Awsome Bag


Reviewed By: Todd S on 5/20/18

Recently did a credit card tour and the Arkel bag held and organized every thing i needed. Good construction, great stability on the bike over rough roads and by far the best bag I've ever used. Worth every penny.

Expensive, but well worth it!

Glad I splurged on this, it's so handy. Love that the rain cover is attached and is so easy to put on and off. And the bag comes on and off the bike in a jiffy. So many little pockets and compartments, and open the middle up for one big storage. Almost wish it wouldn't expand so high... it's tempting to take more stuff than I really should (my only complaint!).

The BEST Addition to any Touring Setup


Reviewed By: James A. Dennis on 5/20/17

I agree with all the other reviews, this rear bag is spot-on! "A"arkel really nailed it with this addition to their versatile line of touring bags. I was erroneously concerned at first about the 4 Velcro straps that basically "hold" this bag on the rear rack of my Salsa Vaya 2. After some Single Track action this past weekend....It was still there when I reached the'll keep it :)

Details matter

This is replacing a trunk bag that I got for cheap on Amazon. At the time I wasn't sure I was going to get much use out of the bag but in hindsight I wish I just splurged on the Tailrider because it works so great. It doesn't flop around and has pockets for small items. I use it on my commuter bike and it will be used for an upcoming credit-card tour this spring.

A Hall of Fame touring bag


Reviewed By: cykklist on 12/9/14

I agree with others that this is an extremely useful and versatile bag. I find it so useful that I bought the Randonneur rack to put on my speedy bike for club rides. Great details, eg, the yellow rain cover has a loop for hanging a rear light and the top straps expand to hold many unexpected items. I rarely go for a ride without it.
