Yours does offer a certain amount of protection between the two panels, Matthew, but I just use two of these lightweight items of bent brass...

... one on top and one on the bottom of the panels and chuck them into my bike basket; never had a problem yet; when it rains, I pull a common large supermarket plastic bag across my usually 16x12in panels. They're STG11.70 each from Cornelissen in London but you'd certainly be able to find similar in the States.
