Sissy Bar Bags - Waterproof Motorcycle Sissy Bar Bag SB1PU Reviews
Comment: I just got back from an 800 mile round trip ride and had plenty of room for everything I took. Construction is top notch and very heavy material. Overall, I love this equipment and feel very confident having it on my bike.
Man Made SB1PU sissy bar bag
Comment: Liked what I saw and ordered it. Was very skeptical when i got it and almost sent it back. Used it on a road trip and GOOD GRIEF at the room in it. I was able to pack everything i needed for a 4 day/3 night trip plus an extra set of clothes. All of this fit in the bottom bag leaving the barrel bag for my half helmet. It was also very comfortable to lean back against. One small issue, the cover is a little too big, which is ok if you can get it to pull down tight. If not the wind will whip it which will cause the waterproof coating to come off. Definitely worth money!!!!!
Sissy Bar bag
Comment: Overall, very good. A little disappointed by the mini duffle. It is quite small and and cumbersome to use. However, once you are used to loading and unloading, this bag gives you everything you need for a long outing. I am doing 12,000 miles tour of the country this summer and the bag will be with me.
Comment: This bag can hold anything you take. Went on a 4 day rode trip, had room for more. Great $, and waterproof for that rain shower you find on a ride Lol. Buy it, you will love it!!

Motorcycle T Bag
Comment: Received the bag promptly and used it already on a 13 day trip. Easy to attach, straps worked well, zippers are strong, wish the opening was a little bigger to load it, but it worked well for us. Nice that it expanded as we needed every square inch it gave us. Two people for 12 days we needed the room and it worked very well. The smaller bag attached to the top of the T Bag easily and also worked well. Great investment for the money.
Comment: I like having a good bag for my bike, I found this bag and use it

Great Bag. Great Value.
Comment: These bags are so good that you will not believe it. So roomy that I ran out of things to put in there before I ran out of space inside. The box showed up on my doorstep 2 days before I started looking for it, wow, that was like an unexpected birthday surprise. There are almost too many straps to hold it together and on your bike. I stood there 10 minutes trying to figure out where all the straps needed to go. As a matter of fact I had to cut off a couple straps and shorten others so there was less flapping in the wind. That is a good problem. Perhaps on your bike you will need all the straps. The bag is soft and floppy whish is good if you are resting your back against it as you ride. Sometimes I place a small box inside as a stiffner so it retains it shape nicer and have also used the old trick of a small waste paper basket.GREAT VALUE. Buy it you will not regret it.
CANT GO WRONG
Comment: YOU CANT GO WRONG WITH THIS BAG IT IS VERY STURDY AND VERY HIGH QUALITY. IT HOLDS ALL YOU WILL NEED FOR A DAY TRIP OR OVER NIGHTER.
Comment: Excellent product. Shipment arrived quickly and in perfect condition. Have done business before with Jafrum and will again. Thanks
Better than expected
Comment: Product arrived earlier than expected and is better than expected.
Perfect for road trips
Comment: This bag is much bigger then I expected and better. Perfect for road trips.
Comment: I recently used this bag for a three day trip and it held more than I needed. I didn't notice the expanding zipper until I got back or it would have carried much more. It attached very secure to my passenger's back rest and kept all my things dry during a high wind heavy rainstorm. Great product!
Comment: First of all, I felt the quality of the bag's materials and workmanship is much better than appears in the picture. Secondly, fitting it on my bike is a bit tough since the sissy bar on my old 82 1100 Maxim is very short but that's not the fault of the bag. I have only a little over 6" of bar to work with and I feel I can still get it secure enough. And if you're a person who needs directions to do anything and have no amount of creativity whatsoever, you will be confounded by the myriad of possibilities you have to attach it to your bike.

