Are pannier bags worth the time/money/effort ?
any feed back gratefully received.

That depends on you really  :169:

I have them cos it's easier / lighter than dragging wet & dirty panniers into your accommodation & it also stops sh1t falling out of your pannier when you open it

I use them, but ones from the old BMW Vario boxes (Mane Event bags).   They don't fill the panniers completely (Givi Trekker Dolomitis) but I fill the additional space with waterproofs, gloves and some tools.

I think the key is to get bags which have just enough rigidity without hampering filling the pannier shape.  Some BMW ones are overly-rigid (and heavy/bulky) for my liking.

If you have regular-shaped panniers (Givi Trekker for example) - using clothes bags from Ebay/Amazon/Ikea in turn inside Tesco-type reusable "square" bags - can be handy (and cheap)
