Cortech Super 2.0 12-Liter Strap Mounted Tank Bag
Great small (but not tiny) tank bag for commuting and day trips!
I was looking for a quick-release tank bag that was large enough to carry my phone, lunch, and a drink plus and a few other long-distance staples, but didn't want anything large or bulky--that's the job of the Jesse's. This bag has nice lines, the seaming details are well-done and sturdy, and the clear map pocket is adequate (a bit small, but that's because the bag is small). The interior is quite plush--it reminds me of the interior of my LowePro camera bags. Installing the mounting straps on the F650 Dakar took a bit of finagling but wasn't too difficult, and while the bag would sometimes shift to the side of the tank while riding in crosswinds, it performed very well.
Unfortunately my bike was stolen a few months after adding the bag, so now I have a great tank bag and no mounting straps. Here's hoping I can source them somewhere!

Great tank bag, Great Price.
This bag is high quality. Zippers and compartments work well. The 12 liter bag is a perfect fit for my BMW 1200RT. Not to large, doesnt get in the way of anything. Installation was easy, probably 20 minutes with adjustments. Looks good on the bike also. I have no regrets.

Good Touring Bag that doubles as a backpack
Good Touring Bag that doubles as a backpack. Rode 2500 miles on a 3 week trip in CA & this tank bag/ backpack performed well. It has quality construction & zippers. It's the right size (not too tall for my BMW K1600GTL). Comes with a rain cover but it never rained on us in 3 weeks of riding! Converts quickly to a small backpack which we used for exploring off the bike. It's a bit small but fits a 35mm size camera, water bottle, sunscreen, eyeglasses & small binoculars just fine. To avoid wrapping the front straps around the Triple clamp I removed two screws at the front of my tank, punched a couple holes in the straps with an ice pick and reattached the scrwes through the straps. And I leave this attached to the bike when the tank bag is removed. Works great!

The video reviews helped me decide on the size; the features for the price were perfect. I used this on a 2100 miles trip and have no complaints.

Great for plastic tanks
Very secure straps to have the bag cover my plastic tank. Great Cortech quality and good design features.

Great mid-level tank bag
I bought this to slap on my Triumph Speed Triple and like it so much that I kept it when I bought my Multistrada. It works well on there, too.
It's a simple, nice looking tank bag that works well enough. The price is great.
My only gripe has been that the zipper jumped a tooth and was a little more difficult to use on occasion, but it's otherwise been a trooper and through a lot of adventures. The map pocket is really small and hard to access or store any real maps in there. Don't expect to hold your Butler maps with any sort of easy. At best, you could put your mobile phone in there when paired with bluetooth to see direcitons or calls. That's about it.
The waterproof cover worked through a solid day's rain in Oregon. The strap system is pretty tough and simple enough to install. I had no issue getting it to fit on both my Speed Triple and Multistrada.

Perfect size tank bag
At first I was struggling to mount the bag perfectly, but now that I found the way, it is very fast to put on and off. Inside spacious enough for everything I need easy to reach in my riding.

Works on a Buell XB12S
I was looking for something that could hold my work and personal tablets (with cases) amongst other small items. This was it. It takes some magic to thread the front strap around the neck of the bars and to fine-tune, but it's been great for the couple weeks I've owned it. If there was going to be a complaint, it's the lack of easy (snap) removal for the pad, but I can tuck it under my seat strap.
