OGIO Super Mini Tanker Tank Bag
Looks good, works good.
I used this on a USA coast to coast trip. The magnets and sticky soft backing kept the bag in place without any kind of marring to the tank's finish. I modified it (cut a small hole for electrical connection) to hold 12 volt/USB power supply to power a GPS, satellite radio and charge the phone. At the end of a day's ride, I just pulled the plug and took the bag with me.
There was extra room for a camera and other stuff. It is small but I wanted small so it would not obscure the GPS mounted in the center of the bars.The only concern was it water proof?. i did go through some rain but nothing inside got wet, the fairing probably kept it dry. Next trip I'll treat it with Scotch Guard for water resistance, just in case.
The picture shows just a little bit of the bag.

This bag seems like a first step into motorcycle waters for Ogio. Weak magnets and slippery material on the underside. I recommend the Joe Rocket Manta bags to this Ogio bag. Back to the drawing board boys.

Belive them when they say it's small
I got this bag for use around town and it does that nicely. That said everyone said it was small and they where right. It fits my phone, sunglasses, gloves, regestaion/insurance card, and garage door opener not much else. Thats find for around town but don't think you can take it on longer than a day trip. I got it for my Sportster and it fits great magnets hold good up to 90.

That's a great mini bag - a solution for day by day
After all the others reviews there no more much to say about this bag. I bought mine here in Brazil - wick explains why they have a very high price. Besides that the bag is great - On the flat front pocket I use to put my phone, house keys, the gate controller, papers, docs and money and small things. The sunglasses pocket is great and even makes me not use my aluminnum vault. Ir does not have space for a pair os tennis and also does not fit my iPad with the leather tough case. Well, anyways, when riding more fast it comes a little closer to me due the wind. It fit perfectly on the Sportster tank. One little thing: the magnetics are VERY strong when out of the little pockets and once I was with them on my hand, didn't pay attention and they hit so strongly that one of then broke in two pieces and other get some little piece off.

OGIO Small Bag
This bag is the perfect size for a pair of sandals, wallet, phone, glasses, and whatever else you keep in your pockets. The bag fits my hard cover bible when riding to church, and does not get in the way. The magnets that attach the bag to the bike hold well and do not scratch the tank.

Good compact tank bag
This tank bag is excellent for my 2012 FZ6R. The magnets are fully capable of remaining in contact even during high crosswind situations and high speeds. The sunglasses pocket is an excellent thought by Ogio. I also like the top pocket for my helmet lock and papers. The main pocket has a clip for keys, and plenty of room for a baseball hat, wallet, headphone case, and some room to spare. Excellent value, and can also be adapted as a rear seat bag using the straps.

Very Slick but...
This tank bag really fits the bill for daily - commuter trips where the usual assembly of odds and ends fit quite nicely and help relieve the need for a back pack. Makes the ride more enjoyable w/o the xtra shoulder weight. The construction is quite solid and the way this little bag is design it punches way above its weight class.
The only thing I couldn't fit is that bwtn bikes, it really requires an all metal tank to lock down, and yes the straps can make this fit into the scheme of things. I didn't want to use the straps on this small tank bag and unfortunately, my K1300S has that center molding down the length of the tank which really interrupts a well thought out design for magnetic attachment.
If I'm gonna use straps then I might as well opt for a bigger bag so the BMW gets the A-Stars Tech Aero and the OGIO lil' big man gets to play on the triple.
All in all...I really like this bag...and you will too if the mag attach suits your tank. My buddy saw it and had to grab one as well!! Can't beat the nice material construction or the functionality.

Good bag... Not the best for F800GS, though..
This is a perfectly sized bag for essentials... I fit wallet, garage door opener, SunPass toll thing, phone, glasses, gloves, kickstand plate, and a bottle of water with a little room to spare... It will not fir a pair of my shoes even when empty, but a jacket liner + above stuff might work... The only downside is that I am a dumba$$ and ordered a magnetic tank bag for a bike that does not have a metal tank in the normal spot. The F800GS has plastic "tank" that has battery and electronics with the actual gas tank under/behind the seat... Anywho, I was able to make it work using straps and clips so that it is quickly removable from my bike... I didn't return it because I really like it and the size is just right....
