Bags: Swift Industries
After a tour around the Olympic Peninsula in 2007, the founders/designers/craftsmen of Swift industries created the Short Stack Panniers. Their idea was to create a high volume bag with plenty of pockets for stuff. These pockets would obviously alleviate the hassle of unpacking your panniers every time you need a granola bar, or pair of sox. I think Martina And Jason AKA “Goods” did a fantastic job with this one. And wouldn’t you know it! I had to get mine in the waxed canvas version, which adds that rugged “waterproof” appeal to the already tarp-lined-super-bag. All-in-all, I feel this was a great buy and I an eager to put these bags to the test on the Great Divide.
