Hello Rod :-)
I see from your text, and from your pictures, that you fancy small soft panniers when you travel. Light is good when it comes to off road.
I see though that you have a ton of stuff strapped outside your bags. Doesn't that defy the whole purpose of having small panniers? I tried the same on my Kola trip and you can still follow my trail from all the items I lost
When I was a Boy Scout I was tought to always leave a trail for me to follow back if I needed to. Were you a Boy Scout too
