BackPack Pannier Combo?
Has anybody every used the Nashbar Pank n' Pannier? I want to do squeeze some modest touring in Belgium and the Netherlands during a free week this Fall, and envison taking a train to different cities and renting a mountain bike with a rack and carrying a pretty small load betweent the pack and a handlebar bag. Plus I am going to start commuting to work on my mountain bike and need to carry just a small laptop and lunch, and will carry the pack a short distance from my bike to my office.
I am sure it will be not be a great back pack or pannier, but I like being able to carry it as a backpack when not on the bike. It is not terribly expensive, and seems worth checking out. Any advice or suggestions will be appreciated
It's total rubbish. Check out this thread for more info:
Try Panpack www.panpack.com : I have the daypack low rider version. It's very well made and the rucksack it forms if very strong.
I got it to go with a Ritchey folding bike. Here are some more details panpack.pdf
