The Dirtsack Longranger Pro soft panniers are constructed using heavy denier ballistic fabrics for extreme durability, with reinforced side walls and base for added strength and shape-retention. All seams are bound on the inside and stress points are reinforced. The plush interior lining is foam insulated.
New for 2018 the design now features roll top main compartments with 100% Waterproof Drybag Inserts. There are also four exterior zip pockets and two water bottle pockets.Quick-release buckles allow for easy mounting and dismounting, and the multiple securing straps ensure a zero-displacement fit.Other features include 3M high-visibility reflective tape on three sides for safe low-light/night riding. The main compartments are completely waterproof (when the dry bag inner is used) and the panniers are also supplied with high visibility 100% waterproof over covers to make sure that the exterior pocket contents stay bone dry as well. The raincovers fit into stow away pockets when not in use. Dimensions (per side): 38cm x 30cm x 20cm Capacity (per side): 24 litresFitting bikes without using pannier racks:The Longrangers will fit many bikes without having to use a pannier rack so you can keep your bike narrow for filtering and the weight close to the centre. Take care with the hot exhaust, you may need to use a heat shield to keep the pannier and/or straps from touching any part of the exhaust. Bikes that should be OK without a rack include: G650GS690 EnduroXT660Z Ténéré640 Enduro / 640 AdventureXT660950SE990 Adventure990 SMTXRV 650 Africa TwinDR 650KLR 650Royal EnfieldFor bikes that don't have much bodywork at the rear then racks are recommended, eg Tiger XC, F800GS etc. You may also need to use additional straps depending upon the overall width but they can be secured to almost all racks.I've used these myself on a 990 Adventure and they will fit onto the KTM/touratech racks but I prefer to use them without to keep it light and narrow. They're also much quicker to remove, just four clips and you can lift them off and into your tent or hotel.
