that size range.

recommend attaching flashing lights and a headlight to your bike if you are riding in darkness.

HybridBackpack has a Unique Velcro Locking System that will secure your item(s) and eliminate
any excess strap(s) from Flapping around.
Q: What are other features of HybridBackpack?

Q: What is the advantage of using HybridBackpack over Bungee Cords?
A: HybridBackpack is designed with adjustable straps thus allowing for different types and sizes of item(s).
Bungee cords works most effectively when they are stretched to their maximum length, which can
sometimes be dangerous. There is always the chance that a bungee will slip and cause injury
when it’s being stretched to its maximum. Bungees also break, wear out because of weather, and can
easily be removed from your bike if they are not locked up properly.
Q: Why don't I carry my bag(s) on my back or shoulder when riding?
A: Depending on what you have in your bag(s) the amount of weight will affect your ride. Also consider
the fact that carrying anything on your back while riding will cause you to sweat more. If you want to
arrive at your destination feeling fresh, energetic, and pain-free, consider ordering a HybridBackpack
Q: Can HybridBackpack be left on the bicycle rack?
A: Yes. HybridBackpack has a 1.5" (inch) slot on top that allows you to insert a cable through it then
lock the unit to the bike rack.
*** Cable Lock Not Provided ***
Q: Can HybridBackpack carrying anything other than a backpack, shoulder bag or briefcase?
A: HybridBackpack is designed to carry a backpack, shoulder bag or briefcase and any item measuring
50 inches long from top to bottom and 38 inches from side to side.
Items used with HybridBackpack should not weight more than what's recommended by the
manufacturer of the bike rack.
Q: What is the difference in using HybridBackpack as compared to a Pannier or Side Bags?
A: Panniers are made to go on the sides of the bike rack and they come in different sizes. Smaller
panniers will not be able to hold your bag(s). And larger panniers cost more money. Most panniers
are sold as single unit. For Panniers to be effective you have to buy two of them and you have to
make sure that the weight in each Pannier is the same if not the weight in the back will be uneven.
