Timbuk2 Tandem Pannier
|These two super-durable saddlebag panniers magically transform into a single shoulder bag, thanks to built-in magnets. All traces of pannier-ness disappear with tuck-away attachment clips, while a 15″ laptop pocket makes every commute a beaut. And while it’s not technically “waterproof” because you can’t submerge it in a pool, its fabric-backed tarpaulin fabric makes it super duper water resistant.
Mission Workshop Vandal
|The right bag can make all the difference, and there’s no shortage of choice when it comes to on the bike bags. For the hardcore urban biker, there is no substitute for the versatile and compact challenged Mission Workshop Vandal. It’s hugely expandable, quickly doubling in size from 1,800 cu.in. to 4,000 cu.in. With urethane coated zippers, carbon fiber reinforced internal frame suspension system, waterproof materials, and weather sealed cargo compartments it allows the rider to carry anything and everything.
|For the dedicated shutterbug rider on your list, the Chrome offers the Niko, a weatherproof padded camera bag with Chrome’s iconic quick release buckle. The Niko allows quick access to your camera and gear through a top-loading camera compartment. As with most Chrome products, the Niko is guaranteed for life. The Niko was first introduced earlier this summer and sold out quickly. Chrome has resupplied and the Niko is available now on their website, chromebags.com.
