Saw these but wasn't sure how stable the clip on sort were does anyone use this type ? Also stupid question I'm sure but would I need to use both at the same time, probably only need the space of one most of the time but I'm guessing to balance the bike better to put both on and split the load ?

They're totally stable -- the only reason for clip-on systems is just for convenience in removing them. It really only takes 20 seconds to remove a pannier though, so it's not really that necessary in my opinion.

Panniers are reasonably close to the centre of mass, enough that you can use one and not notice any real difference in handling of the bike (obviously your mileage may vary depending on what exactly you're carrying).

Compairing it to my small backpack which is about the same size, maybe 18L per bag.
The size is 30x22x17cm approx.8kg per bag max.
They look great for the price. Instore only?
If they are the same as last years, they are OK but not perfect. They attach firmly enough but there's sufficient movement to cause another feature to be a pain in the backside. At the base of the ones I bought they had a zip pocket for holding a water proof cover. The zip pull tab for this is quite long, and I found there was enough swaying movement in the pannier that this was in contact with the spokes - causing a constant chink-chink sound.

I have one of those attach to seat post racks by the way. If you have a full rack, it may not be a problem. But it did strike me as a daft that anyone would put a dangling zip pull right in the position where it could potentially come into contact with moving parts of the cycle.

Unsuitable for rougher ground (the average canal tow path should be OK) though. I found mine would swing about too much and occasionally jump off.

Size wise they are rather smaller than the bigger Ortlieb panniers you see around (perhaps 2/3 to half).

Despite the problems above - which can be compensated for I feel they are very good value for the money.

@tinkerbellian - you can ride perfectly well with one pannier but you will have to slightly adjust your riding to compensate for the uneven weight distribution (and so be careful not to overload it). It will feel slightly weird to start, but persevere and you'll get used to it.

I bought these last year for a 2 day ride down a canal tow path. For the money they are not bad, but as a previous poster said, they have a tendency to jump off, especially if loaded. I almost lost my bag into the canal on a couple of occasions.

Then, does that not render them useless and dangerous?

It sounds to me as if they haven't been properly attached around the back of the stanchions of the pannier rack itself.
