Wolfman Wolf Tail Bag
Good bag, but not quite my perfect size
Tail bags come in two sizes... too big and too small. This bag borders on too big. The bag is over 24 liters when fully expanded and almost 20 liters in its smallest configuration. I'd have much preferred if the small configuration was about 15 liters. The side pockets are large.
The bag is held to your saddle or rack with bungie cords. I removed the hooks from the end of the cords (they are made to be easily removed) and permanently wrapped the cords around the rack of my DR650 by untying, routing the cords around the rack, and then retying the cords so that they were short enough to exactly fit. This works for me, but does make the bag a semi-permanent attachment. That's OK for my use.
I haven't had the bike long enough to prove its durability. I based my rating on how I expect the bag to hold up over time based upon material and apparent build quality.

Excellent bag for 1290 Super Duke
I have other Wolfman bags and this one is just as good. Quality is excellent, fits well on my sport bike and it holds a rainsuit, tools, water bottle and other items.

This is one sweet bag. Holds a ton of gear, has multiple compartments, and multiple mounting options. It has sleeves on the bottom so you can mount it with straps for a super secure fit. They should tell you this in the description. So far I've been using the bungee mounts and it works great even on some rough off road riding I've done. I bought this for my 1982 Honda XL250R to mount it to my seat because I can't find a luggage rack for this bike. This bag is a perfect fit for my application.

Durable storage for great price
Bought this to fit a lap top, change of jeans and shirt, pair of shoes. Fits that and more even without expanding. Great outside pockets for more storage. Bungee system keeps bag in place. Originally bought a Touratech bag that mounted in place of pillion seat. Storage was a lot less, no large outside pockets and almost twice the cost.

Very useaful soft tail bag
It's a Wolfman, need I say more? I own a lot of Wolfman products and they're all still going strong and serving the purpose. If a Wolfman product can serve my needs, then I don't need to look elsewhere because their satisfaction rate with me is so high.
I needed a storage unit for my Tenere that wouldn't add weight, bulk, or get in the way. Due to a passenger backrest, traditional top boxes were not usable. The Wolf Tail Bag is a perfect fit.It's 3 external, zippered storage pockets are convenient for frequently used items. The expandable main compartment is perfect for a bike cover, dry bags with cooling vests, lunch boxes, or other occasionally used items. I keep my cable/lock under the bag and routed through the mounting loops - tidy and secure.
Bear in mind that it's not waterproof, so pack accordingly. This is one of those products that makes me smile because I get so much use out of it.

More than I was expecting!
From the reviews on Revzilla, I was expecting a quality bag, but the Wolfman exceeded my expectations for the heavy weight of the fabric and all of the fittings, zippers, etc. Super easy to find attachment points with the attached shock-cord hooks and it rides rock stable. First use for a day trip I was carrying an extra shirt, ball cap, sunscreen, Teva's and 2 bottles of water. It was about half-full and I didn't really pack the bag, more just tossed stuff in. I would repurchase if I lost it.

Plenty of room!
Purchased this tailbag about 3 months ago for my CRF250L.
I have a Rotopax on my rear rack, and this Wolfman bag rides on top of it. Super easy to install. Bag has a retractable bungee at each corner with a hook on it. Fast to put on, and take off. It has 3 roomy outside pockets. Inside it has a large main compartment, and a document compartment in the top flap . Not 100% waterproof, but it has kept everything semi dry even in long downpours!
Wolfman gear is top notch! Buy it! You won't be sorry!

love the wolfman products
i have the wolfman enduro tank bag, the ridgeline plus tail bag and now this bag... i cant say enough good things about these bags and this company.. the bags are top notch... although they are not waterproof, i have not had any water get in the bags... i ride rain or shine... i commute on my little crf250l... the zippers are strong, the material is like no other bag i have owned... the bag stays in form very well even when empty... this bag is my everyday bag... its the perfect size for my rain gear, extra set of cloths, flip flops attached to top bungee, and some other odds and ends... this bag also fits on my MANRACK rack perfect... the attached bungees make install a breeze... no extra bungees needed... well maybe if you are doing some serious off roading... but all in all, i would recommend this bag... the price seams a little high, but the quality matches the price... and remember, the sweet taste of a good price will never outlast the sour taste of poor quality....
