Product Description

?Good news for all of those on the lookout for a convenient, waterproof bag to transport their belongings: the proven Ortlieb “bike trunk” is now available with a Velcro roll closure! The closure of the Trunk-Bag RC also serves as a convenient carrying handle. With a 12-litre payload and a shoulder strap, the waterproof bag that mounts on top of your bike rack is ideally suited for longer tours and brief forays to the supermarket. Even when the bag is fully loaded, your smartphone, wallet and keychain remain quickly accessible thanks to the inside pocket and carabiner, as well as an additional, non-waterproof exterior pouch. The Rack-Lock Adapter, the winner of the Eurobike Award, ensures that the bag fits on virtually any bike rack with a width of 60 to 160 mm. Clip it on, secure it and remove it again. It’s a snap!

Key Features:
  • Durable rip-stop nylon fabric
  • Reflector
  • Mounting for additional rear light (not included)
  • 10kg maximum load

Not sure may yet return

I have a number of Ortlieb products. This trunk bag is up to their usual quality - but quite expensive of course - and the attachment mechanism looks excellent BUT I'm not sure about the closure. I'm a big fan of the roll-closure design which I have found VG on Ortlieb panniers. These however have substantial straps/clips to hold the roll closed whereas the trunk bag relies on velcro (and not as many turns of the roll so not sure it will prove water tight). Bottom line is that I haven't actually tried the trunk bag on a bike yet as I'm considering returning it to swap for the zip closure version. I wonder why Ortlieb haven't fitted a strap/clip closure in addition to the velcro. I'm sure this would improve both security and sealing.

Bike Bags Guide

What are bike bags?

Bike bags are a simple way to carry any type of cargo, either on your back in the form of a rucksack or attached to your bike.

Who needs bike bags?

Bike bags are really versatile – use them to accompany rides of any distance, whether they are for work or play.  Plenty of pockets will help even the most disorganised of riders.

What are the choices?

The choice of bike bag is huge, from a a simple seatpack with a spare tube and repair kit, to a pair of panniers for an expedition. There are also rucksacks and hydration packs for your back, holdalls and handlebar bags available.

What should I buy with them?

You’ll need a fork-mounted rack for front panniers and a rear rack for rear panniers.

Anything else?

Always buy a bag slightly larger than the one you’ll think you need. It’s surprising how many things you might need to pack.
