The Knog may be the most style conscious of the panniers we’ve tested, with discreet yet distinct design touches, but it’s not without substance. Its main compartment is large enough to take clothes, tools and food, plus there’s a padded pouch for a laptop and/or documents, with another mesh pouch on top of that for good measure.
Whatever you’re carrying is kept out of the elements with the same clip-close and roll-down cover and another dual-clip, over-the-top flap that almost completely covers the bag’s front.
The rack mounting is a simpler version of the one found on the CarraDry and Yamaska panniers but is no less sturdy, and, if anything, is a little harder to get off. Off-the-bike portability is catered for by a wide, woven detachable shoulder strap; the only issue being that the rack mounts dig into your hips.
The price quoted is for a single pannier, though, rather than a pair, making the Knog a particicularly expensive option.
