I think T may be confussed, I have Edge Brackets, they are adjustable, I have never seen the Easy Brackets so I am unsure if they are adjustable or not.  However I can not find anywhere on the Easy Bracket web site that states they are adjustable or not.


Ahhh... yes!!

A thousand pardons... 

After looking at the edge brackets... those are indeed the one I have.  They were ordered by Tejas so, I guess I was confused.

Sorry.....

Thanks for clearing that up, T and Bill. I'll sleep better tonight.  ;D

Yes. Easy Brackets.   I think T and Bill both posted links for it.

I just type "EZ" sometimes because it's EZer, but this time I think it just made things more difficult.

Kind of like you would never search for "SAC".
Yeah . They did. Thats what i kept pullin up ;D   Had me confused.
Some prefer medicine. I prefer my Raider.

Whew!  I thought I was losing it.  I didn't think Easy (not EZ) Brackets had adjustable brackets.

I know nothing about Edge Brackets. How are they in comparison?

Good question...
I have the Edge Bracket so... that's all I can speak to.
As I said... they're adjustable.  And strong.  I've had no issues with them.

I love them, they come on and off I am sure just as easy as the easy brackets.  They are adjustable front to rear so you can get any placement you want or need.  The easy brackets are thinner 12 gauge vs 10 gauge for the Edge.  Easy Bracket says "Also the question has been asked why they use 10 gauge materials in lieu of 12 gauge material. Possibly due to the lack of structural integrity of their bracket!"  There is no lack of structual integrity in the Edge Brackets, they are solid as a rock when they are on the bike so I have no idea what they are referring to there.

I guess "comparison" was the wrong word to use.  I should've just said give your opinion, which you guys did. Thanks!

I received the Mutazu Matte Black FY Hard Saddlebags for my wife's Stryker yesterday.  I only took one out to compare and they're much smaller than expected, but I think they'll look good and allow her to carry the few things she needs to. 

They definitely have a plastic feel to them and I think the lid is going to rattle, but we can always add some padding and line them and anything else. 

I have to say Mutazu seems like a good company.  I've talked to a person over the phone and through email (could be the same person) and each time was trreated very pleasantly and was given all of the information I asked.  I ordered the bags on Friday and received them on Wednesday night, so they're not screwing around.  They were packed extremely well too.   

Now I just have to hope my wife likes them.  The matte black looks god against her Stryker.  I thought it would.
