Arkel GT-18BP (backpack)
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 the GT-54 for fully loaded touring, the GT-18s 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-18s as rear panniers. As with the GT-54s, the GT-18s 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-18s to form a pair, or one regular and one backpack or 2 backpacks. Talk about versatility!!
