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 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.

I ordered this bag after deciding my previous bag didn't hold enough. I have not used the bag, but out of the box I was pretty impressed with it's construction and size. The expanding zippers will make this bag work for short or longer trips. When I make my next trip, I will update this.
"Excellent product. Shipment arrived quickly and in perfect condition. Have done business before with Jafrum and will again. Thanks"
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.
"I like having a good bag for my bike, I found this bag and use it"
very satisfied with the purchase
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.
Great bag and quality. Love all the room it has.
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!
It is roomy enough for 3 pair pants weeks worth socks and other stuff perfect for this 2913 surgis rally great buy
We didn't know what to expect until we received our bag. The price was EXCELLENT as this bag is DEFINATELY a$150.00 bag or better. Very roomy & quality was excellent. Shipping was fast as we received it very quick. Great value!
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.
I like it but wish it had a hard liner inside to make it more rigid.
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.
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.
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.
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
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
Fits well on the medium height sissy-bar on my Sportster. In front of it or behind it. Great for an overnighter.
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.
