Chase Harper Tail Bag
Good tail bag
I really like the Chase Harper Tail Bag. The only "negative" I would bring up is that the knots in the bungee cords that came from the factory weren't the greatest and after moving things around, adjusting things, etc. two of them came loose.
It's not a big deal as you can redo the knots, but when you redo them, you realize why they were not that great from the factory. The bungee cords don't like to make good knots. However, with some work and determination, I made some good ones that have held perfectly,
Aside from this one relatively little thing, the bag is great!

Good bag, but watch the bungees
Overall this is a good bag at the price point. Only problem I've had is with the bungees. There are four bungees tied to nylon loops inside the bottom zippered compartment. After a few hundred miles of riding, one of them came untied. I could not re-tie it as secure as the other three, so I removed all four and just created my own bungee system threaded through the bottom.
A plus of this tail bag is that a nylon messenger bag (e.g. Sportsac hobo) can be folded and tucked inside the bungee compartment, where I can pull it out for shopping trips.

Excellent size, shape and overall design for a compact utility bag for convenience on short trips.
I have a 2013 Ducati Multistrada S Touring and I was searching for a compact utility bag to carry a small 6 can size cooler plus my helmet bag, visor cleaner & rag and suchlike for rides where I don't have my wife along on pillion when I use my top case. The Chase Harper Trail Bag was the one I chose and it has proven to be an excellent choice for these needs. It is also streamlined and on a high performance bike like the Multustrsda I feel no handling effects such as I encounter with the top case at high speeds without my pillion along. The fitting to the bike with the 4 built in bungees is excellent.I recommend it highly.

Durable, practicle and easy to maintain.
This seat bag offers room, style and durability. Price is good for this product as well as its' ease of installation. Bungee cords are easily stored in zippered compartment under the bag for portability. I like it, so will you.

Nice but could be bigger
The dimensions as specified in the Q&A section for this product are correct.. Got it for runs to the gym. Following is the limit of what I can get in it: one pair size 12 athletic shoes, one pair shower flip flops, one pair warm up pants, muscle shirt, one pair crew length athletic socks, one pair boxer briefs, one pair swim trunks (boxer/board type), pair of full coverage swim goggles in carrying case, anti-perspirant (3 .5 oz stick type), and padlock for the gym locker.
Took a black permanent marker and colored in the Chase Harper logos for a subdued look..
It mounts to my Ducati Multistrada without touching any of the body panels-- the bungee hooks can be secured to the grab rail.

Excellent features, a bit small.
The fact that this bag comes off the seat of the bike and becomes a backpack is great. I am using it on a cross country trip and keep my immediately necessary motel things in it. That way as I stop I can take in just what I need without digging through my saddle bags.

Looks nice and works well
this bag is very versatile. can be used on the rear of the bike, on the tank, or as a backpack. bungees work great to hold it on.
Could be a tiny bit bigger. Can't fit my 13" laptop in in.
