Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Avenir ACB932 Triple Pannier Deluxe - Black (Sports)
I spend way to much time researching products before I buy. My pannier purchase was not the exception. I need to carry clothes, shoes, laptop, towel, lunch, lock, tools, water, etc. with me to the gym and to work everyday. I shower at work so I need to be able to carry these items from my bike into work and then back to my bike when I leave. This pannier is perfect for this. The detachable back pack is great for carrying my clothes and my collapsible lunch bag fits in one saddle and my towel in the other. The small pockets are great for tools, sunglasses, energy bars, spare batteries, and my garage door fob. The backpack is easy to zip on and unzip off the bike and has a handle on the top as well as straps. The backpack has enough room for shoes, pants, shirt, and toiletries. The fabric is robust and the zippers are sealed. I can't say if this pannier is water proof as I haven't rode in a good rain yet but the design is obviously water resistant. The pannier has plastic clips that clip to the rack and then straps that strap it on. This is my only complaint. The plastic clips don't hold solid to my rack as the diameter of my rack is too large for the clips, so if the straps loosen up a bit (and they will) then the bag can jump off the clips over bumps. This isn't really noticeable while riding but for me it is a nuisance. Keeping the straps good and tight will eliminate this problem but a better clip design would be the only improvement that I can think of for this product. Oh yeah, the price was fantastic compared to other bags.
