What is a good brand of panniers that most tourers recommend? What is a good cargo capacity in cubic inches?
I am interested in doing some week to two week trips. I would have camping gear, food, warm clothing, rain gear, and room for souvenirs/hitchhikers. So I'm thinking in the area of 3000 cubic inches total? About 1500 cubic inches per rack.
What are the thoughts on the bargain panniers on ebay?
