18 litre Convertible Roll Top Pannier Backpack – Black Cordura, Black Tarp, Black Bridle Leather

An extremely versatile and spacious convertible pannier backpack. Ideal for urban commuting, as a larger daypack and a computer bag large enough to fit a 15” laptop.

As a pannier, the bag securely attaches to a rear luggage rack with a pair of coated adjustable stainless steel hooks.

Quickly convert the bag to a backpack with twin removable and adjustable 40mm webbing shoulder straps, which can be conveniently stowed in the bag’s front pocket when attached to your bike.  This bag also cleverly converts to a shoulder bag by attaching one of the shoulder straps to the top 2 D rings

The body fabric has a high tensile strength, can withstand long term wear and tear, is scuff and abrasive resistant and extremely water repellent. The bag is weatherproof and designed to be used all year round on and off your bike.

Coated stainless steel pannier rack clip attachments:

This bag is fitted with coated stainless steel clips designed to fit cycle rack tubing up to 12mm in diameter (most racks).

The hooks can be adjusted inwards (or outwards) if required. Please note, if using hooks on tubing thinner than 8mm, the hooks can be closed by 1 to 2mm with a pair of pliers to ensure hooks snap securely onto your luggage rack. 

If your rack tubing is 8mm -12mm, the first couple of fits when new may be tight but the hook will adjust to fit your rack.

(NB If changing your rack from thicker to thinner tubing, the hooks will need to be adjusted inwards / tightened with a pair of pliers to fit)
