Basil Pannier Mirte Shopper review

From the cycling-as-a-lifestyle streets of Holland, comes this quirky handbag pannier. It fits just like a conventional pannier, with two large basic and non-adjustable clips that can be zippered away when in handbag mode. Without a stabilising arm, it's not super stable, but then again we don't imagine it's designed to be taken off road. The outer is coated polyester, which repels water - though it will certainly get wet through the zip or seams. There's a nice, satiny feel to the lining in the one, simple main compartment with reflectors on the outside. The bag has five feet and opens up well for loading and is roomy enough to fit an A4 folder. What the Basil lacks in traditional pannier features, it makes up with its unique styling. Great fun! Big, simple mount that has room for 10mm.
