Bottom Line A high-quality, consistently top-ranked design that is often imitated by others.A versatile design with plenty of storage in a durable and waterproof package.A well-built and affordable touring pannier that is fully waterproof and user-friendly.An impressively built model with huge volume and simple design, but the mounting system leaves more to be desired.A lightweight example of Ortlieb's classic quality and design.
