Aftermarket stretched bags and audio lids

On the high end extended bags a lot of people here, at CVO and HDForums are going to tell you Bad Dad, Top Shop and Sinister.

Some of us either don't have the budget or the willingness to spend $900 to $1200 on a set of bags and have opted for, or are opting for cheaper alternatives like Mutazu, Fairing Factory or V-Twin.
Swomack (an active regular member here) recently purchased extended bags and lids from Mutazu and he has been swearing that they are great bags. Based on his recommendation I've gone out on a limb and ordered the same just a few moments ago (karma I guess )

As for lids, about all of the above have an option, but in addition I've reads lots of positive things about the Hogtunes 6x9 speaker lids, so you might want to check them out as well.

Good luck. I've been kicking this around for well over a year now...............

These bags are great.

Thicker and more ridged then I would have thought.

The vivid black paint was a perfect match.

All the OEM hardware went right in like factory.

Before I put them on my bike I hit them with a polish paste and a finishing foam buffing pad on my power buffer.

The paint is also way better then I would have thought.

My thoughts were if the paint wasn't to my liking, I would just have them repainted, but that wasn't the case, the paint buffed out real nice. for the price I feel like I stole them for what I paid.

I try to make the most out of my cash without buying something I'm not going to be happy with.

For me these 4.5" extended hardbags were a no brainer.

The extra storage and the look I was going for.

Another good thing is if there is any kind of issues with what you receive, just call up Gina and she will work things out to make everything right.

I went with the top shop viper bags last year, more than happy with them. I just installed the hogtunes 6x9 lids and no complaints with the lids. I didn't care for the wiring they sent.
Only real issue I noticed is with the 6x9 speakers when you open the lid the magnet drags on the top of the bag seal area. Not a big deal as it can't be seen when closed. These are not hogtune speakers, they are a set of HAT speakers I got from sloride.

I just came across these bags and lids. I don"t know much about them but the nice part is you can get them color matched for a little extra cost.
I'm thinking of giving them a shot.

I have Top Shop bags with Bad Dad lids and my speakers (Pioneer) drag also.
