    Very brilliant product. Superb built quality. Very rough and tough. I had doubts about it fitting on my fz25 pillion seat but it did fit very well. Have to tighten once in a while but no big deal. Overall very good product. Side pockets are big enough to fit 5 ltr Jerry can. Lot of space in main compartment to carry all your stuff. Saves a lot time during tours regarding loading and unloading from motorcycle and trust me it’s a big relief. A big thumbs up for Claw?

    Thanks to all of you at Viaterra for this awesome product. The Claw is just awesome for a 7day ride. This fixes well to your bike and the quality of the bag is just awesome.
    If you are looking for a good quality saddle bag look nowhere but here only.
    The only problem is the availability.
    Thanks again

      Thank you so much for your kind words. The reason for unavailability in the last few months was because we have shifted our office and the manufacturing unit to a new city which has slowed our production for all the right reasons. We are doing our best to get back to business as usual in few months.

    I purchased directly from vaterra (big mistake). The unit they supplied, the finish is simply unacceptable. After filling the bag it is crumpled and due to faulty switching, tension is very high in certain points, i believe the bag is going to tear from those points. Replacement is big issue, i have to satisfy them about the making issue of the unit. Place is ample. Zippers are good. 5ltr jerrican not yet tried. Fixing the bag is simple, one may consider using two bungees also to make the bag absolutely fix, rain cover looks good. If you need to purchase vaterra purchase from their shops/dealers or from amazon.
