For shopping and adventures,
This review is from: Raleigh Triple Pannier (Sports)
My video shows unpackaging from amazon and fitting panniers to bike.
It has been secure enough for strong winds and deters amateur thievery. A little dissappointed about the size of the top bag but grateful for the loops in each corner nonetheless. A sleeping bag on top of the pannier would seem to be preferred.
So far very pleased with my purchase and as you can see my favourite single shopping iten does just about fit. Those bottle holders do take a 1.25 bottle of cola very snugly.

Terrrific, thanks W.Rodick. If you're a cyclist who regularly uses, and is fairly dependent on panniers, I'm sure you'll appreciate this video as much as me.I'm just about to change my present panniers whose zips have broken - a perennial problem with any item that uses this fastening method and so I suspect that these zips aren't necessarily any better( hopefully I'll be proved wrong although I wish somebody could invent better zips or even better repairable zips)).If only there was a video for all other practical items - a great idea.
Important here to see what the panniers actually look like, material type, straps and buckles and overall capacity, for example, straps, not velcro, are useful as a thief deterent, I wanted to see the height of the top pannier because I can only attach my back light to a position behind it on the rack and I now know I'm not the only one who has problems positioning excess straps - although better excess than deficiency.

Thanks for video. I'm glad I watched it before purchasing. I have arthritis in the fingers of my left hand and watching someone without my disability having to thread through and pull all those straps on made me realise how difficult it would be for me. It was also obvious the type of items I would want to put in it wouldn't fit.
Thanks again for preventing me purchasing an item which would be entirely unsuitable for me.

Thanks for the video. No one seems to help us out on-line with their products fittings info. I can now gauge whether I want a set of these panniers from the physical size,suitability and attachment process. I'd hope that the retailer/manufacturer will be tipping something your way for doing their job for them,as I've yet to find any of these panniers in any shop that I've visited ( and I live near Oxford where bikes and bike shops are everywhere ).

Thank you for your kind comment. Glad I could help someone decide to buy or not to buy. As for 'tipping something your way,' phew, just as if. My panniers are still intact after much use.
I still think my video review of a pasta machine is my best video.Imperia Italian Double Cutter Pasta Machine SP150.
