This lovely retro-style bag is made to carry over your shoulder, or on your bike. Made by the Goodordering Company of Hackney, East London (in England, for those of you who may still be half asleep), the bag can be quickly converted between shoulder bag, pannier (“saddlebag”) or handlebar bag.
Gooderdering’s range is “inspired by Japanese school bags and 80s retro travel bags,” and it shows. I have owned a few old 1970s airline bags (picked up in thrift stores) and they offer a cool aesthetic combined with lightweight practicality.
The handlebar bag has a padded iPad pocket along with sundry other spots to squirrel away your iPhone and anything else you need for the day. The bag has a pair of vertical straps on the back which you unclip to hook around either the handlebar or the rear bike rack, and if you hook the straps to each other they make a shoulder strap.
The tradeoff for this versatile design is that it just kinda hangs on the handlebar, unlike my awesome Ortlieb handlebar bag which is sturdy and completely accessible as you ride. But my Ortlieb is so bad as an actually carry-bag that it’s not even funny, whereas Gooderdering’s bag is not only a good shoulder bag but looks cool, too.
You can order one direct from the site, for £32 (around $50). Be sire to take a look around, as there are other bike/body bag designs there too.
