It has huge capacity including a 17-liter main compartment and one 1.5-liter side zip pockets. A drawstring closure on top cinches over your cargo and the large overlapping lid is lined with EDF making it totally waterproof.

The Rear Touring Pannier also features alarge side pocket for phone, tools, wallet, etc., and has a tail light hanger on the side pocket.
  • 600 denier nylon is scuff, tear, rip, and puncture resistant--in a big way

    Comments about Nashbar Rear Touring Panniers:

    Took these on our second long distance tour and they held up great. They have plenty of room inside and if you expand the top straps, there is room for a backpacking sleeping bag up on top. We keep our stuff like clothes that can't get wet in plastic bags as it is not totally waterproof. Great for the price!

    Heel strikes on short wheelbase bikes

    Comments about Nashbar Rear Touring Panniers:

    Nice capacity. Nice rear zippered pockets that can hold a 32 oz. Gatorade or Powerade bottle. Uses: Touring and heavy grocery shopping.

    These replace my all-time favorite geriatric panniers bought in Norway 13 years ago. (Bike-Tec brand, that are showing signs of serious wear after heavy use, mostly grocery shopping lately.)

    Don't know if anybody wants to wait 13 years for a direct durability comparison but the Nashbar brand seem well-built so I have high hopes.

    I would suggest a rear hook vertical adjustment feature so that the panniers may be slightly angled to the rear. This would avoid heel strikes on a shorter wheelbase. For the time being I'll cover heel-prone areas with black tape.

    Problem with simultaneous mount of older Nashbar
    zippered rack pack: the velcro mount strips coincide exactly with the pannier-hook locations on the rack. My current workaround is straining the strips so I'm not confident that they'll last too long.

      So far so good. Easily mounts to mine and my wife's bikes. Haven't used it much but looks durable enough. Holds more than expected and does not move while riding even with heavy loads. Road down to the park with my son. Two gloves and bat in one side and a dozen baseballs in the other. No problems!

        This was for our tandem which travels on the back of the RV so it will be used more for shopping trips to the store than touring.

        Comments about Nashbar Rear Touring Panniers:

        The bungee cords work well but setting the hook on the bottom of the rack takes a few seconds and sometimes a second hand.

        Good value.

        Extra pockets are the right size for extras.

        Best Uses

        • Commuting/City

        Comments about Nashbar Rear Touring Panniers:

        I have written about these panniers before but Bike Nashbar didn't publish it because I gave it a low score which it deserves. The size and light weight of the bags are great and the material is water proof and reasonilbly durable. The big down side is if you carry any weight in the pack such as a gallon jug of milk it causes the pack to flex into the spokes forcing you to stop to fix the problem. Any pot holes or road roughness will cause this. Also when riding over a rough surface with a load the pack hanging hooks unbend and come off the rack as the metal they are made of is too thin. If this pack were to go into the spoke while descending a hill at high speed it would be a dangerous situation and may result in serious injury. The only purpose I could recommend these Panniers for is a light weight voluminous load over short distances on smooth roads; not for bike touring! The last time I used this pack I had a rechargeable 18V Dewalt drill in the pack and after hitting a rough patch of road it jammed into the spokes and pulled out one of the pack hangers which has no backing washer! These packs are poorly designed and have not been thoroughly tested! I plan on returning mine as soon as I can find my reciept

        Comments about Nashbar Rear Touring Panniers:

        I bought these panniers before my 1,118 mile Pacific Coast tour, and they held up splendidly. I was concerned that I was perhaps cheaping out on an important part of my touring outfit, but these panniers far exceeded my expectations. They held up great in all sorts of weather, even heavy rain (though I would recommend getting a few rain covers for extra protection!) and held all of my stuff easily. The extra pockets were great to divvy up smaller items, and the side pockets even held 1-liter Nalgene bottles. I also use them for regular cycle commuting, and find the spacious interiors great for regular trips to the grocery store. I can fit 40+ lbs. of groceries within these bags!

          Really enjoyed these, I've had packs/panniers before, but never this sturdy and easy to take on/off. I commute to work, so I have to bring a full change of clothes and tools, etc, and use only one of these if you need, excellent mounting design.

            I just started using these panniers after retiring a set of 20+ year-old Nashbar rear panniers. I'm finding you can pack a ton of goods into them. I like both the rear and top pockets. The light holder is very useful. And I like the attachment hardware: Very simple, easy to put on and take off. Looking forward to many miles and years of use with these guys.
