Great panniers

PostedJuly 30, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight
Good simple design and easy to use. I used them for a visit to Yorkshire and they did the job fine. They are light, but have a good solid back. I used them in the rain and they were fully waterproof.

This product has a great bloodline

PostedMay 13, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
I purchased Ortlieb panniers because I wanted them to be waterproof. Ortlieb have some great reviews for all their bags and although they are expensive I am hoping they will be worth it. They arrived a few weeks back as I needed front bags for a planned trip to the Netherlands later this month with room required for carrying camping kit which I need to stay dry whatever the weather.. I have packed sleeping bag, camping mat, insulation jacket and toiletries in these front bags and am ready for the trip. All looks good but obviously I will know for certain after the trip has been completed

All I need

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great, totaly waterproof
I use a pair on the back because I like to travel light and these are a nice compact size. Can’t find a fault with them. Very well made, totally waterproof and excellent mountings, they do all I want.

Nice simple pannier bags but good quality

PostedSeptember 8, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Used these cycling round Wales and New Forest and found them simple and secure to use. Haven't used them in the rain yet as have been lucky with the weather but having used Ortlieb stuff sacks which are very similar in design I feel confident that they will be waterproof. Overall nice product which really makes me want to go cycle touring.

Top quality.. I love Ortlieb bags

PostedMay 28, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: lack of internal compartments
I already own a pair of Back Roller Plus.. only thing I can say is that i was disappointed that there was no stock left in red/black so I had to get graphite/black instead. Awesome bags for every day user, all-season commuting, expedition touring etc. Waterproof, durable and excellent mounting system make this a cut above the rest when it comes to pannier bags. I use this with a Tubus rack without issues.
Only downside is the lack of internal pockets (there;s one zipped compartment and one open compartment). I just use plastic bags to sort stuff anyway.
These are expensive, but totally worth it IMO. They'll last you years and give you plenty of enjoyment. Just get it.

Good touring addition

PostedMarch 7, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight
I bought the Front Roller Plus to fit on the front racks of an earlier model RM Birdy. These have been recommended by a few places, and after fitting them I can see why.
With some adjusting they fit pretty well with minimum free play. The material is durable and the rolltop means it keeps my stuff dry.
They sit forward enough so that my feet don't come anywhere near them while cycling - plenty of clearance.
The bags are a bit on the smaller side, but that's par for the course with a bike like mine. Great for minimalist touring, or shorter rides.
