The ORTLIEB Back-Roller City Pannier Bags - Flexibility for the city bike

The waterproof Back-Roller City by ORTLIEB are the perfect companions for bikers who are at home in the city and are looking for rear panniers with plenty of storage space that are suitable for everyday use. With a capacity of 20 litres per bag, they offer you plenty of space for shopping and errands, or you can carry your sports gear for a visit to the gym. The roll closure protects the inside from moisture and dirt and can be fixed on the side by means of clasps. With the Quick-Lock1 mounting system, you can attach them individually or in pairs to your rear rack in no time at all. The upper QL hooks and the lower sliding hooks are adjustable with a size 3 hex tool. As you are seldom alone on city streets, bright reflectors made of 3M™-Scotchlite™ are located on the sides of the bag to increase road safety.

Quick-Lock1 Mount System
The Quick-Lock 1 system is ORTLIEB's first mounting system for bicycle bags that can be attached to and removed from the pannier rack with just one hand. By lifting the bag by the handle, the hooks can be locked and unlocked automatically. When the handle is lifted, the hooks on the back of the bag open so that it can be hooked onto the pannier rack. As soon as you release the handle again, the hooks enclose the pannier rack tube. In order to optimally adapt the system and prevent it from sliding back and forth, it can be individually adjusted for pannier racks with a tube diameter of 8 to 16 mm by means of reducers in various sizes. The hooks can be adjusted with the help of a size 3 hex tool. The lower sliding hook of the bag is responsible for securing the lower bag area by enclosing a vertical pannier rack strut. Depending on the pannier rack's height, the elliptical rail can be turned upwards. The lower hook is adjustable both horizontally and vertically on a semi-elliptical rail and can be rotated in 15-degree increments.

These are good durable bags. The very first thing I did with them was a 13 day bikepacking trip. They did great, even though they were really tightly packed full. Now I use them for the weekly grocery shop and they're still as good as new after 6 months.

Very good quality, completely waterproof, very roomy.
It could do with an updated clamping system, but still a very good product.

Отличное качество. Оптимальные для меня габариты. Кому важен объём, рекомендую присмотреться к классической версии, туда уместится больше вещей, но есть лайфхак (или колхоз), сделать проставки из двух фастексов на стяжках между собой и тем самым удлинить штатные застежки, тогда и в эту версию влезет ощутимо больше вещей.

Looks like good bags, waterproof and sturdy. They are waiting for their first big travel but I believe they will cope. The only downsides are absence of internal pockets for small stuff and the junction of handles and hooks (seems not too solid).

We use two pairs of classic Ortlieb bags and took a couple of City. Good looking, nice price. No pockets inside and shoulder strap, but very very high quality. Highly recommend!
