Wolfman Rainier Tank Bag
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!

Tank Bag for my GS1200 Adventure
The Wolfman Rainier Tank bag fit my 2013 BMW GS1200 Adventure (Oil Cooled) 90th Anniversary perfectly using the universal mounting straps. It looks great, fits great and much better price than BMW, Touratech or Wunderlich. As usual Revzilla ROCKS!!!

Rain cover would be nice
Great bag and all, I was looking for made in USA. But for that price, how could they have the nerve to charge another $30 for a rain cover? Everything I needed to make my own cover cost $5 from a local fabric shop!

Very nice bag for the buck.
I've been looking at the Rainier tank bag for awhile now, and finally decided to purchase one for my F800GS. Install was a breeze and fits great on the bike. (Does NOT cover up the ignition or power point.# There is a TON of room in this bag, plenty for a day trip by itself. It is well constructed and should last for years. It is not waterproof so be sure to get fly as well. Also I recommend getting an X strap for it too, that way it'll keep the straps from flapping when the tank bag is not used. If I could add anything to this bag it would be the addition of some pen holders inside the bag. Final note... It is a BIG bag much larger than I was expecting and with the edition of the envelope wing bags #love the way they Velcro down to keep them from flopping) on the sides and front there is plenty of ways to loose items you put in the bag. If you're looking for an affordable well built tank bag I'd recommend you take a look at this one. I really, really like mine.

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.
