    I have been using Ortlieb products for about 8 years now, and this was the second pair of bags that I have purchased. Anyone who has ever used these will never again go to a different one, simply because the Ortlieb bags are superior in all ways. They are rugged, totally waterproof (i ride 20 km a day to and from work and have never had something get wet in them), and clip on and come off easily. In short, after all of the junky stuff i have tried in my 40 years of cycling these are simply the best I have ever encountered.

    My bike trunk wasn’t going to cut it if I was going to start commuting. I decided I didn’t want to worry about space ever again so doubled down and bought these. They’re every bit as impressive as reviews would lead you to believe.

    The quicklock system works spectacularly well and the adjustment to avoid heel strike is perfect. The roll-up tops aren’t really as much of a bother as some people make it out to be–unclip the top and it only takes a second to pull something out. It’s not ideal for something like a phone, but I think that’s better suited to a bike trunk(my pref) or handlebar bag anyway.

    Also a nice surprise is the inner pockets. There are two little pockets, one of which has a zipper, to store smaller things like wallet, phone, etc. I didn’t see them mentioned in very many reviews. I bought both expecting to use them for my commute, but so far one has been enough. They’re huge. Between one and my trunk I can hold my lunch and a change of clothes. I want to begin carrying some gym gear too though, so I expect the second will come in handy for that.

    All in all, completely what I expected and then a bit more. I just can’t think of anything I’d improve. The backpack or messenger versions looked appealing too, but were also smaller. I wanted these to be the only panniers I would ever need and they haven’t disappointed me.

    This is my third set of panniers. I guess the third set is the charm. I commute to work via bicycle and I’m a girly girl…which is to say I pack make-up, jewelry, accessories, even high heeled boots at times. I also want to fit my lunch, and my iPad in my bags. With these panniers I can easily pack a towel, shoes, hair-dryer, iPad, make-up/toiletries bag, change of clothes, lunch…it all fits!

    The bags attach easily once adjusted. No more messing with bungee cords- which is a particular plus when I’m taking the bags off the bike when I’m on the train. I also really appreciate the fact that the bags have shoulder straps. That makes them so much easier to carry when they are off the bike. Most other panniers seem to have a small handle.

    I also enjoy riding my bike to the grocery store to smaller grocery runs. These are fantastic for that as well.

    I haven’t test the waterproof part yet- but should I get caught in some SoCal rain I am not worried about my stuff staying dry. The reflective patchs on the side are quite nice as well.

    All in all a GREAT set of large functional, easily operated panniers. Well worth the extra money. I only wish I come across these when I made my first and second purchases.
