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...

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!

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.

Have a functionality, fit, or otherwise product-specific question about the Dowco Fastrax Sport / Adventure Tank Bag? Ask it here!
If you have a customer service or shipping question, please direct it to our Customer Service department.
A shopper asked: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.Mar 1, 2014
Vishnu H: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.Apr 5, 2014
Vishnu H:Hey, please ignore my last response- I just realized you were asking about a bag I don't own, but was assuming the question was directed to me because of a different bag I purchased. My bad- sorry!Apr 5, 2014
A shopper asked: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?Mar 13, 2013
RevZilla: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.Mar 15, 2013
A shopper asked: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.Dec 17, 2012
RevZilla: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.Dec 18, 2012
Vishnu H: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.Apr 5, 2014
Vishnu H:Hey, please ignore my last response- I just realized you were asking about a bag I don't own, but was assuming the question was directed to me because of a different bag I purchased. My bad- sorry! I need to pay more attention to the details.Apr 5, 2014
