The Dowco Fastrax Xtreme is hands down the best dual sport and/or adventure touring tank bag we have ever come across for the price. At $65 it is on par and even superior in various ways with several high level brand adventure riding bags at 3 times the price.
We stumbled onto this lil’ nugget and haven’t looked back since because it simply serves all of our needs perfectly. While some adventure riders like a larger bag and some smaller we find the 6 Liter capacity ideal.
If you are in the market for a new tank bag we highly recommend you give this bag a shot. These are the features that sold us on the prospect and will keep Story Moto ADV coming back to the Dowco Fastrax Xtreme:
Excellent water resistance
Sealed and shrouded Zipper design
Holds shape when empty
SUPER simple 4 point quick release design that provides an attachment that doesn’t budge
Ideal overall shape and convex slip resistant bottom
Adjustable Bungee strap top will hold pair of gloves or an item as large as a 2 liter bottle
Extremely durable construction and components
Main body area padded to protect contents
High visible neon, fully Adjustable compartment dividers inside
Includes rain cover deluge however does stay dry inside without the rain cover in most normal circumstances.
One cannot go wrong with this little adv luggage arsenal addition. Enjoy!
