    Nashbar Action Pack n Pannier on sale!

    If anyone is interested this pannier is on sale for 34.99 from 74.99. I've been eyeing it for a while but decided to go ahead and buy it at this price.

    Skip it, it's totally rubbish. It's simply a drybag stuffed into a backpack holder, which in turn has a zip on back plate with two hooks. I can honestly say that it's the worst designed product I've ever bought. I gave mine away to a workman who arrived at my house by bike.

    I read some reviews..some good some bad. Exactly why I haven't bought it yet but at this price I'm going for it. I sometimes incorporate the city bus in my commutes and can't leave the pannier on the bike. I'm always fumbling trying to carry my pannier (or god forbid two) in one hand, my bus pass in the other. I can just throw this on my back.

    You'll be fumbling with the zippered backplate (Which either stays attached to your rack or takes up a bunch of room inside the backpack) instead. It's not a quick 'on and off pannier into a backpack' pannier.

    I will probably consider them when they hit the 72% off page. Be patient, they will.... Right after that, they will be back up to full price for a short while.

    Also watch out for dreaded "heelstrike". It recommends an extra-large rack for use.

    I completely disagree with the negative reviews of this product. I have two of these bags and i think they are great. The only flaw is the heal strike and that there are not two mirrored versions. All of my buckles and stitching has lasted a few years now. I love that there are so many ways to adjust straps to hold the any size load down tightly.

    What do you do with the back plate when you want to use it as a back pack?

    I'm thinking this might work out perfect for what I need. I am just looking for a waterproof panier for winter commuting. I am currently using the topeak trunk bag with zip down panniers but it is not very water resistant at all. For the price I think this would work well for me, or should I be looking along different lines?

    Add me as another who bought one of these and gave it away shortly thereafter.
