Full backpack and practical bike bag in one? Does not exist? There is!

The ORTLIEB Vario is the solution for all who commute by bike to work or university - and in the lunch break or in the evening like to stroll in the city.

The waterproof Vario made of sturdy nylon fabric is a real space miracle! He offers enough storage space for A4 documents and a 15.4 "laptop, food for the lunch break and a few purchases on top. It can be attached to the bike with either the Quick-Lock3.1 or the Quick-Lock2.1 mounting system.

After the ride, it is converted to a backpack in no time: To do so, simply remove the padded back carrying system with shoulder straps and chest strap from the spacious front pocket and hook it onto the back of the bag. Thanks to an integrated holder, the bike helmet can also be securely attached to the backpack.
