Laplander Roll-up City Bicycle Panniers. We’re constantly seeking out new products to make our commutes more enjoyable. Recently, we came across Laplander, a two-person company in Pennsylvania who designs and hand-makes classic aesthetically pleasing bicycle bags. They’re good enough for a day of pounding gravel or descending down a mountain pass.
If you’re looking for the newest, most advanced waterproof panniers on the market then look elsewhere. Laplander sticks to the classics by using waxed duck canvas which has been proven for hundreds of years. Each piece of vegetable tanned leather used on the bags is treated for water resistance in house! They even offer a vegan version for you non-bacon eaters out there. Another nice feature is the roll-up style which keeps them out of harm’s way when not in use.
The $195 investment may seem steep at first but when you consider the amount of use they’ll get it’s an investment that will mature beautifully.
