Designed for those picking up groceries and carrying bulky items on their bike, the Ortlieb Trunk Bag RC replaces your traditional pannier or commuter pack by attaching to a rear-mounted rack. Ortleib's Rack-Lock system attaches to practicably any rear-mounted bike rack on the market, ranging from 2. 4 to 6. 3 inches across. Ortlieb claims it'll carry up to 22 pounds, so you can use the Trunk Bag RC on bike touring adventures and everyday rides to pick up your groceries. It's designed to be impervious to heavy downpours and road spray with its waterproof fabric and roll-top closure, meaning your precious items won't become ruined when a passing storm dumps rain with seemingly no notice. There's an external (non-waterproof) pocket for quickly grabbing and stashing essentials like your keys and wallet, plus an internal organizer pocket for safely storing smaller items. And because your daily commute and adventures often extend well past sunset, reflective accents and a tail light attachment ensure you're visible to passing whizzing by on the road.
An ideal solution for the daily commuter who rides in to work or school and then hits the town right after, the Ortlieb Vario QL3. 1 Single Pannier attaches quickly and easily to your bike for the ride in, and then transforms into a backpack with padded shoulder straps once you're out of the saddle. Crafted from a sturdy, waterproof nylon fabric, the Vario keeps all of your gear well-protected from the elements, whether on wheels or on foot, and reflective details throughout boost your overall visibility for adventures that continue after the sun goes down. The Vario is easily mounted to your bike with the QL3. 1 mounting system, and the integrated helmet carrying system offers a stash spot for your lid when you're off the bike.
While we have nothing against the retro cap style of your typical urban fixie, sometimes versatility has to win out over style. Thule's Pack 'n Pedal Commuter Backpack plays the staid, mature older sibling to the devil-may-care messenger bag look, putting function first in a pack that transitions easily between life on two wheels and life on two feet. The main compartment is sealed by a roll top closure, is waterproof, and incorporates reflective elements, but the pack also includes a stowable rain cover with yet more reflective detailing. When it comes to storage, this bag's cup runneth over. It's got an assortment of internal organization, easily accessible outer pockets, and a padded, removable 15in laptop or tablet sleeve. It's even got a reinforced (Thule goes so far as to claim "crush-proof") pocket for glasses and the like. Despite its ability to blend in with pedestrians, the pack features a few cycling-specific storage features, including a helmet attachment point and a U-lock pocket.
