These are simply the best bags on the market if you take a lot of road trips, as they offer 1579 cubic inches of storage space. Why hard bags over soft bags? SIMPLE - Hard bags do not "flop" around and allow for even weight distribution which is critical for turns and windy conditions. The passenger peg is accessible but we recommend Kuryakyn peg extenders if you desire more reach. Fits all year Dyna models and is compatible with piggyback or reservoir shocks. Some piggyback shocks require the reservoir to be flipped forward.
Stainless steel hinges and welded hinge pins. Black powder coated steel frames.
*new for 2020 - added gussets to the shock stud mounting points
*new for 2020 - we have lightened the lids and increased the wall thickness by 1.5 mm which means a lighter yet even stronger bag
*WE HAVE ADDED THE EARLY (2001-02') "SHORT STYLE" DEFENDER BAG TO THE LINEUP. THIS BAG IS APPROX. 2.5 SHORTER THAN THE OLDER (2003-04') DEFENDER BAG. BOTH ARE IDENTICAL IN LENGTH (see pics for comparison)
