EXFIL-18 Saddlebags Black



Introducing the latest in our line of EXFIL motorcycle gear. The new EXFIL-18’s visual similarity to our decade old EXFIL-7 design is no accident. This new set of saddlebags handles business with the same smart design and rugged construction as every bag in our moto luggage arsenal. As its name implies, each EXFIL-18 saddlebag holds three six-packs of 12-ounce cans. Like our EXFIL-36, EXFIL-18 saddlebags are a universal fit system that hangs under the seat and over the rear fender on an easy-to-install yoke with Velcro adjustment.

Technical Details

  • UV-treated 1680-denier ballistic nylon exterior resists moisture and fading
  • Strong, flexible EVA foam panels inside main compartment add structure and durability
  • MOLLE system on exterior provides options for attaching accessories and extra gear
  • One main and two secondary compartments are secured with rustproof nylon zippers
  • High-vis orange interior lining makes spotting contents easier
  • Two-piece mounting yoke with adjustable Velcro panel fastens to both bags with extra-large, heavy-duty nylon zippers
  • Universal fit—works great with a wide variety of aftermarket saddlebag supports
  • Multiple D-rings and MOLLE points on bag exterior provide options for carabiners, bungee cords, etc.
  • Hidden cable port into main compartment—perfect for charging devices
  • Waterproof nylon rain covers with elastic gathers and drawstring closure provide extra protection in extreme conditions

    Form and Function

    EXFIL-18 saddlebags are just the right size for daily use. UV-treated to last thousands of hours in the harsh sun and built with mil-spec quality materials. Of course they come with waterproof covers and the bright orange interior that makes finding your stuff easier. These bags are universal-fit, but keep in mind you’ll need to add some generic saddlebag mounts for your particular bike to keep the bags away from your rear wheel. The compact size (13.5” wide by 8.75” tall x 7.5” deep) fits on most bikes without relocating the turn signals, but make sure to measure your motorcycle first!

    Installation note: Motorcycle exhaust is super hot! If your exhaust exits directly into or under these bags, even though the bottoms are reinforced with heat-resistant material, there is a chance it can scorch the bag or melt the contents inside. Rain covers melt or catch fire easier than the ballistic nylon due to the rubber coating that makes them waterproof, so please keep that in mind. Also, if you install the bags empty, check them again after you’ve loaded them with gear. You may need to adjust the yoke or other parts of your mounting procedure to keep the bags away from exhaust heat. It’s a good idea to check all luggage every time you stop, just to make sure things haven’t shifted while you were riding.

    Perfect Size

    Bought this for my 2020 FXBB because I needed bags for a trip and they were the exact size that I needed. Not too large but it had enough space for all the things I needed. The zippers feel well made and the bag was sturdy enough to hold all the tools I had without the stitching ripping. Great bags.

    Solid bags

    I have many biltwell bags and these are made as solid as all of the others. Can’t go wrong with any of them.

    Amazing Quality!

    Had a few questions and they were answered in no time at all. Fits great on my 2009 Dyna. I ordered some support brackets from drag specialties and the whole set up is exactly what I wanted.

    Great quality!

    I put these on my SR400 and they have been excellent! Everything about these bags is well thought out and high-quality. The large lip over the main zipper is a great design.

    Indian Scout Bobber

    Finding and fitting universal saddlebag mounts for the Indian Scout Bobber was a nightmare, but the bags themselves are fantastic. The aftermarket option made by Indian costs around the same price and only offers one bag with half the storage as one of the Exfil bags. Easy choice.
