Wolfman Wolf Tail Bag
Anything from Wolfman is great!
I usually use a tank bag, but was planning some dirt time with my Tenere and the tank bag always feels in the way, so I decided to try the tail bag. As with other Wolfman products I have purchased in the past, it will probably out last me. Incredibly sturdy and easy to use. The zippers got hard to use when things got really dusty, but a little carmex fixed that. (I'm sure there is something better to use).

Lot's of Room
This bag holds more than expected. I use it regularly when going on overnight trips. Really like the additional side pockets for quick access to commonly used items.

The bag itself is fantastic but I'm not a fan of the attachment system. I would prefer the buckles of the other bags. Super high quality bag though.

Wolfman Quality, great little bag
This is a great tail bag for day trips or potentially a very short overnight. It is bigger than it appears in photos and holds plenty for a day on/off road. Bad is not advertised as waterproof, but i did get caught in the rain w/o a cover, and it did a good job of keeping contents dry, which speaks to the quality of Wolfman materials. I have had several Wolfman products over the past few years and all have held up well - expect the same from this bag.
1 star marked off for mounting - the bag has bungy cord style mounts (heavy duty), but i would prefer adjustable straps - would just make me feel more comfortable.

More room than you think!
Picked up one of these to carry on long day rides on my ADV bike. Its been fantastic!
I can fit my tools, spare front and rear tubes, tire irons, bead breaker, small role of duct-tape, moto-pump, spare gloves, big bottle of water, and even a full size MRE!
I was a bit concerned about the attachment straps being bungie cords which I feel allows too much movement of the bag. But surprisingly they kept the load in the exact same place even riding over washboard or rocky terrain.
My only complain is a rain cover is extra. Most other brands such as cortech comes with one included in the price.

Perfect size tail bag for day or overnight rides - fits more than you'd think
Just the right size for a set of tire irons and tube, all the tools your bike may need and various other items to keep your bike on the road, plus some water and a change of clothes for an overnighter. Very sturdy construction and when pulled tight, the elastic straps keep the bag from moving around even when heavily leaded. Great bag, highly recommended.

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.
