Cortech Micro 2.0 Tank Bag
Compact Tank Bag
This is an excellent tank bag and the fit and finish is solid. It's small, sleek and not in-the-way like some of those larger ones. This bag is easy to take on and off when your using the magnets, which is something that I have to keep remembering to do, so no one steals it. The magnets did keep the bag secured while on the freeway and with high winds. I made sure I tested that out before I put my phone and wallet in there.

Great little bag.
Awesome little bag. Got to my house in like three days. It's perfect for little stuff. I bought it because of the phone/gps pouch which is super clear aside from 100% direct sunlight. The pockets inside the bag are perfect for fitting my registration, some emergency money, and garage key. I saw people were concerned about the magnets. They have yet to scratch my tank and require some force to actually pull them off. They do also come with straps to mount.
My only minor concerns were the size of the phone/gps pouch, my gps overheating, and the water proofing.
I own a Galaxy Note 4 and it is more than a little snug fitting into the pouch, especially with a case over it. On a hot day in southern Florida, it would often overheat and shut off mid-ride. I also left my bag outside during work hours and my registration got rained on inside the pockets of the bag. It was a quick fix to just fold it in half and zip-lock the bag. I understand it's not the bag's fault, but if I had to choose something wrong, this would be it.
Would 100% recommend.

Good tank bag, only few minor gripes
This is a very useful tank bag. I typically have it hold my car keys (a big keychain with a lot of keys, pocket knife on it), my wallet, my phone (in the phone pocket) and also a tire pressure gauge. It's not full when it's loaded up with all that stuff, really useful for those of us who ride supersports that offer no storage stock (and anyone else looking for more storage...).
My only complaint is the velcro on the magnetic strip. My jacket has a mesh strip up the entire front zipper for air flow, and the mesh and velcro do not play well, it has started to tear up the mesh. Unfortunately it doesn't seem possible to hide that velcro in any way...

Minimalist Tank Bag
Recenltly got back from a trip up to Montreal for the F1 race, and needed a small tank bag to keep passport, wallet, phone, and other small items handy and secure. I have plenty of storage on the back of the bike and didn't want a big tank bag. This little guy did the trick and was exactly what I was hoping for.
When it was raining my phone (iPhone 6) had no problems staying dry in the dedicated pocket...I'll probably glue up or tape the headphone/cable port though to really seal it off.
My tank area is only half magnetic, so I had to use the included straps, which was not a problem and only took 10 minutes or so to get them installed and tightened down properly. If you just need a small bag to carry the small stuff for short day trips, or already have plenty of other storage and don't want something intrusive, this is a great bag.

Great small bag for commuting and day trips
Great little tank bag for commuting and for those rides on the weekend. The magnets are great and make it easy to take off and put on. I've used this for several months now and haven't noticed any scuffs or scratches on my tank from the bag.
The low profile of this bag is great, though it will cause you to take your eyes completely off the road if you need/have to look at your phone/GPS. This is especially the case on sport-standard and sportbikes as you have a forward lean. I have not tried this on a standard or cruiser seating position.
I've used this bag in the rain, with my phone in it, and nothing has gotten too wet especially while moving. Not really a concern after a few commutes in the wet, ranging from a drizzle to steady rain. Only when stopped at a light or moving slowly in traffic does it start to get wet on the outside. I just wipe the water away from the headphone hole for my phone if its concerning.
I put my phone, multitool, knife and my work's building pass in this and everything is easily accessible as compared to a backpack. It is nice to see who is calling when paired to my Sena so I know if I need to answer or not on my commutes.
I would recommend this bag to anyone looking for something to hold their phone and other EDC items that they don't like in their pockets while riding.

Excellent little bag
This is an excellent bag for times when you don't want to carry a full sized tank bag, but you don't want your pockets loaded with too much stuff. The media pocket holds a phone or GPS where it can easily be seen, which is useful for navigating. The main compartment is a good size for wallet, house keys and an energy bar/candy bar or two. A key clip inside the main compartment would be nice to have.
Installation is very easy, the straps and clips are very sturdy and the pads do a good job of protecting your bike's finish. The magnets appear strong enough to hold the bag on by themselves, but I haven't tried this.

Causes Phone to Shut Off
Got this bag as something small and sleek to put on my Harley Breakout. Everything was fine until I turned on my GPS and put it in the clear phone holder - at which point my screen turned off. I tried multiple times and as I got my phone with an inch or two of the pocket the screen went blurry, then as I put it inside the bag the screen would turn off and would not come back on when pressing the power button. As soon as I took the phone out of the bag it would turn back on so obviously the magnets in the bag are affecting the phone (HTC m8).
It's a shame it didn't work, and I haven't heard of many other people having the problem. The bag seems well built but I can't give a good review to a bag my phone fails to function inside. Return for me.

velcro on the bag will pull your jacket
I liked the bag when I got it. It holds the small things that I want it to hold. The magnets hold on well enough, and the bag isn't too large where it feels like it's in the way. The problem for me is the velcro on the bottom strap points up and pulled my jacket apart around the zipper. I might modify it and cut the velcro off, because I don't need to strap it to my tank.
