OK folks, here is the #2 most important item in our packing experience. #1 would most certainly be the Black Thunder Saddle. When we look at panniers what are we trying to accomplish. Ease of use? Durability? Simplicity? How about low visibility?
Here at Black Thunder Gear this is what we strive for. All of the above. You may wonder why we offer only one color option. Well, more colors may be in the future but you can bet they all will be nature neutral. No one wants to see bright colors in the mountains. Keep it dull!
Simplicity, functionality and durability are our top design demands. Our panniers do not have multiple order options that confuse. These are like a chained up 1980's Ford pickup. They are tough, simple and get the job done!
Let us get under that hood. Designing products is my passion and designing unique products is my reward. These double tuff panniers have a three flap internal load securement system that locks down the goods. The two main closure buckles attach up high on the pack which eliminates loose low hanging straps. Do you need easy access to a raincoat or a on trail snack? We got it. 50/50 mesh and 1000 D pockets on each end with grommets to allow for water drainage. What about those quirky loads that just drive you crazy. You know, those loads that just don't seem to be even no matter how many times you weigh it. We have the fix! Each pannier comes with over straps that attach to the opposing pannier and allows instant load adjustment on the trail. How about those old days when a little rain would seep in from the sides of the lid. No more! Oversized flaps keep that out. Just think of them as mud flaps and the double reinforced bottom a set of chains for that old Ford.
Lastly, these babies aren't some half ass mom and pop sew jobs. You will find these are the top of the line when it comes to quality. Each and every seam is bound for durability and sewn with top quality T-69 bonded nylon thread. We don't pamper any of the outdoor products that we own. We believe it is meant to be used, so let's beat the hell out of it and see what happens . That is our standard for these panniers. Get outside and get packin'!