SB1PU sissy bar bag
Comment: I have a 97' FXSTC and I love it. One problem was NO BAGS. I have gotten a decent set of saddles, But could not carry enough to really travel. Found this bag and bought it. I am away from my bike for two years, But I know this will be great on it for my runns to STURGIS and LAUGHLIN, And even maybe a coast to coast trip. Plenty of room to stuff it full and with all the extra pockets I know everything will fit. Has extra straps to tie it to the bike and can be used as a rucksack or backpack WITH NO ISSUES. Its GREAT!! CAN'T WAIT TO USE IT ON MY BIKE. I use it as a Backpack while I am here and It is AMAZING!!!
Great buy for the money
Comment: Bought this for short camping trip. Holds plenty of stuff and mounts easy to my bile Kawasaki Nomad. Just the thing I needed.

Bike Rider Buddy
Comment: I like the sissy bar bags, I can use just part of it if I want.
Good Bag & BIG
Comment: I got this bag months ago but never needed it for a trip until September. Took a 3 day trip & it was perfect. I also have a short sissy bar, but it did fine, especially with bungies holding it to the bike. Overall I'm very pleased. Love Jafrum for lots of reasons. I check them first when shopping.
Valley Grande, AL
Can't go wrong with this bag!
Comment: This bag is a must have especially at the discounted price! Very high quality leather with a fulll rain cover. Super fast shipping as usual from Jafrum. Thank you. dickfitzwell
Nice Motorcycle Bag
Comment: Have used this bag for over 2 weeks now. Holds alot of items. The + of the bag is that you can also use it as a backpack. Also w/ the bag being able to expand to the 'Big Bag size' is also another plus.

Waterproof Motorcycle Sissy Bar Bag Travel Bag SB1PU
Comment: I got it for Christmas. Very nice, well made, sturdy, BIG, with lots of extra pockets, and it expands. I will have to remove the pad off the sissy bar for it to fit over it, I have a Vstar 950T- but it has plenty of straps for going around the bar and under the seat. It fits over the 650 vstar just fine.
Comment: got here fast. was amazed at the size and variety of strap options. great price and quality..highly pleased and recommend to anybody.
Sissybar Motorcycle Bag
Comment: I have yet to use the bag, however just by looking at the Bag compartment size as well as the smaller bag that attaches to the top,it all seems to be great quality for the money. The zippers are wide and sturdy for a plastic zip and seem to be easy to use (no binding) the man made material is soft and pliable easy enough to place items in and have a bit of stretch room. The straps are great, easy to conform to the seat and seems to be attached securely, this however does not fit over my back rest as i have a thick back rest for my wife's comfort. it is expandable so any larger items will fit. all in all with out using it yet it seems to be a great buy. Recommend it to anyone who would like to save a 100 bucks for a quality bag.

Waterproof Motorcycle Sissy Bar Bag Travel Bag SB1PU
Comment: Ordered this bag to replace an old one. Good bag for the price. I received the bag and one zipper did not work so called customer service who were great and replaced the bag in 2 days! Excellent customer service!
Good bag for the road
Comment: Great bag for the price could get alot in it best used with a short sissy bar. I have a tall one so I have to rest the bag on the seat, did a five day trip with it.
Travel Bag for Motorcycles
Comment: I have used the bag 3 times in the last 3 months for 3 long rides. Laughlin, Las Vegas and Washington state. The bag has held up well and I have riden in some pretty nasty weather. I set it on the passenger seat and strap it to the sissy bar and it makes a perfect back rest. It has plenty of room for everything needed.
Tail Bag for Suzuki C90 Boulevard Motorcycle
Comment: Great bag thank you Jafrum! Fast shipping and fits great on my Suzuki C90 Boulevard. Perfect for weekend getaways or week long trips. Plenty of straps to secure to any bike. I just back from a weekend ride from Vegas to Scenic byway 12 in Utah. Beatiful ride... I highly recommend the ride through scenic highway 12 in Utah to everyone. This bag was great plenty of space...

Comment: This bag is BIG. It easly held enough clothes and gear for a week long cruise for myself.The slipover pocket fit perfectly on the OEM backrest and there is enough straps to tie this thing down on any bike. A well made bag and looks good on my bike.

