Chase Harper Dual Sport Saddlebags Chase Harper's Dual Purpose bags will fulfill almost any functional needs you have for a set of saddlebags. A long feature list accompanies this product, so beyond the short time we are about to spend together, you should look up all the specs.

To start, the one feature that Chase Harper is known for is the stitching. All seams are internally bound with nylon, and the stress points are bar tacked. Two rows of stitching surround the zippers to be sure these high use areas don't degrade. An ABS liner helps when you carry heavy loads and will also let the bags retain their shape when empty.

Constructed of 1000 denier DuPont Cordura, they boast a urethane waterproof coating. You can also buy rain covers if you're paranoid. The inner side is aluminized fabric to reduce damage if your bags come into contact with those hot pipes of yours.

In addition to the over-the-seat mounting, there is a system of 1-inch buckles at three mounting points per bag. These also come equipped with a shoulder strap if you want to take them with you after a long day of riding. For all of this, you will pay an acceptable price of about $200. You do get your money's worth, but I wouldn't say it's a bargain.

The downside is the appearance. These are very plain, rectangular bags. They look like those insulated fabric lunch bags that were so popular in the '90s. There is a tri-ring attachment point at each top corner, so you can hook other things to these bags and hide their dullness. Made in the USA, these are available in black, blue, red, or purple.
