I have a CETMA front rack to carry odds and ends, including a bag or two of groceries. A rack mounted to the fork has many disadvantages and you have to be cautious loading it.

My pannier is a Detours Toocan. Sometimes I wish I had a bigger one, but its size is sufficient for 95% of trips. It has a tough rubber bottom that keeps the shape and allows you to set it down anywhere and it will stand. Also, the bag is fairly attractive and doesn’t send that "biker" message I don’t always want to send.
