Road CC

A super-tough waterproof touring pannier with rock-solid mounting system. It's an ideal touring companion, no matter how uneven the road or wet the weather, because you can trust it to keep your kit safe and dry. Water just beads and runs off the durable fabric, and you can easily wipe it clean with a damp cloth.
