Previously known as the Packman Pro Two
The new ORTLIEB Packman is a universal waterproof daypack that has been completely redesigned.
With its roll closure, it offers optimal protection for your gear even under the most extreme weather conditions. The S-shaped ergonomic shoulder straps with reflective stripes, chest strap and waist strap with padding, and the optimized, breathable back system ensure top carrying comfort.
An elastic neoprene front pocket with a zipper (not waterproof!) and an integrated organizer keep things tidy and in place. A stow-away helmet flap is quickly at hand for fixing a bike helmet.
The pack also features a watertight passage (hermetically sealed from the inside) for a drinking tube (hydration system not included) for average tube diameters up to 10.5 mm.
With its generous twenty-five litre volume, the new Packman is the right choice as a daypack, carry-on or for a weekend trip.

FormerlyPackman Pro Two
ORTLIEB rebranded a number of their products for 2024, the Packman was previously called the Packman Pro Two.
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 Packman and you receive a boxed or bagged product from us branded as Packman Pro Two 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£145.00PVC-free?YesIP RatingIP64
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.ClosureRoll-TopFabricsPS33Volume25 litresWeight1020 gHeight47 cmWidth28 cmDepth15 cm
