    A great product, kept my camera and lens safe. I rode through 150+ kms of no roads,mud roads,very very jerky roads but the bag did not move and the camera was fit and fine to click this pic smile emoticon
    It can actually handle a lot of stuff. I kept a cam with kit lens, 2 extra lenses, a big plastic box (with basic first aid, and a tubeless puncture repair kit), a towel, lower, chargers, 4-5 snickers and a very small water bottle(on the top zip).
    Only thing which I did not like much is the side pockets, they cannot hold wallet, water bottle, etc. too small. A side pocket which can accommodate a water bottle would be the cherry on top of the cake.

    Got a Viaterra Fly V2 non-magnetic. Extremely happy with the product. Fit and finish is top notch. Used it couple of times and can vouch that it lives upto the expectation. Just one feedback, the quality of straps to fasten the bag to chassis can be improved. Overall great product.

    This product was on my mind since I saw a friend using it for his motorcycle tours. I finally got this for me…. !!!
    Beautiful product by Viaterra. The quality seems to be good and also worth the money spent. The compartments are very wisely designed. I own a RE350 and I am sure I will be thoroughly satisfied once I get to use it on my upcoming trip in winters.Hoping for the best. GOD BLESS VIATERRA TEAM.

    I have used the fly as a tank bag, as a tail bag and as a backpack as well. The padding, shape and support of the bag is so good that you can put in all your camera equipment in it without any worries.

    The shoulder straps are also very comfortable and the bag naturally looks like a backpack when mounted on shoulders.

    Kudos to viaterra for innovating such an amazing product.

    This bag has been my travel partner since last 3-4 years. A great product to keep your DSLR and Lenses safe during your long rides. Easy to use as a normal bag as well while you roam around. The pockets are very user friendly to access while on the go and to accommodate your essentials like wallets, documents etc. Takes about a minute or a two to mount it on a motorcycle (Duke 390 in my case).

    The rain cover is awesome – has been tested in extreme rainfalls and has always passed the test. The bag has kept the DSLR intact without any damage in small falls as well be it on snow or normal tarmac. A good to have product with a great service back up. You shouldn’t be thinking twice if you plan to buy this one from VT – you cannot go wrong with this tankbag. Happy Riding!

    Used this bag on a 1200km round trip, kept my camera luggage safe and had lots of space left over for more items in the bag. Looking forward to using this on a longer ride again!
