It is not easy to convert it into a backpack
on 28 August 2016
What I found with Vaude bags that suppose to convert into backbacks it is next to impossible to fold the back panel tidily into the base of the bag when converting it into a rucksack. It doesn't do it easily leaving the sides partially unzipped.
My husband and I had to fiddle for about 7 minutes sitting comfortably on the living room floor to fold it in - and this is with a new empty bag when you can easily turn it whatever way you want.
I cannot really picture myself riding to work and then trying to fold the panel in somewhere on the street when your bag is full of staff and heavy.
Carrying it by the handle is awkward - like any pannier where the handle is on the side it dandles inwards, hitting your leg.
