Icon Urban Tank Bag
Great bag for on the go
I've had this bag for a couple of months, and so far everything is working out great. I use it to tote my laptop to and from work. I haven't used the bag in the rain, so I'm not sure how it handles water.
The magnets are strong, and I don't worry about the bag sliding off. The grip under the bag is holding up well too.

don't leave home without it
Saddle bags would ruin the sleek lines of my beautiful yamaha warrior and wearing backpacks with food and all kinds of stuff is no fun so I figured a tank bag was the way to go. It looks great and pretty minimalistic. I use my bike to commute to work and since in a news cameraman I bring alot of stuff with me. In it I pack a small cooler bag, water, chargers, extra layers etc. This bag suprisingly fits alot. I use the clear pocket to put my phone in and use navigation. It moves around so you gotta figure how to keep it in place. I have hit 100 mph+++ and the magnets stick pretty well. It does shift around your tank depending what you have in there but not a big problem. I've had it for 3 months and use it heavily, the bag still looks good. I get all kinds of compliments on this bag and people don't even know its a tank bag. They just think it's a cool gear bag. make sure the magnet part is clean and there is no dirt or dust on your tank and your paint should be fine. This bag is awsome and icon hit a home run with this. Also I love the side pockets. Can't speak on the back pack part. I've used that function once when I first got it. This bag is great just buy it already! !

Overall excellent Tank Bag
This is a great bag with lots of storage space. The magnets are very strong and the bag doesn't seem to move at all even at speeds of 80 or 90. The only warning i have is be sure not to let rocks get on the magnets or it WILL SCRATCH YOUR TANK!

Does the job and looks cooler than the rest
I just got back from a 700km weekend only using the Icon Urban Tank Bag for luggage on my Honda CB1300S. The bag was great. I did one stretch were I sat on 150kmph for hours on end but the bag held fast.
I'm in Australia and got the bag in 5 days.

I've had this bag for about 3 weeks and basically use it every time I ride (range from 3-6 days a week). The bag itself is nice and the magnets are very strong! I like the support strap that you can connect to your handlebars as an added safety measure. I've been able to hold a whole gym outfit (sweatpants, shirt, pair of sneakers) in the main pocket and still have room in the remaining pockets for smaller things. For me, it's a good day trip/possible weekend trip bag.
My only gripe with the bag is that some of the stitching has come undone in areas that don't affect the function of the bag, but it does have me worried about the durability of the bag.

Great product to take pressure off your back.
I've only had this bag a few weeks, and I say wow. This bag is awesome, I use it in a Honda CBR 500. The tank is magnetic but there is some plastic on it, but it holds strong even tho I only use 2 magnets. Haven't used as a back pack yet but I tried it and its comfortable. Would recommend if you are tired of having a sweaty back in the summer, and want less pressure on lower back.

On Triumph "modern classics"
This bag seems to be pretty durable, has tons of room, does not obstruct steering or access to the controls, the magnets are quite strong hold well. My only gripe is that the rubber knee pads on my scrambler (also on bonnevilles and thruxtons) prevent the aft half of the bag's magnets from fully hugging the tank like the front two do.
Other than that, this is a solid product.

Perfect size, perfect fit, very comfortable
This is an excellent tank bag, grips very well on the tank, about 29 liters of capacity is more than enough for a trip, side and bottom pockets hace easy access, my 10" tablet runs perfect through the plastic of the map pocket, and it is very comfortable as a backpack, excellent value for money, no drawbacks so far.
I would recomend it.
