A gentle but firm grip on your seat post or stanchion
The harness is connected to your seat post with a Voile Nano strap around a rubber ring. This keeps the harness steady and does not harm your stanchion. Think of it like a loving hug.
Use your favourite 6–9L dry bag
The harness is designed to work very well with the Ortlieb PS10 7L dry bag. We recommend this as a lightweight, durable option.
The harness also works well with these drybags: Alpkit Airlok Xtra 8L, Sea to Summit Big River 8L and others. If you're after indestructible dry bags look at the Ortlieb PD490 range. This is great for the shorter legged riders among us and helps avoid the bag buzzing the rear tyre. If you do accidentally buzz the tyre the Louise harness protects your dry bag, and the smooth plastic won’t beat your tyre up either.
Carry about 2kg of gear
We often carry a lightweight sleeping bag, sleeping mat, spare undies, socks and a long sleeve merino top. This weighs about 1.7kg and fits snuggly in an 8L Dry Bag. Keeping your load light will help keep your dropper post going uppy downy too.
