ARKELGT-18-BP BACKPACK PANNIER
The GT-18-BP is the Backpack version of the excellent 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 for fully loaded touring or if you are just going across town instead of across the continent, you can also use the GT-18’s as rear panniers.
The GT-18-BP's rectangular shape offers the most versatility in terms of capacity and has 2 large compartments with a fully waterproof integrated and stow able liner bag inside the main compartment. The exterior mesh pocket is great for stashing that rain jacket after a summer shower. Sold 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!
