It's pretty bold to proclaim your bag line "chic," but I think Gocia and Maciek of Bike Belle back up that claim sufficiently with their panniers tailored for both business and pleasure. In fact, I'd say it's more than chic for a lady to be able to buy a pannier that also functions as a purse which leaves her some cash to carry in that purse. Loeffler Randall's Rider satchel, on the other hand, costs around $500 and can't carry a 15-inch laptop. Their Mira line of panniers also accomodates the gentleman seeking a stylish bag with a model called The Elston. I'm quite fond of the The Au Lait myself (all three styles are pictured below).
|The radiant orchid of The Swing Velvet is a great pop of color for any outfit unless you decide to wear head-to-toe schoolbus yellow one day. And why would you do that to yourself?|
|I don't think this bag is as pink as it appears here. I think it is a neutral with an eye-catching faux ostrich texture that prevents it from being a boring beige bag.|
|Classic, classic, classic.|
I'm shocked that there are still bags available at the early bird price ($62.50) with less than three days left in the Indiegogo campaign. This is another one of those instances where I'm surprised that funding something in Europe at an inexpensive level actually gets you a cool reward. If you need to look professional as you commute, I heartily suggest you pick one of these up.
