Icon Primer Tank Bag
Great bag to carry small items
Perfect size for lunch bag. I use this bag to carry lunch to work. Large enough for a couple of sodas and sandwiches. Even room for snacks. Great bag, small price.

Great everyday bag with lots of features
I was looking for a small bag to carry those items which I didn't want to leave on the bike and didn't necessarily have room for on my person. This bag does that. Small, compact, with internal & external pockets, even a place to secure an odd-sized item. There's a handy carry handle as well as a functional 3-point shoulder strap that quickly turns the bag into a mini backpack. There are 4 pockets for magnets & a suitable tank protector plus D rings if you want to add additional straps to secure the bag. This isn't a weekend or touring bag but suits my needs ideally.

'mini' tank bag
ok so I knew it wouldnt be as big as the icon urban tank bag but I didnt think it would be this small. This bag will fit into my school back pack. yeah, its that small. Dont expect to carry alot with this. its good for say hmmm like a change of clothes ( shirt and underwear ) jeans maybe. definitely not fitting shoes in there. good for running to the store to grab candy for the movies or if your going to gamestop and want just enough room for a few games and a controller. 'small errands" You definitely wont be using it to carry loads of stuff. I was hoping this would replace the use of my back pack but oh well. Its still a goof bag. very strong magnets, good zippers and appears to be water resistant. it does come with straps to use as a backpack but i wouldnt cause youd look stupid cause its so small. So for $50....you should be getting something just a little bit bigger. Something more useful than say a magnetic fanny pack, which this thing basically is

Ease of use
I use this bag with my ninja300, commute to work. Able to fit my phone, wallet, car keys, stethoscope, xtra shirt, snacks, my slr camera etc. It's easy to attached/detached - the magnet is strong, kept it in placed. It's stylish and very portable. Good deal!

Small tank bag for carrying the essentials
I bought the icon primer for my Yamaha V Star 250. This is a small bike, so a large tank bag would look awkward. The Primer both fits and looks great and doesn't interfere with riding in any way. It's easy to pull off and put back on. It's not a huge bag by any means. But any larger on this bike (or a similar style 250) would look out of place.
As far as capacity goes. I am currently storing my Icon PDX raincoat in the bag. That takes up the majority of space. I can squeeze in my wallet, phone, and a drink and still have bit more room.
The backpack feature is sort of silly for a bag this small and I'm not sure how often I will use them. Another reviewer mentioned those teenage girl backpacks and I have to agree. The straps are very lightweight thin mess and you have to remove and reattach them between uses. There is small zippered pocket near the bottom of the bag where you can store them. The bag does have a small handle for easily carrying it.
The only short coming with this bag is the lack of a clear pocket for a map, GPS or smartphone. I may look for a clear pocket that I can attach to the top of the bag so I can keep my iPhone accessible.
Overall, the Primer is a decent small bag with an affordable price.

Love this tank bag
This bag is perfect for my Honda Rebel. It stays put at high speeds, doesn't interfere while riding. Love that it converts into a small backpack. I remove it after riding and always clean the gas tank before putting it on to avoid scratches. So far ok. I can fit a small bottle of water, wallet, keys, phone. Perfect for when you don't need a lot of luggage!!

Excellent Small Bag
Nicely made and mounts securely with the magnets. Here's what I usually carry: Daily newspaper (folded small), wallet, phone, glasses case, garage door opener, key chain with house keys, extra t-shirt. I sometimes stop and get a bagel for breakfast, which gets stuffed in there too.

Not too big, not too small
Great tank bag for the daily commute or when you don't feel like carrying everything in your pockets. Perfect for sportbikes as its small enough it doesn't interfere with being in a tucked position, but its still big enough to carry your keys,wallet, cell phone, etc.
The magnets hold strong on both my FJR1300 and SV650. I've never had a problem with it shifting or coming off. The "backpack straps" it comes with are kind of pointless. The bag itself is easily portable and with the straps it makes it look like one of those mini backpacks you see a 12 yr old girl running around with.
