I'm taking atrip this weekend that will likely require riding in the rain. How watertight is the BMW tank bag? Can i rely on contents staying dry, or should i use dry bags for contents?
Thanks

With the waterproof cover on it keeps fairly dry but without things can get a little wet in there.

I've ridden through some day-long downpours and it has worked fine. Do up the drawstring on the waterproof liner and make sure you connect the snap fastener under the lid.

Spent the last 3 weekends doing 800km per weekend in extremely wet and cold conditions. Had my wallet, iPhone and Canon SLR camera in tankbag. No sign of moisture!!

Mine works almost as good as the fuel strip on my RT :rolleyes: I just use large zip lock freezer bags in the tank bag...

Although I did use the drawstring and snap for two days headings west through the remnants of Hurricane Isaac and everything stayed dry. Maybe I'm just a pessimistic optimist.
