Icon Urban Tank Bag 4.4 5 48 48
A versatile bag with a budget. WARNING: THIS IS A LONG REVIEW. Like a school paper. Minus the anxiety. The Icon Urban Tank Bag is pretty much a backpack with magnets. There is one large compartment with a pair if zippers that open from side to side. Two smaller compartments on the side, a medium clear compartment on front, and there is also a compartment on the bottom. First, the main compartment is very basic, it's just a large compartment. You could fit two large loaves of bread side by side without crushing them. There is also a large flap inside, but it's only kept closed by a small piece of Velcro on the top center, which means small things will fall out anyway if the backpack is not standing upright. Also, since the flap tends to fall over when opening the backpack fully, things will just slide out anyway. I do not use that flap anymore. The smaller, side compartments, I also don't use. They seem great for holding things such as a bottle of aspirin or maybe small tools, but it's really not THAT great. Since the bag is so large, having things bulge from those bags means that the bag will get in the way a lot when used as a tank bag. I'm sure they'll be useful if used as a backpack, however. Third, the clear compartment is pretty neat. It can hold things you don't want scattering around on the large compartment. I'm not too fond of it being clear though, as everyone can see what's inside. It's great for maps though, if you don't mind looking down to your tank that is. One thing to note if you live on a hot environment like i do: Do not put a phone there. It traps heat inside, and may cause it to overheat. Same goes for chocolate. Especially when it's in a semi-open wrapper. This may or may not have been a serious problem for me one day. It's also somewhat easy to clean. The lower compartment is also pretty neat, but not suitable for small objects such as pens. There is a small net inside meant to keep things in place, i keep aspirin in it. Mind what you put in there, as certain objects may cause the bag to no longer stand upright. Also, there is a small hole on the bottom with a metal ring. The hole is about a centimeter on diameter. Pens WILL go through. When used as a tank bag, it tends to hold well in place as long as the tank and bag are both clean. Take care to remove dirt before sticking the bag to the tank, as the magnets may rub dirt against the paint and scratch the tank. Even with 7 pounds of meat, the bag held mostly in place. Though it did slide into me when accelerating hard. Same when carrying two large textbooks(Think high school math books.) However, the bag does include a strap that can be wrapped on the handlebars and properly adjusted. The strap is solid and the sun hasn't cooked mine despite being exposed 24/7 for a few months. I really recommend taking care when setting up the strap. It's the last measure to prevent the bag from falling. Don't get me wrong though, the bag holds well. I've even forgotten to use the strap a few times and didn't even realize. Oh, and make sure the magnets are facing the right way! They're MUCH stronger on one side than the other. Also, I mounted mine on a gen 3 SV650. It fits but slopes back a bit since that's how the tank is. This was everything notable I remember about the bag. I hope I have helped you make a decision.

I bought this for my brand new bike Thinking I need something reliable I bought this bag. The clear plastic is already breaking at the outside. the worst thing is it scratched up my brand new bike. I'm talking big deep scratches. I wish they would have put the rubber part where the magnets are. I'm still mad so much money for a bag that ends up damaging my bike. Even so I like the style, I'm extremely disappointed :( March 17, 2015
very easy to use Very helpful to carry around my lunch and gym clothes February 3, 2015
Holds on as tight! I got this for my 2012 R1 and it just fits. Usually have clothes in it for my out of town trips and it holds on tight. Also gives you something to rest on when your just cruising. I have had a 12 pack in it(out of box of course) and it held on, I was very careful around turns though. I have never used the helmet sling as im not a fan of things bouncing off me bum. Overall great product. The pouches for sun glasses are handy as the sun sets and top pouch is great for wallet and house keys. December 22, 2014
Does its job I opted for the cityscape graphic over boring black. It's hardly noticable. Does its job, easy access pocket for quick reaching stuff. easy to move out of the way to fuel up. much better than having to lug a backpack around November 19, 2014
Nice bag, but with some design issues. This is a decent bag. The magnets are plenty strong and the non-skid backing is grippy without scratching. Unfortunately it has these big half circle pockets on the sides that hit me right in the elbows while riding. Also, the inner pockets (on the inside top flap) have no zippers or closures at all, which means that everything falls out while riding. Not very practical for commuting with a laptop and work items. It looks good and if you're going to stuff it with clothing or soft items it's an ok bag. October 23, 2014
Great product! I've been using this tank bag daily for the last 3 months and it's pretty durable and very versatile. Well done icon. September 12, 2014
Great for short rides My ride- Street Triple R Works great to hold a change of clothes or other random items. However magnets are not super strong and don't stick to the tank that well. With light loads the bag works great because the rubbery surface sticks to the tank well. If I start caring some heavy groceries sometimes the bag moves out of place. Luckily the safety strap keeps it from falling off. in the end- Great for a commute to school, work or friends house. I would not use this product for any long adventure riding however.

