    Congratulations for your product. I’d searched for a lot of information on the Internet and finally I decided to try
    your product instead of other options. Now I have it, I can say it’s great! The quality is unbeatable, and although there are some small details regarding the usage that could be improved as per my understanding, your product is great! During September I will use it in my ride trip from Hyderabad to Leh. I will test it then.

    I did indeed enjoy some time on the road, or off the road, in this case, in the desert of Southern Utah. I just got pictures from my friend with whom I travelled, and I wanted to share a couple of them with you. My ViaTerra Claw bag held up well on the 3 day trip, despite one stationary fall on the Utah slickrock, and one low-speed but epic crash when I didn’t quite make it up a dual-ledge rocky hill-climb. Oh, and about 500 mL of oil spilled in one side as well when an oil bottle was crushed. So far so good!

    I recently purchased a 696 Ducati Monster for my wife and have been searching for weeks for suitable luggage for a 6 day trip in July. “”Ducati monster luggage”” search found several Indian reviews (one was extremely detailed) plus short reviews from the US. All praised the manufacturing quality, thoughtful details and smart design. Price is very competitive!, Perfect condition! I am very impressed with the quality and design of this luggage- well made and good looking. I couldn’t be happier!.I will definitely recommend. Thanks off the thoughtful follow up.

    ViaTerra Claw on my CBR. Quality and finish is good and fits really well on the bike. This one is half empty. If its packed to the limit, might have difficulty in getting on/off the bike with Jeans on! Otherwise, Love it!

    Claw is the ultimate touring bag which I needed for my R15V2.0, suits well, perfect balance and sack in everything you want to carry. Pics after giving it a 20 km ride, carrying all the stuff.

    4 pairs of pant-shirt, 2 t shirts, towels, shoes , tripod, first aid kit, tool kit(with puncture kit), coolant bottle, 1l engine oil bottle, accelerator/clutch cables, chain cleaner + chain lube(400ml each), bike papers, packing tape, double sided tape, and 2 1 litre bottles for petrol were kept inside CLAW flawlessly for 5500+kms. Amazing product

    Just want to share my review on ViaTerra CLAW on my recent trip to LROK & GROK, GJ from Chennai, TN India in one sentence…
    There’s only one drawback on using CLAW that, once you buy it, you’ll never get a chance to buy, think or even try another tail bag for lifetime!!!
    This tailbag is so damn rugged that, I’d used uneven weight distribution & still the tailbag did an super amazing job. And this trip was for over 7400 Km road trip for 13 days & I absolutely didn’t have to worry about anything on carrying luggage.
    Verdict – If you’re not using Claw, then you’re missing the most reliable tailbag made for motorcycle

    Guys we used your claw and rain covers for our Sikkim ride and trust me they are absolutely amazing. During the ride there was heavy downpour everyday and our bags were bone dry because of the rain covers. Kudos to your products.

    Hey ViaTerra team,
    Thank you for the custom design/modifications on the “”ViaTerra Claw””… it fit my HD Street Bob perfect! and withstood the 13 Chapter Panaroma ride of 10,000 Km in 13 days!
    Oh and not to forget the kinds of weather and a thunderstorm in-between without a drop of water of dust entering it! smile emoticon
    Love the work you guys do, and wish you all the best in the days to come

    ViaTerra Claw, the perfect touring saddle bag till now. Trip to ladakh, spiti and many more yet lingering to my bike.

  14. 5 out of 5


    It’s been 50000+ Km I’ve been using abusing this Claw (includes Claw mini as well but for < 5000 Km) with all sort of abused use in summer & pouring rain & is proving to be as reliable as first use. In fact its got so much reliable these days I don't think about the word ""motorcycle luggage"" any more.
    It has carried all my touring needs & once it had even carried the dismantled essential engine components of Yamaha Rx 135 as well for over 600+ Km
    All said, there's only one concern – Looks like I will be struck with this Claw forever in my life & the durability of this Claw will not permit me to buy another motorcycle luggage
    Thank you for such a fantastic engineering
    Thank you for making such a quality product
    Thank you for such a wonderful product
    And Thank you for offering it as such affordable price

    Brilliant stuff.. bought the Claw and it fits like a glove! Works as a backrest too.. If you carry an extra backpack, it rests in the claw taking away all the load from your back. Love it!

  16. 5 out of 5


    Can pack plenty and it’s comfortable on riding . A Claw to catch 😉

  17. 5 out of 5


    The Claw – used it for the first time. A. Cavernous, B. Fits like a glove on the frame of my Hyosung ST7, C. Quick-On, quick-off straps, and D. Works wonderfully well as a backrest!

    Now make a small tank bag for cruisers which have the instrument cluster on the tank, something which has a GPS transparent pocket, and space for rechargeable battery, USB cable, wallet, cigarettes, lighter, and odds and ends which usually end up in your pockets!

    Have a Claw… It’s the first thing I turn to when I think of a ride.. Worth every penny.. Planning to buy a Fly soon.. 😀

    I used the ViaTerra Claw for a Solo Ride recently. Highly recommended! Looking forward for the Tank Bag.
    Is there an extra star in the rating? ;-). Love it!

