Classic Garment Pannier Story

The Classic Garment Pannier Story

In the corporate locker room bike gear was the topic of conversation.

In the brand’s infancy, Two Wheel Gear President Reid Hemsing shaped the prototype of the Classic 2.0 Garment Pannier through a series of 'bare all' locker room discussions with corporate execs. This group of 'old school' bike commuters provided feedback that helped turn the Classic into an evolutionary product for bike commuters. These comedic episodes were inspired by those early experiences.

Two Wheel Gear - Classic Garment Pannier

The Classic 2.0 Garment Pannier is the hybrid pannier and travel garment bag designed to keep your clothes protected and wrinkle-free on the commute. It safely stashes a 17" laptop, attaches to all standard bike racks and is carry-on friendly. The variety of compartments organizes everything you need to shower, change and have a productive day at the office. It was designed as a solution for the business bike commuter but has also found its way into the overhead bins on flights around the world.

"A Bay Street Commuter's best friend."

In the past, biking to work had its barriers. With new attention on bike infrastructure and rewarding healthy lifestyles, cycling to work has never been easier. Breeze through traffic on the bike paths, ditch the sweaty load on your back and forget about the wrinkled work shirt.

Two Wheel Gear - Classic Garment Pannier


The Classic 2.0 Garment Pannier is designed to help you commute smart and be prepared for the office. Hangs 3-5 garments for daily commuting or longer travel. Pack everything you need: lunch, shoes, shower gear, laptop, files, tools and accessories. 


Works with all standard bike racks. The Vario mounting clips adjust 6-16 mm for different rack sizes. The Centre Lock (red) prevents any risk of cargo loss from hopping curbs or speed bumps. The lower catch slides behind the side rails to keep the pannier stable and secure to the side of the rack.
