Incredible Versatile Tank Bag
This bag has quickly caused my saddlebags to fall out of use. It can be converted from an incredibly roomy tank bag to a compact backpack in under 10 seconds, is well built, and looks great. Great for when you don't want to have to leave things unattended on your bike when parked.

To my surprise, an iPhone touch screen can even be used THROUGH the map pocket's translucent screen. No longer have any need for a GPS or similar bar-mounted navigation device.

The extra straps, well organized interior, ability to expand, and attention to detail in the construction are just excellent cherries on top.

If you are trying to decide between the 12L bag and the 18L bag, you should go for the 18L. It is equal in size to the 12L but is able to expand a significant amount. This means that it remains as compact as the 12L when you need it to, but always gives you the option of having significantly more storage space.

Fantastic Bag
Full disclosure requires that I confess this is only the second tank bag I have ever used.

My first bag, the Wolfman Rainier tank bag, I purchased in March of this year. That bag was a strap-on. I mention this as it plays a part in my review below. Also, I ride a 2015 Triumph Daytona 675R - so a supersport bike.

I purchased this Cortech Super 2.0 18L tank bag due to the reviews and because it was a magnetic tank bag.

Pros
- Nice finish
- Even when empty, maintains its shape and looks sporty
- incudes a padded sleeve to hold a second faceshield (I always wear tinted, so nice that I can store a clear visor for night/rain/cloudy scenarios)
- EASY-ON and EASY-OFF - I didn't think this would be that big a deal to me, but it's actually very nice (of course any magnetic tank bag would do the same - but still, it's a positive). To contrast, with my Wolfman Rainier I had to attach straps to my bike to which the strap-on bag would attach. When not using the tankbag I had to purchase a stretchy "x-strap" that would hold down the bike-attached straps or otherwise I would have to deal with them flapping about. I lost my "x-strap" recently and it was that which precipitated me purchasing this Cortech bag. I purchased a strap-on bag because I had been warned that a magnetic bag would greatly increase the risk of damage to my finish on my fuel tank. What I found instead was that the strap-on Wolfman Rainier messed up my finish due to the straps rubbing. :-( Only time will tell, but so far I am not seeing any reason to fear that this Cortech bag will scratch my finish. (but I would have said the same about the Wolfman only 3 days into owning it)
- The built-in handle is very nice. The one on my Wolfman Rainier became very stretched out. This one is tight and it looks to me that the way it is made that it will stay tight.
- The backpack feature was a must for me. The Wolfman Rainier backpack solution was a joke. They sell an extremely overpriced nylon strap solution and it was always slipping off my shoulders. Also, for multiple other reasons, the whole thing just didn't work really - it was clearly an afterthought solution. On the other hand, this Cortech bag is very nice. I was initially worried about the built-in straps. I worried that they would bunch up when tucked away, preventing good contact between magnets and fuel tank, and I also worried that they too would slip off my shoulders. While I think even Cortech would admit that this is not on par with top-level dedicated backpacks (in term of strap padding, and overall comfort, I have found this bag to be VERY GOOD when used as a backpack. None of my fears have been realized, and it has been a joy to move from tankbag to backpack and back again.
- The expansion solution works very nice and it is tucked away when not needed (as compared to my Rainier where I was always grabbing the expansion zipper rather than the zipper to open the main compartment).

Cons
- The zippers have these little cubbyholes (not sure what the real term is) for when they are zipped up. This, I gather, is so that they do not flap about. But, those cubbyholes were designed too tightly and it takes too long to get the zipper tucked into them (and so I don't bother). Perhaps they will loosen up over time, but I suspect not.
- The key solution located within the main compartment is, I think, useless. The plastic "hook" is difficult to use, and even if you attach your keys they simply flop around in the main compartment - just on a tether. The main compartment is not so large that I can imagine keys getting lost. Perhaps some will find value in it, I just think it needs to be rethought or removed.

The two cons I raised are slightly irritating, but in no significant way do they detract from my enjoyment of this bag.

Very pleased owner.

