Arkel Dry-Lite Panniers
New from Arkel are the Dry-Lites: waterproof, light, and fast-installing panniers. The double pannier design features 1952 cubic inches of volume and weigh just 420 grams for the set.
The bags have a watertight roll-top design, reflective accents on all sides, and an adjustable Velcro harness that keeps the bags in place so there's no sliding back and forth of on the rack while a hook and bungee system keeps the bag secure to the bottom of the rack. A built-in handle and optional shoulder strap help with transporting the bags. When not needed, the bags roll tight for easy storage and fit inside a bag or pocket.
