High price and almost worth it.
The tank on my bike has some plastic covers and slopes down to the seat quickly so there are not a lot of options for tank bags from what I could tell. I considered the tank ring quick lock/release from Givi and sw-motech but didn't like their appearance. I love the way this bag looks on my bike, I like the straps but think for the money ALL the straps should be quick release and have velcro on the ends to secure them from the wind. Otherwise it stays put, holds a lot, and has several options for maps, phone, gps, mounting. If you get this bag unwrap the cool dayglo rain cover before you have to use it. It takes about 10minutes because it sticks together. I hope not everytime.

Alpinestars puts out another great product!
I am more than pleased with this tank bag. The quality is top notch. It has plenty of room to fit all my gear. I think the product was a little pricey compared to other tank bags but for the size and quality I feel it was definitely worth the investment. My only gripe would be that I wish the magnets were a little stronger. Part of this is due to the tank shape on my 2014 Monster 1200S. The tank has a lot of angles to it. For short trips I trust the magnets but if I'm heading out on the highway I use the straps which are very easy to attach.

Solid product
Good product, it'll fit a face shield and maybe a half helmet depending on size. The expansion doesn't provide nearly as much as you would hope for though. The magnets provide a good, secure adhesion to the bike as well. Also a lot of straps if you can't mount magnetically.

My biggest problem(s) with this bag is that the contact points for the magnets do scratch your tank. Or at least they do on my Harley with denim black paint. The bag is also doesn't provide the amount of storage I was expecting that is usable. It'll fit a faceshield, gloves, bottles of water, and other loose ends. But if you're expecting to fit a waterproof riding jacket or something bulky it may be a stretch.

Good bag but zippers break
I don't know if I just got a lemon or what but I have had FOUR zippers break on this bag. The metal pull literally just breaks into pieces when you pull it (and I'm not pulling it hard or anything), rendering the zipper useless. I could see maybe one breaking, but FOUR?! Alpinestars replaced the zippers after 2 broke but then 2 more broke a week after I got it back. Very disappointed in the lack of quality for such a premium bag. Otherwise the bag is roomy and versatile and I had no complaints. I just wish I could use it, but I can't even zip up the main compartment now. Will look at other brands next time.

I've been using an Osprey commuting backpack for way too long -- it's dangerous for me to be bearing a laptop on my back in case of a moto accident! This bag - although pretty pricey - has certain features I need: fit my 13" Mac Book Pro with Retina; has raincover, backpack straps, portable base, straps for non-metal tanks, a style that would work with both my sportbike and my naked bike; colors are good. The bungee on the bottom is a nice addition too.

Is the window for GPS touch sensitive, that is could you operate an iPhone through it? If so that would be really handy since I use the iPhone as my GPS but taking it in and out of the pouch to operate would be a hassle (first world problems, I know!).
Richard F on Nov 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I use my iPhone 6 plus with it. (It just barely fits the pocket). The plastic window reduces the sensitivity a bit. So your touches must be more deliberate. I wouldn't want to use my phone all day this way, but i find it's okay for checking traffic during commute. It doesn't work with my touch compatible gloves though. So I still have to take a glove off.
Just two qn..
1) can i put a 15 inch macbook pro..
2) it does seems big.. Is it compatable for any bike..? Iam riding yamaha yzf-r15.. Its a small bike..
A shopper on May 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: That is a sweet bike. Wish we had those here. The tank bag is on the large side. I like it for this and that it has magnets and straps if needed. I have plastic that covers the front of my tank so magnets barely grab but the straps fix that. My tank slopes back rather quick yours looks to be more flat on top which always helps to securely mount a tank bag. 15" MacBook or laptop fits but no larger than that. I would make sure you have some padding under because of bumps and vibrations. If I was carrying a computer I would use a backpack or a tail bag both would be easier on a laptop imo. But if you have passengers a lot tank bag might be the only option. Hope this helps. PK
Hey! Since I can take part of the bag as a backpack with me, is there any kind of security to the part that remains? Or is anyone able to just remove it if intended? Thanks
A shopper on Jan 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There is no security feature. However if the straps are used as described in the instructions, it will take a minute to get it off without cutting the straps.
The piece that stays behind really doesn't look like much and it can't really be used for anything by itself.
I think anyone who would steel it would be just as likely to vandalize the bike some other way. A
I've been looking for a tank bag solution to carry my big dslr (Nikon D3s) and at least my 24-70 lens attached to it (rough dimensions would be 6.5"x8.5"). It would be nice to have room for additional lenses however. Another requirement would be that it has to open towards me so I can stop, open up and shoot on the spot.
Will this bag work for me?
A shopper on Dec 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I was able to fit a D750 with attached 14-24 and still have room on either side of the lens for a 24-70 and one other mid-sized lens. A 70-200 will NOT fit. The bag will open towards you. If you have the body in the back and lens facing towards you, a gripped body like a D3s should fit.
I lsee the quick dis-connect for the straps to the tank bag but how do the straps attach to the bike? I do not see any hardware.
A shopper on May 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The quick disconnect straps are meant to be attach to the frame of the bike and around the front forks however depending on your bike, side panels may need to be removed. The bag however has excellent magnets and hold onto the tank fine without the straps.
With it expanded, can it fit a helmet?
CBR500 on Mar 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Not any helmet I would wear. (maybe one of those bowl helmets)It is a large enough tank bag. I never expand it don't need too but when you do it only raises about a 1" maybe 1 1/2". I think its unsafe to have something so high like some of those long distance travel tank bags between your arms it would bother me. Just my opinion. I ride a ninja 650 which has a more upright position which is very comfortable and dress accordingly but sometimes when its really cold I comfortably lay on the tank bag. I have a higher than stock puig windscreen and all the cold air goes over me. If you need to carry a helmet I have the oxford x30 tailpack in red that when expanded I think you could cram a helmet in there. It looks cool and is a great value. I think it is on sale now for only $104! I have a givi backpack that looks very European and has a special removable cover that holds a helmet no problem. its meant to hold your helmet when off the bike but I think it's sturdy enough for riding a shorter distance. I also have "the kitchen sink "backpack from Oakley that is huge and as it states it will hold everything and the kitchen sink too. Hope this helps.
Could the tank bag be secured just by the magnets, or are the straps necessary for it to stay in place? And is there a way to have the magnets just on the backpack???
A shopper on Jul 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can have a choice of using the magnets or the strips they give you. I ride a Kawasaki ZX6R and I use both strips and the magnets very useful! The space is a bit small but good enough to have 15in laptop, and two big bio text books.
I have a 2014 CBR1000RR, it has a plastic cover that goes over the tank. My question : will the magnets still hold the bag securely to my tank since there will be a layer of plastic in-between the actual metal tank and the bag? Also, how secure will the straps be in regard to the fitment on the bike. Thanks!
Ralph D on Mar 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It seems to me that the magnets won't hold at all if not placed directly on metal.

The bag does however come with an alternative strapping method that wraps around parts of the frame and sub-frame. Honestly, it's a more secure method and all the straps attach to the bag with quick release clips.

I have an 02 R6 and it sits nicely right on top so I can still pull into a half tuck.

Hope I helped ya.
Someone mentions here that an Apple iPhone 6+ barely fits in the GPS pocket. Does anyone know if the slightly larger/wider/thicker Google Nexus 6 could fit too?
elle on Sep 28, 2015
Anyone used this bag on an 899 panigale? Might sound absurd but I am not sure how to get it connected since there is zero exposed frame...
