July 19, 2015 Size: Medium Verified Purchase
I purchased size MEDIUM. Perfect size for me as it has plenty of room for your gear and you can unzip it to expand its size a bit. It has 2 internal elastic bands to secure some items as well as an internal mesh elastic pouch on the inside of the flap you open, and one attachment point for the rear light. It also has 2 elastic bands to secure something on the bottom side. Overall well constructed. Seems pretty light weight for its heavy constructed material. Zippers are well built. I would buy it again. And for this price beats anything locally I could find in this size and construction/function.
AM 4.0 out of 5 starsVery Nice Bag, Though Not Even Water-resistant
October 10, 2016 Size: Medium Verified Purchase
NOTE: This is in reference to a size *medium*. Picture is with the bag *not* expanded.
It’s a good bag for a road bike, as long as your seat is raised 4″+ from its lowest position (more if you want to put a tail light below it). It’s a bit hard to zip/unzip if pulled tight up against the seat. I have not had any issues with my thighs rubbing the bag. The bag seems fairly rugged, and has a reflective strip on the back. It attaches to the seat post via velcro (I trimmed mine so it wouldn’t stick out), and attaches to the seat with buckles.
It has elastic straps along the inside top (2), outside bottom (2), and outside back (1), to hold things, in addition to a small elasticated pouch in the flap hanging open in the picture. I put my multi-tool in it.
As far as contents go, I’ve put a fruit, multi-tool, CO2 with inflator, patch kit, and keys in it without having it expanded, and with room to spare. It’s really quite spacious.
With regard to rain/water: I have ridden at least 75, maybe 100 miles in wet/raining weather with this bag, and every time, my stuff inside has been either damp, or flat out wet. It is not weather proof (at least, mine isn’t), but putting stuff in freezer bags should be just fine. That’s the only reason I’m giving it 4 instead of 5 stars.
Joaquin J Elcano 5.0 out of 5 starsPossibly the nicest quality saddle wedge that you can find.

I believe having a nice saddle pack is a must if you are in to any type of cycling weather it is road, cross country, or mountain biking. Everyone should carry an extra tube, some patches, a multi-tool, and a couple other odds an ends that come down to personal preference. Without a small pack you may find yourself in for a long walk home or a long trip back to the car.
I prefer to keep my necessities in a small saddle wedge pack and Topeak makes some of the nicest bags out there. This bag is made of a nice sturdy 1200 denier. I believe it has a thin piece of plastic which is sewn into the inside to create a backbone for the bag. The back of the bag has a strip of Scotchlite Reflective material which makes it light up when a light hits it. It is held on to the bike by two quick release buckles that attach to the seat frame and a sturdy Velcro strap that attaches around the seat post. If you need a little extra space it has an expansion zipper which will add a decent amount of space. It is more than enough for an additional tube. It has a loop on the back which allows you to clip on a bike light. On the bottom they added a couple pieces of elastic that could hold an emergency poncho just fine. I do not think you could find a much nicer bag to keep the essentials. All of this weights in at 4 1/2oz.
If this review was helpful please click the link that says so. I did not receive any discount or anything in exchange for my review. I try to review all items that I purchase, are of the greatest quality, and that I believe deserve to have others know how great a product it is.
noway7454 5.0 out of 5 starsGreat pack, fits all of the basic stuff you need to carry.
August 8, 2015 Size: Micro Verified Purchase
This is a great pack. My favorite feature is the seat post strap. It’s elastic and it can also be spun around (it’s not sewn directly to the pack, it goes through a loop on the front of the pack). This allows you to keep any extra strap away from your legs. You’ll appreciate this if you’ve ever ruined a good pair of shorts from rubbing against one of these straps.
Despite it’s “micro” size (not sure how people can complain about the size, it says micro!) there is plenty of room.Like many others I have the following minimalist items in mine, both road and MTB:
Multi tool, patch kit, 700c tube, 2 levers, 2 CO2 cartridges, nozzle, some cash, house key.
I’ve heard (though never tried…) you can use a 700c tube as a backup for a 29er, so I don’t even bother trying to stuff a 29in tube in there. For longer MTB rides I leave this at home and use a camelbak anyway.
Durability seems great, I’ve had one for a few years now and just ordered another because I got tired of swapping one pack between two bikes.
Amazon Customer 5.0 out of 5 starsThe Medium is the right size Wedge Pack for me
July 11, 2016 Size: Medium Verified Purchase
This medium Topeak Wedge Pack is just right, I had the Micro size Topeak pack and it was far too small. This Medium size is big enough to hold one spare tube, multi tool, CO2 cartridge and inflator, patch kit with glue, tire irons, 6 bandages, handy wipes, some wire and a few plastic ties with a little bit of room left. That may seem like too much for some people but if I get stuck I will have most items that could make a roadside repair. Better to have to much than not enough for an average rider 40-60 miles a week. This pack also has the web on the back for my Blinky Light, its well made from good materials A++.
M. Marcus 5.0 out of 5 starsTotally Awesome Bike Bag! (Not too Big)
May 20, 2014 Size: Large Verified Purchase
I absolutely love the Topeak Large bag. Great quality and craftsmanship. Worth spending a little more! I do a side-by-side comparison between the Large and the Medium bags. Best bags that we have ever owned and yes, you can put an awful lot in them. See this video review to see how they look on the bikes and side by side. Hope the review helps!
