Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty handy, although not perfect. The bag is nice when you don't have much to take with you. I fit my tools, tire kit and pump in with no problems. Add the U-lock and cable, change of clothes and a laptop and you are pushing it on capacity, though. I have had it come loose off the MTX rack that it clicks into before, but I was probably riding too aggressively for towing this around at the time. When it did come loose the pack protected my laptop fairly well, leaving only a dent on the corner of the laptop. Overall, the track system is pretty nice and the pack is well made, but I'm not sure I'd spring for this one again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bag, mount can use some work Let me start by echoing everyone's favorable opinion of this bag, I have used it every day since I bought it, 10 pounds off my back has made riding so much more enjoyable. It's well built, fits my 15in thinkpad perfectly, even with a 9-cell battery sticking out from the back. there's a bit more space after the laptop for your odds and ends as well. The one (big) con of the bag is that the MTX mount on my Topeak explorer rack makes rather loud noise when I ride over even the slightest uneven-ness of the road surface. the mount doesn't fit snug thus any vibration would cause the hard plastic mount pieces to hit each other and produce rather annoying thumping noise. maybe tying a bag to the rack will help. anyone else has this problem?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent, but might scuff your screen! I wrote an earlier review, and stand by all the points made in it. One discovery I made later, however, is that, when loaded on your rack, the laptop is on the bottom and everything else in the bag (chargers, papers, etc.) are on top of the laptop. This extra weight bears down onto the screen, and pushed my screen into my keyboard, and now I have some scuffs on my screen. Adding a piece of felt cloth or something between the screen and the keyboard might help prevent this for you. I hope that in the next version of this bag, Topeak will put the laptop in the topmost layer of the bag when on the rack, rather than the bottom. Still, I find it the best solution to date for transporting a laptop on your bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Topeak MTX Office Bag is Awesome This bag is awesome. I commute 12 miles round trip to/from work a couple times a week and barely notice the bag is on the bike. My computer screen has also scratched. It would have been nice to have known in advance to put something in to prevent this. There are a lot of nuances to the Office Bag where a better set of instructions would have made my customer experience better sooner. Slides easily onto a MTX rack.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great bag, but too small for my laptop This is a great bag, but unfortunately too small to fit my Dell M6500 mobile workstation. My laptop has a 17" screen but is at least 3/4" too long to fit. I recommend bringing your laptop along and fit testing it before you buy. I have to return mine and figure out another option..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bag I've been waiting for Finally, a bag that works with my Topeak MTX rack and takes the weight of a laptop off my back (when I used a backpack)! This also means that a backpack will no longer obscure my hi-vis jersey, which helps with safety. I've had this less than a week, so it's hard to tell how it'll hold up, but I own other Topeak trunk bags, and they're fine. Love the included rain cover, which is normally an extra $20 charge. Would like extra room to pack some clothes or food, but this is not what the bag was meant for, and it would greatly bulk it up, anyway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a relief! Like so many others I was glad to get the weight off my back. I own several Topeak products (including 4 different trunk bags) and this is proving be one of the most often used. Unlike others I can fit a 17" MacBook Pro into the case. In fact today in addition to the MacBook also carried a 11" Macbook Air, an iPAd2, power supplies for both Macs an external hard drive and usb cables. I just wasn't able to carry the Macs in the neopryne covers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great bag, but doesn't fit my computer. This is a well made bag which would fit my need nicely, but it doesn't fit my computer. I have a 17" computer but it is about 1" too long.

Will a Dell XPS M1730 fit?

Asked by: JustAsking
Yes, this office bag fits up to a 17 inch laptop.

this seems nice, but why $130!?   as a sanity check, the company's DXP bag has more pockets, more zippers, more reflective stripes, fold-out side panniers, is much bigger overall, and employs the same rack connect and costs $125.  $65 seems more like it.

Asked by: dduff617
The $130 price for the MTX Office Bag Rack Trunk is the manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) from Topeak.
