Nelson Rigg CL1040TP Jumbo Tail Pack

This is the big one. The CL1040TP Jumbo Tail Pack is one of the largest tail bags on the market. An expanded volume of 42 liters beats out the storage capacity of most saddlebags. The CL-1040-TP is constructed using UV treated ballistic nylon to ensure this bag stands the test of time and is less likely to fade in comparison to other nylon or polyester luggage. 

Features:

  • Nelson-Rigg's largest bag for serious storage capacity
  • Easily mounts to most tail sections and seats
  • New self-adjusting hooks attach to bag with soft ties connecting to bike
  • Made from top quality Tri-Max ballistic nylon with Fibertech accents
  • Bag maintains shape, has reflective piping and a lined interior
  • Adjustable shoulder/tether strap and heavy-duty zippers
  • Office organizer under lid
  • Protective material prevents slipping or marking
  • Side charging port for cable access
  • Fully expandable to hold most full face helmets
  • Includes a Lifetime “No Hassle” warranty
  • Includes rainstorm cover
  • Main compartment measures: 14” L x 13” W x 10” H / 13” H expanded
  • Holds 33 Liters / 42 Liters expanded

Great bag at a good price
Basically a great bag. Good quality materials/construction and functional design, TONS of space compared to most other bags but still maintains a pretty aerodynamic low profile and it looks streamlined once its on. Keeps its shape when empty, which I like, and the straps are awesome, waaay better than bungee cords. My biggest complaint is that it has a soft bottom, which wouldn't be a big deal normally, but with a tail bag this size unless you have a very wide, flat tail section the sides of the bag (which extend a good few inches over the sides of my Monster 796) will pull over and down around the sides of your seat when you cinch it down, even when full, making it impossible to get a snug fit...unless you have it full of square plates the exact size and shape of the bag. You want a tight fit so it doesn't move around back there and to get it right I had to fabricate a little mounting deck out of an old lunch tray and that did the trick, but it was kind of a time consuming hassle. Not exactly plug and play, in my case at least. This could be solved easily by including an aluminum or plastic hard bottom plate sewn into the bag, but I suppose that would add significant cost, too. Anyway, now that I've got it dialed I have no complaints. Great bag.

Nice size.......
bought this bag for longer trips on my FJR. Not a huge fan of hard top cases so I tried this one.

Size is deceiving, when expanded it holds a ton of stuff.

Connection to the bike is simple, quick and easy with the mounting straps.

Rain cover works well, rode in the rain for 3 hours and my computer and clothes were dry as a bone.

Quality and finish is top notch, for the money it's well worth it!

Highly recommended.

6500 highway miles with no issues or wear
Chicago to Seattle and Seattle to Phoenix were the bulk of the miles. Works perfect on the rear seat pad of my FJR. Dry with the cover in the rain. Hard rain for 2 days and speed and not a drop. Excellent product and easy to use. With this bag and my paniers I could travel indefinitely with everything I need. I actually have room for more if I want it. Also works as a backrest for me on the FJR.

No Complaints
The bag works as advertised. Putting it on the first time took maybe 5 minutes (on the '02 SV650). If you take it off and leave the straps attached to the bike, it's even faster (although I wouldn't ride with the straps dangling, as they may get caught in the chain/sprocket).

The bag seems quite durable, and is heavier than I had anticipated.

It is a large/tall bag, and is too tall for me (6'0") to swing a leg over when getting on (I can swing a leg over when getting off). I have to step over my seat to get on.

Very nice quality product. Great value!
After a few weekend trips without a tail bag, my significant other was growing tired of the backpack under a cargo net on the pillion. With an upcoming week long trip through a few New England states, we looked for something that could carry her for a week. After some research, I narrowed our options down and could not pass up the price for this Nelson Rigg piece. Having owned the mini tank bag from Nelson Rigg, I was familiar with the products but the the quality of the product is top notch. The ability to expand the bag as well as the ability to expand even the rain cover was key. My expectations for most rain covers is a somewhat universal elasticized cover. This cover was designed to fit the bag like a glove even allowing the bottom to expand via zipper.

When the bag is empty, one nice piece is that it holds it's shape well. Not quite as well when expanded but why expand the bag if it's empty? This is a nice feature as trips with an empty floppy bag can become annoying.

I would recommend this bag if you are looking for a weekend/week long trip. It could possibly be used as a commuter bag as well but honestly may be a bit large for that unless you have a significant amount of cargo daily.

GREAT Bag
I really like this tail bag. Its big enough to carry a weekends worth of gear or additional gear for a longer trip with the side bags I have. And it fits a full face helmet when expanded.

good tailbag for the money!
tail bag is a nice addition to the saddlebags I purchased earlier.....when I unzip the expansion zipper I can fit my helmet inside....and there are ALOT of pockets and storage space, hopefully I will be able to go on some trips and pack them to see actual space for storage.....should be good for what trips I will be taking

A little tough to install on an FJR
I am not giving it an excellent rating because I have just started using it. Ask me in a couple years. The install with the provided straps was a no go. I have some reusable zip ties that firmly attached it and are working very well so far. They look ugly, but I haven't cut off the excess yet. Have some photos on the FJR Facebook page.

great tail bag or back seat bag
I had this installed on my 2007 Buell, worked great tons of storage to go grocery shopping or whatever. Installed it on my 2002 Sportster and mounts great. So I've got one bag that'll fit two bikes. Fits a gallon of milk and two boxes of cereal easily. Remains snug on the bike and is easy to remove. Recommend this product.
