Detours Georgetown Dry Pannier Review

Momentum Mag reviews Detours Georgetown Dry Pannier.



The Georgetown is a slim 850 cubic inch (13.9L) waterproof pannier. It is equipped with waterproof zippers and flap. The bag secures with a roll top and Velcro fasteners and is attached to a back rack by a bottom hook on elastics, two top hooks, and a spring-loaded center clasp. Available in black only, removable shoulder strap included.


The removable shoulder strap is great if I need to take the bag with me off of the bike and an ingenious little clip helps keeps the bag securely fastened to my rack.


I wish the pannier was just a little larger. If you need to bring a spare set of clothes and/ or shoes to work you might need to use two. Also it is a bit too small to fit a 15” laptop. More reflective accents other than the small Detours tag on each side would be welcome as well.


This is a great, little all-weather pannier that carries just enough stuff to get me to work.
