Overall, I am pleased with this bag. I have used an expandable T-bag for several years, and like it, but I was interested in the rigid, compartmentalized feature on the Kuryakyn. It helps to keep my clothes in better shape and better organized than the T-bag, especially after having to remove items. The items in the T-bag get messed up pretty quickly when you need to get at the item packed at the bottom. The wheels are another nice feature, since I hated lugging my heavy T-bag up stairs and down hallways at the motels I stopped at on my last trip. I am disappointed in the size of the rigid compartments on the Kuryakyn bag though. Although others have said they are happy with the storage space, I find that my T-bag will hold more due to its extra width. If the Kuryakyn bag was 4 inches wider it would be perfect. Like many others, I find the zippers difficult to operate, but I hope this improves with practice and when the stiff cordura softens up a bit. I'm keeping both bags, and I'm going to figure out how to use them both at the same time for those really long cross-country rides.
