The GT-18BP is the Backpack version of the regular GT-18. Perfect for the bike and hike trip, for the evening stroll in the park or as airplane carry-on, the GT-18BP is an outstanding multi-use bag. Designed as front panniers to compliment our GT-54 for fully loaded touring, the GT-18’s Backpack 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-18BP come as single unit (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!
Add another layer of waterproof protection, increase visibility, keep grime off your bags with an Arkel raincover.
