PSA: Ortlieb 25% off @ REI sale

Just thought I'd share:

Ortlieb went up this fall, but REI has about 1/2 their line for 25% off. I just got my Back Roller Classic panniers for $123/set. They even have all the colors. Couldn't find anyone that cheap.

Yea, I saw this. Unfortunately they only have the sport packer in red. I can't deal with red.

I don't own panniers yet, but if I was to get a set are the Backroller the way to go?? How about the Sport Packers listed there.

If this is a good deal, I'd like to get a set.

Sjauch, I've ridden every kind of pannier and saddlebag: carradice, jandd, cannondale, arkel... I SWEAR to you that you won't regret buying these ortliebs. I prefer the "packer" to the "roller" kind, but there's nothing else close to either one.

They've also got Pearl Izumi arm and leg warmers for 25% off, along with a bunch of other cycling and non-cycling stuff, and the 20% off coupon for members.

Novara stuff is also 25% off, don't knock it until you try it. They pay me to say that but I really believe it. If your store doesn't have the bag you're looking for just order them online and have them shipped to the store for free.

Yes - I'm a fan of my Novara Transfer panniers. They've done me well so far.

Thanks. Hmm, I think you just blew $150 or so for me. My Nashbar ATBs that I paid $24 for 3 years ago are holding up OK but it gets tiring putting plastic bags inside for everything whenever it rains.

They can be adjusted to fit pretty much any rack.
I have the Backroller (in black - would love to have them in white) and have used (one of) them every day during the last year. I'm very happy with them - this was one of the best purchases I made last year. I wish I had gone for a Tubus rack instead of the aluminum rack I have now.

I'm thinking of getting the Velocity backpack since the regular messenger pack is too big for what I need.

Does anyone know what the best color is for being seen at night? I'm guessing that yellow is the best unless the silver is some kind of reflective material.

I have the front packers and back packers plus. I must say for the rear, packer plus is a, uh, plus. You can strap stuff on the top and the extra pockets are great. I don't need extra straps and pockets for the front, and frankly, I don't think I'd like to keep the front nice and neat.

Y'all got me in trouble with the CFO...I just blew a bit over $200 for a set in Yellow/Black front and rears in the rollers for my Expedition bike. Good thing I had a dividend to apply to it or it would have broke the bank.
