The trunk bag is often the most versatile bag available for several reasons. Carrying capacity is only exceeded by pannier bags and considering some trunk bags have fold down panniers it’s hard to beat this bag. Most trunk bags are also partitioned to allow packing of gear more sensibly. Mesh covers provide easy access to maps and built-in water bottle holders create the opportunity to carry more fluids. Fold down panniers make this bag perfect for the commuter and weekend touring crowd. You get a lot for your money with a trunk bag and when you’re done, it goes with you. Many of these models have handles that are perfect for pulling you gear safely inside with you when you reach your destination.
