Cortech Super 2.0 18-Liter Strap Mounted Tank Bag
big but fits well
I put this on my 2002 Moto Guzzi V11 Scura and was worried about fitment but I like big tank bags and this one fits just right. Before it came in the mail I was setting myself to be dissappointed and return it for the smaller 12L bag but this one turns out to fit my tank perfectly. Build quality is excellent. Zippers are good quality. Interior of the bag is very well made and soft. I saw someone comment that the strap version is difficult to mount tightly. That is simply not true. Take a little time to figure out the best mounting points, tighten the front strap and then when its all set to really get it stuck on use the strap closest to your body (while sitting on the bike) to tighten it up and get it set on right. Mine doesnt budge but it will take a few minutes to get it right. The results are worth the effort.

Very High Quality
The Cortech Super 2.0 tank bags are very high quality inside and out. Rugged on the outside with high quality zippers and a stow away rain fly and finished on the inside like a jewelry box. The clear view top sized map pocket lets you keep an eye on your navigation on paper or on your phone. With many sizes to choose from it's easy to get the perfect fit for your bike and application including the unique "sloped" version for sport riders who may occasionally want to lay on the tank to get out of the wind. These Cortech bags are offered in magnet or strap mount which allowed me to make a no fuss solid connection the the plastic tank panels of my R3 that unclips with a buckle release in a mater of seconds for easy tank filling.The straps are well thought and include protection pocket to guard the tank from scratches. The Super 2.0 bags have a premium price but you get what you pay for and are well worth it as a true high end product. Highly recommended.

I was looking for a small tank bag, so i didnt have to spend the money on the expensive saddle bag sets with my brand new bike. It was a little tough to install at first, required me to take the seat off, and readjust 4-5 times on the handlebar side but its great. Im 6'2" and im just starting out and i barely even notice it there. Holds camera water, spare shirt, wallet, phone and more... I havent been riding long but this is definately going to stick with me.

Durable, spacious and versatile.
I ordered this tank bag for a 1500 mile roundtrip from Portland to San Francisco and I could not have been happier with it. This bag is a bit bigger than you think but it still fit my Moto Guzzi V7 well. I went with the strap mount version for an extra snug fit and to ensure the camera equipment inside would never touch the ground, even if i accidentally dropped the bike. (Magnet bags will pop off the tank)
That said, unsnapping the front of the bag and swinging it around to gas up was super easy and while in San Francisco I actually used the backpack straps for a day and it was surprisingly comfortable and I was glad I had that option.
The clear top is great but because it's nearly water tight your phone will get hot and can't really vent, so on the way home my phone did overheat at one point. A simple pop-up shade or quick cover would be helpful. If you aren't using the phone for navigation that I suggest tucking it in the front pocket.
I was able to fit two cameras, tools, film, my phone, a charger and various cables. This bag expands vertically with built in flaps to give it extra structure when it's expanded.
Only hiccup was that someone stole the front strap mount while I was parked on the street (in a matter of 30 mins). It was San Francisco so I wasn't surprised and luckily I found a replacement at Monroe Motors in the Mission for $10.
Overall, so happy with this bag. Excited to use it more especially as a photographer worried about equipment this gives me piece of mind. Highly recommended.
Suggestion for future versions: Make the clear top pocket big enough for a small tablet (ipad mini or kindle fire) this would be amazing for use with GPS.

Highly functional product
I got this bag to help me move over 1,000 miles, so it was packed full to the brim with stuff and was fine the whole way. The installation directions aren't the greatest but it was fairly easy to figure out what worked best with my bike (Suzuki SFV 650). If you don't tighten the straps every once and a while, though, it can slip a little while riding.

strap on's just arent as good
I have loved all my cortech gear. Durable and a great value. I only wish the straps were easier to connect. Unfortunately my cbr1krr requires seat removal to make the connection. Great product if your bike can use the magnetic version.

Low quality, not worth it
Ill fitting, super cheapie low quality zippers that snag at all corners. Largest compartment is Small mouth preventing easy access or storage of items larger than a small ipad. Also, easy cut easy rip material; no security points to lock to bike. Should be priced at 19.99 and ship with set of oven mits and equally c94££¥ kitchen knives. Not happy with product.
