The Bike Packer Classic is a large bike pannier for the rear rack. With its symmetrical design and slanted shape on both sides, this Ortlieb bag provides enough space so you’ll be able to pedal without clipping your heals on the pannier. It can be used individually either on the left or right side of the bike. Price listed is for a pair of panniers.
Ortlieb has updated shape of the lid and front panels and the panniers include shoulder straps. We also sell the Ortlieb Pannier Backpack System so you can carry them on your back.
The Ortlieb QL1 system used with the Bike Packer Classic panniers allows for fast and easy single-handed mounting and removal of the panniers. Simply lift the top handle to remove the panniers from the rack.
The same goes for attaching them. The QL1 hooks at the top of the panniers can be slid forwards and backwards independently with a quick twist of an allen wrench, letting you place the panniers on your rack anywhere you want them to be (no heal strikes!). They are suitable for racks with a tube diameter up to 16 mm (hook inserts for diameters of 8 and 11 mm are included). There is also a hook at the base of the panniers to secure them to the rack, keeping them from flopping around. I’ve never experienced or seen an Ortlieb pannier fall off a rack while its properly installed.
Two large and highly reflective 3M Scotchlite reflectors ensure safety in the dark.
The PVC fabric with which these panniers are constructed is incredibly durable and completely waterproof. The only way water is getting into these bags is if you completely submerge them and it seeps underneath the lid. This is not a common occurrence when cycling!
