Surly Petite Porteur House Front Pannier Bag (Black)
🚚 Delivery Estimated between 10 December and 15 December.
Cut from the rear end of the short loin just like its larger relative, the Petite Porteur House Bag is a commuting and light-camping combo platter loaded with outsized versatility. Secured with a simple system of three adjustable straps, it’s designed to pair with the Surly 8-Pack Rack and similar porteur-style front racks.
We’ve beefed up the body with a little more structure to keep your gear from banging around, plus you can compress or extend the roll top depending on the dimensions of your bundle. Three external pockets provide storage for tools and trail souvenirs, and we’ve included one accessory bungee and two One-Wrap® straps to encourage creative lashing solutions.

I bought this to replace my front basket, and I like it better because:
• it replaces the need for multiple bags to put into my basket
• it doesn't squish stuff that's soft like fruit
• I can take it off if I want
This is a little big for my Velo Orange constructeur front rack, but the attaching system is versatile enough for it to work. It's easy to take off and put back on during rest stops; takes about a minute.
The quality of construction is very good. It is very roomy; on a typical ride I carry food, a hand pump, tools, spare tube, lock, wallet, food; and one ride to Hesarghatta, I bought back a kilo of carrots that easily fit inside. The underside has soft padding to prevent squishing, but is sturdy so it doesn't sag around the much smaller platform of my rack.
A front basket _is_ cheaper by 10x, and can accommodate whatever you throw in it but it used to be harsh on the stuff I put in, throwing it around without any protection and often dinging sensitive stuff.
