Seattleites flock to the Ballard neighborhood every Sunday for one of the best farmers’ markets in the Northwest. If you’re rolling up on a bike, this is the perfect pannier to take with you. An easily hidden padded shoulder harness lets you wear the pannier as a backpack while browsing the stalls, and two simple yet sturdy pannier clips attach to your rack for the ride home. A lightweight waterproof base keeps your bag dry from street spray, and a removable rain cover protects your goods when the skies cloud over. Interior organization makes this a great option for casual office commuting as well!
• Padded tote handles that convert to backpack straps
• Front slip pocket and two side pockets
• Interior zip pocket and key clip
• Adjustable interior strap for securing laptop (or kale)
• Nylon rucksack-style closure
• Exterior clip to secure handles while riding
• Rain cover
This bag is awesome. It holds a lot, doesn't look like a pannier when its off the bike, is built well, and is really well-priced. I love it more every time I use it. I only wish it had more reflective fabric on it, and that the fastener at the top was not a rope loop and plastic hook - wish both ends were plastic. The dangling straps don't bother me, but I have a fender on my bike so they are out of the way of the tire. Overall - super glad I found this bag and bought it. I'm contemplating buying a second one.
It is my favorite pannier for both commuting and going to the store. It is easy on an off, has 2 great side pockets + 2 additional external pockets for my bike lock, sunglasses, bike gloves, iPhone, etc. The interior is large and holds a tremendous amount. It is comfortable to carry both on and off the bike. The only short coming of the bag is that the straps have to be tucked into the pannier to make sure they don't rub in the tire.
