Gift Guide 2008: Grocery Getter

People who pedal around our Up North towns deserve an extra-special holiday gift, and the Toocan utility pannier is extra-special as it gets. Stainless clips on one side easily hook on and off the bike’s back rack (sold separately). Handles and an optional padded shoulder strap make the bag a cinch to tote around while walking. There are roomy pockets inside its easy-to-clean nylon interior; a deep one on the ultra-tough weatherproof exterior, plus a waterproof rubberized bottom. Best of all, the zipper top opens extra wide, extra easily, so the average paper grocery sack slides right in. $55, River City Outpost, Manistee, 231-398-5556
