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.

Sissy Bar Bag Mounting Instructions
Universal sissy bar bags can be mounted on almost any model bike depending on the width or height of your sissy bar or luggage rack. Generally, they can be mounted to the luggage rack with straps featuring quick-release buckles. Also, the bag can be fitted over the sissy bar (up to 9” width) and secured with quick-release straps as well. Any additional roll bags can be secured on the top of the main bag with mounting straps that are included.

Bag arrived quickly. It was easy to mount to the backrest. The bag came with a rain cover which was wonderful as it keeps everything dry. I liked all the room in it and able to expand it since we brought some extra souvenirs home. Very happy and impressed with it.
Good price, fast shipping, it will do nicely.
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.
I was looking for a functional piece of luggage for my sissy bar. The bag is exactly what I was looking for, and at a great price. The material is durable and cool looking. I love all the pockets and optional ways it can be used.
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.
IT IS A GREAT BAG, PEOPLE WHO HAVE BOUGHT THIS BAG FROM ME LOVES IT!!!!
Got this for travelling. No trips so far, but this will work very well. Larger than the old Army backpack, but will fit nicely on the passenger seat. Seems like it will securely fasten to the backrest. Happy!
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.
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.
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!
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 !
Great looking case. Should be great on our upcoming Beach Cruise.
What you get for the money in terms of utility and value here is about as good as it gets. I've used the bag just for luggage on regular trips but it fits perfectly on the luggage rack of my Yamaha Raider Cruiser. As with everything I've purchased from Jafrum, the price is right, shipping is fast and the quality is top notch with supple soft leather. The only slight negative to the bag and it's easily overcome is the sheer range of attachments to your bike that are available. Once you learn it though, it is very flexible. Nothing in the retail stores comes close to this for the price.
I have not had an opportunity to use the bag yet. But, all indications show it to be a very well constructed and quality made product. I was expecting a tarp like material but am pleasantly surprised. I would have found the main bag worth this price alone so, the top bag is a great extra. Shipping was very quick with no delivery issues. I am thoroughly pleased with my first Jafrum experience and would not hesitate to order again.
Good material. Already caught in rain and it stayed dry. Wish they kept strings in back instead of switching to snap hooks. Could have better zippers. Overall definitely worth the money though.
I received the bag promptly and in very good shape. I haven't used it yet but I think it will work out fine. The staff was very helpful.
Bought this bag for a gift. My guy hasn't used it yet. But was impressed with the price & quality.
Great bag, folds up into my saddle bag when not being used. Surprisingly big holds everything we need for a weekend trip. So far so good!
I purchased this recently to add to my other luggage for long trips as it was on sale at a great price. The bag looks like it will do exactly what I need. It give me more storage capacity that is very flexible. It will also be great for day trips when I need to take some gear but want it to be handy to get to.
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.
