Ortlieb panniers or ...?

    No need to spend that much. I have a few cubes and bought some more to use with the ortliebs, but now don't use them. They sure aren't going to stay anything like a cube once rammed into the panniers. I find various sizes of mesh bags with tops fastened with a cord and toggle far more practical and flexible. And way cheaper.

    AmazonBasics Packing Cubes - Small, Medium, Large, and Slim (4-Piece Set), Black https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B014VBGUCA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_sT.HAb623KXFQ[/QUOTE]

    But not as cheap as Ikea.

    I have a couple of Amazon’s cubes and they are great. However my old mesh kindling bags are even better. And they are orange. I like orange.

    Switching from the Karrimor Kalahari, I thought I would miss the external pockets, but not at all. I still take drybags to avoid damp contamination when throwing in damp stuff.
    Second the idea of gaffa taping any rubbing areas on the racks.
    Remained waterproof after a vicious fight with an Alp (the Alp won) although one detached completely from the rack & did some off-piste downhilling on its own.
    Tough old things.

    Which pannier?

    Did it use the QL2 hooks where the insert goes in from the bottom?
