I’m thinking that its time to purchase a pair of fender bags for my Arctic Cat.
Anyone have a recommendation? Features that you really like to look for or dislike to stay away from?
Thanks
Vic

Vic,

Check out http://www.atvstuff.com/

Just spray anything you get with a waterproofer. Zippers on many bags can go bad so look for a heavy duty zipper.

Vic,
I have a set of these on my quad and my wifes quad. I am happy with them, the reason I went with the mad dog fender bags is they are zipper less. If you look at the Picture you see a water botle holder, I took that off it gets a little crowded in the footwell area. I realy like the extra storage, the only thing that I don't care for is the bags lay on the plastic of the fender area and with the dirt and dust that collect under the bag you end of with some wear/scratches.

Mine are American Trails bags but they sound identical to the Mad Dog's, fold over closure with clips and straps to cinch down.

Very tough bags. Got them at Sportsman's Warehouse in Reno.

Thanks for the replies !
It looks like the Mad Dogs are discontinued, so I will probably try an American Trails bag for one side and a Cabelas bag on the other side for a quick access place to toss my hat etc.
