Arkel Dolphin 48 Touring Panniers - Gray
The Arkel Dolphins are the most functional, durable, waterproof dry-bags on the market. The Dolphin 48s are large enough for expedition touring and double as excellent daily commuter workhorses. A toploader with sewn and taped seam technology that offers an Interloc(r) System that creates a watertight seal by folding the closures one over the other. Then its roll, clip and go. Two large completely independent waterproof compartments separated by an open access storage pouch that features small laser cut holes at the bottom for drainage - eliminating the need to store wet items inside the bag and doing away with water build up and condensation. Two additional mesh side pockets for convenient quick access storage. Includes our patented Cam-Lock(r) mounting system - It wont come off the bike until you want it to! Superior accessibility and the best in dry-bag technology has finally arrived.

Customer reviews of this product:

StarStarStarStarStar Seems great so far

by Wendy F. of Brookline, MA
Product: Arkel Dolphin 48 Touring Panniers - Gray
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

I bought these as a gift for my husband, who has been using my old panniers that were purchased in 1991. It was time for an upgrade! These are huge (bigger than I expected), waterproof, easy to mount and use. He seems really happy with them, and I have pannier envy.

Cons

The only disappointment was that I didn't realize the smaller front pocket was also a roll-top. I know that's best for protection against water, but it's a little bit of a pain to get into quickly.

StarStarStarStarStar Excellent panniers

by Robert R. of Branford , CT
Product: Arkel Dolphin 48 Touring Panniers - Gray
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Great quality build! Amazing attention to detail and materials. Intelligent thoughtful design and great care was used in making these. For years I used a German brand but I became more frustrated as the mounting hardware flexed when packed so that they would need to be forced onto the racks.

Cons

They are a bit large and my heel jusssssst nudges then while pedaling. A minor adjustment and they’ll be fine.

by Vince B
Product: Arkel Dolphin 48 Touring Panniers - Gray
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

I've been happy with these panniers so far, especially since it's been raining so much in NW Pa the last couple weeks. They keep everything dry, though I do put my things in individual stuff sacks so I'm not digging through everything to get what I want out. The extra pocket in between the two waterproof pockets is a nice touch, I put my rain gear in there so it's easy to get to and I'm not opening the main compartments, exposing everything to rain. I especially love the elastic hook for attaching to the rack, no need to adjust it, just hook it and go. It holds the bags in place and it's never come undone for me.

Cons

None yet, but I've only put a few hundred miles on them.

Other Thoughts

If I put a water bottle in the pockets on the pedal side, I do hit it with my heel. I just use those pockets for a bottle of heat for my stove and white lightning in the other.