Very satisfied customer
Comment: Have not used bag yet, ordered bag and was delivered the next day. Cain't ask for better cust. service. Bag looks like everything it was advertised to be, will report back on how bag holds up.
Reasonably good for the price
Comment: I have not had a chance to use this one yet but I am going on a long trip in Sept. and will use it then. I already have the same bag in leather that I purchased two years ago. The quality of that one was great but the zipper pulls on two of the outside pockets died. This one seems to have better hardware. It is as the ad states, Man Made Material not leather. It is a little lighter than the leather model.
Sissy Bar Bag
Comment: this is a great set for the price. It holds all my gear with room to spare and does it at a great price. Way to go Jafrum
Nice piece of gear - Ride Tested for 3 Years
Comment: I have had mine for 3 years and it is not even close to being worn out. For a long time I didn't have a car at all and this bag became my trunk, I have stuffed it with clothes, groceries, brief case, tools. I even carried a small microwave in it once, when it got dirty of gross from carrying groceries I threw in the washing machine just like new.
Colorado Springs, CO
Just what we needed
Comment: This worked out very well for a short over night trip. It fit securely over the sissy bar without any worry of shifting once placed.
sissy bar bag
Comment: Went on a long trip on the bike and everything I needed fit in it. Great price and unbeleivable size of the bag.
Good Bag, LOTS of room
Comment: Just rode 3000 miles round trip to Sturgis. Bag held everything, kept it all dry, and stayed attached to scooter. Fast shipping, good price. LOTS of room in bag.
Comment: Wise, old design engineering professor of mine said "good enough is very best" and this bag is "good enough". Material has 0 "breatheability" & had to take things out every nite to keep from getting mildew. - Could really use some mesh pockets.
Straps are not nylon & cotton seems cheap.
It arrived promptly
Price was great
Heap plenty storage space
Zippers work well
Dry sack is super, duper water tight

Comment: Love the bag. Great quality and holds a lot of stuff. I packed for a 2 week trip and had room to spare! Great price and I just love the bag.
Ocean Springs, MS
Comment: We don't have sissy bars, but with all of the straps, room and the price we got two bags for our upcoming trip. They strapped around our bedroll and will all the different connecters included we will be getting a little extra strap to customize to our situation. very flexable and a great deal, you can't go wrong. Did a little preride with everything strapped on and it worked great, very secure.
Can hold more than it looks like it would!
Comment: This bag is deceiving in looks, it will hold a lot. When we received we looked at it and thought no way, but this things expands and has all kinds of room. What a steal for the price!
Lots of room
Comment: I bought this bag for an upcomming trip. It has plenty of room for everything.
SB1PU Sissybar Waterproof Bag
Comment: First let me say we don't have a sissybar on our bike. Riding and Ultra Classic that has tour pack, but this bag will also work quite well once you get an eye on all the straps and where they go. We actually had something in the smaller bag and it leaked inside onlydidn't come through and dried out rather quickly,rode through the hurricane rains on our ride home the bag remained dry dry dry. Way to go Jafrum for the best prices and quality.
Red Lion, Pa.
Sissy Bar Bag
Comment: I used it for the first time last weekend when I went to the Hot Springs Rally. I had 3 days of clothes & toiletries plus my leather jacket and had plenty of room. Glad I had it!
Great travel bag
Comment: Good product. If you are planning on doing some traveling this is a great bag!
A good bag for a good price...
Comment: This is a good bag for a good price. It is large enough to hold what we need plus what my wife buys on our trips. It attaches securely and looks good on our Shadow ACE.
Larry & Serena
Great Bag - Great Price!
Comment: I recently purchased this bag and used it for a solo trip to BiketoberFest in Daytona. When I received the bag, I admit that I had some doubts- it was big, but would it hold up for the trip? Strapping it on the bike was easier than I expected. I wanted to remove it nightly while traveling, and the mounting straps made it very simple to install and remove in just a few minutes. The bag which is expandable, was big enough to hold all my gear and I still have some side pockets left over! While traveling, I did hit some heavy rain, but everything inside the bag stayed dry and the rain cover was large enough that I could also store my half helmet under it. I would reccommend this bag to any rider that wants a great value in a soft sided bag.
Thrilled to be a Jafrum customer
Comment: Like always when you buy from Jafrum, the item is priced right, the item is quality made, and it gets to you quickly. Thrilled to be a customer.
Great Sissybar Bag SB1PU

