Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The Thule Adventure Touring Pannier is one of the many reasons I truly love Thule products.
Myself and three others went on a short four day bike tour along the Katy Trail in Missouri. I was able to take the Thule Pack 'n Pedal Tour Rack and attach two large, fully loaded, panniers without a problem. The bags are fabricated from a heavy duty material and have a hard metal backing, inside the fabric, on the side that faces the bike. On several nights we encountered heavy dew in which these bags were left outside without a problem. Also, even though the trail was composed of light gravel, sand, and dirt, no sediment made its way inside the bags.
If you are looking to go on a short or longer bike tour, I highly recommend that you purchase the large bags. Originally I purchased the small version of the bags and realized you would be lucky to fit one pair of clothes, a few water bottles, and some essentials in them. The larger bags were able to fit two pairs of...
The only reason I gave this 4 instead of 5 stars is because I did have a small but correctable problem with large Thule Pack 'n Pedal Large Adventure Touring Pannier.
The problem I had was with the 10 mm Blade Helix Hooks that are used to attach the pannier to the Pack 'n Pedal rack and were preinstalled by Thule. One of them fell off while on the way home from work. I am really surprise the pannier didn't fall off. The replacement cost of the hooks are insignificant, but they are hard to find. I ordered them off Thule web site. What they didn't carry are the bolt and lock washer that are used to attach the hook to the pannier. I had to visit a couple of hardware stores before I found the right sized bolt and washer. When I replaced the lost hook, I added a little locktite to the threads ensure there wouldn't be a repeat performance. I suppose the good thing is that I wasn't on a long ride when this problem occurred. My round trip commute is just a little under 40...
Beautiful panniers made of a great material and overall great quality. Unfortunately the hooking system is completely unreliable.
I have ordered 4 panniers (2 large and 2 small) to use on my bike—when commuting, on day trips, and on multi-day trips. The hooking system has failed on 3 out of 4 panniers. It has either detached completely (= bag fell while riding) or the plastic hooks have broken. It is just a terribly designed system.
I really wanted to use these beautiful panniers... but I eventually gave up and decided to return them. Reliability is the most basic thing!
