Giant Loop developed their new MotoTrekk Panniers in collaboration with their Australian importer, Steve Smith of Adventure Moto AU, with the goal of designing a rugged, stable, universally fitting, affordable, waterproof, rack-mounted motorcycle soft luggage solution for virtually all motorcycle makes and models. Sold in pairs, RF-welded roll-top MotoTrekk Panniers by Giant Loop measure 21 liters each side, with three full rolls of the top to create a 100% waterproof seal. In dry conditions with only one or two rolls need to close the top, several more liters of gear will fit. Giant Loop’s MotoTrekk Panniers feature an innovative integrated mounting system that enables them to simply strap onto almost any motorcycle side luggage racks, including dual sport, adventure touring, naked, standard and sport touring. MotoTrekk Panniers are so universal they've virtually fit on every tube-type sidecase carrier system they've been tested on. The Pannier Set includes include shoulder straps that clip into D-rings on the bottom and back of the Panniers, so they can be carried like a backpack when off the bike for a day of site-seeing or for a hands-free carry to your hotel or campsite. Other rider friendly features include lash loops to secure Giant Loop’s waterproof roll-top Possibles Pouches to the front and back of the Panniers, a quick-connect magnetic buckle and anchor strap to secure that Panniers to luggage racks for easy mounting even when packed.
“At $339 the Giant Loop MotoTrekk Panniers are reasonably priced for a set of quality, waterproof and bombproof soft bags. We liked how simple they are to mount and it gets even easier when used with the GL Pannier Mounting plates. We did find it a little challenging to get the mounting system tightened up for rough terrain, but it got easier as our familiarity grew with the bags. Overall, the MotoTrekks are rugged enough to handle adventure rides well beyond the beaten path.” – ADV Pulse

In my opinion if the top overstraps were starting a little lower ( 1-2”) on the mounting side of the bag it would be a better fit.
I tried mounting the bags on my 690 Enduro/ touratech Pannier mounts, and noticed 2 things, the bags were sitting closer to the ground than they needed to be, and the stiffener in the back of the bag made to mount to the frame was not in back of the top Pannier tube, but underneath it.
I pulled the bags up another 1-2” higher and my ground clearance increased, and it fit better, I was now not able to use the two top over straps to hold bag to Pannier top frame, but these bags give plenty of mounting options, and it’s all good.
