The FACTS About Arkel's Waterproofing Systems:
Arkel offers form, function, accessibility and THREE layers of waterproof protection.
Layer 1 Protection:
Our bags start with coated Cordura; a durable, water repellent American-made fabric, nearly impossible to rip or tear, that keeps water out! The same hydrophobic finish used on world-class tents and expedition gear. Water beads up and rolls off, but our coating doesn't close the tiny spaces between fibers, so condensation won't build up inside the bag. Great protection during showers, commutes, and regular rain rides.
Layer 2 Protection:
Our rain covers prevent seepage at seams and along zippers during extended rides or whenever you choose to cover and go. They slip on in seconds, protect the entire bag, and store easy right in the bag.
Layer 3 Protection:
Now when you think of ANY Arkel Bag, think layer upon layer of waterproof protection!
