Good quality, lots of clever storage, but very poor mounting system,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Union 34 Stripe Rucksack Pannier Bag (Sports)
Thought this would be the perfect solution for me, as i can clip it onto my bike to get to work/college, then convert it into a backpack when needed to carry around, however this product failed on me on several occasions.
The system that connects the bag to the pannier rack is hugely flawed and has the tendency to throw itself off the bike when going over even small bumps, for me the bag jumped off my bike around 6-7 times in a 2 month period, before i simply drilled a hole and put a bolt through to stop it from coming off.
The bungee on the bottom of the bag holding it to the bottom of the bike frame wore out for me after only 3-4 weeks of usage and with only a very light load and none aggressive cycling, i have ended up buying a separate bungee and connecting it my own way using the two loops on either side of the bag.
Overall its a relatively well built bag, it has some nice features and clever storage spaces, but has a badly flawed mounting system and poor bungee which degrades fast, i was very disappointed to have to modify my bag in order to get it to work properly, especially considering the price. would not recommend
