Arkel Bike Bags On Closeout

by Josh Lipton

arkel-GT54-thorn-tandem-cropWe are closing out all Arkel Panniers, Handlebar Bags and Seat bags. This is a great opportunity to get some great Canadian made bike bags at low prices while supplies last. Arkel is know for great quality sewn bags.

I enjoyed testing a set of Arkel GT-54′s mounted on a Thorn Tandem during a bike tour last fall.

When comparing non-waterproof panniers like Arkel to waterproof panniers like Ortlieb panniers, we always point out the advantages of sewn bags in that they have quite a bit more organization than waterproof panniers because it is much more feasible for zippers, pockets and other features to be sewn in. The downside is that for waterproof protection, additional rain covers are required.
