Carradice CarraDry Rear Panniers review

Carradice have long been associated with their super tough, old school Cotton Duck panniers. This year, they've joined the seam-sealed fold - though the Cotton Ducks are still available. Construction is tough PVC - similar to Ortlieb's Classic. There's one big, main compartment with a small, zippered pouch, a drawstring skirt and a lid over the top, along with a small mesh pocket strapped to the outside - good for drying pants and socks! The back uses Carradice's traditional, replaceable mounts. They ratchet in to the rack and are a bit stiff to use but very solid, and can be moved along aluminium rails. A stabilising clip also slides backwards and forwards, with a plastic bumper to protect from any skewer damage. The back panel is reinforced with a light but stiff corrugated plastic. However, one of the reflective logos has peeled off.
