Everything you’ll want to carry (clothing, tent, food and camping gear), fits neatly within these detailed and cavernous seat bags. Outside there’s a variety of strap systems designed to secure foam sleeping pads and the like. Across the top, D rings laced with mini-bungees are arranged to hold sweaters, road guides, and things you want to keep within immediate reach.
Each end on the medium and large opens for direct loading and inside access. For extra capacity, both ends also expand with gusseted zippers. The medium and large bags also have a removable zippered belt pack attached to one end, and all three have an insulated water bottle holster right where you can reach it. There’s retro-reflective areas, a versatile, secure and fast strap-on mounting system, and useful compression straps so your stuff won’t get bounced around. Not waterproof, but an included raincover stores inside a dedicated compartment.
All of this technology is beautifully sewn with top quality coated nylon fabrics, webbing and other materials. (By a clever optical illusion, this bag won’t look big when mounted on your bike.) The Camping Seat Bag is the world’s most advanced motorcycle pack. It’s an armed F-16 in a field of Cessnas.
Small is black/grey, 8" Top to Bottom × 12" Front to Back ×11.5" Side to Side/16" expanded. Medium is black, 12" Top to Bottom × 12" Front to Back × 15.5" Side to Side/22" expanded. Large is black/grey, 14" Top to Bottom × 14" Front to Back x 21" Side to Side/28" expanded. An Aerostich exclusive.Seat & Rack Bag Comparison Chart

- Outstanding productReview by Michael
I purchased 2 just last month for an upcoming trip to Colorado. I'm in Colorado now with way more stuff that I thought I could get on a motorcycle.
I ride an FJR. It fits on the rear seat well. It does cover locks for saddlebags so that requires some planning as access is restricted. To adequately secure this bag to your FJR the purchase of some type of rack with tie down points is a good idea.
My wife rides a Concours 14. Much easier to tie down bag on Concours. However, access to saddlebags is restricted here too.
I believe that when bag is not fully expanded you would have access to locks for saddlebags on both bikes.
Bag is not waterproof. But bag is a picture of quality construction. When expanded fully I easily packed business casual clothes for 8 days and shoes with room to spare. Toiletries fit easily in detachable bag on side of bag. Tie downs on bag and net are extremely handy.

- Great bag.Review by Stevo
- Having used a Samsonite duffle for for over 30 yrs, I felt I needed something with a bit more capacity. This bag is huge in comparison and it's numerous features are well worth the money. Forget about using the rain cover if you ride fast, mine ended up flying off and into the rear wheel where it was melted; it works well when parked though. I really love this bag and it's versatility, accessibility and roominess! My brother introduced me to the Motofizz 2 yrs ago,and his has been everywhere without a problem, except the rain cover; his was destroyed by high speeds and winds too. I recommend it for any type of riding; or driving if that's your thing. (Posted on 1/6/15)
- Super NiceReview by Happy Pants
- Most awesome-est bag ever! You should get one even if you don't have a motorcycle. It's that cool. (Posted on 8/24/13)
- Great Travel/Camping BagReview by Bruce M.
Bag has ample room for just about anything you need to pack. Plenty of well placed straps and pockets.
Only negative is the rain cover that is too small to cover the bag when packed! (Posted on 12/21/12)
- MotoFizz BagReview by Gary
- Great bag except only instructions were in Japanese or Chinese. Pictures were just OK to help in mounting. You won't use all connectors supplied if you have a rack. once mounted, only unclip 4 buckles and i'ts off, snap them back together and it's on. No more bungees or cinch straps. Very easy to get into, from the top or each end. (Posted on 10/3/12)
- Great BagReview by Binkleylane
- Just purchaced and used the bag for the first time and I am very pleased with it. Very diverse in every aspect, mounting, storage and features. A well thought out product that fullfills all my needs. (Posted on 9/25/12)
- large moto fittz seat camp bagReview by jim
- Nice bag.I am 6'8" + this bag swallows up my xxxl full coverage helmet, xxt heavy leather jacket + clothes for the weekend and that is with the extensions closed! I recomend this bag.Its limitations are on other reviews which I also agree with. (Posted on 9/13/12)
- Nice!Review by Henry
- I bought this bag for a 5000 mile motocamping trip out west earlier this summer. I especially like the secure mounting system. The thing will not move once cinched down. At the same time it's a snap to remove. One unexpected problem I ran into was when I had the bag fully expanded it blocked my mirrors! I ride a R1150RT and the mirrors are lower. This does not present a problem on handlebar mounted mirrors like on my DL650. So I zipped up the expandable compartments and all was well but it sorta defeated the XL capacity. The rain cover was fairly useless with the camping mat and sleeping bag strapped to the top of the bag (didn't fit over it). Overall though, it was great. (Posted on 8/14/12)
- Just what I was lookin forReview by Dave T.