Sissy Bar Bag SB1PU
Comment: Great product. Nice big zippers and the material is top quality.
Great Sissy Bar Bags
Comment: With expansion zipper, have lots of packing space & fit well on sissy bar. Will pack it down for a week long trip. Very happy with this purchase!
Sissy Bar Bag SB1PU
Comment: I was reluctant before purchasing this bag b/c of the material. But after receiving it, my opinion was changed b/c it is very durable and easy to use. It has more than enough straps to hold itself to your sissy bar as well as enough room for 5 nights on the road. It is priced right and I would highly recommend this bag to anyone that travels w/ a bike or not.
Comment: Got this bag in 3 days. Another great job by you guys an gals at jafrum. Cant wait to pack this bag up which has all the room I need and head to sturgis this year. Will def. order from you again !
Couldn't be happier
Comment: Bag came in like 3 days....love it, fit perfect on my bike and seems to have plenty of room, I will likely use the small bag all the time! good construction and materials waterproof can't beat it!
Comment: Almost too big, but I'm not complaining..
Lots Of Room
Comment: Love this bag. Had to hard line it with a cut down trash can but holds tons of stuff. Use it daily for work gear. As a firefighter I need to carry lots of personal items for work, including my lap top and this bag does it. Best value ever!!!!
SISSY BAR BAG
Comment: IT IS A GREAT BAG, PEOPLE WHO HAVE BOUGHT THIS BAG FROM ME LOVES IT!!!!
Big Leather Bags!!!
Comment: I went on a 7 day trip. I was able to pack everything I needs and then some. the only thing that I did not like was that one of the zippers broke and the small pocket I can no long use. but other then that it was great for the money.

Pearl River, LA
Love this bag!
Comment: I bought this bag for the Key West Bike run in Sept, and you know how us ladies are! fits great on the back of my 950 Vstar and kept everything dry for the pouring rain showers here in Florida. There is so much room!! This is a best buy worth every cent and will be buying another one as a gift.. love it!!
Comment: This is one huge bag and took all I wanted to take with me. Ordered it the same time as my sissy bar...bag got here bar did not...so I just used a few bungee cords and off we went 10 hour ride bag never shifted and it had lots of space for all my stuff, only thing is the small opening at the top but I got over that really fast. This is the best bag I have found to date in the last 40 some years. Thanks.....and for the cool price to.
Comment: The bag itself is well worth the money. IT has everything you are looking for. Do not buy for the rain cover or think the rain cover is worth it. The inside of the comes off with any wind. the cover stayed on but there is almost no way to get it tight enough so it will not flap in the wind. Just use a trash bag. Better product. Again the bag itself is well worth it.
Fort Collins, CO
Comment: Bought this exact bag about 4 years ago.. the waterproof cover is garbage.. did'nt make it through the first trip. But the bag itself has been on over a dozen trips and is still in good condition. Just put your stuff in plastic bags to keep it waterproof. I would recommend this to friends. Not as easy to get stuff in and out of as compared with hard bags, but for the price and versatility - its a good buy.
Comment: I bought this same set of bag's 2 yrs. ago and they are great, plenty of room for what ever you need to take with you on your trip. Just slip it over the sissy bar and away you go.

