Comment: Received many compliments. Surprised at the quality considering the price. Rigid form will hold shape. Very easy to install with straps and locking plastic mounting buckles provided. Quick reelase buckles a real bonus. Easy open, drop items in, quick to close. Hardware of adequate quality but only time will tell if it and quck release plastic buckle are durable. The decoratve only center ornament tassle becomes limp quickly, trailing in the breeze giving it a drooping functional look.
sissy bar bags are made of durable, water resistant PVC and measure 8 ¼ x 4
¼ x 8 ½". For a point of reference, that is about the exact width of many
luggage racks. The 5002 is the plain version and the 5003 is studded. Both
versions feature a concho on the main cover flap. It is important to note that
the 5002 and 5003 have separate listings on our website, so make sure the bag
you want is the one pictured in the listing before you order.
This bag features hidden quick release buckles beneath faux classic looking
buckles for modern convenience with classic style. Opening the lid exposes a
snap down cover flap that helps to keep dirt and precipitation out of the bag.
Inside the bag, you will find a low profile perimeter pocket and you can see the
corrugated material that helps keep this bag rigid.
On the back of the 5002 bag, are quick-release mounting straps. These straps can
be positioned vertically or horizontally to give you choices on how and where to
mount the bag. On this sissy bar, I ran the straps horizontally through the back
pad and the uprights. The bag is secure and should work perfectly. The 5003 has
a little bit simpler setup. The quick release straps have been replaced with tie
cords and these polynylon loops. They do a sufficient job of securing the bag
but if you plan on doing some higher speed highway riding you may want to opt
for the heavier duty SB-5002's strap system.
