Wolfman Ridgeline Plus Duffel Bag
Easy to use bag
Pros: The built in attachment bungee cords with hooks stash nicely in pouch on the bottom, and are simple to attach the bag to the bike. The bag can be opened and accessed easily while it remains securely attached to the bike. This is a clean setup.
Cons: The lid construction which wraps down over the edges covering the zippers is very tight fitting and makes it a bit difficult to work the zipper. This may loosen up with use.
Personally, I did not want the extra wrapping straps and handle to deal with flapping around in the breeze. I cut these off and use a couple of ROK straps to compress the bag. Now, if a shoulder strap were included, I would be all set.

expensive, but worth it!
bought this for a 3 day camping trip with my wife on the motorcycle with sidecar. amazed how much it holds! really nice made. the bungee cords and their placement are fantastic. i will use this as a bag for traveling on planes and weekend trips as well.
the plastic piece of the zipper came off when i was pulling on it hard, but its made so that you can put it back on with no problems. i always break those parts of zippers, but this is constructed to not break and reattach really easy! really impressed!

worth every penny.
Works perfectly on the back seat of my bike, and is the perfect size for a carry on at the airports. Buy the shoulder strap, it's a must. It does not come with one.

Great bag - super high quality
A great bag - super high quality appearance and construction. The zippers and fitted zipper covers are big, heavy-duty, and sturdy. It has a full-width mesh area on the inside of the lid and two exterior end pockets for the little stuff, and the bungee cords and hooks are adjustable for length. I went on my first thousand-mile trip last week and was well pleased with it. The bag didn't move at all once I secured it and is heavy enough so it doesn't flap in the breeze. Didn't get to try it in the rain yet...

Well-made, Useful Bagq
The Ridgeline is a very well-made, sturdy item. The design is stupidly simple and really useful. The bag opens wide to swallow lots of gear. It is a tad wider than I initially wanted, but it sits well on the seat of my beast (ETV 1000 Caponord) and does the job. The straps that run over the bag allow tightening it down when empty or only partly filled, and help keep it stable. I used the D rings on the bottom to attach it semi-permanently, with two of the built-in bungees to assist. So far it has performed well on grocery runs, where the wide opening allowed inserting large bags of items; and a ride in the country where it held my tools and other items, allowing me to leave the panniers at home.
I haven't tried it yet on my smaller XT 225, but it should easily mount there too.
My wife and I have had very good experiences with other Wolfman items on our bikes, and their customer service was top-notch when I recently needed a repair.
Made in the USA, good construction of good materials, with good backing/service if needed.

nice bag but overpriced
bag is good size with nice construction. Side zipper pouches are to small to be of use. Bag is waterproof only for light rain heavy downpour will get your stuff wet. Bag is overpriced like Harley stuff.

Best Bag Ever!
I just took this on a 700 mile 3 day trip. I am no light packer. I fit a ton of stuff including a hefty laptop, sneakers, clothes, electronics, extra bike gear, toiletries...and I didn't even have to expand it! I love this bag!! I even had a couple compliment it and I told them I got it on Revzilla. Shipping was speedy as always. Install was a breeze on my stock 2014 Triumph Tiger 800. Get this bag!!

Overall Great Product
Everything is great about this bag. The only problem it has is that is not 100% impermeable, if you hit a good rain chances are things on your bag will get wet so make sure you wrap them on a big trashbag to help keep it dry.
Installation can be a bit tricky depending on the amount of weight you are carrying. Other than that great bag, great price, great space.
