Carsick Panniers Blue Cordura

Pannier bags aren’t always the most fashionable accessories for bikes. But these handmade bags, by Carsick Designs, are a bit different.

Carsick Designs was founded in Sacramento in 2007 in the hopes of making beautiful pannier bags. Shown above is the Cordura nylon set, a water resistant roll top rig with outside pockets to hold u-locks and water bottles. When not strapped to the bike, shoulder straps can be attached for easy carry. Pricing for the Cordura set is $185.

For an extra $40 they’ll make it waxed nylon, shown after the jump along with handlebar and seat bags…

The barrel bag is constructed from a single layer of waxed canvas and will strap to either the saddle or handlebars.

Bags measure 10″ x 4.5″ and they’ll be available soon in the Carsick store for $65.
