Giant Loop Diablo Tank Bag
I ride a F800GS and have had other bags and they were just too big and got in the way when you stand on the pegs. This bag is perfect for small important items that you want easy access too and it doesn't interfere when you ware on the pegs. I can turn my handlebars from stop to stop without interference from the bag either. The bag comes with seam sealer and I took the time to go ahead and seal the seams. Not a big job, but I feel like everyone else..... It really should come from the factory already sealed. This bag is an awesome fit for me, the F800GS, and my needs.

Awesome bag for anyone looking for a smaller size tank bag
This is an awesome little bag. I have it on my Triumph Tiger 800. Good construction and well thought out amenities. The map pocket view is nice and large. The ability to unzip one side and flop the bag over for refueling works great and is very convenient. Is a handy bag for several items, so when stopped, you can just unzip and grab what's necessary such as a wallet at toll booths, camera, spare gloves, lip balm, maps, disc lock, etc. I seam sealed mine with the supplied tube of sealant. It has been through a couple average rains with no leakage whatsoever. Highly recommended.

Obvious design flaw
I knew within 30 seconds of opening the box that I would be returning this tank bag. Great materials, nice shape, but...the large zipper that holds the tank bag to the straps has a large metal pull tab on it. When I put the bag in place, the metal tab flops over onto the painted surface of my tank. Maybe on a dirt bike with a plastic tank, this is no big deal, but I bought this bag to use on a BMW that I like to keep looking reasonably nice.
I suppose I could secure it with duct tape or something, but for $155 I expect a solution, not a poorly executed design that I need to "make work." What a disappointment.

I was looking for a smaller tank bag that offered a transparent map pannel. While it was not cheap, I was impressed with the build quality. Worth every penny! Additionally the ease of access for fueling was greatly appreciated. Great product! Revzilla's delivery came well packed and very quickly. Great experiance!

Perfect for the R1200GSA
Excellent tank bag. Works very well with the R1200GSA. Excellent construction. I expect years of use from this bag.

Tuff as nails. PERFECT!!!
Bought this to fit a Breva 750 and am not at all disappointed Anyone looking, it is about the size of a Joe Rocket Manta tank bag. Zippers are top notch. Simple. Not a lot of pockets that are too small. The ease shown in the video for fueling is dead on. Would not hesitate to buy again.

Top of the line bag.
If you plan on really getting out of the driveway this is the bag you want. Very rugged and while not tested yet should be much more weather proof than most others I looked at. Fit my KLX fine but you do have to pay attention to where you run the straps. Expensive but worth it if you need the performance.

Just the thing... when you've got other options
If you've got marginal storage capability elsewhere on the bike, you probably want to go for (at least) the next size up. But on my new Multistrada 1200 S Touring (which comes with panniers and now has the optional top box), this is just the thing for essential items, such as floss, breath mints, or maybe a Glock 9 (just kidding about that last part -- please do not throw shots at errant cagers, it's very bad form). The build quality is very good to excellent, and while I haven't had it out in the rain yet, I did take the time to seal the seams (with the very thoughtful brush & sealer kit provided by the manufacturer. Being made (mostly) of dry bag material with water-resistent zipper seals, it looks like it would make it through a monsoon with your camera, cell, gps, etc. safe & dry at the end of your ride. While I wasn't sure about the look of the long straps at first, I got a couple 2nd opinions from my wife and a friend, who thought it looked fine. Now I do, too. Installation was a breeze, and it's very stable at speed. Take the time to be sure you're not catching any wiring in the straps when you're installing it, and you'll be fine. Not including the seam sealing, the whole job took maybe 15 minutes. It holds all the stuff you really need close at hand, provided you've got a tail bag, duffel, or panniers for larger/bulkier items. Easy access to the gas cap as well, and unzipping it 2/3rds of the way when filling up (bag "folds" / hangs off to the side) ensures that your pricey gadgets don't crash to the ground, as is possible with the bags that attach via a locking ring on your gas cap and screw off completely at the gas station -- a cleaner look on those for sure, but dicey unless you set 'em on the ground when gassing up. Excellent fit on the Multi, btw -- it looks "of a piece" when installed. All in all, a well-constructed, useful, and very nice bit of kit.
