Four outer pockets give you bonus space and this bag comes with a waterproof cover as well as a security lock. Plus it is also compatible with the CTB-250 Roll Bag, so you can customize the amount of space you need.

They all attach to your bike using their unique “Full Nelson” mounting system and have lined interiors, with reinforced walls, to help keep their shape. Heavy duty zippers with pull fobs, a rubberized easy grip handle, extra pockets and a “No Hassle” warranty top off the great features in all these bags.
