Although this item was not one of the top quality items it has met all the requirements. It holds more than enough gear for a decent day trip & although not completely waterproof plastic bags inside keep everything dry. It's also great for doing a small shopping trip & collecting odd items. e.g. Tins of beer & other "essentials". The velcro strap is a bit flimsy but if the bag is not to be removed a few cable ties secure it in place & also prevent the item from being removed without permission. I wasn't sure if the panniers expanded but they do the job very well & are large enough. Overall an excellent product well worth the money.
