2.0 out of 5 stars Good waterproof bag but very poor clips, 29 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Avenir ACB940 Waterproof Rear Pannier - Red (Sports)
I bought 2 of these for a 3 weeks bike tour around Scotland - the material they're made of is really good (same as Ortlieb) and REALLY 100% waterproof + the idea of having a top to the bag to close it is good as no water at all can go in... the only MAJOR problem is that the clip fastening system is very poor... Not very easy to put on, a real fight to take them off... They don't stay really clipped so I had to fasten the bags with a strap all the time + after not even 2 weeks one of the top clip broke and so I had to unscrew the bottom one to put it at the top in order to still be able to use it... I can tell you that after having more than half of my team with Ortlieb pannier I would DEFINITELY go for that! Don't hesitate, don't try to save £30, Ortlieb is for life, their clip system is SO good, easy etc. As for myself I didn't go for Otlieb because I thought it was £89 for one bag only but it is actually £89 for two so go for them!!!! (I now sent back my first broken one but while being repaired the second bag broke as well... Just went for Ortlieb!)

As a conclusion: would be great panniers if they had the same clip system as Ortlieb... Unfortunately they don't so AVOID them!
