I have the Victory bags installed on my Boardwalk. They are of good quality and look great. The problem with the bags is they are rigid on the inside. Meaning they don't expand at all. Also the buckles are deceiving. They are just for looks. There are two non adjustable quick connects on each bag. The top goes down tight to buckle them.
So that being said, what exactly fits in the bag is what you get. In the case of a laptop, I fit my Mac Book 17in pro in there with not problems what so ever. If you're planning a weekend trip with a passenger, plan on a back pack in addition to the bags. For the price they are definitely lacking in capacity as compared to other bags on the market. However, there isn't a lot of choices for the boardwalk at this time that fit the bike and look good.
