Nelson Rigg CL-2020 GPS Tank Bag
One Trip, REALLY!!!
Guys and gals let me start off by saying I purchased this bag and it got to me quickly and kudos to revzilla for such a great job with customer service. First issue, when i removed it from the packaging I noticed a lot of small threads from the stitching hanging off, I figured no big deal strictly cosmetic. Well the angle of where the GPS is mounted is poor to say the least and it causes one to look down entirely too much as in a unnatural gaze that takes eyes off the road. Then on the first day of my ride on the TAT Mississippi hill country loop the blasted front buckle snaps, we were not even off road yet. So had to make due and tie the strap which made it a pain in fueling up. And lastly, the NON SCRATCHING under belly DOES scratch your paint and fairing. I was highly displeased with this purchase and no I do not recommend it. But with revzilla being as great as they are took the bag back and gave me a full refund. I will be purchasing a higher end bag for a little more money, You get what you pay for. Safe rides to all.

Durable Big Bag - Not Crazy About the Rain Cover
I like how this bag goes on the tank, and how it takes care of its own magnets when you take it off the tank (no clips or flaps or anything to manage: they just get themselves out of the way).
I like its size and that it can expand to accommodate my full-face helmet (or the zilions of things I schlep around regularly).
I wish it had more interior organization. A coin flap and glasses case would be welcome. Still, it's not bad. I also wish it had a velcro-in liner/protector for a hydration bladder. Oh well.
My major complaint is the rain cover: it doesn't fold flat. Seriously, this thing is beefy and huge and elasticized: those are three things I *don't* want in a rain cover.
Despite feeling critical of those things, the reputation and lifetime guarantee of Nelson Rigg make this a worthwhile purchase. And Revzilla got it to me (in Canada!) overnight. Awesome.

Nice bag, plenty of pockets, would have liked a mesh pocket on the inside top flat. Other than that, great. Lots of room. iphone 6splus in an otterbox case is a really tight fit in the bigger window pocket. Would be a perfect fit with a smaller case or no case.

Great, but perhaps outmoded?
I love this bag but the top containers for GPS and phone are not as useful as i hoped. The top unit (for GPS) is still a bit low on my field of vision and would have preferred something that sat further away/infront so I could glance with my eyes, and not by touching my chin to my chest. Also, I'm gonna guess an increasing number of people may use their phones for navigation rather than dedicated units. In which case it'd be great if the design was more appropriate for that. Otherwise the rest of the bag is superb. I may consider a tad bigger side pockets and a net pocket/sleve on the lid that opens up.

Can live out of it!
Love the bag, nice ports for your hydro-pack hose and GPS power cord. The flip up GPS holder work well and you can easily use the touch screen. Does get a little damp inside during a downpour without the cover, but never had one that didn't. Overall I liked the bag enough to get a second. Would recommend to anyone traveling.

Great bag, not so good for phablets
I got this bag in just before a nice weekend trip to NM and the Enchanted Circle. I had plenty of space for extra gloves, all the essential tools and my bag o' jerky. Along with a 2.0L bladder! Magnetic install was a piece of cake and running wires for GPS and bladder was as well! All-in-all, great product! I do have one complaint as it would not fit my LG G3 with the Defender case on it, which turned into a positive since my phone quickly overheated when I got it in the GPS case. Lesson learned. Will definitely be using this every trip I go on!

Large bag. Fits 2L hydro bag easily with plenty of room left over
I purchased this tank bag a couple of weeks ago and I just got back from a 6 day camping trip where I used it extensively. I highly recommend this bag if you are looking for a large multi-day tank bag. Being able to keep 2-3L of water in front of you instead of on your back is essential for distance riding.
I don't rock a GPS so I used the space for one for my hand written directions, and it worked out nice. The phone space is on the smaller side, but one could always use the GPS spot for their phablet.
Over all I feel this is a good value and a great large tank bag.
I ride a 2012 R1200 GSA.
