Pannier Convertible Backpack Review – The ONLY Bag You’ll Need This Summer

The Pannier Convertible Backpack was sent to us for free to review. It in no way shapes our opinion of it, and we were not paid for this article.

The Pannier Convertible Backpack is a total game changer for anyone who bikes and even for those that would rather leave the wheels behind when it comes to their hiking. With a bad ass arsenal of features, this backpack will be your best friend on the go. It’s made by Two Wheel Gear, so for more product info check here.

Pannier Convertible Backpack Review

We took the Pannier Convertible Backpack out for a spin on our hike to Anna Ruby Falls Georgia on Mother’s Day. And while it is great for outdoorsy adventures, don’t let it fool you! This lumberjack of a backpack can also settle for a nice Big City View. Not only does the graphite gray color hide dirt from the bike trails, it also goes great with Windy City fashion and Big Apple suits.

This backpack is made to easily transition from bike pannier to backpack in a quick and easy motion. While we didn’t bring bikes along on our journey, the functionality of having the option to transition is great for commuters and bike riders.

We both really loved the backpack and as you can tell, it fits just about anyone from little travelers to adult. With plenty of room for snacks and 2 water bottle pockets, we made sure to have a picnic while we took in the views of the falls.

Over all, we really love the Pannier Convertible Backpack! It is one of those pieces that you can use for multiple things, from hiking to carry on it is pretty versatile and will quickly become a favorite. We just wish it was a little easier to unzip but with all its pockets and waterproof superpower to fight away the wetness, it’s something we can look past. Whether you’re an urban rider or an outdoor hiker the Pannier Convertible Backpack is a must have for this summers adventuring. We give it a smile and two thumbs up, especially with the reflectors for safety!

And a special bonus! I just discovered that it fits the “Bare Fare” bag size. If you ever fly on Spirit Air then you know the Bare Fare is the cheapest. The sucky part is you have to pay extra for a carry-on. They do however allow one personal item which fits the Pannier Backpack dimensions! Score!
