Comments about Nashbar Rear Touring Panniers:

I got these on sale at an incredible price to replace my beat up and smaller commuter panniers. I first bought a set of discount Nashbar panniers in 1991 and used them to tour Indonesia, Cambodia and New Zealand. That pair was made of lightweight material that I thought would give out on me but proved remarkably resilient. This new pair seems to be made out of the same magic stuff. I don't buy waterproof panniers because they are typically heavy, use a lot of material and space for the rolled up closure system, and usually lack external pockets or any pockets. Instead if it is raining I just pack things in plastic shopping bags. These are large bags but cut and shaped to provide adequate heel clearance (size 12 shoes) on my CX/commuter. They might have clearance issues on a small mountain bike frame. I like that their horizontal width is modest relative to vertical depth = lots of room for stuff but not ridiculously un-aerodynamic. This narrow profile also means you can use just one bag without seriously messing up your balance and handling. My one complaint is that the bottom attachment is the classic hook and bungie. This is fine for a modestly loaded bag on smooth roads, but if you are ripping along and hit a bump, they can eject. This has NOT happened to me yet, but I have seen it happen to friends with that system. On the other hand, I appreciate the easy on/ easy off aspect of this method and it works for my purposes.

      It took me 20 years to wear out the last set of these panniers. I'm looking forward to another 20 years with my new ones.

        Comments about Nashbar Rear Touring Panniers:

        I bought these with the hopes of commuting more to work and having the ability to carry additional items such as clothes with me. I'm not commuting as often as I like but when I do these are standard equipment every time I ride. It's nice knowing I can stop and pick something up at a local store and being able to transport it home. I can't be more happier, but perhaps a flourescent green/orange/yellow would be nice especially driving at night.

          Comments about Nashbar Rear Touring Panniers:

          I have used these bags for three months for daily commuting and occasional weekend trips. They are sizable and hold stuff securely on my bike, which is exactly what they are supposed to do. They are not fancy. They get the job done.

          Note: they are not waterproof, although they can handle a light drizzle or mist. I recommend keeping some plastic bags in them for the items you really want to keep dry.

            Practical, basic panniers for commuting

              Comments about Nashbar Rear Touring Panniers:

              I like these. They clip on and off really easy so you can just fill them with daily carry and go when you reach your destination. They don't slip around, and my feet don't kick into them. Worksmanship seems credible. I don't think they're indestructible, but they seem fine for a budget pair. They also hold a lot for their weight. I can keep fragile items like my phone or fresh fruit in the top pocket, eggs in a side pocket, heavy stuff on the bottom of the main pockets. Just watch out for the rain! The top pocket is NOT water proof and electronics or paper goods could get wrecked in there.

              Liking it much better than the milk crate I was using before.

                        These panniers are great. I have them attached to a Topeak Explorer Disc rack and they fit all my clothes and then some. I have done hard sprints and climbs and the bags have not budged. They are listed as water resistant and not waterproof but I have been caught in one shower and did not notice any moisture inside the bag. Two gripes: The metal mounting tabs can unbend themselves which causes a little play in the connection and the buckles could have been sewed a bit further to the edges as the wind can pick up the cover flap fairly easily. I have yet to see the cover come off, but I can see the cover flapping when I look back. The fabric sewed on the back pocket is also a big plus as I can hang an extra tail light on the left side to give drivers a better view of where my outside edge is. This is critical during portions of my commute when the shoulder disappears and I have to fight for road space with the cages.
