What’s good? The can­vas outer bags are sturdy, have some great de­tail­ing, and the wa­ter­proof in­ner bags are ex­actly that – wa­ter­proof. There’s eas­ily enough space in them for a mini-break’s worth of kit, and as they’re soft I can con­tort them to fit al­most any item I want to carry, in­clud­ing an open-face lid. What’s not? The way the bags fit to the bike is over com­pli­cated. There is a har­ness that se­cures to the pil­lion seat, this in it­self is easy enough to fit, it’s how the bags fit to the har­ness that’s fid­dly. The bags at­tach with lovely-look­ing S-shaped metal hooks that are at best a pain and at worst nail­break­ingly an­noy­ing. If you fit the hooks the wrong way round the bag also starts to work free from the fix­ings; this doesn’t cause a massive is­sue as there are web­bing straps an­chor­ing the bag to frame for ex­tra se­cu­rity but it doesn’t in­stil you with con­fi­dence.
