When on my last tour, I liked my Performance Panniers, except for the convenience of taking them off and putting back on my front/back racks. They attach by velco straps and hooks.
My fellow tourers said take them off every night in camp. Racoons will get into them. So put them in the vestibule of my tent. Last couple nights I said forget this. I would take food out still.
But, after taking off panier, the adjustment strap would some how, not remain in the same position, It would be too loose or tight on the rack. Why?? Take off , readjust, put on. Several times before right tension would be correct. Four panniers, my fellow cycle tourists would have completed breakfast.
Any ideas? Can I modify these panniers from the velcro straps so they are more convenient.
