Heavy-duty canvas, adjustable to fit most bikes. External pockets. Plenty of tie-down straps. These are 1958 large packs that have been dyed black and clip together with the adjustable straps used to clip to the '58 yoke. They work brilliantly as panniers, hold loads of kit, are very durable and have loads of tie down straps. '58 pattern kit was used by the British army up to the 90s. Approx dimensions: Width: 16.5" Height: 12.5" Depth: 5" When packing the panniers, you will get at least 10-12" depth as the fabric is not rigid and the flap has a vast amount of adjustment so you can pack them out fully.

My problem had been that a topbox and big rucksack on my back was giving me a problems in crosswinds (winter 2014 was pretty blowy), So I took the topbox off and just used these plus a much smaller rucksack. I was out of work at the time and this was a much cheaper option to the Guvi low profile panniers.I figured if it didn't work out then the £45 wasn't the biggest loss.
I decided to make my own cross straps and cut off some of the surplus strapping, like the fittings on the centre of the lid, because I didn't want it looking like some pretentious Harley luggage with tassels hanging down everywhere. For me it's about utility on a budget. I put two old coolbags inside to make the contents waterproof. The pannier frame on the bike keeps the bags off the exhaust but it's a tough material that wont melt if it does accidentally brush against something (compared to nylon bags).
There's lots of small straps on the back which fitted around the guvi onetouch frame well so that the bags didn't flap around in the wind. Doing up these straps makes it take longer if you need to take them off but just bear that in mind depending on where you're going/parking. Obviously there's no locks so don't keep valuable stuff in them. I just pack them with sleeping bag and clothes for the place I'm visiting.
If you handle these a lot (like when you're first sorting out how you will fit them to the bike and making the strapping) then your hands will go slightly grey from the black dye that's used, but it just washes off. Otherwise I've not had any problems.
