Where to buy a Sissy Bar bag

Are there any preferred places out there to buy a bag to attach to my Sissy bar and put on the "passenger" seat? I need to have some good storage options as I'm going to start making a 25 mile (one way) commute daily on my bike.

Alternatively, would I be just as good going with a backpack rather than the sissy bar bag?

Thanks,

Joe

I don`t have a sissy bar bag, but I have used a backpack that was entirely satisfactory. I used a 12' piece of parachute cord to tie it down to the helmet locks, weaving a criss-cross pattern on front and back of the pack, and tying it off at the top with a double slipped surgeon`s knot, (which is basicly a shoelace knot with an extra tuck in the first wrap). For extra security it`s a good idea to take the loop and end of cord on each side, and tie them off in an overhand knot.

I just wear a backpack when I go out until I can get the hard bags I want. Usually only take it with me if it's going to rain or I think it might rain and pack the rain suit and clear shield ( I wear a FF helmet ), or if I'm going out somewhere and won't be back until after dark and pack my baseball hat ( for helmet hair ) lol, my clear shield and safety vest I wear when night riding.
