Wolfman X Strap
Serves a fairly simple role.
The purpose of this strap is to keep the buckles/straps from your Wolfman tank bag from flapping about when the bag is off the tank. It accomplishes this perfectly well, and it also gives you a handy place to put gloves when you're off the bike and you trust no one will steal them.

A must-have for your tank bag
An excellent item which you really need. I have the Rainier tank bag and the X strap does a wonderful job of keeping the straps from flopping around and prevents damage to the buckles or your paint while you ride without the tank bag installed. And it keeps the front straps from falling down in front of your tank where you can't reach them. For just a few bucks the X strap is a must-have.

Good but not great.
This strap is designed to be installed in place of your tank bag when you don't need or want the bag mounted. For that it works great, it keeps the straps tight so they are flapping about and leaves space to get to the fuel cap on most bikes from the looks of it. The buckles are hard plastic and I would not want to use this for any length of time as it will wear and scuff the paint. I would be willing to pay more for covered buckles, or some other system of protecting the paint surface. I gave it a recommend, but caveat that it is not perfect and could use some other features.

Really? 8 bucks?
Personally I think this thing should be included with the bag. I pay a heck of a lot of money for the bag it should come with all the accessories... That being said, this thing is good quality and since it stretches its holds to the tank nicely my only complaint is the lack of a way to hold the excess material down while at speed it tends to flap around.

Should have been included
I love my Wolfman tank bag. I have no complaints about how this strap for keeping the mounting straps down works. My complaint is that I think this should be included with the tank bag upon purchase. That being said, it is relatively cheap and works well.

Simple strap keeper does a good job
Keeps the straps out of the way when the bag is removed. Does what it's suppose to.
