Keep your possessions safe and secure with the Ortlieb Downtown pannier bag. This waterproof briefcase keeps the elements out and will fit documents and laptops up to 15.4".
The Ortlieb Downtown can be quickly mounted and taken off your rack with a single hand and is a great way to carry extra gear without loading up your pockets or wearing a heavy backpack.
An extra wide shoulder strap and additional carry handle makes for easy transport while edge protectors improve daily durability. A great safety feature on these pannier bags is the use of 2 large 3M Scotchlite reflectors to improve your visibility in low light conditions.
The Ortlieb bag is available in two versions: with QL2.1 or QL3.1 mounting system.
What are pannier bags?
Pannier bags hang from the sides of luggage racks and enable you to carry heavy loads with minimal fuss. A pannier either side evenly distributes weight and lowers the bike’s centre of gravity, although you can just use one for smaller loads.
Who needs pannier bags?
Panniers are great for commuting, as you can fit in everything you need – a change of clothes, shoes, lunch, laptop, files, etc. On a grander scale, panniers are the ideal accompaniment for touring adventures, as the equivalent of a suitcase.
What are the choices?
The pannier choice is vast, from attractive designs to classic colour schemes. Waterproofing is an obvious factor, to prevent soggy luggage. Panniers with straps mean you can easily transfer them from the bike and use as a bag and plenty of pockets or separate compartments make organisation a doddle.
What should I buy with them?
Panniers need a rack to hang from. If you’re hanging one at the front, you’ll need oversized bars. At the back, you’ll need eyelets in the frame for a rack or you can find quick release racks, although these carry less weight.
Panniers make a great alternative to backpacks when it comes to preventing back injuries.
