While we use high quality waterproof fabric such as the XPac X11 to make this bag, we designed it with an internal waterproof liner as well. The XPac fabric is waterproof on its own but water can sometime go thru the seams that are difficult to seal completely.
We could have stopped there but we chose to go a step further and line the inside of the pannier with a waterproof liner which all the seams have been taped to ensure the pannier is 100% waterproof.
The outside fabric (XPac or Cordura) will protect the liner from daily abuse. You might scratch or even tear a hole in the outside fabric, chances are the waterproof liner will remain intact.
The Signature V is equipped with our patented Cam-Lock mounting system with solid aluminum hooks that won't bend or break.
The Cam-Lock is so solid that we were able to remove the lower hook. It makes it easier to use in an urban environment.

The Signature V stands out for its large 28 L volume.
Whether you ride to work, to the park or if you stop for groceries on your way home, of items!
If you like the features of this bag but would prefer a smaller size pannier have a look at our 24 L - Signature H.
If you wish to reduce your environmental footprint, choose the sustainable X-Pac X11 material.
Its sustainably grown cotton face provides a soft, cotton feel and appearance. It is also available in a variety of rich colors!
We still offer the Cordura 1000D fabric since it is the most long-lasting material on the market.
If you wish to pass this bag to your grandchildren, choose Cordura!
Carry It Everywhere
For daily commuting use, it is essential to be able to carry your pannier off the bike easily and comfortably. That's why we designed this pannier with 3 carrying options.
These allow you to easily transport and access the pannier.
The Signature serie celebrate the talent as well as the hard work of everyone in the company!
All Signature bags include a tag signed by their proud maker.
