I Couldn’t Find the Perfect Commuter Backpack, So I Built One.

However, what I have failed to find is a stylish around-town pack that can also function as a pannier. That is the problem I have attempted to solve with this project.

Open vs Closed

Textile Knowledge:

For the exterior elements of my bikepack I chose to use a black 600x300 Denier Polyester fabric with 0.55mm PVC Embossed Backing (right). For the accent exterior element, I used a white 1.9oz Coated Ripstop Nylon Fabric (center). And, for the interior lining and pocket elements, I used a silver 200 Denier Coated Oxford Nylon Fabric (right)
