What's the best tail bag for the Scrambler is like asking how long is a pice of string.
The answer depends on what you want the tail bag for. A 10 litre Kriega may be a brilliant piece of kit, but utterly useless if you're planning on using it for a weeks ride and you're camping. Similarly, a 50 litre Lomo dry bag isn't much use if you just want to carry your lunch to work each day, but a great value bag for the size.
There are a lot of bags out there that fit well on the Scrambler seat, and ROK straps a great way to secure them, but be sure to strap them to the closed part of the rear subframe and not the open part by the rear lamp as they'll slide off and you'll lose your bag.
If you add a rear rack, your bag options open up even wider, plus you have the option of mounting it lengthways to keep the bike slim.
