    Hope that's for camping trips, you really don't need to take that much weight on a trail ride or race Very Happy

    Bit big me thinks, get a kriega US5 & US10, strap the US5 to your R15 rucksack (making it a 20ltr) & fit the US10 on the arse end.

    But those other bags at the bottom of the link looks good (giant loop) for £110.

    Need to carry a sleeping bag and a tarp with some food. Dont think 30 lt will be big enough for that tho neil. It will be a case of easy trails and moorland to get to the camping spots. So too big shouldnt be an issue if i can strap em down a bit. I just fancied some wilderness overnighting

    I tryed small sport bike panniers a few years ago...bloody nightmare to ride with even on flowing lanes, wolfman like joe & muffy got with tent & sleeping bag strapped to the rear fender will do the job.

    You can get sleeping bags that pack down proper small, if you spend a bit more too!

    That giant loop one looks spot on for trail riding! Better than the wolfman looking at them!
