Wolfman Expedition Dry Saddle Bags
Great bags- multi-purpose and effective
I've used these bags for a 5-day roadtrip from San Francisco to Los Angeles as well as for a few trips to Costco. It took me quite a while the first time to get the bags onto my bike, but now that I've put them on and taken them off a few times, it's pretty easy.
Overall, I'm very happy with these bags. Just be careful about how they're situated above your tailpipe as they'll get pretty hot if they're too close.

Best Bags Ever
I have been using these bags for nearly 3 months for Adventure riding which includes primitive camping and off roading. They are AMAZING! They have held up to multiple downpours and held everything from food and camp gear to clothes and firewood. It has kept everything bone dry. Absolutely LOVE these bags!

This is exactly what i was looking for. Easy to attach, waterproof and holds what i need to take while keeping the weight down low on the bike.

These bags are a good value. These bags are just a little smaller then I pictured in my head.
Beyond that, I can not ask for any more in an adventure bag. With these I do not have to take my car anywhere but to pick up my kids!

Simply THE best ADV luggage around
I've had these Expedition bags on my old KLR, and have nothing but praise to say about them! They're 100% waterproof, can take any knock or drop thrown at them, and when packed properly can hold a crazy amount of gear.
When not in use they can be stored flat on the bike, and don't suffer from UV-fade. These were a permanent fixture on the KLR which was parked in the elements 80% of the time, and are so good they were a no-brainer for my BMW X-Challenge. They far surpassed my expectations and are ideal for those doing real-deal ADV riding.

For the money, jump on them.
It takes a few minutes to figure out all the straps. After the second time on and off, the install goes very quickly. Plenty of room for a week of clothing and your stuff will stay dry. Great bang for the buck.

goodbye hard cases
I'm glad I finally made the switch from hard panniers to soft. I have a duffel from Wolfman so I stayed with them and got these bags. They're lighter, lower profile, and I think they look better than hard boxes. The quality is great. Totally waterproof. I've read other reviews complaining about the cost and the fit. The cost is hundreds less than hard boxes and the fit can be fully adjusted. I have them mounted to a Hepco Becker rack and the fit is fine. There are plenty of similar products to this one but I recommend Wolfman because their quality has been solid in my experience and the webbing design is effective and simple - after getting used to it - and they just plain work. I should say the mounting straps are included with the saddle bags.

Lighter than aluminum, more versatile as well
I really like Wolfman products. I have their racks on my bike, so their bags were a natural choice. I also have hard panniers, but do not like to use them as they push the bike in wind and create gas guzzling drag. Even though these bags are considerably cheaper than metal cans, moto luggage is still overpriced for what it is.
These roll top rubbery/vinyl bags are durable and waterproof, but also have compression straps to hold them smaller when needed. It's a smart design.
The only drawback is the butterfly shape holder plastic sometimes gets in the way. There has to be a better way to rigidly support these bags than a piece of plastic sitting in the bottom and sides, but not firmly against the sides. If they fix this, these bags would be just perfect.
