Walmart Saddle Bags Review

Hi All!

Last season I posted looking for advice on buying some hard saddle bags. I ended up getting some soft bags at Walmart and used them for the remainder of the season. Here they are:

They were easy to install and didn't need supports on the sides. For me I also appreciated their black/gray color matched my bike. (See picture.)

So, if you're looking for bags on a budget, I give these
See ya,

Lil small for my liking, but for that price....

....where are they made, and did the stitching hold up....most times, budget softbags have their stitching come out....

Man, you can buy almost everything at Wal-mart.

Those actually look nice. Let us know if they hold up well.

Yea Wolf, bought a two piece leather "T" bag online for like $40. Lasted barely one trip. All the straps began to fall off due to crappy stitching. Nothing was reinforced. Ended up just throwing it away.

They always tell you if a deal sounds to good to be true......it likely is.

Now.... I bought a small nylon zip open bag at Wal-mart to hold tools for just a few bucks. (Was a makeup bag actuslly) Thing is still going strong after 11 years....
