i was thinking of what type would be best for me if i am needing a saddle for the heavy gear usage. would it be the sissy bar bag or would it be the tank bags or some other. and should i use the hard saddle bag necessarily or can i also use the soft bags if i have a usage of heavy gear. the "real bikers" help is needed here

Hard bags are far more expensive and far nicer. Soft bags, even ones with hard plastic "frames" inside and metal support frames behind them, eventually sag. Most I've seen are far from waterproof as well.

The more weight you put in them, the more soft bags will sag & flop, & they offer virtually no theft protection for the contents. This is an important consideration if you must walk away from your bike for any reason.

Not sure what you mean by heavy duty. The normal bag made for most cruisers won't take a lot of weight no matter what type it is.

Touratech style made for the adventure set would be best for very heavy use. These are metal. Maybe there are cruiser mounts out there for these. Wouldn't be surprised if there were some for Harley. yeah
