Customer reviews for Ortlieb Bike Packer Classic Pannier Pair

Ortlieb Bike Packer Classic Pannier Pair

ORTLIEB products are characterized by tightly sealed closure systems: for example roll closures, waterproof zippers, velcro, or sliding seal closures. Many of the design features are patented and serve as the benchmark in the bike and outdoor market. Rear pannier with optimised shape. Two 40-litre panniers should be able to carry everything you need for a reasonable length trip without unbalancing your bike. Splash proof fabric helps protect your kit one wet days and Ortlieb's tightly sealed lid further prevents the ingress of water. Large reflectors enhance your nighttime visibility.

Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight
Great Panniers for space , ease of use and waterproofness. I know you pay a bit more but at the end of the day it's worth the difference. When you buy something like this , it's because you appreciate technical quality and you want something to do the job properly. You want to Tour, get ortleib panniers. Simple.

Ortlieb Panniers - Great Investment

PostedMay 21, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great, waterproof, spacious
These panniers are very practical and spacious. They are fully waterproof which makes them perfect for the purpose I bought them for: commuting. It's great to get to work in the rain and be able to jump into dry clothes and shoes. As the panniers are so large, there is even room for winter layers. I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend.

A1 Quality - but maybe not your best choice

PostedSeptember 24, 2010
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Rock solid design, materials and construction. Ortlieb top notch as usual. Converts into a shoulder bag, which is useful, but not for heavy loads. If you want everyday ease of access for small loads choose the roll top paniers from Ortlieb, which I also have.

Pros: Good value, Good quality
Cons: Heavy
I bought these for a cycling trip through France and Spain. These are well designed, robust panniers. They remained truly waterproof during heavy rain in the Pyrenees. A little heavier than some panniers (as one expects from waterproof ones).
