally trashed and falling apart. They aren't even remotely water proof. And a couple of the straps broke. While they stay on the bike they do a flop a bit Also the shape of them is a little awkward, Its hard to maximize the space. Honestly think they could have come up with a much better product.
The only reason I said I'd recommend this product is there isnt much else out there for frameless saddlebags.

Solid, good size bag
I'd have given it an excellent throughout but it does not fit my BMW F650GS out of the box. Straps are too short and the beemer doesn't have a "fender" in the rear to utilize the cool strapage. I made it work rather well buying longer webbing for the top 2 and a single piece for the rear (it fits inbetween the taillight and the luggage rack. I also added some quick release buckles for the top since I'm taking it off often. Now its sweet.

A bit expensive
These bags are well made and fit my KLX250s very well. To me they seem a bit overpriced for what you get, but that seems to be the case with all motorcycle luggage and accessories. This was cheaper and larger than the Giant Loop Mojave which I was also considering, and probably the least expensive way to get bags on a dirt bike styled bike that actually look like they belong there. Still going to add a rack system for more storage options in the future.
