    Jandd Recumbent Day Trip Pannier ?

    Anyone have this bag? Opinions? What is fabric like? Does it stay in square shape? I'd like to see pics of the inside/pockets etc.

    I've got one on my BikeE and am very happy with it. I don't mount it like they show, though - I have it strapped at the bottom of the seat so it doesn't put so much torque on the seat. The fabric is very heavy nylon. It has a rigid nylon insert on the bottom and an aluminum bar inside to hold it's square shape. It's big enough inside to hold my helmet and some sandals along with tools, etc. The helmet is snug but fits. There is a pretty good sized pouch and a third small pouch. Zippers and all seem very sturdy. My only complaint is with the smaller pouches on the back - you can't put a lot of weight in the without them sagging a bit, but that is probably because my seat is so far back and there is very little frame under the bag for support. It's also a very minor complaint about a very good bag.

    Thanks for the info. Can you take pics of yours? on the bike, and showing the inside/pockets? I'd really like to have this bag where they show it in the pics, and then put a regular basket under it.

    my e-mail is fishcube@butler-bremer.com. You can send pics there.

    These really had my eye while I was shopping. I went with the Jandd bag because it was designed for my BikeE and I didn't want to mess around with 'near misses' at the time.
