I liked riding with these saddlebag panniers. They were Ideal for my commute. The amount of space was more than enough for what I carry to work. The panniers never got on the way nor did they unbalance my ride.
What Rocks: I liked the looks and the slim profile. Being a commuter, I’m not too concerned with aerodynamics, but I liked that the panniers didn’t stick out like others do. The material of the panniers is very sturdy, never had an issue with the quality of the panniers. I also liked the reflective trim, an added bonus for those upcoming dark commutes.
Bummer: Although the panniers are easy to carry, walking in the office with the two bags was somewhat inconvenient.
My Two Cents: For $50 dollars, these panniers are a good investment. I highly recommend them to commuters that carry a change of clothes and other goodies. They are also useful for light errands and the occasional bike weekend get-away.
