Temptation Tuesday | The Happiest Panniers Ever!

Today we're crushing over the new Clarijs panniers. They are seriously the happiest panniers we've carried. If their bold, bright colours and patterns don't turn your head then maybe the practicality of these beauties will. 
Clarijs panniers are build to last, they have been handcrafted in the Netherlands since 1948. You really can't cycle around Amsterdam or Haarlem without seeing these panniers everywhere. I think the reason for this is two-fold; one, the colours are fun but most importantly, the they're build to last. In fact, my mother-in-law (lives in Haarlem, NL) has a black double pannier that she's been using for years and they still look great. 
    Did you know the climate in the Netherlands is very similar to that of Vancouver Island? It is for that reason Clarijs bags and panniers were built for waterproofing; the lid is equipped with rain flaps to prevent incoming rain and they are colour proof as well, which means they won't fade in the sun. To top it all off they've made these bags to be resistant to extreme heat and cold allowing for year round use. Genius!  They are also super easy to install to the back of your rack. 
    But don't take our word for it, test drive your own Clarijs bag or pannier today!
    Our unique collection of curated bags and panniers will that take you everywhere you want to go. Possibilities are limited to the imagination.
    Which Clarijs pannier is your favourite?
