Ortlieb Bags & Panniers


Ortlieb's story is legendary: soaked by constant rain, Hartmut Ortlieb stands in the hilly landscape of southern England in 1981, looking forward with little anticipation to another night in a wet sleeping bag and clammy clothes as a truck drives past him. Also exposed to continuous rain, but with dry cargo. This is the birth of an idea that became reality a short time later and world-famous within a few years: 100% waterproof panniers made out of Ortlieb truck tarpaulin. Until today cyclists and city nomads enjoy the bags of the German manufacturer from Heilsbronn, which are not only absolutely waterproof, but also robust, super practical and stylish. In our assortment you will find, beside classical panniers, backpacks, handlebar bags, saddle bags and frame bags by Ortlieb.
