I set myself the task of designing a set of throwover panniers that require no frames and fit as many bikes as possible.
Tested in both the city and beyond the black stump and made with the same care that Expedition Pannierz have become famous for. A recent punishing trip across the Tanami on a DRZ 250 and a 80kph prang on a GSXR 750 have been an ideal finish to the testing programme.
We have fitted Travellers to Trailbikes, Classics, Adventure, Tourers and Sports bikes.
Please feel free to get some. I understand that they will not fit all bikes or suit all riders but I'm always happy to refund or exchange.
Each bag has a soft loop vlcro style patches on the back to take our optional foam pads to protect bodywork.
Made in Australia to the highest standards, meeting Military specs, CS12 T/S (tear stop) is 100% Corespun. This ensures that the fabric is suitable for any situation where great strength is required.
Tear Resistance: WARP – 250N, (AS 2001.2.10) and WEFT – 190N via a polyester ripstop thread
Breaking Force: WARP – 3200N, (AS 2001.2.3) and WEFT – 2870N
Hydrostatic Head: 800mm min, (AS 2001.2.17)
Unlike coated fabrics after weaving the thread into cloth our supplier immerses it in their chemical formula and then squeeze it through the actual threads deep into the fabric. This makes it waterproof and breathable. Specially treated to resist mold and mildew.
A traditional canvas thread comprises of a blend of fibres which can be all cotton or a mixture of polyester and cotton or just polyester which are grouped and spun together to create a single thread, which is then woven into a canvas. Corespun canvas is a much more complex process. Each thread consists of a strong centre core of polyester, which is then tightly entwined in a 100% cotton outer layer. This creates a very strong dense fabric that is considerably lighter and stronger, which achieves the better performance than a much heavier traditional canvas otherwise would. Some companies are known to just put a corespun thread in the tears top lines and call it a corespun fabric whereas a true corespun is where all the threads including the tear stop one are corespun . Defence Forces usually only specify the 100% corespun fabrics because of the strength and performance capabilities of these fabrics

Sent by Aus Post the day ordered, kept informed all the way by email from Aus Post & delivered sooner than expected, great service. Fitted bags above seat & thought they rode too high, remounted under seat, much neater. Test ride over 200klms & found them very secure. Had used a metre strap to pull top of bags closer to seat & found these bags very stable at ALL speeds. Thanks Andy
Andy, just had a front wheel washout on my Night train.. on slo corner..on dark with your 20litre panniers on..with groundmat and Martin backpacker guitar atop them. Barely a blemish on panniers..just the attachment straps tore away a little and need restitching...take a bow..goodstuff..
