I'm about to take a short trip and started examining the panniers. There are a number of nice features that are intuitive to use. However, there are two things that I haven't been able to figure out.

First, after unzipping the expansion flap, one finds another zipper that goes around about two-thirds of the back of the inner liner. You can sort of pry it out a little but I can't see the function of it. Has anyone figured it out?

Second, inside both bags is a combination lock with a short lead. My best guess is that it's a helmet lock since the bags are already locked to the rack.

Has anyone seen a user manual for the bags? It would probably answer the first two questions.

The lock goes through the loop on the outside zipper. I think the internal zipper was just to put in supporting panels. I’m not at home. So, I can’t check my bag.

Evan, thanks for the info. The lock question now is embarrassing. It's intuitively obvious. I'll bet you're right about the internal zipper too.
