Loved this!
I bought this right before a 1500+ mile trip and it carried all my important documents, water, big can of chain lube, toiletries, cell phone, ezpass, and even provided a nice stomach pillow for when I leaned over on the highway... Couldn't ask for anything more from this...

Great Pack
I have been using this pack for about three weeks now and is has been great. The magnets grab onto my tank very well with no shifting around. It is not the biggest bag, but for a tank bag it is large enough. I also like the integrated waterproof liner that has it's own zippered section up front. I always hated having to hold the liner in my bag, it always got in the way.

One Tank Bag to Rule Them All!
I'll be honest, I didn't shop around when I started looking for a tank bag; I simply picked the first bag that seemed to fit my general needs and boy did I end up with a winner!

This bag is incredibly well-designed and every feature has a practical benefit. Take for example the simplicity of the detachable buckle keyring: simply add it to your keyring and buckle your keys in to the bag when you ride.

Rain is never ideal weather to ride in, but the contents of this bag will stay dry with waterproof zippers during light rain and the sewn-in rain hood for heavier rainfall. The fact that the rain hood is sewn-in gives great peace-of-mind knowing that it won't fly away while you're riding!

There's even a backpack shoulder strap that's neatly tucked away. Just take the bag off the bike, pull out the shoulder strap and you've got a free hand! Alternatively the heavy-duty handle is always available for easy carrying.

A surprise benefit is the transparent plastic window on top of the bag that enables you to use a touch capacitive device such as a smartphone. This is great for navigation apps and the pouch also offers headphone ports if you want to listen to some tunes while riding.

The color inserts for the exterior wells seemed a little gimmicky, but I actually appreciate the fact that the bag's highlights match my bike!

This quite possibly may the one tank bag to rule them all!

Expensive, but solid.
My main reason for purchasing this bag was simple: a device window large enough for a modern smart phone. But the other features, combined with the really solid construction, make it worthwhile. The compartment area is very large (and expandable). The window is touch-friendly (though not especially swipe-friendly). The flap has inner storage. There is a permanently-attached rain guard stored at the front, which is nice. The magnets are very strong, and a security cable is included. Complaints? The side color panels are a bit gimmicky, and again the price. But you're buying a high quality product here.

Great Product!
I am currently using this tank bag on my 2006 Suzuki GSXR600 for a daily commute to and from work (roughly 40 miles round trip, travelling at 80-90 miles/hour on the Highway). I have been using it with the magnets and haven’t ran in to any problems as of yet despite the half plastic/half metal tanks on the 2006-2007 Gixxers. The bag is big enough to comfortably fit a pair of shoes, extra shirt, lunch and a 40oz stainless steel water bottle. It has a pouch on the front of the bag with a plastic cover for maps, GSP, cell phone, MP3 player etc. Touch devices are fully operational through the plastic. The bag also expands so you can fit more stuff than listed above. The quality of the bag looks and feels sturdy and seems like it will last a while. The bag also comes with a life-time warranty through Dawco . For anyone looking for a compact bag without having a lot of bulk, this bag is a great option! Thank you Revzilla for the prompt delivery and great customer service!!

Best reviews for a sport bike. Looks like it isn't too big and should work well on my bike.

All the features you'd expect, but the cell phone window looks big enough to fit later model phones.

Size, features, magnetic

Needed a bigger tank back for my upcoming cross-country trip. Like that this has so much versatility and a built in rain cover.
Christopher F on Apr 20, 2014
My son liked it because it is compact and functional. He can also use his navigator when he is riding.

it use magnets or it use straps? because my bike (ktm 990 super duke) has a plastic tank. if it use magnets which one would be the best for my bike?
A shopper on Nov 2, 2013
BEST ANSWER: It actually has both the option of using just the magnets for easy install/removal, or both magnets & straps should you want added security...or have a plastic tank.
I have a BMW F700 GS - would this work for that? Also, I'm 5'2" so I'm worried about tank bags that would be come up high on me. Would you be concerned about this?
A shopper on Apr 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It should work fine on the bike. Its magnetic and sticks pretty well. It also comes with straps. I have it on a hayabusa right now. I am 5'11" and its ok for me. The bag was a bit smaller than i would have hoped for but it is extendable and gets a bit taller. If you are 5'2" it may come below your head depending on where you head is compared to the wind screen and how you sit when you ride. Hope this helps.
The description says this bag has built-in security cable. Is the cable meant to wrap around the tank, around the triple clamp, or where? Seems like a good idea, but as it is not shown in the pictures, I would like to know more about this feature.
A shopper on Mar 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hmmm... I'm guessing they're referring to a tab with a D-Ring located on the part of the bag closest to the triple clamp, which you can use to add a security strap of your own, but it doesn't come with a strap. I've used a length of webbing with velcro at the ends to wrap around the triple clamp just in case the magnets let go- this hasn't happened yet, but is a good precaution to take.
I love the features that the Fastrax bags have, I tried the tailbag but it is too big for my bike. (BMW F800ST) Since the tank bag is somewhat smaller would it be possible to use it as a tail bag on my luggage rack using it's existing strap attachments?
A shopper on Mar 13, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Dowco does not recommend that you use this tank bag as a tail bag. Doing so, might result in involuntary bowel movements when you see all your personal items being crushed by the cars behind you.
Which bag has more space inside: this bag or the First Gear Manza tank bag? I like this bag a little better because I have a large phone (galaxy Note II) and this bag's accesory pocket appears like it would fit the phone for GPS. The Manza bag appears to have more space though. Also, do you carry the hydration bladder for this bag? Thx.
A shopper on Dec 17, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The capacity of the Dowco Fastrax Sport / Adventure Tank Bag is 798 cubic inches and 1330 cubic inches when expanded whereas the Firstgear Monza Tank Bag / Backpack has a 1680 Cubic Inch capacity. We do not carry the hydration bladder from Dowco but understand that most generic 1-liter bladders should fit.
Does this bag have shoulder straps or just one strap to be cross-slung?
Steve B on Mar 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Mine came with just one strap, allowing the bag to be slung over the shoulder. Because of how it's set-up, it wouldn't be difficult to improvise a set of straps to wear it like a back pack- there are two D-Rings at one end (the "top"), one at each corner, and another D-Ring at the other end (the "bottom") in the center. Your question has actually inspired me to try it that way.
