what brand is this

So i bought this bike and it came with a set of panniers, but it was missing a hook from one of the bags and i have been trying to get a replacement for it. This is the logo, what brand is this? I've been trying for the last hour to find something but to no avail. any help?

I see a Trek logo that is similar.
Trek made a trunk back with panniers, but when I went to look for it two years ago, they were no longer making/selling bags. I think they had some Bontrager bags then. I wound up buying a Topeak bag, I think it was.


By the way, I doubt Trek or the other big bicycle companies actually make this kind of stuff- they probably just farm it out to the same companies that make backpacks, etc.

Got a picture of the locking system? I am sure Trek contracted with someone to manufacture the bags. Chances are good the hook and lock system came from a third party that is probably used by other brands. One well known attachment system is Klickfix, doubt it was used in your case.

This. If it's simple hooks and springs most are easily fabricated at home. That's mid - late 80's Trek logo. Had some Trek Panniers from that era, can't remember what the mounting system was.
