The Mini Mountain Panniers are an indispensable favorite of tourists and commuters alike. The streamlined main compartments can be expanded by 18% by simply unzipping their gusseted lower halves. Each compartment supports a roomy, gusseted outer pocket. One of the outer pockets sports mesh panels along the sides and bottom, a handy feature that promotes air flow and allows wet clothing to air out as you ride. Both panniers are banded with a strip of 3M Scotchlite Reflective Material for increased visibility. The bags can be snapped together at their leather handles for ease in handling off the bike. The absence of compression straps ensures quick attachment of these bags with no worries about securing excess webbing. As with all Jandd panniers with our patented lock-on touring suspension system, the bags come unmounted for a custom fit to any rack, front (high or low) or rear, utilizing either set of pre-drilled holes in the rigid HDPE frame sheet.
