The Banjo Brothers did it again with the good-lookin' and affordable Canvas and Leather Cycling Rucksack. Designed by cyclists for cyclists this bag has everything you want and nothing you don't. Just a kiss of leather (Sorry Vegans!). The compact design is intended to fit more comfortably on smaller torsos, but there is enough adjustability to accommodate larger torsos as well.
Is it 100% waterproof -- no. But, the bag is sewn such that the inside pockets have no seams to the exterior. So if you get caught in the rain, the contents will stay dry, unless you plan to stay outside and ride through puddles for a couple of hours.
- Waxed canvas water-resistant exterior
- Compact design to fit smaller torsos
- Side pockets for lock and bottle
- Wide interior pocket
Banjo Brothers' Metro Backpack is ready to roll everywhere, everyday, in every weather. Its tough-as-nails outer shell is made from 18-ounce tarp vinyl with a rain-shedding hanging liner. Wide, padded straps distribute weight comfortably on the bike or off, while chest and waist straps add stability. It sits low on the back to reduce blind spots. And, there are 12, count 'em: 12 pockets, a 10x15-inch padded laptop sleeve, a shoulder-strap-mounted phone holder, a large reflective stripe, and a blinkie tab.
Banjo Brothers makes the Commuter Backpack for riders who go out everyday, in any weather. Its roll-top outer is made from ballistic nylon with a welded-seam liner that's utterly waterproof. Wide, padded straps evenly distribute weight comfortably on the bike or off, while chest and waist straps add stability. It sits low on the back to reduce blind spots. And, there are two quick-access side pockets, organizing pockets, a shoulder-strap-mounted phone holder, large reflective stripes, and a taillight tab.
A versatile roll-top waterproof pannier that easily and quickly converts to a backpack. The pannier hooks end up opposite the rider's back, making the backpack more comfortable. Fits laptops around 15".
How does it work? Remove the pannier from the bike. Unhook the panniers main flap and reverse it over the pannier hooks and use the side-release buckles to secure it in place. Backpack straps will be revealed. Put the backpack straps over your shoulders, adjust and you're ready to go.
