Almost wrecked & review of Topeak Aerowedge saddle bag

I have a Topeak Aerowedge saddle back. I bought it because it is big enough to fit a spare tube, a few tools, a phone, keys, and my lunch. Today, I hit a bump and the plastic clip that holds it on to the saddle snapped and the bag flopped down and got wedged against the rear wheel, locking it up.

Topeak is going to send me a new clip free of charge. I think I am going to augment it by sewing on a velcro strap to loop through the saddle.

I'd recommend the bag, but get the version with the velcro strap instead of the one with the plastic clip.

I have the version that has straps that loop around the saddle rails. Works great. I use a medium, and it's big enough to fit keys, phone, wallet, spare tube, mini tool, and tire levers.

The micro size is perfect for carrying just the essentials (tools, tube, CO2, etc.). I have the buckle/strap version and it has been great on all the bikes I've used it on.
