Nashbar Waterproof Rear Panniers
Showing up at the end of your commute or touring day only to find soggy sandwiches, cellphones, clothes, and shoes is the bummer of all bummers. Avoid this cycling fiasco with Nashbar's Waterproof Rear 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 a whopping 31 liters of capacity, you can hit the road for months with these panniers.

For the ultimate all-weather touring capacity, we recommend pairing these with Nashbar's Front Waterproof Panniers which are a smaller 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
  • 31 liters of storage each carries quite a load
  • Mounts easily to racks
  • Reflective Logos on side and rear
  • Sold as a pair

Comments about Nashbar Waterproof Rear Panniers:

They held up a small 700 mile tour over mostly gravel roads and through some major downpours.

I had to do a lot of preventative maintenance, putting in washers on all the bolts plus using lock-tight on the threads prior to the tour their nuts all came apart exposing the bolts. After the tour it's disturbing to see how much wear the bungie cord attachments are showing. Touring accessories really need to come with some extra parts in case of failure on tour. if shirts come with extra buttons panniers should come with an extra bungie and bolts.

I hate black bags not only do they cook any food you place in them, they are hard to see down into and offer no safety for being seen by distracted drivers, bright yellow or green would be my preferred choice.

The strap going over the center was much too short. Loaded but not over stuffed it was a pain getting the strap to meet together - absolutely stupid length!

I would only recommend these if you are only occasionally going to use them. I doubt they will last with continued use. The fact that you HAVE to do all that preventive maintenance, they are black and poor roll together design it might of been better spending the extra money on a better bag(?) Again they did work fine on a short tour and for their price they are acceptable just not a product I would brag about.

    Comments about Nashbar Waterproof Rear Panniers:

    Took the product on a dirt/gravel towpath and about 30 miles into a 185 mile ride things went south. The panniers kept popping off of my rack causing me to stop every 10 or 15 miles to adjust them, re-attach and correct the bent hooks. Eventually the hooks become totally unusable and I had to end the ride to get rid of the panniers. Definitely spend the extra money to get better bags that don't wear out on a relatively flat surface so quickly or ride only on smooth roads.

        Not for rough roads

              Comments about Nashbar Waterproof Rear Panniers:

              Purchased for a 500 mile tandem tour of Quebec. Spent one day riding in a pouring rain all day and contents were dry. However, the hook fastening system is not very good - hit any sort of significant bump and there is a good chance you will be stopping to refasten. Plus the fastening system is already showing significant signs of wear after limited use - making it even more of a concern. A good value if you will be riding smooth roads but if you are on rail trails or the like than either replace the fastening system or buy a better pannier.

                  Comments about Nashbar Waterproof Rear Panniers:

                  Just finished a 600 mile, 8 day self-supported tour with these panniers through rough trails and LOTS of heavy rain. NOTHING got wet inside these panniers and they took a beating (crashed bike, rough terrain, mud, etc.). Great value if you can purchase these on sale as I did. My ONLY complaint is the mounting of the hooks to the bag is poor. The first thing I did when I received these panniers was replaced the hook mounting and added some large washers to ensure that the hooks did not pull through the fabric. Definitely a great entry set of panniers.
