Topeak Saddle Bags

Do you use this brand of saddle bags? I have in the past. A new source for these is GearBest. The link to their offerings. Topeak Best Deals + Free Shipping | GearBest.com

How do the prices compare to what you paid?

Not Topeak brand. I bought one on Amazon exactly like a medium Topeak for I think $15.

I did buy a Topeak trunk bag because I got a Topeak rack off a coworker and the bag slides on and latches to the rack.

I have the Topeak MTX DXP bag, it slides on and locks into Topeak's Explorer rack. I'm very happy with it, loads of storage space in just the top compartments. I rarely have to use the fold down side pockets, which are pretty darn big. They store about the same volume of stuff as the saddle bags on my motorcycle.

Been using it since 2011, and it's holding up great.

I have one of their micro wedge bags. I dig the quick-click mount idea, although in practice it does lessen your saddle fore/aft adjustment by a cenitmeter or two. Which depending on your desired saddle position and seatpost setback may or may not be an issue.

The perk is that the velcro is not really necessary, you you don't need to worry about trashing cycling shorts from that again.

I have the large strap mount Topeak wedge drybag. A hair on the small side for a "large", but overall a fine, functional bag.

I have a Topeak Sidekick Wedge in medium and love it. Has plenty of room for my roadside kit, and space left over for my keys, ID, and a few dollars.

It looks like GearBest.com lowered the pricing on the Topeak bags. They also ship free. What do you think?
