In 1982, Hartmut Ortlieb founded ORTLIEB in Nürnberg. In 1997 the firm relocated to the Franconian town of Heilsbronn, not far from Nuremberg.
The first ORTLIEB bike panniers were created in pure personal need for waterproof equipment – it wasn't available at that time! ORTLIEB's first products were hand-made on his mother's sewing machine: dry bags and bicycle panniers made of truck tarps. These prototypes were tested by Hartmut and his friends on self-organized bicycle and climbing tours. What started very simple has soon developed into a story of success.
Any of the fully waterproof Ortlieb bike bags are an ideal companion to take with you on all of your bike ventures. No matter whether you're planning a short trip or an extended mega tour Ortlieb will have your back.
The waterproof Ortlieb Saddle-Bag is a great day ride bag. It's particularly suited for mountain and road biking, but is also an ideal supplementary bag for long tours with lots of luggage. Even the small version offers enough space for a spare tube, repair kit or rain jacket, whereas the larger model with 4.1L almost replaces a backpack. It functions at the same time as kind of protection against mud and water spray.
Both models feature highly luminescent reflectors and daisy chains for fixing a rear light. The roll closure is secured to the sides with buckles.
