    [OT] Any experience / opinion with grocery panniers ?

    I'm considering getting a grocery pannier to mount on my rear rack, and wondered if any of y'all have used them or have any opinions on the subject.

    TIA - TT

    I was on the fence between the model you posted and the Market Pannier:

    I ended up going with the Market Pannier rather than the grocery pannier because I was afraid the open top might allow items to fall out. I like these panniers a lot. I've used them every day for commuting over the last year and a half. I've also used them for grocery shopping. I find I can carry about the equivalent of one full hand basket at the grocery store.

    Edit: I mean that two of these panniers will hold the contents of one full hand basket.

    Thanks. How easily can you remove, install and carry them off the bike ?

    I've got a few different kinds and they all work well and are more durable than I had expected. No need to buy the most we expensive ones. Banjo Brothers is a good value.
