Why GrüneStrasse Backpacks?



“As a bicycle commuter, I am stymied by my inability to find a reliable way to transport my business attire from home to the office.  I want to easily pack up my office clothes without a lot of folding and re-packing and get out the door to my bike without a bunch of extra steps.  When I get to the office, I want rapidly clean up and get into my business attire easily—everything I need is with me in the locker room.”

“When I started using the GrüneStrasse bag it changed my whole bike commuting experience and made me realize I have been putting up with other backpacks and messenger bags that were not designed for what I needed. The GrüneStrasse bag is designed perfectly for the bike commuter – with pockets and compartments designed for clothes, laptop/folders, shoes, phone, and much more.  I’ll never go back.  Thanks GrüneStrasse!”

“I typically use pannier bags to transport my items to and from work. I was a bit concerned about using this pack on such a long trek for my first try; I am happy to report that all went well and there was no shifting, sagging, pinching, or any other typical downsides of a backpack on a bike ride. Even on climbs when I’d jump out of the saddle the pack stayed in place and didn’t swing me to one side. A great benefit to this over pannier bags is that the load is always even. The amount of thought put into the pack is incredible. I like the fact that the shoe pouch can be pulled inside out, for easier cleaning and I used the loop on the back to attach an extra tail-light. Safety first! I’m very impressed by the amount of detail placed into the pack and how it fits so well into being used for commuting. The way in which it lays out completely open for packing makes life a lot easier because I am able to see with a quick glance whether or not I did pack something instead of second-guessing myself. This also makes readying myself a lot quicker because I am able to see exactly where everything is and don’t need to dig around the bottom of a black pit for it.”