    I got the ViaTerra Claw to carry luggage on my R15. Now I am using it on Ninja 300. Have been using it for one and half year. Works flawlessly.

    I bought a Claw around three weeks back. Got to use it on last weekend and I am extremely satisfied with their product. By chance the shoulder strap was missing from the package. I contacted ViaTerra and they shipped on the same day and it got delivered on the next itself. Superb product and superb customer service.

  22. 5 out of 5


    One of the best investments I have made. The Claw has become one of my most essential part on my motorcycle tours!

  23. 5 out of 5


    I got to use the Via terra Claw and the Tank bag on a 5500 kms road trip from Chennai to Leh, it was truly worth it. I was awe struck by its quality and resilience to wear and tear. It did not just make it through the trip, it made the trip itself much more pleasurable and relaxed, cause it added a world of convenience where it came to packing and moving. Cheers. Good Job.

    Its huge. And its sturdily built. The rain cover protects,even after a night of Lushai rain.
    Although for an Fz16,Fazer16, it bends the rear signal lights. But then,there are solutions available.
    Buy it. You wont be disappointed!!!!

  25. 5 out of 5


    Amazing build quality. Have used on multiple bikes, straight exhaust or up-swept it doesn’t matter.
    Easy to mount once you get a hang of it.
    Initially you might feel that it will come loose, but that is not the case. It stays in place be it in the ghats or bad roads, doesn’t move an inch.
    Reflective lining is also helpful at night.
    Its huge in size, so can easily accommodate items for a 10 day trip and some more.

    All in all a great product. Highly recommended.

    Excellent quality and one cannot ask for more. It is THE only bag you will ever need for your motorcycle. With the bag fully packed rain covers seem to run a bit short and are not able to cover the sides completely. This makes the sides of the bag prone to slush/mud coming from the rear tyre during heavy downpours.

      Hi Abhishek, thank you for your feedback. We are working on a few ideas that would keep your belongings totally safe from rains.

  27. 5 out of 5


    I just took it for a 20 day trip to Ladakh and it packed everything I needed – sleeping bag, all bike tools and spares, clothes, medicines, dry rations, chargers etc.

    The best part is that it gives you the much needed backrest on long rides where you are clocking more than 200-300 kms a day.

    It is very stable on the bike and does not move. I used to just once check the straps after doing about 30-40kms to re-adjust and then it would not budge a cm even when I rode off-roads for 50kms at a stretch.

    There are a few suggestions to make this awesome product perform better:

    1. Put a rubberised bottom layer on both outer side-bottoms. This is the only area that catches water splashes and has chances of getting wet.
    2. Make the raincover a bit larger in length and width. I used to cover the bag almost all the time with the raincover. Many of us who tour long need to carry extra baggage over the bag using the two straps given to hook across the bag, hence a larger raincover by a few inches.
    3. Side flaps should ideally overlap the pockets, otherwise a lot of dust and water get in incase you are not using the raincover.

      Thank you for your kind words and suggestions 🙂 We are working on a dry bag concept for giving 100% water protection.

    Sorry the review was long due, First of all i would like to thank the team at Viaterra India for being prompt and professional . The guys mailed me couple of time and if i am not wrong they called me also to confirm that i had received the package in time and undamaged. keep up the good work guys. There were some issues regarding the delivery , but it was the mistake of the speed post guys. I had to actually go to the main post office and find my package. The package was well packed and i received the claw tail bag and the seaty for KTM DUKE 390 in good condition.
    About the product what can i say. Was very unsure of ordering the product at first, did a lot of research and traveled a bit around to see the product, and i was more than impressed at the first look of it. The quality is very good for the price. ( That doesn’t mean you guys should increase the price) Placed the order for a Claw tail bag and a seaty for KTM DUKE 390.
    Till now have used the Claw for one long ride 1500 km round trip from Goa to Coorgh Karnataka and a bit further into Kerala and back to Goa. I took a while to load up the bag onto the bike as had to get the balance and bulk of the things in the bag correct. Best is to use a thick soft cloth under the bag so no damage is done to the paint and all. Took some time to get the tie down points also correct as it was the first time i was using the bag. Once mounted and secured correctly the bag for sure stays in place and doesn’t move much even doing high speeds and during turns. It stays as u have tied it for quite a long time, ( Make sure you get the tie down points correct. ) Which is a very good thing. After about 120 km we stopped for breakfast and that is the time i had to tightened the straps a bit , found the straps a bit slack when i checked for the bag to be secure. This was the case during all the stops. This isn’t a bad thing at all considering we were doing good speeds where the road were good, some places the roads were really bad and the bike would move a lot .
    On the way we got rains but the bag cover did a good job in keeping the bag and the stuff inside dry. Only problem was that the bag was wet from underside because of the water splashing from the rear wheel, and the bag cover doesn’t cover the bag from underside. The bag is just the correct size i needed and holds lot of stuff in it easily. I am a totally satisfied customer, very happy that i decided to get ViaTerra Claw and the seaty . The products being well priced are made well and of good quality materials, the team at Via Terra are prompt and professional, I have already recommended the products to many of my friends and will continue doing so. way to go guys keep up the good work.
