The B26's are based on Arkel’s time tested designs. They are built with the same attention to detail, the same materials, the same quality craftsmanship and the same lifetime warranty as all Arkel bicycle panniers. But they are built in their simplest form to offer top quality Arkel bags at a very affordable price. The B-26s are equipped with a manual hook system. Made of strong aluminum, this system is easy to use and there are no plastic parts that can bend or break. Built with nothing but quality and value in mind, these bags are really an incredible buy!
Add another layer of waterproof protection, increase visibility, keep grime off your bags with an Arkel raincover.

Good construction but not as useful to us as T-28By
We own a pair of these, and a pair of T-28s, and 2 pair of T-42s. While the B-26s are put together well and would probably provide long service, they're not very useful to us, and we hardly ever use them. The lack of an outside mesh pocket is really noticeable. I don't like how the top of the panniers sag when empty (which isn't true for the T series) so I added stiffeners (in the form of angle irons) to hold up the top of each pannier. These are simple, well made panniers, and would do if you are on a budget, but I think the extra money for the T-28 is money well spent.
