help! desperately seeking panniers in Hanoi

Hi,
We're in Hanoi, Vietnam at the moment, planning to cycle to Ho Chi Minh. Unfortunately didn't plan quite enough, and are here without panniers. We desperately need them, as our rucksacks are too heavy.
Does anyone know anywhere we can pick up some panniers (new or 2nd hand) in or around Hanoi?
Any help would be great!
cheers,
Matt & Ruth

Arkel will ship anywhere in the World. They mentioned to me once that they have shipped to Viet Nam. They are also very high quality panniers. Their shipping rates are reasonable and they have excellent customer service. Although they are not cheap they will last a very long time. They also have a lifetime guarentee.

I would think you could have a set made in a couple days for very little money.


Enjoy

If you check around you can probably find patterns on the web.
