Previously known as the BikePacking Toptube Frame-Pack
The ORTLIEB Toptube Frame-Pack is the smart solution for all who want to use their frame’s main triangle for storage space without having to do without their water bottle. The solution also works for those who have full-suspension mountain bikes with limited triangle space.
This new smaller 3-litre capacity Frame-Pack Toptube still provides plenty of space for heavy equipment such as tent poles, tools and food supplies, while also helping to secure a low centre for improved rising performance. And given that the bag and its TIZIP zipper (updated version) are waterproof, you can even cross rivers on your Bike Packing adventures without worrying about your stuff getting wet.
The Frame-Pack attaches easily to your top tube and seat tube with the help of sturdy and highly adhesive Velcro straps.

FormerlyBikePacking Toptube Frame-Pack
ORTLIEB rebranded a number of their products for 2024, the Toptube Frame-Pack was previously called the BikePacking Toptube Frame-Pack.
We expect the outer packaging for such products will continue to show the previous product name for some time into 2024 as ORTLIEB use up their stocks of pre-existing packaging, so if you order a Toptube Frame-Pack and you receive a boxed or bagged product from us branded as BikePacking Toptube Frame-Pack then don't worry about it - you have recieived the product you ordered. For further information, we have a dedicated page highlighting the changes across the ORTLIEB product portfolio for 2024 onwards.Year2024MSRP£110.00PVC-free?YesIP RatingIP67
IP Ratings Explanation
IP Ratings or Ingress Protection Ratings is an internationally recognised means of rating products of various types in terms of their capacity to prevent dust or liquids from engrossing into them or through them, pretty much all of ORTLIEB’s products bare an IP rating.
The tl;dr as possible explanation is as follows;
The first digit represents the products resistance to dust with ratings ratings above 4 being resistant to anything larger than 1mm and ratings of 5 and 6 being pretty much impenetrable.
The second digit represents the products resistance to liquids, this rating is slightly more complicated than first as aspects such as the pressure of the water being sprayed onto the product and the angle matter.
A rating of 3 means the product can handle sprays of water hitting it within 60 degrees from vertical (basically, this isn’t a problem unless you plan on riding through a typhoon or on a normal summers day here in the Lake District), ratings 4 and above can handle water hitting it from any direction.
Products which bare a rating of 7 (such as some of the BikePacking and Attack products) are the Andy McNab’s of the scale as they’ll handle high pressure water jets from any direction and submersion up to 1 meter in depth.
It’s worth noting that to achieve these ratings, products must be property closed and in some cases with bags which feature roll closures a number of roles are required - each product such have a PDF data sheet available which may detail ORTLIEB’s requirements to achieve the IP rating they’ve been awarded.ClosureTIZIPFabricsPS21R, PS33Volume3 litresWeight170 gHeight15 cmWidth40 cmDepth6 cm
