Default Springfield hard saddle bag inner bags (liners) - which is best?

I have a new 2016 Springfield with the hard bags which Iím told are the same as the Chieftain.

I want to buy a set of inner bags (liners). Iíve done some research and found the following companies makes liners for the Springfield/Chieftain hard bags.

Indian OEM
Deluxe Saddlebag Travel Bags - Black | Indian Motorcycle

Bestem
Indian Chieftain Saddlebag Side Case Liners, Black

Cee Baileyís
Cee Bailey's Indian Motorcycle Saddle Bag and Top Case Liners

My question is has anyone purchased any of the above and what is your impression, good or bad, of them. Also and are there any more inner bag/liners out there that I should consider.

Thanks for any advice.

Cheers Kym

Congrats on your Springfield, my favorite Indian, should I buy one. I have been riding since 1952 and doing long distance touring since the late 70s. My advice would be no liner bags. Why? Cos there's only so much you need to schlep into your room when on the road and the rest can remain safely in the cases. So a smaller carry bag suffices. The rest consists of rain and foul weather gear, tools and tyre repair needs, camera and other personal things. Many times, when I'm not going to change clothes, I just take a toiletry kit into the room. A liner bag cramps my style, it takes up all the room in the case, leaving none for the above mentioned. But its your bike, your choice.

I only ever use one liner bag. The rest of my things as Ricz says stay on the bike. I do find one liner bag useful. The Vic brand I have for my XC are well made, super thin and fit awesome. I can't imagine the Indian set being inferior. I want to get a tour pack for when my old lady is with me... I think she would enjoy the armrests and the speakers. My buddy has the Indian tour pack liner bag. It's a nice little addition. He uses it for the hotel room, carries a couple changes of clothes, shaving kit, shoes and miscellaneous with no issues.

Hey Travis, did you see the thread for someone selling a tourpack(top case)?

No I didn't Ricz... I am searching now. My problem is most US guys don't want to ship to the north. I could always get it sent to you I suppose.

I sent him a PM.. Waiting on a response. Price is right on the piece. I think Momma would like arm rests a lot. I wish they made a mid size tour pack. The razor one from Atlanta custom baggers is too small. The Vic one is huge. If there was a midsize I would likely leave it on all the time. Then if we needed to go on a longer trip I could put a biker roll on a rack on top of the tour pack.

Kmoulds, we haven't forgotten you, just got sidetracked here. I hope our suggestions helped. I've done a lot of touring and if you need tips, come on back. Here's one some don't know: Roll everything (I mean every piece of clothing) real, real tight and secure with rubber bands or ...? That will conserve space. Take half the clothes and twice the money. And don't forget to air up tires and rear shock.

Go to Walmart, Target, camping supply stores etc. Buy some small nylon "gym bags" you know what I'm talking about. Pack your tools, plug kit in one, clothes in another, toiletries in another, etc. I'd suggest different colors. When you get to the hotel/motel grab the bag(s) you need...easy and cheap and they pack well in the bag and don't waste space. My Wife gets the left case, I get the right and all the motorcycle support items are there as well. I carry a waterproof bag on the rack with rain gear on top and extra riding gear and jeans on the bottom. Most people take too much stuff. Most Motels have a washer/dryer and socks and underwear, T-shirts are cheap.

BTW...I'm with RicZ love the Springfield...rode one.
