The Thule Shield 25 panniers served me very well for a year, but I noticed just after a year that the external fabric is already tearing/breaking in the area where the pack is folded to close the bags. I would have thought a quality Thule product would have lasted longer that a year.

From Groceries to Bikepacking

Great panniers. Easy on easy off once set up. Waterproof. Great for bike packing or getting groceries.

Exactly what I was looking for.

Have been using these to commute to work. Works as expected. Laptop fits correctly in the sleeve. Can fit 2 pairs of shoes, change of clothes, and a lunch in both bags with room to spare. Assembly took a while to figure out - the instructions are too simplistic. Also need to keep adjusting the mount as they are sliding down the back of my bike.

Worth the purchase. Stays on bike well and bag seals extremely well. Just wish the laptop sleeve was bigger and had some padding. And that there was a small outside pocket for keys or phone for easy access. Otherwise, the bags fitted with ease onto my bike rack.

Better than the rest

I've had these bags for about two months now and have only good things to say. Great capacity, incredibly durable, and fit on just about any bike back rack. The other reviews mention that the clips don't secure right but I suspect those people just don't know how to fasten these properly. It's really easy. It's also quite nice that the outside is free of all of the extraneous buckles, straps, and decoration that you find on competing panniers.

Too expensive for what it offers

I love the look of the bag and the brand name, but that's where it really ends. The bag fell off my Bontrager bike rack during my commute to work. This was the fourth time using the bag. On the way home the same day, one of the clips had come undone but the other one was still closed. I could hear the rattle so I stopped, got off my bike and closed the lock clip. I've been afraid of the bag falling off ever since. The bag is difficult to roll and close. Then the shoulder straps have to be tucked in so I have to unroll it again after the bag has been clipped into the rack, tuck the strap in, roll and close again. If I forgot to put something into the bag, I have to unroll it and roll it back up again. Quite cumbersome. I saw the organizer inside the bag and thought I could place my 14" HP laptop in there, nope, I have to go out and get a separate laptop sleeve or the laptop rattles inside the bag. I clip a rear bike light onto the bag, but the hook is so close to the carrying strap that it's a struggle to try to turn on/off the light. Overall, I would return this bag if I could but I purchased it from a retailer outside my city and it would be a real pain to try to return it. I'm quite disappointed that Thule would keep selling such a product.
