Summary:
Soft synthetic saddle bags are spacious, light and look good. What’s more they are cost-effective too.
However, when selecting the right soft saddlebags you need to keep the following nine points in mind:


1. Check the denier number. This number refers to the thickness of the thread used. IN other words, the
higher the denier number the more will be the tensile strength. This will lend the bag an extra stiffness,
which will make the bag hold shape even when empty.

Soft synthetic saddle bags are spacious, light and look good. What’s more they are cost-effective too.
However, when selecting the right soft saddlebags you need to keep the following nine points in mind:


1. Check the denier number. This number refers to the thickness of the thread used. IN other words, the
higher the denier number the more will be the tensile strength. This will lend the bag an extra stiffness,
which will make the bag hold shape even when empty.


2. There are two kinds of soft saddlebags; those that can be strapped on or thrown over. Opt for the ones
where the straps stay on the seat. This way you can adjust them when needed.


3. Saddle bags with separate compartments are especially useful when you are carrying different kinds of
things. It is always nice to know exactly where your bungee jumping rope or the suntan lotion resides.


4. Top opening saddle bags are convenient. The side opening ones are easier to handle while riding, but
there is always the chance of things spilling out.


5. It is advisable to check how the bag fits on the bike and if the fastening system is effective. Some bags get
in the way of the passenger’s leg. This can be quite uncomfortable in a long journey.
6. Every soft saddle bag has its own unique mounting system. Try and opt for one in which the receiving
mechanism is permanently stationed on the bike. All you need to do is unclip the bag or conversely, just clip
it on.


7. Soft saddle bags tend to slip inwards on to the wheel. This causes the bag to wear away. In extreme cases
it can also cause the wheels to jam. What you need to do is to put chrome extensions below the fender. This
will stop the wheels from interfering with the bags.


8. Bags will sag after some time on the road. You need to hitch them on the higher side. This way, even
when they sag and slip lower, they will not scrape the road and wear out. Remember, they are synthetic and
the heat caused by friction could well cause them to ignite.


9. Always look for bags made of polyurethane treated nylon. This helps the water to form droplets and run
off the surface during light showers. Also remember to get a custom-fitted rain cover. Nylon or no nylon, no
soft saddle bag is completely water proof.
