    RTW Heritage

    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.

    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.
