Dimensions for panniers?

So the robotics team I run just bought some new metalworking tools, In the interest of furthering my learning and understanding, I thought I'd try my hand at making some panniers. They're going to fit on a 950 (which I don't own yet ), but I don't know about dimensions. I've done some poking around but haven't found anything that gives external measurements. I'm just trying to get an idea of what size to make 'em. Basic aluminum boxes- nothing fancy. So, if someone could send me dimensions, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks,
G

This is the perfect size for panniers, each one takes 20 cans

Cool, thanks Centerline. I'm hoping to come up with some basic plans this week, and perhaps start building them in early February. I'm trying to think of some features to include, but can't really think of anything other than tie-down loops. Maybe in integrated cage on the back of each for camp stove fuel and tent poles or something. Thoughts?

Man...I was looking on the Touratech website and couldn't find any dimensions. Granted, I was looking on the USA site, but still...
Embarassing. Anyway, I'll try to come up with some plans soon, and try to post them.

I was looking at Jesse bags, and was wondering if there's that much of an advantage to going with angled corners. It almost looks like they're designed for a greater cornering angle, but on an ADV bike, do you need it? Assuming you're not trying to hit the apex with all your gear on the back.

As jesse states in his site,the more corners in the bag,the stronger it is.Tip over on a bag of .080 aluminum,you're going to bend it.More corners does give a slight advantage.
