|Just curious who makes a good set of reasonably priced panniers....Performance Bike (as much as I dislike that company) has theirs on sale right now, anyone have any experience with that brand? Thanks.|
|Good quality AND inexpensive hard to find in Panniers.||Scot_Gore|

|From Australia, the Wilderness Equipment stuff is very very good - expedition quality and the new models are of excellent design. WE uses a coredux - a poly-cotton canvas - which is tough and water-proof, and all their bags come with totally water-proof nylon inner sleeves.
Otherwise the Ortlieb range is excellent. It seems to me that the Vaude gear is a cheaper imitation of the Ortliebs - both from Germany.
Carradice is popular in Britain - they have a big range of traditional (old-skool) gear and a range of newer designs.
All of this readily available on-line.
Trek, Tubus and Blackburn racks all good for 1st world touring.

|I've been using Performance panniers for a while and they are great. The price is not too exorbitant either. But if you want to do some comparison and read some reviews here is a good place: |

|For some really good stuff try Ortlieb from Germany
or, how about good ole Bruce Gordon,
You can't go wrong with either of these.

|I've had a pair of Lone Peaks for a number of months now and have been very satisfied with the price, the features, and the general quality of the construction. I particularly like the clip-on fasteners.
The Performance Transit-Pros were a good price, but I wore them out in a year of daily commuting.
