Here's to something completely different! At Swift Industries you customize and design your own bicycle panniers.
The Swift Industries' Roll Top Pannier is a unique design inspired by our urban cycling communities. We've been riding year-round with the Roll Top model in the rainy Northwest, and between its roll and the adjustable flap we've found its capacity and water resistance perfect for our urban endeavors and long-distance bicycle touring.
Measurements: (15"h+12"roll) 25h"X13"wX6"d
Capacity: 46 Litres a set (plus roll)
Features: vinyl interior lining, external zip pockets, carrying handles, rear pockets, rear reflective strips, hook and cord mounting system, organizer pocket and dee rings on the non-drive-side pannier
In addition to choosing your own colors, further customize your Roll Top Panniers with: Arkel Cam-Lock Mounting Hardware, a backpack conversion, a shoulder strap, or classical Waxed Canvas Fabric
Please select your colors and features wisely! Swift Industries charges $5.00 to process order changes after a purchase has been placed.
$240 a set
“I received my Backpack Pannier from Martina last year and have used it for daily commuting and several overnight camping trips. An early tweak was made regarding the rear buckles via email. Martina was responsive and super easy to work with. On the bike, the bag is both functional and pretty. The waxed canvas holds up to as much rain you want to throw its way. Also, when off the bike, the backpack straps are smashing as an everyday bag. Swift, swift, swift!”

“I ordered a set of the Roll Top Panniers in waxed canvas about nine months ago. Since ordering my bags, I have ridden with them through Colorado rain and snow, commuting 18 miles a day. I am planning on using these same bags to ride the Kokopeli Trail from Fruita, Colorado to Moab, Utah. The biggest value to me is supporting a truly unique small business. Swift Industries' ideals are worth standing behind. I will be ordering front panniers very soon. Swift Industries is a beautiful company that makes beautiful bags. Thank you.”

Not only are my Swift Industries Roll Top Panniers custom made and beautiful looking, but they are durable and hold more gear than I could have imagined. I've owned a set of Roll Top Panniers for two years now and they have done well by me on my cycling tours. The only problem I find with Swift Industries bags is that they are too nice and make me want to get more bikes for all the different bags Martina and Co. create. Oh, and they are made in the U.S. by wonderful people, which is a very big plus.
A good addiction to have indeed.
