I've started my summer bike commute to work and I'm in the market for a new bike basket (my sweet wicker one having weathered the winter and decidedly not survived) but in my search for the perfect basket, I keep coming across uber hip bike panniers. Now, I like my basket so I can throw in a purse and camera and cell phone and spare shoes and water bottle, but am thinking about some additional storage options in the form of panniers. These are cool, via amazon, but I also keep seeing diy style ones made of old army surplus packs and I'm totally on board with that style. Plus who doesn't love a trip to the army surplus store?
