The Mountainsmith panniers are a nice set for the price. Well made, above average in design. If the volume listed will work for you these are the ones to buy. You could spend more and get a somewhat better pannier. These are durable, easy to mount and remove and carry all I need for short self ... Read More

    These are the perfect size for commuting - 1 bag holds a change of clothes, shoes, toiletries, a couple small towels and lunch.

    The bottom connection hook doesn't work very well and is too large for my rack (Bontrager tubular), I solved it by putting a small hook under the rack attachment screw and putting the grommet hole over the hook to attach. That works great. Also cut about 7 inches off the side straps and melted the ends with a lighter to keep them from unravelling.

    With those tweaks I'm completely happy with these bags.

    Just what I wanted for getting back and fourth to work. Plenty of room but small enough. The hooks at the bottom are a hassle and continue to fall off. Finally lost one and just hooked the grommet to the bottom of the Blackburn rack which works fine.

    The attachment strap is so long I put its grommet onto the bolt at the bottom of the rack then fasten it with a wingnut for quick removal.
    I tie the long cinch straps together to prevent them getting into the spokes.
    I'm glad my other pair of panniers aren't divided.

    These little bags will hold enough to do some light touring. But they didn't bother to design them with a heel clearance angle on the forward face of the bags, like real panniers have. Consequently, if you have moderate to big sized feet, or long crank arms, you'll have to really lengthen out your rear rack, and place the bags as far back as you possibly can. Not much thought went into designing these. But they're reasonably light, and can hold enough for a lightweight touring setup ( 1 lb sleeping bag, bivy, a few clothes, an 800ml pot, and an alcohol stove ).

You could spend more and get a somewhat better pannier. These are durable, easy to mount and remove and carry all I need for short self supported touring. Would buy again and very well may do so. Very satisfied custome. As always the order process and quick delivery are exceptional.