Great bag!
Let me be clear -- I am reviewing the magnetic version of the Cortech Super 2.0 18l bag. I have no reservations about recommending this bag. Expanded to 18l it holds a ton of stuff, and it grabs the tank securely every time, with no movement at any speed. If you aren't hauling a lot of stuff around, leave it zipped to the 12l size to save some space. The map window is fairly useless, as the entry opening is far too small to get a decent sized map in, but other than that, it performs great.

The same cannot be said for the strap version, which I also have (da** BMW plastic tank covers#. No matter how tight you pull the straps, the bag flops around even with a light load, but the same can be said about every other strap bag I've tried #a bunch). If you have a metal tank and don't need a map window, grab this bag. Otherwise, pass.

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.

Good Tank Bag But Not Perfect
I wanted a tank bag that was easy to take on and off, had enough capacity to hold my bike cover, and something with enough room that on long trips I could move some of my excess luggage from my backpack into the tank bag. Overall this definitely fits the bill! I use my bike as a mode of transportation between home and college (round trip of 240 miles) and this tank bag has proven its worth. Overall I've probably ridden about 1200 miles with it. As far as the specifics:
The Good:
-Magnets work well on my bike (when the bag is not overloaded). I ride a 2007 Kawasaki Ninja 650r. I've ridden on highways and side roads and the bag stays where it lays.
-A fair amount of capacity. I can fit my bike cover and cram in 2 chain cleaning/lube bottles.
-Seems to be very durable construction. Nothing cheap about it.
-The backpack feature is pretty cool. I haven't used it much but I can see how it would be useful (it's not just a gimmick).
The Bad:
-Although it is nice to have the option of expanding the capacity from 12 to 18L, in practice it doesn't work so well because the side flaps, containing some of the magnets, don't have enough contact with the tank for a good connection. Thus, it's not possible to use all 18L of space. If Cortech had just made the flaps a little longer maybe this problem could have been avoided.
-The map case is OK, and I've definitely used it, but you have to fold up the map quite tightly to get it to fit.
-I think the bang for the buck of this bag is OK, but I think that $125 is a little steep considering that Cortech sells the Cortech Super 2.0 Saddlebags for a little over $140.
Summary:
Definitely a good little tank bag. Solid construction and magnets work well as long as the bag isn't stuffed to capacity, in which case the bag may shift a little. If your in the market for a tank bag which has decent capacity and is easy to take on and off, then this bag will work well. If your just concerned about the amount of storage, I would look at the Cortech Super 2.0 Saddlebags which are only about $10 more expensive, has more storage, and definitely better bang for buck.

Very convenient
I use this bag to carry a camera, water, a snack, and all the stuff that would otherwise by in my pockets when I go on a scenic weekend ride. Usually that all fits with the bag un-expanded.

I did go on a 650-mile trip up the coast with it expanded to carry all sorts of things and was never worried about it falling off while riding. Even tall, it didn't obscure vision to gages. It also provided a nice place to rest my left hand on some stretches of the road

Easy to put on and peel off, though not necessarily straight (Usually I would notice that I had put it on 5-10° angled to the left because my handlebars were always full-left when I was trying to put the bike on.)

Fits great on a Kawasaki EX500

Great product, love the magnetic base and would definitely recommend this product.
I'm a daily rider and I wanted something that would detach quickly and have expandable storage for my rain gear. I was hesitant on getting a magnetic based but I am very pleased with it. The grip on the tank is very stable and there is no movement even at high speeds. The expandable storage is great when needed is still comfortable to reach around. I have some time in the rain and haven’t notice any leaks yet.

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.

Very Pleased with the product
I bought this for my son for his Suzuki SV650 and was very impressed with the quality of the bag and the thought that was put into it. The rain cover is located in the back of the bag easily accessible if you have to quickly pull over and cover. The side pockets are somewhat rigid so as not to accidentally crush contents such as sunglasses. The inside of the bag is expansive and the cinch bag within allows for ability to almost have a dual pocket where you have your immediate need items outside the internal bag and the longer need items inside the bag and therefore not mixed. The organizer built into the lid is fantastic as without something like that stuff just gets lost everywhere in the single storage area. The map pouch is nice although in a day where almost all of us either use our phone or a gps for map data I would prefer having a way to more easily attach a phone to the top instead of a physical map. However, a phone will slide in the map pouch and is usable through the plastic pouch.

