Anybody tried the FastPack Seat Bag??

Saw this and thought it was kinda cool, just wondering if anyone has used it? It's supposed to fit the 919, looks like a 599 in the pic.

That looks pretty handy, Would work well on the 919, or my bike, anything with a 1 piece seat.

I like it, but it would not work for my corbin seat. I have a tail bag that I like, but it makes getting on the bike a little more difficult. I also own 2 tank bags.

I'm curious, what do you guys (and gal) see as the pros to this bag?

I hate to say it but i'm at a loss....the only thing I can come up with is the stealthiness when not in use.

well use a normall bag, when not in use take it off. but price is not all that bad so what ever.
one con is the straps may rub on the cowl.

Looks interesting. I used to have a back pack strapped on passenger seat of my 1982 Nighthawk 750. This is a little more professional.
Now I have a cargo net on the back of my 919.

BOUGHT IT!

OK, so I got my tax refund back so I decided to stimulate the economy!
I bought the Cycle Guys Fastpack from New Enough.com, can't beat free shipping & the price was the same at every site I found.
I have had it about a week and I love it. It is much better than using the bungee cargo net. Goes on in minutes & really fits the bike well. It even matches the material Sargent used on my seat! LOL! This will be my new daily bag for small items. I first tried the straps one way but found the rear strap interfered with the seat lock the way I had it so I ended up crossing the rear straps in an X pattern. You'll see in the photos. And yes, I know the bike is FILTHY but that's not the point.
Anyway, I like it and give it a thumbs up. Very compact when not open and fits the lines of the bike well.
Here's some pics.

you can put a bottle of water and more. A six pack would fit in it easily.
I haven't filled it yet but I'll try to get a pic with a bunch of stuff in it.

That is a really ingenious design! I like the way that you can leave it all the time and when collapsed it looks like part of the seat. Very cool attachment method too with no external straps. Perfect to just leave on the bike and have a place to stick small stuff, good find!
