No bells or whistles just a pannier featuring quality craftsmanship and materials at an entry level price. The bags are created with 1000 denier Cordura, YKK zippers and feature reflective bands on the compression straps. The panniers are front loading with a large suitcase like main compartment. The adjustable aluminum hook system features a locking swivel for additional stability. External pockets are easy to access. Sold as a pair.
I’ve only had the opportunity to use them twice on short one and two night overnight outings. They are roomy, well made, and rugged. The pouch on the back is handy for carrying extra water bottles. They are easy to pack and unpack. The mounting system is super easy to adjust and the mounting couldn’t be easier.
Very Good Basic Panniers
A customer from East Texas USA on 9/13/11
These are my first set of panniers and I have only used them for commuting. But they are constructed well using high quality materials, tons of room, extremely easy to install. I'm very pleased with them and can tell they will last me a very long time. Arkel didn't skimp when they made these basic panniers.
