Giant Loop Fandango Pro Tank Bag
Best tank bag for dual sport bikes
really nice bag. fits well, has good features and top quality materials.
I thought it would be a bit bigger and it's pushing the price limit. at 230.00 it's a bit over-priced in my opinion but there is nothing better so I'm pleased with my purchase.
Would buy 2-3 more for my other bikes if the price was a bit lower.
The fact that i can buy the interchangeable base pads makes using it on other bikes a snap.

I honestly don't know what Giant Loop could've done to make me like this bag more. Fits my Honda CB500x perfectly -- great design, quality & construction.

Nice sized tank bag for the BMW R1200GS
Was looking for something more versatile to Install on my 2010 R1200GS than the BMW offerings. The tank bag is proportioned well to fit atop the adventure styled bike, large enough to be useful, but not so large as to interfere with the handlebar movement or bar mounted controls. The design allows a range of front to back positions on the tank with adequate length in the straps and a neat stowing system on the tank platform. This has worked out well as I have been able to quickly move it to similar bikes when traveling and using other models. The bag is well constructed and the tunnel for a power / charging cable has been utilized with a handle bar mounted USB receptacle. I will say, snaking the cable through the labyrinth at the front of the bag is a bit of a challenge, the rubber grommets making ti something you want to do once and leave in place. The internal diver works well to keep things organized and convenient. Have used it in light rain without an external or internal cover and pleased with the performance on the unaired bike. The reattachment of the zipper after fueling requires some fines, but believe that is a function al issue with zippers, rather than the design or manufacture of the bag itself. Very good value for the money compared to the factory options.

Looks good, works well, easy to use
I bought this for my 14 Tiger 800XC. It fits great once you get it in the right position and the straps allow for easy placement. The bag zips on and off the harness really easily with the oversized zippers and I have been in a couple of heavy rain storms and although I never doubted it, it held up 100% dry inside. I love the look and will probably get the GL dry bags to match in grey for my Green tiger.
I don't use the clear compartment for my iPhone GPS, I stick to the RAM mounts for that, the iPhone gets hot and is hard to read looking straight up. But for maps, directions and other quick reading reminders the clear plastic is perfect.
The handle works great for carrying and it is so easy to get on and off you will take it off whenever you leave the bike if you are carrying some valuables in it (phones, wallet, house keys).
I would buy this again for sure, I think I made the right choice between size, looks and durability.

Easy to use, top quality
I ride a Triumph Tiger XC (2014) and this tank bag fits perfectly. Requires no adjustment other than an initial fitting of the harness, which took about 5 minutes. The zips allowing partial removal of the bag are great for fuel stops. The bag is totally secure. I've had a couple of drops on dirt and nothing out of place. Very good product!

Great little tank bag for unobtrusive riding
This little tank bag does not impede progress down the trail. Fitted to my HP2 and had great success. The pros: size and profile, ease for fuel fill up, stays in place under all circumstances( tropical storm riding no problem), light weight, easy to access, dial smart phone through map pouch plastic, perfect pockets for boarder crossings when you need quick access to passport or ferry tickets... Cons: not water proof ( they don't claim it to be but I may want to add seam seal for my next trip), size is compact enough for gloves and a few odds and ends. All in all love it but it could be slightly improved upon if made more water resistant.

The mounting, weather resistant material and quality materials are all standouts on the Fandango Pro Tank Bag
I have had tank bags before, usually larger ones ( 12 - 15+L)
This time around I wanted something that was easily accessible, simple in design, did not require a rain cover and made of high quality components. I didn't mind that it was smaller, because the layout and ease of access were the important points of my choice.
My search narrowed to just 2 tank bags, the Wolfman Blackhawk and the Giant Loop Fandango Pro. Thought about it for 2 months reading every review possible. One thing stood out, the Fandango mounting system; it allows you to easily pull one zipper and flip the bag to the side to fill the tank !
The other thing that sealed it, was the bag does not require a rain cover. I commute everyday, here in the Northeast the weather is not always predictable…
I have a 2008 Buell Ulysses, the bag mount installed in 15 minutes, the bag installed on the mount in 15 seconds, no issues… Actually the instructions aren't that bad, I did use their suggestion of securing the tag ends of the straps when done. The mount is rock solid, the bag has a little play side to side through the mounting zippers, which is nice when installing so you can engage the zipper with little effort.
The design, material and workmanship are first rate, this bag was made for an experienced rider that knows what he or she doesn't want. I cannot comment on long term use, but the quality is much better than the European factory bags that I'm used to. Located in an area that is void of high quality MC gear, on-line purchasing was my only option. Revzilla is now my first choice… thanks guys !

Well built tank bag
Works great on my Husky 511 which has a flat seat, but it is really hard to mount on my Honda XR650R. The velcro partitioning system is awesome, and keeps my camera from moving around. It is really easy to zip on and off the bike, so you can carry the bag around with you (it has a handle on it as well).
