You can even break down and pitch both inner and outer together. As a dome if you need to pitch under a barn roof on a tiled floor as its pissing down its ...

Re: Sw motech Dakar panniers

I've got their pannier racks and they're well built and solid, and although the powder coat is quite thin and has peeled off in places the metal underneath seems pretty resilient to rust or firring.
