Givi 3D603 Tanklock Tankbag
convenient reliable storage
Took it along a 3500 mile trip and had no problems. Conveniently stores small items you may need to access quickly and often.
Was initially concerned about the hassle of taking it off and putting it back on for each gas refill. But it turns out the GIVI Tanklock system was flawless. Tanklock system can be operated with gloved hands
Bag waterproof for a short ride in light drizzle. Serious down pour will require waterproof cover.
Cell phone compartment not of much use. Had hard time fitting my Samsung Galaxy and cover is not touch sensitive so it is not possible to operate device.

Ease of install
I bought this bag for two reasons, the phone holder and the ease of installing it on the bike with the Tank lock System. One negative is that Givi apparently doesn't know that it's Tank Ring fits a lot of bikes. If you look at their website or call customer support they'll tell you they don't have a ring that fits the KTM Superduke 1290. Well, the BF-11 fits the KTM, the Ducati Multistrada and BMW K1200GT. I know this because I’ve installed it on all of these bikes and it works like a champ. I love being able to install the tank ring on all of my bikes and move the bag back and forth. In fact, since this bag is pretty small I ended up also buying the 3D604 bag which is larger. I’m going on a 1400-mile trip tomorrow so I’ll see how this tank bag holds up.

Perfect for long and short distance riding
Incredibly easy to install and use. Attaches and detaches easily and the shoulder strap is convenient for carrying it around with you,

Great little bag, holds all the little things (and not so little) that you want to keep handy
I already had a bigger Tanklock bag for my bike (2010 BMW R1200GS), so there was no new installation required, just snapped into the existing lock.
The size is great for all the things you want to keep close by, incl. a camera, glasses, etc. Just used it on a 2,000 mile trip and could not have been happier.
The only issue I had was with the phone pocket. I have an iPhone 6 and it fits right in. However, after a while riding in sunshine, the phone gets so hot (because of the lack in ventilation and sun exposure) that it shuts down to protect itself. I took it out of the sleeve and just threw it into the bag, that did the trick.
Other than that, I only have positive experiences.

Great Product, Good price
Fits my 2007 Suzuki Bandit 1250. Looks good. Just the right amount of storage for a day trip.

Perfect for personal items
I purchased the Givi 3D603 Tanklock Tankbag to carry my personal items. It is the perfect size and the tanklock system work great. When I stop at a gas station or restaurant I just quickly remove the bag and take it in with me. Only gripe is that it is not waterproof, and accesing your items with the waterproof liner on is a hassle.

Great easy access storage! Perfect for short day rides!
I ordered this because I was looking for some easily accessible storage for small items so I did not have to go in and out of my hard side bags so often on my FJR. I didn't need a huge amount of storage so I went with this bag. It is perfect for keys, sunglasses, wallets and other small items you carry around with you daily. With that said I haven't come anywhere close to filling it up and the interior is much larger than what I thought it would be. If you are looking for large storage for trips this probably will not suit you well. You should opt for the larger version. But for day to day riding this is perfect.
A few additional notes about the bag...
- I have a gps mounted low and in the center of my handlebars. This bag does NOT block my view of the screen. A perk of the bag being smaller.
-The bag is formed and sturdy so it does not move around while riding. Wind has little to no effect on the structure of the bag.
-As easy as it is to pop the bag off the mount you would not think the mount would hold up to high speeds. Let's just say, I know that it does and you should just trust me on this one.
-I didn't see it listed in the specs but you CAN use your phone through the clear plastic cover. It does respond to your fingers but I'm sure this would be dependent on the phone. Works fine with my Galaxy. It is a little less responsive if my phone is in the protective case but it still works.
If I could make one change, it would be to make the plastic tab that releases the bag black instead of its current bright red color. The bag is small so the tab sticks out from underneath. Hopefully this would never happen but it quickly gives a would be thief the answer of how to get the bag off the bike. If it were black and blended with the bag a little better the unsurety of how to remove it may deter them from even trying to begin with. Also the red color just sticks out like a sore thumb underneath the all black bag. Especially on my dark colored motorcycle. These are very small issues and likely would not even be an issue if you purchased the larger bag.
That being said I highly recommend this product. Excellent quality on an excellent product!
