Firstgear Onyx Tail Bag 3.5 5 2 2
Not Durable I used the Onyx for two years, and that was too long by at least six months. The strong Arizona sun broke down the threading that secured the zippers, causing them to tear away from bag and jam with the frayed remnants. The bag also faded badly, and lost it's square shape, turning into a droopy mess when it wasn't filled with gear. The best things I can say about it is that it was cheap, easy to install securely, and held a decent quantity of stuff, but I don't recommend it for daily use. October 18, 2013
This Tail Bag is Very Versatile I've had this Tail Bag and the matching Saddlebags and they work great, with my setup. I have a 2013 KLR 650 and I put this bag on the luggage rack, using the attached bungee cords w/ plastic hooks, that don't scratch. It is expandable in almost all areas. There are straps that can be taken out of their pockets to strap things like jackets or whatever on top of the bag. There are also tie down points around the bag if you want to strap a helmet on top with a bungee net. I carry a bike cover, rain gear, 3 pairs of gloves, two disk locks, two cable locks, tools, flashlight and the two liners for my jacket, and several other things, I can't recall right now in this one bag. I only use the matching saddlebags for longer trips, like weekends or longer. On one trip my girlfriend and I stopped at a grocery store, took everything out of the main compartment of this bag and put it all into our already packed saddlebags, then filled it with food and drinks, that stayed cold for many hours. I was surprised by that! It was easy to do this because we just expanded the saddlebags to fit the extra gear, even though we already had them packed with all of our clothes for the 3 day trip. Both the Tail Bag and the matching saddlebags have reflective piping that works well. The saddlebags come with the same black bungee cords w/ plastic hooks which I use to secure the Saddlebags tightly to my side racks that cover the side covers. They are not saddlebag racks, they are racks that protect the side covers, similar to case guards, but they work great with soft luggage, holding the bags about 1 to 2 inches above the side covers and away from the heat of the muffler. The saddlebags and tail bag do not interfere w/ the turn signals and mount far enough back to not interfere w/ a passengers legs. They have great capacity yet are nice and slim and compact when not expanded. Plus they are much lighter and more easily removed at your destination then hard luggage. Use your load capacity for the things you need, not for the weight and mounting hardware for hard luggage. Work great on my KLR 650! July 16, 2013
