    Here’s what was in it. It carries more than I’ll ever need!



    That doesn’t show the water bladder or the 20,000 ma battery that’s always in there..

    I was a boyscout, so prepared.

    That reminds me of:

    One of my favorite things is how easier it goes on and goes off. If you grab the front handle and lift, it lifts right off and the magnets snap into the closed positions. Makes it easy to carry inside if you’re stopped somewhere ‘iffy’.

    (I carry a cheap motion sensor alarm in the front pocket, if I’m worried I set that before going inside... it’s loud and will hopefully deter anyone sitting on the bike or grabbing the bag!) see pictures*

    It will hold my canon rebel and a 75-300mm lens, a small tripod and extra filters, cleaning stuff, batteries etc.. with room to spare. It’s also nicely lined, so no worries about damaging camera equipment.
    Thanks!!

    I bought this one in 2014 to replace a Mini which had been discontinued. Quickly it went on the shelf to collect dust as I missed having the large map pocket of the Mini. This map pocket is small and tapered at the bottom, more or less useless if you like folding a map down to a 100-150 mile long rectangle. I searched the net until I found another Mini. Alas, I lost that Mini a year ago. For a man purse I use a Super Mini and stuff it in a saddlebag and pretty do without a tank bag at all anymore.

    Are you sure yours wasn’t the 12 L? It’s significantly smaller. Not being a map user, I can’t speak to how many miles of folded map fit in the pocket.

    That’s not meant to be mocking. I really haven’t ever used the map pockets for maps.

    Is this the Cortech Mini version that you had Dave? Not really anything quite the same out there anymore, that I've found.

    I have the map pocket from the next larger version. It's a little bigger than the one that came with it.
    (For some strange reason), people don't care so much about the map thing anymore.

    Yes. That's the one. I made a map holder base out of an old wet suit so I could use the removable map holder on the NC 700X which carries it's own "tank bag" in the frunk.

    I am so excited. I just went to get the parcel that arrived. Mine just came in and what a fantastic product! I couldnt have designed it better and more practical. More to follow once I get to go riding in the spring. Woohoo!

    Hey! Congratulations! I’m glad you’re impressed. It really does come across as great quality, agreed?

    I hope you love yours as much as I do mine! Keep me posted?

    Cheers!
