Cortech Super 2.0 18-Liter Magnetic Tank Bag
Great bag, quality control?
Love the bag, I got the magnetic version. I don't use the strap and it's easy to slap on and rip off for my commute during the week. Even without the strap the bag has never moved even with heavy contents.
The footprint is a bit small for an 18L bag, only around the size of an iPad so won't replace a back pack if you need to carry a laptop.
My only real complaint is one of the side pockets on my bag had a zipper installed backwards. The good folk at Revzilla gave me a partial refund though so I'm happy with the purchase.

Fits a GS
I was skeptical about buying this bag due to the shape of the gas tank on my R1150GS Adventure and was thinking the sloped bag maybe a better choice. I really wanted the backpack feature however, so I went with this bag. I'm glad I did, it fits great, stays on during high speeds on the freeway and high winds. The 8 magnets hold the bag firmly in place, and the bag sits perfectly flat so using the map pouch is very user friendly. The bag is very easy to tether too. Also, the backpack feature is extremely easy to use. The quality is very good, and the bag is very rigid considering its soft. I'd definitely recommend this bag

Very good bag
Well designed bag. Really like the way the zippers have keepers so they do not flap around. Fits solidly on my Suzuki GSX-S1000F.

Perfect for the short hauls...
Durable but stylish construction, easy to mount and dismount (I use the magnet system), and plenty of carrying capacity for the short commuter hauls. Wouldn't fit a briefcase, but perfect for a pair of shoes and a bag lunch, along with the usual assortment of pockets for phones, pens, etc.

Love this bag
I've had a few tank bags over the years, and this is by far the nicest. The liner is great, the included visor sleeve is something I'd never had, but now I can't do without. If I had one complain, expanded out, the bag feels a little wobbly, but it's a huge tank bag and can carry a ton!

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 bag to compliment the tail bag. Great room for all the essential you need for a trip or daily commute.

How's it "magnetically" hangin'?
Talk about a power purchase. I was going back and forth as a first time buyer/bike owner about whether to go with a magnetic or strap-affixed tank bag. Finally got around to doing some maintenance on a friend's bike, and he just so happened to have a magnetic bag himself (12L). Saw the profile and how it secured to the bike, and instantly knew I wanted something magnetic as well (if only a bit bigger).
Coretech delivers where most of the other magnetic bags in this size category fall short. The "too small" cell phone pocket designed for smart phones from 2007 is gone; replaced by a sleek map pouch that can either hold printed directions or something the size of a tablet.
The additional storage for a helmet shield is fantastic, especially since i'm taking a trip here shortly and will be doing day/night riding. Quick, easy access to a place that can securely store a second face shield is awesome.
The 18L bag is pretty nifty in that it has an expansion layer. You can keep it zipped down to make the bag low profile, or you can open up the layer, stuff some extra clothes/gear inside, and have a fairly comfy chest rest for a longer ride.
I only took some points off in the durability department because I know this thing is going to fade with weather exposure. It's made of the standard canvas-weave material of a rucksack, so this this is likely going to look more purple than black inside of about 3 months of heavy use.
