5.0 out of 5 stars Certainly waterproof, 30 May 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: M-Wave Montreal Waterproof Carrierbag - Black (Sports)
I have been looking for panniers for some time; waterproof ones that is. I have searched all the usual places; compared prices; size; specification etc and these ones, for the money, seemed to suit. They are similar in material to oilskins. In this size 20L x 2, they are the equivalent to holding a carrier bag of shopping or thereabouts each. They come in a pair.

Inside, there is a detachable nylon bag (velcro) which i suppose could be used to store a wallet or purse. They are certainly waterproof as I leave mine on the bike in all weathers and they have not leaked. They clip onto the cycle rack with no problems. However, they do not lock in place or strap down to prevent would be thieves. You can get around that if you need to - i just ran a bungee cord through the straps as i have no need to carry them around free of the bike. They do have a carry strap and lugs for a longer strap ( of the holdall type) but they do not come with a strap to enable them to be thrown over the shoulder. You could just use an old holdall strap I suppose. Seems to me that they could have included a strap as they are detachable and this would make life a little easier for the user. Still, you cannot have everything I suppose. There are no additional pockets, just a bag and so if you are looking for panniers with lots of pockets, these are not the ones for you I would say.

In all, I like these panniers and they seem robustly made. For the money, I think they represent good value. Having also looked at auction sites, I was surprised just how much decent panniers cost and how much people were willing to bid on second hand ones of no real quality. There are plenty of cheap panniers about but many are not waterproof or as convenient.

Worth a look.
