So far, so good

I've had this for about 6 weeks now, using it on my gravel bike commute to work which is over 10 miles each way and on a mix of road, offroad and cycle path. Things i like about it - it really is easy and quick to change it from backpack to pannier, there are good internal pockets, the capacity is pretty good and i can fit in waterproof trousers, laptop, chargers and notepads, breakfast and lunch, snacks, lights and other bits and bobs with usually some space for other things. There are two twizly things that help keep the bag on the bike. If you can't twizzle them, it means the bag is not attached properly. So far, it has always stayed attached. It is also comfortable enough as a backpack. Not so good - it feels like the shape is made from something quite insubstantial like cardboard which does bend. It can also make it harder to get it to clip on properly to the pannier rack. Also, the way the bag is split means you can't carry anything particularly large as each section is pretty shallow. Also, id prefer if the outer pocket had a horizontal zip rather than a verrtical one. It has a couple of small reflective areas, but more would be better for night visibility. I don't know yet how well the waterproofing system works, amazingly its been dry on all my rides so far. Overall i'm happy with it and would recommend. It is much more secure than my previous backpack pannier, and much easier to attach and detach, even with its imperfections. I'd like the option of some other colours!

This is a quality well made item which is perfect for commuting or days out rather than multi day touring. I immediately put it to use on a short break to France where our main luggage was transferred by the organiser and it was perfect. Stable on the bike and comfortable on your back when walking around at places of interest en-Route it contained all we needed for a day out .

Absolute best for commuting!

I have had this pannier backpack for over 6 months and I use it for my 35min commute to work everyday. Fantastic product! It is big enough for my laptop, over-ear headphones, a change of clothes, lunch, and all the extras with its compartments and pockets. It is also big enough for groceries. It clips in very nicely and easily on my rack, and when it rains I just put on the waterproof cover which is also easy to use and removable. It is comfortable as a backpack and it does not get your back dirty unlike other backpack-style panniers. Get it, you won't regret it.

Best bag pack/pannier available

Only recently bought it, but surprised by the good quality. The system is super easy and works v well. Good pockets. I’ve been looking all over for a pannier/backpack and this is by a distance the best thing I could find.

Great piece of kit

This is a good quality backpack pannier. Fitting is simple, easy and secure. Can be removed in seconds and is a comfortable backpack. Surprisingly spacious with plenty of pockets. Fits my Cube E-bike perfectly.

Fantastic for commuting!

I purchased this to use when commuting to replace my old fashioned single panniers which were a real pain to carry around. It did not disappoint! Really sturdy zip which joins the two halves of the rucksack with heavy duty clips to attach to the pannier rack and a catch that flips out to prevent it from jumping off the rack when you're riding. My only down side for this rucksack is the capacity - it's a bit smaller than my regular rucksack so you're a little limited with what you could fit in there. I usually manage my laptop/charger, notebook, lunch and water bottle and that's about the limit of the capacity.

Great design

Clips on and off relatively easily. Haven’t tested it in rain. Would be nice if they did this in several sizes

One of the best decisions I’ve ever made!

I finally fitted a rack to my back after getting more and more shoulder problems from lugging around a rucksack for years. It’s amazing…does exactly what I need. It looks great, has just about enough space for my kit, trainers, laptop and other work stuff including lunch. It fits really well to the bike, really secure as long as you make sure to click it down fully on both sides. The waterproof cover works well, and the fact that bottom and sides are waterproof anyway really helps for day-to-day splashes. I absolutely love the fact you just whip it off the bike, do the zip up, and it becomes a rucksack! I really do recommend this, it has changed my life!

Great backpack and pannier

Really useful bit of kit - nice rucksack which carries a laptop and files - easily converts to a pannier and has a rain cover stored in a pocket - really clever design and very practical

Came off my bike lost everything

I've used this twice. Lovely design but the clips must have been faulty because despite putting it in the correct position the whole bag fell off whilst I was cycling and I've lost everything including a new macbook. Devastated.

Plenty of space

Great little bag

Perfect for my commute to work, stores my 15" MacBook and a few other bits no problem, fits my pannier frame well. Good quality material too. My only wish is that they made a slightly larger version.

Game changer

Absolutely love this rucksack, such a game changer and makes commuting so much easier. Very easy to use and worth the money. Highly recommend.

GREAT. Does the job

I have been using this bag for about a year now on a once or twice weekly commute of 8 miles. I love the fact that it looks like a normal backpack but is really well thought through for a pannier bag. I carry laptop - sometimes two, cables/chargers, (Scrub top and trousers), spare shoes, lunchbox and drink bottle. It couldn't manage much more! Improvements - maybe covered zips for light showers (though there is an integral bright yellow rain cover it's a bit fiddly). Also would prefer the front zip to be horizontal rather than vertical (just in case I forget to do it up). Overall, its going strong but if it gives up I would buy another.

best rucksack for the bike

simply amazing
