The Linus Market Bag is a double pannier that is secured over your bike’s back rack, along with snaps secured on the side. Made of waxed canvas with solid brass hardware, this bag is tough and can hold approximately 21 L (10.5 L on each side). Includes adjustable shoulder strap and a padlock to secure the bag to a rear rack. Available in three colors.


The waxed canvas gives this bag a rustic, timeless look that is sure to get many compliments and when you’re not using the panniers you can easily roll them up so they don’t flap in the wind.


I wish that this set of panniers was easier to secure to my rear rack.


I love the look of The Market Bag, even with lots of after-work shopping these bags keep their shape. Carrying this set of panniers around was a bit awkward and securing it to my bike with both sides filled took a long time. However, once on the bike, the flaps secured firmly with magnetic locks and firm snaps. This pannier is perfect for a city commuter looking to have a secure bag on your back rack, that’s locked and never removed.

    Love that more folks are coming out with something like this, but I really like the Timbuk2 Tandem Pannier. Easy velcro straps to attach to a rack, nice magnets to make carrying on your shoulder easy, and velcro to attach near the hub if you really need it secure. Not 100% waterproof or as big as I might want it to be, but it works really well.
