I filled the pack and put it on my back, and found the flap sufficient to keep the hooks from bothering my back. The latches [in panner mode] are easily operated by means of a strap, but once on the bike rack, the hooks stay engaged until the rider unlocks them.
The first thing I love is that it's pretty big. The second thing I love is that it has great organisation. The next thing I really love about it is that it's waterproof out of the box. You don't need an additional rain cover.
Take a load off your shoulders with the Craft Cadence Pannier Backpack. Designed for your comfort and convenience, this bag is a must-have for riders who loves flexibility and options for commuting or bicycle touring. It features a seamless transition from pannier to backpack, making it the most competent partner for your rides.
We engineered this bag to be used primarily as a backpack, with the convenience of being able to operate as a pannier when required. You can completely remove the hooks for full time use as a backpack.
Comfort in backpack mode
Our unique "flap" is thickly padded to protect the wearer from mounting system while in backpack mode. In addition, when flap is pulled up, it reveals a large patch of foam padding underneath the mounting system to provide additional comfort for the lower back. The mounting system can be also removed for further comfort in backpack mode.
What’s better than one sack? Two, of course! We present a two-in-one style for your convenience. The unique “flip” mechanism allows you to easily convert the pannier to a backpack, and vice versa within seconds.
For Pannier: Tuck backpack straps into the back pocket and pull down the flap to reveal the mounting system.
For Backpack: Pull the flap up to conceal the mounting system. Pull out backpack straps from the back pocket and secure backpack straps into the lower strap buckles.
Enjoy a pain-free ride without limitations. Our pack includes a detachable laptop sleeve organiser, so you can easily store your essentials and electronics without worrying about damaging them. The water bottle holder fits standard bottles, so you can hydrate yourself on long rides and during the summer months. Additionally, the D-lock holder provides easy security for you bike at all times.
Protect your belongings in all conditions. Our pack is waterproof against all weather condition, and no "rain jacket" is necessary. This is made possible by high-quality TPU coated 600D polyester and innovative seam-welding technology. Now, you don’t have to let the weather dictate your rides.
Fits all standard rack widths
The Craft Cadence Pannier Backpack fits a wide range of rack widths, from 8-18 mm. The distance between the two mounting brackets can also be adjusted. Use the waist straps to secure the bag to the bottom of the rack.
