I have thier bags on my Suzuki Boulevard. The fit and finish on the bags themselves are great for the price I paid. But the hardware it came with was pure junk. I had to go to Ace Hardware and find longer bolts to get the bags on.

Thanks for the input, with the brackets it comes with is it a universal one fits all/most or do i need to order different brackets for my 8-ball?

All of them are nice, like you I prefer the 'hard' bag. Lockable & 2300+cu/in... 38liter? for that price. Seems like a deal too me.

They look great on the Vic,models shown

i have had 2 sets of their bags. The bolts that come with the mounting hardware are not the greatest, but the mounts work fine for me. The quality of the bags are great as well.

I am about to put on the leather covered hard bags when they arrive this week. The first set they sent me had a messed up latch mechanism. Dealing with their customer service to get a return was a royal pain in the ass. Took almost 3 weeks to finally get a shipping label emailed to me.

Other than that issue...they are good products.
