Wolfman Rainier Tank Bag
Astonishing Product !
I have an F700GS and man nothing on the net worked...this tank bag will attach to any bike (with the universal mount).
The bag has plenty of space and external additional bags (3)...the only drawback, is not waterproof....but for the shape, size and quality...I don't mind having to buy the extra rain cover.

Love this bag
I love this bag. I was concerned about a tank bag because of filling up with gas, ease of removal, and not sure of bulkiness when riding but all of these are not a problem. Very quick disconnect to get gas and not bulky at all while riding. Actually serves as a good rest on longer hauls when partially filled. Fit perfectly on KLR. One self-induced problem though. I layed the bike down and gas from the gas cap leaked. A real problem getting rid of the smell and still smells a little.

Perfect Bag for a GS
With the crazy sloping tank on my GS I was having trouble finding a tank bag that fit. Saw this bag on a V-Strom (another sloping tank bike) and it looked nice and snug so I thought I'd give it a try. Works perfect! Not to big, not to small. No problem with it getting in the way of the bars on tight turns. Plenty of well thought out storage. Very well made. Looks like it will out-last other tanks bags I've had. Since the bag is not water proof, spend the extra few bucks and get the rain cover.
I don't know how Revzilla does it, but I ordered the bag online and it was at my door 17 hours later. You can't beat that!

The Rainier turned out to be exactly what I was looking for. I was unable to see the bags in person to make a choice on which to go with. Based on the description etc I went with the Rainier. I had peace of mind knowing that Revzilla offers free returns and shipping. Items over $39.99 were eligible for free shipping. Its a win-win situation.
The bag has just the right amount of pockets for customizing your gear/accessory placement. Very easy to remove. My biggest question in looking at tank bags was what to do when fueling up. Rest assured this is as simple as it gets. I was looking at bags with the hard mount quick detach. After using the Rainier I am now thinking this is even more convenient given two straps remain attached which keeps the bag secure from falling off.
I rated durability as Excellent even though the bag is new. This is based on other reports as well as a visual inspection of the build quality.
I HIGHLY recommend picking up the Wolfman X-strap. This is used when the bag is not being used. The X-strap snaps onto the bag mounting straps that remain on the bike when the bag is removed. The X-Strap is used at times when not using the bag so the mounting straps are not flapping in the glorious riding breeze......
I am using this bag on a GS ADV. Perfect fit. Not too high or obtrusive.

Roomy, expandable, multiple removable pockets including map pocket, easy on/off, well constructed
Bag was recommended by one of the gals at Philly store. I just used this tank bag in the four corners area of Arizona last week. My first tank bag. I put it on a Triumph Tiger 800 XC. It held my maps, Spot Satellite tracker, Phone, GPS, first aid kit, snacks, leatherman, and SLR with large telephoto lens attached. There was still room to spare. I forgot the rain cover on one 300 mile ride and got caught in rain and wet snow for several hours. Everything in the bag stayed dry, including my camera!!! The bag is well constructed, easy to mount, has a very roomy and expandable main compartment, removable map compartment on top and three smaller moveable/removable pockets attached with velcro on the outside to segregate and store your items.

Great and easy to install
I got this bag as my primary carrying device on my bike for short, in town errands. I absolutely love this bag. Its fairly large but that is why i got it. It was easy to install.

Very Well Conceived and Implimented
This bag served perfectly on my klr for years and is now doing double-duty on a super tenere. It has seen four seasons on both without failure. The strapping system is sure footed and reliable, albeit a minor inconvenience when fueling. The pockets and multiple storage compartments are well placed, generous and easily accessible. Zippers are excellent. This bag is very durable and when washed (hosed) it appears as new... Although I do treat all my plastics and textiles with 303 aerospace protectant so fading and sun damage are never an issue. The map compartment (velro-sealed), although not waterproof allows for a good sized fold-out. There's a fair amount of 3M trim reflectivity while not appearing ridiculously ornate. The rain cover does it's job without failure.
Wolfman is simply one of those great brands that delivers solidly on your investment without complicating the issue with needless features. Quality and durability have been a common theme among this and other Wolfman products I use.
