Riding an adventure bike differs from just day tripping in many ways. You will be away for a longer period of time, thus needing to carry more things, and there is a higher chance that you will get hit by rain and dirt more than most.
Personally for me, I want a tank bag that is a decent size, something in the 10 litre range, has a clear screen so I can potentially put my phone or GPS there (and not have it get wet with rain or condensation) and a bag that can mount easily on different bikes depending on what country I am riding in.
The Giant Loop Fandango Pro Tank Bag represents the perfect combination of everything I would want. It features expandability, electronics compatibility via pass-through enabling on-bike charging and power inside the tank bag and a clear vinyl map pocket top.
The Fandango PRO’s underside includes a concealed document pocket, and two separate side zippers for easy mounting to harness.
Fuel fills are now easily accessed by simply unzipping either side from the harness, and the concave front allows vent hoses to breathe. The inside also features a convient divider and pockets.
Water resistant YKK zippers on bag. Two 2-liter Pannier Pockets also can be added to the Fandango Tank Bags harness and attach to tank, shrouds or engine guards. Available in white, black, yellow and orange. Prices start $190.00
This minimalist styled tank bag solution works for the Adventure Bike rider, as well as Dual Sport, Dirt or sports motorcycles. The Diablo uses the same Fandango harness for mounting on both metallic and non-metallic fuel tanks and cowls/shrouds. Bag unzips from harness. Large harness cut out provides easy access to fuel fill.
Arched front of Tank Bag allows vent tubes to breath freely. Super tough trucker’s tarp Bomb Shell reinforced with Diamond Plate vinyl. Rubber and webbing carry handle.
Clear vinyl map top pocket. Divider inside (removable) to secure camera or electronics. Lined with high-visibility yellow nylon. The bag is water resistant , and has water resistent YKK zippers fitted, using military-spec materials and construction.

Giant Loop Pannier Pockets

The Wolfman Blackhawk Tank Bag fits between the compact Enduro Tank Bag and the Explorer Lite. Blackhawk’s 8-liter capacity and trim lines give it great clearance for off-road riding. The Curved base contours snugly to most sloped tanks.
The foam structure gives the Blackhawk “Soft-Rigidity”, allowing the bag to flex. The new Map/Clear Pocket is a step forward in versatility. The traditional “Map Pocket” has been made more useful for adventure riders who use electronics with the incorporation of a strip of “Loop” material inside the pocket, and included a strip of Adhesive “Hook” to attach to your smart phone, GPS, Spot, etc. so they stay put.
Items can be kept organized with one stealthy outside pocket and an internal mesh pocket under the top. The silver interior makes it easy to see the contents of the bag at night. A small removable/adjustable bunji-cord across the top provides a convenient spot for gloves and such while fueling.
The bag also incorporates fore and aft flexibility allowing the user to get the perfect bag placement on the tank. The Blackhawk utilizes the same 4-point harness as used on the Explorer Lite, Rainier, and Large Expedition Tank bags, making switching out bags a snap. Prices start from $144.98
The Wolfman Enduro Tank Bag has been designed more for Dual Sport and Dirt bikes. The Enduro Tank Bag will fit virtually all dual sport and Dirt bikes, from the Suzuki DR650,DRZ400, to the XR 650L and the KTM525E/XC, and most bikes in between.
It features an all new 4-point quick release mounting and no-skid/no-scratch pad keeps the Enduro Tank Bag in place during the most aggressive riding.
The innovative design of the Wolfman Enduro allows the bag to sit on the tank and not interfere with the gas cap or the vent hose. The mounting harness is now the same for the Enduro Tank Bag, the Enduro Pocket and the Small Expedition Tank Bag.
