stylish, small, fairly functional

Like a diaper bag, this pannier aims to be stylish while also being utilitarian. I love the rubberized bottom, and the placard that covers the clips (so you can carry it around on your shoulder without gouging people). It's definitely small — I bought it to replace the Toucan pannier, which carries more than a grocery bag's worth, and this can't handle much more than a laptop, lunch and coat. Also the clips are plastic (remains to be seen how long they last), and they need to be held opened to clip onto a rack, which is a bit of a pain. Also no bottom clip, so not as stable as it can/should be. I found it a fine compromise for an everyday bag, though I wish there was something that had this bag's good points without the bad ones.
