Wolfman Rainier Tank Bag
nice big tank bag
This tank bag is nice and big- big enough to hold rain gear water bottles, maps, and enough for a day trip or maybe even an overnighter. Pockets are removable if you want something a little smaller for the day. I wish my bike could accommodate a magnetic bag but this works well enough. I am not the tallest rider at 5'7 nor the thinnest (beer gut) and it doesn't get in my way at all. I wish it came with a rain fly and the x-straps but I would still buy it again.

Expensive but worth the money
Great bag, I have it installed in my 09 KLR without the optional KLR strap. I'm sure the special KLR harness is nice but I didn't find it necessary. Bag stayed in place on the trails and I found the large zippers very easy to locate, open, and close.

Well made bag, but...
A very well constructed tank bag. Rather expensive for a strap on tank bag. I have had similar magnetic bags which cost about $80 less. Constructed of heavy weight coated nylon which is water resistant, not waterproof. It leaks around the seams. For the price a rain cover should have been included. The X strap is great but should have been included with the bag as well. The straps on the bag really need an elastic loop to tuck the strap ends into so they do not flail around while riding. I wish the bag was about 1 inch wider so the top map pocket would accommodate a standard sheet of paper. Even though I have a few beefs with the bag, it is very well constructed and over $100 cheaper than the BMW bag. And it is US made.

Great bag... could use some extras for the price
Very good large sized tank bag. No rain fly included at this price - extra. I modified to add power and a drink port to it.

large extra storage as advertised
I bought this tank bag for a road trip I went on with some friends. It was great. It was very functional. The size of it made it so much more useful than the bags everyone else had. It worked perfectly. It's well-built. Other riders in the group were envious at the storage capacity I had with this bag. I would buy it again if I needed another tank bag.

I was hesitant at going with the wolf-man at first, as I really liked my other tank bag, (from another company) but it was very expensive and NOT the most stoutly made, but it did work well... but came unglued, and xx the bed....
So wolfman it is, I am very glad I did, well made, heck for stout,
figuring attachment points at first was a little more work than with the old bag, BUT much more secure once in place.
Piece of mind when doing a suspension test at speed in the outback... Baja...
I have not tested the water proofing yet,(don't know if they say its water proof or not) but it looks and feels that it would take a pretty good dumping for moisture to make its way inside.
I did not give it 5 stars across the board, only cause I am picky,
but when this one gets stolen,( don't think I'll wear it out) I will go with the wolf again...

Last year I bought a klr to travel in the US. After a mechanic incinerated my right saddlebag on the exhaust, I got Wolfman soft panniers. Great stuff at a very fair price.
I haven't really put that thing to the test yet but the tank bag looks and feels great. Excellent design, lots of good ideas and, as far as I can tell, excellent value (this bag will replace a worn out Touratech one that costs more that 300 USD and is not as nice - though to be fair it did last 10 years).
I'll tll you how it's holding on after the TAT this summer .
+ it's made in the US.

A bag for the long haul
I wanted a rock solid, durable bag for my 13' ABS Adventure V-Strom and this one is it. Took less than five minutes to install by looping the straps on. The bag stays firmly on the tank and does not scratch the finish. The interior is roomy and the 4 hook and loop pockets on the outside allow me to customize the capacity of the bag. I'm leaving them all on since the more room the better as far as I'm concerned. I really like the detachable map window. While I haven't dropped my bike with the bag on (that will come this summer I'm sure on an off-road ride) I know it will be on when I pick the bike back up. Great bag!
