if so, any good? looking at the 15 litre ones as a cheaper alternative to ortliebs for front mounting. will be used for long distance touring.

    They look interesting - Thanks for the heads-up. The Rixen Kaul fittings are the industry standard and so at least as good as Ortlieb's own brand. Looking at a review of the rear panniers they se very light - which ism't necessarily a bad thing but it *could* also mean that, in the very long term, they are less durable than Ortliebs/Vaudes.
  • In case anyones interested, i have just bought a set of arc 15s and am very impressed! material is not as durable feeling as ortliebs, but nonetheless the design and build quality is top notch!
