Is it a backpack or a pannier? Yes.

If you are looking for a commuter pannier that you can also throw over their back, this is it. Holds 28 liters of cargo, including your your 15.6-inch (or smaller) laptop, keeping it safe and dry. Mounts to your rear rack with one easy click.

When you carry this into your destination, it doesn’t advertise that you arrived by bike — you get to decide whether or not to boast about that. The stowable attachment system gives you the best of both worlds, making it easy to switch between backpack and pannier modes. The side compression straps cut down on extra bulk while walking or riding.

Weeks after using the bag, you’ll still be discovering features.

Vaude Cycle 28 Backpack/Rear Pannier

This is a well-designed product that works well in both modes: backpack and pannier. The features are abundant and thoughtful. Highly recommended!

Vaude Cycle 28 Backpack/Rear Pannier

I bought this backpack/pannie-r a couple of weeks ago. I am not one to write reviews very often, but this deserves one. So far it has been nothing but a joy. It works close enough to perfect as both a backpack and as a pannier. If I was to point out any weaknesses, it would be the pannier stowe-away pocket, which is closed with velcro, I suspect, but hope that I am wrong, that it might wear out fairly quickly when used on a daily basis. Other than that it is the highest quality workmanship on any item I have bought in a long time. I am very pleased with it so far.
