Timbuk2 Tandem Pannier $83.85
Back in ancient times, villagers might have thought you possessed magical powers after witnessing you transform the Timbuk2 Tandem Pannier from an over-the-shoulder bag into dual saddle bags. In more recent times, you're seen as a savvy bike commuter with a streamlined set-up and no more back sweat from lugging around a hefty pack.
It securely attaches to any bike pannier rack with its hook-and-loop straps, then comes off to sling over your shoulder as you stroll around town, climb stairs to the office, or pop into the local library to return some books. Magnetic clasps ingeniously hide its pannier persona by securing both bags in carry mode. External lid pockets give you quick access to your keys and wallet while the 15-inch laptop sleeve secures your favorite laptop en route to work.

Perfect for rainy commutes
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
My partner has used the Tandem for about 6 months on his hour long commute to work. It's super easy to take on and off his rack with the velcro strips and even when it's been raining his gear has stayed dry. He loves the zipper pocket on the outside that he can use to put his phone in for easy access. Added bonus, it looks pretty slick!
"This dual saddlebag pannier magically transforms into a single shoulder bag when toted off bike. Durable fabric with clever reflective hits make this a champion on and off bike. Thanks to built-in magnets, all traces of pannier-ness disappear for carting over the shoulder or by the top grab handles. An internal padded 15"" laptop pocket makes every commute a beauty. Do it in a downpour. The Tandem will keep the contents of your bag dry for several hours in the rain."
