Geez, That's a lot of damn duct tape. Leave it to Kent to fab something out of yard signs. It should be a bumper crop for him later this year.

I, on the other hand, went with a set of Donkey Boxxes

When I went looking for a first set of panniers I had a few criteria in mind.

Not outrageously priced
Not a cat litter container (long story - trust me you don't care)
Recycled & recyclable
Waterproof(able)
I also preferred that they be made in the USA

The Boxxes hit all of these points for and as a bonus they're made by disabled folks in the region I grew up in.

The Disabled Cyclist

You know...they sell all kinds of different colors and designs of duct tape now-a-days as well (said stroking his beard and right eyebrow raised,as if in deep thought...)...

The link isn't working for me... but not bad. In response to ralyn's comment, it's nice that they're made by disabled people, but $28 for a little box made of coroplast? No way. I'd make my own any day.

@ S
They're not "small" unless of course you consider 4 gallons a "sip".

If you have the means to heat weld large pieces of folded coroplast properly, by all means make your own, just be sure to post your results. *rolls eyes*

The Donkey Boxx is, in essence, a mail tote with a lid (The supplier makes totes for the USPS) complete with the wire reinforcement and they're every bit as durable. Sure, I suppose you could steal a mail tote, but they tend not to like that given the "Use by non-postal employees is subject to possible fine and imprisonment" warning.

And yes, $28 - the same price as the cat litter pail Bike Buckets WITHOUT hardware.
