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!

Great Pack
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.

Best Tank Bag I've Had in 21 Years of Riding
Folks, I've owned a metric honkload of tank bags over the more than two decades I've been riding, and this one beats *all* of them hands-down -- including the new Givi bag I just bought for another bike. Let's break it down.

First, the stuff I don't like: As mentioned in the video, the zippers to expand the bag are inconveniently identical to the zippers to open the main compartment.


THAT'S IT. That's all, that's literally the only thing I don't love about this amazing bag, and it's not even a big deal.


Going through the good stuff in absolutely no real order:

The clear pocket for phone/GPS is nice and big, has a waterproof zipper, and a powerport hole. Niiiice. The power cord hole is not waterproof, but that's easily remedied by the protective rain cover.

The mesh pocket right below the clear pocket is the perfect size for credit cards, money, and other small items I need to access frequently.

The bottom is a very nice material that doesn't seem to mar the paint if care is taken. The magnets are incredibly strong!

"Glove box" -- the area below the clear pocket flap is perfect for shoving gloves into at gas stops or when walking around off the bike.

The zippers are all high-quality and seem to be pretty waterproof.

The best bits are inside, though: That hi-viz lining!!!! It's amazing, life-changing, and wonderful. It's so flippin' easy to see everything in there, even at night, I don't know how I ever lived without this feature.

That water bladder area, though! This has saved my buns numerous times out in the desert heat here in SoCal. I have a 2-liter Platypus bladder in there, and they work flawlessly together. The tube port to the outside world is super convenient.

Two zipping interior side pockets are smallish, but big enough to hold a pocket flashlight or other small items. A larger mesh pouch at the back of the bag is amazing for holding a bunch of other stuff, and there's also a clip to hang housekeys or other stuff from. On the top flap, there is another mesh pouch that's long and narrow.

Built-in rain cover -- Another very nice touch! I know it's not going to go flying down the road, because it's stitched into its storage pocket in a very handy way.

SIZE. I can pack an absolutely unholy amount of Stuff into this thing, especially with the expansion unzipped. It is deceptively large - it just doesn't look that huge until you really get into it.

Can be magnetically mounted or strapped to plastic tanks. Also, the triple tree strap can be fully removed - A+.

I can't say enough good things about this bag! If I could buy the designers a beer, I absolutely would. I am 100% in love.

Great Product!
I am currently using this tank bag on my 2006 Suzuki GSXR600 for a daily commute to and from work (roughly 40 miles round trip, travelling at 80-90 miles/hour on the Highway). I have been using it with the magnets and haven’t ran in to any problems as of yet despite the half plastic/half metal tanks on the 2006-2007 Gixxers. The bag is big enough to comfortably fit a pair of shoes, extra shirt, lunch and a 40oz stainless steel water bottle. It has a pouch on the front of the bag with a plastic cover for maps, GSP, cell phone, MP3 player etc. Touch devices are fully operational through the plastic. The bag also expands so you can fit more stuff than listed above. The quality of the bag looks and feels sturdy and seems like it will last a while. The bag also comes with a life-time warranty through Dawco . For anyone looking for a compact bag without having a lot of bulk, this bag is a great option! Thank you Revzilla for the prompt delivery and great customer service!!

Loved this!
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...

Expensive, but solid.
My main reason for purchasing this bag was simple: a device window large enough for a modern smart phone. But the other features, combined with the really solid construction, make it worthwhile. The compartment area is very large (and expandable). The window is touch-friendly (though not especially swipe-friendly). The flap has inner storage. There is a permanently-attached rain guard stored at the front, which is nice. The magnets are very strong, and a security cable is included. Complaints? The side color panels are a bit gimmicky, and again the price. But you're buying a high quality product here.

Durable sucker
The bag is a bit large, and pricey, but in the end, worth it. It's hanging onto my KTM 640 ADV and holds everything I need to put into it, including full rain gear and two pairs of gloves WITHOUT unzipping the expansion zipper. It has survived many falls and branches and doesn't seem to mind. I stopped using the water bladder through the pack, but it's a nice feature for keeping one off your back if you don't need to take much.

A Great Tankbag and a great value
I haven't had a chance to do a long road trip so far with this bag, but for my day trips this bag has been great. The Revzilla video and other reviews cover most items, however I do have a couple suggestions on how this tankbag could be improved.

1) Replace the front strap hooks with snap clips. I've found the hooks too easily can slip/fall off before all straps are tightened.

2) The front strap needs a cross strap to hold the two ends in place. Without a cross strap either end can drop down and be a PITA to retrieve and replace.

3) If I want to be real picky, I wish the map pocket was a bit more rectangular, rather than the contoured shape (and I know that's very nit-picky).

I've spent more over the years on tankbags that haven't worked as well.

Curtis S on Feb 18, 2017
it use magnets or it use straps? because my bike (ktm 990 super duke) has a plastic tank. if it use magnets which one would be the best for my bike?
A shopper on Nov 2, 2013
BEST ANSWER: It actually has both the option of using just the magnets for easy install/removal, or both magnets & straps should you want added security...or have a plastic tank.
Is enough big to STORE a helmet?
A shopper on Dec 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: probably going to depend on your helmet size and shape. I have a Shoei RF1200 size small and it BARELY fits when fully expanded. I am able to close the zipper, but nothing else would be able to go into the bag, it's at full capacity and I probably wouldn't ride with it like that.
I have a BMW F700 GS - would this work for that? Also, I'm 5'2" so I'm worried about tank bags that would be come up high on me. Would you be concerned about this?
A shopper on Apr 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It should work fine on the bike. Its magnetic and sticks pretty well. It also comes with straps. I have it on a hayabusa right now. I am 5'11" and its ok for me. The bag was a bit smaller than i would have hoped for but it is extendable and gets a bit taller. If you are 5'2" it may come below your head depending on where you head is compared to the wind screen and how you sit when you ride. Hope this helps.
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?
A shopper on Mar 13, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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.
A shopper on Mar 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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.
A shopper on Dec 17, 2012
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Does this bag have shoulder straps or just one strap to be cross-slung?
Steve B on Mar 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