Great bag for Sportster

Bag for 2012 Yamaha V-Star
Comment: I have this bag on my 2012 Yamaha v-star 950. So many different buckling options on this bag to keep it attached to the bike. Overall its a great bag for the price & lots of storage room
bought 3 of these bags
Comment: I got one for this summers trip and liked it so much I bought one for each of my boys. huge and easy to get on and off the bike
Great product, Super fast delivery
Comment: After ordering this set of bags on a Wednesday, they arrived in excellent condition on Saturday!! I am very impressed with the two bags and the rain cover and can't wait to get on the road. I bought these for a 900-mile trip next month with a lot of gear to stow. Thanx Jafrum for a perfect transaction and a great quality product.
Corpus Christi, TX
Siisy bar bag
Comment: Exactly what I have been looking for. Waterproof, large enough to hold a week's worth of clothing. And the price was unbelievable. So glad I found Jafrum.
Comment: Great bag for the price! Only thing I would add would be side zipper so you don't have to dig to the bottom of the bag to get that one item you packed first! I highly recommend the bag.
Sissy Bar Bag
Comment: I like it but wish it had a hard liner inside to make it more rigid.
Great Value, Great Product
Comment: I just put 1200 miles on this bag in a week during Spring Break. It was incredibly roomy and the extra roll bag and the rain cover are an added plus. It held up extremely well in the wind of South Texas as well as the chill of Northeast Texas. There is an abundance of straps and I was able to secure this bag easily. I have a V-Star 1300 Tourer and the sissy bar has a padded backrest. I was able to get the back strap over the rest and was confident it would stay in place. An excellent deal for the money. Couldn't be happier.
Corpus Christi, TX
Comment: i just got the sissy bar bag with the waterproof cover. this thing is huge!!! i can definitely see myself going away for a long weekend and having everything in this bag. all at a great price and the straps and buckles just make it even better, expandable!! only thing is no way to lock it up without some minor mods but that's no sweat for an engineer right? love the bag love the price keep up the great deals.
San Antonio Texas
Comment: Haven't used it on the road yet, however planning one. Lots of room and worth the money. However will not fit over all sissy bar back rests. For narrow ones, mine is like 9 inches wide. Lots of straps but will have to use bungie cords or tie downs to secure it in place. Zippers are pretty tight, not sure how long they will last.
SB1PU Sissy Bar Bag - Great Bag
Comment: Great buy for the bucks. I couldn't believe all the room! Quality is much better than the ones I looked at that were $150-$250. I am VERY Happy that I went with this one from Jafrum. Quick and reasonable shipping also. Very Satisfied - If I could give more than 5 star rating I would.
Not the best, not the worst
Comment: This thing gets pretty big. I bought it because expanded the specs say it's way bigger than my Moto-Centric bag. It feels pretty sturdy, although there's no shape to it. I stuffed a gallon can (placeholder) my mesh suit liners, frogg toggs, shoes, fleece, rain cover, and a few tools in the main compartment and had plenty of room left in the top for extra clothes or whatever else I might have needed. That did not include the roll bag or the four side pockets. It looks good, but it's not a shiny as the picture. I was really hoping it would show up and look like those mountain climbing dry bags. The buckles seem pretty sturdy, and the strapshave plenty of room for configuration and adjustments. The material itself is waterproof.

