Product Review: Oxford Lifetime X1 tank bag

Oxford Lifetime X1 tank bag, £29.99

Tester: Alison Silcox

Time tested: One month/1000 miles

What's good? I turn to this little bag when popping out for a quick spin or commuting to work. It fits purse, phone, sunnies and other essentials - this way I don't have to laden my pockets. It's got strong magnets in the base and has a long headstock strap. The magnets make the bag sit firmly on the tank but I always secure the headstock strap as well. With other tank bags this strap can foul the steering lock, but it’s not the case with this one. It's the smallest bag in the Oxford range but benefits from the same sturdy construction as others and feels made to last.

What's not? It lacks a clear pocket to tuck any directions or bits in, but then it's not really designed for touring. Seeing as it costs £30 I’d be tempted to go for the X2, which is a litre bigger and would be a little more useful.
