Question Panniers, good price or not?

I came across aluminum panniers that are fully welded, with locking weather proof lids, 18x18x8 works out to 43 or so L per pannier.
They are $120 per pannier, is that a good price

Make sure you know your source. I know there was someone who was selling Aluminum cases he was making on CL. He would collect the money and never send the product. This is well documented over on ADV.

I just checked them on their website. They seem like a good deal to me. I would go for a pair if I didn't already have a set on my EXP.
