Alongside the Seat Pack, this handlebar bag kickstarts Ortlieb’s entrance into the bikepacking arena – waterproof bags suitable for bike camping trips off-the-beaten-track; bags that can be mounted to most bike without racks.
Ortlieb’s handlebar pack can be fixed to pretty much any handlebar setup (see clearances needed below) using the strap and foam spacing system – drop bars included, given the width flexibility of the roll-closure. Once packed, the compression straps and secure mounting system ensures the safe, sturdy and waterproof storage of your kit whether rolling over tarmac, or serious gravel.
The elastic cords on the front of the bag are 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 modest reflective panels are also integrated on the front of the pack to ensure added visibility on the road.
This bag is designed to connect with the Accessory Pack, using the practical alloy hooks. Use them alongside the Seat 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 cross setup.
