Givi XS307 Tanklock Tankbag
Great bag, good size, adjustable.
I bought this bag (and mounting system) after using a magnetic bag for years. I saw it installed on a friends bike and immediately saw the value and convenience. The lock system is quick and secure. The bag is a good size - I fit a flashlight, GPS case, sunglasses, rally placards, a couple bottles of water and a snack without issue. The window is large enough for a 8.5x11 piece of paper folded in half - you can see the entire sheet that way. The bag has a liner on the inside that I find marginally annoying since it doesn't seem to serve me any purpose.
The bag is not waterproof unless you install the included rain cover. I kind of wish it had a few pockets on the inside to stash stuff like keys, cell phone, etc. Also wish the hole for a power cord entered through the main part of the bag instead of the map compartment on top - I just want to charge my device, and don't need to see it.
Bag interferes with full lock on handlebars on my 2014 FJR. I have the mounting plate on the bottom of the bag adjusted all the way forward (so the bags sets as far back as possible). The handlebars can go full lock, but the horn switch and hazard button may be actuated by the bag, and I had to slightly reposition my GPS mount to keep it out of the way. Something to consider - not a show-stopper for me but minority annoying.
Like others, I cut the strap off the front of the bag.
Overall, great bag with very good capacity.

GIVI XS307 for Multistrada
Good fit and great amount of space on the tank. I love being able to ride without a backpack.

Great Bike-Specific Tank Bag
I bought this tank bag for my 2015 BMW S1000R and I have been very pleased with it. I use the bike for daily commuting and it is the perfect size for fitting everything I need in the bag and can actually be stuffed with a lot more than you might think. I would definitely recommend this bag if you need a great around town bag. I haven't done any long trips yet but I've already used the bag to rest my chin on while on long highway stints (gotta love cruise control).

Good Product for the Money
Got tire of magnetic tank bags scratching my tanks. So when I purchased a new bike, I went with the tank lock system. The XS307 is a nice sized tank bag. The stitching and zippers are well made, and I like the fact that you can keep your things extra dry with the inner liner. I wish the clear map window was larger, though. I comes with an attachable larger map/tablet window, but when that is installed, it is awkward to get into the tank bag. Better to just put a larger map window lid on the bag.
Also, the carrying strap should be detachable. I have to zip tie the strap and it just dangles in the front of the bag.
But overall, I like this product and it is a good buy for the money.

Good case, highly recommend!
I got this case/bag to use as a lunchbag. I stow my pants/coat in one side case and keep my gym bag in the other...it's just the right size for a 60 oz bottle of tea, a tupperware container for food, and my other stuff (gloves, phone charger, etc). I had to modify the tankring to get it to fit, but after that I've had no issues at all. It's never come unlatched unintentionally and it makes riding convenient...good product!

Great bag, could be awesome with a few changes
I got this bag because my tank has a plastic cover and a magnetic bag wouldn't work. Easy to install, easily clicks on to the flange, just the right size for me, and seems durable enough. Some things that would make the bag awesome: change the strap on the front so that I can just click it to the bag and disconnect instead of fishing it through every time (I ended up cutting it off). Also, by making it a click on/off it won't be dragging on the ground as I carry the bag. Get rid of the inner liner (kind of pointless if you have that yellow cover). Make it so that you can lock the bag to the flange from inside the bag. That way if you lock the zipper then they wouldn't be able to take the bag off of the bike. Overall it's a great bag, just some features that would make it awesome.

Givi XS 307 Tank bag/ 2015 Yamaha FJ-09
This tank bag works great, the quick lock is awesome. Comes with some adjustment for the perfect fit. All the materials and zippers appear to be top notch. The XS-307 is the right size for a day trip IMO, I think the larger XS-308 would be better for traveling.
