You will be sure to love our canvas panniers! You know how it is, no matter what you are packing, like the suitcase going on vacation, you are always wishing there was just a little more room…..We here at Trailhead Supply took that idea into the shop when we built our new Big Sky series of canvas panniers. We started with heavy 25 ounce canvas and used one continuous piece so there would be no seams to tear out in the middle of nowhere. We then added US tanned latigo leather ends of the canvas pannier, which will take all the abuse you can throw at them. From rubbing those leaning trees along the trail to dragging the brush as you bush wack into that out of the way camp. These leather ends are glued, then double stitched and finally riveted at all the stress points. The lids are trimmed in chap leather and extend over the top and down the front along with two side rain flaps to help keep water out and your contents dry. Heavy US tanned harness leather is used for closing and securing your load in the canvas pannier. Just below the buckle on the strap is a brass dee ring sewed in the strap for attaching top packs or whatever. Then, two separate harness leather straps are used for hanging the pannier to your pack saddle; this allows you to access your gear if needed along the trail without having to drop your load. Another added feature on these canvas panniers is two 4 inch by 20 inch latigo wear leathers sewn on the bottom of each bag. All hardware on the canvas panniers is brass plated for not only a great look, but for years of continued use. The Big Sky Series XL Canvas Panniers measures 17 inches deep 16 inches high and 28 inches long. These canvas panniers will hold the Engel 65 quart bear resistant cooler. And for those of you saying this set of canvas panniers are too big to pack, think again they are smaller than that bale of hay you are already packing.
