Adventure-Spec Magadan Panniers MK2 (pair)
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.
The 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.
A few years later input from desert expert and author of 'The Adventure Motorcycling Handbook' Chris Scott further refined the design focussing on the ability to field service the panniers whilst on extended journeys, and the Mk2 Panniers you see today were born.
35 litres each side. The body of the pannier contains a dry bag that allows you to separate wet and dry clothing as well as remove the inner without unstrapping the pannier. Large external pockets are designed for easy access and securing water/oil/fuel containers.
The external bag shell is made from ultra tough 1000D Cordura fabric outer and inner layers covering an abrasion and slash resistant inner core making the bags resistant to knife attack as well as tough abrasive scrapes and falls. The material choices have been made with long term servicing in mind, making it easy to make repairs or modifications with simple equipment readily available around the world.
The Magadans are designed to be easily mounted onto any rack system commonly used on large and mid-weight adventure bikes. The back of each bag is supported by a stiffened insert and the double velcro saddle straps across the top distribute weight over the rear of the bike. Finally, vertical and horizontal mounting straps (not supplied) and stainless steel Double 'D' rings enable you to secure the bags to available anchor points. Whilst they can be used without a rack, we don’t advise it unless the bike is equipped with suitable exhaust heat protection and anchor points.
Waterproofing comes in the form of roll top dry bags inside each bag. These create a 100% waterproof environment making the Magadans suitable for river crossings, heavy downpours and jet washing.
The Magadans are built around a conservative style that helps rider, bike and luggage blend in. We are yet to find a bike that they don’t look good on!
