Berthoud Panniers


Berthoud panniers combine water-resistant durability with handcrafted style. They’ve been around for decades, and they seem to last forever. The laces on the larger models allow adjusting the volume, from a quick overnight trip to a round-the-world tour.

The traditional mounting system, with leather straps and a steel spring, tensions the panniers, so they don’t rattle. The straps fit on (almost) any rack. The buckles make the panniers are harder to remove, which acts as a theft deterrent when you leave the bike unattended: You don’t want to carry all your bags every time you visit a cathedral or museum!

We offer these special models in the classic blue-gray color and in black-on-black. Both colors develop a nice patina over decades of use.

Sold as pairs.

Pro Tip: We use the largest GB 372 and usually carry our entire load on a front low-rider for the best handling and performance.
