If you’re a bicycle commuter using panniers day-to-day, you’re probably well-aware of their convenience on the bike and the often-forgotten inconvenience off the bike. Panniers are great, but many of them are only designed to sit on your rack and not function as a standalone bag. Don’t get me wrong, I know there are some out there that can also function as a backpack, but the latest pannier/backpack release from North St. Bags nails it.
I’d like to plug The Morrison waterproof pannier / backpack combo from North St. Bags. Made-to-order from Portland, OR, this pannier/backpack combo is just as at home on your rack or your back. From $189 and up, you’ll get a handmade CORDURA pannier that doubles as a backpack with a lifetime warranty; pretty good if you ask me.
