Nashbar Waterproof Front Panniers
Discovering that the rain has infiltrated your bags is like getting smacked in the face with a wet beach towel. Avoid this cycling tragedy with Nashbar's Waterproof Front Panniers. They are made with rugged 400 denier nylon which is scuff, puncture, and tear resistant, and treated with EPU coating on the inside which seals the deal--literally. A roll-top closure makes it impossible for water to work its way in...you pretty much have to throw these panniers in a river to get your stuff wet. With 14 liters of capacity, you can certainly stow some stuff.

For serious all-weather touring capacity, we recommend pairing these with Nashbar's Rear Waterproof Panniers which are a larger version of this item.

  • Durable 400 denier outer material w/EPU coating is ultra tough and totally waterproof
  • Folding "roll-top" closure keeps rain out completely
  • 14 liters of storage each carries quite a load
  • Mounts easily to racks
  • Reflective Logos on side and front
  • Sold as a pair

    Comments about Nashbar Waterproof Front Panniers:

    I used these on a two week tour around Lake Michigan. I didn't ride through heavy rain for prolonged periods, but there were frequent showers along the way. These panniers were indeed waterproof and the attachment system was secure and fairly easy to mount and remove (I used them with a Planet Bike Eco Rack). All the buckles and straps held securely and the mounting points for rear lights are a nice touch. If not for the plastic coating on one of the rack hooks wearing through, I'd give them a perfect rating. Make no mistake; these are wonderful panniers for the price. If you know how to pack lightly, consider two sets, one each for front and back of the bike. Heartily recommended!

    Comments about Nashbar Waterproof Front Panniers:

    Bought these front bags for a bike tour but I couldn't find a front rack that fit my bike. While the search continues, my wife uses them on her back rack for going to the store. They hold quite a bit for small bags, quality seems equal to my more expensive name brand bags and I like how folds and buckles to keep the rain out. The price was half of what other brands are so that's a huge plus. My only complaint is the bottom hook likes to lay flat and it was too closed making it nearly impossible to connect it to the bottom part of the rack. I had to use pliers to open the hook by a few MM making it easier to work with. Nashbar needs to find a better hook that sticks out and catches the rack with ease.

        Comments about Nashbar Waterproof Front Panniers:

        I used these panniers in the spring of 2015 on the GAP trail from Cumberland, MD to Pittsburg, PA. They worked well keeping my gear supported and dry. I didn't worry about packing gear in plastic bags as I had to do for my rear panniers which have worn off their waterproof lining. I liked that these kept the weight of my gear low and let me evenly distribute it along the bike.

        It was a little inconvenient after accessing to roll the opening closed then strap it down and clip it to create the water-tight seal. As opposed to a zipper or top flap. But I was confident the seal would keep out the water.

        I then used these panniers in the summer for my ride on the C&O towpath from Cumberland,MD to Washington DC. It isn't a smooth path. These held up to the pounding without any damage and without popping off my front rack with about 12 lbs in each side. The section of the path from Harper's Ferry to DC was puddles and mud due to heavy rain the night before. The panniers kept everything dry. I ultimately didn't mind the inconvience of rolling them closed to keep out the water.

        Comments about Nashbar Waterproof Front Panniers:

        I use these panniers for my 26-mile (round trip) commute. I ride on streets, trails and busy roads in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains.

        These panniers will rarely see rain, but lots of dust and dirt given our dry climate and have served me very well so far.

        The fabric seems a bit cheap at first, but is actually pretty robust. The mounting hardware is good and hasn't bounced off my rack yet (miraculous given the streets here).

        EXCELLENT VALUE!!!

          Purchased for touring as my front panniers. Impressed by the quality of workmanship, as good as my $200.00 waterproof German panniers.

              Comments about Nashbar Waterproof Front Panniers:

              Given that it is currently snowy wintertime, I haven't had a chance to use them but they appear to be the perfect size for the front rack for touring purposes as well as for the rear rack for commuting purposes. The construction looks solid.

              The only complaints I have about them is that the description on the website doesn't really make it clear that they are sold as a pair and secondly, when they arrived, one was packed inside the other making me think that they were sold singly until I examined the pannier more closely to see the other one inside of it.

              I look forward to using these in a couple of months.

                  Comments about Nashbar Waterproof Front Panniers:

                  So I've read in the past that the panniers had rivets holding the rack hangers and plastic backing onto the pannier itself, but now they come with everything bolted on, which makes it much easier to service if you have to. I've had these for a few weeks and ride 4 days a week for a total of 65 miles. I've encounted rain on almost everyday of the last week or two and they do the job they are supposed to do. I would say the only thing I WISH they had were an additional smaller pocket on the outside of inside so that I can place small stuff in without it getting lost between clothing and other junk one puts in a pannier. All the straps and buckles are very secure and I can't imagine them ripping off with ease. Also, the hook that attaches to the rack is a bit small for some rack tubes (radius size), but they are easily mallable with some tools so that they will hook on. And, lastly, don't worry about the hooks falling off...

                    I bought them for a family bike trip and needed some front bags for our Bike Friday tandem. These bags are no-frills but a lot of bang-for-the-buck!

                    They appear to be water-tight based on reviews (it didn't rain on our trip). The only real difference I can see between these bags and the higher-priced bags is the mounting hardware.
