    Cheap cool looking panniers... where are they?

    Don't need anything too hardcore or serious just something to carry some stuff occassionally but at the risk of being heckled I want something that looks good. Sure I can get cheap nylon but what are the good looking cheaper options?

    Not sure what you consider 'cheap' but I think this is a pretty cool option: http://www.rei.com/product/710472

    Cool looking panniers don't exist. They're like a windshield on a motorcycle...hideous, but functional, and crucial on a long trip.
    You have no excuse for driving to work
    (unless you don't have studded tires)
    (no excuse for that either)

    Yeah I guess your right... but you obviosuly haven't looked before.

    1. Axiom Dutch Shopper $120AUD
    2. Brooks Leather Panniers $320AUD
    3. Basil Kavan Natural Panniers $300AUD

    I only found the Axioms yesterday which aren't quite as nice as the others but they are more reasonably priced for the use they will get.

    Yeah, I think you have pretty much lost it once the rack is installed.

    I still haven't put a windscreen on my motorcycle and my third option bike is the only one with a rack or full fender (that is saying something- I commute in Orygun). Look and feel is worth a lot to me. Nothing like standing to power through something and feeling that back end wallow around due to the loaded rack.
