Cortech Super 2.0 8-Liter Magnetic Tank Bag
A great magnetic tank bag.
The build quality is excellent on this bag. High quality components used throughout the materials, and the magnets are extremely strong. I never once had an issue with it moving even slightly off my tank. I ride a '13 Tiger 800 XC and the tank is small and slopes down fast compared to more traditional bikes, but this bag fits great. Anything larger would not have fit well on this tank. However, I give this product a 4 star because of the strange way it is designed to be wider at the back and thinner at the front. Not sure why they didn't keep it the same width, but it makes it so things like my ipad will not fit in this thing. They fit in the back, but the front is too narrow. Also the cell phone pocket is way too small to fit even my iphone 5, which is ridiculous. Not sure what the point of that thing is at all. All other pockets are great though and it comes with a nice rain cover.

A nice, compact bag...
This bag does all it claims to. It's size has limitations but works great for what I wanted it for, i.e. a place to secure my wallet, eyeglass case, house keys, gloves when I'm not riding, etc. etc. The interior surfaces are soft and cushy and while I appreciate the two extra zip pockets they are quite small and hold little. There are some handy pockets and sleeves in the main compartment which helps some in organizing. I wish there was a way to increase the footprint of the bag slightly to fit a 8.5x11 sheet of paper in it without folding it but guess that would defeat the purpose of having a compact bag. Anyway, the magnets hold the tank fine even at high speeds. No problem with tank scratching as long as you use care. If you are looking for a small, compact bag this will do the trick.

It's a simple tank bag. Interior is soft and open without lots of complicated compartments.
However, there are 2 problems.
1. The bottom is not soft enough. This is especially true under the magnets. Compared to my Rapid Transit Recon 19, it's like there is no padding under there. Special care to not scratch the paint needs to be taken when installing and removing.
2. The weakest point is the zipper operation. The sides walls are very stiff and create "kinks" where the silver piping meets the zipper track. The zipper will catch when you try to open or close it. This makes for fun times if you're trying to quickly access anything inside while on the road. Like reaching for money at a tollbooth. If this isn't a common occurrence, not a big deal.
Overall, it's a serviceable bag. It holds stuff and stays on the tank even with crosswinds at highway speeds.

Good Idea but...
I received my bag and promptly installed and went for a 100 mile ride or so. Took the bag off and later went to clean the bike up and noticed some texture marks on the tank where the magnets were located. I now have four stamps left by the magnets engraving the texture into the paint. To be more specific, there's no scratches or rub marks. The tank was clean before install and the bag was brand new and clean. Other than this disaster, the bag was perfect size and all.

Perdect fit fot a Tiger 800
The Tiger 800 has a very odd-shaped tank so it was difficult finding a tank bag that would fit properly. This bag does the trick. I went with the magnets for ease of use. Just remember not to keep your wallet with credit cards here.
I use it to carry my dslr and other small items, glasses, etc.

Nice little tank bag
I bought this tank bag for my Ninja 300. It is pretty small but I only wanted to carry a few items when I ride like a pair of gloves, my wallet and maybe a bottle of water. I also like to carry some glass cleaner to clean my shield to remove bugs. If you want to carry a full change of clothes you may want to go up one size to the 12 liter. The quality of the bag is great and it matches my bike. RevZilla was really great to deal with and I received the product in only 2 days.

I'm not a big fan of tank bags in general and especially large tank bags. This bag is the perfect size for me. Not too big and it doesn't get in the way, yet can hold my wallet, keys, phone, etc when I want it too. I'm very pleased with it. I got the magnetic for my Tiger 800. Magnets are super strong.

Great tank bag for convenience items.
Just what I wanted to throw in wallet, phone, gloves, map, gps and water. Easy to grab and go once at destination without having to open hard saddlebags, top bag etc. Seem to be very well made and using it daily for the two weeks I've had it.
