The Messenger Briefcase: this hip city bag is a rear pannier on the bike and a messenger style fashion statement off the saddle.  Our top choice for urban professionals, and students who don't want to look like they're carrying panniers around town, or across campus. The Messenger fits comfortably across your shoulder, a Velcro flap hides the Cam-Lock attachment system, a suspended and padded laptop pouch keeps your computer safe, and easy access compartments - inside and out - make it your office away from home.


The Switchback: A two-in-one bag- sleek and functional backpack and kick ass rear pannier that fits regular rear racks AND slides onto our Randonneur Rack! Talk about versatility. With 1000 cubic inches of space, a big main compartment, handy front pockets, mesh pouch, reflectors and a holder for your lighting system you're free to move from bike to hiking trail in a heartbeat.
