magadan soft luggage/Rally Raid pannier rack KTM 690

Looking for a good rack for my 690. I have ordered some Magadan (Walter Colbatch soft luggage). I like the fact the Rally Raid can accommodate Fuel cells and tool holders etc. Any one used Magadan soft luggage with this rack ? Is it a good match or would you recommend a rack such as the Touratect version. Many thanks. Ps i asked Rally Raid and they were honest (which I appreciate) they have no experience of the Magadans. They suggested i post for you opinions / feedback.

I'm presuming you're talking about pannier frames rather than a rear rack (as you would use with a roll bag).

I have Metal Mule pannier frames on my 690 Enduro, these are similar to Touratech. I can't see that open loop MM/TT frames will be as good for soft luggage as the Rally Raid version, and as you say the metal inserts on the RR frames will take a tool tube and other items.