I can now carry the kitchen sink... I recently bought a larger tent and thicker air mattress that took my Wolfman Beta bag over the top. The Motofizz swallowed all of my gear with nary a burp. Fully extended it fits perfectly across the pillion seat and Vario side cases of my BMW 1200 GS. Because it is deeper than my Wolfman, I have to make sure to load my sleeping pad toward the front of the bag which makes a great lumbar support for long rides.
My only concerns are that the zippers are lighter duty and lack the storm flaps of the Wolfman. There is a compression strap over every zipper that may experience over-load stress, so zipper failure shouldn't be a problem.
Overall a very well designed and built piece of moto kit. (Posted on 5/30/12)
- Great bag for campingReview by Bill
- I purchased this bag to supplement my saddle bags for a camping trip I will be taking this summer for 6 weeks. It mounted perfectly, with lots of options for different bikes (mine is a Suzuki Bergman). It has been well thought out with the extra top entrance for groceries, etc. being a big plus. This bag carries my tent, my cot, my sleeping pad, my ground cloth, and my sleeping bag. I have not yet expanded the two sides, which will then hold rain gear and jackets. The bag unhooks quickly from the seat and reconnects just as fast. The rain cover is a big plus for both weather and security. This bag is a keeper. (Posted on 4/10/12)
- Excellent bike/plane bagReview by Apsco400
- Usd this bag for years before I got a topcase for my Concours14. Recently used the bag again to fly from Ottawa to San Diego. Packed bag on the back of a rented bike to ride PCH #1 up to San Francisco the fly back again. Bag survived well as checked luggage stuffed to the gills with helmet, boots, padded jacket, pants, tank bag, and everything else that could fit. Tie-down points and stitching are great as well. Buy-it. (Posted on 3/9/12)
- Great for long ridesReview by Dyan
- I bought one several years ago and love it. It's a great bag for long trips as it holds everything with easy access without taking it off. I took a 10 day 6500 mile trip a couple of years ago. The bag held all of my gear, clothes, etc. was easy to pull off on the night or two I stayed in a motel and the cover kept the bag and contents dry through two days of hard rain. Worth the money especially if you are like me and take long trips. (Posted on 3/8/12)
- Lives up to the hypeReview by Geno
- Got this bag after reading lots of glowing reviews. Just returned from a 2-week 2500 mile tour of the Southwest on my FJR, with camping and motel stays. My tent, clothing, food, and other camping gear pretty much filled every nook & cranny. Like the others have stated here, the end openings are handy for stashing/retrieving gear without having to open the top cover, and the mounting straps are well thought out. I had read that some folks thought the large bag was too big, and the medium bag was big enough, but I disagree. If you're not packing that much, just keep the end compartments collapsed, and the large is the same size as the medium. If you need the extra room, just expand the ends. Pretty expensive for a duffel bag, but very ruggedly built and should last awhile. (Posted on 2/23/12)
- Great camping bag!Review by James
This bag is terrific! I packed the hell out of it on my first enduro camping trip in which I took everything I thought I would need or use and it work great! The side openings are the best when your're loaded down and/or things are loaded on top of the bag, The bag ties down to both my bikes very easily.
Only con is its not waterproof. But I tool a cargo bungee with me to keep the rain bag attached and not flying off like some said. Didn't rain so didn't need it but I'm sure it would work good. I got the large so my rather large laptop 15" would fit inside without being scrunched. (Posted on 10/4/11)
- Love the bag; the cover, not so muchReview by BaltimoreChromehead
I started a nearly 4 week, around the US trip trying to save some pennies on luggage, so I strapped a couple of dry bags on and away i went. The hassles of loading and unloading on the bike, since they're not purpose-built motorcycle gear, not to mention digging through dry bags to get anything out was a real pain. Within days, I was regretting the decision, especially when I met another rider with the Motofizz on his bike. His raves about it's durability and functionality over nearly a decade's use, and just seeing it in person, sold me. I called Aerostich the next day and had them fedex the bag to where I was going to be, and made the switch.
