Ortlieb Recumbent Panniers

I borrowed a pair of these for a three week trip, they are roomy, and everything stayed good and dry. The guy I borrowed them from did a 10 month trip with them, never leaked. I bought this pair, since his set worked so well for me. I carried them on a Bacchetta with a rear universal rack, no trouble hooking them on every day. I installed two 24" extra heavy duty zipties on the back of my seat in order to put the velcro strap that holds the front of the panniers through securely above my rear wheel. Because the panniers are wide, not deep, it was easy to access my stuff during the day, without unpacking. I used the outside stretchy cord to hold my jacket or damp towels. I could also use carabiners to hold towels on them fro drying during the day. Yellow is a great color, I could see my stuff inside the pannier, which was also yellow inside.
