Wolfman Rainier Tank Bag
not waterproof at all
I got this thinking it was bigger than the BMW tank bag on my F800GT. not really, but does have a padded bottom which is nice. for this price it should be waterproof. rode 9.3 miles thru a heavy rainstorm (distance from work to home), and there was standing water in the bag. there was even water in the clear top part where I keep my garage door opener. so much that my opener didn't work when I got home. plus, the alignment of the straps really didn't work well with my bike. it is extremely well made tho, and I really wanted to like it, but the marginal fit (probably unique to my bike), and the lack of water protection makes it a bust for me. the BMW bag is back on my bike.

Good quality, but too expensive without accessories.
I shopped around for a GOOD tank bag for my touring V-Strom, and ended up with this one. The slope, make, durability, and flexibility of the bag just fits all of my needs. The zippers are heavy duty, the pulls are strong, the lining is thick, and the rigid sidewalls prevent it from falling left or right when loaded with snacks and other goodies. Overall, the construction of the bag is easily a 5, and this is a very durable product.
That being said, I give it a 4 star review because for the price of the bag, the raincover (an additional $22) should be included. Other farkles for the bag (large top pocket, larger side pockets, etc) are also additional $40 each available from their website. So now a $200 bag that should already be inclusive hones in a little closer to $300 if you want it fully loaded. Other straps for shoulders, or to mount the clips on the tank when the bag is off, are also additional costs that begin to make this cost prohibitive.

Sort of difficult to install but once on the bike it works great.

Good tank bag for BMW 1200 GS Adventure
I thought that this bag would be to large for my GS..but it fits very nicely. Very easy to use while on the road(just used it for a 1300 mile trip to Arizona) and it was easy to re-attach the front straps after re-fueling and you can see all the instruments. The only thing i didn't like about the bag is the pocket closest to you is impossible to open with one-hand because of a stupid flap (It's not water-proof..so what the heck?) and all the other outside pockets don't have this same protective zipper flap. My thoughts are.. make it waterproof and put the zipper flap on all of them or keep the flap off of the most handy pocket.. Jmho!!

I haven't had a chance to ride off road or in the rain yet, but I'm very happy with its performance so far. I can get full range of motion on the handle bars, even with Rox extensions. Like others, I'm surprised they didn't include a rain cover but it's still much less than the BMW bag. I also like the fact that I can manipulate an iPhone or iPad through the plastic cover on top. This is helpful for changing music playlists that the bluetooth is using. No regrets. Pick one up and you won't be disappointed, as long as you want a large bag.

Wolfman has a outstanding product line. This bag has to be one of their best sellers!! The materials and craftsmanship are superior to any other bags I've seen. I put this on my 2015 Triumph Tiger 800 XRX and it fits good, and looks awesome! Plenty of pockets for storage, not sure how they could of made this bag better. The Guys at Wolfman know their stuff!!!

Great Design And Construction
The design, materials and build quality of the Rainier tank bag are outstanding. Double-stitching at stress points, YKK zippers, reflective fabric woven into the side pockets, removable map pocket and a sturdy 4-point mounting system. These features combined with a smart compartment design make this an excellent tank bag for the larger adventure-touring bikes. As great as the bag is, I still have one minor nit-pick. I feel for a bag of its scale it should have come with a larger map pocket. The usable window on the included map pocket is 9" x 8". Please note that a larger MP is available as an accessory. As a bonus, this bag is designed and manufactured in America, good job Wolfman for keeping at home.
