What customers say about the Nashbar Waterproof Front Panniers
There were only a few reviews on Amazon but plenty on the manufacturers site. Most reviewers comment on how affordable these and the rear panniers are compared to other brands and find them excellent value.
Many reviewers remarked that they are indeed waterproof as stated in the description and felt they provided sufficient storage capacity.
One reviewer who has been using them panniers for a while had this to say, “I had these packs for 10 yrs and biked toured all over the US. Replaced many small parts that broke over the years but the pack is as good as you can find for the money. I finally started getting a tear in one after 6000 miles. If you can handle small problems on the road this is the pack for you. If not, buy a pack that is twice as expensive.”
Another reviewer also has found them very durable saying “I’ve used these commuting (40 miles/day) for three years (in the wet PNW), and for a 5000-mile cross-country. They’re still going strong. They don’t match the top-of-the line waterproof panniers in features or care-free usage, but they’re perfectly functional.”
While there were no major issues with these bicycle bags a few reviewers reported minor wear and tear type problems and questioned how durable they were. However the majority of riders loved these panniers.
The Nashbar Waterproof Front Panniers are a fanastic value for the price while providing plenty of storage.
