Giant Loop Diablo Tank Bag
good small bag for the money, I said SMALL
I don't have a lot of cash, so one of my main issues was "how much?". I needed a small bag for pocket stuff: camera, sunglasses, ez-pass, phone, printed directions ... marlboro.
This bag is the right size for that stuff, but not much more. It's easy to strap to the tank of the f800gs. I imagine I will leave the straps on all the time, and zip the bag on and off as needed. Not going to bother to seal the zips. In the position on my bike, it's not going to get that wet in the rain, and if it is pouring I'll put my stuff in a ziplock than trust a smartphone in there. The zips are new and a bit stiff, but they look covered anyway.

Good product, but!
Be careful can scratch and scuff paint if using on a metal tank. You may want to use clear protective tape under bag and straps.

I like this bag. Good fit and just right size.
The bag holds my 35mm camera & wallet. Not big and bulky. Fastens with straps to the frame and fit my 1200GS very good. To fill gas you unzip the bag from base. That might be a problem later but for now works very well. I am very pleased with the bag so far.

just what the doctor ordered
perfect fit, nice color. capacity is great, no interference while maneuvering, wish they seam sealed at the factory, but it is great they sent some sealant with the bag. so far so good.

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!
