Givi 3D603 Tanklock Tankbag
Good compact tank bag with innovative quick install & removal
Compact but somehow still holds a decent amount of gear. Great for phone, wallet, disc lock, extra pair of gloves and a small water bottle - just the basics. Removes in just a second with Givi's slick quick detach system. Included rain cover is surprisingly effective.

It will do. I dont really like the mounting ring though ? The SW-Motech mount ring is much more user friendly.
I ought this for my trip out west coming up in Oct. I have a BMW R1100Rs and the gas cap mount id flush with the tank. The set screws are flush so when I fit the GIVI mount ring it didnt work out very well. So I had to use a SW_motech mount and just Gorilla glued the GIVI to it the drilled out the holes to fit the set screws. Seems to be okay, but I'd rather have a stock mount, next time...Revzilla had the best price for new,and the free shipping was the deal sealer. Thanks guy's/gal's Don

Great small tank bag
This is an impressive small tank bag. If you need to carry unfolded documents, get the larger bag; but if you want a great place to put glasses, garage door opener, wheel and helmet locks, spare towel, Go Pro, and all that stuff, this is a perfect bag. It has stayed dry through some heavy rains, has survived me laying on top of it many times, is very easy to remove and attach. I'll probably get the larger one, too, for times when I don't want to use a backpack for bigger items.

This is a fantastic system. Makes taking the bag with me so easy. I use it on every ride, commuting to work everyday.

Useful and versatile
Bought this for a 2013 BMW F800GS and got the specific 'tank' bracket to install it. Bracket is a bit annoying to install and I had to add spacers to to the stand-offs to not have the metal on the bracket rub against my paint.
The bag itself is fairly spacious for such a small bag. I can fit a 20 Oz water bottle in there, two granola bars, keys, wallet, cell phone, locking wire for helmet and jacket, half roll of TP, GPS and small battery power pack for my cell phone.
It locks on the bracket securely. The cell phone compartment under the plastic window will fit a 5" Nexus 5 cell phone in a small case, but it is a tight fit. Works better without the case. However, everything is black and enclosed and gets really hot; After 30 min in the compartment in the sun my phone was very hot and I had to take it out as I was worried it would be damaged. Also, unless you leave the phone on all the time, you have no way of hitting the on/off button while it is in the compartment.
Bag comes with shoulder sling and rain cover, plus small money pocket that clips on top of bag itself.

Perfect for my Needs
I searched hi and low for a Tanklock Tankbag that was not huge and had a space for my smartphone. (Galaxy S5) The Givi 3D603 fit the bill perfectly. It is well made, doesn't inhibit my view (installed on a 2015 R1200RT) and doesn't hit my chest while riding. The phone sleeve is perfect as well.
The only modifications I would like to see would be a preset place to run electric (no biggie, I'll just make a small incision) and for it to be waterproof so I don't have to fool with the cover. I'd gladly pay a little more to have these modifications...especially the waterproof feature.
All in all, a great product from the best online motorcycle product company in the world. Keep it up Revzilla!

I like the bag
If you're looking for a small unobtrusive tank bag, this is a good choice. It is about as small as a person can get at 4 L. I've found it fine for glasses, keys, garage door opener, visor cleaner and cleaning cloths, registration and insurance, cell phone, etc. The installation is very easy, provided they have a kit that will fit and removal from the bike is less than a second. I really like that it is held up off the tank by the mounting kit so there won't be any scratches. The semi rigid style is also very nice. It holds it's shape well while still having flexibility if it is banged a bit. A note, on my Triumph Tiger 800 XC, the handlebars hit the bag a little. It doesn't hinder control or limit steering but contact can be made. I haven't had the bag long enough to know much about durability, but it seems well constructed. The bag is pricey, but it checked the most boxes on my want/need list so I got it. I'm content with the price/value/utility of the bag.
