Harvey Botzman
Commuter, everyday, & weekend backpack pannier

This pannier is ideal for commuting to work, utilitarian (e. g., grocery shopping) errands, and even a weekend bike tour.

It is well made; the backpack straps hide away nicely; the upper rack attachments don't cut into my upper back; it is water resistant & a rain cover is included. The description of the 22L Pannier Backpack Convertible 2.0 Lite is accurate.

If I still worked (I'm retired but do lots of bicycle advocacy stuff) I'd use this pannier every day.

Amazing Harvey! Thanks for taking the time to leave your review! Great to hear that excellent feedback from such a an experienced cyclist! We are happy to have you riding with us! All the best!

Elisa Gaytan

Spacious!! Versatile!!! I little awkward for 5'5" people when wearing as a backpack but you get used to us.

Thanks for the feedback Elisa! Hopefully you can adjust those straps a bit and get it working great for you! All the best!

Solid pack with a minor issue

This pannier is solid - it secures to the rack effortlessly. My only quibble is that the convertible back straps occupy a significant volume of the whole pack when stowed - part of the deal with a convertible pannier.

Yep, fair enough Peter. But when in Backpack Mode, you can use that space where the backpack straps go. Especially when doing something like travelling. I put my notebook and magazines back in the pannier/pocket space. It comes in handy but understand that when in Pannier mode, that space gets eaten up. All the best!

Became my primary backpack overall

This is a great backpack for cycling, but not only. After 5 years, it's essentially my only bag for everyday life (you don't want to move stuff around your bags depending on whether you're cycling that day). I even fly with it now, because it passes for a 'small cabin bag' per European lowcoster regs. It's usually enough for a weekend city break on its own, and even if I'm splashing on a cabin suitcase, I still take it for easy access stuff.

Thanks Rusty! You sound like the James Bond of commuters! We are proud to be along your adventures. Thanks for riding with us and taking the time to review the gear! All the best!
