I am looking for feedback on pannier sizing, I just built up a Soma Double Cross, I plan on using to for my 16 mile commute to work but want to start getting involved in cycle touring.
I plan to do a few short 3-7 day tours next summer with the goal of doing a cross Canada tour in 2016 for my 40th birthday.
I wont be doing any camping so it will be mainly Credit Card touring which will cut down on the goods Ill need to carry.
I plan on using rear panniers only for my commute to work to carry work clothes lunch etc.
I have no background in panniers and looking for advise on sizing.
I have looked online at a few pannier manufactures, Ortlieb, Arkel, Lone Peak and Jandd.
I was looking at Ortliebs lowest price paniners the Back/Front Roller Classics. They are 25 litre for the front and 40 litre in the rear and wasnt too sure if there were going to be large enough for a 45-60 day tour,
I was also wondering about the quailty of the Roller Classics as they are the bottom of the Ortlieb chain of panniers.
