I'm using Kriega's 10 litre bag, perfect for a few things, although I put it sideways, otherwise it eats up too much space

I'm using the wolfman 'wolftail' tailbag. in fact I am flying with it to San Jose tis Friday to pick up my bike from Corbin. The only thing I'd be worried about on the classic seat is damaging the piping visually with the cords/straps. Other than that the bag fits well and lets me change my riding position a bit as I can lean back against the bag. It took some of the pressure off of my tailbone as I rode it all the way up to Monterey for Corbin to pick up. There aren't places to hook it up pre say so I just crossed braced the straps and hooked them onto themselves.
For me, cost is priority 1 and not the amount of function. So I made this work for me for my laguna seca trips from san diego. If it didn't fit, I just didn't bring it! I still brought a backpack.
If money is no object, like it seems a lot of folks on the forum are coming from, then I'd move on.
Below is the link for it from wolfman. I picked it up from revzilla for $89.99 one yr ago. They don't have it anymore, but maybe they'll get it again.

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.

Lomo motorcycle 40l bag.

Just need a few straps to fit and it only costs £11-14 (20ish dollars) and it's completely waterproof (can even go diving with it)

I use the Kriega US 10 and its maybe a couple of cms too long length ways but you can live with it, so I imagine the US 20 would be worse.

There is a guy on the other forum that mounted a Kriega US30 bag. See link below. It did hang over, but it was full and stiff so did not block the taillight. This is probably a little too big for everyday use.

I ordered a US20 last night and will report on fit when it arrives. I do plan on installing the DM tail rack, so it should expand my options.

I'd use a red 30L dry bag I picked up in Thailand a couple of years ago. It's heavy duty and can be strapped on lengthways with ROK straps if you have a rack.

I plan on picking up some Kriega bags in the future. In the meantime for daily commuting, the Ogio tail bag is working well. I just have to redo the straps so I can move it back an inch.

Kreiga is an excellent choice but I decided to go with the Scrambler seat bag.

Yes, it's not the best looking, and I don't appreciate having "Scrambler" written on it, but: it fits perfectly, is water proof, has a large capacity and is reasonably priced.

I am satisfied with the purchase.

Besides, who says we need only one seat bag? �� I may also get a Kreiga for different purposes. As well as additional luggage for longer trips.

Pic of Ogio Tail bag. If I could reduce the length by about 1.5 inches, it would be perfect. Find myself seating on the edge of the bag. Seriously thinking about a tail rack.

For touring, I may add a 20 L Kriega on the tank.Make myself a comfortable pillow.
