Ortlieb Bikepacking Range 2021 – Pack Everything and Ride Everywhere

by 0

Will the 2021 Ortlieb Bikepacking range make sleeping in a bush or bivvy just that little bit more luxurious? With this much carry space, there's room to pack for comfort.

Being a bikepacker in the grim north east of England, keeping gear dry is an absolute priority. If I ended up in a soggy sleeping bag, my relationship with the offending bag that had carried it would end VERY abruptly.

Bags also need to be tough, as I’m partial to the odd clumsy crash in the rocks of Scotland or the Lake District.

Ortlieb gear has a reputation for being waterproof and tough, so my expectations were high. Besides these critical aspects, ease of fitting and stability when riding are also high on my ‘essential qualities’ check list.
