Oh yeah, I didn't notice that. The velcro wrap seems like a good idea, the little ties are a bit of a PITA to use with the lobster fingers. The inner liners that came with mine were alright too.
I have the older version of the Proof 100, assume there's not much difference though?
There's now an eye melting website for Steve's attempt oneyeartimetrial.org.uk/
Yeah, the mitts I was using have room for icebreaker liners and defeet dura gloves and there's still space. Downside is, it's a pretty terrible when you have to do anything (doors, locks, scratching your nose etc.)
Some fairly minimal Goretex mitts/lobster gloves and some super-thin wool liners or regular wool gloves (or both) has worked well for me so far. Circulation is fairly good, but with baggy mitts there's plenty of room to layer up inside for extra warmth.
The City version is rated the same water/dustproofness and around 1.2kg, similar to the Carradice. They've just removed all the extra straps and stuff off them.
@Pifko this still works: UKSTAFFSSM20
The City version of those panniers are a bit simpler and a bit lighter.
Glad to be of help, looking forward to seeing the rest of the touring gear too!
Seems like a good idea building those supports in. Think I'm going to stitch the base-piece/padding in when I finally get around to making a new porteur-sack bag for the weekly veg shop.
You might need new stays for the mudguards but that's about it.
