Nomada Hard Luggage
There is a lively debate on hard versus soft panniers. One of the often made statements is that hard panniers will never seal again after even the slightest fall... all we can say is they have never tried Nomada panniers! Ours have been through hell and back, have been on the receiving end of numerous hits in Pakistan and India by inconsiderate car drivers, have survived a head-on in Kyrgyzstan where the pannier took the full hit and cut through the bumper, the wing, the tyre and the rim of the car which was on the wrong side of the road, while the same pannier took a hit in Norway when a bike slammed into the back of it. In Guatemala we were sliding down the hill, backwards, became airborne and then landed on the pannier. Add to that 120,000 km of hard and everyday use without one single problem and it becomes clear these are not your average pannier. After all this they are still perfectly water and dustproof. They protected our sensitive items like laptops, hard drives with photo and video material, camera battery chargers etc. They also kept our stuff safe from thieving fingers! The workmanship in Nomada panniers is second to none, the quality of materials unrivalled and the end finish better than powder coating.
