The pictures make it look better than it really is. I got the wide tunnel for my M109 and it will not fit on with the rear seat installed as the straps for the Velcro pad are way too short. So with the seat cover on I installed the bag, There is just no way to get it to sit right as i believe it was designed to be be sitting on a rear seat that would actually hold the bag in place better. As such the bag moves around alot in the wind and with shifting loads. It is also far more soft sided that you might expect. From the pictures and description I thought it would be molded firmer and overall much more firm yet all in all that is not too much of a distraction and it does work. I left durability at average as I have only had the product for a few weeks and the good ole high desert sun has not yet had it's way with it. If I can find a way to install it over the rear seat and straps that are long enough to allow me to do so I think I will be far more happier with this bag. It is much better than wearing a backpack though. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it resists rain better than expected. I left the bike in the rain for most of a day with paperwork in the bag and it did not leak through.
So, good bag, great idea, nice style but lacks a bit.
Yes, I recommend this product.
