Wolfman Wolf Tail Bag
Nice tailbag, but could be improved
I already owned a Wolfman Peak Tailbag that I use on my DRZ-400 and love it. The Peak Tailbag is fine for any trail ride, but too small to use as a commuter bag. I saw this Wolf Tailbag and bought it. Unlike the Peak Tailbag, which uses metal hooks and straps to secure the bag, the Wolf Tailbag only offers bungee cords. The bungee cords work well enough I suppose, but you really have to draw them tight to keep the bag from flopping around on the rack. I like the secure mount of the metal hooks and straps better. Also, while the Wolf Tailbag is bigger, it is on the edge of too small for a commuter bag. If I stuff my jacket liner and rain pants into the bag, the bag is pretty much full. For some people that might be all they need. For me, I wish the bag was about 3" bigger in every dimension.
Having said that, this bag is typical of Wolfman's excellent quality and durability, and the side pockets are extra-large - big enough to store an extra set of goggles.

Exactly What I Was Looking For
This is a very well constructed, sturdy bag. The adjustable bungee straps make it very easy to install. Between the bungees and the non-slip bottom, this thing really stays in place, even when loaded. The mesh pocket at the front is perfect for keeping the rain cover (not included, unfortunately). The other pockets are roomy and make it easy to get to things that you need. I am very pleased with the bag.

Holds most everything
Unless I want to take another jacket with me for a day ride, this bag fits most everything I would need. I have my spare shield, spare gloves and rain suit stuffed in here. Also have assorted tools and kit utilizing the side pockets. If I need to take my liners out, I imagine I will be able to stuff them in there and may not even have to expand the bag. My biggest concern is finding a rain fly for this bag. It does not come with one. That said, it was easily installable (5 minutes) and secure at speed. AS usual, ordering from Revzilla is easy and they have yet to not meet expectations.

Just what you need
Wonderful construction. Well designed and spacious and has been very useful on my bike. Too bad for this price you have to get and accessory rain cover, an obvious need. The usual quick shipping from Revzilla

Nice tail bag
I had looked at a few more brands to be used on our Kawasaki Concours 14 and decided on this model. Size is realy nice and the way you can easily shorten the built in bungee straps is a great idea. Kind of wished it came with a rain cover just in case but still worth the cost. Revzilla is great as always.

Great space, lots of pockets
Love the bag. Fits a helmet perfectly (and I'm XL!) and it has several pockets that you can use to store gloves, water, etc.

Perfect bag for the rack of my Tenere. I can still throw a leg over without it problems

Nice size bag for the Bonneville tail rack.
The Wolf bag is excellent quality with ample room for a few days gear. It does have to extend over the grab rail unless you mount it sideways. It works great to hold goods from that run to the grocery store or just the every day things you need for a day trip. Mounting and dismounting is easy with the integral straps and hooks.