Julio M: I wanted a bag that was versatile. This one is good for long trips, as the capacity is good and can be placed on the tank. It's also great for school. May 11, 2015
David K: good reviews.. I liked the helmet carrying ability... good size... magnetic fastening Apr 3, 2015

Joseph W: It's a tank bag and can also be quickly converted into a backpack. I also like the helmet carrying capability. Sep 18, 2014
tyler s: Good size, can carry school books, turns into backpack. Awesome. Aug 25, 2014
Brandon H: Need a good bag for when I commute to work to carry protein shakes and etc. So that I wasnt bogged down with a backpack. Jul 30, 2014
Cesar A: I really like the quality of the product as well the size of it, which allows me to take my laptop, what I was not able to do with other tank bags. Jul 7, 2014
Mark W: I need a tank bag that I can use as a back pack. I found only 3 options available. This one looked good. I can use a waterproof cover from an old bag. Standard tank bags are one dimensional. It will be nice to collect my valuable in one bag and have with me when I leave my bike in parking lots. Jun 23, 2014
Natalia G: I really like this tank / back pack recommend it. The helmet flap that attaches your helmet to the bottom of the backpack section is great when u don't want to leave ur helmet. The clear pocket can hold a cell iPod or GPS on the tank & can be operated through thr plastic w gloves on while riding so that's really nice. The side & bottom pockets are nice for organizing things & the inside holds a laptop & enough for an overnight trip. It's not waterproof. Jun 16, 2014
Phil P: Heavy construction, concealable shoulder straps, carrying pockets, magnetic attachment for tank Jun 13, 2014
Ruben G: carry my laptop and assorted items on my commuter to work. Like the bag in general because even loaded down it stays put. There is a snap attached to the handlebars so even if it would come lose, which it wont, it will remain attached to the bike.

I don't use the back pack functionality on a daily basis but it was nice to have in winter.

Side pouches are too bulky - they hit my horn and emergency lights when maneuvering in the driveway.

Clinton R: I have this bag and it is very spacious. There's no reason why you shouldn't be able to fit your lunch and gym clothes in there. I have a 2012 R1 and I don't use the front two magnets because the front part of my tank is plastic. I just use the rear two magnets and it stays steady and doesn't flop around or anything.

ahmed d: I like this bag, it is the right size and price. I carry everything I need in it for work, lunch, change of clothes etc.. and the side pockets come in handy, anything bigger would be a little too much. I use it on a 96 cbr 1000f, even tried it on my honda vtx tank. Magnets work very well on my tanks. Aug 28, 2013

Jun 27, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Phil P: Text books can be heavy. If you pack the bag where they don't shift around then I think it'll be fine, plus you can use the top detachable strap to anchor the bag.

I noticed on leaning turns, like through an intersection, that I just leaned forward a bit, if I thought it would shift, but the magnets kept everything in place if its packed securely.

Michel C: Hi Joseph the magnet are really strong. I never used the extra link ( tie) that you can attach to the handle. I travel with some clothes in, plus I pad small tool and a large bottle of water and never feel that the magnet can give up. It should be a goos choice for you.

Enjoy it.

Thomas H: I don't think so - My 10 x 12-13'' laptop is a perfect fit - it may - but you've got to remember that the shape of the tank will make it harder to squeeze a large laptop into the bag. Aug 20, 2013

Dominick S asked: The element of this bag that holds your helmet, does this part have a way for the chin strap of the helmet to secure to anything ? Essentially I am curious how secure a helmet is in the helmet pouch part? Jun 24, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jacky C: There is no element that specifically allows for your helmet chin strap to loop through when in carrying position.

If you can imagine a flap the size of the back side of this backpack flipping out and wrapping around the helmet, that's how it is secured. The material that meets the helmet is a little bit grippy and should keep your helmet in place just fine.

Salvatore D: There's not really a spot to use the helmet strap to secure it. I never use the helmet holder or back pack feature of this bag. I only use it as a tank bag for extra clothes and rain gear. Check out some youtube videos on this tank bag for better visuals on how it works. Revzilla has a video too. Jun 24, 2014

A shopper asked: Or is the bag water resistant enough to keep things inside dry during heavy rain? Dec 27, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The Icon Urban Tank Bag does not come with a rain liner or cover. The nylon exterior is water resistant, however water resistant does not mean waterproof. We would not recommend storing your laptop in there during a hurricane. That is what a dry-bag, such as a Kriega, is designed for. Dec 28, 2012
Reply to RevZilla Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Lawlberg: No rain cover - haven't tested it in the rain but it is made with water resistant fabric and zippers and it feels like it would do a good job. Might get a little wet if you're sitting still in a torrential downpour, but for your average rain, I'd trust the bag. May 13, 2013

Alden P: I purchased a X-Small Mountainsmith Rain Cover that worked perfectly for this bag. The dimensions on that were 14 by 20 by 7.5 inches (W x H x D). It fit snug with the bag fully loaded (camera bag, two water bottles, bear spray, flashlight, maps, solar charger, etc...), but that is what you want. A larger cover would have been a pain as any slack is going to wave wildly in the wind and cause the cover to loosen. The rain cover also fit nicely inside the bottom zip compartment. Nov 24, 2014

Thang D: Thanks for the suggestion. I picked up the "Oxford Hi Viz Bright Cover" which was much too small for this Icon backpack. Dec 5, 2014
A s: AFAIK Icon doesn't make a rain cover specifically designed for this bag, so if you can find something water proof to protect it, it'll be third party.

Also, the plastic sleeve won't provide any decent protection against moisture. I got caught in the rain once, pretty heavy, and I had a tablet in the top transparent pocket, and was just hoping that it might hold together, but it didn't. Thats' not a complaint, just an anecdote.

RevZilla: With any tank bag, we would recommend checking the dimensions of your tank prior to ordering.

That being said, the Icon Urban Tank Bag measures 16" X 14" X 8" which runs on the Medium to Large side when compared to other tank bags.

Therefore, we would recommend you measure your particular gas tank to determine whether or not the bag would be a proper fit for your bike.
