Waterproof bicycle panniers $70.33/pair+tax shipped (members, with 20% off coupon) at REI outlet
I needed new (rear) bike panniers and wanted seriously waterproof ones, but at a price less than Orliebs. I found REI outlet had Seattle Sports Titan 1500 Panniers[rei.com] as a "Special buy" for $87.93. If you are a member and use the MEM2013 coupon for 20% off one item, that brings them to $70.33, with free shipping.
Reviews are positive except for some folks having problems with the attachment clips giving way. Those who encountered this say Seattle Sports replaced them promptly. Not a thrill and once mine arrive, I will try to see if I can figure out something more secure, but most panniers I've had have had some sort of attachment issue. These have good capacity (1100 cubic inches each) and are tapered front and back, which should help avoid heel strike and the tail end ticking against the spokes (which my current panniers do, causing holes and less water resistance). They also have an exterior pocket, which I find really helpful - everything in 1 big bag is a pain and having quick access to small items is helpful.
OP, excellent find and write up. I'm TUing this post and giving you rep.
But your title is a little misleading as many people shop REIOutlet who aren't members. They will only learn they cannot get the price you mention after they click on your thread. Suggest you indicate in your title that the panniers cost $87.93, but members can get the price down another 20% with an exclusive coupon code.
