QBag Tail Bag 3 - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Awesome little bag
For the price - this bag is fab! Had a four day trip to France and needed something just to keep some spare clothes and a pair of shoes in - worked amazing for the job! The straps that run under your pillion seat are a little fiddly to get centred and square on my MT07 seat but that may be because the bag is the same size as my pillion seat. Literally just two straps that hold the bag down so was a bit paranoid and kept checking on the bag still being there but stayed nice a tight on the seat - not a lot of movement and forgot it was there after a while. It's just one big pouch so good if you just need to chuck a few things in. Overall - would deffo recommend for a short stay or day trip bag.
Tardis - Small but Surprisingly big on the inside
This is a great little Tail Bag with a surprisingly spacious interior. It can hold several of my security items including chains and disc locks ect, and also hold my purse, phone and even folded up water proof pants. It has a simple strap fastening system that can easily be tucked under the seat and a zip to quickly remove the bag one your ride is ended 1 negative - I wish it has a handle to hold it when it's not attached to my bike.
Only one negative is I wish the zip went just around the end as when you open the bag I was worried about damaging the Zip. But the bag is very strong and keeps its shape even when empty ideally suit for a chain a disc lock still room to get my waterproof trousers in. I could not make my mind up on the QBag Dakar tail bag so I bought both I would buy theses bags again.
My Second One of These
These bags are great for the daily essentials. I already have one on my CB1100EX Givi Rack and bought a second for my Tracer 900GT to fit a genuine rack. The detachable base is held on with webbing straps and can be easily adapted with a knife to fit pretty much anything, even a rear seat. Easy to remove the bag, leaving the base on the bike, but a handle/strap for ease of carrying would be a good improvement.
Good looking compact bag
Good, decent quality bag for the money, but would pay a bit more with a few changes and additions. The straps need to locate closer to the edge of the base to make the bag more stable (modified mine). The lockable zip is nice but rendered pointless by the non lockable zip to the base. A carry handle or clip on shoulder strap would be nice. Does not look to be waterproof so a rain cover would be good. Looks nice on the bike and is big enough for essentials on a days ride.
Tail end Charlie
Solid construction which is easy to fit. Size is good for a day out blasting. Would be nice if there were more internal pockets. The tail pack has lockable zips which also clip together so there should be no worries about it opening accidentally. It also zips off from its attachment so can be removed from the bike easily. Here in lies the problem! This zip isn't lockable so making the lockable compartment zip useless from a security point of view.
Tidy extra space
+ Room for spare gloves and overtrousers + Netted pocket for smaller items + Soft space divider + Neat shaping + Low price - No carry handle or strap - A shame the base can't stay attached to the straps around the seat a bit further, so they don't stick out like little wings.
This bag is great and for the price, amazing!! I bought two, the Dakar and the Q3 because I wasn't sure which would be best. I'm keeping both. I can get a visor in the Q3 but not the Dakar but the Dakar is a better shape and has a handle. Both have their place!
I found that I needed something to place extra gloves, waterproofs etc as the bike has very little storage. This bags works a treat and is easily removed when perked in public. Have to say, would have been excellent if it was fitted with a handle though. Other than that, cant fault it and wish I ordered it earlier.
Just the job
The bag fits on the seat OK, took a bit of time to get the straps to fit in the right place to close the seat down. But it gets the lock and chain in top cover for when I park at work. Could do with a carrying handle for when you take it off but it's fine for I want it to do.
