The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.
Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.
Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

Topeak MTX TrunkBag DXP with Expandable Side Panniersis rated4.0out of5by8.
Rated5out of5byTrailMamafromGreat BagI ride 14 miles each way to/from work during all seasons. This is my 2nd Topeak bag; first one is a bit smaller, still good, but I got this bag b/c it is expandable, holds more gear thanks to the expandable feature for the top compartment. I pack my work clothes, gym clothes, lunch, bike lock, shoes, paperwork in this bag (panniers as well as top section). Holds a lot of stuff; I can't emphasize this enough! On the 1st bag, though, I really over-stuffed one of the panniers with clothing and a top seam ripped. Same might happen with this one if really over-stuffed, but the pannier can still be used on the ripped version, so not a big problem. I'd definitely recommend this bag. And I like the fact that the bag slides on/off the accompanying Topeak bike rack; sooooo easy to use and the bag is fully secured onto the rack. Great product for commuters!

Rated4out of5bytbakefromGood spacious bagI use this bag everyday for everything. It carries my extra gear, locks, rain gear, anything I need to take along. It also expands easily for carrying groceries and carryout from restaurants.
I haven't gone camping with it yet, it seems to be tough enough to be up to the task.
The only con I have found was the other day when I got caught in a down-pour. The bag and it contents were soaked. Fortunately it was not a problem for me, but you may want to get the rain cover if you ride in raining conditions.

Rated4out of5byrunninmannfromNot as good as previous versionI bought this for my wife's bike to complement the one that I have on my bike when we grocery shop. This version has hard sides that provide added protection, but also limit ability to squeeze in items. The previous version also includes a separate smaller top compartment convenient for storing keys, cell phone, wallet and the like. The new version eliminates this. I bought the previous version about six years ago for just over half the price of the current version.

Rated4out of5byspoongutsfromtrunkbag dxpI like it overall. Haven't tested it in the rain. Like the pop-up bag. Could have gone bigger if I wanted, so can't complain about size. Easily detachable. But you can't lock it up if you leave the bag on the bike. Also think it would be cool to have backpack straps, maybe detachable?

Rated5out of5byMarie on wheelsfromAll my paniers in one! :)We do day trips and are working up toward week long excursions. This is for my son and husband (already has one). They need a quick all-in-one panier system that is easy to use and easy not to lose parts. They can keep their locks, helmet out of the rain, meals for the day, and a few fun things like compass, GPS, and rain gear all in one spot. My son has balance issues, so the nice distribution of weight is a big bonus.

Rated4out of5byWayne SfromDecent bike packGot the rack that this snaps into also. Works as advertised. I like that it expands with a zipper.

Rated1out of5byErik the backcountry guyfromNot a good bagI used these for commuting to work for the past year.... about 3000 miles. These were my first set of panniers, so I was excited. They held all my stuff fine, though I needed an extra case for my pc and it is awkward to carry. One day the bag fell off by rack. Aparently I thought it was clipped in, but it wasn't. I broke my computer. It happened again a few months later (and then the handle tore off). If you get this, be sure the bag is secured properly. It is easy to miss if you're in a rush or installing it has become habit. Besides the two massive holes that have formed on the bottom, here's the biggest drawback: CENTER OF GRAVITY. I recently replaced these with regular panniers that sit much lower. The center of gravity is much lower and as a result, there is a night and day difference in ride quality - much safer and more manueverable. I'm taking tight turns, weaving in and out now just because I can - I would never try that with a bag that sits as high as this one. So, don't get it, you'll be much happier with something like the Novara gotham set of panniers.

Rated5out of5byPrffromJust what I wantedSo far I am very pleased. Fully expanded it holds plenty for several days. Folded up in its smallest size it fits on the back of the bike just like it should and easily holds a days worth of my needs. Exactly what I wanted.
