Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect option I bought this bag because I was tired of having a sweaty back on my way into work, but still wanted a should strap to carry it around the hospital, which most panniers lack. It feels just as sturdy as any pannier, but has should straps and is extremely comfortable to wear on my shoulders. The only flaw is the straps are designed to be removed before attaching to your bike which is a real hassle. I have taken to just stuffing the straps behind the backpad, but I have been careless a couple of times and the straps have fallen out and gotten got in the chain. Having some way to wrap up the straps would be ideal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Transformation into a backpack is simple and easy! If you're planning on touring or taking a flight with your bike in a box, being able to take a pannier on as a carry-on item comfortably is a boon (having done this multiple times with ordinary ortlieb panniers). The backpack straps fit on super quickly and the back "pads" (they're not pads - they're very hard - maybe they have to be to maintain the shape and back support?) are somewhat comfortable... I wouldn't want to be carrying this for a long time. I tried riding with it on my back for a few blocks and it was digging right into the base of my spine - but I guess the portability is for short durations. Other than the lack of any padding on the back, the price point is also pretty high, hence the 4 stars. As a pannier, it fits nicely. I was skeptical of the elasticated strap to hold it tight to the bike at the base but it has held up so far and isn't a PITA to hook on and off in the way that I presumed it would be when I saw it. As far as the front holding pouch for the back straps, it's perfect and super useful. The internal storage is good and the velcro top strap much nicer than the usual plastic clasp straps - ALTHOUGH its doesn't really permit any over-filling as the straps and clasps definitely did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and durable Highly recommend this pannier. I love the materials which inspire confidence when things get a little rough and/ or rainy in the Pacific NW. Great form, great function.

Does it strap on like a backpack as is or do I need to buy an additional system?

Asked by: Alli
Hey there Alli, thanks for the question! So sorry for the slight delay here, this is just the backpack itself and does not come with the framework to attach it to your bike as a pannier pack. I hope this helps!
