I don't like ortlieb back roller panniers shape. they seem too big in my opinion.
has somebody of you this configuration?
is it working for short bike trips
My wife rode across the U.S. with a set of Ortlieb Packer Plus (front) on the rear rack with the mid sized Rack pack. I think you could do a 4-5 day trip OK, but if you plan on camping, the Classic Backroller would give you more flexibility. I carry the tent, stove, tools and cup/bowls and food; so she only has her clothes, sleeping bag and Thermarest. If you are camping the smaller bags might not have enough space. She now uses the full sized Packer Pus on the rear with a medium Rackpack, and carries the net book, and most of the maps.
Packer Plus front panniers
Packer Plus rear panniers
I use the Back Roller Classics, and they don't seem all that large.
