Can you recommend a good tank bag?

Hello, Can you tell me of a good tank bag that fits the KLR tank well and won't get in the way?

I think for fit and function it's hard to beat a Wolfman tank bag. I've made do with something else but it has been less than ideal.

3rds for the Wolfman!!!

With the caveat that it does sometimes get in the way when standing on the pegs in the dirt. Otherwise it's stellar

You don't know unless you ask.

I bought a Fieldsheer Contour tank bag and like it. Fits my '08 and looks rather sharp. Brought home a gallon of milk and bag of cookies in it (really, what more do you need - those are staples) without expanding it. Several pockets that are nice in size. There's my $.02.

I like the Kawasaki bag.. Fastens well, has plenty of room and it doesn't need to be moved to fill the tank. $50 well spent..

I have a Wolfman Enduro, a bit small, but I'm still very happy with it. The quality of manufacture is fantastic, well worth the extra$$$. Sometimes I wish I would've stepped up to the Explorer, however, the smaller Enduro has never let me down.
