The first thing we noticed about the Drylines is their durable, two-layered construction, which effectively creates a waterproof bucket inside a tough, Cordura outer. What we liked about these panniers is how easy they are to pack – they keep their shape really well, are lightly padded and have great rubber feet that add stability and durability.
The shape is deep too, so they’re good for tall bottles. There’s a big open front pocket for easy access to keys and the like, with various organisers. Reflective logos and piping are good but we’d have liked a bit more at the sides. The lid provides a sung fit, and extends down to keep things dry. Mounting is courtesy of R and K’s clip system – it’s adjustable and easy to use, with inserts available.
