I am a daily bike commuter, and the Ortlieb bags have absolutely exceeded my expectations. I have had the bags for over a year now, and they are still in great shape - consid…

About Bike Pannier Bags:
First, imagine me sitting on red velvet library chair, by an open fireplace, and camera slowly panning to my face. Now read:
What do I love most about bicycle pannier bags? Well, I guess you could say all of the storage. (Sips iced tea) Yeah, it would definitely be all the storage. There is so much storage in a bike pannier bag I could put a second bicycle inside. (Hearty laugh) What silly shenanigans. End scene. (Crowd boos)
On a serious note, if you're a commuter cyclist or just have separation anxiety from your house and need to constantly bring everything with you when you leave, you should get a bike pannier bag. But before I tell you about how great bicycle pannier bags are, we need to establish the fact that you should get a bicycle rack, first. The pannier bike rack will give you a place to hang up your pannier cycling bag so it won't get in the way while you cycle. Trust me, you need a pannier bike rack, I'm a fake doctor.
Now that you have a pannier bike rack, or already had a pannier bike rack, or are getting one, we can move on. Cycling pannier bags are great because they fit everything that you can't just carry in your hands while cycling. If you want, you can try carrying everything in your hands, but you probably won't get very far. So, if you want storage for extra clothes, your laptop, food, rubber chickens, and balloons, invest in a cycling pannier bag. Good thing also, is that Moosejaw carries quality waterproof pannier bags, that won't let any of your stuff get wet; just in case you get stuck in an impromptu rain storm or drive-by water gun fight.
Anyway, Moosejaw carries great bicycle pannier bags that are sure to help when you're making your daily commutes. A variety of the bike pannier bags we carry have great storage capabilities and handling, so you'll be so happy to own one. Now the only thing you have to worry about is whether you want to take 12 dozen balloon animals with you or 12 dozen pies -- I've hidden subtle clown humor throughout this post.
