Delivery & Returns

The Vaude Cycle 22 litre Backpack/Pannier is incredibly versatile, practical and robust, combining as it does a backpack and a pannier in one easy haul (or carry!) package.

In pannier mode, the Cycle 22 is built with a sturdy rack attachment system, but unzip the pannier area, roll it into the under-bag pocket (where the rain cover is also stashed) and suddenly you have yourself a backpack, complete with padded straps and padded back section! It’s the ideal cycle to work - walk into the office luggage solution.

The bag has a range of practical features including numerous pockets and attachment loops, helmet holder, pull-out rain cover and padded laptop sleeve - it’s a long feature list and no mistake.

If you are after something a little larger the Vaude Cycle 28 offers an extra six litres of capacity.

    I've given this two stars because I feel it falls short of being a good hybrid back-pannier bag, which leaves it without much of a purpose. Once converted to a backpack it's OK (maybe 3-4 out of 5 as a backpack). It's small, but that's fine. What's not fine, is the size of the storage compartment to tuck away the pannier clips... it's just not big enough (even when turning the bag upside down and shaking all of the contents away from the pouch). This means a bit of a battle to convert it to a backpack.

    As a pannier bag, it's dreadful. The lower clip relies on you having a horizontal cross piece at the bottom of the pannier rack. Because the bag is so long, it also relies on the rack keeping it away from the mechanics. I have an IGH with SJS' expedition pannier rack and so I consider the actual amount of mechanics to be quite compact but the waterproof cover covered itself in gunk so much in one use I've had to stick to putting the bag on the side away from the chain. Then there's the bottom clip itself. Small, fiddly, and not very good. The top clips are OK then, using a similar mechanism to Ortlieb's.

    Good points are: the bag construction is the typical high standard one would expect from Vaude. The pockets feel about the right quantity and sizing for this kind of bag. In the main section, my 14-inch Lenovo T460 fits comfortably in the laptop divider which has a suitable amount of padding.

    All in all, this WOULD be a clear 5/5 if they had spent a bit more effort on the conversion mechanism. But as it stands, there are better pannier bags, and better backpacks for similar prices which generally speaking I think most people would be better off with. I would add, I think this problem affects most of the convertible pannier-back bags available at the moment. Maybe in a few years someone will finally design a decent convertible!
