One stylish waterproof cycle pannier released this 2011 is the Canyon Prestige. Made with a rubberized pannier fabric, the Canyon Prestige features sturdy construction with welded seams. Along with the roll-top closure are two straps to optimize comfort.

Adding to the good parts of the pannier are the detachable carry straps and thick rubber grab handles. On the other hand, though the pannier is aesthetically good, it has some downsides. Unlike most panniers, the Canyon Prestige does not have any inner or outer pockets, organizer pouches or internal dividers.
