Great bags!

I'm very happy with these bags. There are easy to get on and off the bike. They fold small but have a lot of potential for big loads when we go grocery shopping. I love that they are full waterproof and have little things to attach a light/reflector.

Great buy

Love this bag. Super easy to fit onto my bike .Useful size for carrying my gym gear or a few things from the shop . Easy to pack flat .

Good, but not great

This is a good little pannier, just beware that the mechanism for securing it to the bottom of your rack is just a bit of Velcro which isn’t big enough to get a secure hold on all rack shapes. It is not a problem most of the time, but I did have a washout and the pannier came off the rack.

Excellent Pannier bag

Great design and waterproof makes riding bike enjoyable. A fellow bike rider has bought the same product based on my recommendation.

Why did I wait so long

I put this pannier on my rack, after one year of commuting. I'm not as sweaty when I get home & I get home faster. Should have gotten one much, much sooner

Absolutely Awesome

I don't know what you people are talking about. Did you stab a few holes in them with a knife and then force a garden hose in there or something? I took 2 of these panniers on a 12 day motorcycle tour of northern Vietnam in some of the most torrential rain I have ever been in and everything inside the panniers were bone dry. Sure, they needed the mud and stuff cleaned off at the end of each day (which I did in the shower BEFORE taking anything out of them) and they were brilliant. They were flexible enough to be strapped on to the side of the bike in any configuration and were ALWAYS completely dry at the end of the day. Check out the yellow ones if these are being discontinued. You people complaining about their lack of waterproofness mustvmu been riding round with them wide open as well. Fantastic buy!

Surprisingly voluminous!

It handles a 15 lb bag of kitty litter with ease.

perfect as always

I ordered the bag 2 weeks ago and on tuesday I was doing a shopping trip with them for the first time. They were super easy to put on, with a screwdriver I was able to adjust it so that it fits my bike perfectly. Even with maximum speed there is no risk for the bags to fall off the bike. I wish I could have bought the yellow one but sadly they were sold out. But as always i'm super Happy with the service and the product. Well done Decathlon

Great waterproofing, but not long lasting

Brilliant bags in the sense of space, waterproofing, ease of attaching to panniers, and price. Would highly recommend if you aren’t using them long term. Only issue I’ve had is the velcro wore away completely after only about 3 weeks of use, so the straps would get caught in my spokes and in the end I just had to cut them off. Great product in the short term, but not sure if they’re any good for long term use.

Great value

Just been to Holland for 4 days and used one of these panniers. Easy to use and decent quality for the money. Did not test how waterproof though as weather stayed dry. Used zip lock bags for clothes just in case. Now looking to buy another for longer trips.

Good bag for the price

I have been using the bag for shopping trips, and it's decently well made with good material. Quoted capacity is smaller than many panniers, and I can see this when filling it up - and folding the top over to close uses up vital space. However it can be used loosely clipped (provided it's not raining!) to get more groceries in, or a french bread sticking out the top! The clipping shut takes a little getting used to with the fold/clip which isn't initially intuitive. I haven't taken the bag out in heavy rain, but it is shower proof. Clips nice and firm to the cycle rack, and the tightness of grip can be adjusted to suit. One negative is that there is no shoulder strap. It would have been easy to have a strap supplied that clips into the clips already on the bag for closing it. For the price, very satisfied with this bag - but do bear in mind the size limitations and lack of off-bike carrying strap.

5 stars with your own improvements!

Clips on to (and off) racks with an adjustable screw fitting for 6-16mm horizontal bar size - so fits virtually any rack. The bit of string operates a hook that turns 90⁰ in the vertical plane to operate a clip that hooks under the same horizontal bar to stop the bag bouncing upwards and becoming detached. I cut a piece of closed cell foam (not water absorbent) to protect the base of the bag from damage. I added 2 rivets as another reviewer suggested to strengthen the lower velcro strap attachment to the bag. I stitched an extension to the lower velcro strap so it fixes around two of my vertical stays, not just one, to get a more secure fitting. Now a 5 star bag! Rolling the top of the bag over 3x and clipping it will make it watertight.
