The Best Cycling Panniers: Jandd Mountain Pannier

I’ve always used panniers for bike touring in California, Montana, and Wyoming, but I'm beginning to wonder if a trailer is a better option. What do you suggest?

A:Another option is Jandd's Mountain Pannier ($149 per pair). I mention these because they're trim enough to fit on the front or back but still manage around 2,200 cubic inches capacity (or more if you order a larger model). Unlike Ortlied's panniers, they aren’t waterproof, but they do have a deep storm collar to block water, plus bungee straps for attaching an extra jacket or sleeping pad.
