They can be found at Cabel's, Amazon, or Wally World for under $70.00 (except Cabela's):




Wrinkles from being boxed up.



Installation took no time at all. I may get a rear rack extender for easier access to the straps.

I prefer this style over the hard shelled containers do to its flexibility for storage and lower stance to allow for better visibility to the rear.

I like it. Looks real nice and plenty of storage. Only question is could someone riding on the backseat use it as a back rest? Is it sturdy enough to lean up against for some support?

I had one (or the Stearns/Mad Dog branded version) on my old wheeler. Decent bag for the price..... a few weeks back I read a post about putting semi rigid foam in it to help it hold it's form. I liked that idea, but don't have a bag..... just passing the idea along, if you r interested.

They could use it as a back rest if it were full of gear. It may be sturdy enough for quick or short rides, especially with a younger/smaller rider. I bought it more for storage. If hauling a passenger a lot, you should look into a Touring model.

Coleman makes some nice soft bags , the one I use to have had a cover that pulled out of the zippered bottom rear compartment of the bag and it would go up and over the bag itself and cover it and the whole machine . The cover had elastic around the bottom and fit nice to the machine. The bag was called the Coleman Xtreme ATV BAG.
I now use the Cabelas Tac ATV Bag System . This bag is also a very nice bag that has a lot of Molle loops to attach things to . I like it the most because I bought the matching soft gun case that can be attached on top or on the rear of the bag. I attached it on the rear of the bag and it sits on and is also supported nicely by my rear Polaris bumper. It comes with a small cover that just covers the bag itself. Comes in black and camo.

I have the same model in Camo that I purchased from Wally World for $70.00. So far I've been very pleased with it. I keep a wide variety of items in the storage compartments; anything that can't handle getting wet goes in a Ziploc for added protection. The additional padded seat comes in handy for occasional low speed passenger hauling; I'd buy again.

I used to have a black Kolpin bag on my old wheeler and found it very useful. Unfortunately I sold the old bag with my old wheeler. I have been looking at these Coleman bags and plan on grabbing one. They appear to be a decent bag for the price.

Our local Walmart has them in the Automotive department also..... there is a small section of Coleman atv type accessories. Usually they are near the reciever hitch / trailer accessories.

I had one back when i had my 400. Go to target they have little plastic totes (2.00$ a piece) that fits right in the side parts of the bag with a top to them. Makes it nicer with a rider they have something a little harder to lean on. For the very back part (backrest) I put a 12 pack soft cooler (12.00$) in there and made it a little bit more ridget to lean on as well and you have a cooler.
