That is a Wolfman tailbag, the bigger one behind it is Wolfman large dry bag (holds my tent &sleeping bag/matress). The tailbag size is ideal for the bike, bolted it to the carrier so it doesn’t jump around off road.Paul, what kind of tail bag is that? That's another nice configuration.
definitely nicest choice for hard panniers. no VAT tax when shipped to states. so they ship at the 800euro price.I chose Holan Nomada for my bike.
Main reason was the narrow profile (same as with the OEM cases even though the Holan are slightly bigger), as I exercise lane splitting every chance I get.
Good quality and very reasonable price was another factor.
I've been using them on several trips and are happy with my choice.
A couple of years ago I got hit by a oncoming car while on a trip (it had been hit by a lorry and went into a spin) One of the panniers took a direct hit. It got very damaged and had to be replaced. The rack withstood the impact and didn't even get bend, so very sturdy!

I got the 38L version.definitely nicest choice for hard panniers. no VAT tax when shipped to states. so they ship at the 800euro price.
What size panniers are those?
I have the storms and the HB rack too. No issues , love themI swear by my Pelican/Caribou cases.
- If for some reason they get destroyed and you are still alive, they have a lifelong warranty
- Definitely waterproof
- Carry easily into a motel like normal suicases
- Once you get used to side loading it's actually pretty good - you see much better what's in them, the straps keep your shit inside, and the open lids provide staging space for packing and unpacking. And it doesn't matter what sits on top (giant dry bag for example or oversized trunk)
- Go with the Tenere - function over form (wasn't there a song "if you want to be happy for the rest of your life, better make an ugly woman your wife"?)
- with the Caribou mount for Hepco Bcker racks they eject in a crash without causing additional damage
- available in many colors (I debated but ultimately went with black)
- pretty narrow, as in narrower than handlebars
- with Hepco Becker Lock-it racks, they are almost symetrical (only .5" difference between left and right side
- Stickers don't stick well: The Pelican's have a rough surface and lots of ridges, Storm's are smoother I believe
- No stock attachment points to strap something on top
- Backside has a ridge that makes it harder to attach a gas can
- You could call them ugly, but I like them
- Not very heavy, but definitely not lighter than aluminum
- If you want to have more than 35 liters per side, I think the 40L Storm cases look monstrous (but it also gets heavy carrying to much shit)
Glad to help and dealing with Roger was extremely easy. You should go ahead and get an extra break away latch and bring it on your adventures or at least a length of para cord in the event of an untimely get off. Here’s a pic of the cases with my V47...
