Firstgear Onyx Expandable Magnetic Tank Bag
just what I needed
works well not too big or small. A little heavy to carry around with me but that's ok

Nice big bag with a fairly small footfrint
This bag is great. Just rode with it from Tennessee to Maine and back. Didn't expand it until halfway on the trip and it was great to have the room for gloves, rain pants, etc. The map holder works fine if you unzip the lid first. Otherwise, it's hard to get a map in or out past the glasses compartment.

More than enough room
I was looking for a bag that would be big enough to take my normal riding 'must haves' as well as have room for the little things that come along on different rides. Keep in mind, this is a fairly big bag, even more so when expanded.
Bag fits everything that I need no problem, sits nice on the bike and stays where the magnets are placed. Tabs on the zippers are nice and big and easy to access even with riding gloves on.
Its nice to have the bottom unzip off, providing back pack straps if you need to carry it any distance.
Only complaint I have is that it doesn't appear to be 100% waterproof but they have provided a water proof cover that can be put on easily. I have folded it up small enough to fit it in the sunglass case. I haven't hit any hard downpours yet, but it has held up with light drizzle just fine without the waterproof cover on.

great tank bag!
I was looking for a small tank bag, this is not what I consider small but I liked the fact that it didn't have side storage compartment. This bag is very roomy and for a daily commuter like myself, it's just perfect. It also fit well on my 04 gsx-r 750 tank. The description of this item is spot on.

Great Bag...tough on maps
I recently used this bag on a trip to Big Bend NP and it worked great helping me store a lot more gear. It carried my SLR camera and 32oz water bottle with other misc. items with ease in the non-expandle position. My only complaint is the sunglasses case gets in the way of installing my maps and makes it a little difficult. I think if the zipper for the map case was on the side instead of the aft position, it would be much easier and possibly prevent tearing of maps. Overall though, great bag and looked good as well on my black FJR.

I wanted a big bag, and I got one.
I was looking for a large tank bag, and this one is certainly large. It's also very well made and I expect it to last a good long time. The map pocket is just large enough for my ipad, though I'm not sure I'll ever use it that way. The inside will take my gym gear including shoes, lunch, and my tablet. I couldn't ask for more.

Nice big bag!
This is a great value for a surprisingly expandable tank bag. I ordered it as a gift for my dad's Shadow 750, and we were amazed how tall it expands. Should be plenty of room for an overnight weekend riding excursion this spring!
