Strong Positive Review Of Our “SaddleStow” Large Fastback Sissy Bar Bag

Dennis Mahan of K & N Engineering

Dennis Mahan of K & N Engineering recently sent us a testimonial based on his experiences using our Large Fastback Sissy Bar Bag.

“After riding to Sturgis and back from here in Southern California using this bag, I’m very happy with it. The design is fantastic with the either-side-opening it is convenient to get into while still mounted on the bike. I found the semi-rigid construction was a perfect backrest on those long open roads. The side pockets are perfect for a few water bottles, your camera, cell phone, maps and other items you might want to get during a gas stop or along the highway. I used the straps on top to secure my rain suit giving easy access without opening the bag. Yes, I did have to use my rain suit, and the included rain cover for the bag which kept everything dry. The movable shelf inside was perfect in its highest position to keep my laptop handy but away from possible damage. All in all, your designers have done a fantastic job on this bag.”

William and Gerlide D. Deluxe Sissy Bar Bag

After using our S2600 Deluxe Sissy Bar Bag on two European road trips, Saddlemen customers William and Gerlide D. emailed us complimenting our bag’s design and value. “I must admit I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of your product… The contents of the bag stayed dry through heavy rain. After many miles the bag has retained its shape and great looks.”

Saddlemen S2600 Deluxe Sissy Bar Bag

“I have owned other brands of bags that were not up to the standard that you have set… I am looking forward to many more trips and miles with your fantastic product. Thank you again for a great product at a great price. I will recommend Saddlemen to everyone I can.”
