Custom pannier maker?

Post by pebble » Sep 22 2019 5:51pm

I'm looking for a pannier that can fit a 16"x12"x1" briefcase (In case you're curious, that's for 240w solar panels, giving me a 2.5 hour charge time in ideal conditions).

So far, cannot find a pannier that meets these dimensional requirements.

Anyone know a place that will do custom made panniers for me?
Ideally something using a durable 100% waterproof material

Any alterations store will sew you up some nice pannier bags to your exact specifications. Hit up a fabric store in your area and find some water-proof materials.

I use the Ortlieb Office Bag for commuting. It is 15.7"w x 11.8"h x 6.7"d. However, the top rolls and the sides are flexible, so your briefcase should fit. I usually carry two laptops and have stuffed it pretty full when I got Amazon deliveries to my work that I had to get home. It is waterproof and I haven't had it leak in the rain.
