Life on two wheels is tough on your gear, especially in the urban jungle. So, you need a bag that can keep up. Ortlieb’s Messenger Bag is a well-proven bag used by bike couriers and messengers in some of the world’s biggest and busiest cities. The slim, functional design works with the tough, waterproof materials to ensure weather-defying versatility and lifetime durability. A ventilated foam back panel and stable harness ensures the bag sits comfortably and close to the body, which is vital for sprints and abrupt braking (when cabbies pull out on you, for example). Contoured straps with reflective strips plus side reflectors ensure you stay safe and seen in low light. And the large main compartment will swallow big loads

    The first Ortlieb bag was invented in Germany in 1981, after founder Hartmut Ortlieb got back from a very wet bikepacking adventure in (you guessed it) Southern England. Inspired by tarpaulins he’d seen lashed on the truck beds of lorries, he fashioned a pair of bike panniers from red truck tarp, which he stitched at home on his mother’s sewing machine.

    A year later he founded his own company, buoyed by early success and positive feedback from friends. In the following years, young Hartmut came up with a series of innovations that would define the modern drybag, using high frequency welded seams and roll-top closures. He even developed the first self-locking mounting system to attach panniers to bike frames.

    Today, Ortlieb remains the first and most trusted choice for adventures and expeditions on land or sea – a brand name synonymous with waterproof protection and super-tough, outdoor-ready gear.