All my clothes for an extended trip (in variable climate, so you get the picture), tent, sleeping bag, etc etc fit in the bag without strain. the little water bottle holder right next to you is a nice touch, as are the two side pouches. Especially good are the ease of attaching it to my luggage rack, and removing as necessary, all the points to tie things outside (the wet towel, the layer you decide to shed or want easily accessible to add when you get to that mountain pass), the side access doors so you can plan the day and have things at three different easy to reach places, rather than digging through the entire bag, all are working out as advertised.
the one true disappointment is the rain cover. it isnt waterproof. what's the point of that? it's too small to fit over the bag when expanded to its maximum. it's really flimsy and a seam burst the first day i tried to use it. 'nuf said.
one last thing. the instructions for the bag are in Japanese, I think. Aerostich gives a translation of some, but could do better. Then again, easy to get help, if you have time to make a call.
Still, the positives far outweigh any negatives. This was a great purchase. I've heard since making the purchase from others who've had and loved it for years, I hope it works out as well for me over time. (Posted on 8/6/11)
- Big enough for (almost) everythingReview by famousperson
I've used this bag for two extended trips so far, and can see using it far into the future. I am a "maximalist" camper and carry everything but the kitchen sink, including a bunch of books and lots of food. Between the bag, my system bags and a large Ortlieb dry bag, I can be completely self-sufficient for two weeks. Almost. On top of everything I strap my chair and my rain suit (going through one toll booth the attendant asked me, "Why didn't you just bring your car?")
It's easy on, easy off, contents are easily accessible through the zippered ends, and it's plenty rugged enough to survive my man-handling.
It is drizzle-proof but not waterproof in a down pour. Since I need access to the (many) outside attachment points I don't use the raincover, insttead packing what has to stay dry in plastic bags. (Posted on 7/15/11)
- Best Bag I've ever used.Review by Mud Puddle
- This bag was obviously designed and built by someone who has tried to pack a motorcycle for an extended trip. Tons of space, reniforced in the right spot, and the stap system is awsome. Love the cross strap that lets you secure the straps when the bag isn't connected to the bike, does a great job of keeping the loose staps from moving around. This bag is great, and it will last a long time. I've been using it for a year, on and off the bike, and it looks like new. It's worth the money. (Posted on 3/2/11)
- Don't Leave Home Without ItReview by Rick
- I love this bag. I won't go camping without it. It carries all my camping gear and then some. I don't use the rain cover. I double garbage bag everything that I put inside. The construction is excellent; no problems with seams or rivets. I have travelled the high crosswinds of the middle states with no affect. The easy mounting system is great. It is so easy to take off and put on. If you want a great bag for the price this is the bag for you. (Posted on 1/8/11)
- I won't go motocamping without it!Review by Jerry
- I've used my Large MotoFizz Seat Bag for four years on every camping trip. I am a maximalist camper and take lots of gear. I'm tough on my gear and this bag has put up with all the abuse I can dish out. The Kermit chair lies flat on the bottom without expanding the sides. I mount it the wrong way - lengthwise front-to-back, and that's for one-up riding only, of course. It has an abundance of D-rings and tie-offs, but I've found that if you use them all, you'll defeat what is for me one of the bag's best features. The two side flaps and huge top opening make it very easy to reach in from any angle to get just what I need, but if I tie gear to certain points, I'd have to remove that stuff to open the bag. That's not a problem - I just use the ones that don't hinder access. The other "best feature" for me is the ease with which it attaches and detaches. If I have to get all the gear off to go into a hotel (sometimes you just have to have a bed and a shower) or to hike in to my campsite, there are no bungees or ropes or other complicated issues to deal with. I just pop four buckles and toss the bag, with all attached gear, up on my shoulder and walk off with it. Note that the side openings have straps which hold the door open at any angle, and there is a mesh pocket inside the door. I like to keep an atlas in the mesh pocket on one side. When I open the door, it lies flat and makes a great table for the atlas. The large size may be too big for many people, especially if you are a minimalist camper. Most can get along with a medium, but I use every bit of room in my large, and I'm convinced that there is not another bag that will do what this one does for me. (Posted on 11/27/10)
- Great if it lasts...Review by Glenn J
- I love this bag! It holds everything and has been a great alternative to a top case or tail rack on my ST 1300. I do worry about the construction though. Two of the rope like zipper pulls on my bag were actually sewn into near-by seams and had to be cut apart to be used. Also, the first time I picked it up loaded (20-30 lbs) by the suitcase handle the fabric pulled through the rivet. I called and the Aerostich rep said since they were the only US supplier they can do repairs to the bag. However, she was vauge about the duration of this service. If it holds up it would be well worth the price. (Posted on 11/22/10)
