Ballard Market Pannier - Black


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. The padded tote handles make for easy veggie acquisition and, best of all, they convert to adjustable backpack straps for comfortable transport of heavier loads. Two simple yet sturdy pannier clips attach to your rack for the ride home, and a lightweight waterproof base keeps your bag dry from street spray. Interior organization makes the Ballard 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)
• Zippered top closure on Black and Radish;
drawstring on Dahlia and Red
• Exterior clasp to secure handles while riding
• Light loops with reflective detailing
• Dahlia and Red styles includes a rain cover

Almost-perfect bag!

I got this bag over two years ago for work. It's great looking (I have the dahlia model). It's big and holds a lot. The exterior pockets are useful--one fits a U-lock, another the water bottle, and the third small, oft-used items.

What would make this bag even better for COMMUTING (and I realize it's marketed as a, well, market bag) is a separate laptop sleeve instead of the strap, and perhaps another internal pocket or two for even more organization.

Also, if the Ballard Market Pannier could have a magnetic closure like the discontinued TOTO pannier, I'd like it even more---when you open the flap, the magnets hold the bag upright against my metal desk. VERY convenient.

I keep shopping for the perfect bike bag, and I haven't found it yet. Until I do, I'll keep using the Ballard Market Pannier and the Toto Pannier.

Got this as a gift and love it! Roomy, versatile and easy to clean. Can take to farmers market and fit a cabbage, cantelope and more in sturdy bottom. Also great as work commuter with laptop strap inside. Expandable zip top is nice feature. Backpack straps are not heavily padded but adequate. Easy wipe clean, fun print. 5 star function & design gave it 4 for being made in China.... :( seriously.....

I had to stop in to say this bag is truly the best. It has stood the test of time with only minimal wear and scuffing. Clips so easily to my bike and stays put with those 2 clips. Big enough for my 17" laptop in a case, plus a few books, water bottle, etc. I wish it had a zippered pocket on the outside of some kind, because it's so deep that things can get lost at the bottom, but truly, this is worth it. Considering that tough bike bags (looking at you Chrome) are NEVER under $100, this is a real value.
