Rapid Transit Commuter Tank / Tail Bag 4.8 5 6 6
Tank bag... I purchased this bag because I it had great reviews and the price was right. What I found was the bag to be a little larger than expected. I had hoped it would fit a couple of my different bikes but find it too big for my dual sport but seems to work well with the larger flat topped tanks. I find it hard to rate durability since I've only had the bag for a week or so but it appears to be durable. July 21, 2014
Great size, relatively easy install It took me a while to install this on my VRod but once I figured out the best place to run the straps it worked out really well. Spacious and functional. I would recommend this tank bag. July 14, 2014
Excellent. I've used this bag for a few thousand miles and haven't had any complaints. It's about the same price as the Recon bag but is much larger. It stores a great deal of stuff without any issues. I found that when you fill up it is easiest to unclip the rear straps and one side of the front strap that goes around the head tube, then you can rotate the bag up onto the handlebars during refueling.

Great bag. I have nothing bad to say about this bag. For my large tanked bike the fit is excellent. I had to use the straps and clips as my tank is non-metal. I just rode cross country and it held all the things like camera, phone, binoculars, writing pads, pens, sunscreen, etc. etc, etc, that I needed to get at on the quick. The map window size was ideal plus I was able to slip my GPS into that same window when I needed it. The rain cover feature was used more than once and it kept the contents dry during the storms along the way. All around I give it an A+. September 16, 2013
Perfect tank bag This is the perfect tank bag for me. I am a new rider and was uncomfortable with the idea of a large tank bag. So far I have been able to get everything I want in this bag with no problem. August 12, 2013
Great Bag This bag works great for me. Plenty of size, but not too big. I ride a z1000 and it does not interfere with steering or controls. I can see it slightly interfering on a supersport that sits fairly low. I work out after work and I can fit a towel and change of clothes into the bag without unzipping the expansion. Has pockets inside for papers, cards, all kinds of stuff as well as the small outside pocket where i put my phone. As long as you can find a good place to mount the straps I definitely recommend getting this tank bag. June 12, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Darren T: Bought this for my son for our trip to Washington in a couple weeks. We liked the capability of switching back and forth from the tank to the tail section. Price is right and reviews were great. May 26, 2015
Dennis F: Probably because of size, reviews and strap mount. I'm anxious to receive the bag and use it on an upcoming trip. Jun 29, 2014
Mohamed H: I needed a tank bag that used a strap mounting system as I have an aluminum tank. After reading all the reviews I felt this was a better choice, given that it had a cable access port that is important for me as I want to "hide" the cable for my smartphone. Apr 15, 2014
Barry G: Price. Mar 23, 2014
Steve W: Rapid Transit Recon Sport bag was too small. Feb 19, 2014
Sam D asked: Can anyone confirm this comes with 1. strap mounting kit as a default and 2. whether it comes with a backpack conversion kit?
What are the backpack straps like - are they wide and well padded or just token straps which "allows" the bag to be used as a backpack but not really practical to carry reasonable distance?

Timothy W: Comes with two mounting straps one that loops and connects to the front two connectors and another that connects to the back two connectors. The straps have minimal padding, nothing super comfortable but not just a strap either. It's been a while since I used this bag, bought a rapid transit recon 19 and have loved every minute of it. Thick padded backpack straps and I like tha magnets better then straps. Oct 17, 2014

Mount B: Yes, it does come with one mounting kit and one strap for "backpack" conversion. However, it's more of a shoulder strap with a pad.
That said, I've never used it. The bag has an integrated handle crossing the front pocket for holding one's phone and that's what I use when I remove the bag from my bike.
Overall, I'm very happy with the bag. Lots and lots of space and well designed and built.

Samuel M: 1- yes, it comes with straps. (Two)

2- it's one strap not two. Think satchel, not backpack. The strap is pretty comfortable, and clips into the d rings on either side.

G Aldo A: It comes with the mounting straps, but no backpack conversion. It sits pretty tall on the tank, so I mounted it in the tail. Oct 17, 2014

Robert A: Mine did not come with backpack straps. I imagine you could buy generic back pack straps. I might look into that myself. Oct 17, 2014

Sara L asked: I'm trying to find a 15-ish liter strap-mount tank bag for my Ducati Monster 796 ... I'd like to find one that has a tank protector that attaches by strap to the bike (that stays on the bike) and then a bag that snaps in by strap to the tank protector (so that it's quick and easy to attach the bag to the straps on the bike). It sounds like this one is set up that way -- can anyone confirm? Quick and easy to attach and detatch, and effective tank protection?

Thank you!

Larry B: The bag has a built-in tank protector on the bottom of the bag; not a separate pad that stays on the bike. However, it's still pretty easy to take bag on/off just by unclipping, and the straps with hold down clips stay on the bike all the time. Just 4 clips and you're good to go.Good bag, good value.

Robert A: I'm very happy with the bag. The tank protecter is built in and does not detach from the bag. I have used the bag for 1000's of miles and it has made no marks on my tank. May 8, 2015

david c asked: How well does the backpack conversion feature work - is it useable as a backpack off the bike and then can be quickly strapped on as a tail bag? Apr 25, 2014

Robert A: David,
I had no idea there was a back pack conversion kit. I'll have to check that out. My guess is that it would work well. Other than that I like the bag a lot. My one wish is that it had some type of divider in the main compartment so all my odds and ends would not be all jumbled together. I'm working on rigging up a divider for it myself.

Sam D: I sent an email to Rapid Transit and they told me that parts for backpack conversion come with the bag.
From Robert's response, I'm guessing this is not the case?
