bag that fits on passenger seat?

does anyone have suggestions for a good, quick release tail bag that would sit nicely on the passenger seat area of my 990?
ideally i want to keep the rear rack free for a larger ortlieb holdall, and ive decided i really like the 990 without a tank bag..
so i need something that i can throw a water bottle, gloves, wallet etc and other quick access stuff for easy reach..
im also thinking of set ups for when doing bigger journeys. ideally i dont want side panniers, just a holdall or two strapped at the rear.

any suggestions for any that fit well? or even better pics of your set up?
cheers

Hi there crunchiespg - I'm super curious how these work for you since I'm feeling the same and looking to get away from the tank bag

If you get a chance please let us know how the 10 and 20 compare and fit!

i will do... from the reviews i read they seem perfect...

ill maybe strap a small zip pocket to the outside for quick access to a water bottle.

when they arrive i'll do a full review..

I use my Giant Loop Coyote. It fits great and leaves the rack vacant. They come in Orange.

What about a Wolfman tank pannier rollie bag, waterproof, great strapping and easy to get undone, holds about 10 12 L.

Yup. I run an orange Giant Loop Great Basin. It sits on the passenger seat with a large rollie bag on the rear rack. The advantage of the GL is that it will also hold a ton of stuff.

I have the Kriega 20 and it holds 2 spare tubes, irons, electrical kit with meter, first aid kit, tire patch/pump kit and a extra base layer. I use shave kits you can get at Walmart for stuff like first aid and electrical kits. Then I have dry bags also bought from Walmart for stuff like tubes/tire irons, clothes, etc.

Easy on and off.

my us-10 and us-20 are here..
great pieces of kit.. however, im struggling to figure out how best to mount them. i didnt really pay attention before today, but ive now discovered there is no exposed sub frame under the rear of the seat.

so where are you guys strapping the loop straps?

just looping them under the seat doesnt work well, and i cant figure out how else to attach them securely.

any suggestions?

I have pannier racks and attache the front straps to the front support on the rack since I use the 20 even with the panniers. I then have the CJ design rear plate/rack which has all sorts of slots and I attache the rear straps to that. You don't have to buy the panniers to purchase the mounts and they really are nice for protecting the rear of the bike and help when picking it up or pushing the bike around.

I'll see about getting you some pics.

I use a Sea to summit dry sack more then any other option. but any dry sack would work good and cheap.
one thought, I would not put my wallet in and thing but a closeable/zip pocket jacket or pants.

Once I had a head on and lost my wallet from my back pocket of my 501's and the cop was pissed about it. I was all broken up and he was asking where is it. just thought of losing it on along trip when what ever bag fly's off in Baja Shit happens. well to me
