This is the version 2 of the Backcountry Panniers. I highly recommend these for the hard core guys who take their bikes off road. My version 1's are bulletproof. The new ones even have the option of an offset pannier if you so desire.

I'll take a few pictures of mine in a week or so just to show how versatile they are. BTW they are lockable as well.

They look great. I've been eye balling this brand, though a little higher budget than i would like, it may be worth scraping up a few .ore coins and do it once.

Maybe he can test the $20 poop trowel for us too? On hard ground. So we know if you end up with a bloody hand when using the over priced trowel. They make very good gear, but some times you need a wake up call. The $1 orange plastic trowel doesn't take up much room in my pannier.

They claim they're bomb proof. Chris, do you have a stick of dynamite you can test in one? Then we can also see how good the warranty service is compared to Altrider. ;-)
No stick of dynamite, but after a few hard drops in the sharp rocks I'm sold. A hard pannier does not stand a chance against these.

How much shitting on open hard ground do you do in a year?

I live such a soft, sheltered life.

Go farther west where there is more clay in the soil. I did the bulk of my backpacking and off grid camping in OR/WA/ID. Sometimes the ground is softer, sometimes it's harder, sometimes it's rocky, sandy, etc. You gotta go when you gotta go.

And like you said, how much do you do in a year? So why would you pay $20 for a trowel you could buy for $1? On the bike, I've only needed the trowel a few times, but I was glad I had it. I don't appreciate others leaving turds on the ground, it's considered good practice to bury your poop. We are not wildlife and carry more diseases that other humans can get.

Looks like a nice design some taken from Mosko, but holy hell I thought mosko was a bit over priced until I saw those prices. I paid less for my moose racing cases.

To each their own, that must have been one hell of a sale. You can add bags to just about anywhere on the Mosko stuff except maybe the scouts which collapse smaller than these ever could. They are nice but as I said to each their own I'll stick with the Mosko stuff.

Not that I can buy them now, as they are out of stock, but are you running the full 35L on both sides? I was looking at the 25L/35L offset kit on an Outback Moto X Frame. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Am I wrong but isn't the x frame symmetrical? So if that's the case I would but the same bag on each side at least in my opinion just as an optical thing. I'm not taking my 600lbs of tenere into places that I'm really worried about width to the point of losing 10L of storage. I have 2 35L on the givi outback racks which is offset and I want the X rack to remedy that.
