Worth the Money
Quick Summary - A good, sleek looking bag that should match the lines of most sport bikes at a fair price with a quick ZLA turnaround.

This bag is a good investment. It will not carry everything that a bookbag obviously can, but it will easily hold, EZPass or like device, garage door opener, cell phone, (Really not much larger than an iPhone in the dedicated case - don't bother with a phablet in that slot) wallet, etc etc. This bag has some strong magnets that provide great functionality and once you take it for a spin, you will be given the piece of mind that this bag is not dancing on the pavement 500 feet once you take off. It comes with a strap if you feel you need it but I have yet to use that since the magnets are plenty stable. Additionally, the strap can be secured in a tiny footprint within the bag for the first few rides until you so how secure the bag is. I have taken this bag on 200 mile rides at sustained 75 MPH without so much as a budge from the magnets. When you need to stop for fuel, the bag comes right off without a problem. Designed quite nicely. Few important details ...

I have a larger smart phone, (Samsung Note with extended battery) so I actually use the dedicated cell phone portion to hold my garage door opener. It makes life much easier than a dismount, grab the house keys, unlock the door, and go hit the door opener from inside the garage with the bike idling outside. My cell phone just rides in the main pouch. For the sake of the review, I tried other phones. Results basically are that no larger than iPhone.

EZ-Pass works from inside the bag. Tested in multiple states EZ-Pass throughout the northeast. Tunnels, Express and normal EZ-Pass tolls work flawlessly from inside the bag.

Pretty nice tank bag but not perfect
Like others have said the Manta XL is just a tiny bit on the small side but honestly it's just about right for commuter storage or that occasional day long group ride. Looks fine size wise on my FZ1.

The magnets are very strong and keep the bag in place, I would recommend though being gentle/careful with the magnet flaps when putting on or taking off, if taking off if you don't gently pull those off first you're going to drag the magnet flap over your tank when trying to remove the bag and possibly scratch the paint. I'd recommend making sure the bag and your tank are clean before putting on.

The cell phone pocket on the top is useless for today's smartphones, I was hoping that it would fit my Galaxy S5 however while it is barely wide enough it is a tad short in length. The corners are very rounded and rigid which doesn't fit today's phones. To fit comfortably your phone would need to be smaller than 3 inches wide by 5.5 inches long with really rounded corners. They should do away with the phone formed pocket and just make the entire top of that flap one big see through pocket you can just slide any sized phone/anything into.

To be a perfect bag it would need to be a tad bigger, more heavy duty zippers/pulls, have the rain cover be detachable so those who don't need it can remove it without cutting the strap that connects it. It would also be nice too if the main compartment had a few mesh zippered pockets to store little things like earplugs/gum/wallet, you could put them on the inside sidewalls and underneath the main flap.

Great Day Ride Bag
First off, it isn't a huge bag. If you're the type that loves huge tank bags, this may not be the one.

That being said, I love it. It looks very good, the magnets are strong, and it has a rain cover that isn't too overly flappy in the wind. The clear phone pocket is a good size, it fits my iPhone 5 with room to spare. I do wish it was easier to run a charger cord to the phone while it was in there, but that's a small nitpick. Other than that, it does what I think a tank bag should- holds the essentials securely, and at a good price.

I rated the durability at a 3 simply because I haven't had it long. I don't really abuse tank bags, though, and have no concerns that durability will be a problem here, it appears well-made.

Exactly what I was looking for.
I was looking for a smaller bag that I could use for my normal daily rides and this is a perfect size for that for me. If you're looking for a bag that is going to hold a lot of stuff for a trip then this bag isn't for you. Quality seems good, magnets are strong, and it looks great on the bike.

Great bag
I had purchased another bag which required straps to secure to the bike however, was looking for a good bag that had magnets to hold itself to the tank. This bag is perfect... I was surprised how strong the magnets are and the bag does not move at all when riding. The bag is a little small however, is perfect for carrying my extra items such as glasses, phone, tools, gloves, and extra clothes. The straps make it great for carrying when not on the bike. I ride a Honda Shadow 750 and the bag fits nicely on this bike.

Great size
The manta xl tank bag fits perfect on my '05 gsxr 1000. It's a perfect size for flip flops, board shorts and a clean t-shirt. Will hold a surprising amount of things for a short weekend trip. I recommend.

Exactly what I wanted
I needed a narrow tank bag that would fit on my Honda NT. The Manta XL is a perfect fit, seems well made (I'll know more in a year or two), secures sturdily with the magnetic wings tucked into the bottom pocket, and was a good value. Just what I wanted.

generous size for daily pocket stuff. easily fits keys, phone, wallet, chapstick, ear buds, small snacks, pocket knife etc. The cell phone pocket is not quite big enough for an iphone 6 :( also big enough for a change of shorts and tshirt. XL modes is also bigger to hold a 6 pack of bottles if removed from the package :)

Too small. Weird triangular shape didnt fit my gear well. Returned it.

I needed overflow storage for a cross-country trip. I had a small bike so didn't want something huge. Kept my rain gear, helmet/bike cleaner/rag, phone, electronics battery charger, 5-hr energy and a few other little odds & ends in this. The integral rain fly worked perfectly, only if you were using your phone for GPS, the rain fly covers the entire bag. Also, on my bike, I found the angle of the bag didn't allow viewing of the screen during daylight hours because of the reflection.

Fits the odd tank shape on the V-Strom quite well. A bit small, but it works for me and limits how much crap/weight I can pile on my tank. Happy with the function & quality of the product!

Looking to purchase this bag to use instead of a backpack to and from college classes. Will it hold 2 college size textbooks and a notebook? I ride a 2013 Ducati Streetfighter 848.

Thanks,
Xmarine

BEST ANSWER: That would probably be a stretch. I don't believe this bag would be accommodating. Even if it all did fit it would not stay on the bike because the bag would be full and flat sitting on a rounded surface. Smaller items and soft items work fine but you should probably go with something a bit larger.
Will the cellphone pocket fit an iphone 5?
A shopper on Feb 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Not sure of the exact dimensions of your phone but my Samsung Galaxy S3 with a hard case just fit in the cell phone pouch. While it was great for viewing in hours of darkness (particularly when using GPS) I found the angle of the bag on my bike relative to my riding position caused excessive glare off the clear plastic top on the pouch during daylight hours, preventing viewing of the phone unless practically standing on the pegs...less than optimal riding position to say the least. I found the phone got really hot in the sun as well, leading to more rapid battery loss which would prompt me to charge it, further heating it and, well, you get the gist. That was on a long, muli-day cross country ride though. On shorter trips, commuting and such, it didn't seem to have long enough to heat excessively.
Can anyone tell me the capacity in liters?

BEST ANSWER: Hi
I let you now that I still have it on a plastic bag new, because my motorcycle Moto Guzzi Dosent let to put on the tank because has plastic.
will this tank bag work on a triumph 2014 scrambler (off set gas cap)??
A shopper on Jun 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: If your tank is metal it will work I would think. It's got strong magnets to hold it.on.
