Previously known as the Saddle-Bag Two
The ORTLIEB Saddle-Bag is particularly suited for mountain biking and road cycling but is also an ideal supplementary bag for long tours with lots of luggage.
Available in two sizes, both with enough space for a spare tube, repair kit or rain jacket, whereas the larger model with 4.1 L can almost replace a backpack. It functions at the same time as a kind of protection against mud and water spray just like fenders.
Both sizes feature highly luminescent reflectors and daisy chains for fixing a tail light. The roll closure is secured to the sides with buckles. The mounting set is available as an accessory for a second bike. The ORTLIEB Saddle-Bag is made of PVC-free, sturdy nylon fabric, and is sustainably produced in Germany.

Spares and Accessories
ORTLIEB rebranded a number of their products for 2024, the Saddle-Bag was previously called the Saddle-Bag 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 Saddle-Bag and you receive a boxed or bagged product from us branded as Saddle-Bag 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£48.00PVC-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-TopFabricsPS21, PS21RVolume1.6 litresWeight220 gHeight12 cmWidth16 cmDepth19 cm
