Designed from the ground up, the D’Addario Backline Gear Transport Pack is the ultimate solution for players on the move. With more than eight specialized storage and transport compartments built into it, the Gear Transport Pack makes transporting everything to your gig––while keeping it safe––painless and intuitive. Its heavy construction, water-resistant zippers, and comfort-padded contact points mean you can arrive confident, comfortable, and ready to play.
What Fits in the D'Addario Backline GTP?
Mic, power, and instrument cables The Backline's lower outer compartment features six modular partitions to keep all your cables neat and accessible. No more digging through a suitcase to find that TRS cable or IEC.
String changes and setup tools The 8" x 11" accessory compartment gives you three 5" pockets for packs of guitar strings, a full-width pouch for bass strings and essentials, and several slim upright pockets that are perfect for screwdrivers, hex keys, clippers, capos — even a Sharpie or two for the merch table.
Pedals, DIs, and power strips The Backline's 5-1/2" x 13" head pack handily fits 3–5 of your favorite effect and tuner stomps. Lifting the shelf reveals another modular-partition storage area that's great for DI boxes, power strips, and more.
Amp and vocal microphones Whether you're a coffee shop singer-songwriter or you've got an extra-special amp mic you just can't gig without, the Backline GTP has you covered for mic storage. On the interior side of the 8" x 11" upper compartment you'll find three 3.5" sleeves for keeping your stage mics safe and secure. You also get a full-width inner pouch for keeping a wireless handheld or a couple of inline mic pres safe on hand.
Mic and tripod stands That's right — the Backline even has storage for your mic stands and camera tripods. Heavy-duty side buckles allow you to lock in and cinch up your favorite stage stands for secure on-the-go pack-ins.
Liquid refreshment Two "saddlebag" 7.5" x 12.5" outer pouches make the perfect holsters for water and pop bottles. Bonus: a bottle opener on the left strap means you can crack open a cold one on your walk out to the car.
Laptops and tablets — all of them Let's say you run backing tracks from your laptop and virtual instruments from your iPad. Maybe you've even got a dedicated tablet for communicating with a wireless mixer. The Backline GTP still lets you load in on the same trip. A 12" x 20" security pocket, which faces inward as you wear it for theft prevention, features a custom sleeve for a large laptop (up to 15") and two accessory sleeves to hold common sizes of tablets. Not only does the inward-facing sleeve keep your gear secure, it keeps it stable as well, distributing weight close to the body for greater stability and ergonomics.
Weighs next to nothing — Wearing an unloaded Backline GTP almost feels like you're wearing nothing at all. Ergonomic and adjustable — The Backline has been designed to keep gear close to the body for a comfortable carry-in. The strap adjustments particularly impressed us; cinching up, you can really sense the quality of materials and craftsmanship with which this pack was made. Vented back cushions — Cushions that cradle your back contained within a breathable vent mesh material reduce fatigue and keep you comfy in transit. Water-resistant compartments —You don't have to worry about inclement weather ruining your day. The Backline GTP features waterproof zippers to help keep moisture out of your exterior gear pockets. Holds just about all you need — At the end of the day, a backpack is only as useful as the gear it can haul. If you're a gigging guitarist, bass player, or acoustic singer-songwriter, the Backline GTP can dramatically reduce your haul-in, setup, and pack-out times by keeping all your essentials exactly where you need them.
