Product Description

The Arkel Seat Bag! It goes where no other seat bag has gone before with absolutely unprecedented and outstanding features. It is made of a four panel shell that is permanently attached with reinforced Velcro under the seat. A 100% waterproof roll-top Thermo-Guard Nylon pouch slides in and out of the shell in a jiffy. No zippers to operate. In addition to protecting the content, the shell compresses and stabilizes the pouch so that the whole bag attachment to the saddle is rock-solid. Let the downhillers put it to the test! The pouch takes 1 ¾ second to remove.

Strengths:    Very waterproof but not submersible. Easy to wash off mud with water hose due to no fabric in bag construction. No zippers to break.

Weaknesses:    Takes a few seconds longer to open due to secure clips and bag.

Bottom Line:   
This is a the perfect bag for a mountain bike. Easy clean up with no zippers to break and a near waterproof design ensures years of maintenance/headache free use.
