The instructions say it takes two minutes to install.
Yeah, I could have done it in two minutes. But it would have been sloppy.
It takes time to carefully align a strip of velcro an inch wide and 3 feet long. I took the seat out to help.
Then it takes a few more minutes to wrap the straps around the roll cage and tuck the ends in with a screwdriver.
But it's a really easy install.

The product costs $59.99, and in my opinion, it is worth every penny.
Yes, I could have bought a couple of canvas bags from Harbor Freight for $20, maybe popped some rivets through some straps and mounted that behind the seat - but by the time I had done all of that shopping, cutting, riveting, etc, it would have cost me a lot more in time, and it would not fit as well or look as nice.

In my opinion, the trail bag is a MUST HAVE for the ACE.
I've already stowed my registration, spare fused, tool bag, and user's manual in there.
Tons of room for more crap.

I also have this bag and find it useful. would be much better if it was 3-4 inches thicker. wasted space between bag and seat

Interesting, I had thought that it was very thin, like paper thin, but looks to be apx 2-3" ?? wide??

I'll be getting one, nice... thanks...

I have one, and the side bags and top bag. These are not waterproof. Be sure to remove them when washing the Ace. And be sure to protect your tools.
I keep a long tow rope, tools, bug spray, serrated rescue knife and ratchet straps in the rear bag. I keep sunglasses, paperwork(in a vacuum packed bag), winch controls, phone and GPS charger and toilet paper(in a ziplock) in the overhead bag.
Side bags are for things I need for the day. I usually keep them empty and use only when needed.

Do you have pics of the back? Thinking about getting one but I'm curious to what it looks like from behind. Thanks for the review!

From the back its just a flat piece of canvas, hanging under the bar. Does not interfere with the rear window. I don't have a pic.

You can see the bag mounting through the rear dust shield. It wraps around the rear cross member of the roll cage. The bag itself hangs down below the cross member. The only thing really visible is the white Polaris lettering that is stitched into the bag. If you look closely, you can see where the edge of the bag mounting cloth is near the fire extinguisher on the right. As Scoundrel says, it does not interfere with visibility at all.

Kinda gives it a finished look from the back. I think I'm gonna order one. You can never have too much storage space :)

I added the rear bag and side bags and think they will be really convenient on the trail. The side bags each have two pockets, which is great for separating things into what you might need frequently and what you'll need occasionally.

Some of the Polaris accessories are well though out and worth the price, but others are really disappointing. I think these bags fall into the former category.

Just a FYI for anyone who has a 900 and wants to get one of these bags. Don't. Or hold off until Popo comes up with a better fitting bag for the 900. There is a big difference between the 330/570 cab to trunk plastic then there is with the 900. A lot of things needed to engineered different to shoehorn the 900 engine in there. So the plastics got raised into the area where the bag naturally hangs on the 570. Mine ends up hanging at an angle into the cab and gets wedged behind the seat. Really looks awful. And scrunched in the way it does, I can only imagine that it potentially holds a lot less of whatever would fit into those tiny pockets...tee shirts or candy bars maybe.

Nobody has mentioned the heat....That area gets pretty darn warm on my 325, (even my seatback gets warm after a longer ride). Doesn't this bag hang right there so does it get overly warm?

I have the full harness, which is attached to the cross member with two straps. Do you think I would be able to mount this bag, maybe with some slight modifications?

I like it!
I have been thinking of adding these.
Currently I have a pair of upper door bags, but that's for small stuff mainly.
