Swanky Backpack Panniers

The Wayside Backpack Can Be Attached To Your Bike Rack For Long Rides

— August 16, 2016 — Art & Design
The Wayside Backpack Pannier is a multipurpose backpack that seamlessly fuses the best features of conventional duffle bags with the unbeatable utility of bicycle panniers.

The issue with backpacks is that they can sometimes get uncomfortable if you're cycling long distances -- nobody wants to alight from their backpack and have a bag-shaped sweat stain on their back. The Wayside Backpack Pannier helps prevent this ignominy with minimal hassle. Its straps easily fold into a zippered pouch that keeps them in place without any wrinkling. At this point, you can use the bag's webbing feature and a secure hook-and-loop mechanism to attach it to your bicycle rack. This attachment system doesn't require you to carry any tools, and is compatible with most bike racks. Once you get to your destination, you can detach the Wayside from your bicycle, unveil the straps and get going with your day.

As far as storage is concerned, the Wayside Backpack Pannier offers truly flexible function. An expandable design ensures that the bag remains compact when empty or scarcely occupied, but expands to become more voluminous if you decide to shove a whole bunch of cargo in there. A laptop sleeve keeps your precious machine safe and sound, while external pockets allow you to store and organize smaller items.

The big advantage with the Wayside Backpack Pannier is that it doesn't require you to use regular bike baskets and panniers that look rather dated and aren't nearly secure. By combining backpack and pannier functionality in one package, the Wayside bag ensures maximum comfort and eye-catching style. Sturdy, stylish and versatile, this backpack pannier is perfectly designed for the cycling-centric modern urbanite.
