Arkel Lite Touring rear panniers
+ Weight: 2,3 kg / 5 lbs (pair)
+ Volume: 42 l. / 2550 cu. in. (pair)

+ Color: black

+ This bag also available in red and moss colors. Please indicate in checkout notes if you want another color than black.

+ + Huge mesh pocket for easy storage
. + A mesh pocket on a pannier has many undeniable advantages, like carrying a wet towel and bathing suit back from the creek without soaking the inside, or to stash fresh fruits, sunglasses and sun lotion. Or what about that much needed road map en route to the 4-star B&B -- now, wouldn't it be a shame to get lost?

+ Smiley zipper path gives huge access
. + The rear pocket has a zipper that curves all the way to the back. Arkel calls this the "Smiley Zippers" because they open the pocket like a huge smile, giving unlimited access to the contents, yet never opening up the bottom so that you won't lose your precious cargo.

+ + The top pocket features the same "Smiley Zipper" path as the rear pockets. It will carry a full size Michelin map, keys, glasses, gloves, passport, wallet, change and much more! And if you forget to close the smiley zipper, the pocket and zipper configuration are such that the content inside will likely not spill out. If this happens to you, we bet this will bring a smile on your face!
+ Integrated internal frame
+ The internal aluminum frame works in conjunction with the back plate that expends to the bottom plate and acts as a "shelf", keeping the bag from sagging when loaded. The dynamic of that system works as a whole to give unmatched rigidity to the panniers and incredible stability on the bike.

+ Inside liner back pocket
+ A liner separates the backplate from the main body of the bag. The space between the liner and the backplate is ideal to stash a map, paper, envelope or anything you want to prevent from bending.
+ Protect and organize with Dry Bags
+ Optional Arkel dry bags can be used to help organize and protect the contents of the T-42?s. The Arkel 23 liter dry bag will fill the main compartment or if you prefer you can use a couple of smaller dry bags to better organize the load.

+ Hard Bottom
+ The back plate of the T-42, made out of HMWPE (High Molecular Weight Polyethylene, which is a superior blend of the regular High Density Polyethylene) extends to include the entire bottom of the bag. This makes the bag incredibly strong structurally, it enhances stability of the bag on the bike and prevents the bottom from bulging or sagging under the load.
+ D-Rings for shoulder strap
+ The T-42 comes equipped with an integrated handle and D-rings for a shoulder strap. (optional) Also, by placing both panniers back to back, you can clip the D-rings together and carry the set of panniers with the one shoulder strap. This is ideal in airports or walking into hotels or at the office.
