Giant Loop Diablo Tank Bag
Good bag for those who don't like tankbags
I've used a few different tank bags over the years, but over time I have realized that I really don't need to have so many odds and ends riding in front of me. As a result, I had these relatively big bags with just a couple of items rattling around inside. This bag gets done what I need - a place to hold a full-size camera, plus maybe a wallet and my smartphone if there are some showers and I'm anxious about them getting damp in my jacket pockets. The harness allows for easy access to the gas cap - an improvement, since it now seems to have a deeper divot for the gas cap access than earlier models.

great bag. fits super on Honda 250 CRF. Ran it during dry season in asia so didn't test the wet weather. But, it kept the dust out. (note, I didn't seal the seams- but seems like simple job). Lubricate the attach zipper with a dry lube (or teflon) as I had a little trouble attaching it at times. expensive, but great quality and perfect size for that type of bike

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.
