DXP Strap Mounting Cautions

Topeak TrunkBag DXP - Strap Mount

This was my second order from Modern Bike and I can't say enough about my experience with them. Their website is easy to navigate and everything I've ordered so far has arrived quickly and in great shape.
The Topeak trunk bag is a highly versatile design giving you as much bag as you need for different situations. Using the top trunk only for casual riding, workouts, etc keeps things looking streamlined. For a longer haul or commuting, just pull out the spacious panniers and have plenty of room for a laptop computer, lunch, light or enough backpacking gear for a weekend getaway.
Calling the velcro mounting straps on the DPX bag a "Universal" mount is a big stretch. The design and placement of the straps looks like an afterthought and simply won't secure the bag to carry the kind of loads the bag is capable of without extensive reinforcement using bungees or other methods to hold the bag securely in place. I can't mount the bag on my rack securely enough to even use the top trunk alone, much less the panniers. It's a serious design issue and cause for me to sadly, return the bag. If I didn't already have a rack on my bike, I'd have gone with the MTX (track) Mount as it is a much better option. Unfortunately, the MTX rack adds an extra $45-$50 to the total cost. Topeak needs to really re-engineer the velcro straps or better yet, come up with a truly Universal mount for this otherwise excellent bag.
Great bag for commuting

I love the capacity along with how it attaches to the bracket. This is my third DPX trunk bag, the first was received a gift from my daughter in 2010. My second is still being used although the zippers are getting worn out.
I commute to work, 10 miles each way almost year around in West Central Wisconsin. This bag allows room for tools, air pump, extra clothes, shoes or picking items up from the store on the way home from work.
It could be a little more waterproof with the panniers out.
