You're on day four of your bikepacking trip, and your freshly river-washed chamois didn't dry out last night. Not to worry, though, you've got your Ortlieb Mesh Pocket to let the air pass through it all day. This convenient bag can be secured to just about any pannier with the included mounting hardware, holding on snugly to the outside with room for a pair of shoes or a helmet in its lofty mesh bag, and folding up neatly when its not in use, while adding in a boost of reflective tape for visibility. The bag itself is made from a light mesh to let air in all day, and features a drawcord closure that cinches down to secure your gear for the ride ahead.
Its hard to beat the storage capacity and ease of use that panniers offer when you're commuting by bike, but there's no doubt that they can pose some challenges, too. Namely, off-bike carrying. Some brands offer shoulder straps to enable briefcase-style slinging, but designers at Ortlieb weren't content with just the simplest solutions -- that's why they've crafted the Pannier Carrying System. This device quickly converts your pannier into a backpack, with a thermally molded foam back pad to take the pressure off, and padded, comfortable shoulder straps that keep things comfortable as you make your way on foot. The system can be connected to assorted Ortlieb panniers, including the Front-and-back rollers, bike packer, sport packer, bike tourer, velo-shopper, and bike shopper, enabling you to get the most out of your panniers when you leave the bike behind.
Whether you're making your rounds in the city on your daily commute, or embarking on a quick weekend overnighter by bike, the Ortlieb Sport-Packer Classic Panniers Pair makes for the perfect partners for the trip. They pack you up with 15-liters of space in each bag, for a imaginable load that's not too big for your daily commute. Inside you'll find a pocket for smaller bits you need to keep organized, and a large compartment for a change of clothes, work documents, or your cooking setup for a night in the woods. The bags are crafted from durable nylon that stands up to the rough roads, and feature a flip-top lid with a dust/snow gasket underneath to keep your contents clean and dry. The secure easily to just about any pannier rack with the included QL2. 1 fixing system, which is compatible with up to 16-millimeter diameter rails. When you reach your destination, you'll be happy to find included shoulder straps that make carrying your load into the office a breeze.
Always ready for what lies ahead, the Ortlieb Sport-Roller Free Panniers are packed with waterproof goodness, and the space you need to load up for a quick get away. They pack in 25-liters of storage space, and an integrated interior pocket for staying organized, making them ideal for either your daily commute, or packing up for a light bike tour. Outside they are crafted from burly polyurethane-coated polyester that shields your gear from the elements, without the use of PVC. It mounts securely to nearly any pannier rack with a tube diameter of 16-millimeters or less, and comes along with adapters for running on bikes with 8, 10, and 12-millimeter tubes, while fighting scratches on your rack. Should your ride take you through dim alley ways, or shady canyon roads, reflective Scotchlite patches shine brightly under headlights to help you stay visible as you make your way on your adventure.
Its no secret that most of us would prefer to spend as much time on our bikes as possible on any given day, and to help us get the most out of our two-wheeled friends Ortlieb offers the Trunk Bag. This handy bag rides neatly on your rear pannier rack, and offers a whopping 8-liters of space to pack in groceries and bulky items on the ride. It can replace your traditional panniers, or pair up with them to boost your loaded capacity for days when you've got quite a few errands to embark on. Built to hold up to serious downpours and road abuse, the Trunk Bag is crafted from waterproof polyurethane coated nylon that sheds water like its going out of style, while holding to to abrasion. It features two external non-waterproof neoprene pockets for items that can withstand some wheelspray, and a zippered internal pocket to keep your wallet and phone securely stashed. And since your rides rarely stop when the sun starts to dip, two lateral reflectors shine brightly under headlights to keep you visible when your adventures take you out past the light of day.
Designed for those picking up groceries and carrying bulky items on their bike, the Ortlieb Trunk Bag RC replaces your traditional pannier or commuter pack by attaching to a rear-mounted rack. Ortleib's Rack-Lock system attaches to practicably any rear-mounted bike rack on the market, ranging from 2. 4 to 6. 3 inches across. Ortlieb claims it'll carry up to 22 pounds, so you can use the Trunk Bag RC on bike touring adventures and everyday rides to pick up your groceries. It's designed to be impervious to heavy downpours and road spray with its waterproof fabric and roll-top closure, meaning your precious items won't become ruined when a passing storm dumps rain with seemingly no notice. There's an external (non-waterproof) pocket for quickly grabbing and stashing essentials like your keys and wallet, plus an internal organizer pocket for safely storing smaller items. And because your daily commute and adventures often extend well past sunset, reflective accents and a tail light attachment ensure you're visible to passing whizzing by on the road.
An ideal solution for the daily commuter who rides in to work or school and then hits the town right after, the Ortlieb Vario QL3. 1 Single Pannier attaches quickly and easily to your bike for the ride in, and then transforms into a backpack with padded shoulder straps once you're out of the saddle. Crafted from a sturdy, waterproof nylon fabric, the Vario keeps all of your gear well-protected from the elements, whether on wheels or on foot, and reflective details throughout boost your overall visibility for adventures that continue after the sun goes down. The Vario is easily mounted to your bike with the QL3. 1 mounting system, and the integrated helmet carrying system offers a stash spot for your lid when you're off the bike.
While we have nothing against the retro cap style of your typical urban fixie, sometimes versatility has to win out over style. Thule's Pack 'n Pedal Commuter Backpack plays the staid, mature older sibling to the devil-may-care messenger bag look, putting function first in a pack that transitions easily between life on two wheels and life on two feet. The main compartment is sealed by a roll top closure, is waterproof, and incorporates reflective elements, but the pack also includes a stowable rain cover with yet more reflective detailing. When it comes to storage, this bag's cup runneth over. It's got an assortment of internal organization, easily accessible outer pockets, and a padded, removable 15in laptop or tablet sleeve. It's even got a reinforced (Thule goes so far as to claim "crush-proof") pocket for glasses and the like. Despite its ability to blend in with pedestrians, the pack features a few cycling-specific storage features, including a helmet attachment point and a U-lock pocket.
