The Ortlieb Vario QL2.1 Pannier bag is in fact two bags in one. The Vario can also double up to be a handy backpack, so when you come to leave your bike locked up, you are able to carry the bag in comfort and style. It is the perfect solution for passionate touring and mountain bikers who continue to climb the top at the end of the trail, or for a stroll through town by bike or on foot. The padded carrying system offers top comfort, and the adjustable shoulder and chest straps are individually adjustable. When used as bike pannier, the carrying system can be easily taken off and stowed away in the zippered front pocket.
