Louis Garneau Transpo R-12 Panniers $59.95
Get it off your back.
Using your bike for transportation becomes much easier when you've got room for necessary gear. This includes essentials like flat repair, clothing, and security. All that adds up quickly and the last place you want it is hanging off your back. Where you do want it is in the Louis Garneau Transpo R-12 Panniers.
The Louis Garneau Transpo R-12 Panniers are designed to make your life simpler. Its storage solution gives you a place to haul essentials, and a shoulder strap along with easy removal and installation allows you to take the Transpo anywhere. An adjustable outer flap with buckles gives you a place to fasten your helmet when not riding, and also allows bulky items to be attached to the Transpo.
It is constructed from aluminum and 200D polyester for durability, and the main compartment is insulated so items stay warm or cool depending on the situation. For extra storage, there's a multi pocket that keeps tools, keys, and electronics from banging into each other, and a mini pump can be strapped to the side via hook-and-loop fasteners.
For low light safety, there is plenty of reflective piping and a tab for installing a rear light. Louis Garneau recommends its Transpo Light rear rack, but most racks will work. The Transpo R-12 Pannier measures 9 x 6 x 12 1/2 inches.

Great big rack bag
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The main compartment is well insulated and kept 6 cans of beer cold for over 20 hours. It also has a removable liner to make it easier to clean. Lots of side storage and extra pockets.
