Altura Dryline panniers

Postby robing » 21 Aug 2017, 10:19pm

I just bought some new ones - 2x16l - same as the old ones but have found they are definitely smaller and also the straps are lower and don't have so much slack so you can't close them if you fill them too much. Shame as the waterproof lining seems to have improved. Will send them back and go back to the old ones with new rubble bag liners!

Or buy some better designed bags that don't need waterproof linings!
Convention? what's that then?
