Highway 61 Rolltop Panniers

(2 reviews) Write a Review

The Highway 61 Panniers are made of waxed canvas, premium leather, and solid brass hardware. This unique product has a rolltop feature to allow for storage flexibility. This product is made in America at Frost River.

For years, songwriters, artists, marathoners, and sightseers have visited, and revisited, MN State Highway 61. There’s a good reason… the North Shore Scenic Highway along Lake Superior’s North Shore is beautiful!

Our Rolltop Panniers named after the iconic route make a great addition, and add plenty of cargo space to a bike. The expandable top allows you to return with more than which you left. Waxed canvas encourages rides no matter the weather. The universal fit is quick to put on and quick to take off, and will work with nearly any bike equipped with a rack, even if there's another bag on the rack (like our trunk). An internal frame sheet is included, to keep the bags off the spokes. It’s a perfect set-up for touring, cruising, bike camping, or just grabbing some groceries at the store on your way home. Wherever you’re headed, these panniers will really haul!

    Highway 61 RollTop Panniers

    Posted by Mike Galmukoff on May 19th 2019

    I think I spent 2 solid hours on the Internet trying to find the right pannier. It wasn't until I searched via, "photos only" that I finally found the Frost River product. It was like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Search engines all had directed me to cheap Chinese products, and modern stylers that did not have full top closures or were made of rubber products that do not breathe, and look like bags used on a skin diving trip. The quality of the 61 is absolute top drawer as are the materials. I couldn't be happier! High quality costs, and I'm O.K., with that! Carry on...

    Commute and touring

    Posted by Jeff on Sep 6th 2017

    I've used these bags for over a year on multiple bikes. I use them for commuting and did a 6 day bikepacking trip. They've been exposed to rain and kept my gear dry. After riding full days on dusty back roads and trails, the roll top kept the dust out as well. Planning on using these bags for years to come on my commute as well as road touring and backpacking trips. Downside is the bottom attachment strap. On a couple racks I've had to make a loop with a zip tie to have something to hook the strap to.
