Icon Urban Tank Bag
Great bag for the price
This is a pretty cool tank bag. I like the styling, and it has plenty of room for everything I need to travel to work and some longer trips. You could squeeze in at least one set of clothes, maybe 2.
I ride a 2012 Yamaha FZ6R and the bag fits nicely between the bars. Although if you fill it too much, the magnets have trouble reaching the tank, but when they do reach, they stick pretty hard.
Overall I like this bag. Very nice.

Great Backpack, Horrible Tankbag
I'm very disappointed in RezVilla, but in regards to the bag itself, it seems like a nice "backpack". The Icon bag DOES NOT magnetize to the 2014 Yamaha Bolt (XV950). I'm not sure too many other bikes either, as the magnets are small. I lightly pushed the bag off my bike, so at 20mph, it's sure to fly off! I learned the hard way and have to send back an unused bag minus the return shipping. Go to a local store first and see if the magnets actually work on your bike!

Only had the bag for about a month, but it's just about perfect. I can fit a change of clothes and a 15" Mac Pro Retina. Perfect for me and my bike. Love it.

My first tank bag. I found it very easy to use. Moved the weight from my shoulders to the tank making long trips much nicer. Really liked the map window however was wishing it was just a touch wider to allow regular 8.5x11 printer paper to slide into the spot easier. Only real complaint was the bag slid around a couple of times to the point it almost fell off once. The magnets don't seem to be gripping as strong as I would like6. I am looking for some stronger strength magnets. If that is fixed this becomes a very nice product.

The ONLY negative I have with this bag is that the helmet carrier functionality could use a slightly larger panel. Otherwise, it's roomy, stays exactly where I put it, and is easy to get on and off. Highly recommended.

Perfect for me
This bag is perfect for what I needed. It is just big enough to fit my 15" MacBook on the way to work, and my 3xl Icon Contra jacket fits in while I am at work. It takes a little long to switch from tank bag to backpack for my taste, but that's to be expected. Also, it's not really secured from being stolen if you leave it on your bike, but if you go to your local police station they will give you a free gun lock that fits perfectly through the zipper pulls to secure it to the bike.

The Icon Tankbag is a good functional bag.
I could however, have sidewalls to hold its shape. No flimsie cardboard pieces. some nice and firm/lasting.

Excellent tank bag
It's hard to find faults with this bag. I've only had it for a couple of weeks but have have gone over 1000 miles with it attached and fully loaded. On a recent 800+ mile trip it was my only bag for my belongings. It made it through torrential rains that lasted over 100 miles and while there was standing water on the outside of the bag, the inside only got damp around the zippers; which I think was my fault as I forgot to flip the zipper covers over.
The bag is attached to my '97 Ninja 500 and it's quite large for the tank. With it completely full I did find it difficult to turn the bike handles when getting around parking lots as they would hit the bag; however, this is really no fault of the bag. I purchased a large bag with the intent of filling it to capacity and have a smaller bike, so I can't complain about this. The large plastic window on the front was quite handy for directions I had written down. On my recent trip the bag weighed a good 30-40lbs loaded and the magnets held it securely to the tank without issue. It was still easy to remove from the tank without issue.
Additionally, converting to a backpack was extremely handy as the bag needed to come with me for a couple of lengthy stops on my travels.
The bag was a bit pricey but has served me very well so far. I'll have to see how well it holds up over time.
