Best flexible solar panels on the market?

Looking for advice as to which flexible solar panels are the best quality and value on the market.

I know that solid panels are more efficient and last longer. Unfortunately I need to put some panels in an area that might need walking on every now and again.

I am looking at the Renogy 175w panels, but curious if there are other better options.

Re: Best flexible solar panels on the market?

We have a 175W flexible Renogy panel that was mounted on our Bimini. It is well made. We were happy with its output, but I don't know how well it would hold up to being stepped on. I have since replaced it with two Renogy 175W solid panels.Click image for larger version

Thanks for all the suggestions ����keep them coming, always good to get input from people with experience.

I see the Renogy panels have a textured surface, doubles as antiskid and supposedly reflects more light at lower sun angles onto the panels.

After some more research, it looks like Solbian is a high quality product.

This is one outlet for the Sunman eArc panels which seem pretty good.
