Ortlieb's far travelled classic, waterproof rear panniers.
The first product Hartmut, the Ortlieb founder, ever made was a rear pannier from an old red truck tarp, in 1981. Little did he know that Ortlieb panniers would become established as a staple waterproof, practical luggage option for travelling cyclists around the world.
Now, after years of product development, the Ortlieb Back-Roller Classic rear panniers are made of durable, waterproof fabrics and integrate improved, flexible mounting systems for loading pretty much any touring bike and rack. The tried and tested roll closure ensures safe and waterproof storage of food and equipment.
Use the Back-Roller rear panniers on their own for ample luggage space on a classic tour, or combine them with the Ultimate 6M Handlebar Bag, 31L Rackpack, and even the Front-Roller Classic front panniers, for the ideal waterproof, fully loaded touring setup.
Repeat chores like packing and unpacking your panniers, and bike become quick and easy; they are practical touring companions. Internally, the panniers have a useful integrated pocket, and a zipped pocket – ideal for smaller items so you know exactly where they are when you need them. When off the bike, the panniers also have a (detachable) shoulder strap for easy carrying.
The Back-Roller rear panniers also combine perfectly with the 31L RackPack – the bags clip tight together for additional fixing and stability when riding.
