I’m still very happy with the Vaude pannier I picked up earlier this year. It did live up to the promise of keeping things dry but, now we’re enjoying a season of quite warm weather, I’ve been reflecting on another strength: size. My previous pannier was well protected but quite small. This one is capacious and that means I could easily fit my coat in it when cycling to a meeting this lunchtime. I had a coat in the first place because it had been chilly this morning but, being able to fit it easily in the pannier, meant I wasn’t too hot and sticky by the time I arrived.
Rain and shine, this has been a good investment.
