Wolfman Mini Beta Plus Rear Bag
Worked well for me on a 4 day trip.
I bought these for my DR 650. Although they do limit your ability to move around on the seat, they are very functional. They also give you some back support for long days. Using these and a wolf pack I was able to carry tools and others necessities for a 4 day trip. They also come in handy for running errands at home.

Great value in a top bag.
I chose this bag to supplement a set of soft panniers on a mid size DS. Very well constructed, it has plenty of room. I like the way the bag is separated into several compartments. It makes it easy to organize items. It is also easy to install and remove.

Seriously good bag
I ride a BMW F800S and got the mini. The non-mini would probably fit better per the measurements but I wanted low profile and it works nicely.
Installation is very easy. I don't find the bag needs to be filled to be on the bike. I haven't noticed any flapping when the bag is empty and secured well.
My only criticism would be that the rain guards that surround each zipper are a bit stiff and make it difficult to get the zippers all the way open.

Great little bag
I have a dr200se and didn't want to buy an aftermarket rack to carry luggage so I bought this bag. It is very durable I've ruffed it up a little and there is no sign of wear on the fabric. Haven't tested it in rain yet but by the looks of the fabric it will hold its own for a while. When packed right it doesn't touch my exhaust and is sturdy, as in it doesn't budge when the straps are cranked down. It's 30 liters so I can fit most things for a few days in it. There are tons of compression straps and two spots you could strap other duffles to if needed. For the price i am STOKED on this bag!

Great soft bag
Great soft bag for the money. Quality construction. Fits my 06 KLX250S very well. Allows you to securely carry quite a bit of gear on your dual sport or dirt bike.

After having this bag out on two extended trips now, I can give an informed review. I’m very satisfied with it and think, after several other configurations of duffels and roll closure dry bags, this is the bag I’ve been looking for! I use it in combination with the Explorer Lite tank bag as a luggage system. In terms of its construction, it seems rock solidly built of quality materials. It’s on and off the bike very quickly and easily with a “three-point” attachment system. It has a conventional carrying handle on top that is surprisingly useful to transport it from place to place. There is also a pair of straps that I use to lash my tent and camp chair aft of the bag (presumably this is meant for other Wolfman components).
The main compartment and two smaller side compartments provide more than enough room for 3-4 days worth of clothes, sleeping bag and pad, pillow, a small daypack, and other miscellaneous items. As stated, it’s not water-proof, but is certainly resistant to a light short duration shower or splash. Interestingly, I rode with it uncovered for about three hours in steady rain, and water just barely seeped in the two side compartments. So, I will need to purchase the accompanying rain cover. On balance, I’m very happy with it!

Does exactly what it says
I go to the gym frequently on my bike, and was getting tired of cargo-netting my gym bag to the back of my bike. The Wolfman Mini Beta Plus (there is also a larger version) is essentially a duffel bag that has attached straps that allow you to strap it securely to the back of your seat, without the need for a cargo net or bungee cords. The bag itself seems pretty durable. The zippers are a little hard to pull--not sure if they're YKK or not, but they don't look like they'll break down any time soon. Getting the bag on and off is pretty easy--the bag is pre-curved to fit over the back of your seat. Loop one side strap around a frame member on each side and cinch it tight, then loop the rear strap around the back.
Easy on/off the bike
Zippers hard to open at times
Expensive for what it is (a duffle bag with attached straps)
When taken off the bike, there are lots of straps running everywhere--a little messy/untidy.
