thanks for all the feedback. i ended up getting the bag and it is great! its so convinient to be able to slide right into the rack and clip in. i also like that it is easily transportable as a small bag. i'm am totally satisfied!

I have the larger one that has side pockets that roll down to make panniers. It's very convenient to be able to take off without undoing a bunch of straps.
I give it a BIG thumbs up!

I'm just this GUY, ya know?

I have used the Topeak RX trunk bags . . the DXP's Yes . . . well worth the money! Down-side . . they add some weight to the ride, but if you are using them as I did, we were in the mountains for a few days through the Front Range and Poudre Canyon, Colorado. We would buddy-up and switch riders when it got too heavy!

I have had Topeak bag and rack system on my first bike which was an already heavy bike and these did add more weight. Aside from being heavy they were very nice!

Hi Dreppe08,
I haven't used one, but they look really nice. I have a Blackburn rack that I'm happy with, and didn't want to change it. If I were in your situation, I would have bought it. Maybe you could use it as a reward for making your goals?

Has anyone used the topeak mtx trunk bags? I have a topeak rack on my bike, so it seems logical to get one of the topeak bags that can slide in, but since they are obviously a bit more expensive then the generic kind, I was wondering if anyone had any experience with them... How do you like it and is it worth the extra money?
