These panniers have never been used. I used an identical pair during my trip to Ireland & Scotland. During the flight home they were damaged by airport baggage handlers. Rather then sending them away for repair, the shop I bought them from simply replaced them for me. So, these panniers are brand-spanking-never-mounted-new.
There are 3 pieces & they can be zipped together to form a single unit (as shown), or you can use them separately. The "top" piece (that binds the 2 side panniers) can even be used as a backpack
The panniers are water resistant, but not waterproof. After a week of Irish winter I noticed that my belongings were starting to get damp, so I lined the panniers with small garbage bags to cure that.
Again, please remember these are brand new & not the ones I used on my trip.
