    Not sure if anyone is in the market for panniers, but I got a very good deal on some 40l, Ortlieb Hi Viz ones yesterday that I thought worth sharing.....

    Considerably cheaper than elsewhere, and, if you are a first-time customer, they will give you a discount code that gets another fiver off the price. So £104.99 delivered. Ordered mine yesterday, and have been informed that they are coming today, so super speedy. Oh, I had to ring to double-check that it was, indeed, a pair of panniers, and not a single. The description gives nothing away. I was assured that I have nothing to fear. A pair are on their way :smile:

    Edit: They only have a few left, so don't dally about if you need some.
    More Edit: It appears that I've had the last yellow pair. Black only until September.

    Vaude Aquaback 2 x 24ltrs here for £85 delivered (depending on colour) from Amazon.

    Seem very similar and possibly bigger as claim an extra 8ltrs capacity a pair compared to the set suggested above.

    I recently bought a pair in black. Keep watching the prices as these seem to alter daily but the cheapest ones are always around £85-86. What is the expensive colour option this week may well be the cheapest next week, pricing appears to be demand and stock driven?

    From what I can gather, Ortlieb's are the only truly waterproof panniers. That's why I looked past other brands. Not saying the Vaude's aren't, but I'm just listening to the general consensus.

    That's my take on it. I'm having a couple.

    I did have a quick peep when I was in Lidl’s. Look cracking value. Might bag some as a knock-about pair :smile:

    I bought some for my daughter - got 3 in a packet too. They are not a patch on my Orlieb's, but will be fine for infrequent use, they are even fully waterproof. The major problem is that they rely on a lightweight clip to the rack, there is no tether at the bottom, so if you get out the saddle they will flap about. Great for infrequent lightweight use though.

    Not a problem on a recumbent trike or bike, (you can't get out of the seat/deck chair).:whistle:^_^

    You can always put an elastic bungie around it after you filled it to stop it flapping.
