    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.

    Product: Arkel Dry-Lites Panniers
    Ownership: several months
    Tech Knowledge: high

    Pros

    This really was a purchase out of necessity as the rear rack that I had special ordered when I purchased the Specialized Diverge touring bike would only accommodate certain rear panniers. More specifically, I needed a pannier that I could strap gear (tent & sleeping bag) onto. The Topeak bags could not accommodate such gear. The fabric is lightweight and during cross country transit when bike is being transported in the travel bag in the carriage bin underneath the bus, I use the packed panniers as the carry-on luggage.

    Cons

    It takes a little while to secure the bag onto the rear rack with the velcro straps, but this goes with the territory on this particular design which is not really a "con", but instead a slight inconvenience. I do sense that one will learn to streamline this procedure over time after repetitions of the task are experienced. Do not forget to secure the braces on the bottom of each bag to prevent them from flapping around. I really like the buckle on top of the bag which enables easy closing and quick securing of it.

    Other Thoughts

    Be particular in packing the tool bag as it must be secured inside the checked luggage, or bike bag in this case, as the NTSA does not allow potential weapons to be taken inside the bus where the driver and other passengers are located.
