I have this setup as well and I am a bit disappointed in the quality of the bags. First issue was that the screws that attach the KlickFix attachment system to the bag were very loose, one had come off completely on my second short ride. NBD, I just tightened them all up, they were quite loose. I encourage others to check theirs. The second issue is more concerning, the bag literally started to come apart at the seams. This happened because there is not a 3rd KlickFix attachment at the front of the bag, where the majority of the weight is held in the bag, this causes the bag to pull away from the rack and the stitching failed. I had my first aid kit, 32 oz water, 16 oz beer and a puffy in the bag.

I contacted HQV and they told me to go through my dealer, thanks guys. So I did some research, found someone who sells the same KlickFix attachments (they're made for bicycling, Velo Fred was the site). I added a third attachment to the the bag, there's juuuuuust enough room for it (you have to make sure the mounting discs inside the bag don't interfere with eachother. It is now much more securely attached at all three points on the rack.

These bags look very cool, just like the concept. Hopefully with my fix they will also be functional....

When mounting my bags for the first time, I noticed this also and thought to myself that these bags probably aren't going to last very long. Especially off-roading.

Uhhhh...pics and link please. :)

I have these panniers as well. I agree, they seem like they are barely attached. I think AlpineNinja is spot on. I found the KlickFix attachments and ordered a couple.....


That should be the ticket. A picture of how you added yours would be great.

I received the Klickfix rails from VeloFred. They were great to deal with. They communicated every step and shipped them rather fast. I was able to get them fitted last night. The bags are a lot more solid now. They really should have came like this from Husky. I find it funny that even in their marketing material it looks like the bags are ready to fall off. I can post some pictures and simple instructions when I have more time. You will need to grind the backing plate disks down to get proper clearance where the two rails are butted up to each other. Otherwise it was rather easy. I'll have some pictures here soon. Just wanted to give an update for anyone on the fence. If your concerned about your bags falling off, this should do the trick.

Looks like it should help a bit. My local dealer is going to start a warranty claim on mine, but I may end up getting more of the brackets and just having an upholsterer stitch up the bad spot. Otherwise I’ll add the brackets to the replacement bags when I get them.

I think we did about the same thing but I adjusted the existing upper KlickFix (they can slide on the rail) as far towards the back of the bag and that made enough room for me to put the new bar right next to it. Adding that new bar really hold the bag together where it was coming apart on me. I used some seam grip and tenacious tape to repair the broken bit and it's held up on a weekend fully loaded so far.

I managed to hit about 100 miles of gravel road this past weekend up in the mountains. The bags held up well with the extra bracket. I can't imagine they would do very well with the stock two brackets. It may help to add a stiffener to the inner wall to help hold the odd shape. I may play around with it some more...before they fail. Disappointing quality and design I must say.

I was told the bags are made by Touratech. Reputation for high quality but I generally don't care for their stuff. Bought a waterproof tailbag from them and I'm pretty disappointed with it. It is not a useful shape and the design is lacking
