The Vario PS: A Backpack & A Pannier
Ortlieb's Vario PS Backpack/Pannier is an innovative hybrid with highly versatile dual applications as both a bike bag and waterproof rolltop commuter backpack. The bag's quick, intuitive conversion between modes employs a reversible front pocket design which quickly converts from QL2.1 mount to a full-coverage padded carrying system.
The backpack's ergonomic shoulder straps are lined with reflective trim that is highly visible in both pannier and backpack mode. Structured interior and exterior pocketing includes a laptop sleeve, convenient carrying handle and stabilizing chest strap.