The magnetic attachment works great and the hidden backpack straps is a nice touch especially if you are placing a camera or video in it for sight seeing. Allows you to make it double as a camera bag.

All in all great bag and quality made. I would highly recommend it. Oh, and not so tall that it feels like it is in your face while you are riding either.

I wanted a magnetic bag that's easy to take on/off, but stays put at speed. The 18-liter size means it can hold a reasonable amount of stuff, but doesn't get too cumbersome or block the gauges. It doubles as a nice chest rest for longer rides (since it sits a bit higher than the 12-liter form fitters). That map pouch at the top is big enough to fit any phone you could dream of for GPS usage.

This is a perfect bag. When filling my gas tank - I just move it off to the side and fill. Then pop the unit back onto the metal gas tank I have. It does have a front strap that you can use - if you have doubts about it ever coming loose from the tank. Also it does have some side loops - but I've had no need to use them. Excellent bag - great buy for me.

I purchased the Cortech Super 2.0 tank bag for my V-Strom DL650A (2012). The bag is great, with the exception that the map pocket opens on the small end. They should have made it open on the larger end.

The V-Strom DL650A has a good bit of plastic covering the sides of the tank. This makes it difficult to get a good bond with the side flap magnets.

I always use the tether to keep the bag from sliding back towards the seat. Other than that, it appears to be steady for side to side movement.

I have a 2010 Kawasaki Voyager while the gas tank is metal, there is this plastic 3 or 4 inch wide strip down the middle that is not. so any magnets there would not hold. Would this stll work on my bike? or should I look at something else. not sure I want to go to strap as I've read reviews where they tend to shift. Thanks for any comments or suggestion, bikers or Revzilla!!
A shopper on Apr 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The magnets on the bottom of the bag are about 4.5 inches apart, so any sort of plastic strip less than 4.5 inches wide should be fine assuming it is exactly centered. There are more magnets on the flaps that fold out as well.

This bag is very nice. I bought two of them. I use it for school and fill it with textbooks fully expanded. Even in that situation is has minimal movement at the top (lots of weight high up). It has never moved or slipped at the base. No problems with marring the finish on the tank (rubberized base). Turns into a backpack which is awesome.
It says it contains an exit port for a sip tube, does that mean there is a spot inside for a hydration bladder?
A shopper on Nov 19, 2012
BEST ANSWER: There isn't a dedicated slot for a hydration pouch--it would just have to sit in the main cargo area.
Is the clear window pouch for the map removable? I won't be needing a map for travelling and I was just thinking it might look a bit odd to have a clear pouch on it without anything in it.

Secondly, it's hard to tell how large is it from the pictures but could you fit a pair of running shoes and a set of spare clothes and probably a tumbler in it? I'm interested in carrying my gym outfit and clothes in it so preferably if everything can fit it that would be good. Thanks
A shopper on Sep 20, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes; the window map pouch is removable via a snap and a velcro strip. It's easily done in seconds. That said, it looks just fine with nothing in the map-pouch.

The bag expands quite a bit from what you see in the picture. You can get 6 bottles of beer in it or your shoes and other kit. Your choice. I have the magnetic version, which is excellent.

