EXFIL-48 Backpack Black



Like all EXFIL gear, the 48 was designed by bikeriders for bikeriders. Features include compression straps that do double duty as mounting straps, so you can fasten your backpack to the sissy bar to give your shoulders a break on long rides. Packed with enough storage capacity to gobble up 48 12-ounce cans of your favorite barley pop.

    Form and Function

    We invested many hours of R&D on this EXFIL unit; we wanted our first backpack to be the last one you ever need. One main and two secondary compartments hold 48 12-ounce beverage cans—that's two cases of cold beer to get the party started if that's your mission. The lower secondary zipper compartment has a PVC-treated tool caddy and an internal zipper pouch to hold wrenches and small gear securely. The top secondary compartment houses an internal zipper pouch, and all three compartments have hi-vis orange nylon lining to make spotting contents easy. The padded shoulder straps feature an adjustable sternum strap to stabilize heavy loads. Cinch straps around EXFIL-48's perimeter do two things: compress loads for greater stability, and fasten the bag to your sissy bar when it's time to hit the highway.

    So solid

    This bag is perfect. The right size for across town or a few nights away. The layout of the compartments organizes everything you’d need/want to take with you on a ride. I looking forward to more purchases with Biltwell after this choice.

    Finding storage

    Pretty good. Still getting used to it. Thought it would be bigger. But if I figure out the pockets better I can find more space. Like the buckles tho to quickly click on my sissy bar and not need bungee cords or to tie up a bag.

    Perfect 1-3 camping bag

    This was one my best grabs in some time. Has all the darn pockets ya need and enough space for 1-3 day camp out, holds your tent, roll, tools, gun her toys, and camera gear all in this compact bag. Rad design and solid when on sissy bar

    Another amazing beer case...

    Kidding, although I love that you guys rate them by how many beer cans they hold.. Another great bag from Biltwell. I can't wait to get this one on the road. if it holds up like its bigger brother (that I have put loads of miles on already) then I will be a happy biker. Some of the subtle things they have done make this the best backpack I have ever thrown over my shoulder. Highly recommend it and check out my adventures with it on insta at HardtailGarage.