Sissy bar luggage bag
Comment: Impressed with quality of material and how it mounts to my bike, cheap price and worth more money! A PLUS!!!
A deal not to be missed!!
Comment: Planning a cross Canada trip in 2015 and saw this on sale. Even with the customs I had to pay it was well worth the price. It's well made, allows me to pack a lot and I can add a roll bag to it later. Can't go wrong with this product.
Great Bag for a Fantastic Price
Comment: This bag is easy to install and has good usable spaces. I had a larger bag but this is just the right size. My full face helmet is XXL and is a tight fit but it does go in. I have attached the extra small bag to the luggage rack and have tools and other small items in that. All in all this was one of my better purchases.
Sissy Bar Bag SB1 PU review at Jafrum
Comment: Received the traveling bag in a very quick time. Very satisfied with the quality construction. More bag than I thought it was. Great deal for the price.
WHAT MORE DO YOU NEED
Comment: Going to Yellowstone this summer and from past trips I didn't have a bag to handle all of my junk. I packed everything I took on last years trip WITHOUT even opening the expansion area. Can't wait to be able to purchase stuff as we go and be able to have room for it in this bag!!!
Great Sissybar Bag
Comment: Haven't used yet but well satisfied with construction and can't beat the price. Came w/o cover and Jafrum email replied on a weekend, it promptly arrived 2 days later. Great people to deal with.
Fantastic bag( SB1PU) and super service
Comment: Ordered the bag on Tuesday and it arrived Wednesday. Very pleased with the quality and flexibility of strapping system. I need a longer strap to fit around the rear luggage carrier on my Can-Am Spyder RT , no sissy bar-- no problem, the bag came with an extra set of buckles. Jafrum will definitely be my number one source for future gear.
Comment: I have a Suzuki Blvd. The bag fit perfectly. It looks great and has more than enough room. highly recommend this product.
Sissy bar bags are a great way to add a very large amount of easily removable
storage to your bike. There are numerous different sizes, materials, and
mounting options available, so there is sure to be one to suit your needs.
This is the water resistant polyurethane version of the SB1 style bag and is
available in black. The exact measurements of the bags are located in the
product listing. This amazing value includes the top roll bag and a full
coverage rain cover at no additional charge.
The most important thing to remember with motorcycle luggage, especially sissy
bar bags, is that there really isn’t a wrong way to mount them. These bags come
with a ton of mounting options, some of which you may not be able to use on your
particular motorcycle, and that’s ok. You may even come up with an arrangement
that the manufacturer hasn’t even thought of. Basically, if the bag is secure,
it’s mounted correctly.
The main component to the mounting system on the SB1 PU is the lace up sleeve.
Simply fit this sleeve over the backrest and tighten and you’re most of the way
there. There are numerous straps and clips covering the outside that can be used
however necessary. They can be used for mounting the bag to the bike or for
mounting additional items to the bag. The only limitation is your imagination. I
like to use them to secure frequently used items, like raingear, an extra
sweatshirt or vest, or even a tent to the luggage for easy access.
If you use a luggage rack, take note of the weight capacity of the rack. If your
gear is over the weight limit, no big deal. Mount the bag backwards and set it
on the seat. Depending on your riding position, you may have just created
yourself a comfy little rider backrest.
To mount the supplementary roll bag simply feed the mounting straps through the
roll bag straps and connect using the buckles. The cool thing about this strap
system is that you don’t have to put the roll bag here if you don’t want to.
It’s also the perfect spot for your bed roll or sleeping bag. Still need more
room for even more junk? Not to worry. The main bag expands to almost 200% of
its original depth by unzipping this full circumference zipper. The outside of
the bag features four additional zippered pockets for smaller items. The top
pockets are fitted with straps for hanging items you want easy access to.
One of the features this bag doesn’t have that some riders like is an internal
frame of some sort to make the bag rigid. There is actually some benefit to this
in certain situations. I often find that I return from trips with way more stuff
than when I left, especially if I have visited with friends or family. Because
this bag has no internal frame, it can be rolled up and stowed in a saddlebag
until it’s needed. If you prefer a rigid bag, but don’t want to spend upwards of
three hundred dollars to get one, simply place a small rectangular container
like a garbage can inside the bag to create a rigid sissy bar bag.
Another feature included with this piece of luggage is the complementary rain
cover. It rolls up small enough to fit into one of the small exterior pockets
but is large enough to fit over not just the bag but almost anything you may
have attached to the outside of it. If you don’t have anything on the outside of
the bag to fill up the cover, be sure to wrap some bungies of some sort around
the cover to keep the wind from tearing it up. I personally like to use two
opposing cargo nets. It’s ugly, but it works really well.
