Cortech Super 2.0 12-Liter Magnetic Tank Bag
The perfect size and plenty of pockets
Still tweaking my accessories and have found this to be a great tank bag. Key items I need for longer trips are right there. Magnets in the flaps and bottom of the bag keep the flaps in check when the bag is removed.

Nice Quality - Too Small
I suppose that measuring the volume of something in liters is just as valid as cubic inches, but it's a little hard to realize how small this thing is until it arrives. It has 12 liters of storage capacity. So you're thinking "I can stick about 12 1-liter bottles in this thing." Uh no. Good luck fitting a small lunch in there. It's a great bag, but be warned. It's super tiny.
Build quality is superb. Magnetic attachment is painless. The carry-handle is nice. Interior padding is wonderful.

Good quality, but a little more expensive
This is my second Cortech tank bag and it's definitely a step up from the last one. It's going to be durable and very useful with great fit and finish. The only down side is that it's more expensive than some other tank bags that could proably give you similar functionality.

Very roomy bag
I wasn't sure about ordering online without seeing this bag in person but I did and when I received it it was smaller than what I wanted so I gave a call to customer service and they completely took care of me without any hastle at all! That's awesome when a big company works like that! OK on to the bag, its an awesome bag! I USS it everyday for back and forth to work. It has plenty of room for my lunch, a bottle of water, gloves, and more room on top of all that. I havnt taken it on a trip yet but i can imahgine it is a good addition to my luggage. I love the magnetic part so when I go into a store or whatever I just grab the handle and don't have to worry about someone taking it or getting into it on the bike. I have had it stuffed full and has not even moved on the tank, even a little bit! Its on there! Awesome bag!! Thanks

solid product, very usable
I had a previous Cortech tank bag that was a bit smaller. It was just plain worn out and needed replacement. This one is a bit larger than my old one. But I can fit in a small coffee thermos, gloves, hat, sunglasses and a few other odds & ends. The magnets hold great on to the tank. There's a few pockets on the inside for small stuff like note pads and pens. But it holds quite a bit of stuff and isn't too large of a bag that it gets in the way when riding. Great construction, good looks, holds my stuff and a good price. Would recommend to anyone.

Decent size and functionality
- With the capacity of this tank bag I was able to fit: two 16oz water bottles, couple of snacks, phone charger and electronic cables, phone, wallet, and basic hygiene products (toothbrush, razor, toothpaste)
- The magnets where very strong and was very durable in 80+ mph speeds and was easy to remove from the tank.
- Converts into a backpack so it is convenient when I got off the bike.
- The see-thru plastic made it very easy for me to refer to my phone for gps directions
- The tank bag did leave a few minor scratches on my gas tank; recommend putting some kind of thin rubber or cloth between the tank bag and gas tank to prevent scratches
- It's hard to get a full tuck with it in the way.

Currently I own a '13 Triumph Street Triple R. This 12L tank bag is the perfect size. It's very well organized and the hide-a-way backpack straps are very useful. I could not be more pleased. Combined with my 20L Kriega tail pack & R25 Backpack, I've now got almost 60L of storage. If you can't go touring, even camping, with 60L of storage (I go on 10 day climbing trips with 60L), you're taking too much junk.

This has a 'killer app'
I have had mine for some years and only use this during multi-day trips. It is very well thought-out with the pockets, electric pass-through, rain cover, etc. And has a good build quality. The thing I love is the hidden back-pack straps. When your doing trips you always need to stop and eat, buy stuff, whatever....and you don't want to leave your tank bag vulnerable to theft. Super easy to disconnect and through it over your shoulder. It also serves as a nice day-pack if you want to hike to see a waterfall.
