Default Anyone with experience with the Saddlemen Tail mount bags?

Here is a link to what I am looking at:

http://www.saddlemen.com/store/index...oducts_id=7427

This one or the wide tunnel depending on how it will fit my CycleOps rack and how close the overhangs will be to my fenders.

I thought saddle bags were going to do the trick but am having a hard time finding soft ones that will fit my gear for work (namely my laptop).

Was thinking that one of these would do the trick.

I like the looks of that one as well but could not find anywhere where it listed out the dimensions of the tunnel so I could tell how well it would fit on the back of the bike.

Dimensions: 8"H x 13"W x 16.5"L
Capacity: 23 Liters (29 Liters Expanded) the sides unzip and it expands wider it has a soft foam rubber piece if you set it on the fender to protect the fender. All straps slide back into the unit under neath out of the way when you carry it. Really slick. I store my registration in the side compartment. Has all kinds of storage in and out in the zipper compartments.

Ahh when I looked at the link on my phone I thought I was seeing the sides that went over the fender like the Saddlemen bag does.. hence my question about the tunnel dimensions.

Ended up taking a chance and ordering one.. fits perfectly and mounts securely over the CycleOps rack. Plenty of room in the bag for the laptop and everything else I need to bring into work. A few clips to undo and the whole thing comes off the bike in seconds. Could not be happier with it!

I have had mine for years, still looks like new. I really like the handle and quick on and off mount.
