The Vaude Cycle 28 litre Backpack/Pannier is an incredibly versatile, practical and robust luggage solution, combining as it does a backpack and a pannier in one easy haul (or carry!) package.

In use as a pannier, the Cycle 28 is built with a sturdy tool-free rack attachment system, but unzip the pannier area, roll it into the under-bag pocket (where the pull-out rain cover is also stashed) and suddenly you have yourself a backpack, complete with straps, padded laptop compartment and back section! It’s the ideal cycle to work / walk into the office luggage solution.

The bag has a range of practical features including numerous pockets and attachment loops, helmet holder, pull-out rain cover and padded laptop sleeve - it’s a long feature list and no mistake.

    I'm not a fan of pannier bags with a messenger style shoulder strap and I'm pleased to report that this bag is perfect.
    Turning it from pannier into a backpack is a bit fiddly, but after a few attempts you will get the hang of it.
    Nice sturdy build and sensible compartment separation, great all around!
