I would assume they'd be serviceable though... I've used their stuff for Rock climbing... tough!


Too bad they don't list the dimensions... Might be a very adaptable tank or rear bags

Our local Fleet/Farm store has heavy-duty canvas saddle bags for horses for $20. They are the same size as motorcycle bags, but may need some sewing to take up the slack in the cross piece, as a typical horse is wider than a typical motorcycle.

Also check your local army surplus store, if you have one that actually sells cheap and doen't think it's a boutique.

Military courier pouches or bags are fairly easy to convert to soft panniers if you can figure out how to hang them clear of exhausts and wheels. Locally I've priced them at about $10-15 each for the type that look like they were designed to fit on a bike or other vehicle. Might need a few mods, but rugged looking and more compact than hard panniers.
