Nitecore have made a name for themselves with years’ worth of covering your flashlight bases, but the reach of their products has made its way into many aspects of EDC. Their latest project is a collaboration with indie bagmaker Lii Gear, designing the BP18 as a versatile commuter and overnighter backpack. With plenty of unique features and even multiple ways to carry, the BP18 is a fresh and flexible option for your everyday carry needs.

As its name suggests, the BP18 features 18L of capacity divided into its main compartment, a water bottle pocket, and a front compartment meant for smaller essentials. The main compartment offers the best of both worlds, able to open from the top for quick access or via a dual-zippered full frontal opening for ease of ambidextrous loading and unloading. Inside you get a padded laptop/tablet compartment able to fit a device up to 14“, dual side compartments for smaller gadgets like a phone charger, and even a  hook and loop surface for attaching modular extensions on the front panel’s interior.

The BP18’s front section is covered with MOLLE-compatible webbing so you can attach your favorite expansions or accessories. You’ll also find attachment points on the surface of the shoulder straps. These adjustable shoulder straps feature a unique quick-release system, allowing for removal or even conversion into a single strap so you can use the BP18 as a sling for lighter loads. And for heavier loads, they also come with a sternum strap for better weight distribution.

Speaking of carrying weight, another unique feature on the BP18 is the rear panel’s “fishbone” system, a series of raised mesh sections that create airflow and padding against your back. These offer an ergonomic solution with fewer and softer contact points for when you’re carrying a full pack.

Rounding out the BP18’s features is wearproof 500D nylon exterior construction with water- and dirt-resistant coating, accented in Nitecore's signature yellow. A reinforced polyester top handle also offers an easy grab-and-go solution when you’re on the move. You also get YKK zippers and Duraflex buckles for a premium hardware ensemble.

The Nitecore BP18 is an interesting new hybrid pack that offers multi-functional solutions for multi-purpose EDC needs. Learn more at the link below, and we’ll be updating this post as more retailers offer it up for sale.
