Rated 3 out of 5 by IronHeadDave Used mine three years and about 28,000 miles
I have three years of touring on this bag and left it home this year as I have downsized my gear.
The bag shows quite a bit of fading on the trim fabric to the point that it is more purple than black, the top looks wrinkled from getting wet and the plastic in the bottom is all cracked up.
I use a waterproof stuff sack in it to keep my gear dry.
I recommend it for a bag that will be replaced as needed. It still works fine but looks rough. Waterproof baggage is required if you want to keep stuff dry in it. I did not use the external bag which could prevent some water getting in if it's not raining much.
The three trips I am referring to total around 60 days of exposure to the elements on my 2013 Ultra Limited. If I needed the space and was very particular about the looks I would just get a new one every year or two.

This is a terrific bag. I do a lot of touring and I've been cramming everything into the trunk & saddlebags. I just bought this bag & took it on a 5,000 mile ride. It was a real treat having the extra space. I was able to pack 2 days worth of clothes in this bag along with the other often used items and only had to take this bag off the bike each day. Every couple days we'd switch clothes from the saddlebags to this bag. We were able to cut out laundry days in 1/2 and had plenty of room for the extra things we always seem to acquire on the road.
I've seen the comments about the water proofing and the plastic cracking. I rode for an hour in heavy rain and forgot to put the rain gear on the bag. everything was perfectly dry even without the rain gear. I don't plan on pushing my luck, but it was a nice surprise. As for the plastic, my luggage has black plastic; the ones in the pictures had white plastic. So perhaps H-D listened and reacted. Too early for me to comment on that.
All in all. very happy I bought this bag.

We bought this for our trip from Arkansas to South Dakota and Wyoming. My wife loved it before we ever got started, she loved how much it will hold. I like the way it attaches to the rack, very secure, in 2600 miles and 6 days we had no problems with it. On our 2nd day we woke up to rain, so we used the rain cover for about half a day, it kept everything bone dry. Great bag, thanks.

Top notch quality bag that fits and looks part of the bike. Right sized for long rides and not bulky. The built in rain cover is awesome as well. Great purchase and more than I expected.
