They are made from Gas Mask Bags, which are seam welded vinyl bags bought from an Army Disposal store. Fitted some rack hooks, plywood backing and thats about it. Only problem I have found is getting reflective material to stick. I haven't found a glue yet that holds including silastics.
There are other options if you look for them.
I admire your ingenuity
I'd love Ortliebs but baulk at the price. One day!!!
It was easy to justify the price, even with Ortleib panniers my bike costs a tenth of what a car would and costs a lot less to run!
