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.

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.

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.

A shopper asked: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..May 31, 2014
Paul K: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. PKJun 1, 2014
A S:Hey PK, thx for ur reply... I realy realy enjoy riding without any weight hanging on my body. Like a bagpack. You know what i mean... This is the reason why i wanna get a tank bag that fits a 15" macbook. Currently i am using a smaller tank bag that fits an ipad rather than my macbook. I gotta actually mount the macbook on top and strap it with the raincoat cover which was originally meant for the bag . I kinda found a way to safely secure it without even getting wet. I could always use my car.. That solves all the problem.. But you know.. I love my bike.. Haha..
I can solve the padding issue for the macbook. Thats not a problem. I was only worried could it actually fit into my bike model. And it seems like i will be getting myself this cool tank bag. I realy love it.. Can't wait..Jun 11, 2014
Barrie L: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.May 29, 2014
Paul K: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.Mar 23, 2014
Barrie L:Hi Joseph, Apologies for the late reply. Unfortunately Not, However this Bag is Extremely versatile and Fantastic as just a smaller tank bag for day trips and could even be used as an accessory on multi-day trips.Mar 25, 2014
