I think these panniers are excellent value. I don't expect them to be as waterproof as more expensive models, and they're not huge, but they are well made and the ergonomics are good: the "lid" part fits snugly and I like the position of the top pocket. For shopping, commuting or lightweight touring they're ideal. The instructions say they're not suitable for off-road use, probably because the mounting system is at the budget end of the Rixen + Kaul range. The two support hooks are fine, but the central clip that stops the panniers from jumping off is a bit basic, and on a bumpy road I reckon it might come loose. With my last pair of panniers I found out the hard way what can happen when they aren't held down properly, so with these I'm going to be careful, and maybe use cable ties on bumpy roads.
Good price, and more balanced than a single bag. Very convenient.
