Fly Small Tank Bag
Solid Construction, Solid Value
I usually wear a backpack but in the Texas Summer heat, I don't need yet another insulator on my body.
I was looking for something small to carry a bottle of water, my iPhone 6s Plus with an external battery, some protein bars, etc. on Sunday rides on the tank of my 2014 Triumph Bonneville.
This does the trick
The magnets are sturdy and the safety strap is just long enough to position the bag properly.
I haven't yet gotten caught in the rain, but the rain fly looks like it will perform well.
The build quality and materials are solid and the bottom with the magnets is soft enough that it will be gentle on your tank. Just make sure you clean the tank and the bottom of the bag before you put it on to avoid abrasions from dust, dead bugs, etc.
My only (very minor) gripe about this bag is the shape of the "GPS" pocket. It can really only support a GPS device with a 4:3 orientation. That means modern smartphones will not work.
I found a use for it (I keep optical wipes in that pocket, to clean the bugs off my face shield) but it would have been nice to be able to insert my iPhone.

Meets expectations and is exactly what I was looking for.
I ride a 2014 Ninja 650 and I just wanted something to hold my gloves, earplugs, parking pass, and disc brake. This does an excellent job of doing so and there's still plenty of room to spare. The magnets hold well and there's another buckle that you can wrap around the handle bar yoke. Only downsides to this product that I've encountered is its' position on my bike and the small size of the GPS pocket. The bag sits right above the fuel cap so I have to move it to refuel and it also prevents me from getting aero under the windshield. This is pretty much expected from any tank bag so its not really even a complaint.

Doesn't seem very secure
This is the first tank bag I've ever purchased (for my first bike), so maybe I'm missing something, but the magnets don't seem very strong at all. I ride a Triumph Legend TT, so not sure if a differently shaped tank would help, but I am a little nervous about the bag staying in place as it is difficult/impossible to have all four magnets making complete contact with the tank.
Other than that, the bag is great, nice sice for a few small things, doesn't get in my way of seeing the controls.

Great Small Tank Bag
I bought this because I need something relatively small that can hold my wallet, keys, lunch and phones for work and that is portable enough I can bring it inside with little hassle.
This does just that. As a bonus it came with a sunglasses holder inside the bag and a rain cover should it start pouring while out on the road. I've used it for a few days now and everything seems to work flawlessly. The popup pocket for smartphones is nice - it handles my S3 okay; I use an otterbox defender on my phone, so it's a little snug lengthwise, but not enough to be any huge issues.
This does not have straps to make this into a backpack off the bike, but really I just needed something I could toss in the fridge and this is small enough to do that at work.
It's handled the elements and road time very well also - I would recommend this to people looking for a great bag without the great price!
