yea, i'll probably go that route, although what confused was the two straps that come with it appear to be useless. I figured i was missing something

I also have this bag, I bought the tie downs too attach it to the bike. In this picture

you see the tie downs, but these are ok, not great, any small tie down will work. Hope this helps.

 

edit: I believe the small straps are for mounting to the bike, but im not sure if i would trust them, they mount in the D- rings on the bottome of the bag.

I have the bag and use Helen 2 Wheels straps to fasten it down. Straps go through the D-rings, are laced in and out of the bars on the rack and then up and over the bag. Secure at 150+ on the Blackbird.

 

Whatever you finally decide, please, please, do not use bungee cords to hold a large duffle like this as your only means of tie down. Especially if you are mounting it to a rack. One look at the end connection on the average bungee and you'll understand.

 

When I tie mine down, I sometimes will throw a bungee net over top of the whole thing as a belt and suspenders thing, but I would never rely on bungees alone to hold anything more substantial than a paperback book.
