Reviews Carradice CarraDry

Carradice CarraDry

Compared to the largely understated black offerings available these days, the silver CarraDry is the loudest pannier around. But while it may be the most ‘disco’ thanks to its shiny exterior, it’s also the most cavernous, with a maw capable of swallowing a 27-litre load.

Two clips and an adjustable hook attach it securely to your rack, and, as much as the buckles and straps rattle and flap, it never managed to work itself loose.

The PVC and polyester construction will keep everything you’re carrying dry, and you get a separate padded pouch for a laptop and/or paperwork. There’s also a detachable set of shoulder straps so you can wear it as a rucksack when you’re off the bike.

Being so big, it can catch your heels if you’ve got large feet, and some internal compartments to organise packing would be useful. But otherwise, this is a heavy-duty bag ideal for big loads.

Note that the price quoted is for a single rear pannier, rather than the customary pair.
