Here's an alternative to the $20 Coleman Stearn tank bag.

They are the QuadBoss XT Tank Bag for about $60.



I prefer the QuadBoss because:

...it can be mounted higher and interferes less with your knees,

...the gas tank hole does not require resizing

...it retains it's shape and is easy to open/close

...and it has a padded pistol pocket.

Oooo i like what i see, does it secure to the tank in any way? I've been wanting a different tank bag than the one I've got now, cuz it hangs too low and flaps in the wind. Made for a Quad of course but that one looks like it fits much better.

It comes with rip & stick velcro. I felt better after attaching a quick disconnect strap over the bike's downtube.

I like 'em. I've about had it with zipper failure lately and the Stearns/ Coleman stuff barely lasted a week.



Where'd you get them, and do they have a means of tying down the bottoms?

I bought mine from 4WheelOnline but there are other sources I'm sure. There are four reinforced loops on the bottom of each bag to make attatching bungie cords, et al, simple.



QWERTY:

Constructed of "Heavy-duty 600 denier fabric with waterproof backing for extreme weather and abrasion resistance" according to QuadBoss.

This is kinda neat. I have a 1989 TW and a 2003 Bonneville.

I like the way these look... Thanks for posting the link.



Any trouble with your knees hitting them?

Yes, your knees will nudge the back edge, but no more than with the Stearns ATV Tank Bags. I'm really pleased with the QuadBoss.

They really do look nice but why not use the magnetic tank bag? you can pick a good one for around £10-£15(~20$)

No 'knee' problems
