I have been using Lone Peak panniers for years now for road touring. In fact, between my kids and I, we have four sets. They are well made, durable, are made entirely in the U.S.A., and after years of use are hardly worn at all. So, when I saw that Lone Peak was making a large seat pack for bikepacking, I thought I would give it a try. In the past, I was convinced that a seat pack wouldn’t work on my medium Pugsley because I have pretty short legs, thus not much seat post and wheel clearance room. But when Bullet bought a large seat pack, I tried it out, and to my surprise it fit, albeit with only about an inch of clearance.
With an upcoming bikepacking trip on Kokopelli’s Trail I really wanted to ditch the rear rack to save some weight, so in comes the Lone Peak Expedition Seat Pack. I have not used it yet, so this is just a quick look at the features. After our Kokopelli’s trip I will do a more detailed review.
