Adventure Spec Magadan Panniers MK3
The Adventure Spec Magadan Panniers strong and waterproof with a capacity of 70 litres (35ltr on each side). Designed by legendary adventure rider Walter Colebatch, they are an overland adventure rider classic. They feature 1000D Codrura fabric and removable dry bags. Large side pockets can accommodate tools or water/fuel bottles. The Magadans are designed to be mounted on any rack system.
Built for a tough life
Constructed from super tough 1000D fabric (the same as our Atacama & Mongolia Pants) for long life durability.
Simple is good
Back to basics simple design that favours ease of use and versatility.
Easy to repair
The 1000D fabric is tough but if it does need attention the panniers can be easily repaired with simple sewing skills anywhere in the world.

The large buckles are designed to be easy to use even when covered in dried mud. They are not stitched into the webbing so can be removed and replaced easily if required.
The Magadan Panniers are sold as a pair. Each pannier has a 32 litre volume. Total capacity is 64 litres and increase this by using our Molle Pouches.

The Magadan MK1 was designed by Walter Colebatch over a decade ago and is now in its third version. The panniers have become a RTW classic, favoured by riders on long expeditions that need to be able to rely on and service their gear as they go, including Austin Vince, Chris Scott, Lyndon Poskitt and Heather Sinclair.
Add dry bags
The Magadan Panniers are very splashproof but not waterproof. Add our waterproof liner or use your own dry bags to add waterproofing.

THE MAGADAN PANNIERS ARE A FULLY MODULAR LUGGAGE SYSTEM THAT ADAPTS TO YOUR RIDING
The original Adventure Spec Magadan Panniers were born out of a design challenge created by renowned adventure motorcyclist Walter Colebatch.
“How do I create a set of soft luggage that is properly positioned, lockable, strong, simple and easy to maintain on the road whilst being waterproof with the look of classic luggage?”
Walter subsequently worked with Adventure Spec to develop and test what has become one of the most popular and acclaimed soft luggage systems for ADV Riders around the world. Time and again riders choose The Magadans for their simplicity and durability.
They don’t look high tech or expensive, but for many travellers riding to remote regions that’s exactly the point. If they break through wear and tear, you find a helpful local with a sewing machine, fix them and then keep going.
Truly luggage for the long distance rider.
This is our Mk3 version of the Magadan Panniers. We’ve retained the classic styling and simple rugged design but added features that increase versatility. Most noticeably, these new Magadan Panniers now feature Molle webbing that is used throughout the entire Adventure Spec luggage system. This opens up a huge range of options to add Adventure Spec Molle Pouches that can be tailored to your style of adventure riding. From RTW expeditions to Trans Euro Trail overnighters.
