Dimensions (fully packed):
55" - bottom of pannier, across top to bottom of other pannier bucket
9" - height of bag in top center
7" - distance from inside to outside of pannier bucket bottom
12" - front to back in top center
And also the dimensions of the Siskiyou in a comparable way to the Great basin.
Thanks in advance.
Here measurements for the new 2013 Great Basin Saddlebag - they are approximate, as the amount of gear packed into the bag changes the shape of soft luggage.
• Dimensions (fully packed):
56" - bottom of pannier, across top to bottom of other pannier bucket
Basically the same as before, with a little more "doming" on top due to increased "front to back" distance.
10" - height of bag in top center
Again, the difference here is mostly a result of the "front to back" measurement below allowing the top to arc more when stuffed full.
6" - distance from inside to outside of pannier bucket bottom
This dimension didn't change - I think this is simply a more accurate measurement taken at very bottom of the "leg."
14" - front to back in top center
This is where/why we picked up an additional 10 liters of volume (60 vs. 50), by adding nearly 2" in this plane. No change in the way the bag mounts or rides, just a bit roomier for sleeping bags and other lightweight, bulky gear in the top.
Hope this helps!
