I decided that after five years of biking awkwardly through the city with various bags
across my shoulders, it was time to get a bike pannier.
So I took a trip to Mountain Equipment Co op.
But, while their bags are all high quality and functional, they were really nothing special aesthetically.
The idea of owning an ugly bag was bothering me so I decided to make one myself
out of black industrial felt, cotton canvas lining, brass buckle and leather straps.
