Can't comment on those panniers, but I have bought some NOS parts from that seller, and they are very good. Quick shipping (which you pay for), and the items I've purchased have been great.

Wow, I've had Crosstowns on my commuter for more than 2,000 miles, and they've been really great. Mine are the 26x1.75 models.

Maybe REI got a bad batch?
