Which tank bag for 2015+ 650?

I'm a dyed-in-the-wool "tank bag guy" and even though I have amassed quite a collection over the years, none look like they'd work particularly well on my new '15 Versys 650. So, what have you found that works well? Lock-on, strap or mag suggestions; bring 'em on! Thanks!

I use the magnetic "T-Bags" one.







and here it is 'mounted' (I use a BLACK one in Canada)....



I've never had a problem w/ the bag slipping (I DO attach the tether-cord around the handle-bar riser).

I'm a big fan of new Givi 3D tank ring tank bags. They hold their shape when empty, are attractive, lightweight, and waterproof without a cover and Givi's tank ring mechanism is arguably the best method of attachment. I suspect this construction method will eventually make traditional fabric bags obsolete. I've used all three types of attachment and am most satisfied with Givi tank ring. Definitely worth consideration IMO.
