Wolfman Rainier Tank Bag
Wolfman Howls at the Moon and the Road
Never used a tank bag but when it was decided to put my girl on the back and ride from Portland, OR to Los Angeles, CA we didn't have enough room in the sidebags and backbox for all our gear. This came bag came in extremely handy. Used it as a carryon on the plane and was able to fit loads into it. The straps kept it on properly and liked the fact that my iPad fit into the map case compartment perfectly. Even responded to touches through the plastic. They just need to take this concept further by making it weather-resistant since more uses are coming in daily for having a large screen. Not just maps. Weather data, GPS, etc.
Material is durable. Only cheap thing I encountered was little yellow nylon lines attached to the zipper break off. Problem solved by replacing with a zip tie. Manufacturer please take note.

Great bag, affordable price!
I bought this bag for my triumph tiger explorer 1200. I loved the price and features. My main concern was that the bag would be too big (high) and might block the instruments, but that is not the case at all. The bag is proportioned just right and it does not interfere with my controls or vision in any way.
The install was very easy and done within 10 minutes. The straps and bottom lining (where it contacts the bike) are totally scratch-free, and the bag has not moved a mm since I installed it.
The bag is the perfect size for day-trip items (sunglasses, hat, wallet, extra top/layer for warmth, etc). All compartments are easy to access and items fit well. There are seveal pockets on the outside of the bag that initially, I didn't think I'd use, but I have them filled with small items, (extra ear plugs/headphones, lens cleaner, etc).
The bag is not waterproof and I didn't buy the bag cover, as I usually don't ride in a downpour. For those occasions where I do get caught in the rain, I sprayed waterproofing onto the bag, and that has worked well for me.
Overall this is a great bag and an great proce, I would highly recommend this bag and I will buy Wolfman products again.

I was not happy about the price of the bag as I have a moto centric bag for my super hawk that I love and it was around $80.00 (and came with a rain cover) but everything for adventure touring is higher for some reason. I bought the bag for my R1200gs to take to Roll The Bones IV rally in North Central Texas. I didn't get the rain cover as I incorrectly assumed it came with the tank bag as every other tank bag I have came with a rain cover. After three days of testing the product at the rally I am pleased with the bag. It offers a huge amount of storage space and is well thought out. I encountered light rain but not enough to get through the outer shell. After using this product, my only complaint is that it could be a bit cheaper or at least they should include the rain cover with the bag. In closing, it is a great product which is well designed and well built. Given the price of the majority of other tank bags like those made by touratech, GL, SW Motech, BMW, etc... this bag is priced pretty low but I believe that as more folks get into adventure touring / dual sporting in the U.S. there will be room for possibly another manufacturer to produce even more value minded products in this category or at least I hope for that.

Fit on my 2013 Multistrada barely. Any larger and the bag would be too far back off the tank. A little inconvenient to get the front clips off since the bag is far forward. No interference with the handle bars though.
I wish it had a base that stayed on the tank for when riding without the tank bag. I'll have top get the x strap for that now. The map pocket and the other 3 detachable bags a held secure. I had no fears they would fall off. Zippers are very nice, 2 way with little cloth pulls to help.
The top won't open all the way, it bends about 80% back. So nothing rigid on the top that would stop that bend.
I like it. Now I need to accessorize it.

Great overall bag
The only criticism I have about the bag is that it would have been nice if it was waterproof itself, and not require a rain cover.Every other aspect about the bag is excellent, fit, finish and size, all what I expected and more. Very please with the purchase.

Great tank bag
I can't say anything negative about this bag. It's got loads of room and the space is divided up nicely. It's a large bag but it causes no interference on my KLR. The universal mounting works well and the bag is easily moved out of the way for refueling. This was a very worthwhile purchase for me.

As tank bags go, this one is very good.
Compared to alternatives, this is a very good tank bag.
I have had many tank bags on many bikes. Without considering price, this is an EXCELLENT tank bag.
Large tank bags for bikes without steel tanks (magnets) are expensive. This tank bag has a multitude of nice features for the price. It is a specialty item, for a small number of motorcycle models, so the economy of scale must be low.
This bag has a good design, it could be better, but for large tankbags that fit my bike, there isn't much to choose from.
