Cortech Micro 2.0 Tank 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.

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.
