Cortech Micro 2.0 Tank Bag
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.

Performs as Designed/Desired
I was looking for a small, convenient, portable way to have necessary items along "for the ride" (i.e. registration/proof of insurance, garage-door opener, sunglasses, etc., since my new ride, a 2016 Indian Scout, GREAT Bike by the way, does not have any real usable storage on the bike or under the seat. The Micro 2, does exactly what I need it to and I was able to purchase at a very reasonable price. The stitching seems stout, the fabric durable - we'll see about that - and the magnets do a great job of keeping the tank bag in place even in SEVERE wind, which we get in fly-over country. It is small enough that I can carry it with me when off the bike - a murse if you will - but large enough that I can keep what I need handy. And as ALWAYS Revzilla is a great online retailer with exemplary customer service. That is why I am a repeat customer.

Needed a small tankbag for GPS
I was looking for a small tank bag for my GPS, that wouldn't be tall enough to block my view of the speedometer. This one fits the bill perfectly! Good size for the GPS, and the storage section is just big enough for phone, wallet, and other small items.
Magnets hold great, even at highway speeds. Haven't added on the straps yet, have felt no need. The construction is great, and seems like it will hold up to a lot.

Great Little Bag
This is one of those simple items that just does what it's designed for very well.
I don't think any tank bag is going to win any style awards, but it's small, light, holds basically 2 pockets worth of stuff, and does it's job. I keep my keys, wallet, phone, EZ-Pass, insurance cards, etc in there and have no issues at all. It's not water-proof, but I have been in light rain with no issues, and I personally wouldn't want a waterproof bag most days because they tend to be a hassle with a gloved hand. My only suggestion would be that cortech relocate the wire access port to the fabric rather than the plastic, but that's a small opinion based thing.
I have friends with cheaper ebay bags and they are not anywhere near as nicely put together as the cortech.

Great for phone navigation.
I purchased this product mainly for cell phone navigation for long road trips and a place to keep my wallet keys cards etc. If that's what you're looking for then this item is for you! Can't say enough good things about it, the cell phone holder is angled up so you can view it easily which helps a lot, there is not much storage. Enough for keys, cards, wallet, passport etc. basically anything you can fit in your pockets you can fit in the tank bag. Which is the primary objective with this bag, take the items out of your pockets and stop getting lost! I bought this bag solely to elevate my riding experience by fixing those two problems I had, and it's working like a charm. If you're looking for large tank storage look elsewhere.

Sleek and Handy
I needed something to put on my tank for my phone (I'm always getting lost and I need my Navi). I don't really need to be fussing with it, or dealing with a map so I figured this would be the perfect solution.
I love this tank bag. Other ones were just too big, and too ugly. I bought my bike because of its sleek lines and I didn't want to bulk it up with a huge tank bag. This was perfect. The raised back so the phone is at an angle to where I can see it, and its breathable so my phone doesn't get as hot.
The little extra area is perfect for smaller things. I have my apartment garage clicker in there, so I don't have to rummage around in my bag. I also have my house keys, and my mini wallet for my cards. It's the PERFECT size.
Now, I use the magnets, and I have been warned that it can scratch but I haven't had a problem, with it. I usually wipe off my bike anyways, so thats not a big deal. This thing is STURDY. I mean the magnets are super tight, and you don't feel like they are going anywhere! But even if you do, there is a little strap around the bike to keep it together. It is so great.
So if you want something small, sleek, and to hold just your phone and a few items, this is perfect. :)

Simple and unobtrusive.
This bag is great. It holds my phone, my charger, cramp buster, etc. and is easily accessible. I also like it for it's low profile. Would recommend for phone and small items.
