Just received the Globscout 45L panniers for my 2014 GSA and thought I'd post some quick first impressions. A little background...I also have an '04 GSA with Jesse Odysseys on it. The Jesse's have been great and stood up to more abuse than they deserve to over the 10 years they've been on the bike. Jesse and company have provided great customer service in the few times I've called. It was just for this bike I wanted to do something different both in look and function. I also wanted to use the OEM racks for some reason. Just like most here would do I started looking at the possibilities long before the bike landed. The OEM bags were easy to dismiss. Yes, a single key would be nice but the build quality just isn't worth it. TT makes a great product and there are a number of other options but in the end...the styling, features, and competitive price point made the Globescount panniers the choice. Paul at ADVDEPOT did a great job with the communication and the order. Based on my experience thus far I can recommend them without hesitation. The cases arrived on schedule and were packed appropriately. Others have shown pics of the packaging and case insides so I won't repeat. The only thing I'll add is that the bags needed a couple days to air out and let the smell from the adhesive/sealant dissipate. It was strong and still lingers a bit but it will fade. The build quality is first rate as are the features and functionality. The left case weighed in at 15.75# and the exhaust side case at 15.9#. Inside dimensions at the top are 17.25" x 11". The mounting brackets on the top of the lids will allow top bags with 1 5/8 straps. Starting with the mounting. On the exhaust side the cutout is well executed. They added essentially a bit of a heat shield which in early runs seems to contribute to much cooler temperatures on the exhaust side than I have with my Odysseys. You can see the small plate in the pic below spanning from the top of the bracket to the bottom. The puck mounting system is secure with no play. <img src="https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5500/14242251149_8cf2823dfc.jpg" width="500" height="375" alt="image"></a> On the left side you'll find the same solid mounting. <img src="https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3876/14449080633_e0b77aaae8.jpg" width="500" height="375" alt="image"></a> A bit of work I needed to do involved the Wunderlich GS Emotion Alu Compartment. It's a nice little tool case but the front mounting tab comes straight off the front of the box. This configuration mounts the box at a slight angle and not parallel with the OEM rack. Thus in its default configuration there isn't room for the Globescout mounting puck to lock into position. The solution I came up with was to take a couple M5x25 bolts and make a little spacer bar to clamp onto the rack. I then added some spacers and mounted the Wunderlich mounting tab. It now aligns with the OEM racks and the puck is free to lock into position. Total spacing added 5/8". <img src="https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5585/14425553321_ddd16a50e3.jpg" width="500" height="375" alt="image"></a> I like how they look on the bike a lot. Debated between black and the natural and decided not to black and white the bike. <img src="https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2933/14428908725_a71dd8933a.jpg" width="500" height="375" alt="image"></a> Overall width is 39". <img src="https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2940/14242304650_d7a36551d6.jpg" width="375" height="500" alt="image"></a> The lock/hinge mechanism works well. Like others I wish they would have used a little bigger key but that's looking for issues. It comes with 4 keys which I appreciated. The lock covers are heavy plastic and will last. The inner bags are well constructed but nothing fancy. If you sew or know someone who does you could make them a lot cheaper. In my order they forgot to send the upper nets but Paul put them in the mail to me immediately. I'll probably end up seeing about making some kind of bad for the upper lid on one side instead of the net but I'll try the nets first. Overall very pleased with the cases. Ride safe.
