    Giant Loop Gas Tank Bag

    I bought the GL gas tank bag from GL this week. The one gallon bags were on back order so I called them to find out when they would be available. They found one and offered me free shipping and it was delivered today. They are a bit pricey at $150 but I need extra fuel and I didnít want that red tank on the back of my bike.
    I tried to fill it this evening without getting gas on the canvas but that damn near impossible. The gas caused one of the labels to melt which is BS. Iím going to call them tomorrow on that problem.
    I do like how flat it lays and I will update after my next ride.
    Here some pictures of it on a Stock Yamaha Rack, CycleRack front and rear.

    I didnít have time to remove my other bags but this does give you an idea of its dimensions.

    That looks pretty cool. I like that when its empty you can just fold it up. Does it have some type of nozzle? Is it DOT or another government agency approved. I could see the guy at the pumps not wanting to fill a bag full of gas.

    You can buy a nozzle but I didn’t buy it. My bike is use to gas being spilled all over it . This is what I found on GL website.

    Most of the states I ride in require us to pump our own gas.

    Yeah, this is pretty neat. I've seen others type of bladders before as well but I think your money was well spent. Better than the empty liter pop bottle I use on occasion.

    Nice! I've been looking at these, lately, but just haven't been able to pull the trigger on that price, yet. I have a 1gal Rotopax both for gas and water, but my current setup puts them under the pannier bags when mounted - a wider load than I'd prefer, and have to remove the bags from the rack to get to the containers. Thought this would be perfect to mount to the top of one of the panniers. Looking forward to hearing future reports from you on this.

    Also debating two 1.5L fuel bottles and the Wolfman bottle holders, but even that is about $120, and not quite a gallon of fuel...

    Tom Dryden gave me a Moose rack to go along with the GL gas bag. It fits perfect under the rack allowing me to completely utilize the top.

    Ryan at GL replaced my original bag due to one of the labels melting after I got gas on it. It’s impossible to fill the bag without getting gas on the canvas so I hang it outside to air out. It’s not a big deal to me due to its importance. I can fill my gas tank without spilling gas as long as I need the whole gallon. GL does offer a spout.

    The pictures show the bag unsecured but as you can see there are plenty of loops to secure it.

    How goes the GL fuel bladder after 5 months? It's still on my radar, but I have a Desert Fox Overland 6L Fuel Cell arriving shortly. Curious to hear if you've gotten some more use out of it and have anything more to note.

    Took the Desert Fox out for an overnighter this past weekend. Easy to fill, easy to strap down, no gas stink. Seems pretty durable. I really like the size and shape of the GL bag, but the price was right for me on this one ($100).
