I ordered one of these but when it came I could not believe how heavy it was! Also the colours and patterns vary and the one I got was not nearly so nice as the ones I've seen advertised, both on Overstock and elsewhere. It was a dull white with nothing obvious on the outside and under the flap was an upside down dog. I don't like dogs and even so they could have least have ensured it was standing upright. The return process was really fast and efficient, but still you lose money on the whole process. Better to order something more traditional and lightweight, like these ones I got on Overstock and which I'm very happy with: http://www.overstock.com/Sports-Toys/BV-Bike-Large-Pannier-Set-for-Rear-Rack-Placement/8862049/product.html
This pannier is easy to use and I love that it's made with almost entirely recycled or upcycled materials. Mine was a blue, white, and green sign with some capital letters. Very unique and colorful. I'll probably order another one (the surprise of not knowing what design you'll get is half the fun!). The hooks used to attach the pannier to the rack are very sturdy and the pannier itself is an extremely durable material.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? The image on the site did not match up, but that's because each and every pannier is unique. I was not expecting it to look like the photo on the web.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. High quality. Well made and very unique!
I have done multiple searches for the "perfect pannier" for me. I didn't want one to trek across country rather a grocery and errand running kind. So that being said, i wanted something also that was durable easy to clean out as well look cool. These definitely make the mark as they are strong and hold tight to my bike frame. Hold a lot of groceries and don't flop down like many Panniers I looked at. I have had multiple compliments and have been using them only for a week. Fits well on my rack that is bamboo and iron. HIGHLY recommend!
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. very high quality, nice thick panels, well stitched, awesome character as no bag is the same!
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? I have not seen any
