Beautiful as a pannier and as a tote bag! The fun colour combination of the bag made it stylish but it was a completely functional and roomy pannier!
The zipper was a bit sticky! I would have loved a tab on the end of the zipper to hold onto as I opend it. An inner pocket would have been helpful for keys, phone or anything you may want to get a hold of quickly and lastly, a pocket on the back side of the pannier to tuck the straps of the bag into.
This is made for a rider who doesn’t want to give up fashion for function but is an avid cyclist who needs to take things with them either to work, the store or for a picnic. It is also great for someone who wants to use it as a bag, off the bike.
I love this pannier. It is an ideal size for most day rides, allowing you to carry a good amount of cargo. It’s constructed well and like how sturdy the zipper is. I had no problem loading and unloading it from my bike and the shoulder straps of the bag were comfortable. Lastly, it’s attractive I don’t feel like I’m carrying bike gear with me, but a regular tote.
