Ortlieb's waterproof bikepacking seat bag.
Alongside the Handlebar Pack, this spacious, waterproof seatbag kickstarts Ortlieb’s entrance into the bikepacking arena – bags suitable for more lightweight cycling trips off the beaten track; bags that can be mounted to your bike without racks.
Ortlieb’s seat pack can be fixed to pretty much any seatpost and saddle (see clearances needed below) using the super robust strapping system. Then, once filled with your cycle touring kit, the tried and tested roll closure, adjustable strap fastening system and compression valve ensures the safe, sturdy and waterproof storage of your kit whether rolling over tarmac, or serious gravel.
The elastic cord on the topside of the bag is useful for stuffing additional items – extra layers you use regularly, or things that you pick up on the road.
Given Ortlieb’s experience with panniers, practical things like loops for attaching lights and modest reflective panels are also integrated on the rear of the seat pack to ensure added visibility on the road. And, as a bonus, the seat pack acts as a mudguard.
Use the Ortlieb seat pack alongside the Handlebar Pack and Accessory Pack for a full waterproof bikepacking setup , and even combine them with a set of front panniers, or rear panniers for more luggage space – a hybrid cycle touring setup.

After returning home from a miserable, wet cycle tour of South England in 1981, Hartmut, the founder of Ortlieb, started making a pannier out of red truck tarp on his mother’s sewing machine. He fixed the lid with a piece of webbing strap and used hooks from the hardware store to fix the pack to the bike rack.
The rear pannier was followed by a handle bar bag, and very soon after, the demand was too high for a one man operation so family members and friends were roped in and ORTLIEB was founded in 1982.
Today, Ortlieb is synonymous with cycle travel for making 100% waterproof, practical, and functional luggage and touring accessories. Ortlieb manufacture all of their waterproof products at their production facility in Heilsbronn, Germany. High product quality, durability and their own repair service are integral to Ortlieb’s philosophy.
