StarStarStarStarStar Excellent Product

by
Ownership: several months
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Great bag that slides on your rack of the same company. Durable with enough room, yet you can use the shoulder strap and take it with you.

Cons

Don't know of any cons at this point.

StarStarStarStarStar Good Trunk Bag

by
Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Well made, and combined with the matching bike rack makes the bag easy to attach and detach. The bottom interior cushion pad folds to the side and gives the trunk area a bit more depth. I can put a small soft sided cooler in it and transport fresh seafood and perishables from the market.

Think hard about the size you think will work for you; though it's a good size, I wish now I wouldve purchased the larger bag with the expandable side compartments.

Cons

Side zipper compartments are pretty much useless, the only thing I think might fit in them is a standard envelope. I think they're more for looks than a actual feature.

Other Thoughts

I use it a couple times a week, makes transporting a few groceries or a change of clothes very easy. It's not water proof, so I coated it in Scotch Guard which helps, but after riding in a down pour it will be wet. Not a big deal though, just wipe it down and let it air dry and it is just fine. Just use a plastic zip bag to put your things in if you think it's going to rain.

It goes on/off easily; remains secure; the carrying handle is okay for short times or the shoulder strap is comfortable for longer walks. It's large enough to carry a lot of gear. It will see a lot of use.

StarStarStarStarStar Great Bag, will carry more than you need

by
Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

Very well made trunk bag. You can put more in it than you really need. Weight counts!

But, you can load it up with phone, wallet, glasses and whatever and take it into a cafe for lunch.

The bag and rack add a nominal amount of weight to your bike. Probably only 2 or 3 lb.s.

Cons

You can load it up with tools and odd bits that you don't need on a ride.

As always, think about what you want to achieve and go forth. Less is more etc...

Other Thoughts

Sadly, I brought the bag in the house one fine day and left the bike in the garage. Visitors at 0300 dropped by and swiped my bike and rack. Good news is they left a brand new set of bamboo fenders behind.

Bought a new bike for the bag. Always lock your bike to something in the garage. Lawn mower, wheel barrow, something that will make a lot of noise and/or slow down the villains.

StarStarStarStarStar Nice quality bag that is well designed.

Slides on and locks firmly to Topeak rack.

StarStarStarStarStar Good general purpose cargo bag

by
Ownership: several months
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Part of the Topeak rail system so it's easy to mount and remove which is handy when you have to leave your bike or do a quick re-configure. Good quality construction and has so far performed well.

Cons

A little better accommodation for mounting a rear light would be nice since the bag blocks anything mounted on the seat post. It does have a loop on the back end but only certain types of light mounts will easily attach to it.

StarStarStarStarStar Topeak MTX TrunkBag EX for MTX Racks

by
Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Great product. It is well built and performs as advertised. Although Michigan biking is seasonal for me, I used it a lot and was never disappointed. I liked the convenience on places like Mackinac Island where bikes are the primary means of transportation. A simple clip, slide and go to your take possessions with you when leaving and locking your bike and doing the reverse upon return makes life easy when you need to carry stuff with you when biking.

Cons

None so far.

StarStarStarStarStar Travel Bag

by
Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Big enough to carry all that I need.
Made of durable material.
Still looks good after 3 years and several thousands miles.
Has bungie straps built in so that I can strap things to the outside of the bag.

Cons

None

Other Thoughts

I use this bag on my trike. I use the trike for commuting and I need to carry a lot. I looked at a lot of bags before I decided on this one. I wanted a bag that was tuff and would retain its shape. I don't think that I could of picked a better bag.
