Cortech Micro Tank Bag
Nice small tank bag
This is a good small tank bag if you want something only to carry the essentials. I use it with just the magnets and it is very secure. The only caution is when putting a phone in the pocket with the clear top can cause the phone to overheat.

Perfect for unloading pockets
I got this bag so that I would have quick access to everything that I normally carry in my pockets. Perfect for what I need because I have hard luggage and a Kriega bag for anything larger.

great little tank bag
This is a solid tank bag if you dont have too much to carry. Great for maps, small tool kit, or some other small object. The phone access works but isnt the best for using it as a gps system with your smart phone. It was hard to see my maps on my pnhone in it. But if you just want to have a place for your phone and want to listen to your headphones it works just fine. I just wish the main area for storage was just a bit bigger and taller.

Good and small
It is really small and still I can fit my wallet house keys and garage door opener. 2 things to note. The cellphone container can only fit an iPhone or smaller, there is no room to go any bigger at all. Secondly, there is some Velcro at the bottom of single leg that should be pointing towards you (on top of the magnet by the cellphone area), it messed up mesh jacket so I have to mount it inverted. Simply because of this I would not recommend it.

Great Option for minimal Cargo Space
I bought this mostly so that I could mount my iPhone 5 on the tank and be able to use the mapping while riding. The iPhone 5 fits the pocket, but just barely. Originally I had intended to also run a cable up to the main pocket for a backup battery for longer rides, but there's no spare room in that clear pocket to plug in any cables (headphones, power, etc). Fortunately, the phone has pretty good battery life, so it still works for me.
What I really like about the bag, however, is that it's extremely low profile, so it really hugs the tank and I don't feel like it's getting beaten up by the wind at all. I've heard discouraging reviews of Cortech durability, and I don't feel like this one is going to wear out at all because the wind really doesn't get to it at all.
The magnets are nice and strong and the backing is a good, soft yet tacky material. Even though I make sure to install the backup strap when I ride with the bag, I don't feel like it's really necessary at all.
All in all, a good bag for a great price.

Great apperance havent used it yet
Super strong magnets to hold on to tank fits great on my Honda CBR I could not accurately rate it on durability and performance as it is winter and snowing here in Wisconsin but the price is simply unbeatable!!

Good on metal tanks!
I originally bought it to use on joy rides when I didn't want to bring a backpack and stuff my pockets with wallet, phone and garage opener. Everything fits so it does the job. Unfortunately I didn't realize the tank on my MV Agusta F3 is plastic, so the magnets don't work :(
It works great on my Ninja 650 though but it's my commuter bike and I always carry a backpack for all my stuff so this product is a bit useless on it.
