    Arkel Dolphin 48 waterproof panniers

    Hello all, does anyone have any fully-loaded touring experience with Arkel's Dolphin line of waterproof panniers? Just curious, I don't find anything on these forums, nor much internet chatter about them.

    Thanks,
    Brian

    They are a very new item, so I doubt there are any yet on the road.

    Wow. Those are kind of cool. To think I was ready to snag some Ortliebs this year to complement my Arkel (non waterproof) GT18 I use on the front! Hmmmmmm.........

    Yeah, I'm in the same boat. Was ready to pull the trigger on Ortlieb's Bikepacker Plus when I noticed these on Arkel's website. They look pretty comparable with the added bonus of the diagonal zipper opening, a couple more mesh pockets, and a zippered waterproof pocket (instead of Ortlieb's bolt-on, drybag style pockets). Hmm... decisions...
