    Great material Quality and workmanship. Seems very useful product for bike touring..

  2. 5 out of 5


    Absolutely five star fit and finish.

    I am using it on BMW 310 GS and it is a awesome product. The unique u shape design gives it a snug fit and a large capacity of 62 ltr.

    The claw is very rugged with pockets for all the utility items that you need for a long bike ride.

    Fuel can of 5 ltr can easily fit on side pockets.

    You can easily carry your claw off the bike with given shoulder straps.

    3 M reflective tapes are adequately used to make the bag visible.

    Raincover provided is of good quality.

    A must for any biker who is looking for a soft utility saddle bag with large capacity and rugged ruff and tuff material.

    Best in class.
    Whatta product. Absolutely loved every bit of it. The fit on bike, the quality of the product, the finishing, after sale service… everything is top notch. I have fixed the bag and travelled for 793 kms on a single day and the bag didn’t even tilt an inch. Fitting is easy and beautiful. Capacity is great. And a commendable after sale service. Never expected the service to be so good. Kudos Viaterra.
    Using it on my 2018 Dominar 400.

    A little background –

    When i was new to the biking scene, i had borrowed a friend’s Claw for touring. It was brilliant and when i tried to buy one for myself, it wasn’t in stock. So i bought an alternative product from a different brand. After one trip, it made me furious because of the kind of trouble i had to go through.

    So I had interacted with Alex and Ajinkya from Viaterra who were very helpful in letting me know when the stocks arrived. I immediately purchased it and have no regrets at all. Apart from one, which is bothering to try another company.

    The review –
    Pros –
    -More than ample space for a 15 day trip.
    -Multiple compartments for storing the stuff easily.
    -Really REALLY stable on the pillion seat, you need to know how to affix it, and it stays rock solid.
    -Fully waterproof – Rode through Meghalaya’s torrential downpour as well as through snow in Ladakh. No seeping at all
    -Excellent build quality – I’ve suffered a fall too while the bag was on the bike. It did not suffer more than a few scratches.

    Cons – (I guess only for the sake of it)
    -Difficult to carry if the bag is full and you’re a small guy.
    -Cannot have a pillion (You need to consider if traveling is more important or your girlfriend)
    -Friends keep borrowing it so it gets pretty brutally used.

    Functional and reliable are two words that can be used to describe this product.
    Great fit and finish of the product and reliable service from the brand.
    I’m very satisfied with the design because of how easily you can just put it on and off the bike.
    Also the additional dirt cover helps keep the bag clean too.
    All in all very satisfied.
    Using the product for RE Thunderbird 500 and RE interceptor.

    Had purchased Claw bag last year and used on my Ninja 1000 on my first ride of 2000kms and had some issue with material.
    Same was emailed to Viaterra and got connected with Ajinkya.
    Promptly the bag was picked up and taken care of ..damaged parts were replaced and repaired free of cost and bag was back new .
    Again on my 2nd ride 2000kms ,strap buckle sheared and had sustained few damages.Once again Mr Ajinkya was contacted and the bag was picked up and I was advised that they will be getting a new bag delivered after manufacturing as I had questioned my old bags material and age.
    A brand new fresh bag was delivered, though a nominal charge amounting to 1700 was charged
    Fantastic service by Ajinkya and Viaterra .
    Thanks a lot.

    I used this claw bag in my goa ride and I covered 2500km with this claw bag. It fits like anything in my Himalayan.
    Excellent built-in quality and easy mounting, very comfortable to handle.
    Also I used claw bag with Pillion ride in my Himalayan and it is more comfortable.

  10. 4 out of 5


    I got this in 2018 and have used it on a number of trips. Never let me down.

    Didnt get the inner liner when I bought mine but will be buying one separately.

    Fitting is easy and helps as a back rest too. Cant take a pillion but that’s ok, I never do 🙂

    Dont think about it, just go for it. You wont regret it.

  11. 5 out of 5


    I have been using this bag since 2017 three years and not even a small issue. I was recommended by Alex from viaterra to use this bag for my duke 390. He told me it’s a universal bag and can be used in any bike .

    I took his recommendation and brought it. Till date never regretted.
    I have been always a loyal customer with this brand i even picked up the full gauntlet gloves from viaterra and no complaints.
    I would be glad if you come up with quality mobile holder. As the Rynox one is third class . Almost lost my phone on the ride ..
    Keep it up viaterra i will look forward to innovative products from your end in near future

    • Alex Joseph

      Hey Joydeep,
      We swear by RAM mounts for mobile mounts and that has never failed on us. So don’t intend to look else were. We want to try the Quad Lock system too since that locks promising, but didn’t get a chance to do that yet.

    After weeks of research which only resulted in more confusion, I settled for the Claw.
    Viaterra caught my eye cause of its Indian roots so I went for it – bated breath.

    When i received the product i was pleasantly surprised by its quality. When i started using it for short rides, i was floored.
    Quality, fit and finish are indeed top notch.
    The bag holds its shape even if not packed to capacity.
    5L cans of fuel fit perfectly on either side pockets but you need to make sure weight distr is even if you’re carrying only one filled can.
    What I also loved was that there was a specific place for everything a rider may carry. Further, the capacity is more than adequate for single rider long haul or dual rider short haul. You really wont need any other luggage (maybe a tank bag for ride essentials).
    The compact snug fit maintains ride agility giving you greater confidence on Indian roads.
    Suitable mounting of the Claw make it an excellent back rest for the rider.
    It rained in one of the rides and I had not put on the rain cover but the bag held up just fine. No seepage even through the zips.

    What i would have liked are more loops/buckles placed around the bag as bonus to secure bungees or cords apart for straps already provided. It just gives more flexibility to secure or append additional gear though i didn’t need them for short rides.

