Sopris Standard Panniers

The ideal panniers for hauling large, bulky items.
#2 Sopris Llama Pack Systems come complete with Standard Panniers and start as low as $499.00 (with the Lumbar Saddle) – one price for everything you need to take your llama on the trail.
These Amish-sewn panniers are made of heavy-duty 1680 denier nylon, which is extremely resistant to abrasion. Each pannier is a single compartment, ideal for hauling large bulky items when convenient access is not a priority; the durable nylon draw string top keeps awkward items securely inside the pannier and the easy-to-adjust 1" Quick-Release buckles make lid closure a snap.
The pannier stabilizing bar also acts as a carrying handle and provides a weighing point, but can also be removed when the panniers are used with a frame-type pack saddle (strong metal thumb-press cam buckles easily adjust the horn straps).
Two Accessory Straps sewn on each pannier lid allow sleeping bags or other top loads to be tied length-wise on top of the loaded pannier, while the pannier lid itself can be used to secure top loads such as tent poles, sleeping bags, pads, etc. Two solid brass rings toward the bottom of each pannier are used to connect to the Sopris Rain Cover.
Two detachable vertical compression straps run from one pannier bottom, up and over the top of both panniers (and top load) to the bottom of the opposite pannier. These compression straps compress the load and pull it in to the center of gravity. Two detachable stabilizing straps near the bottom of each pannier connect to the front and rear cinches to keep the pannier stable when the llama jumps. Finally, two 1" webbing straps are sewn around each pannier to provide additional support and durability.
If you are packing more than one llama, we suggest a combination of standard and deluxe pannier sets.
