Tank Bag Suggestions plz

I would like to find a nice tank bag for my 96 KLR. I know opinions are like noses eveybody has one, but I would love some suggestions and maybe some pics. I know this sounds a little corny, I dont want one to big but also not to small. I would like it big enough to throw my phone, wallet, and maybe some small personel protection of some type. All suggestions will be appriciated. Thanks

I always liked the factory Kawi one. Not sure if they still make it since it won't work on the new KLR.

As Larryboy stated, the factory bag is the best fitted bag for the KLR and you don't even have to remove it to fill up with gas. As for others, I like two different ones;
The Wolf Explorer Lite

2008 DL650 VStrom Yellow and Black
Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.

Another fan of the Kawi bag, here.. Been using mine since I bought it in 2004. Plenty of room, don't need to remove it to fuel, and expandable, too.

I'm not promoting KLR650.com's website, but here's what it looks like.. http://www.klr650.com/tankbag.htm Their's is a copy, or maybe the same manufacturer as Kawi's??

'06 KLR w/ magnetic tank bag. The bag is expandable & comes w/ straps that you can use on the bike too. The bag also has a shoulder strap if you want to carry it with you over your shoulder.
