Rack attack: which pannier bag is best for you?

Rack attack: which pannier bag is best for you?

We love a pannier bag: spacious, practical, streamlined. What more could you want from a bike bag? It has all the benefits of a backpack, but without the digging-in straps and sweaty back.  

In the case of BTR rack bags, you can pick a shower proof one which will help keep all your belongings dry in wet weather. Go one step further and add a reflective highvis cover to add to your visibility when out and about.

But what else is there to consider? Take a look at our rack bags below to compare features and choose the one to suit you best...

BTR Deluxe Rear Rack Pannier Bike Bag

BTR Deluxe Rack Bike Bag

Why choose this rack bag?

  • Personally I'm attracted to anything that's 'deluxe' *and* practical. It's how one should approach life (actually, it's deluxe-ness comes from the robust fabric and sturdy straps).
  • 2-way zipped lid which makes for quick access. 
  • Water resistant material for protection in rain showers (and 100% waterproof if you enrobe it in our fantastic rain cover).
  • For those of you who might like to carry extra it has bungee cords and an external pocket.
