Edge saddlebags any good?

I have a Victory Vegas with swept pipes. I've been shopping the web for saddlebags and found they come in all sizes and prices. After spending some major $$ on a bike the last thing I want to do is get some cheap looking bags.

I found some nice looking edge leather bags @ http://www.edgeleather.com/.

They seem well contructed but what do I know?
Have any of you out there had experience with Edge bags?
Are there other bags I should consider?

Thanks
:confused:

I haven't bought saddlebags yet but I have purchased a jacket, chaps and gloves from Fox Creek Leather and I've found their products to be extremely well made so I will probably buy from them soon.

Give them a look. http://www.foxcreekleather.com

They are a bit more expensive then other sites/companies but their product is handmade in the U.S. if that means something to you. They also have photos of their product actually attached to Victory bikes so you can gauge what you'll be getting. :)

saddlebags

Just to throw my 2 cents in, I found a pair of saddlebags made out of teflon/rayon that are completely rain resistant. They are awesome and can be had for about 85$. They fit either under the pass seat or under the fairings if you have the stock seat on. Best buy in my eyes, especially if you live in Florida like I do and have crappy weather constantly

Vegas bags

I have a set of Victory bags with ghost brackets on my Vegas. Really nice, but kinda small (Ghost Brackets ROCK):D. My buddy has a set of Boss Bags that are really nice on his Harley, but I don't know if they make them for Victory.

Hi,

As far as saddlebags go, I went with Cycra/Hardstreet bags. I have an 07 8-Ball and these have been great. You can check the bags out here:

The Victory Riders Association posted a pic of my bike on their site if you want to see the bags. That pic is here:

I've been using mine for a year now and they've worked very well in all kinds of weather. I also got the saddlebag inserts and those are very nice to have, particularly after a long day on the road, you're at the hotel, and all ya gotta do is grab the insert and you're on your way to your room with all your stuff. And, they do hold a lot of stuff. I can get my riding jacket, chaps, and maps in those bags, even with the inserts already in there and filled with stuff.

So, that's my $.02.
