So you’ve been using your Arkel panniers for a while now and noticed that water doesn’t bead anymore and seeps into the fabric, consequently making your panniers soggy and heavy. This simply means that the original water repellency treatment is worn out and needs to be refreshed.

The fabrics used to make our panniers are factory treated with a DRW (durable water repellent) treatment that prevents the fabric from absorbing water. With time, the DRW wears off and the fabric will start to wick moisture.

When this happens, its time to revitalized the water repellency of the bag.

To keep your panniers looking and performing like new, we recommend “Nikwax Tent and Gear Solarproof”. We’ve used it ourselves with great results. Nikwax Tent and Gear Solarproof is a water base spray-on waterproofing and UV blocker that is very easy to apply. Simply wet your pannier and spray the Nikwax Tent and Gear Solarproof evenly on the wet pannier. Wait a few minutes, remove the surplus with a damp cloth and hang to dry.

After you have applied the Nikwax Tent and Gear Solarproof waterproofing treatment, water will bead again and roll off the fabric, preventing it from being absorbed into the fibers of the fabric. Dirt and stains will be easier to remove.

Benefits

  • Maintains the water repellency of you panniers
  • Protects the fabric against UV degradation
  • One application can double the effective life of gear
  • Gear dries quickly for packing away
  • Easy to use
