Rapid Transit Recon 19 Magnetic Tank Bag
very good product
Only one real complaint. The phone pocket is pretty much worthless. I like the location, but it very easily could have been made bigger to accommodate today's average size phones. I have a galaxy s4, almost bust the zipper every time put it in. Once in it always sits crooked because it's too deep a pocket for a phone.
Aside from that, 100% functional. Definitely gonna buy more as gifts.

This bag was purchased for my brothers birthday and he really likes it so I guess it's a good product.

excellent price point
Nice bag. Has the shape I was looking for. Holds a good amount of stuff for a small bag. Looks good on a triumph. Magnets are strong.

Good bag with a few annoyances
This bag works well on my bike and stays in place with the super strong magnets.
It is oddly shaped, but holds more than it appears that it will hold.
The bag is well made, looks good and the numerous pockets really come in handy.
The zipper for the main compartment is fussy and annoys me every time I use it. Next time I will get a bag with a circumferential zipper.
The lack of a built in carry handle is also annoying. I use the detachable strap, but I sure wish it had a carry handle.
I really wanted to like this bag, and for the most part I do, but the nags of the zipper system and the lack of handle keep me from giving it 5 stars.

Good bag for metal tanks
I bought this bag for a Route 66 trip which covered over 4,000 miles. The bag did it's job which is to keep my stuff secure on the tank while riding. My only complaint is the same I have with most tank bags these days. The map pocket is terribly positioned! It also needs a pouch that will hold a smartphone in a case. I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 and the pouch isn't even close to holding the phone even without a case! Other than that, it's a great bag!

Bought this bag for my USA 4 corners ride. I rode over 11,000 miles in 22 days. The bag worked great, extra room for drinks and snacks. The map pouch works well.

Great tank bag, nice features
Just got this tank bag and took it on a 3 day trip. It's unexpectedly well designed. At first, I thought the map window would be too far forward, but it is not. The shoulder straps and single sling strap also make this easy to carry and transform into a backpack/daypack. Other nice features include the way the side magnetic flaps fold in and stick to the back when not in use and the small pouch for tucking away the end magnetic flap. Also got to test the rain cover and can verify that it works. I was able to pack rain gear, water bottle, hat, camera in this bag (including cell phone outside and map). The fit is ideal for smaller, narrow bikes.
I down rated the finish and durability because the zippers seem a little cheap and small for the use they'll have to endure. Also, the map window is really narrow but this is a small bag.
Finally, I have an older motorcycle (we're talking 1972 here) and the horn and starter buttons are very prominent on the left and right handlebars. I have to watch those tight parking lot turns or I'll bump the horn or starter button on the bag.
If you need a good, small bag that is well made and portable, you can't go wrong here.

Great tank bag!
Purchased this after seeing all of the positive reviews. Definitely a great product. Goes on and off the bike easily, and doesn't slip while at speed even if nothing is in it to weigh it down.
My only complaint is that there's no solid way to strap the backpack straps down while riding. They are easy to take on and off and there are pockets for them, but I would prefer to stow them out of the way so that you're not digging them out and putting them away every time you get on and off the bike.
All in all though, I love this bag. Highly recommend it!
