Ordered Wednesday evening and had them by Saturday afternoon. Got to say I’m very happy! These are just what I have been looking for. Well designed to fit most any pannier rack and comes with a very handy fitting guide. Highly recommend if you commute as much as I do.

I bought a pair of these years ago when they were known as Bikebins, and I have given them plenty of use. I like the design a great deal; probably the best bit is that when attached to my Topeak Supertourist carrier the lids provide a large, flat loading platform. The copious attachment points on the lids allow bungee cords and straps to then be used to secure bulky items that would normally not be able to be safely carried on a bicycle. This feature does not get the credit it deserves.
The panniers are indeed waterproof and secure, with the handles allowing them to be fastened to a carrier with a cable lock. They are less accommodating than fabric panniers when it comes to stuffing them with oddly-shaped objects, but that is always going to be the case with hard panniers. The other side of the same coin is the protection offered to the contents if knocked, or scraped.
When empty the panniers can make quite intrusive drumming noises, especially on poor road surfaces. When they are filled the noises disappear. Once again, this is an unavoidable consequence of their construction and not a criticism as such.
I very much like these panniers. They are super durable, and very green in their use of recycled plastic. I recommend them without reservation.

I’ve been a regular user of the older BikeBins for many years now, for everything from carrying bags of shopping home from the local market, through to keeping sensitive documents secure. Being confident that you can keep paperwork, clothing or anything else dry, no matter what the conditions, is so helpful when using a bike as your main form of transport.
The original clasps eventually wore loose, but I only needed to drop a line to Velobin to order replacements, and they couldn’t have been more helpful. The new latches match the original in design, but the material is noticeably less brittle, which makes me confident for their longevity.

Velobin for Artists! Hello – I cycle everyday and the velobin I bought a few months back from you worked a treat, specifically when transporting art materials and other supplies to keep me going during the day . The velobin is very like the kind of art bin lots of art students and professional artists use to carry around paints, brushes, pads of paper etc. I also managed to fit in a camera and tripod, coffee mug, hi vis jacket, lunch box etc

I bought one a few years go and it is brilliant. My lap top goes in it with power cable and other bits. Totally waterproof and lockable. You can add lights to it and easily attached to my bike wrack. I have added cable ties to reduce likelihood of it being stolen
Bought 2 7 months ago for my e-bike and haven,t looked back. Carry’s everything, tools, clothing, food etc with space to spare. One Velobin has been kitted out with 15 cm memory foam in the base, and carries some clothing and my slr camera and binoculars quite safely despite the bumpy roads. Service was excellent. Will certainly buy again if I need more

Really pleased with my Velobin which arrived very promptly. I mostly use my bicycle as my main form of transport so it carries all that I need and keeps it dry and safe. Also I find it so much easier to find stuff in it than when I’ve had fabric panniers.
