Cortech Super 2.0 12-Liter Magnetic Tank Bag
you get what you pay for
I am often a cheap ba$tard and buy less expensive things when I have the option. I took a chance and read a lot of tank bag reviews before ordering a $49 bag from Amazon. I settled on the 12 liter cortech and am very pleased with it. Right away you can tell that the materials are very durable and well stitched. The magnets hold firm at speed and over bumpy dirt roads on my Triumph T100 black. fits the tank well and has a low profile while still being able to hold all the essentials. I was worried that a tank bag would be bulky and detract from the riding experience, but I literally forget that its is there immediately after setting out.
My one minor gripe so far is that the reinforced hole through the back of the bag (for headphones/ USB charger wire etc) does not carry through to the main compartment, but only is accessed from the phone-sized rear compartment.
The backpack straps are a deal breaker. I love this feature! Yet they disappear completely into the hidden bottom compartment,
BUY THIS BAG!

Good Tank Bag
Overall this is a great tank bag. I have it on my 2014 KLR 650 and it fits pretty well, the magnets just fit under the fairing.
I easily fit a 1 Liter water bottle, a DSLR camera and snacks with room to spare.
I do have one gripe with the bag. The "Map" case is too small and tapers. It isn't a deal breaker, but unless you custom cut your map don't expect it to fit easily.

Fits a Triumph Bonneville SE/T100
I read the other reviews first, to see what I could add. First off, I took away one star because the material on the inside catches on velcro, as everyone else had mentioned. And also, the phone pocket next to the carry handle is WAY too small. When the bag is packed full, the only thing that is going to fit in that pocket is a drivers license/ I.D. badge. An I.D. badge without the plastic carry cover. On to the positives... this bag is made strong, with thick materials. Stays on my Triumph, with an offset fuel fill hole with no problems. It comes with a strap that wraps around the gooseneck and can be snapped on for added security, but I haven't needed it yet. Strong magnets. I usually keep an Olympia Expedition rain jacket, a Nelson Rigg half cover- size medium and a pair of Klim Induction short gloves inside, and it is a tight fit. I don't need the map pocket for my commute to work, so I easily removed it. Hey, Cortech, if you're reading this, how about making a rainproof/resistant smartphone holder that will snap/velcro where the stock map holder fits? Make it big enough to accommodate the latest big okole phone styles available. Make it in white or hi viz, so the color won't add to the heat when the sun is beating down. Just a thought. One other small detail I like about this bag is that the reflective piping on the sides has plastic covering it. Keeps the reflective coating from being rubbed off. Also, it took a little time to find where the shoulder straps were hidden. Near the carry handle. I won't totally spoil it.. finding them is half the fun.

Great tank bag, definitely worth the money
I like this bag much more than I thought I would. The magnets are strong enough to keep the bag in place even on a very rough road. The inside is lined with a very nice red fabric, and there is plenty of space with more than enough pockets to keep things organized.

I love this bag
This bag sticks to my Sportster Tank right over the fuel cap with no problems at all. I use it every time I go out. This bag is big enough that in the summer I should be able to do away with the backpack.

Easy to use and convenient to ride with.
Only downside is water resistance. Could use better sealing.

Great bag, one complaint.
This tank bag is well made and a good value. My only complaint is that the map window is too small and oddly shaped. Function has followed form in this case. Otherwise, the bag is just right.

Great tank bag for my Yamaha FZ09!!!!
I purchased this tank bag for my 2015 Yamaha FZ09. The tank bag fits perfect and hold enough for my needs. The magnets on the bag are excellent and storage is great. The one great feature on this bag is that it converts to a backpack, which makes it easy to take with you.
