I can only relay what some others have said who had them. I think the consensus is they aren't too good.

They got a bad rap years ago for poor customer service. I had a set of leather bags for a couple of years untill I upgraded to Tsukayu

I ordered a set of Viking bags. Just got them today so I can’t speak on the bags yet. Update to there customer service, I had a really good experience with them on live chat. I bought the bags and 2 days later they went on sale. I messaged them and asked if they could adjust the price and they did with no issues.

Don't expect the same customer service from Viking Cycles. Horrible experience with them. Took 3 weeks for them to ship my product out and the same amount of time to respond to any correspondence. Products are excellent from both companies, just beware.

Update: For me customer service was good. Installing the bags as a throw over didn’t work at all they seamed to sit too high and was a pain cause the Velcro is really strong. I hard mounted them the brackets they sent wouldn’t fit in back mounting bolt spot. I had to modify the hole to fit. I didn’t really like having to drill holes in the bag to mount it but I guess that makes it more water tight if you’re using it as a toss over. They run on the small side I bought the large bags and my half helmet will not fit in the bag without forcing it in. The bags do look really nice and they secure extremely well!

I had a set years ago and the lids became very wavy. They also started to peel back in areas. I tossed them in the trash.

And those couple examples are similar to past owners' experiences with Viking. I didn't recall details but they have made the case for my initial statement in this thread.
