Giant Loop Fandango Pro Tank Bag
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).

Well designed and constructed tankbag
After I bit of frustration with the mounting directions, I successfully added the bag to my 2012 1200GS. Forget the tiny instructions and picture for mounting on a 1200 GS. See my photo for the best place to attach the lower straps.
The bag holds everything I need - camera, small binos, tire gauge, advil, maps, phone, etc. but doesn't seem "huge" while riding. I like the adjustability of the divider for the main compartment. And I have lots of dividers from old camera bags, so I can divide it even more. The bag sits well up on the gas tank cover, and has very easy access to the gas cap. But best of all, it's shape and position are perfect for riding while standing up. Other bags I tried got in the way of leaning forward. This one is perfect!

Easy to use, well made and well thought out.
The bag is easily mounted without any movement. Its solid, has all sealed seams, zippers are heavy duty and material is water proof.
It was well thought out with ways of running electrical to it via the front velcro access port.
I plan on running this 100% of the time i ride!
