StarStarStarStarStar Optional

by
Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

Light and folds neatly
Works!
Easy to put on
Has a light loop

Cons

Covers light in rack
Awkward to use if the panniers are not in use— it doesn’t cover just the bag well
Bag is already water resistant so this is best for downpours

Other Thoughts

I keep this in the zipped up panniers just in case and have used it once or twice. It’s fine— I’m not convinced it was worth it since the bag is so sturdy and tough. If you ride with electronics or paper in a rainy place then it’s probably more suitable.

StarStarStarStarStar BIKE PACKING PANNIER RAIN COVER

by
Ownership: two months
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Excellent pannier cover for bicycle touring! Very easy to use and store in it's own envelope up compactly. Nice quality and I highly recommend this product. Kept my "STUFF" nice and dry and my panniers clean. I'll order others as gifts to my bike packing/camping/touring friends.

Cons

For added visibility, I'd like it to be hi-viz in color or at least yellow or at least some reflective material on all sides with a reinforced 'loop' so safety flashing tail light could be easily added.

Other Thoughts

Nice product--easy to use and store.

StarStarStarStarStar Does the job

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Designed to fit Topeak trunk bag with panniers. Good water shedding ability. Elastic is (so far) tight, so cover fits bag well.

Cons

No negatives so far.

Other Thoughts

Seems to be made of better material than the ~6 year old yellow cover.

StarStarStarStarStar Works great

by
Ownership: a few weeks
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Lightweight and compact

Cons

Feels like it could tear easy... we'll see!

Other Thoughts

Fits the bag with panniers down really well.

StarStarStarStarStar I would buy another one

by
Ownership: several months
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Packs into its own pocket, small, light

Other Thoughts

I frequently ride in the rain and this cover does an excellent job of keeping the bag and its contents dry.

StarStarStarStarStar Kept everything dry in rainy Northern Ireland.

by
Ownership: several months

Pros

Lightweight and easily storable.

Cons

Need to remove to access panniers but not difficult.

StarStarStarStarStar Fits like a glove

by
Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

The cut and design of the material is spot on and easy to deploy. I have used the cover twice for pop up showers and it has kept my gear dry.

I highly recommend tossing this in the trunk bag regardless of the length of tour planned.

Cons

So far I have no real complaint but I would highly recommend allowing it to dry before stowing it away. There is always a possibility for mold or mildew to grow so take the time to let it dry!

StarStarStarStarStar Good rain cover

by
Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Easy to put on, works well in moderate rain. Stores nicely.

Cons

Will not keep everything dry in heavy rain but I don't think any cover could.

Other Thoughts

Works adequately, easy to store and carry.
