Ditto. I was looking at the Teton bags, but didn't see an option for rain covers for them either. I'm guessing these are about as waterproof as the Tetons?

Hi guys,

You are correct, they are NOT 100% waterproof and contents will need to be in waterproof stuff sacks or bags of some sort. Thanks for the questions and interest

If that's the case, are waterproof covers available for these (and the Tetons - they appear to be about the same size)?

I have ordered these new panniers from Winding roads.co.uk
Martin, the boss, provides the best customer service ever.
I'm glad you have built these panniers. They are just perfect for solo adventure travel

Hi there,
Is there any additional hardware required to mount these on Happy Trails SU racks? Also, I hate to be vain, but are there any colours other than black available? My bike is black, my gear is black, and my top box is also black so I was thinking yellow would be a nice step away from the. theme.
Cheers, Steve

Been looking at these (and the Expedition Saddle Bags) a little more closely, and got to wondering - Is the seat strap really neccessary? Is it a weight-distribution thing (especially considering that the Wolfman Pelican box / hard pannier mounting kit seems to simply holds to the rack)? Will they hold securely to the rack without the seat strap in place?

the Seat Straps are absolutely necessary as they carry about 70% of the weight. The side straps that attach the bags to the side racks carry about 30% and are used to stabilize the load and compess so the bags are as one unit.

Loving the look of these new bags!

With the release of the Monarch Pass bags, are the Tetons being discontinued?

Wolfman your web site shows these are 9 liters, instead of 19.
I like the looks of these bags but you probably cant make a zipper top totally waterproof, a cover might keep the rain out but a dump in river or mud hole won't. Keep your stuff on light weight dry bags or clear ziplocks and dont worry about the covers.

Just get a couple of dry-bags like these:
http://www.amazon.com/SealLine-Storm...MXCPN4ZX&psc=1

Or, if you want the tie-down loops, these:
http://www.amazon.com/Sea-Summit-Riv...alline+dry+bag

Each saddle bag would hold 2 of the 8-10L bags, or one 20L bag (2 10L Storm Sacks from the first link per saddle bag would probably fit best based on the dimensions).

Looking at the EX-T bags, they're not going to be 100% waterproof because of the closure system, even if the material itself is.
