I have a pair of Louis Garneau Beta Stream panniers, I love them and they're great for carrying stuff, but unfortunately they seem to blow supermarket baggers' minds, and I always have to repack them because they never load them up to full capacity. I'm looking for a good square shopper-style set of panniers. They need to be somewhat waterproof, since I live in Oregon, and I'm looking to spend ~$100. I was thinking about the Typhoon panniers from Axiom: http://www.amazon.com/Axiom-Typhoon-...720385&sr=1-21
At first I was thinking of Banjo Bros. shopping panniers, but those have those non-latching hooks on them, which are what my Biria shopping panniers have, and I'm bad enough at dodging potholes that I don't want to risk it.
There's also these: http://www.niagaracycle.com/product_...ucts_id=800041
I could just get a pair.
How are they at standing up by themselves/in a bag carousel? Are they square enough for grocery clerks to deal with? I regularly buy half-gallons of goat milk in glass jugs, so they need to be sturdy.
Any other pannier suggestions?
