IIRC it's a tour master soft case with semi-rigid sides, top and bottom, the sides have additional pockets and will expand outward a few inches to accommodate additional bulk in the main compartment. It's secured to the aux mounting pegs on the rear (front and back) by removable QR straps. Cost me about 140 bucks.

It's not huge but large enough i've been able to pack away lunch and some additional basic road kit items like: chain lube, tire gage, air compressor, spare gloves. The exterior is semi-water resistant but it comes with water proof cover that fits over the top to keep moisture out. I would recommend treating the exterior with some waterproofing spray just to be safe. So far, it's withstood hundreds of miles of abuse in various weather conditions. The waterproof cover is stored in a dedicated compartment on the backside of the case.
The straps have a pad on one side to prevent them from chafing the paint.

This is the softcase I really want (For long trips):
Wolfman Boulder Beta Bag - ADV Pulse has a nice comparison write up on high capacity soft bags.

It is a substantial investment (480 bucks) but worth it IMO, they are built to last.

The low slung CTX exhaust means CTX riders have a fair amount of flexibility on what luggage we can fit on the bike. The wolfman beta bag has 60 liters of capacity, includes individual water proof Hi-Viz internal bags for compartmentalization. The exterior of the wolf bag is water resistant with a waterproof cover over the top like the Tourmaster bag I currently use. If you have a Givi top case this fits neatly between the rider and the hard case, assuming your not doing a two-up trip. Wolfman makes excellent bags but if you're looking for a cheap-ish quicky, that bag I currently use can potentially fit a small road kit plus a substantial picnic (wine bottle(s), food stuffs etc) then go that route.
I'll include a link for it later when I find it.

JH700CTX, for that price, seems to me it would be better going with some hard saddlebags.

As far as finding the perfect carry bag to fit between the rear case and rider, just about any kind of duffel or soft carry on bag will work. Be creative. Just secure with a cargo net or bungee straps. I found the perfect one that fits my purposes at Walmart. It has a round/ tubular shape, holds 55 liters, water resistant, and doubles as a backrest when stuffed full. Paid $26.00.

For me, the master plan is to have a full set of cases, Givi mono-key topcase, side cases and most likely the beta bag for long 400+ mile multi-day touring, most likely camping outdoors is going to be part of the plan too. I want to hit places like Crater Lake, Mt Hood and other destinations.

Just installed my Denali SoundBomb airhorn this weekend, and absolutely love it. It definitely blows the stock "Road Runner",
"meep-meep" horn out of the water.
