Backpack Pannier

Shane Levine

I used these to convert both of my Chrome messenger backpacks into panniers, and it worked like a charm! I can now use my backpacks as both regular backpacks and panniers, which is great. The hooks don't effect comfort when I wear the packs, as they are all the way up at the very top of the strap.

I wish I'd bought these hooks for my bags sooner sooner!

The hooks were a big success. I used them on my front rack by creating a harness with half inch webbing and some homemade tyvek roll-tops. At first, I did a shakedown with a bungee on each bag but that actually pulled things up, though the hooks didn't jump off the rack. Next, I just ran the webbing behind the front rack then under my bags and it was super stable. I'm still surprised by how stable the bags were.

I was on paved roads most of the time with a tiny bit of gravel once in a while. I may try to make more traditional style front panniers or evolve the existing system, but I wouldn't hesitate to do it exactly the same way again.
