Nomad hard bag dimensions

Anyone have rough overall dimensions for the side opening Nomad style bags? I am ebay shopping for bags, but also considering new aftermarket bags. I want to be certain if I go for aftermarket bags that they are neither too small or too big.

The Nomad bags I feel are some of the best looking OEM bags on metric cruisers. Some of the aftermarket bags look good in the view of the bag, but not the right proportions when on the bike.

Some people mount Harley bags on a VN1600, but I don't like the look, plus I am not trying to make a Harley look-a-like. I especially don't like the oversize bags that extend down and rearward over the exhaust. The smooth curves and proportions of the fuel tank on the VN1600 deserve complimentary lines on the saddlebags to look right.
