The BikePacking range is ORTLIEB's new adventure touring collection of waterproof bags for the more adventurous tourers to favour the backcountry and off-road adventures which may require bikes without pannier racks.
Available in two sizes, the Handlebar-Bag keeps your gear dry no matter the weather conditions, its unique cylindrical shape holds up to either 15 or 9 litres and both are suited for soft, stuffable items such as clothing or sleeping bag - in particular for the larger 15-litre version.
Both sizes feature a robust nylon PS21R fabric construction ensures durability and because of the twin roll closure system allows for packaged contents to be both easily accessed but also to be stored centrally inside the bag which given its width is quite important in terms of balance.
The Handlebar-Pack fits easily and securely to the bars using twin straps and adjustable spacers, the lightweight internal stiffener and stem strap both further improve the security and stability of the pack. Straps with hook and loop closures help to attach the bag to the bars. Additional gear can be stowed externally using the shock cord and compressions traps, alternatively, the optional Accessory Pack can be easily attached to the front of the pack.
ORTLIEB has made some minor improvements to the Handlebar-Pack - firstly, the new attractive Matte Black colourway replaces the classic Slate but as with the BikePacking Seat-Pack they have added little toggles to the purge valve which will help open them when you need to release the air trapped inside the bag as you roll close it.
Also, a small Camlock has been added to the stabilizing strap which extends around the top of your headtube which will make it easier to release.
Handlebar-Pack 9 litres
