These saddlebags are an amazing value! They are exactly as described, and look great on my Honda 750 ACE. I was concerned that they might be too big, but they are a perfect size, in my opinion. The quick-connect fasteners behing the buckles are a very nice feature, giving modern convenience while preserving the classic appearance that I want. The exterior pockets are great for immediate access to small items, and the Velcro fasteners are more convenient than snaps. The built in stiffness preserves the classic shape without sharp corners or the rigid appearance of hard luggage, which for me is wrong on a cruiser (but to each his/her own). Because of the sissy bar on my bike, I have cut slots in the mounting yoke to improve the fit, and will add grommets to prevent tearing and preserve the neat appearance. The zipper mounting is also very convenient. Altogether, I can't criticize anything about them. Thanks for an excellent product and excellent service!
