Rated 5 out of 5 by ozarkguy Perfect add-on or replacement for OEM
I've had my FLSTCI since I bought it new in the fall of '05. I have almost 100,000 miles on it now. If you take care of these, they will remain new looking for years. If you don't, they will show the wear. Contrary to other reviews, there is plenty of room in them. I've taken many days-long trips, up to 6300 miles, some 2-up, and with a sissy bar bag, we never had any trouble packing enough. I carry a tool set, quart of oil, tow cable, cargo net, WD-40, fuel siphon hose, and a few other essentials, as well as rain suit, cold/wet weather gloves, sweatshirt, chaps, etc. Yes, when riding 2-up they are certainly packed, but there is room, and packing tight just helps them hold their shape a little better. I did install a third-party side and lid stiffener kit, which was worth every penny I spent on it. Mine look almost like new even after 11 years. However, due to a recent accident (had to take the ditch to avoid a deer), mine were damaged, so I was thankful I could replace them with these original looking bags. The look is second to none, at least on a Heritage Softail Classic. True old-school bike look.

Rated 2 out of 5 by GunnyBear all about looks
These saddle bags look great. They are about worthless otherwise, there is very little room in them, I think I can squeeze my rain gear in one side, but nothing else. Forget about carrying extra clothing or being able to take some off and pack it because it warmed up an now you are sweating. Also had to shim one side out with extra washers so the saddle bag would close and snap shut. Get this, there is a drain hole in the bottom of each bag for the water to drain out when it rains hard. Had I known about these issues I would never have purchased them. These are the only bags HD has to fit the soft tail deluxe unless you have it re piped with an exhaust system that is lower [like the shotgun]. If you are just concerned about looks, buy them, otherwise don't
