Designed as front panniers to compliment our GT-54 for fully loaded touring, the GT-18’s exemplify Arkel's commitment to quality and functionality. The rectangular shape offers the most versatility in terms of lodging capacity. The exterior mesh pocket is great for stashing that rain jacket after a summer shower, and if you are just going across town instead of across the continent, you can also use the GT-18’s as rear panniers. As with the GT-54’s, the GT-18’s come with a fully waterproof integrated liner bag inside the main compartment. The GT-18 is sold as single units (and not as a pair) so you can decide if you want 2 regular GT-18’s to form a pair, or one regular and one backpack or 2 backpacks. Talk about versatility and style, the GT-18’s are at the top of their class.

I purchased a pair for light touring. These bags are spacious and strong. The design allows for a lot of expansion. I rode for a couple of days in heavy rain and everything inside the liner stayed dry. These bags also dry quickly so gear outside the liner does not stay wet. I use 4 zip-ties to connect the panniers so that they count as only one piece of luggage when traveling by plane, bus, train, etc.
