A few of my panniers weren't meeting my stringent criteria for reflectiveness and I wanted to add reflective tape to the sides. Sewing them on or using iron-on reflective tape wasn't feasible if I wanted undamaged panniers.
I was in the midst of hunting for an epoxy/glue/adhesive product for this purpose, but I decided to ask Marko what he used to add his reflective material to his red handmade pannier.
He told me he had used double-sided carpet tape.
So, I scampered off to Home Depot and picked up a roll of the stuff. It is very sticky.

Here's the same pannier with reflective strips added to the side with the double-sided tape.

I did the same with my Banjo Brothers pannier.
