A great addition to the bike,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Expandable Bicycle Pannier Saddle Bag with Raincover (Misc.)
I ordered two of these, one for me and one for my wife. After an initial delivery problem (they were returned to Tooltime, who re-sent then and they arrived the next day, excellent service) I have had a quick look and they seem to be ideal for the job.
The material is a light-weight man-made fabric, much like cheaper holdalls are made from, but I don't see that being a major problem and it keeps the weight down. The top has an expanding seam which allows for more stuff to be carried, while the expanding side panniers look like they'll take quite a lot of stuff too - I think you could easily fit enough for an overnight stay or even short break in them. They should also take quite a bit of grocery shopping - probably a small plastic bag's worth of goods on each side, although their shape means you'll probably need to repack.
In general I think they're good value, the integral rain cover should also come in handy.
