Cortech Super 2.0 18-Liter Magnetic Tank Bag
I have actually had all three sizes now of this model bag. Used this one on a two-day trip down to Laguna Seca for the races. Worked great. I was able to use the backpack straps and carried my camera gear in the tankbag as a backpack all day at the track. Very cool. Great quality and would buy again. I actually like the mid-sized bag a bit more than this one. I try to be a minimalist with gear I take with me when I ride.

Amazed with this bag.
I was a little nervous buying this bag not knowing how well it would fit on my bike('89 Honda CB-1) or how well it would stay put while riding. I should not have worried. Set it on the tank and forget it. Once expanded, it fit much more than I expected. It fit a 12 pack of cans perfectly.
It comes with a visor protector that works great. Zippers all have a great feel and tuck in to a "zipper garage" so they won't flap around. The overall quality of this bag seems very solid. I won't be needing another for years to come. Highly recommend.

Great tank bag, just right, could be bigger
This bag is quite ideal: it sticks strongly to the tank, it has superb finish with many pockets, it expands, and you just pull a strap and use it as backpack. My only complain is that it is a bit too narrow. It's made this way so as not to get in way of the handlebar in turns, but that makes it too small for a 13" laptop which would make it a real commuter bag. Also side pockets are very small. I've had other tank bags that were wider and could accommodate all this and barely got in way of handlebar.

Perfect size both standard and expanded. Fits my old 72 Yamaha XS60 and 1976 BMW R90/6 perfectly and does not cover gas cap. Stable and secure with full load at 65 MPH. Backpack straps hide nicely when not in use and the backpack is comfortable. Very convenient. Easy on and off.

Good all around tank bag
good tank bag, used it for a 1000mile trip and was not disappointed, good material, magnets hold it in place even at 120+mph.
only thing that could be improved is the map section, dont expect to be able to glance at a map while driving, also wont fit a whole page, so i just folded the map to the section of roads i was on and it worked fine for checking my location during gas stops.

I initially thought of purchasing a tank-lock version of the tank bag, but luckily I saw one on someone else's bike and I'm glad I didn't - It sticks up too high off of the tank and looked weird. I did a lot of research and found this Cortech tankbag and I am pretty happy with the purchase. It looks good (one of the best looking tank bags out there) and I love the roominess and compartments. However, like most things, not all is golden... the map pocket is a joke, as stated my many other reviewers. Okay, okay, it'll fit a iphone or smaller GPS, but for those of us that still PREFER the good old tree pulp, it's almost impossible to get the map in without folding and ending up crinkled when you try to unfold it within the holder. The finish seems to be top-notch. Haven't tried the rain cover yet and haven't expanded it yet. Haven't had it that long, so can't say much about the durability....

Get this instead of the 12L bag!
This bag is the same exact size as the 12L bag, with the option to unzip and expand to the larger 18L. Fits on my tank perfectly and the magnets firmly secure it. Comes with a strap to attach it to the handlebar for security while riding. I used it the first time "just in case". The bag didn't move at all, so I don't use the strap anymore. When I get to my destination, I can just grab the handle and go...the bag slides right off the tank. I haven't tried the hidden backpack straps yet, but it looks like they'll work just fine.

Excellent quality, easy to use.
plenty of storage, easy on/off, high quality materials and workmanship. Just the right size for my Z1000.
