    StarStarStarStarStar Great design and super light!

    Product: Arkel Dry-Lites Panniers
    Ownership: a month
    Tech Knowledge: high

    Pros

    Completely waterproof
    Attaches to bike quickly
    Super light
    No zippers to break

    Cons

    Not designed to hold a lot of stuff
    Would love it they sold in hi-viz colors for commuting
    The bags can't be mounted individually

    Other Thoughts

    These bags are very well designed and waterproof. They weigh 1/4 as much as several other pannier sets I own. I'm excited to try them out on a lightweight bike tour. They don't hold a ton of stuff...which is good because it will force you to pack light. Would love to see a future design in hi-viz color so cars can see me better.

    Pros

    Excellent.
    It's a uniquely designed set of panniers, with by far the lowest weight of any pannier I tested. Quality looks sturdy enough for multi-week trips. I don't think they are designed or large enough for really long-haul trekking.
    I am not sure why Arkel chose the somewhat weird strap contraption that requires the bags to be used as a non-separated double pannier system. The bags have D-rings that work perfectly well with double-loop clips, and I used that set-up to attach each bag individually to the luggage carrier. They should work with low-rider front carriers this way as well. If you are looking for lightweight panniers, I can highly recommend them.

    Cons

    A little on the small side.
