Nelson Rigg CL-1035 Touring Tank Bag
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.

This product has great features
I am planning an Alps ride through Italy later this year, and needed a larger tank bag to carry all my contraband from Amsterdam. I found the Nelson Rigg CL-1035 Touring Tank Bag on RevZilla and gave it a try. It looked much larger than my current Icon bag, good for rides to work and back, but not too large to disturb my riding. After watching several videos on RevZilla on the proper way to measure the crotch region for riding pants, I decided to order the tank bag. Not that crotch measuring is related to tank bags, but I just like to get my blood flowing before I make a big purchase. To my surprise, this Nelson Rigg CL-1035 Touring Tank Bag is very affordable, and gets 5 gold stars and 3 purple horseshoes for affordability. Revzilla had a box delivered lickety split at no added cost, so that made me very happy. Happy enough to rewatch Anthony Bucci tell me how to get the correct pant size.
When I got home, I placed the Nelson Rigg CL-1035 Touring Tank Bag on my bike and it fit like a charm. Don't get me wrong, this bag is a beast and very large...but bigger is better, amirite ladies?! It is expandable, I can fit my helmet inside of it, the magnets are strong and keep the bag firmly adhered to my tank, and I can fill my Nelson Rigg CL-1035 Touring Tank Bag full of great odds and ends. So far, I have placed a liter of soda, 2 balls of yarn, 3 decks of Magic the Gathering cards (1 deck includes my rare, mint black lotus), a bag of trail mix, my Stretch Armstrong action figure, and a bottle of Ritalin, and there is so much extra room for more!
All in all, I am one satisfied customer.

Good Bag with Great Capacity and Price
Got the magnetic version for my Tiger 800 and it holds onto the tank very well, but at the same time doesn't require lots of force to remove for say fuel stops. Good materials and construction (e.g. the zippers work very smoothly), looks like it will last for quite some time. The bag has a nice rectangular shape to it which allows it to hold a ton of gear. On a recent trip, I had the following inside it: extra pair of gloves, crew neck shirt, maps, GPS, EZPass, microfiber towel, rain cover, 20oz water bottle, point-and-shoot camera, sunglass case, gum, pen, and still had room left over. This was also in the unexpanded state - could hold even more if expanded. The bag was even a bit heavy when carrying away from the bike (e.g. going to restaurant) with all this gear inside. The top portion has a slight curve to it. Only major gripe really is that the map pocket cannot fit a 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper without folding the paper. I like to print maps occasionally and it would have made it easier to fit, if it was a bit larger (or of a standard size). Rode in some light rain and the rain cover kept things dry. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a large capacity magnetic tank bag.
