Bags Connection Cargo Bag £115
Miles covered/time: 1500/two months
What’s good? The best thing about this bag is how easy it is to secure to the bike.
It’s attached with just four mounting straps and two little support straps which can be left permanently attached to the numberplate - it is literally on and off in a matter of seconds.
Its 52-litre capacity and three compartments mean I’ve managed to stuff it with enough gear for days away and still had room for more.
It has a good solid strap for carrying it off the bike and a handy elasticated section on the left and right outer surfaces for carrying extra clobber.
Also, because it is low and long, I can still manage to swing my short legs over the bag when it’s full.
What’s not? Only the main, large compartment has a waterproof liner, so anything in the two side pockets gets wet.