    Thanks to Viaterra for gave a very good quality product and 5 litter side pockets are very supportive for long rides. Also product and service follow up is excellent.

    Hi I am waiting to purchase this product as I looking for more than 35liters capacity. I tried to check other websites but almost all the websites were mentioning out of stock. Could you please help me in providing when this will be available.

    I order this bag for my Interceptor 650 which fits perfectly fine considering the exhaust . I loved the quality and material of the product. Considering other options like saddle or box , tried different luggage variants and finally concluded with this bag. The straps and zips are of good quality with the pipes that gives stability for whole structure of bag. Best Buy and a happy user 😊

    I’ve been using this tailbag since 2013, to precise 29-Jan-2013 & should’ve clocked atleast 60000 Km (sixty thousand) using this tailbag. There’s only one complaint you’re going to have with this product – you have to throw, donate or gift this tail bag to buy a new one, otherwise, this is one single tailbag that will probably outrun your motorcycle. I’ve even carried nearly all parts of Yamaha Rx100’s engine for over 500+ Km to laptop ranging from 2 days to 14 days road trip from 300 Km to 2767 Km!! All you need to do is dump everything into this bag, tie it down & remember it only when you need to pull out something from the tailbag. Thing WILL BE THERE FOR SURE.

    After so much of research for my ladakh ride I was looking for a bag that I should be 100% sure and comfortable with. I found out claw Is the best product one should buy.
    When I received the product I was really happy with the type of material and quality of the bag. I think it’s viaterra the only one who is giving Jerry can pockets. So if you are going to places like ladakh then you should go with this one. Quality is good with 100% waterproof liner and rain cover. Bag is tuff and usefull. It will be pleasure if you gift me a coupon so tht I can buy some other product of viaterra . 😊

  22. 4 out of 5


    The quality of this material is very good and It can be very useful for long distance travel ,
    useful for keeping you on a six- to ten-day tour ,
    this company service and customer communications also very good ,,, 😀

    Amazeing bag ,best claw bag in india ,great material ,great design , please mention it is 62 liters ,please re-launch claw pro ,proper belts ,nice customer support.

  24. 5 out of 5


    I bought the Claw about 2 years ago, and have used it on both my Street Triple as well as D-390 on tours ranging up to 4 days trips…. Its a superlative product, and fixing it up was quick and easy! I though did use Bungee cords to tie the Claw down.

    The only suggestion I have had for the Claw was, that the Claw should come with a bottom side raincover as well, as it saves the bag from the bottom side as well!

    VIATERRA would request you to consider my above suggestion!

    I intend, God willing, to do a Leh Ladakh trip next year, and I will know exactly how the full utility of the Claw comes into effect!

    Best wishes to the VIATERRA team! Ajinkya, thanks for all the help and advice!!

    This is the best product one can get at this price.
    The build quality is far superior to any other tail bag available in the market. The colours, finishing, stitching of this bag is too good.
    Plenty of space to carry your stuff.
    Fits on Himalayan perfectly. Going to use this for my upcoming ride to Spiti.

  26. 5 out of 5


    Starting off customer
    support, I was quite amazed to get a phone call from these guys. They confirmed the order and the motorcycle for which it was intended. I guess that ticks off customer support which is great.
    Next up delivery time and packaging, on point and sweet.
    Unboxing was a smooth and bag looks and feels premium. The stitches, contours, reinforcements, tags, straps/belts are all very well done.
    Spacious enough for a fortnight. Comes with mounting instructions so that’s a breeze.
    Honestly this was first ever viaterra product and I’m glad it worked out! Cheers 🍻

    Vaiteera product is awesome as well as the full value of money. I heard multiple times quality of the product is too good. My friends are using vaiterra tail bags for riding. I also recommend the vaiterra tail bag. This will make your trip more comfortable and convenient, so you will be able to enjoy your bike ride without any hassle.

    The bag is simply superb.. Initially i had some doubts while purchasing the same like will this suits for my CB350,wil it hold, will it worth for 4k, or to go for rynox like that.. but after using it for 3 rides(80km each), i can say my decision is correct.. quality is great..Fits perfectly…Only think I don’t like is that white cover which is difficult to put on…

    I am using on my interceptor bike I did my Ladakh trip with this bag it was fantastic and fully waterproof

  35. 5 out of 5


    Reviewing after a 1000km ride during monsoon. I’ve always used saddle bags but now on I’m going to stick to this one.

    – Excellent build quality. Large side pockets and other useful touches.

    – Waterproofing works excellently. The additional muck cover protects the bag from dirt splashes.

    – Convenient to carry.

    – The ‘U’ shaped bottom design makes it work like a semi saddle bag, thereby counter balancing the load and stopping it from shifting to one side.

    – Setting up is very easy with only 3 straps to be tied.

    – Acts as a back support.

    – The zippers can be locked with a small lock & key.

    – I’m able to pack more stuff than my saddle bags. Also, since all stuff is in one bag, no confusion over which item is where. Because no matter what planning we do, things get mixed up during a long ride.

    – Be mindful that entire weight is now in single bag unlike strap-on saddle bags. So get some help to carry it into hotel room after a long ride.

    – It tends to loose it’s shape while packing. But once on the bike, it’s all good.

    Overall, it’s an excellent product for the price. Moreover, being a ViaTerra customer for many years, I know I don’t have to contact their customer support for any repairs or warranty issues so easily.

    NOTE:- Many riders are securing the straps to moving components like swing-arm, shock absorbers and foot pegs connected to swing-arm. This will definitely cause excess stress on strap holding D rings causing loosening. Instead, find any part of frame under the seat for securing. Then the straps won’t ever loosen or get under unnecessary stress.
