Giant Loop Zigzag Handlebar Bag
Excellent alternative to tankbag
Very cool handlebar bag. Fits perfectly on my GS handlebars - I use primarily as an alternative to a tankbag on short trips. Very easy on/off depending on if I want a tank bag or handlebar bag on the bike that day. Size is perfect for my application - fits my wallet, house keys, iphone, garage door opener and some "necessities" (earplugs, chapstick), but thats about it. There is a small mesh divider, which holds the smaller items and keeps them from rattling around. Fit and finish is solid, very well made. Attachment to the bike is also well designed, velco holds it in place, and the straps are then lashed down so there is no way the velcro could come undone. On the pricier side for a small bag, but its clearly made well and should last.

It has side loops allowing you to use wire ties to fully stretch the bag for maximum width. Plenty big for Galax 5, wallet, garage door opener plus a tad more.
Works good on Super Tenere. With wire ties on the side, it will not sag & touch gas tank.

Great accessory bag
So far I'm very impressed. It replaced an unnecessarily large tank bag for daily commuting when all I need is sunglasses and my helmet liner. Plus there's room for spare change, a pen light, and a few other small items that may come in handy. It was a little difficult to install since the straps are unforgiving in their placement; had to move a couple accessory mounts a bit to all the straps to secure around the handlebars, but not much.

Great Glove Box For Your Bike
This is exactly what I needed, something that is low profile and fits my handlebars. The bag is super heavy duty with the chunkiest zipper I have ever seen. I store my wallet, phone, meter change, sunglasses, folding hat, (sometimes a small camera) and have room to spare. It's nice to have those items at your finger tips (you are facing the bag) instead of fumbling around with a tail bag while you are still on the bike. The bag does not obscure my view of the instruments or my key, nor does it cover any sort of maintenance access area or rub my tank. This is mounted on my 2004 BMW R1150R. It's a great low profile edition to my bike: The Silver Bullet. Yes, she has a name.
Also, the way that it mounts I could put it in place or one of my hard cases or on the luggage rack, no problem.

Great Made in USA Quality, a little impractical $$$$
Most people who are outfitting a large dual sport spare no expense on equipment, this product will not disappoint on cost ; ) I source all purchases based on MADE IN THE USA first. When purchasing motorcycle luggage I tested both Giant Loop and Wolfman gear, and Giant Loop came out ahead in percieved durability and finish- its tough stuff and this bag is no different.
However, I find that when mounted on my KTM 450XC there is very little useable space due to the curve it takes on the handle bar, and because of the protrusion of the mounts into the bag, storage of a smart phone while riding off road would be a terrible idea. It is a great spot for cheap sunglasses, a wallet and registration/ insurance info, trail maps and a pen, but worth it?- not so sure about that. I had to have it because I was actually born in the town of Zig Zag and had 55 bucks burning a hole in my coyote bag...

I was looking for a small bag to carry my cell phone, license & reg. This bag is the perfect size for those items and was easy to install.

Perfect for my needs
I just wanted a place for my wallet and cell phone. This bag is perfect for that. The larger zipper is nice plus. Also finding anything that works on my Moto Guzzi V7 is tough and this product not designed for my style bike works great!
