They are Oxford Touring, as opposed to Sport. One of the features that I like best is the harness stays attached to the saddle alowing you to unclip the panniers and carry them like you would with hard ones. The harness is adjustable for height and can be positioned as you please.
Good tough kit, stays dry in showers, but use the plastic covers in a down pour.
Got the expandable magnetic tank bag as well. It can also be used as a tail pack, if solo with the panniers and doubles as a rucksack.
I have been using them for three years, still like new.
