      Comments about Tandem Pannier Bag 2015:

      I use this product everyday for bringing lunch, change of clothes, bike repair parts - you name it - to and from work and for joy rides around town. It configured easily to the rack I purchased, and the mostly-weatherproof shell has made it my go-to for commuting and joyriding. The shoulder strap has made it super portable, too, which has been nice.

      Comments about Tandem Pannier Bag 2015:

      I use this bag whenever I ride my bike. It's packed with gym clothes, groceries, computer, shoes, and sometimes books. I can get $60 worth of groceries in the two pouches. It resisted water well in the rain. Alas, I was run off the road one day by a bus, ended up coming off my bike, which slid across the gravelly ground for several feet. Inside this pannier was my phone, my computer, and some books. All of the contents were in perfect condition. The bag suffered a few tiny scuffs and one tiny whole. I was so impressed. My limbs did not fair half as well. This bag is durable, and reliable. My only complaint is that the strap slides off my shoulder unless I wear it cross body.

        Comments about Tandem Pannier Bag 2015:

        I recently started to bike commute to my office, it is about 7M from where I live. I was looking for a pannier where I can carry my lap top and the daily clothes I am wearing at the office. Because I live in Orlando and high temperatures force you to take a shower every day at the office, it was important for me to have enough space for the towel and other bath staff also. It has been 2 weeks already and I am complitly sutisfied with my purchase, the cost-benefit ratio of the Tandem is excellent and I'll strongly recommended for commuters that want a pannier that is not huge, so it becomes unpractical to carry-on but at the same time not so small, so you can't take all the staff you need for your daily basis life. (Work-GyM-Eat).

        These bags for great on my bike, come off quickly and hold everything I need for a day at work - laptop, lunch, other necessities.

        Due to the distance I have to travel, and the space in these bags, I think I'll be leaving clothes at work to change into. The bags themselves aren't especially heavy, but when every gram counts, like a big climb, you definitely know you've got them there.

        The logo on the flap is reflective, but more would be a good idea. Maybe the piping around the seams or some other design elements.

        All in all they are great commuting bags. Wish they were a bit bigger and more reflective, but I would recommend.

        Comments about Tandem Pannier Bag 2015:

        I begun riding to work and needed something other than a backpack to lug my clothes, laptop and lunch to work (RT 11miles). This pack is meeting my needs well. I have not ridden in the rain so cannot comment on waterproof nature.

        I like how quickly i can attach to my bike rack. I wish the velcro connecting the back to each side of the fram was a bit longer as i cannot seem to get enough velcro grip length to ensure that after the couple bumps on my ride, that the bags don't break loose. Also, once you pack the bag(s) full, the flap does not completely cover the male side of the velcro on the bag, creating a nuisance when carrying my bag from bike to locker room.

        All in all, i like the bags and they meet my needs well. I wish the velcro had just been thought out a bit more than the state when the bag has nothing in it and the bag is attached to the bike.

        Comments about Tandem Pannier Bag 2015:

        I love these panniers! I carry a lot of stuff regularly, so a messenger bag isn't always the most practical. At the same time, standard panniers can be a pain to take on and off or secure. With these, I can load 'em up, commute, and just grab and go once I get there. They're also great for groceries.

        One downside is that actually using them as a bag that you carry with your hands is awkward and often just...ugly looking? They're a very bizarre shape if you try and use them messenger bag style, and are so long that I feel completely off balance if I just carry them with the smaller handle. Other than that, though, I love them!

          Awesome panniers. The only 'con' i can think of: if there isn't much weight in the bag, it can shift around a bit. That might not occur depending on the rack you have on your bike.

          I purchased this pannier for my husband as a birthday gift, and he is thrilled with it! He needed a bag for his new commuter bike. He rides his bike to the office 2-3 times a week, and he wanted a bag with ample storage for carrying his laptop, notebooks and documents, as well as a change of socks/shoes and sundry other items. This pannier fulfills all those needs and then some!It is sturdy, but attractive. The magnets do an excellent job keeping the bag from flapping around while riding. It is easy to secure the bag to the bike's rack and easy to remove once he arrives at the office. I looked in several bike shops and online at pannier bags. This TIMBUK2 pannier is definitely superior in all respects and is well worth the cost.

          What's this all about?

          These two super-durable saddlebag pannier bags magically transform into a single shoulder bag. Thanks to built-in magnets, all traces of pannier-ness disappear, when two halves become one. A 15" laptop pocket makes every commute a beauty. And while we can't say it's "waterproof" because you can't submerge it in a pool, its fabric-backed tarpaulin fabric makes it super duper water resistant.
