Hybrid backpack-pannier bag

Panniers are a great way to add useful on-board storage to your bike, whether you’re going cycle touring or commuting across town. But most panniers are awkward to carry around. The solution is Ortlieb’s innovative Vario PS. This hybrid 26-litre pannier doubles as a backpack, giving you the best of both worlds. Featuring the brand’s Quick-Lock attachment systems on one side and a padded carrying system with chest strap and ergonomic shoulder straps on the other, it transforms from backpack to pannier in a flash. A flap with an integrated pocket covers the side that is not in use, keeping everything neat and tidy. It also boasts a zippered quick access outer pocket, a padded laptop sleeve and a waterproof rolltop closure – perfect for everyday use or more intrepid all-weather adventures

    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.
