Not yet used it as a backpack,but nice to know i can if i like. Brought it for short weekend trips,to save me taking a big rucsack on my back. Plenty of space,excellent zips, and it even looks pretty good. Definitely recommend for anyone...

Rucksack that doesn't weigh you down whilst riding

This bag for me is now a must have. I ride in London so remaining skinny to weave around traffic is important. Its a pannier on the bike and a rucksack off the bike, I love that. Fitting A4 is no problem and also bulky items is no struggle due to the expanding option. Super easy to install, easy to unzip the base and use it on your back and also added Velcro so if you don't zip it properly etc it's not going anywhere. My only wish is that you could lock it to the bike so when I leave it on I'm not worried about someone unzipping it and taking away a perfectly good rucksack. Highly recommend for city riders and sport bike riders like myself that don't want or can't get an ugly top box on their bike.

Typical Oxford

Was looking hard for a less costly solution to my storage needs. Getting Panniers and racks to hold them was working out so expensive. Torn between a very small space for a Tank Bag or Tail pack. Opted for a Tail Pack. The T40R met the needs at a really good price. Good space and flexibility.The Quality is the Typical Oxford. Very high standard Materials and nice to the Touch. Won't now for a while how hard wearing.The fitting instructions are a bit universal, so it with worth spending some time on You Tube. Overall excellent Product as usual from Oxford. Superb service and delivery from Sportbikeshop.

Great luggage

I have three other rear tail bags which take an age to off load. The Oxford Lifetime T40R is the best for removing from seat. Enough gear to last me 12 days traveling across Euro. Money well spent.

Commuter heaven

I did quite a bit of research before parting with my hard earned cash as £120 isn't cheap. However, after carrying a 30 litre rucksack for over a year, this 40 litre bag is superb on the tail of my CBR600. It took a bit of work to get the strap set under the seat but once sorted, the base allows the main bag to be zipped on and off fairly easily.To be fair, I normally leave on (as I can't be bothered to keep putting it back on). The waterproof drybag inside is not 40 litres but keeps everything dry inside as in heavy rain, the main bag does get damp inside. The bungees included enable that bit of security with the fixing too. When the expandable zip is released for max capacity, I have to be careful to have room to bend my leg properly to get seated - it's not just the usual swing it over! All in all, a very good bag and so much more freedom over a rucksack on an hour commute.

Great luggage

This is the best tail bag I have owned. It is easy to fit and remove and just does the job well and looks good. The bag is robust and the ability to expand/contract makes it flexible for day trips and weekends. The handy waterproof liner bag also makes it easy to remove the contents without having to remove the bag. Great product!

Questions and Answers

Questions and Answers

  • Is this Oxford T40R waterproof??

    October 30, 2017

    The Oxford T40R Tailpack has a waterproof internal liner.

  • Can you tell me the overall dimensions please and is the main compartment large enough for a full face helmet?

    September 22, 2017

    The T40R measures approximately 35cm in length x 32cm width, with a height of approximately 25cm in it's non expanded form. Expanded, the height increases to approximately 32cm. The large internal compartment measures approximately 31cm Length x 25cm width, going down to 20cm width at the narrow end. A full face helmet will fit in the bag, although this would very much depend on model. (There would not be little room for other items, if a helmet was placed inside)

  • Hello Folks, Just come back from a tour of Europe and borrowed an Oxford kit like the one advertised (I think) Has this kit got four straps, one on each corner ? The one I borrowed did and was just the job for my BMW f800gt as they fixed to four points on the bike Regards  Dc

    August 12, 2017

    The base of the tailpack does have four buckles, one on each corner, to strap it down securely.
