ConsNot the most comfy
ProsSeems well made, attaches well
I use this to carry my pannier while taking my son to nursery, and then attach the pannier to the rear rack once I've dropped him off and left his seat behind. This product is perfect for that use.
Great but expensive

I had one and lost it and thus wanted to have a new one. I am living in Germany but couldn't find a shop neither real nor online in Germany selling those. Couldn't even find them on the Ortlieb website... Thus I've veen very happy when I found this shop in the UK and ordered 2 of them despite the high price and shipping fees. That's how desperately I wanted them...

Consdeepens your relationship with ortlieb product family
Proslight, comfortable, easy to use, adds value to your existing bags, no break prone parts
If you happen to have an ortlieb pannier bag of any sort, this rucksack adapter is a must buy. One weird thing in the design is that it's better suited for wearing while cycling than while walking... Both fit and centering are adjustable so you can have your bag quite centered, even if you have set it far off to avoid heel overlap. Good ventilation keeps your back relatively cool. Perfect for bike swim hike microadventures

Consnot to cheap, a bit bulky when rolled up,
Proslight, great addition to panniers, not to expensive
Was a little worried having read other reviews that the ruck sack was not all that good, but wanted to take advantage of the super waterproofness of my panniers when of my bike.
The back pack thing is very very light, it does not fold up quiet as small as you might imagine. They panniers fit well on to the backpack, though then the pannier sits a little high on your back. It is not the comfiest rucksack in the world but it works and works well. Would definitely recommend it as a an addition to your panniers, but not as a the perfect rucksack, i recon ortlieb make better dedicated rucksacks.
Questions & Answers (3)
Will the Carradice Super C A4 pannier fit this Ortlieb backpack adapter?
19 Jan 2021
Sadly not, as the Ortlieb backpack adapter only really works for Ortlieb panniers with their clip system fitting.

Thanks, 19.01.21
Ortlieb backpack convertor - how do I remove it from pannier?
25 May 2020
I have one of these and finally got round to using it. I can't work out how to remove the lower fasteners from the pannier bottom outer frame, without unscrewing the frame from the pannier at each end. Am I missing something?
Hi, this video shows how it works Thanks
Is the Ortlieb backpack convertor compatible with other makes?

Hi, I use Vaude panniers, will the Ortlieb backpack convertor ( work on my Vaude panniers?
Hi, this converter has been designed to work with Ortlieb panniers, it is very unlikely that it will work well with Vaude panniers without modification. Thanks
