  1. Excellent product

    By Paul July 13, 2015

    I have been using a commuter pannier for three months and I am extremely satisfied with the product. I wish I got it straight away instead of purchasing a low end pair of panniers that died within a year.

    I use it nearly every working day to carry my laptop (a 15" MacBook Pro) and it feels completely safe (the laptop is kept inside a thin sleeve). The commuter pannier is large enough to also carry everything else I need daily including few papers, basic cycling hardware (rainlegs, a light cable lock…) as well as a small preschool school bag, and more on occasions.

    Even under medium rain, which happened infrequently, everything inside has always been completely dry, including papers stuffed in the external pocket. Today, it still looks like brand new.

    The mounting system just works and the pannier is very easy to install and remove. It definitely wouldn't fit the original rack of my vintage bike (I haven't even tried) but it fits a modern, unbranded pannier rack I bought for this purpose.

    Finally, the commuter pannier is elegant enough to be brought in meetings with corporate clients, and the mounting system in the back is so discrete that no one seemed to have noticed so far this actually is a bike pannier.
