Wolfman Blackhawk Tank Bag
A great tank bag.
I use this on my Yamaha Super Tenere; it fits great and is well designed. I like the overall quality of materials. The non slip material on the mounting surface prevents the bag from sliding around on the tank. A great mid sized tank bag.

Great bag for the T800
The Blackhawk fits the sloped profile of the Tiger 800 well, but for where I sit it is a bit too far back. I added the Seat Concepts Tall seat to my bike and the increase in height puts the Blackhawk under my nose and I have to rotate my head way down to see the bag. I don't use the map case anyway, but I do put my ID in the back pocket and I have to lay eyes on it so as not to drop it after I go through the gate at work. It is deceptively big. Holds more than I need. The only thing I would request for future upgrades is maybe the ability to compartmentalize somehow. My phone always ends up with something hard (can, tire gauge, etc... bouncing around on the screen. Great product. My only other gripe is the rain cover is chintzy and costs WAY more than it should

Just what I was looking for.
I got this just before a 1,000 mile trip through Oregon. I wanted something not too bulky, but "big enough". At first I was disappointed that the transparent map pocket doesn't hold a folded map, then realized I don't look at maps while riding anyway, so this is a non-issue. I used it on a rugged 6-hour off-road tour over ATV trails, also, and it was great - doesn't get in the way whether you are standing on the pegs or sitting.

My 11 year old tank bag was badly weathered. The handle bar switches hit the bag every time you turned the handlebars.
Thus the search was on for a better tank bag.
Wolfman, Blackhawk. Holds every thing I need. Mounted on my 04 Honda ST1300 pretty easy. Just used the map case for the first X. nice. Really like the hold down strap for riding gloves. The strap on rear of bag is were I will place my dual temp controller.
I did order the rain cover. Did not test that YET.
Oh, MADE in the USA.

Great smaller size bag for my KTM 690
I bought this bag to replace my large Wolfman Rainier which impeded my standing position when on the KTM 690. It was fine (still large) on my VStrom. I tried several different bags from Revzilla (great return policy) and opted for this as the best size and shape. I fashioned a padded camera (M43) section with protection from a camera bag. This bag holds phone, snacks, camera + larger lens, energy drink, leatherman tool, phone, wallet, spare gloves, map (paper), and still provides a lot of room for an aggressive standing position. One of the real sellers for me was the fact that it uses the same standard attachment harness as my rainier so I can trade off depending on the room (storage and riding) that I'll need. Wrestling with that now for my COBDR trip. All in all a great purchase, happy with Wolfman quality (3 bags now) and of course Revzilla's purchase-return policy.

Perfect size for the KLR, very high quality construction.
I had always wanted a tank bag but passed on several because they were either too big or too small, the Blackhawk is the perfect size. I can fit my wallet, phone, camera, a full size Nalgene bottle, sunglasses, a few maps and an extra pair of gloves in it and still have a little room left over.
The bag is of quality construction and you can tell that Wolfman put some serious thought into its design. Installation is easy, about 10 minutes to include reading the instructions. The universal mount that comes with the bag works on the KLR but I wish I would have known that there was a KLR specific front mount available when I ordered.

Great product made in the USA
Installed on a R1200GSW. The tankbag fits the slope of the tank fine. I do not like big tall tankbags and the Blackhawk was exactly what I was looking for. I really like the elastic strap across the map pocket, you can stash you gloves there during a stop. Highly recommended.

Great bag even for a small bike.
Great bag! I was worried a bought too big of a bag for my smaller bike but it worked great. Quality seems great. clear pocket on the top is detachable. the elastic band that runs across the top held my nalgene and hat in place perfectly. Bag works great on even small bikes
