Oxford Lifetime X40 Expander Tank Bag, £94.99
Miles covered/time: 500/two weeks
What’s good? It’s a magnetic tank bag, it’s fairly large, and can expand to become larger. It’s very tall when fully expanded and it stores a lot of stuff.
What’s not? I used this for a trip to Devon. While riding one of the expansion zips went so the bag suddenly doubled in size and covered up the clocks on the Rocket III I was riding. I took out my waterproofs and carried on. A second expansion zip broke and the bag got even taller, so I couldn’t see the road in front of me. The bag then slowly worked its way off the tank and into my lap. This was less than ideal.
