The new version of the Ortlieb Vario Backpack Pannier converts in seconds from a bicycle pannier attached to a rack to a comfortable backpack with nice straps and a padded back piece. 

One side of the bag is setup for bike use, and the other for backpack use. A fabric cover pulls laterally around the bag allowing you to change the setup in seconds. Unlike previous versions, there is no need to click on or remove any part of the bag and no small parts to get lost or seperated.

Backpack or pannier? With the versatile and innovative Vario PS, you no longer have to ask yourself this question. Featuring Ortlieb's Quick-Lock attachment systems on one side and a padded carrying system with chest strap and ergonomic shoulder straps on the other, the Vario PS transforms from backpack to pannier faster than ever before. A so-called Flap with an integrated pocket covers the side that is not in use. And for any items that you need quick access to, there is a zippered outer pocket. Everything else can be accessed via the practical and proven roll closure, including your laptop for which a padded compartment is provided. This waterproof hybrid bag is PVC-free and sustainably manufactured in Germany.
