Rynox Optimus M Tank Bag: Review
Recently one of Rynox Gear’s latest tank bag cum tail pack unit landed in the ZigWheels headquarters and on initial glance, it looked like any other tank bag that we have used before. But little more exploration and it soon came to light that the OPTIMUS tank-bag is quite an innovative and neatly executed solution for the avid motorcycle traveller. To begin with, the built of the product is simply exemplary with regards to the overall fit and finish. Made out of good quality 1680D polyster material with PVC coating suited to withstand rugged use, the stitching too is strong and sturdy. Robust and well packaged, the Optimus tank bag gets heavy duty waterproof zippers, a large map-pocket, and 3M reflective material on the outside. There is also a large rain cover that makes sure the stuff inside the bag remains dry. Related: Rynox Gear launches range of touring accessories and gloves
Providing about 21-litres of storage space in normal form, the bag gets extension facility which hikes the storage capacity to 29-litres that can easily fit in a full-face helmet while leaving extra space to hold gloves, shades, water bottle, etc. With its narrow design, the bag has a tall-ish architecture which helps in giving it a compact form to not discomfort the biker during riding a motorcycle while allowing the bag to give enough space for storage. There are three side pockets to pack small items like shades, energy bars, chargers, etc, which come in very handy.
