This is ONE Genuine Vintage East German Military Surplus Backpack (circa 1960's & 1970's) that I modify to be used as Bicycle Pannier when attached to your bicycle rack.Each bag is custom fitted with an internal black ABS stiffening back panel, giving the bag a tough and flexible support structure for mounting purposes. The stiffening panel is attached using low profile Stainless Steel to keep from damaging your valuables inside the bag (like your laptop & iPad).
I hand craft and attach three Fully Adjustable Soft Pannier mounts (see 3rd pic)<--- for reference
-Will not scratch rack tubing/paint
-Accommodates virtually any size diameter pannier rack tubing
-Easy mounting with quick release buckles
-Super strong and secure mounts like what is used on motorcycles
-Fully adjustable for a custom fit
-Serviceable: mounted with nuts and bolts so they can easily be removed/replaced
-Pannier Mounts are spaced 7 .75" apart on center
Each bag comes with adjustable backpack straps (see pics)
