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.
The updated 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.
Fitting 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:
640 Enduro / 640 Adventure
XRV 650 Africa Twin
For 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.
