Mule Pack Panniers: Bob Earl
- “molded from high-density polyethylene, the same material used to make whitewater kayaks and highway road barriers”
- “a capacity of 28 liters the streamlined design is engineered to provide safe, dry, and secure storage for all manner of gear, as well as an extra layer of protection for you and your bike”
- “Mule Pack's overlapping lid joint and marine grade EPDM gasket system keeps out rain and spray”
- “the contoured top of the Mule Pack adds strength and provides a more secure surface to strap on a tent, sleeping bag, or other items you need to carry”
- “no paint or coating to worry about scratching or flaking off”
- “hardware is marine grade stainless steel”
- “bracket mounting system works with most of the popular side rack systems”
- “Securing and removing the Mule Pack is as simple as tightening or loosening two large hand knobs located inside the box. This feature along with lockable lid latches keeps your gear safe and secure.”