My only complaint with the product is the access to the map pouch is so narrow that the map pouch is virtually useless because you cannot get a map in without damaging the map.
How is the quality of the magnets in this bag? I really like what I have read about it here, and the video reviews are great. However, I have read several complaints about the strength/quality of the magnets and some saying the bag slipped around and even fell into their lap because they were just not strong enough. Not many reviews address this directly.
(I have a 2013 CB500f)
A shopper on Dec 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Whoever claimed that it slipped into their lap must either be crazy or they ride something with a plastic tank cover??? BUELL or something that may not have a metal tank? I used mine on my 2014 FJR 1300 and on my FZ 1000 and packed full and completely expanded on both bikes it did not appear to move at all. This summer I completed a 2500 mile trip through the mountains, to the beach and through temperatures from 50 to 90 degrees with rain in all legs of the ride, cortech bag kept everything dry and I only used the rain cover one time. Magnets NEVER slipped! BUY IT!!! It is a great product and value. I have owned First Gear and other bags back in the 90's and early 2000 and I rank this one up there with some of the best I have had! Hope this helps!
When expanded can it hold my fullface helmet? I don't want to carry a tank bag on my back and a helmet. It would br great if I can stash my helmet in the bag and carry it on my back.
A shopper on Apr 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, no it wont fit a full face. The opening isn't large enough, but it will fit a lot of stuff. Very well made. It has built in shoulder straps, so you can remove it and carry it as a back pack
Would this fit well on a XV250 Virago, or would the 12L fit be better? Looking for something that won't block the gauges too much and still remain secure on a smaller tank. Yet hoping for something to use on larger bikes as well.
A shopper on Aug 12, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I think it would fit. My friend uses it on his Shadow 750, which has the speedo on the tank itself, and it fits there.

WARNING - on a cruiser, the rain shield is useless AND almost certainly WILL FAIL. Because the tank is tilted upwards at the front, the wind just BLASTS into the bag . Since the rain cover only shock cords around the top 5 sides and doesn't seal or attach to the bag, it fills up with wind as soon as you ride. My buddy's exploded on him the first time he used it. We weren't going more than 110kph 120kph(74mph) either.

Also, I'll be posting a review soon, but on mine the snap that holds the map pocket down to the back of the bag broke in half. I'll probably try to replace it with Velcro, or get it warrantied maybe revzilla? (So everyone knows, I haven't contacted them about it yet, I'm sure they'll help me out!)

Those 2 issues aside, I do still really love this bag. Everything else about it is GREAT. If you ride a standard or sport bike, or a cruiser but you never ride in the rain, it's probably the best tank bag out there feature, size and design wise.
I've been looking at the cortech 2.0 bags, I've seen in some places it says that the 12L is the only one with the built in backpack straps. Does this 18L have the straps too?

BEST ANSWER: Yes it does have the backpack strap. I use it all the time. The bag has been great but the clear map pocket get wrinkle easy. So it is not very visible. I don't use the map pocket so I don't care .
The magnetic option looks very appealing. Would this bag work on a Suzuki GSXR600 2006/2007 tank? My concern is that a third of the tank on the front end is made of plastic. Would the magnets still work on this tank?

BEST ANSWER: My buddy has the same year bike, I should have tried my bag on his tank to see if it would work. Oh well..anyways, my other friend has a 600RR which has a full plastic tank cover. The way he got around this issue was to take the plastic bits off, install some magnets between the plastic and the tank, and reinstall the plastic. Worked like a charm! I would imagine this would be the worst case scenario for you, since only 1/3rd is plastic.

Oh yeah, and as a backup, it comes with a little leash to clip and tie the front end down to the bike. So even if the front magnets dont hold 100%, it does have the leash and rear magnets - all the magnets are extremely strong btw, I have to fight to pull my bag off each time!
I have a BMW R1150GS Adventure. The tank is large and sloped, would fit the bike well? Thanks

BEST ANSWER: Hi. I have a street triple and The tank is smaller and with a lot of curves. It adapts really good. I went to a straight trip with rain for 900km without any problem. My bike have no wind protection and sometimes we were at 180km/h and the bag stay fit. Other time I put 230max speed and stay on. I have the 12liter model and just for my secure I use the lash that come with it but I think it was never really necessary. The only time I see the bag getting out of the tank is when I pass throught bridges were the road move down really quick. So you can hear the magnetic getting back to the tank. So my only concern to you is if you go on a hard core off road it can move, but even thought with the lash I don't think it will be a big problem. The system is really great and I am very happy with it. The only thing I would say it is not perfect is the rain cover. On that trip we made 800km on rain in one day and the cover deteriorate.
Does this model come with the visor case. I don't see anything in the description but just watched the video for the sloped version of this bag and it comes with it?

BEST ANSWER: Yes it does. I use mine often and it is made of soft felt like material and does not scratch. It fits in the bag nicely in such a way that it doesn't interfere with other items you want to stow in the bag.
