I'm looking at purchasing my first set of panniers. I don't want to spend a fortune right off. The Sunlite Panniers (http://www.bikepartsusa.com/product_info.phtml?p=01-171399&large=1) seem to fit the bill but I am afraid they my be a little too cheap. Though I can't imagine they are any less quality than the tiny Diamondback bags a friend gave me to use.
Has anyone tried the Sunlite bags? What do you think?

Sorry, have not tried them. I have a standard bike type rack on the rear on my tadpole trike and can use normal gear. Their website sounds most sincere. It does not sound like they make their own bags. As recumbents are a lot more variable than uprights you might want to go by their store and try some on. Oh well, any excuse for a really long ride.

Did you find the manufacturers website? Where is it? I searched on Sunlite Panniers and got lots of URLs of retail sites.

I didn't want to spend a fortune on panniers either, so I finally settled on Axiom, and I couldn't be happier.
The rear set (Axiom Champlains) are the largest I've ever seen (65 liters). They're built well, come with rain covers, and compression straps.
