Wolfman Blackhawk Tank Bag
Works well on a BMW F800GS
Just got the bag before a 2500 mile ride. Wasn't sure between this bag and the next size bigger but I didn't want any interference while riding off road and needed some thing small enough to take off carry around if needed. Perfect for some tools, wallet, cell phone, microfibers, etc. Had way more room than I needed and never once did it get in the way while standing. Really like the zippers and the material on the bottom that keeps it from sliding. Never moved at all and don't have to worry about messing up the bike's finish. Super easy to install and adjustable. Really like the quality of Wolfman over a Cortech I had on another bike. Thanks for a great product.

Great lower profile tank bag. Built to last - Made in USA
I wanted a smaller tank bag for my 2014 BMW F700 GS. This bag fits perfectly - nice and secure. The bag has some foam sides to keep it's shape but is not completely rigid which I like. Has a good sized main compartment and zipper pouch inside. I road 200 miles in some pretty hard rain and it barely got wet inside. They sell it as water resistant but it did a great job keeping water out. I did purchase the optional rain cover for future rides just to be safe. I hooked up the mounting straps in a way where I can leave them on the bike all the time which is nice.

Perfect fit for my bike
The size is perfect for my needs the quality is second to none. It installs easily. It fits my bike like it was made for it. Most tank bags I have tried interfered with the bars at full lock this one does not so when I am doing a tight turn my horn doesn't honk anymore. Tha bag comes with everything you need to mount it.

Since I'm short (vertically challenged), I didn't want a bag that would be in my way. This bag fits the bill and is large enough to hold all my junk. Detaches easy so it looks like I am carry a camera bag or a shaving kit. Works well for me.

Size is perfect for my DR650. Well made! Moved up size of bikes, so I moved up from Wolfman Enduro to Wolfman Blackhawk.

This is a great smaller sized bag.
The underside of it is some of the softest material you can find and you can trust it will not harm your motorcycle finish. it is also very grippy as it is a rubberized material, hence guaranteeing stability and no rubbing motion. I have it on a 2014 Moto Guzzi Stelvio NTX and it fits great in size and slope adjust-ability. On the downside it is a simple soft bag (the mentioned soft rigidity is only on the perimeter of the bag) and as such the more you put in it the more cluttered your stuff is to find. I am going to remedy this with some simple foam dividers (the type you find in camera bags) velcroed together for adjustability as I see fit. This is the only reason I kept a star out of performance. I did have in there a full size digital SLR camera, sunglasses, wallet, keys, battery chargers, USB cables, helmet visor cloth cleaner, and everything fit well with room to spare. I just took it on an over 2200 miles trip through Washington, Oregon, California and Nevada in mostly dry conditions and it performed very well even when we ran into rain and hail (though not waterproof it is resistant enough to keep the interior dry for short periods of exposure to rain). Pockets are as described and zippers work very smoothly. It would be nice to have a waterproof cover for it, but again a little ingenuity can quickly remedy this. The bungee strap on top is extremely useful for temporarily securing your gloves while not riding. The key-ring inside is also a nice touch for ease of securing your mc or house keys or remote control for garage door openers. As mentioned by the manufacturer the Blackhawk utilizes the same 4-point harness as used on the Explorer Lite, Rainier, and Large Expedition Tank bags, making switching out bags a snap. This is a deal maker for me.

Perfect size for the essentials
This tank bag fits great on my 650GS and is just the right size for all of my essentials for quick trips. It will come in handy on longer rides for those things I need quick access to.
I like it so much that I'm planning to get a set of Wolfman soft saddlebags.

Not too small, not too big!
I really like this tank bag for my R1200GSA. The stock BMW tank bag was too big and got in the way when I am standing and leaning forward. This bag does not hamper your performance in any way.
The only complaint I have about the bag is that it is not waterproof and the waterproofing bag does not come with it. I rode through a down poor and the bag got soaked. Must say that the contents did not get soaked though...
Big enough to carry my phone, hat, wallet and small snacks easily. Probably could carry a little bit more but I hate overstuffing my tank bag.
It is well built. We'll see in due time, how well the zipper as well as the material holds up under use.
I would highly recommend the bag if you're looking for a bag that is not too big, not too small!
