I was looking for a basic waterproof tank bag for my F650GS (single) which does not require a separate raincover and which would fasten securely to my plastic (faux) tank. The Fandango appears to be very well made of excellent materials and the size is perfect. While I have not ridden in the rain yet, the bag looks like it should be fairly waterproof, with waterproof zippers and sealed seams. I wonder why the company chose to supply the sealer for user application rather than seal the seams with tape at the factory, as the tape is proven technology which in my experience works well in other outdoor applications. The strap on mount is very sturdy, but I am still fussing with it to get it to sit straight on the tank. I added some flat strap hooks which seem to work better on my bike than wrapping the straps around the frame.

I use this cover for travelling. It fits my BMW R1150R with sidecases, a small topcase, and a touring windshield with room to spare. I used an earlier version for several years. This one was a replacement. The new cover has a couple of worthwhile improvements, especially the security strap, which makes the cover easier to use and more secure on the bike. It also seems to be more water repellent, but that could just be because it's new.

I purchased these to go with the AST Jacket. They seem to be very well made and of quality materials. They seem to fit a bit small, especially with the liner in place. The stiffness of the heavy duty cordura may be part of this perception as they will likely break in a bit. I would prefer to have an adjustable waste like other overpants, rather than just the elastic for expansion. I had the length shortened as suggested in the promo material. My tailor did a nice job, but she said it was quite difficult and required about four hours work because she had to do so much disassembly. The cost was $40 for both the pants and the liner. If there is an easy way to do this perhaps Olypia shoud include some alteration instructions with the product.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Construction is solid, using quality materials. The cuffs, front zip, and collar do an excellent job of sealing out the wind. The collar in particular is the best I've experienced. It is just high enoughto seal around the bottom of my helmet, has a nice soft lining, and doesn't interfere with turning my head. The hi-vis yellow is, well, h-vis. I haven't had a chance to try the venting yet, but there is a lot of it and it appears to be ver well sealed when closed. Due to the heavy materials the jacket is a bit stiff, but I expect it will break in a bit over time.
Yes, I recommend this product.
