ARKEL RT60 – Review
PROS: This model was designed in shape and size to fit a recumbent trike. The fabrics used are strong Cordura, huge YKK zippers, very easy to grip. I did find very useful and handy the distribution of several pocket’s that this model comes with (the main difference with Orlieb ). The big capacity of each pannier allowed me to storage 70% of all my gear.Bright yellow colour and many reflective straps will make you visible on the roads, which I believe is crucial in cycle touring.

CONS: Expensive (in Europe the VAT taxes are huge for items imported from Canada). It is NOT waterproof, and you need to buy separate rain covers, which are quite fragile on a long term.
