Wolfman Wolf Tail Bag
This tail bag was virtually tailor-made for the KTM 1190 Adventure!
I wanted a bag that would hold tools, flat repair equipment, etc. and still have room for other stuff as needed. I didn't want to always be forced to use the aluminum side cases, as handling is definitely affected with all that weight hanging off the sides. The Wolf tail bag worked even better than I expected! On my KTM 1190 Adventure, the built-in elastic straps attach the tail bag in a matter of seconds. Not only that, but the bag stays put with no movement whatsoever. You don't even know it's there. There is plenty of room for ALL my tools, plus much more! I couldn't be happier with this bag!

This bag will haul.
I purchased a Wolfman Wolf Tail Bag for my Triumph 800XC. I wanted a way to carry rain gear, an extra sweater, a water bottle, and still have room for small purchases made along my travels. This bag will do that. Wolfman products have always impressed me with their quality, and this tail bag is no exception. The zippers are first rate, the material is stout, and the stitching appears to be tight. This is not the least expensive tail bag on the market, but it is an example of you get what you pay for. I did purchase the optional rain cover to go with this tail bag (it would be nice if Wolfman included it with the bag), but I have not yet needed to use it.

Great value in a tail bag
This, like all Wolfman gear I have experienced, is of top notch quality and a breeze to install. They thought out very well the details of the bag, its size and compartment configurations. Can't think of anything I'd do differently on this bag. On my Suzuki DR650 I have this mounted to a Pro Moto Billet rack.
A definite recommendation!

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.
