Amazing bag and wonderful customer service!

I originally bought the smaller version of this bag and used it for two years with near-complete satisfaction. It was super functional for my commute and workday, amazing for all weather, easy to use the pannier mechanism, and very comfortable on my back.

Some holes sprouted up in the interior and exterior mesh fabric so I contacted TwoWheelGear customer service to inquire about exercising the product warranty. They were extremely receptive and even let me upgrade to the larger version of the bag by paying the difference in price! The new version of the bag seems even better than the previous version!

My only suggestions for the bag would be to construct the interior pockets out of something other than mesh to allow them not to develop holes as easily, and perhaps add more exterior pockets to allow for easier access to more things. Maybe a bottom pocket to easily store rain gear and/or the bag cover?

Thanks TwoWheelGear!

Thanks for the great review and compliments Joshua! We appreciate the feedback and will pass those suggestions along to our design team. Thanks for riding with us and spreading the good word! All the best!

Excellent Product

So far, the bag feels very sturdy and holds up well. The attachment mechanism seems secure. Overall a game changer for my commute and I would recommend this to anyone.

I worry slightly that folding the back panel over and over again will mean it will have wear and tear over time. The side pouches are a bit too small for a water bottle.

Thanks P.K. We appreciate you taking the time to provide your review!. The side pouches should definitely be able to fit your water bottle. Not sure what size of water bottle you are using but those stretch out and easily fit most bottles.

Solid pannier, but not perfect

I've been using this bag for two weeks for commuting at the time of writing. Overall, I am pleased with my purchase, but there are some improvements that could be made:

-Sturdy, tough fabric
-Dedicated laptop pocket
-Convertible between backpack and pannier
-TONS of space

-No separate pocket for shoes
-No lanyard / clip for keys inside the bag
-Conversion is easy, but not doable on the fly (e.g., to quickly get through a turnstyle or onto a train).

Thanks C.D. We appreciate the feedback. There is a lanyard/key clip inside the front pocket (where the rain cover is located). You will get faster at the conversion the more you use the bag. Should be about 10 seconds or less once your a pro. Appreciate you riding with us. All the best!

Amazing Packback

I have been loving my packback for a week now running it on my daily commute. I can confirm the rain cover works well too

Awesome to hear N.G. Thanks so much! Super happy you are loving the bag!

It does convert from pannier to backpack!

The product fulfills its main advertised function; that is, turning easily from a backpack into a bike pannier. However, that is the limit of its convenience. As a backpack, it is rather unstable and never stands straight. It is difficult to keep it open as it deforms readily and always falls on one side. As a pannier, it holds steady to the bike rack, but it also gathers a lot of dust and dirt. The waterproof cover included is worst, though, it barely covers the right spots and has an extra-long elastic band that gets jammed in the gears and quickly becomes a hazard. I feel the design of this product is GOOD enough and that's it. For the price, unfortunately, I was not impressed.
