Cortech Super 2.0 18-Liter Magnetic Tank Bag
Tank Bag Good Value
This tank bag meets the spec and it holds a lot. I always use my tank bag for the tings I need to get to quickly, like: sunscreen, glove liners, ball-cap, neck warmer, snacks, camera, paper maps when the GPS wants to send me off a cliff, etc. My older bag literally wore out, so I'm looking for this one to last at least the 7 years I got out of the last one. The only negative is that this bag is a little to big, and it interferes with filling my fuel tank, and the handlebars press against it when they are at the locks. I can live with that given all the "stuff" it holds. The magnets hold well and the under-fabric doersn't scratch my paint. Buy one!

Cortech 2.0 Expandable Tank Bag
Overall very happy with this tank bag.
Works great on my Triumph Scrambler and is very stable in its normal configuration. It isn't quite as stable in its expanded mode, but I really wouldn't expect it to be as it sits about 3 inches higher that way. I've used it with and without the included leash, and haven't had any problems, even at extra-legal speeds (may be helped by my Dart flyscreen somewhat).
Only issue I've seen in near daily use in the last 3 months is some wear on the "zipper garage" (the little extra patch you can tuck the zip into) in a few places. It doesn't affect the use of the bag at all, it's just cosmetic.
No, you probably can't put your laptop in it, but a few tools, an extra visor, gloves, FA kit, extra base layer, etc. fits in easily.
Overall - very happy.

This is my second tank bag and a big step up in quality from my first one. Love the extra shield protector and all the pockets. Usually holds my phone, wallet, spare ear plugs, gloves. Plenty of space for shoes, extra shirt, or the random food run. The zipper garages really work. High quality craftsmanship throughout. Wish it was a little cheaper but I'm satisfied it was money well spent.

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.

Great bag but, Zipper garages don't last
This bag is really big, it has great features. The "zipper garages" started tearing immediately. I was in a bad wreck with this bag on my tank and it made it through, no problems. everything inside was unscathed. Bike was totaled... Great bag and the back pack straps make it even cooler.

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 use it almost every day on my way to work and even for longer distances for all my stuff. The size is exactly what I need. And if you have a little bit more, you can even increase the size which is nice, you can decide how big the tank bag is to your needs. Love it!

Perfect for my Speed Triple
I use this to commute to work. When expanded it is large enough to carry my dress shoes and uniform. The side compartment zippers are also easy to access while wearing leather gloves and I use them to hold my id card to get through the guard gates. The inside of the bag has rigid flaps the flip out to provide shape and to support the bag when expanded to full capacity. The magnets hold the bag securely to the tank even at speeds >80 mph. Also, the bag is attractively designed and looks good on the bike. Grabbing the handle to pull the bag off the tank will cause the magnets to attract together, which prevents dirt or dust from getting on the surfaces that will make contact with the tank. Overall, the bag has made it very convenient to use the bike for quick trips to the store or commuting to work. I can't speak for the map pocket since I have not used this feature.
