Moonboxes are tough ~ waterproof ~ detachable bicycle panniers made from recyclable corrugated plastic.  Named for their half-moon shape, these hard-shell panniers are unique in style and available in a variety of bold colors.  Originally designed by Mark Marsee in 2003 as a D.I.Y. bike box made from recycled election signs, they have now been used extensively by many people on cross country bicycle trips and cross town errand running. Util is now offering a polished version in a variety of sizes at a competitive price.
