Please clarify

Are you looking for a single pannier less than 1500 cubes, or a PAIR? If it's a pair, I can't imagine how little you'd pack in them. The Jandd Saddlebag is a single listed at 1150 cubes. The Cartier is also listed as a single. I think the Lone Peaks are normally sold as a pair.

I can pretty much fill up one of my Jandd Economy panniers (988 cubes/each) with a U-lock, teva sandles and windbreaker. I purchased them new from Jandd on eBay for about $35. Actually 2 pairs at that price, one for the wife. We've used them commuting for a few years and they've really done well and are by no means big. They have a nice stiff back plate, a zipper with rain flap, and the burly nylon is coated on the inside for water resistance:

I wasn't too happy with the clunky metal top hooks because they tended to jump off the rack if I hit big asphalt bumps on city commutes. An unfortunate cost cutting measure by Jandd. So I installed triple latch-style hooks and have been happy ever since:

Performance very small pannier

Yikes! $240 for a pair of really small panniers. Makes the Arkel T-28 look like a bargain.
Hey BW - We stopped by the local Performance Bike shop over the weekend to pick up some sundry items during their summer sale. They had the house-brand panniers in a particularly small size, I want to say about 1000 cubes per pair. Small and tidy! Sale price was about $50. I checked their website and the product is not listed. But if you happen to live near a retail store...
