How to build your Peli Case panniers

For some great advice on how to create your own Peli Case Pannier, take a look at Clark White’s guide. Not only do Peli cases offer the protection you’d lack if you were to use a soft case, but they also offer affordability over aluminium cases.

“Another consideration that will be specific to individual needs, is that cases like Givi or BMW System cases are not square, making it very difficult to pack anything more than clothes”, Clark explains.

In his guide, Clark shows how he created his Peli Panniers and the way he combated issues that he found. He goes onto explain the numerous uses for the case whilst travelling as a pannier, including utilising it as a table when stopping for food or drink on the road. All the details of how he built his Peli pannier, complete with images, can be found in his post.
