This review is from: Avenir ACB940 Waterproof Rear Pannier - Red (Sports)
These panniers seem to be what was described but I feel they are awkward to use. The first problem is the frame catches. I have a 10mm frame and the latch mechanism is difficult to engage and disengage. The lower catch is almost impossible to align to my frame and because it is difficult to engage, I don't think I will ever use it. The top of the bag is also cumbersome. It rolls or flaps over, has Velcro and push clips all performing a good environmental seal. But closing it is quite a complex routine and I cant work out what the Velcro does but make it even more awkward. The cover over also is very apt at being a good environmental seal but is really needed. Because it is large, it interferes with the upper frame clips. Overall 3 out of ten for user friendliness.
