I just got a Sedici Como tankbag from the Cycle Gear store in Knoxville.

I like it so far. I just wanted something small, so it fits that role.

I had asked about the Sedici Garda and it did seem too big in the store.

1) Here's the Como in place:



2) It has 4 magnets. Sitting there only the two on the sides were holding, making it a little less than totally secure. I glued a steel washer to the gas cap and the 3 points of contact make a big difference.



3) A 4th point of contact would be even more secure. I may see about slipping a small piece of steel under the seat cover in the right place.

4) Reviews said an iPhone 6+ or 7+ would not fit - my 6+ does, but only out of its Otterbox case.

5) In my first few outings, it's been really handy. I had my gun and phone in there and it's quite easy to pop on and off. I'll probably dig up a shoulder strap for it to free up my hands.

In any case, pleased with my purchase so far.

Thanks for the review. Good idea with the washer on gas cap.

For $50.00 that's a good deal.

I think with just the two side magnets, it would be too insecure for serious off-road.

The gas cap washer helps a lot. I think the fourth under or on the seat tongue will have it stuck on pretty securely.

But it would take some serious off-road to prove it, and that will gave to wait awhile.

In any case, I bought it more for errand-running, and not necessarily offroad. For that, my small tail bag and a small backpack will probably suffice.

The one I borrowed was an older version and did not have gas cap washer and thingy for seat. That would help a lot. It will work great for errand running.

I bought one of the Coleman tank bags and found the magnets to be lacking. I went to Lowes and bought a couple of independent magnets that are roughly 1" x 2" x 3/4" . You can place them wherever is best and they hold like a BEAST!
