Rainy days are a part of bikepacking and commuting alike. For the times you can't escape heading out under angry skies, Blackburn's Barrier Universal Pannier will at least provide you with a user-friendly way to stow your essentials and make sure you have a warm, dry set of clothes when you reach your destination.
Blackburn designed the roll-top pannier to be compatible with front and rear racks with a vertical compression and tie-down strap to secure your gear. Clear paneling along the sides of the bag helps you more easily locate gear, and it also allows light to shine through, creating a clever spot to store a ride light to enhance your visibility on dim, rainy days. If you're using one of Blackburn's Interlock racks, you can quickly secure the Barrier using a key and the buckle, but it works with racks made by other manufacturers as well.

Great all-around bags
Though these seem to be designed for Blackburn's locking rack system they work with any standard rack. The best extra feature is the translucent windows on the sides which can be used to place blinky lights but also let lots of light in so you can easily find socks hiding at the bottom of your bag.
