Nelson Rigg CL-1035 Touring Tank Bag
Really nice medium/large bag
I needed a largish strap mount tankbag for my BMW R1100RT and this one was quite reasonably priced. I haven't had it long which is why I scored it a 4 for durability though it looks well made. Being a strap mount it takes a few minutes to install the straps but my tank is plastic so a magnet bag won't work.
It has a nice big, accessible map pocket for those of us that still like to refer to a map.
Only improvement might be some outer side pockets, however these usually tend to honk the horn or engage the starter.

I was looking for a tank bag to do the obvious, hold some loose gear. I didn't want to break the bank so I took a chance on the Nelson Rigg bag. It is a winner! Even if I wear it out in a few years, I can replace it over and over again before I even start to approach the price of the "name brand" bag made for my bike.
The tank bag comes with everything needed to mount to almost any bike and seems well made.

Works as Intended.
In hindsight I probably should have gone with the non-magnetic. Don't get me wrong I think the bag is great, I just didn't think of the potential hazards of having strong magnets and storing my wallet in this bag. So far no issues with any of my cards getting cleared out but it is something to keep in mind if you're looking for a magnetic tank bag. The plastic map pocket is nice but I would imagine this will be the first part of the bag to wear out. Already have some small holes in it. The bag has lots of room, rarely do I need to haul so much stuff that I expand it. Magnets are strong and secure. When not on my bike its magnetized to my metal from door. I can fill it with as much goodies as I want and it doesn't move.

I bought this for touring. Lots of space, very good overall.
Good overall. It does slide around a bit, but that is not a problem unless on rough terrain. On pavement, not problem.

Excellent commute bag.
I bought this for my 2010 Monster 696 so I wouldn't have to wear my backpack everywhere I go. I was hoping this would fit my laptop (MBP Retina), but it does not. Holds a tremendous amount of other stuff though.
The front strap is wrapped around the frame trellis. The back strap is under my seat, connected to the helmet holder loop.
The bottom of the bag isn't particular soft (same material as the rest of the bag), so I double-sided taped a shelf liner to the bottom of the bag so it didn't cause scratches.
Nelson rigg shipped it without the rear strap. Talking to Revzilla CS was great, they had Nelson Rigg ship me a new strap. Unfortunately, that strap was incorrect. So I contact CS again and NR sent me another strap that actually worked. The back and forth with NR was annoying, but I've got a functional bag now after ~1 week of back and forth.

Nice Bag for the Commuter or Tourer
I needed (wanted) a tank bag for my new bike. I was not interested in spending the big bucks that the gas cap/ring type bags cost.
This is a great bag for the money. There is lots of space in this bag without using the zippers to increase capacity. I can fit all of the usual stuff for commuting (keys, wallet, phone, garage door opener, flashlight, hankie, ball cap, bottle of water, shades and probably more).
The straps for securing the bag to the bike are quite configurable too. So, you could probably fit this bag on just about any bike.
I like the map pocket too. Sometimes, I just wanna follow the roads and see where I end up. The maps help me get lost and the GPS gets me back...
All-in-all, just what I would expect from a Nelson Rigg product.
