Ariane from Ariancdesign.com recently took our Monsoon Pro Tour panniers out for a test. Right in time for the west coast wet winter welcome – I felt the use of alliteration was appropriate here to brighten a sometimes dreary topic – she had the opportunity to put some miles in with one of our top-end waterproof pannier sets. I could drone on about the technical merits of these panniers, as I have sat through the product meetings about them, but I think her take will be more interesting. If you are considering a good set of panniers, for year-round use than the Monsoon Pro Tour might be just the bags you’ve been looking for. Read her review here.
