Designed as front panniers to compliment the GT-54s, the GT-18s exemplify Arkel's commitment to quality and functionality. The rectangular shape offers the most versatility in terms of 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. The GT-18s come with a fully waterproof integrated liner bag inside the main compartment.

We decided to get the Arkel for our tandem because they were front loaders, and my husband didn't trust a completely water proof bag because of the bath tub effect. Lets face it, in a down poor, water will get in, and never get out! GT-18 for the front, and the G-54 for the rear, and the small handle bar bag. My only regret was we didn't get the GT-18BP, they work like a back pack when not on the bike. They were fabulous in every way. Easy to put on, and take off, kept out things very organised too. We got the rain covers as well, which I can attest to being rain proof! Our during our 71 day tour through Europe in September we had plenty of rain, wind, frost, and sun. They held up like champs, came home still looking new.
