Vaude Silk Road II – Zinger & Quick Review


The Zinger of the day is the Vaude Silk Road II at 20% of for $39. That’s the deal on this great little rack-top bag for the next week thru October 25th.

To get the ball rolling, here is a a quick review on the bag’s form and function.

To start out, I will just say that this bag packs a punch when it comes to value. This bag is incredibly feature rich for a rack-top bag at this price point. Going down the list, it’s got 2 side-pockets for small items, an expandable main compartment with a removable pouch, a cargo net upper, a rear water bottle holder, an included shoulder strap and an included rain cover. All of these features are brought together elegantly with Vaude’s styling and quality.

The Silk Road II, pictured here mounted to a Tubus Logo will quikly mount to any standard style bicycle rack and is easy to tote as a shoulder bag when off the bike. The bags main compartment area has formed foam walls, both for maintaining its shape and offering insulation should you be using it to carry your lunch or a picnic.

This bag looks classy as well. the black and grey compliment eachother and will look good with almost any rack and bike color scheme. I think it would be hard to go wrong with this bag if this is the style you are looking for, especially at the current sale price of $39.
