hmmm

So you advise that pannier straps are placed up against the shock so they can catch in between the springs when you ride??? When trying to teach your granny to suck eggs, please remember not to drop the egg.

Product placement!

Is this an advertising feature? I once had a pair of Oxford Products throw-overs. The strap broke and the bag melted on the exhaust. Not good. May I suggest Ortlieb's panniers - the ones that fit onto pannier rails. Hugely expandable. I use them on long tours, carrying a tent and lots of weight. Completely waterproof. I use them off road and have found them to be tough enough for anything. The clips are replaceable. I always carry a spare.

Ortleib

I crashed a set of Ortleibs a few years ago. They came off and bounced down the road. One got run over by a car. Then I picked em up and clipped em back to the bike. Virtually undamaged, and still water tight, the moral of the story is that Ortleib clips are a bit naff..... :)
