Anyone know anything about "QURO" panniers?

There seems to be some people making panniers in China for cheap but can't find any info about these anywhere. I can find pictures of people putting them to use on Chinese and Thai sites but no actual reviews.

The only thing I want to know is if it will blow up if it gets dropped at low speed or when standing.

I've also just found these and they look "decent"

Like you said not sure if they'll hold up in a fall?...

It looks as though they are completely riveted together with no welds at all; hence the formed plastic corners.

But! For the money if your not going to the Gobi desert on an extended trip, these might be just the ticket for those daily commutes

I'm in the process of contacting them to see about buying a few sets as they require a minimum of 2 sets for a purchase.

Anyone else with any info???

I'm receiving a set tomorrow. Will report back once I get a chance to play around with them.

Got the package yesterday. All the parts are there and this stuff isn't too shabby. It's fully riveted (no welding), the locks are fantastic, and IMO, a generally good deal. There are plenty of things that I'd want to modify to make it better (mounting puck kit needs better quality control, sharp corners on inside of case need to be either sanded down or covered with something, pannier wire (the one that keeps the cover from flying off when opened fully) easily gets caught in the mounting puck, etc.

I'll make an in-depth review once I'm done drilling all the holes and mount the second pannier. As an aside, the mounting kit they provide is, I kid you not, the exact same one Touratech sells. Every single piece. Every little design on the denier mounts are the same. Bolts, washers, pucks, EVERYTHING, is the same and it's included for free with the pannier.

What was your total expense for the set, if you don't mind me asking?
